I found this episode an odd one. It was hyped as a big,
dramatic one, and kind of disappointed on that front, as well as cutting short
every good/emotional scene. Anyway.
Rayna is still struggling to get her voice back, even through
voice coaching sessions. Jeff is spreading rumors about her voice being gone
and is demanding the masters of the album, as he owns it. Rayna decides she
definitely wants out of Edge Hill and goes to Lamar to ask for a business
investment into going out on her own. Lamar accepts, and goes to Teddy to ask
if he can invest in his hometown again after the Metro contracts were cancelled
(clearly to cover his losses with Rayna), but Teddy refuses. Meanwhile Tandy
must promise not to tell Rayna about convicting Lamar to ensure her own
immunity. It kills her to find out that Rayna is resting everything on her
father’s shoulders, but she keeps mute, and Lamar later gets arrested in a bar
Teddy is also drinking in. A look from him makes Lamar think that Teddy is the
one who ratted him out, and Tandy is not about to correct him, as she feels
horrible about doing what she did.
