What I’m Watching: Nashville

Nashville: Season 1, Episode 8 “Where He Leads Me” (B+)

Against all odds, it’s looking like a joint tour with Rayna and Juliette may actually be the best thing for both of them giving their rollercoaster family lives. It didn’t take long for Coleman to leak the photos of Teddy and Peggy, even after Rayna paid him a visit to ream him out for stooping to such a level. Peggy’s overdose doesn’t make things look good at all, but, though she disapproves of what Teddy did and will likely never forgive him, Rayna did help him out considerably by standing by him and defending his character to the public. Juliette got a taste of familial bliss by spending what seemed like a lovely Christian weekend with Sean, and it was brutal to hear his mother express her extreme disapproval for Juliette and her assurance that Juliette would never have an easy time being accepted into the family. Proposing to Sean was a shocking and bold move, and something tells me that this rather new romance isn’t going to last quite as superbly as Juliette might think. Deacon didn’t deserve Juliette’s harsh rebuke for trying to get her a message from her mother, and it seems that, in her time of need, Rayna has come to depend on Deacon again. Gunnar’s breakup with Haley was inevitable, and it looks like winning Scarlett’s heart may be more difficult than he thought. It’s hard to feel bad for Avery because of how he treated Scarlett, but at least he’s trying to stick by his friend.
