Teddy was still shell-shocked about Peggy’s pregnancy and struggled to understand where he belonged… Was it by Rayna’s side with his daughters? Meanwhile, Maddie grapples with the revelation that Deacon was her father and, feeling alone, turned to Juliette, unwittingly revealing the details of what happened before the traumatic crash. And Gunnar and Scarlett’s relationship became even more complicated after the proposal, so they turned to their friends, Will and Zoey, for support.

On tonight’s show Edgehill has appointed a new chief, Jeff Fordham. He’s powerful, sexy and on a mission to place the label back on top. That means it’s time to reveal his vision for the future. The question is — who will be part of it? Rayna has returned from her hiatus and the plan includes her own label, with Will and Scarlett attached. Though Jeff seems supportive, he has a different agenda. Juliette meets with the chief to discuss her new mature sound and look.
