Nashville is most definitely getting more and more interesting every week, as long it continues to stay more focused. Letting the drama build through the characters is way better then throwing some outrageous twist on us to make us feel something.
The Lamar court room drama was pushed back into the spotlight. I like that they haven’t focused too much on it because if they spent too much time on it in previous episodes, it may have felt too redundant.
The Deacon/Teddy/Maddie issues are heating up and that is what draws my attention the most. I understand that Teddy is hurt and scared, but these men need to, well, man up and deal with this like adults. As Rayna can see, this is hurting Maddie more than anybody else.
The younglings love stories headed into a more interesting direction. If they are framed by the tour plot, the making out and love fits into an effective dramatic story. This week, while predictable, was still bearable.
On the other hand, I am so sick of Juilette’s ridiculous love affairs that I need something new in her corner. The Avery/friendship characterization was working so well, so I hope that it continues. It’s nicer to see Juliette on a more human level. Her jealously and bitch mode with the tour’s “little miss newbie” is more engaging than anything else, so at least she got that going for her.
And, as I’ve said… bring back the good music…
Keep on Watchin’!
