"Nashville" returned with Juliette climbing her way back to the top while Rayna dealt with a personal tragedy.

In "They Don't Make 'Em Like My Daddy Anymore," Teddy (Eric Close) delivers the news to Rayna (Connie Britton) that her father, Lamar (Powers Boothe), has died. He explains that Lamar died in his office, but leaves out the part that he didn't call anyone for help.

Rayna's daughters are devastated, but Rayna is determined not to be sad about the death of her murderous father.

Meanwhile, Deacon (Charles Esten) kills it at a gig with a band named Zunvery—a band comprised of Scarlett's (Clare Bowen) nemeses—and lands a recurring gig. Scarlett happens to come to the Bluebird when she sees her uncle introducing the band, and is not pleased.

Deacon learns of Lamar's death, and goes to Rayna's to be there for Rayna and their daughters. Rayna spills the news to Deacon that Lamar was implicated in her mother's death.

Rayna invites Deacon to Lamar's funeral, which is a simple, quiet ceremony.

Later, Teddy confesses to Megan that he never called for help when Lamar was having a heart attack, and let him die.

Juliette (Hayden Panetteire) records "Don't Put Dirt on My Grave Just Yet" with Avery (Jonathan Jackson). The New York Times praises her Opry performance even before she releases the single, which elevates her status as a serious artist.

The publicity catches the eye of Howie V., an unconventional music producer who wants her to get out of her comfort zone, and strip the country twang from her voice. Glen then quits, who says he feels like a dead weight when she's on the verge of greatness.

She tells Glen that he's the only one who pushes her to be herself, so she keeps him on. She also says that she likes Avery's version of her newest single better than the new mainstream version.

At the end of the episode, Rayna pours herself a glass of scotch in her father's former office, and finally lets out her bottled up emotions by smashing objects and letting tears flow. Tandy (Judith Hoag) and Teddy then enter, and she tells them that their lying needs to stop.

On the next episode, "Guilty Street," "After performing her manifesto song at her Opry induction, major pop labels are vying to sign Juliette, overwhelming Avery, who can barely afford to take her to dinner. Rayna has major money troubles of her own, since Tandy's been bouncing checks around town for Highway 65, affecting Rayna's ability to sign new artists. Deacon finds that life on the road is filled with temptation when he runs into an old friend, Ruth Bennett (Charlotte Ross) at an AA meeting, and Scarlett becomes more enmeshed with Liam."

Watch the promo below for "Guilty Street," which airs Wednesday, March 5 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
