Deacon, Avery and Juliette listen in the studio to a copy of Hallie’s demo. Juliette sings its praises. Deacon needs her to slow down. Deacon thinks Hallie is a roots performer, not a pop singer with commercial songs. Avery can see both of their sides. Juliette storms out.

Scarlett and Gunnar are shopping when they are approached by fans who want to know when she is due. Deacon comes home to find out about Daphne and Liv, who made the GIF. Deacon tells her an apology isn’t enough. He takes her phone for a month. Maddie doesn’t think it is enough of a punishment.

At breakfast, Daphne is angry that she doesn’t have her phone. Maddie sits next to her taking calls for interviews while Deacon makes pancakes. Meanwhile, Juliette accuses Avery for stabbing her in the back when he didn’t support her in front of Deacon. Avery tells her she needs to support Hallie who has broken up with George. Juliette agrees that Hallie should record her own style of music.

Juliette meets Hallie at the restaurant. Hallie thanks her for supporting her music. Juliette didn’t realize she had already talked to Avery. Juliette wanted to be the one to break the news.

Scarlett meets with a reporter for lunch who confesses that she had an affair with Damien. The situation becomes uncomfortable for Scarlett when she is asked if she too fell for his charm. Scarlett denies it. She asks Scarlett if he is the father of her baby. Scarlett refuses to answer as the reporter tries to get it out of her.

Hallie records her song in the studio while Avery watches with a smile. Juliette watches with jealousy. Deacon arrives home that night. Daphne has fallen asleep in Rayna’s closet, holding her clothes.

The next morning, Daphne lays in bed while Deacon talks through the door. Maddie is sleeping. No-one is happy. Deacon leaves feeling defeated. He heads to Scarlett’s, who is devastated over all the news reports. She cries and tells Deacon she is having a girl. A girl, who will grow up in a world where she will  have a lot more to face than Scarlett’s current problem. Deacon tells her that she will be a great mom. Just love her.

Maddie goes into Daphne’s room. She apologizes to her. She cries and tells Daphne that she misses Mom. They hug.
