I only have written about couple Smash episodes. Never thought I would post something about Nashville episode (just because I’m too darn lazy). So, About the latest episode “A Picture from Life’s Other Side.”
1. Rayna, Teddy, Deacon, and Lamar:
Rayna and Deacon were, and are meant to be together (not that I necessarily ship that couple… I’m more Rayna x Liam. *sigh*). Although I think they’re moving forward a little too quickly. She is in middle of finalizing her divorce and picking up the pieces of broken family (both the family she is from, and the one she has formed), besides of taking care of her career.
I know Teddy is the one who actually made a move to break family apart, but I understood his frustration when he saw his kids with Deacon. Since he already knows the truth about Maddie’s biological father, it would be hard for him to take. I liked how Rayna visited Teddy at the end, assured to him that Maddie will be always his daughter. Glad she made a reasonable gesture toward her ex-husband (even though this movement will be for nothing since Maddie found out about her birth at the end… *sigh 2*).
With Lamar, Rayna is really trying to catch up with the lost years with her own dad. When I saw Lamar comforting Rayna about the restraining order, my heart turned warm and cozy. Love the way this show portraits family values as a big part.
2. Juliette, Jolene, and Dante
Jolene, oh Jolene. If it wasn’t the middle of the day, I would have cried at the scene when Juliette found Dante’s body and Jolene overdosed. Jolene wasn’t a great mother figure. She was on drugs for several years, did not do her job taking care of her only daughter, which turned Juliette into insecure, major bitch. However her love toward Juliette was greater than ever. When she took out gun toward Dante, I felt that love stronger than ever.
Dante was son of B… Although I wouldn’t say he deserved to die. If I was Juliette, I would have turned him in (stubborn girl Juliette…). Anyways, Juliette will be coping with her mother’s death - the only one who truly loved her - next week. Just watching next week’s promo broke my heart. Not sure if I can take it on the actual episode.
3. Scarlette, Avery, Gunner, and Will
Scarlette finally made her debut at Opry! She had worked so hard on her musical career once she discovered it, and I’m so happy for her. Plus I think Avery made a cute move when he delievered whisk to Scarlette’s green room. I think inside my heart a little corner wants them to reconcile.
Gunner can never be free from Jason’s death? Especially when he blew off his chance to be under Rayna’s label because of dealing with his death, and used the song from Jason’s diary to get a record deal? Plus bunch of lies added up. I am disappointed with Gunner this episode that I’m glad that Scarlette broke up with him. Get yourself together, Gunnie!
Poor Will…Although he was manning himself up this episode. He tried his best to support Gunner even after he got cold shoulders back from him several times. Will would be another interesting character to explore on season 2.
P.S. : His solo on secret audition was awesome. Any plan to release the song as single, Big Machine?
4. Side: Juliette and Avery
They just started getting to know each other. Two of them had encountered before, but that was when Avery was aspiring musician/jerk who ditched everything for his selfishness, and Juliette was simply bitch on top. Now they’re in middle of crisis in their own lives, there are a lot to share. Juliette and Avery would be good writing partners/collaborators, and I’m looking forward to see it in season 2. Just hoping their relationship doesn’t turn sexually. I think that kind of cheap storyline is enough for poor Juliette.
P.S.2: My score toward Avery went up when he backed out of Juliette’s offer last week. What a move there, man!
