We begin the show with both Sadie and Luke giving statements to a detective at the police station about Sadie accidentally shooting her ex-husband with an illegally purchased firearm. Wow. There is still a gun law on the books in Tennessee. Who knew!?! As they both give their sides of the story, it seems like things can’t get worse for Sadie (ya know, who just hung out with Puke) who might be under arrest.
At Rayna’s place, she and Deacon are having an emotional hangover after their day of fighting and revelations and telling the kids and drama drama drama. To make matter worse, Rayna has to host Juliette’s baby shower in just a few short hours. I am not sure what is worse- finding out the love of your life has cancer or hosting ANYTHING for Juliette.
Using her one phone call, Sadie immediately calls Rayna and tells her about shooting psycho Pete. Rayna lawyers up and heads on over to the police station. As the detective walks Puke out of the police station, Rayna and her attorney run into them. When Rayna’s asks Puke what he was doing with Sadie when she shot Pete, Luke turns back into an ass hat, sasses her and walks off.
Still on tour, Avery is dealing with an imbalanced and hormonal Juliette. Wait, when is that woman NOT imbalanced? Anywho, they have yet to find a name for their baby and she is being irrational about him not wanting to decide on a name and during a phone conversation about it, she hangs up on him. She next takes her psychosis out on Emily, who is watching her come unraveled.
Gunnar is still whining about Scarlett spending the night with Dr. Hottiepants (Caleb) and when she shows up late to pile on the bus to get back out on road, Gun Gun dickishly lectures her on keeping a tighter skedge. Also, her walk of shame gear is spot on.
Freaking out about the mess he’s gotten himself into, Teddy gets a call from the prostitute asking if he’s gotten her the money she needs to flee the country. He tells her to slow her roll. He is working on it. Teddy’s Creepy friend guy (AKA Creepy #2), who seems to do a lot of underhanded dirty work for him, has dug up some dirt on the mayoral office’s finance director. As Teddy thumbs through the incriminating documents, Creepy #2 tells him he reminds him of his former father in law. Low blow, Creepy #2.
Deacon takes Maddie and Daphne to breakfast at Noshville and Maddie isn’t eating that delicious French toast on her plate. Eat, Maddie! I’ll be damned if you turn into Scarlett. Out of the blue, Daphne asks what cancer feels like. Maddie doesn’t want to talk about it, but Deacon has done a complete one eighty and won’t shut up about it. Maddie isn’t thrilled with any of this and jumps up and hauls it on out of there. Can we have just one scene in a restaurant in this show where someone doesn’t jump up and storm out? And for the record, I eat at restaurants regularly in Nashville and have never witnessed a dramatic walk out. Maybe I should try it just to say I did it.
Back at Deacon’s house, Maddie has locked herself in the bedroom and she calls Teddy in tears, asking him to pick her up. When Teddy shows up, Deacon is having no luck at getting Maddie to come out. Deacon isn’t thrilled to see Teddy and Teddy isn’t thrilled that Daphne is also hanging out at Deacon’s place. This is one effed up Brady Bunch, ya’ll. Anyway, Deacon and Teddy argue about what Maddie wants and that’s when Deacon tells him about his cancer. Teddy doles out some advice, explaining the harder you push, the bigger the brat Maddie is going to be. Like that’s possible.
Back on the tour bus, Gunnar is keeping up his pissy act towards Scarlett when a TV news report from Nashville’s WKRN news anchor Anne Holt pops up talking about Sadie shooting her ex-husband. The report also indicates that psycho Pete is dead. Avery takes off for the back of the bus to call Sadie and when Scarlett tries to console Gunnar because he and Sadie are friends, Gun man jumps up and walks away.
Juliette is freaking out because none of her famous “friends” can attend her baby shower and not even all of her backup singers can make it. Glenn shows up to give her a gift and to let her know that Rayna will also not be making the baby shower. That’s when Glenn drops the Sadie shooting her ex hubs info on her. Juliette’s response is classic Juliette. “I cannot believe she would choose to shoot someone on the day of my shower!” That look on all of your faces right now? Yeah, that’s the same look Glenn just gave her.
At the police station, Sadie is an emotional wreck when she notices the blood on her hands and clothing. Her attorney tells her she is free to go for now. As she, Rayna and the lawyer leave, the awful detective reminds them that charges are still pending against Sadie and she probably shouldn’t leave town – even though Rayna points out Sadie shot him in self defense. In order to avoid that crazy fictional Nashville press corps outside the station and camped outside Sadie’s house, Rayna takes her home with her.
Back on the tour bus where the storyline can’t get more tedious, Scarlett asks Avery what sort of bug is up Gunnar’s butt. Avery recommends she just ask him. He then recommends the same to Gunnar, who goes to skeletal Scar and apologizes. He then starts going off on her being with Dr. Hottiepants and how she sleeps with him on their second date. Okay, to be honest, Jason and Zoey and the crap that kept them apart in the past all came up… but they were arguing and I couldn’t understand her with that accent.
Juliette has hit complete meltdown mode at this point and is tearing the party decorations apart. This includes chucking a beautiful multi-layer cake into a door. What is it with the show and the destruction of cakes? No wonder Scarlett is so thin. At the end of her tantrum, she orders Glenn and Emily to cancel the party altogether.
At the recording studio, Puke texts Sadie asking if she’s okay. (Got any more dumb questions, genius?) He runs into Bucky who is there to check out a new internet artist. Puke is having trouble focusing and tags along. Though they both love his sound, Bucky doesn’t think he is Highway 65 material. However, he is perfect for Puke’s record label. So, Puke signs him on the spot.
Hiding out Chateau de Rayna, Sadie is having nightmares about the shooting. She’s ignoring her phone going off and is glued to news reports about the incident. When she finally does answer her cell, it’s that jerk of a detective.
Deacon invites Teddy in who heads down the hall to talk to Maddie. He is the voice of reason for Maddie who tells him to promise her he won’t get sick until he’s an old coot. Then, Teddy swears he isn’t going anywhere. Foreshadowing anyone? Anyone?
Rayna decides to pop by the baby shower for a moment and when she arrives, she finds Juliette is still fit to be tied. She immediately starts in with Rayna on one of her typical selfish rants and Rayna finally gets the upper hand, telling her to knock it off. But before Rayna can give her what for, Juliette’s water breaks.
Before Scarlett and Gunnar can smooth over their argument, the tour bus quickly stops. Avery’s baby is on the way and he is grabbing a cab back to Nashville. The rest of Chex Mix (AKA The Triple Exes) will have to finish the tour without him.
As Teddy is leaving Deacon’s house, the hoochie mama is waiting for him and they jump in his car to chat. She is completely freaking out (not a Juliette freak out, but close) and she begs him to get her the money so she can leave Nashville.
At the hospital, Rayna is trying to calm Juliette, who doesn’t want to have the baby without Avery. Rayna does her best to help with the delivery, but Avery arrives in the nick of time. As Rayna is leaving the hospital, Sadie calls to tell her the District Attorney isn’t filing charges against her and bumped the illegal firearms charge to a misdemeanor. However, Sadie has been through hell and back and wants to go home to Virginia indefinitely to get her head straight.
Maddie finally comes out of pouty town and talks with Deacon about how angry she is about the whole liver cancer situation. Slap some teen angst on top of that and Maddie has the potential to be another Juliette. Regardless, Deacon simply asks her not to shut him out.
Still pissed at one another, Gunnar and Scar Scar are about to take the stage for their show and even though Gunnar is pleading with her to talk, she ignores him and steps on stage pinning on that goofy, fake smile of hers. So, Gunnar explains to the crowd that before they were a trio, he performed with Scarlett as a duo and she always inspired him and still does. They perform one of their old duets. They still have the hots for each other – and Gunnar confronts her about it. He said he felt something with her on the stage, but Scarlett lies and claims she was just sangin’. Her lying is about as believable as that accent.
Ticked off that Teddy called him in the middle of night once again for a meeting, the finance director (Harris) tells him that he is not approving funds for Teddy’s so-called redevelopment project. But Mayor Teddy has the dirt on him. Not only does the good finance director have a girlfriend on the side, but he has a child with said girlfriend. (Teddy is playing down and dirty ya’ll! That is so HOT!) And Harris is now going to find a way to get half a million bucks.
At the recording studio, Sadie stops in to chat with Luke. She thanks him for lying to the police and telling them the shooting wasn’t her fault. Okay. I just had to rewind that. Did Puke do the right thing for once? Immediately shutting down any relationship forming between them, Sadie heads for the hills of Virginia.
Avery and Juliette’s spawn is here and FOR THE LOVE OF MOON UNIT ZAPPA, DO NOT NAME THAT CHILD SOMETHING STUPID! But, considering the Nashville writers’ track record, my hopes aren’t exactly soaring. And of course, as Juliette is suggesting a name… we cut to black.
But guess what, bitches? Xtina is on next week’s episode and she is gunning for Puke.
Someone please let her know there are better people at the Davidson County lockup for her to date.

This boutique fitness brand offers serious benefits like increased stamina and strength, with cardio that’s actually fun. The seasoned trainers at the new studio are thrilled to serve their local community while offering this fun, new modern approach to boxing and welcome members of all fitness levels to the Rumble family.
The new Rumble Boxing studio is owned and operated by Blake Baskin and Antonio Compton. With their background in the fitness industry, this dynamic duo is excited to bring their passion for boxing and group fitness to Nashville. As business and life partners, Blake and Antonio aim to create a strong community within their new Rumble Boxing studio and share their message of non-apologetic inclusivity.

“We own who we are, and this brand aligns with that perfectly,” said Antonio. “This is what we want to create and bring to this community: a fitness class that is designed for anyone and a place for people to be who they are. As a Black and gay-owned business, we want to help lower the division we see in the world right now. Our goal is to bring people together through Rumble, set everything aside, and have fun.”
To echo their message of acceptance and inclusion, Blake and Antonio commissioned a local Nashville artist to paint an 11 X 6-ft. mural of Nashville icon and philanthropist, Dolly Parton. The massive portrait features the country star in Rumble Boxing gear in the lobby of the studio.
The excitement and buzz around Rumble allowed Blake and Antonio to recruit top-tier trainers to head up the new studio, including Head Trainer Oronde Jones, a well-known celebrity trainer in the Nashville market.

“Compared to other fitness classes, Rumble is a class you can truly get lost in for 45 minutes. With the dark room, you don’t have to worry if anyone is paying attention to you. The music is awesome and inspiring, and the beat drops right when you need it the most. Also, with boxing being a sport you can never truly master, you’re always improving and crafting your skill. On the floor, you’re consistently doing something new, which prevents you from ever hitting a plateau.” Said Oronde Jones about his favorite part of Rumble.
Rumble has massive brand loyalty and widespread appeal, partly thanks to attracting top names like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Jason Derulo, David Beckham, and Kevin Hart to its studios.

Who would have thought that we would have to get through a pandemic in order to appreciate the small things we have, such as the ability to simply pack our bags and hit the road?
For two years, there’s been nothing left for us travel junkies to do but sit at home and try to find new destinations that we will conquer once we defeat what appears to be the biggest villain of the 21st century. But once that happens, hold your bags tight because we will be up for some of the most interesting travel experiences. Take a look at some ideas for your post-COVID traveling plans:
A Gay Cruise
One of the best options to have in mind when all of this passes is a good, nice and long (pun intended) gay cruise. Or cruise in general, for that matter. Bear in mind, social distancing will still be a thing in the post-COVID world. But COVID-19 likely doesn’t mean that cruises will cease to exist. On the contrary, though cruise ships will probably keep the number of passengers smaller than before, it is believed that they will become an even bigger hit in the following period, especially because they are all going to go a lot more environmentally-friendly. On the bright side, is there any better way of celebrating the end of the pandemic than by cruising around some magnificent seas, stopping by at great cities and having romantic dinner nights at nice restaurants?
A getaway in nature
On the other hand, there is always the option of stepping away from the hustle and bustle of large cities, and spending some time in a place that’s not only healthy, but also beautiful. Some of the destinations that plenty of people will look for are the ones that can cater for both peace of mind and amazing things to see or do. One such destination is New Zealand, one of the greenest countries on Earth right now. Not only will you be visiting the magnificent country that gave us the beautiful Shire from Lord of the Rings; this is also a destination that’s excellent for everyone who prefers relaxing to partying. If you’re up for some partying, you will be able to hit Auckland, while if you’re for something calmer, there’s plenty of amazing places that you can see and visit.
Dancing Around at Pride
Pride parades are also events that you want to have in mind for the post-COVID world. Such events have always been quite important, but it seems that they are now more important than ever. The virus has canceled more than 75 Pride parades all around the world, which is one of the reasons why we must support the ones that will see the light of day once the pandemic stops. Truth be told, the upcoming Prides will perhaps be the best Prides ever organized. Give the gays a couple of weeks of quarantine, then let them outside and see what kind of party they are able to throw!
A road trip
If you’re, as well, waiting for the day to wake up and say “long gone are the days when we were not allowed to go wherever we wanted?”, and if staying at one place gave you a lot to think about, then your first post-COVID travel experience should definitely be a nice road trip. You can practically choose which country you want to tour, and you can either take your own car (you have probably missed it so much), or rent one at your destination. Australia is an amazing country for this, though, as it offers the possibility of seeing the Great Ocean Road, which is an amazing thing to see and experience. On the other hand, if you do not want or cannot leave your country, you can also choose to go on a domestic road trip – there are amazing things to see in your vicinity as well.
Holiday for a single guy
If you’re single, or you’re traveling someplace with another single friend, then you should definitely organize a nice vacation for yourself or for you and your single friend, and hit one of the best European cities. Europe has been greatly affected by the virus, which means that now it’s time to pay it back and get it back on its feet by traveling there and seeing all the amazing things it offers. Any city you choose in Europe – you will not make a mistake. Apart from being able to see great landmarks, you will also have the chance to have a drink at great gay clubs and pubs, and join unforgettable gay parties. And if the gay scenery is not your forte, worry not, as Europe indeed has to offer so many different and magnificent things.
