The official synopsis of the episode reads as follows:

Juliette is excited about Rayna throwing her a star-studded baby shower, but when Rayna gets pulled into Sadie's drama instead of hosting, Juliette starts her own mama drama. Bucky and Luke Wheeler both are interested in signing rising singer/songwriter Ron Pope (who guest stars as himself). Gunnar is upset by Scarlett growing closer to Dr. Rand, and Sadie finds a kindred spirit in an old friend.

In tonight's episode Rayna would find herself spending her day at the police station, trying to help out her friend/client Sadie who accidentally shoots her abusive ex-husband.

Rayna, who was to host Juliette's baby shower, had to bail out at the last minute from the party, leaving a pregnant Juliette in a dilemma. Not just that, a new promo also shows that the country singer goes into labour at the end of the episode. This just makes one wonder, how will Juliette deal with it.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that voice coach Christina Aguilera will make her much anticipated debut on the show as Jade St John in episode 18, which will air on 15 April.
