Finally, an episode with some spunk! Mystery, intrigue, backstabbing, weird dates, and a missing kid. Got to love it all.
Some other quick thoughts on this week’s Nashville:
- Connie Britton is an incredible actress. The last moments of the episode were heart warming.
- I forgot how much I enjoy her kids. Lennon and Maisy are outstanding and the final song was probably the best of the season.
- Rayna opening up with Maddie and the transition that is going to take place with Teddy and Deacon should be interesting.
- The “father killing the mother” story is insanely over the top standard soap drama, but it is working for me, so I can’t complain.
- Juliette, while still a pushy spoiled brat, is actually handling her situation with more poise. It’s nice to see a little bit of growth. Don’t worry, she’s still a bitch.
- Deacon on the date was a little odd. The lawyer opened up, REALLY quickly.
- I don’t know if Gunnar is doing the right thing, but at least he’s doing something.
- Scarlett and Zoey’s scenes were kinda lame, but they’re attempting to build the latter character’s Nashville cred.
- Peggy, you’re the worst.
As much as I enjoy watching this show for certain aspects, lots of these characters and plot lines are getting old. At least here they hit a better balance of family issues with music business issues. The moments that came from these problems were quite lovely, so bring on the moments!
Keep on Watchin’!
