In “It Must Be You,” Rayna isn’t having a very good day. The episode which aired Wednesday at 9 p.m. on “Nashville,” started with Rayna trying to figure out where she was going to get financing for her new record label now that her father’s been arrested and his considerable assets frozen.
Tandy suggests they attend the polo match in town where they will be able to hit up some oof Nashville’s old money for investment capital. On the surface, it’s a great plan but things couldn’t go worse for Rayna. Everyone she meets and talks to about her record company makes excuses to end the conversation and get away from her. Finally, one old family friend, outraged to see Tandy there because of her affiliations professionally with her father, calls them out on being there. He tells Rayna she ought to know better in light of the scandal than to be asking anyone for money.
Not only are her business plans in ruins, the day isn’t going well on a personal level either. She sees Teddy there and he gives her the cold shoulder. Then she runs into Deacon and he’s there with his new love interest, adding a little salt to the wound.
Rayna spies Juliette and Charlie Wentworth looking a little too friendly and cautions her about being involved with a rich, powerful and married man. Juliette takes offense and tells Rayna that in light of Rayna’s comments, Juliette will not be taking Scarlett – Rayna’s record label ingénue – on her tour after all.
The only bright spot comes in the form of Luke Wilson and that bright spot is questionable. Luke is interested in Rayna personally but she is oblivious until she approaches him about letting Scarlett open for him on his upcoming tour. He kisses her and she is stunned to silence. He says he’ll take Scarlett because she’s talented but he hopes it also means he’ll be seeing more of Rayna. Rayna agrees but it is plain to see she has never considered Luke as anything more than a fellow performer before this.
Will Rayna pick up Luke’s lead and follow him into a romantic relationship? It seems like things with her and Deacon are on hold and will be for a long time so why not? We’ll have to tune in to the next “Nashville” to find out more.
“Nashville” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
