1. Poor Juliette was mourning the death of her mom.
2. Rayna broke the news to Daphne and Maddie that she was going to the CMAs with Deacon.
3. Gunnar had gotten arrested and missed Scarlett's show.
4. Meanwhile, Scarlett and Avery were getting their flirt on.
5. Deacon tried to get through to a heartbroken Juliette.
6. Teddy got a call form the attorney general's office and it wasn't a friendly one.
7. And Maddie showed up at Deacon's house to tell him she thought he was her real dad.
8. Gunnar tried to apologize to Scarlett with calla lilies.
9. Juliette thought she would be fine to attend the CMAs, but then she kind of a mental break.
Apparently, she went to the Ramona Singer School of Crazy Eyes.
10. But it's OK because Brad Paisley was there!
11. And he performed "Bitter Memory" with Rayna's blue leather pants.
12. And every time she sang the lyric "Bitter Memory," she side-eyed Deacon, who was on guitar, like this:
13. Afterwards, Deacon came into Rayna's dressing room and confronted her about being Maddie's father.
14. And Rayna was like:
15. Maddie was equally upset.
16. Meanwhile, Juliette left the CMAs to be with her mom.
17. And Gunnar showed up at Avery's gig, where he was dueting with Scarlett.
18. Sadly, after staring at a glass of whiskey intensely for a few minutes, the paternity drama led Deacon to break his sobriety after 13 years.
19. And after waking up in the bar the next day, he drunkenly fought Teddy outside of City Hall.
20. All the while, Rayna was at Juliette's mom's funeral, wondering where Deacon was.
21. And Gunnar had the unfortunate honor of walking up to Deacon's house in search of advice about Scarlett; instead, he found Deacon puking off of his porch.
22. Gunnar called Deacon's sponsor Coleman for help, which did not go over well.
23. Oh, and Lamar demoted Tandy, so she quit instead.
24. This is what Deacon looked like when he finally came to:
25. And he did take a shower. But then he also did this:
26. On the (sort of) upside, the police returned a destroyed chip to Juliette (that once held her sex tape) from her mom's apartment. And immediately afterward, her assistant handed her a letter from her mom.
27. And Rayna and her daughter hugged and made-up too.
28. And Peggy didn't want to be left out of such motherly experiences; she told Teddy that she's pregnant!
29. Even though she lied to the attorney general, he was still hot on Lamar and Teddy's trail. He stopped Tandy to have a little chat.
30. Juliette held a memorial for her mom at the Bluebird and sang "Nothing in This World Will Ever Break My Heart Again."
31. And Gunnar proposed to Scarlett!
32. Deacon showed up at the Bluebird and Rayna tried to talk things out with him.
33. But when he tried to drive away, with whisky in hand, she made sure she got behind the wheel.
Lots of slo-mo fighting ensued.
34. So much fighting, in fact, that it distracted Rayna from seeing a car coming. And she tried to swerve off the road, but the car flipped.
And then it ended. And we've had to wait FOUR MONTHS to find out what happened to
Tami Taylor Rayna Jaymes!!!!!!
