The duet ‘Nashville’ fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for finally arrived this week.

Rayna (Connie Britton) and Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) went head to head, and eventually mic to mic, on the Nov. 28 episode of Nashville. After a heated showdown between the dueling divas, they ultimately made nice and performed a killer song they wrote together. Dare I say they actually seemed to have fun? I give ’em about two more episodes before they’re back at each other’s throats and all is right with the world.

Sadly for Juliette, the beautiful music she made onstage didn’t translate to her love life. She was prepared to have a full-on naked party with Sean (Tilky Jones), but her football fella wasn’t ready to go all the way. She screamed at him for being gay — which he later proved he is not — then kicked him out. Ah, young love.

Fresh off her split from Avery (Jonathan Jackson), Scarlett (Clare Bowen) went hit the city for a girls’ night out, though things got pretty messy when Gunnar (Sam Palladio) freaked out at some guy for kissing her. Drunk and confused, Scarlett hailed a cab to Avery’s place, only to find him with Marilyn — post-coitus! That girl can’t catch a break, but hey, at least she’s pretty.

I still no curr about Teddy’s political subplot, but I’ll admit, it got a little juicy this week. Coleman threatened to release photos of Teddy making cozy times with Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) if he didn’t voluntarily drop out of the race, and judging by the promo for next week’s episode, I’m thinking Rayna doesn’t handle the revelation too well.

In fact, next week’s episode — the winter finale, to be more specific — looks like it’s going to be a rough ride for everybody: Gunnar kisses Scarlett, Juliette fights for Sean’s love, and the head of the record label tries to push a joint tour on Rayna. Again.

What did you think of this week’s episode? Will Rayna and Juliette’s cease fire last, or like me, are you excited to see them back to their usual cat fights? Go on, drop a comment!
