In light of the fact that my schedule has dramatically changed recently, quick disclaimer: I will cover shows as often as possible but it's unlikely that I'll be able to do every episode of anything, hence the recent scarcity of Nashville and The Fosters posts. That said, I just had to check in about last night's Nashville because how could I resist publicly celebrating Scarlett getting crushed? I couldn't, that's how!
You see, Liam and Scarlett got busted sucking face at the recording studio, like you do. Rayna was none too happy about this since Liam is hers. Or because it's bad for her young artist? Or because Rayna is an adult and Scarlett is a child? I'm not sure which version we were supposed to buy, but no matter. I really liked Liam and was starting to feel awfully sad about him getting involved with my least favorite character on the show, but at least I got swiftly rewarded when he didn't even bother trying to be nice about dumping her (he didn't even explain he'd been fired and ordered away from her).
I mean I can see why he didn't sugarcoat things when she showed up in that hat. Ugh, her face. For a minute I thought the schadenfreude maybe made me a bad person but then I again remembered Scarlett's not a real person but a work of fiction. An annoying one.
Was it a little sketch-o-rama of Rayna to essentially lie about this whole thing to Scarlett? Well, sure, but welcome to business and adulthood, blondie.
Meanwhile, Deacon ran into an old flame at an AA meeting.
Ruth was played by none other than Charlotte Ross, formerly Eve Donovan on Days of our Lives. Yay! I was thrilled to see her (also note to self: don't forget to check out Kassie DePaiva in the role) and I hope this isn't the last of her on the show. If nothing else, she's already a hell of a lot more exciting than Deacon's current girlfriend.
