Nashville Review: Impulse Control

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rayna has spent a long time working towards the launch of Highway 65 and her new album.

On Nashville Season 2 Episode 17, the big day was finally here!

I have praised Juliette's growth many times throughout Nashville season 2 and tonight she goes and backslides into the childish girl she was when we first met her character.

Rayna did her a huge solid when she agreed to sign on somebody who was basically untouchable in the country music world.

Juliette had to understand that just because Rayna may respect her personally, she still has an entire brand to take care of. Rayna literally mortgaged her house and used it as an asset to fund her own label. This is her personal dream.

Rayna is a veteran in this business and she knows that Juliette needs some damage control before she slowly rolls her out.

I don't know, Avery put it all so much more eloquently than I am. When did he become the Yoda of Nashville? 

What one person thinks is an opportunity might be what someone else thinks is a threat.

In the end, Juliette does what Juliette wants. She was so unhappy letting Scarlett have the press for two minutes that she dropped the bomb of her signing with Highway 65 against Rayna's wishes.

Pausing on Scarlett for a minute, I guess her little pill habit didn't end when things with Liam did. Girl, see a doctor, nerves are normal. You don't have to take some sketchy stuff that isn't prescribed to you just for confidence!

So back to Juliette and her announcement: Rayna leveled with her like an adult, told her what was up and then did immediate damage control. They did their duet and now they will just wait for the reviews. I do like that Rayna is still willing to be on her side, though. It shows loyalty on her behalf.

I just hope Juliette can reciprocate that faith in Rayna.

Juliette is not going to be Rayna's only Public Relations issue when "Maddie Claybourne's" video starts getting some hits. What's that? Rayna Jaymes and Deacon Claybourne have a love child that Teddy passed off as his own for 13 years? Call the press!

Deacon is about to have a whirlwind hit his life. Between Maddie's paternity going public and finding out about Megan and Teddy, the previews have set a rocky road for Deacon. I think he picked a great time to be joining Luke Wheeler's tour. 

First Juliette, then Maddie, now Will. Everyone was making impulsive decisions on this latest installment of Nashville.

Will can't think of another way to get rid of the possible gay rumors and since he refuses to go public, he decided proposing to Layla was the solution. 

Will has to figure things out for himself before involving anyone else. Everyone on this show needs to start thinking before they act!

So who do you think acted the most impulsively on this latest episode of Nashville

Every time I feel sorry for Juliette, she sure makes me regret it!
She had not right to announce at Rayna's party that she was signed to her label. Rayna is now her boss and if I was Rayna I would have dropped her right then and there. Rayna laying into her after that was great and I was surprised at how calm Rayna was the next day when she went to Juliette's house.
It is sad that this day in age a gay man has to fear that if he is himself that he will not sell records. He made a huge mistake proposing to Layla. I hope one day Will can finally be himself.
Teddy needs to take the next flight out of Nashville, he is so annoying and he is being really hard on Maddie, and while I do agree she should do her homework, he is only hard on her because of her music and Deacon. He is pushing her away and very soon she will have nothing to do with him. He had no issues when the girls ran up to Luke Wheeler and he hugged and kissed them but he has issues with Deacon. Not to mention again the whole Megan issue.
I like the idea of Avery producing Scarlett's album he will be a great fit and he will truly want what is best for her. He is in love with Juliette and he will not cheat on her so I hope Avery takes the job.
I also really want to see Gunner, Zoe and Avery form that band.

I think it's pretty clear the band with Gunnar, Zoey and Avery won't happen, at least not at this point. I'm growing tired of Will and his "I'm never going to be able to be myself" shtick............ I'm still looking for Scarlett to hit rock bottom and for noone other than Gunnar being there for her............. Why is it that Teddy always wants what he can't have? It's obvious from the previews of the next episode his debacle with Megan is going to blow up in his face........I'm hoping it doesn't send Deacon back to the bottle...............

Although Megan refused Teddie's further advances Iam afraid that Deacon hitting the road will see her weaken and continue her b**ch ways. Feel real bad for Deacon.
I love Juliett with Avery but Iam afraid she is about to drive him away over the Scarlett issue. Scarlett looks to be in self destruct mode again and Avery may lose Juilett trying to save her.
Will not able to admitt the truth will destroy Mattie.
