#Nashville starts with Gunnar and Scarlett at Autumn’s tour HQ and they’re meeting her. Scarlett is fangirling. Autumn greets them warmly and introduces them to her team. She hugs Scarlett who giggles like a maniac.

She asks them to sit and do her weekly tour meeting. Alicia says she wants to be on stage 15 minutes after the Exes bow. She then chews out a guy and fires him. She says sorry but she’ll get him a flight back to Nashville.

Juliette talks to her therapist about the studio suing her but says it doesn’t matter, she needs to be with Cadence. She says she and Avery talk about the baby only then says she wants to get back to work. Her therapist suggests she go see Glenn.

Deacon and Layla talk about at-risk kids and she’s working with them to try and find the missing Vita. She says she’s doing a fundraiser concert. Maddie comes in and they ask what she’s doing with her day off. She says working with Cash.

Rayna asks about the breakup and she says she wrote about it and it’s good. Rayna says she’s growing up. Will meets with Layal and shares his good news about the label. She says Avery has no time for her and her album is at a standstill.

She asks if he and Juliette are hanging out and he says Avery and Juliette barely talk. Then she says she feels like she got screwed out of opening with Autumn. She says Jeff got more stuff done for her and he says Jeff wasn’t ethical.

Cash shows up to Rayna’s and Deacon greets her at the door. Cash thanks him for helping with her dad and he says thanks for helping Maddie. Maddie paces in the home studio and tells Cash that Colt joined the Army. She says she’s jealous that he can make his own choices.

Cash says write it into a song. Maddie says no one will hear her songs. Cash says she used to sneak out and play cafes then says she wasn’t telling her to encourage her. Maddie says it’s killing her then begs for her help.

Bucky brings in some positive reports to Rayna and he shows her the Business Week cover touting her success. He says they’re going to see the Exes tonight but he can’t find a tour for Layla. Rayna thinks and says let’s go outside the box. Rayna says maybe it can be her.

Juliette shows up at Glenn’s and he says he has a meeting but she begs him to listen. He says they didn’t have a last great couple of years then says he’s not who she needs and closes the door on her. Rayna and Bucky talk about a short tour with her and Layla.

He says let’s push it six months but Rayna says no. He says he thought she wanted to be home but she says things at home are calm and they need to do this for Layla. He says he’ll make the calls. Luke gets an update about his tour with Riff.

His manager says you should bring along one of your baby artists. He says someone with an album. Luke says get on board since Will is in the family now. Kenneth says he’s clear as Will shows up but Kenneth gives him the cold shoulder.

Luke says he’s an amazing artist and his music is the selling point and says he has some tracks he wants to work with and asks if he can work with Kevin and Will says it’s fine. He says he even had breakfast with his ex-wife today.

Gunnar tells Scarlett that your idols aren’t what you want and their manager tells them that Autumn fired her last opening act and says don’t piss her off. Gunnar says when have I pissed anyone off. Scarlett glares and he adds “lately.” He tells them to do whatever she asks.

Cash finds an underground place for her to perform at and they don’t realize Daphne is in the room listening. Avery calls Layla about working together and she says she’ll call him later. Juliette is at his house and he’s surprised.

She says Cadence’s passy got left in her car. She asks if Glenn hates her and Avery asks why she asks. She says she went by to apologize to Glenn and he seems to hate her. Avery asks if she was honest about why she wants him back.

She says she was with him since she was 14 and doesn’t know how to do it without him. Avery says it’s so hard for her to admit she needs people. Avery says she hurt Glenn so he’s protecting himself. He says the Juliette he knew wouldn’t take no for an answer.

She says the Juliette he knew was hated by people and did bad things. He gives her some encouragement and says she should give Glenn the truth and not give up. She asks for his help. He considers this. Deacon finds Rayna with her guitar out and she says she’s working on a song.

She says she wants him to come with her when she goes on tour. Deacon is stunned she’s planning a tour. He says he has the girls and she says Tandy can watch them and he says he has the Beverly. He says it’s 10 dates and Frankie can watch it.

Deacon says he thinks of himself as a dad and a business owner. She says wouldn’t it be great to be on stage together and he agrees. Kevin shows up to work with Will and it’s awkward. He congratulates him on re-signing with Luke’s album.

Kevin takes a call and steps away and it’s obvious it’s someone he’s dating. He ends the call and Will asks if it’s a new BF. He says yeah and says he knows it seems fast. Will says he owes him no explanation since they’re there to work.

Juliette has Emily doing a bunch of work and snaps at her impatiently. Then she says sorry and please get on board. She suggests J call her shrink but she refuses. Maddie asks Deacon if she can go see Cash at a coffee house. He asks if it serves booze and she’ll be home by curfew.

Daphne forces her to bribe her to take her shopping and buy her something. Deacon agrees to let her go. Gunnar and Scarlett eat with Autumn who asks them questions. Scarlett says she wrote poetry and Gunnar was the singer.

She says Gunnar put one of her poems to music. Then she asks about their relationship. She asks if they lived together and who broke up with who. Autumn pries and then says dish to me – it’s just the three of them. She demands the story of their split.

Gunnar says he proposed and she turned him down but it was for the right reasons. Autumn makes them feel uber uncomfortable. Layla shows up to see Luke and talks to him about Jeff. She says Luke was good to her flying her home and everything.

Layla says she wants to be his opener for the tour. She says she needs to promote her album but there are no openings. He asks what Rayna thinks and she says she doesn’t know she’s there. He says his people want him to bring one of his artists.

Layla says he was there when Jeff died and knows what happened in a way no one else does. She says she has no one else to turn to and begs him to help her get her life back on track.

Scarlett rants to Gunnar about Autumn being crazy. He says focus on the opportunity and let it go. Rayna shows up and asks how it’s going with Autumn. Then Autumn shows up and greets them. Autumn says they have the most amazing history then says she loves their storytelling.

Rayna says she’s glad they found each other. At the Opry, Avery greets Glenn. He told him to come see a new act. Juliette takes the stage to a cheering crowd and Glenn asks if he tricked him. Avery begs him to stay and says you may kick yourself if you don’t hear her out.

Juliette tells them it’s been a rough year and she’s grateful they’re there for her. She then says she couldn’t have done this without a very important man and says she thinks of him as her father. She says every word of this is the truth.

Juliette sings and Glenn’s eyes feel with tears. The song is about how her life is not the same without him. She looks at him offstage and he nods. The crowd is crying and swaying. Avery pats him on the shoulder and takes off. The song is about her being the bad guy.

Bucky tells Rayna that he called Layla and she told him she booked herself on Luke’s tour. Bucky says it’s great news and Rayna doesn’t have to go out. Rayna says she feels gut punched and Bucky says she didn’t know they were trying to do this.

Rayna says she feels betrayed by Juliette and others that left her. Bucky reminds her of all the success. Kenneth complains to Luke about him taking Layla out on tour. Luke gets snippy with him and says there’s more to this job than the business.

Scarlett and Gunnar take the stage at the show. Rayna looks longingly at the screaming crowds. Deacon tells Daphne to clean up and she says it’s not fair she’s always in trouble when Maddie gets away with everything. Deacon asks what she means and she clams up.

Madide is with Cash and they meet Billy. She says she told them they were at a coffee house. Juliette finds Glenn in her dressing room and he says it was a great performance. She says it wasn’t an act and says she’s so sorry. She says she treated him terribly and let him down.

She cries and says it’s not okay. She says she misses him and needs him. He sighs and says his left kept going and can’t drop Layla. She says it’s not about that. She says her life is not the life she wants without him. She says if you can’t be my manager, just be in my life.

He says maybe he can do both and they hug each other and cry. Maddie checks out the bar and pulls off her jacket to show off her LBD. A guy comes to talk to her and says he hasn’t seen her there before. She says she’s a friend of Cash. He says Cash is cool.

He offers to buy her a drink but she says no thanks. Will and Kevin finish working and he says he thinks Luke will be happy with them. Kevin says he knows Will is upset and he says they just broke up and he moved on and Kevin asks if he should wait for him to stop hating and blaming him.

Will says he was wrong and it was all new and confusing. Will says he’s not proud of how he behaved and says he’s grown a lot. Kevin says he heard what happened at the bar and was impressed how he went back and stood up for himself.

Will says he learned a lot from Kevin. He tells Will the person you learn from isn’t always the person you end up with. He goes to leave and Will says he loved him and Kevin says the same then goes. Autumn takes the stage and Gunnar says sorry to Scarlett but she says it’s fine.

Rayna comes to talk to them and says they were awesome. Then Autumn introduces Rayna who takes the stage to cheers. Cash takes the stage and tells the bar a friend of hers is performing tonight. She takes the stage and thanks Cash for inviting her and Billy for letting her sing.

Cash videos her as she sings. The guy who flirted with her smiles as she sings. Deacon shows up as she sings. The crowd is really into it. Deacon does not like what he sees. There are catcalls galore and Deacon glares as a guy gets really close to the stage.

He knocks the guy out of the way and rants at Maddie. Cash is alarmed and he drags her out as she screams at him and tells him to get off her. Cash runs out and apologizes to Deacon. She says it’s a music venue not a strip club.

Deacon says she has no right to take her anyway. Cash says he doesn’t even know his daughter. Cash says Deacon stands in her way and tells Cash to back off. She says she won’t abandon Maddie. Deacon says stay the hell away from my daughter or you’ll regret it.

Maddie sits in the car crying. Rayna sings with Autumn and is thrilled to be on stage. Juliette shows up to thank Avery and hands him a six pack in thanks. He says she didn’t have to come there. Layla pulls up and sees them talking.

Juliette says good night and goes. Layla watches them and then considers. Autumn tells Scarlett and Gunnar’s personal details at the after party. Scarlett goes over to her and asks to speak to her privately. Scarlett says she would appreciate she wouldn’t talk about their history.

She says it took them a long time to find equilibrium and she doesn’t want anything to risk it. Autumn says sorry and says she’s just so open about her heartbreak. Autumn acts gracious then says good for you for speaking up and says she respects that.

Scarlett walks away and Autumn glares. Layla comes to Avery’s door and then tells him the news about her tour with Luke. She hugs him then asks if he wants to be her bandleader. She says she’d like to have him with her. Avery is intrigued.

Autumn approaches Gunnar who says Scarlett left early. Autumn drags her to her dressing room and says she lied earlier. She says her favorite song is the one he wrote and drags him off with her. Bucky brings Rayna a drink on the plane and says great show.

She says the Exes killed it and Bucky says it was great to see her on stage. She apologizes and says she thinks she lost sight of herself as an artist and touring would have been important for her. He tells her to do 10 days for the hell of it and she asks if they can.

Deacon calls and tells her the bad news. Luke is there when Heidi shows up crying. She says it’s Riff and says he’s been acting crazy. She says two days ago he packed a bag and left and says she doesn’t know where he is.



Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) still has a long way to go on “Nashville” Season 4. In the last episode, she decided to back out of a movie role to spend time with her daughter. However, she isn’t giving up on her career yet. The synopsis for episode 15 of the ABC drama reveals that she’ll want someone she burned bridges with to help her return to the spotlight.

“Juliette misses her manager, Glenn [Ed Amatrudo], and devises a plan to get him back,” the synopsis reveals. Juliette fired Glenn to work with Jeff (Oliver Hudson) when she was heading towards rock bottom. Glenn is a little busy with another starlet now, but Juliette is like his daughter. Will he be able to turn Juliette away?

Glenn will probably still be consoling Layla (Aubrey Peeples) about losing the opening slot on Autumn’s (Alicia Witt) tour. It seems that the gig is making Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) more successful than ever. “The Exes find navigating their newfound fame tricky business when they go out on the road with Autumn Chase,” the synopsis teases.

Elsewhere in episode 15, titled “When There’s a Fire in Your Heart,” Scarlett’s uncle, Deacon (Charles Esten), will be trying to figure out how to parent a teenage girl. Deacon isn’t going to be thrilled with Maddie’s (Lennon Stella) growing friendship with Cash (Jessy Schram). “Maddie continues to grow closer with Cash, causing tension with Deacon as he questions her motives and interest in his daughter,” the synopsis says.

It isn’t just friends Deacon is worried about. In the trailer, a guy touches Maddie’s leg while she is playing a set, and Deacon freaks out. Maddie doesn’t seem to understand why Deacon is being overprotective. Watch the promo video for “Nashville” Season 4, episode 15 below:

Also in the installment, Kevin (Kyle Dean Massey) will return. Luke (Will Chase) just brought Will (Chris Carmack) back to the label, and he’ll pair up the singer with his old writing partner. The two will have to put their romantic history aside if they want this professional relationship to work.

“Nashville” Season 4, episode 15 airs Wednesday, April 15, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.

Gunnar (Sam Palladio), Rayna (Connie Britton, center) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) will celebrate the success of The Exes in “Nashville” Season 4, episode 15.Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) will get a taste of fame in “Nashville” Season 4, episode 15.Rayna (Connie Britton, left) will jump on stage with Autumn (Alicia Witt) in “Nashville” Season 4, episode 15.Avery (Jonathan Jackson) will still be figuring out how to deal with his ex-wife's return in “Nashville” Season 4, episode 15.

Nashville Recap: Wild Child


When There’s a Fire in Your Heart

Season 4 Episode 15

Editor’s Rating 4 stars ****

Photo: Mark Levine/ABC

Just putting this out there: Is it possible that Deacon and Rayna are bad parents? I mean, are they even slightly perturbed by the fact that Maddie has broken up with Colt, is all but ignoring her clinically depressed kid sister, and is suddenly spending all of her free time with her new special adult lady friend? Au contraire.

“Thank you for everything you’re doing for Maddie,” Deacon says to Cash.

“I just want to make sure that she reaches her full potential,” Cash replies, creepily.

So, of course, this is the episode where it all hits the fan. Cash just happens to mention to Maddie that back when she was a super talented and rebellious 16-year-old whose parents just didn’t understand, she used to sneak out to cafés to perform — not that she would ever suggest Maddie do such a thing. The next thing you know, Maddie and Cash are devising a plan to get Maddie to play at a bar. And you know how all sad little tweens think they’re secretly invisible? Cash and Maddie add fuel to Daphne’s “It’s like I don’t even exist!” narrative by literally making a plan right in front of her, while Daphne sinks quietly into the couch.

Later, Deacon tells Daphne to get off the couch and clean up after herself, and Daphne blurts out, “I get in trouble for every little thing and Maddie gets away with everything!” (She’s not wrong.)

Deacon does a sort of double take. “What is Maddie getting away with?” he says. Nothing gets past this guy.

Okay, we’ll return to Adventures in Irresponsible Parenting in a bit. Now, let’s discuss the Greatest Dad in the World. I am referring, of course, to Glenn.

Ugh, all of the Glenn–Juliette stuff in this episode was beyond emotional. And it just kept coming at you — in waves.

First, Juliette goes to visit Glenn to ask him to be her manager again and he throws her out, quite rudely. No, Glenn, no!

Then Juliette turns to Avery for help (aww) and, better still, he actually gives it to her (double aww), inviting Glenn to listen to an exciting new artist at the Opry.

“What did you say her name was?” Glenn asks.

“I didn’t,” Avery replies.

Cut to Juliette, on stage. Glenn is disgusted that he’s been tricked and storms out. But then Juliette says, “I want to dedicate this song to the man I always thought of as my father” — and Glenn stops in his tracks. Juliette starts to sing and Glenn makes his way to the wings of the stage and they exchange a nod and meaningful eye contact and, at this point, Juliette is tearing up, and Glenn is tearing up, and I’m tearing up, and they cut to people in the audience who are openly weeping, and I think, “Get a grip, people, you don’t even know the whole back story here!” The power of music, I guess.

Despite this super-emo scene, Glenn still isn’t sure he wants to take Juliette back as a client.

“Maybe you can just be in my life?” Juliette offers, pathetically — and this is the thing that finally breaks him.

“Maybe I can do both,” Glenn says. “I’ve missed you.” And then, finally, they hug. Best. Dad. Ever.

Meanwhile, the Exes are starting their tour with Autumn Chase who — surprise — is not quite as nice as she pretends to be. She fires a roadie right in front of the whole crew, then tries to minimize Scarlett’s contributions to the Exes’ album, and then grills Gunnar and Scarlett about their relationship like it’s her freakin’ job. (In fairness, when you name your band the Exes, people are going to ask.) Gunnar and Scarlett kind of give her a rough sketch of their relationship, trying not to get super specific, but Autumn is relentless. “Tell me how you broke up!” she demands, leaning in, not giving them much choice. I have to say, I admire this woman’s commitment to gossip. Finally, they admit that Gunnar proposed to Scarlett and she dumped him, which is probably juicier than Autumn Chase could’ve possibly hoped for. Later, Scarlett musters up the nerve to tell Autumn to stay out of her personal life, and Autumn hugs her and apologizes, but then the show does that glorious soap-opera thing where they linger on Autumn’s face and it switches from compassionate to malevolent in a blink of an eye and it’s like, uh-oh, what is her damage? (The best, most realistic thing about Autumn is that she used to date John Mayer. The worst thing is that she seems to have her eye on Gunnar. You keep your clutches off of our darling Gunnar, Autumn Chase!)

Anyway, a little more housekeeping before we get back to Maddie and Cash.

• Am I the only one who thinks it’s sweet when Layla and Will hang out?

•Will is back writing songs with Kevin, but no sooner have they exchanged an adorably blushy, “You look good,” “You too,” than Kevin gets a phone call. “Do you want the same pinot from last night?” he says into the phone. Dammit, Kevin has a new pinot-drinking boyfriend.

•Rayna spends much of this episode trying set up an impromptu tour just so Layla can be her opening act. Meanwhile, resourceful as ever, Layla has already gone to Luke, to half-cry, half-blackmail her way onto his tour. Luke agrees, giving Rayna no excuse for her tour and forcing her to admit that she just really wants to get back onstage. (The siren song of the stage is, like, the theme of this episode.) Meanwhile, Layla invites Avery to be her band leader on her tour. Crafty little minx, isn’t she?

Okay, back to Maddie. She and Cash arrive at the bar. “She’s 21 tonight,” Cash tells the bouncer. (Does that work? If so, I wasted a lot of money on fake IDs back in the day.) Maddie goes to the bar and gets hit on by a guy who looks like every boy who was a finalist on American Idol ever. (Honestly, he was like some bizarro David Cook, David Archuleta, Kris Allen, Adam Lambert mashup — or maybe I just have Idol on the brain.) Anyway, I assume he’s going to factor into the plot at some point, but tonight he just kind of lurked.

Maddie gets onstage and Cash starts taking pictures, because when you sneak a 16-year-old into a bar for an illegal performance, it’s always good to document it.

Maddie is singing one of her “adult” songs again. And once again, it is both exceedingly catchy and wildly inappropriate. Sample lyrics: “I’m a bad girl … I’m a real bad girl. I’m a sick chick … I’m a wild card.” (Actually Maddie, you’re a spoiled rich girl from Nashville who has lived a sheltered life of unbelievable privilege, but you do you.) Right around now, Deacon storms into the bar and that’s when something truly bananas happens: As Maddie sings, this random guy (not David-Allen-Cook-Archuleta-Lambert) gets this kind of pervy, trancelike look on his face and makes his way to the stage and starts groping Maddie’s leg, like he’s been hypnotized by her sexy-lady vibes. I’m sorry. I’m literally laughing as I write this because that is not a thing that happens in real life. Needless to say, this is Deacon’s cue to storm the stage and act all He-Man-like and yank Maddie off. It’s a very intense scene, with lots of yelling and flying microphone stands and chaos. Then, Deacon confronts Cash outside the bar. It has finally occurred to him that she’s a bad influence.

Miraculously, Cash thinks she’s got the moral high ground here.

“You don’t even know [Maddie]!” she yells. “Do you even understand how talented she is?”

“You need to back off,” Deacon says.

“No, I am not going to abandon her. Not when she needs me. Not now, not ever!”

“You need to stay away from my daughter or you will regret it,” Deacon hisses.

(Am I losing my mind or is Cash completely and totally in the wrong here — and possibly insane, too? If you are Team Cash please state your defense clearly and concisely in the comments. Also, never have children.)

In the final scene, some woman whom I briefly think is Cash shows up in Luke’s office. Turns out, it’s Riff’s wife, beside herself because Riff has disappeared. Oh no, not Riff! Anyone but Riff! (Hey, I tried.) Not totally sure why this was the final scene, but it somehow means that Luke will need a new co-headliner, STAT. Juliette Barnes, maybe?

Nashville Recap: Wild Child Sours:
Nashville - Season 4 Finale

When There's a Fire in Your Heart is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of Nashville. It was written by Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ullin and directed by Michael Lohmann. It first aired on April 13, 2016.


As Scarlett and Gunnar arrive for a meeting with Autumn and her crew, Gunnar confesses his love for James Taylor. It's not long before things turn sour as she fires a guy who has been on her tour for six weeks in front of everybody. Scarlett is immediately worried and it turns out that Autumn also fired her previous opening act as well.

Meanwhile, Juliette is feeling good within herself and is eager to get back to work but doesn't know where to start. Rayna is busy planning a benefit concert for a charity for at-risk youth while Maddie is eager to get her songs out there. Elsewhere, Layla is stuck in a rut since Avery has no time to work on her album and Autumn dropped her as an opening act on her tour.

Rayna starts to put a new plan in motion and with Layla spot on Autumn's tour having fallen through, she has a new plan for her up-and-coming artist: she will bring her on a ten-date tour with her. She says that she's sick of being seen as just a businesswoman. Juliette is trying out the same thing and pays a visit to Glenn, only to have the door slammed in her face. Maddie is still going through her rebellious streak and Cash isn't helping the situation at all. She tells Maddie that she used to sneak out of her parents' house all the time to play shows when she was her age and Maddie convinces her to get her a spot at a local underground garage that she frequents, unaware that Daphne is listening in nearby.

Will is back talking to Luke about getting his album out there but not everyone feels the same way as him. Luke decides that he wants Kevin to work with Will on his album. Kevin and Will's writing session goes well and Will learns that Kevin has a new boyfriend and tells him that he loved him and Kevin felt the same way about him.

Back on Autumn's tour, things get a little tense since Autumn can't stop prying into Gunnar and Scarlett's private lives, telling everyone backstage about them. After their concert that includes Rayna duetting with Autumn, an annoyed Scarlett confronts the latter nicely and asks her to keep things private. Autumn says she admires Scarlett for speaking up but her evil glare and flirting with Gunnar say otherwise. Things are looking up for Juliette who uses Avery to lure Glenn to the Opry where she takes to the stage and dedicates her song to him. Afterwards, she gives him a tear-filled apology which he accepts.

Maddie asks Deacon if she can go to a coffee house for the evening but ends up going to the undergound garage with Cash. She chats to a guy but back at home Daphne ends up ratting out her sister to Deacon and he rushes to the venue as Maddie takes to the stage to perform. When a man approaches her and touches her leg, Deacon is livid and pushes the guy, before dragging Maddie out of the venue. As she cries in the car, Cash tries to say that she's helping Maddie reach her potential but Deacon is having none of it. He ends up phoning Rayna to tell her about Maddie.

As Juliette calls to see Avery in order to thank him for helping her, Layla is waiting in her car outside. When Juliette leaves, she visits Avery and tells him that she has secured the opening spot on Rayna's tour and wants him to go on the road with her. Meanwhile, Riff's wife shows up at Luke's office and tells him that she saw Riff packing a bag a few days ago but doesn't know where he is.

Juliette Wants to Be Glenn’s Client Sneak Peek - Nashville

Juliette Wants to Be Glenn’s Client Sneak Peek - Nashville


Season 4 episode 15 nashville

Anyone else longing for the open, honest, what-you-see-is-what-you-get-ness of one Miss Sadie Stone?

Though it seems like ages since the singer-songwriter graced our screens, it was barely a season ago she and Rayna were riding around Nashville, belting “Gasoline and Matches” and eluding the paparazzi like Bennifer —Lopez, not Garner — in their prime. Sure, Sadie had a teeny secret (with big, stupid fists) and wound up (accidentally!) killing that secret in a parking garage, but otherwise, she seemed like good people.

I bring her up in light of this week’s episode, which finds two relatively new Music City females going absolutely Chiquita-bananas loco. Add to that Layla’s prolonged, amorphous and rather wackadoodle revenge plan — best I can tell, her endgame involves mooning over Avery until he succumbs out of sheer boredom —  and can you blame me for reminiscing about Sadie’s sweet, simple sanity?

On the upside, Maddie gets yelled at during the hour, and that’s always a good time. And Kevin’s back! (For a hot minute.) Read on for the highlights of “When There’s Fire.”

RELATED Elton John to Appear on Nashville

GUNNAR GETS CHASED | Let’s start with The Exes, who arrive in Dallas all psyched about opening for Autumn Chase. That is, Scarlett and Gunnar are jazzed until they witness the country superstar hug them hello in one breath and then publicly shame one of her guitar techs by firing him in the next. Ah, I see: Autumn is terrible-crazy, not fun-crazy. Got it.

Working off their manager’s advice to just go along with whatever Autumn says, Gunny and Scarlett smile and nod through a dinner where she pries into their past, eventually getting Gunnar to admit that he proposed to Scarlett and she turned him down. It’s awkward, but Little Miss No Filter doesn’t seem to notice or care, and she goes on to spread the story among the crew after the Dallas show.

Finally, Scarlett’s had enough, and she gently yet firmly asks Autumn to quit it. The older woman flibbertigibbets all over herself apologizing, and then Scarlett starts apologizing in that way that most women (including myself) do which is SO INFURIATING. And even though Autumn acts like everything is totally cool — going as far as thanking Scarlett for speaking her mind — the way she flirts all up on Gunnar later is problematic, methinks.

FOR BETTER OR WORSE | Juliette is getting sued by the Stephen Spielberg movie that employed her for five minutes, but she doesn’t care, because she’s happy with where things stand with Cadence. However, she does miss performing and recording, but she needs a manager to help restart her get her music career. She gets all dressed up and visits Glenn, but he disregards all of the adult-ing she’s clearly doing — just look at that updo-turtleneck combination! — and kindly informs her that he can’t work for her anymore.

After lamenting her situation to Avery (who is in NO way talking about his own situation when he says that Glenn “doesn’t hate you, Juliette. I think you hurt him, and he’s protecting himself”), she enlists Mr. Barkley and the Grand Ole Opry in a ruse that involves her performing a song dedicated to Glenn on the Opry stage that evening.

The tune, “Hole in the World,” is a sad one that at first angers, then moves The Toupeed One to find space in his heart for one more try with his troubled surrogate daughter. “If you can’t be my manager, just please tell me that you’ll be in my life,” she says tearfully. “Maybe I’ll do both,” he replies, just as wetly. No, YOU’RE crying!

Nashville Recap Season 4 Episode 15RAY ON THE ROAD | When no touring act will add Layla as an opener, Rayna comes up with what she thinks is a great idea: She’ll do a 10-date tour, which will give the struggling Highway 65 artist a platform from which to promote her first album. And after doing a one-off duet with Autumn at the Dallas show, Rayna is literally ready to rock-n-roll and get back out on stage. She even gets Deacon to agree — rather, she informs him that he’s coming along on tour with her — but it appears that Layla has made other plans. (Don’t worry, Rayna still wants to hit the road.)

Back in Nashville, Layla combs her bangs and goes to Luke’s office, where she sobs/blackmails him into taking her on as his opening act. But what about Riff? Oh hey, don’t sweat it —he acted erractically, packed a bag and took off, and his panicked wife doesn’t know where he is.

CASHED OUT | Cash implies that Maddie should sneak out and play a gig to feel less “trapped,” then puts up only the smallest resistance when the teen (understandably) thinks that’s an awesome idea. So Mads lies to Deacon that she’s going to a “coffeehouse,” then puts on a little black dress and takes the stage at a bar Cash sneaks her into. The song she performs makes her sound like a little girl teetering around in her mother’s heels (sample lyrics: “I’m a bad girl, I’m a real bad girl”), and when Daphne narcs, Deacon shows up at the bar like DEKE SMASH!

Before you can say “grounded for life,” Deacon has his defiant daughter by the arm and is hustling her out to the car. Cash follows and screams at Deacon. “You don’t even know her!” the blonde shrieks, prompting Deke to warn her, “You need to stay the hell away from my daughter, or you will regret it.” The look that then passes over Cash’s face bodes something — I’m not sure what it is, but I’m sure it’s not good.

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY | Luke has Will spend a day writing with Kevin. Kevin has a boyfriend. Will is sad about it. They argue a little, then almost cry a little, then admit that they loved each other. Side note: I would’ve watched these two snipe at each other, field calls involving the word “pinot” and write on yellow legal pads for the entire 45 minutes of tonight’s show. THAT IS HOW MUCH I MISS KEVIN WITH WILL.

Nashville recap: When There's a Fire in Your Heart

Last week’s Nashville was surprisingly pleasant as the return of Juliette Barnes seemed to signal a shift in the show’s tone. This week, things aren’t quite as optimistic, but there’s still levity to ” When There’s a Fire in Your Heart,” which makes it one of the more enjoyable episodes of this season. A little heart goes a long way!

But seriously, any episode that starts off with Gunnar professing his love for James Taylor is fine by me. He and Scarlett have shown up for their first date as the opening act on Autumn’s tour. They sit in on her weekly tour meeting, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. It’s not long before things take a turn, though. Autumn straight-up fires a guy who’s been on her tour for six weeks right in front of everybody. That immediately worries Scarlett, and for good reason; it turns out she fired her last opening act, too.

Meanwhile, everyone else is trying to enact some changes in their life. Juliette is feeling good but is eager to get back to work; she just doesn’t know where to start. Then there’s Rayna, who’s planning a benefit concert for a charity for at-risk youth, and Maddie, who’s eager to get her songs out into the world. Things are changing for that whole crew, and by the end of the episode, things have really changed.

Then there’s Layla. She’s completely stuck in a rut, frustrated that Avery has no time to record her album and pissed off that the Exes got the tour slot with Autumn. She’s eager to figure out a plan quick, but just like Juliette, she’s not sure where to start.

Rayna, on the other hand, is starting to put all sorts of plans into motion. With Layla’s spot with Autumn falling through, she has a new plan for her up-and-coming artist: She’s going to bring her on a ten-date tour of her own. That’s right, Rayna James is eager to get back out on the road, partly because she’s sick of being seen as just a businesswoman these days. My question: What about the at-risk youth you were just so excited about?!?

Juliette is trying to do the same thing, essentially. She wants to get her life and work back in order, and that naturally leads her to Glenn. She approaches her old manager and friend with the hopes of rekindling some sort of business partnership. Unfortunately, Glenn has no interest in engaging in that volatile situation again, leaving Juliette to brainstorm other options.

Meanwhile, Maddie is getting a little rebellious, and Cash isn’t helping the situation. She tells Maddie about how she used to sneak out of her parents’ house to play shows when she was Maddie’s age, and SURPRISE, that gets some ideas in Maddie’s head. Who would have thought? She convinces Cash to get her a set at a local underground bar where she usually plays, and surely nothing could go wrong with that.

Then there’s Will. Poor, poor Will. He’s back talking to Luke and excited to work on the album, but not everyone at Wheelin’ Dealin’ Records is excited for him. Still, Will is doing what he can and trying to get along with everyone. That’s a good strategy to have considering Luke decides that he wants Kevin to work with Will on his album. No breaks for Will ever.

NEXT: I loved you too

Somewhat surprisingly, though, when Will and Kevin get together to work on some songs, things turn out mostly okay. No, they don’t get back together or anything, but Will does go through some personal growth. He apologizes to Kevin, who has a new boyfriend, for the way he treated him and explains how new and confusing the relationship was. It’s a nice moment, and the “I loved you”/”I loved you too” exchange was appropriately gut wrenching.

Back on Autumn’s tour, the country star is getting just a little intense with Scarlett and Gunnar. She can’t stop prying into their lives, as she gets them to tell her everything about their relationship and how it ended. She’s actually the worst in that moment, and yet somehow she gets even worse as the episode goes on.

When the Exes and then Autumn (along with a surprise Rayna duet!) finish their sets and are hanging out backstage, Autumn can’t help but tell everyone about the personal history of the Exes. Naturally, Scarlett isn’t down with that, so she confronts Autumn (nicely! And in a killer dress!) and asks her to keeps things private. Autumn says she admires Scarlett for speaking up, but her evil glare and flirting with Gunnar post-confrontation suggest otherwise. This woman needs to go — and soon.

Things go a lot better for Juliette, who uses Avery to lure Glenn to the Grand Ole Opry to watch her perform. Juliette has learned a lot over the last little while. Most importantly, she’s learned to ask people for help and to appreciate those that have always had her back. So she dedicates a song to Glenn and then gives him a sincere, tear-filled apology. It’s a nice moment, seeing those two reconnect. Here’s hoping Juliette can stay on track.

While most folks are getting in some solid performances, Maddie’s doesn’t go so well. Sure, she’s doing well onstage, but then Deacon shows up after Daphne ratted her sister out, and things go off the rails. When a man approaches the stage and starts touching Maddie’s leg Deacon loses it, pushing the guy and dragging Maddie out of the bar. Cash tries to explain how she’s helping Maddie reach her potential, but Deacon’s having none of it. And you know what? I kind of can’t blame him. This may be the first time I’ve ever been on Deacon’s side. It can happen, guys!

Ultimately, “When There’s a Fire in Your Heart” ends with a lot of balls up in the air. Layla sees Avery and Juliette maybe starting to make things right and then bombards him with the news that she’s secured an opening slot on Luke’s tour and wants him to join her as band leader. There’s Rayna, who despite losing Layla to Luke’s tour decides that she wants to be on the road for 10 days anyway, so she starts working on tour dates. Then there’s the big moment, as Riff’s wife shows up at Luke’s office and says that she saw him packing a bag a few days ago and now she doesn’t know where he is. Looks like there’s still plenty of chaos left in this season!
