"Nashville" ambled along last night, stumbling through the lackluster loose ends of its midseason finale with with an insanely dull love triangle to water things down instead of spicing them up. And then, abruptly and unceremoniously, there was a suicide and a murder.

"I'm Tired Of Pretending" centralized around a nexus of daddy issues. As Maddie becomes caught up in the implausibly juvenile interactions of Deacon and Teddy, Rayna and Tandy struggle with their respective torment over Lamar's imprisonment. And, once again, the James-Claybuorne-Conrad-Wyatt clan tangle themselves into a narrative fit for a backwoods country song.

It's always uplifting to see marginalized individuals, stand up for what they believe in and reclaim the power of their identity in a repressive setting. Although, the advocacy emotes less inspiration when it's juxtaposed with a phoned in ménage à trois that would even feel low brow for "Gossip Girl."

"It Must Be You" features the anticipated exposure of the Nashville elite and their role in the music industry. Headed to the polo match, Rayna tells Tandy that she feels out of place at "big hat events" and we soon see it's not just because she's typically down to earth.

Murder, She Sang

For an episode with such a snarky title, "You're No Angel Yourself" was surprisingly sympathetic. Juliette, Deacon and Gunnar -- all frustratingly stubborn denizens of "Nashville" -- were rounded out by their respective strengths over the course of the hour.

Rayna Has A BIG Problem

Miss Rayna James has lost her voice, and it would be very sad and shocking, if three weeks of "Nashville" promos hadn't explicitly told us that would happen.

Juliette turns on a news story about prayers for the "Queen of Country" and angrily calls her manager, snarling aggressively that she wants to "pray." It seems silly in the moment, almost enough to make us wonder whether Juliette is going to use prayers as part of her confusing revenge plot ... and then she does!
