Nashville recap: Don't Put Dirt On My Grave Just Yet

Juliette considers a tween-friendly L.A. makeover; Rayna pretends she feels nothing after Lamar's death

Oh, about Scarlett. Nooooooooooo, Scarlett! After wisely backing away from Liam's advances earlier in the evening, our ethereal doily leaned in to a surely sticky situation back in his recording studio, where she'd gone to nap. Even Liam knew by that point it was a bad idea -- plus, he'd probably just been screwing someone else out in the real world, right? He was probably thinking, Ew, gross... Just let me shower.

Did anyone else prefer the stripped-down "live" version of Scarlett recording "Black Roses" to the over-produced final product of Liam's? That high note she hit was so beautifully haunting at the time; I liked it slowed-down like that.

Oh, God. Teddy… oh, well, first, get this: Teddy is the mayor of Nashville. I CONSTANTLY forget this because ugh, Teddy, what are you even doing here. But nope! Mayor! Mayor of Nashville. Anyway, Teddy confesses to Deacon's girlfriend Megan that he just watched Lamar die.

Um......

Great idea, political figure. Tell a District Attorney that. You dummy.

By episode's end, Rayna finally breaks down in a desperate rage after insisting she didn't feel anything about her father's death. (She comes from a family of liars, that's why.) As she violently trashes Lamar's office, my laughing turns to crying; Rayna collapses into a heap of tears and anger. "It's gotta stop. All the lying," she insists to a stoic-faced Tandy and Teddy (still the mayor of Nashville).

Heart-clutching moment of the night: Juliette wordlessly sidling up to Rayna's side during the funeral. Bold move!
