A shadow has been cast over country music’s biggest night: Juliette discovers a letter from Jolene revealing her mother’s true feelings; Rayna and Deacon’s fairytale evening at the CMA Awards, even performing with Brad Paisley – who guest stars as himself — may not end in a happily-ever-after; and Gunnar will do whatever it takes to win Scarlett’s heart back — but is it too late? Meanwhile the U.S. Attorney’s office is closing in on Teddy, and Peggy returns with a secret of her own.
I am glad that THE BIG SECRET is finally out but do I wish it happened before Rayna/Deacon got back together? HELL YES. I mean it would have been awful either way but seeing them so happy together in the last few hours whilst knowing that this was hanging over their heads? Really painful. Pretty much the only time I have liked Teddy was in that fight scene with Deacon when he said that Maddy and Rayna deserved better than Deacon thirteen years ago. Oh and he also gets points for when he was with Rayna trying to calm Maddy down and told Rayna to trust him that she won’t lose her.
Rayna/Juliette moment <3.
Poor Tandie, I hope she doesn’t do something stupid. I hated Lemar at the start of the season but he has weirdly grown on me a tiny bit.
PEGGY, WHY DO YOU STILL EXIST?! Why are you pregnant?!?! I would almost prefer her rolling over on Teddy and Teddy going to prison than this scenario? I kinda guessed it was coming when I read the synopsis for the episode.
Probably my favourite Juliette episode. The song at the end was beautiful but then it got a bit melodramatic with the violins that sprung out of nowhere.
Gunnar/Scarlett – what is it with proposing for the wrong reasons in season finales?!?! I hope they never revisit Scarlett/Avery as being more than friends and whilst I love Gunnar/Scarlett, I kind of wish they showed Gunnar making it up to her by doing something other than proposing.
I am weirdly invested in Will. He is going to be a main character next season, yes? When he first appeared, I thought he was going to break Gunner/Scarlett up and I am so glad they didn’t go down that route. This route is way more interesting. Oh Deacon. Poor guy, can’t blame him though. BUT BIG FAT NO TO THE CAR CRASH.
