Rayna is struggling to strike the right balance with the two dads and their fatherhood responsibilities. Meanwhile, Lamar makes a plea to Rayna to secure Tandy’s support as a character witness.

Rayna tells Tandy what Jeff is planning. She says if she can get $20 million she can keep her label and the album. Tandy says she may jump back into the business world and offers her $3 million for a corner office and a leadership role at Highway 65. Rayna readily agrees but says they need a lot more than that. She asks Tandy what the house is worth and Tandy tells her no way.
