Juliette is miffed because Rayna and Liam are ignoring her on stage. She’s also peeved to learn that the two of them are hitching a ride on her private jet.

An article comes out about Deacon’s fallout with the Revel Kings. It’s not a flattering piece. It makes it seem as though he’s fallen off the wagon. Because of the article, Deacon doesn’t feel like he’s the best person to speak for Jolene at her court hearing. The attorney agrees that in would be better if Juliette speaks on her mom’s behalf. Her speech to the judge is less-than-compelling. Jolene is told she must complete her rehab program, but she’s free to be Deacon’s plus-one at the “Wrong Song” bash. Juliette isn’t thrilled that her mom is crashing the party.
Rayna learns that Calista is interested in stealing her away from Edgehill. Liam is the one who set all this in motion. It’s obvious he has more than a professional interest in his partner. Rayna went down that road once before with Deacon, who lets her know that he’s moving out to the cabin for awhile. These two have an intense chat that doesn’t end well. Deacon is bitter about the fact that Rayna didn’t wait for him back when he was drinking. He thinks she lost faith in him. She assures him that wasn’t/isn’t the case.
