If you’ve been holding out for a decent Rayna and Deacon scene all season, you’ll get one here. FINALLY. But Sherri Shepherd’s absurdist ’70s fever-dream wig stands in your way.
Fug File: Nashville
It is bittersweet to write a recap in a post-TWoP world, given that TWoP is where I wrote my first ever TV recap, and where, in fact, the concept of the online TV recap was born. I remember when they had to explain patiently to e-mailers and others that they were recaps, not reviews, and now that term is everywhere. i09 did a nice piece on how much it shaped the Internet, and whatever you think about TWoP’s quality after the founders left, that sentiment is true.
Anyway: This week on Nashville, SECRETS ARE REVEALED. That’s a lazy line I just wrote, but also true.
I accidentally typed “Fug the Snow” at first, which I imagine is how a lot of people feel right now. This episode has some good blouses, bad pants, and a return to the nadir of Scarlett’s hair, which I am hoping she will cut off and sell for
money to send to her child who’s being raised by two humble innkeepers drugs.
My new favorite band is Gunnar, Avery, and Zoey, and if this show goes off the air at any point then those actors need to hit the road together.
I love it when I’m wrong: Teddy did INDEED watch Powers Boothe unplug and move on up to the great big outlet in the sky. This is going to make Thanksgiving so uncomfortable.
It seems two shows I watch have David Silvers on them: Pretty Little Liars, and now Nashville. If Scarlett doesn’t do a cover of “You Are So Precious To Me,” she is fired.
