Nashville Follows Its Arrow

It’s just like the Kacey Musgraves song says: “Kiss lots of girls, if that’s what you’re into.” That was how Wednesday night’s (Nov. 13) episode of Nashville ended — with a big ol’ make-out session between Juliette and her lover’s wife.

“I know you’re sleeping with my husband, but what I don’t understand is why you’re not sleeping with me,” Olivia said before she went in for the kiss.

And all along, I’d been thinking that Olivia’s husband Charlie was the one to sleep with. Because one minute, Juliette was giving Charlie an X-rated meet-and-greet at her show, and then the next minute, the radio executive she hated was fired.

Some background on that: Juliette had told Charlie — who owns pretty much all the radio stations everywhere — that at this one Houston station, you have to sit on the programmer’s lap to get airplay.

“You have no idea what it’s like being a girl in this business,” she rants. “Everybody else holds the cards. And you just have to play nice. And beg. And if you’re pretty, sometimes you’re asked to do more. So you just smile and pretend that you don’t hate everybody who’s using you. That is how it works, Charlie. That is my life.”

But because she’s one sassy little independent pistol, after the programmer is fired, she screams at Charlie, “I do not need you to fight my battles for me.” Juliette ultimately gets that radio guy his job back, then tells him things are now going to go her way for a change.

“I guess nice just ain’t my color,” Juliette decided by the end of the episode.

Meanwhile, Teddy married Peggy who’s (not) having his baby, and his girls Maddie and Daphne sang him their half-hearted well-wishes with “I’d Rather Share With You.” Gunnar gave Edgehill Records his song — finally. Will beat the crap out of some homophobes and then made fake love to Layla, the opening act on his tour. Deacon tried his hand at singing (“You’re the Kind of Trouble”), much to the shock and awe of his daughter Maddie. And Rayna found a couple of new coping mechanisms to get her these stressful times — guns and sex.
