Unpopular opinion here but I'm getting sick of Rayna. Almost every scene with her is of how she is the poor washed up middle aged singer. The show started with her own children being Juliette's groupies. How much more can poor Rayna take
Rayna treats Deacon like a toy only she can play with. Maybe it wasn't like that in the past but that is the vibe I'm getting now. If he knows what's best for him. he'll go on tour with Juliette and enjoy the perks that comes along with it. He's got nothing to loose i
Rayna herself is a bitch. I don't understand why she's stayed with Ted all these years. She doesn't seem to love him and there is definitely no respect there. Not that I blame her, the man is a looser but as his wife she should take the good with the bad and stop the whining. After all, he's always been in her shadow. I don't know how damaging it was for his ego. Meeting his opponent will boost it just fine Rayna
Scarlette is the better singer amongst all three of them but I think Juliette is better than Rayna. Her duet with Deacon was fantastic, Rayna/Deacon was bad
I think Rayna is actually a pretty realistic character. She's a rich girl who thinks she's struggled, but really never has. She has no clue how her own business works. She feels like she "saved" Deacon from his rehab and has pretty much rationalized that her keeping him around is "taking care of him" instead of really being about her being in love with him. Her relationship with Ted is about stability and the fact that he loves their girls and puts them first (the way she feels her own father didn't). She's incredibly sheltered and selfish, but she doesn't mean to be (nor does she realize it).
I hope that this whole season isn't Juliette vs Rayna though. The middle-aged star vs the young star is well played out (and always seems to be about women which is ridiculous and insane).
