I actually thought it bothered Jeff a lot to have to do it - he seemed to be softening a LOT for her. I think he was a dick because anything less would not have been believable and Layla would have latched onto that.

I don't know why, but this episode just seemed to fall really flat to me. Like, kill a bunch of people to create some value... but we don't have to tie them together. Who did I miss btw - the review says 4.5
Mrs Mott
Ethel
Ma Petite
tar & feather dad (assuming he's the .5?)
who am I missing

Or more specifically, I think staying with Will is the least painful thing for her. It's the show and career that are so painful. Her broken romantic heart inspired music and she had a new appreciation for that.

Right now, in a strange way, they need each other. They've developed a friendship as they have gone through things together. She definitely did not choose to be portrayed a la Jessica Simpson by the reality people. Not much she can do to change that.
Will obviously cares about her as a friend. I think they will take care of each other. At least hope so.

Yes but she also knows she'd decimate Will if she left him now just from speculation alone, and she could have outed him but didn't.
I used to hate her as a character but I have a lot of empathy for her now. I like their new, mutually-supportive relationship.

I REALLY don't think she would... but I think he would. It becomes more of the awkward "will she believe me" thing where she risks the friendship either way. I think he really does love Rayna - you could see when he teared up at her last speech - but they are both such big personalities, that I don't think they make a "whole is greater than the sum of the parts" thing. I think it's the opposite and they cannibalize on each other's space.

Oh, and my other favorite moment: when Avery said that we're not our parents, you're not ___, and I'm not a judgemental, unforgiving jerk and as soon as he said it he realized he was. She didn't have to say a word. LOVED LOVED LOVED that moment.

I don't know about you, but I kept picking up on Luke admiring Sadie in a way that made me uncomfortable, i.e. the drunker and angrier he got, the more he looked at her like a conquest. If he gets drunk and angry again, he might just try to do something with her, and I don't think Sadie would participate, putting her in the situation of "do I tell my mentor her fiance is an ass, or keep to myself". Did anyone else pick up on that?

And that was just last & this season! Season 1 they did it in Atlanta, and have done it at least once since then before this. But - imagine if it started to rain while they were in the middle of the herd? Didn't that happen one of the times - I think in Atlanta?

Just want to say that if I ever am stuck in the Z.A., I want Miranda by my side b/c she's got guts. No pun intended ;)
