Nashville recap: Family Feud

It's Juliette vs. Layla, Deacon vs. Teddy, and Will vs. his demons in "I'm Tired of Pretending"
Ep. 09 | Aired Dec 4, 2013

BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOU Juliette gently reminds Will to step up his hat game, especially in her presence.

Anyway, obviously Scarlett discovers Zoey and Gunnar making out. She's upset. Zoey's turned on. Gunnar looks relatively indifferent, and like an innocent, adorable puppy. What else is new?

Lamar and Rayna's sister Tandy are in this episode, too. Uh, would you mind not falling asleep like that in front of your screen? Stay with me here. Lamar needs both of his daughters as character witnesses as he begs a jury for house arrest, but Tandy obviously can't do it since she's the one who threw Lamar in jail in the first place, STOP NODDING OFF, that is seriously so rude of you. Stay awake: Rayna's own semi-impassioned testimony isn't convincing enough and Lamar has to go back to jail. You are now free to snooze. Lamar threatens to wreak havoc against his wrongdoer. Well, goodnight, then. You look so beautiful while you snore.

I start to warm up to Tandy when I think she's drinking red wine from a stemless glass (great for klutzes!), but then I see the stem. Same old boring Tandy. Doin' Tandy things.

Mostly because of its contrast to Tandy's lesser hair doing its Tandy thing.

Plus the hat.

Bonus amazingness: Juliette's incredulous finger-points, served two ways

"Seriously? This looks good enough for you?" re: her hair

"Get out. [pause] Y'all. Not him."

Both lines were right up there with Juliette's diss on Layla: "All y'all? She's from Connecticut!"

Next week: Someone DIES. Is that a Tandy thing, too? Who else, if not?

Oh, God, is it going to be Glenn? Noooooo!

What did y'all (I'm from Illinois) think of "I'm Tired of Pretending"?
