….Luke Wheeler! Hey, Scarlett's on tour with Luke Wheeler right now. They put her at the back of the bus and everything, not up front in a bunk like some commoner. Just as our favorite ethereal doily finished explaining to Avery over the phone that she's so darn small she could fit into the glove compartment, her former knight in pining plaid (nope, that doesn't really work) slithers on board, a mirage of dark denim and chiseled jaw lines. Drama! Quick, Scarlett, trade lives with me. That bus bed looked super cozy. I just want to… sit. I swear.

Will Lexington -- now a dark and twisted country antihero who could star in his own comic books with that signature black cowboy hat -- welled up with rage after  seeing his former flame Brent with his new boyfriend, Craig Hale. (Thanks for the full name…not.) He opted out of a double date with Layla and the happy couple and instead pouted at the hotel bar and refused to intervene when two homophobic sports fans came in and called Brent and Craig "pervs."

But Gay Batman just needed ample space, and dimmer lighting, to facilitate his dark deeds. He later caught up with the homophobes in the parking garage and kicked both of their asses with seemingly very little effort. Whoa! Okay, Will! Now what? Who would be treated to his adrenaline-fueled hardbody next?

Ewww. It's Santa Claus lap-lover Layla Grant. Will popped in on his fake love interest (remember, they're in an Edge Hill-orchestrated showmance to keep up appearances and boost sales) and made a move -- even though he knows she sabotaged his friend Scarlett a few weeks ago on the press line. And even though he's gay. "About time, cowboy," she marveled. This does not bode well.

Hmmm… should I go into more detail about how Peggy didn't want to postpone the wedding for the sake of "the constituents," who wouldn't want to see their political hero (in what universe?) have a child ("a child") out of wedlock?

Didn't think so.

Somewhat blurry, but chosen for the emotional punch this moment packed. Go back and watch how the waves on the left gently fluttered as Rayna basked in the warm yellow glow of Deacon and Maddie's getting-to-know-you giggles!

Your thoughts on "She's Got You"? Will Scarlett and Gunnar get back together? Will Layla try to steal Thong Dress? Did any of you predict the Olivia-Juliette lady-lover twist?
