Or why Deacon punched that guy? The guy I thought was sincerely trying to apologize. It is related to the song he sang about being Reyna's backup?
He was sincerely apologizing, but the timing was terrible. Between his confrontation with Rayna, MethMom, rehab, the pills, and the general suckiness of his life, Deacon wanted an outlet for his frustration and found one. He's his own worst enemy, but I still feel for him. No one in his life wants something from him, but they're all tied to Rayna; even his sponsor is her childhood friend. I like that element of his friendship with Juliette.
Juliette's pretty damn awesome, but Rayna is drowning in the Teddy nonsense. I'd be more sympathetic to her plight if he was remotely likable and their marriage weren't so terrible. They don't know each other at all their marriage is literally built on nothing. Two huge things happened in their lives, and both declined to discuss it with the other, and openly took the opportunity not to care. Rayna is writing on her own for the first time in twenty years and Teddy can't be bothered to ask about it? She can't show up fo his debate, or debrief it with him? UGH. I understand why they're together but I don't understand why
they're together. Sure, Deacon was in a bad place, but there had to be another eligible bachelor who could at least feign interest in Rayna's life, right? This marriage probably never got off the ground and it's making it increasingly difficult to care about Rayna's emotional struggles. If Teddy were a swell, supportive, available guy? I'd understand her dilemma a whole lot better.
Coleman is a GOD: "The only thing Teddy Conrad is good at is inheriting money and losing it." Ooooh, burn. I'd vote for him in a hot second.
I really love Rayna/Deacon's theme. It's a great sultry, twangy melody that fits them well.
Scarlett was only somewhat insufferable. Here's to progress.
If the record people really liked the song, wouldn't they just ask them to re-record it without all the fancy backup guitar?
A lack of professionalism? If they can't take their one big shot seriously, than they're not worth investing in?
