Plus, Rayna’s husband is carrying a secret that could tear their family apart!

By the end of Nashville‘s Oct. 31 episode, none of the men in Rayna’s (Connie Britton) life were too happy with her. Deacon (Charles Esten) agreed to play with her at a fundraiser for Teddy (Eric Close), but got into a fight afte the performance: “Are we done here?” “Yeah, we’re done.” And on the flipside, Teddy got mad at Rayna over her relationship with Deacon! So, basically, everybody lost.

Of course, I’m not really sure who Teddy thinks he is accusing his wife of messing around when he’s got a pretty big secret of his own! We’re not sure what he did, but he and a woman named Maggie — yes, that was Kimberly Williams-Paisley from Father of the Bride — had a hush-hush chat about a “stupid” mistake that could jeopardize everything.

Any guesses?

Juliette’s life goes from bad — to purse:

The video of Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) stealing nail polish from the convenience store went predictably viral — more than 4 million views? Score! — but it caused the country cutie to learn a valuable lesson: There is such a thing as bad publicity.

But rather than apologize for her lapse in judgment during a huge Good Morning America interview, Juliette went totally off book, blaming the public for trying to make her fall from grace. And when Robin Roberts brought up her mother’s previous arrests, Juliette went nuts and pulled a Shannon Tweed: “This interview is over!” #DivaAlert

Juliette’s string of bad behavior forced the CMAs to yank her as a presenter — you’ve got to love all the ABC tie-ins — and now it’s possible she’ll lose her tour entirely. On the plus side, she found a lovely picture of herself as a baby while rooting through Jolene’s (Sylvia Jefferies) purse for drugs. So, you know, I guess she’ll just have to take the good with the bad.

Double dates are always a bad idea on TV:

Remember when I said Scarlett’s (Clare Bowen) love triangle made me uncomfortable because Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Avery (Jonathan Jackson) were both such great guys? Well, it turns out Avery’s not so great. He flipped out at Scarlett after a double date with Gunnar and Hailey, just because she tried to be a nice girlfriend and talk him up!

I’d say I can’t wait for Scarlett and Avery to break up so she can be with Gunnar, but it looks like Gunnar is having a pretty nice time with Hailey. So then Scarlett would be out on her butt, and no one would be happy. I’m curious to see how this plays out.

What do you think Teddy’s big secret could be? Did he cheat on Rayna — just like she cheated on him? And what are your thoughts on Scarlett’s messy love triangle? Drop a comment with your personal review of this week’s episode!
