Nashville recap: Arm Sex with Deacon and Rayna

Rayna and Deacon collaborate; Juliette finds a personal Jesus in Avery; Zac Brown and Jay DeMarcus guest star as themselves
Ep. 12 | Aired Jan 22, 2014

ARMED AND READY They're writing sex songs right now.


Exhausted at the Gunnar Party, Scarlett takes her angst out on the woman who gave her a chance in the first place: Rayna. After soaking her head in the bathroom sink (yes! tame that mane!), Scarlett exploded: "I've lost control over my life! You might have weird, codependent relationships with your ex-boyfriends, but I do not!" She clarified: "Deacon! If you say jump, he will always ask 'How high?'" Well, that was rude. And this is not about Rayna, honey.

Meanwhile, Luke took a similarly themed jab at Deacon during the party: "It's nice to see you putting yourself back out there after so many years of being someone else's support system," he told Deacon. "You deserve to be out there on your own."

But Deacon and Rayna obviously still work so well together! Why should they stop collaborating? Do you really think this is the breaking point for them and they have to quit collaborating because otherwise they'll just have sex? Does sex not fuel amazing country tracks? Y'all better saddle up, is my professional opinion.

And if you don't believe me -- take a cue from this visual. Stick with Luke Wheeler, Rayna, and your post-its that could be full of sexy, collaborative Deaconideas... will be forever blank.

The one furthest to the left seems to be frizzled with red-hot tension and crying out Deaconnnn! as the love of Rayna's life walks away.

Oh. And Teddy figures out via Megan (Deacon's girlfriend), who just so happens to be defending Peggy's killer's family, that Donald Stoffel had been terminated from an off-the-books subsidiary of Wyatt Industries -- which therefore connects the murder attempt to Rayna's father, Lamar. "Rayna's accident…Lamar's arrest…Peggy's death… you seem to attract all sorts of bad luck," Lamar's lackey with the chiseled face summed it all up for Teddy and any on-again-off-again viewers just tuning in.

Is anyone interested in this story line?

Even though it involves murder?
