Juliette gets confirmation that she’s pregnant. She and Avery were always very careful. The father is most likely Jeff Fordham. Juliette makes a decision. She goes to another audition for the Patsy Cline movie. Layla is also reading for the part. She’s escorted there by Jeff, who tries to sign a new artist in Sadie Stone and later mocks Juliette when he sees her in the hall. As for Layla, her audition doesn’t go well.
