3. "The truth is I'm gay, and I'm not ashamed of it." After working so hard to stay in the closet, Will sends shockwaves through Nashville when he comes out at a press conference. His feelings for Kevin Bicks give him the strength to face the world and admit who he is, even in front of his homophobic father.

4. "You're sick, Juliette, and you need help." Avery has tried everything to help Juliette, who won't acknowledge she's suffering from postpartum depression or even that anything is wrong.

5. "You're right, I am a son of a bitch! But I had to be, don't you get that? I couldn't lose you." Layla furiously takes a golf club to Jeff's windshield after she gets clued in to Jeff's controlling and manipulative behavior, including intentionally getting her fired from Jade St. John's tour, and making her believe it was her fault. But perhaps most shocking of all? Jeff's lame excuse actually works on Layla.
