- The relationship with Deacon and Rayna is going to get complicated as she is going through a divorce and he is (coincidentally) less-than available than he used to be.
- Juliette will continue to struggle with taking care of her mom, as well as her entire empire, which won't be as easy as it may have sounded to her in the beginning.
