Brief Musings on Nashville: Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad
Oh, Lucky Spencer, you silly boy.
Look at the present your girlfriend got you!
As gifts go, I would think that's a good one?
He doesn't think so.
Second straight man on the planet who ever got bored by a half-naked multimillionaire hot blonde writhing on top of him.
She doesn't take it too well.
As well she shouldn't. And I might add that she was right to be pissed at him for telling her she should have given Scarlett the "night off" on tour. Not how it works. Sorry.
And I mean the whole reason he's just not that into Juliette anymore is this particular character from a Tennessee Williams play:
There is no accounting for taste.
But as he explained to her in the episode, Scarlett does have a permanent place in his heart. They were each other's first loves! But tell me. That permanent place? IS IT A PERMANENT LOCK, LUCKY SPENCER? IS IT?
Scarlett done got herself admitted to the nervous hospital, y'all! And is finally going to quit being a country star or something. Not that I'm interested in watching her do something else, but of course this was the episode where we were supposed to applaud even Gunnar for "defending" Scarlett to Jeff Fordham because Jeff called Scarlett a "loony," which, you know, how dare he say that about someone who just had a massive public mental breakdown!! She's just a wisp of a broken thing and we must all fan her and protect her honor and virtue and give her mint juleps, she's just a fragile naif!
Anyway, I can't muster up much more to say about an All About Scarlett episode, except I should mention that the second Jeff Fordham and Juliette were standing next to each other with drinks in hand I knew they'd get to bumping uglies sooner or later, but how awkward was the narrative that it was LITERALLY IN THE NEXT FRAME?! Hello? Please tell me I wasn't the only one who found that editing to be truly bizarre. I felt like they really missed a major beat.
And lastly (because what is there really to say about Will's new storyline-of-every-other-week being a reality show?), I would not deign to criticize Connie Britton but... well, maybe I would. She is an amazing actress and, you know, Mrs. Coach so DUH, but when Rayna was performing that song, did anyone at all believe that we were watching a wildly successful and famous country music star? She seemed so bored and stiff. Am I crazy? Do I need to go check into Scarlett's nervous hospital?
