It’s so easy to forget that Henry is essentially Helen’s only remaining child. She raised him alongside Ashley and they grew up like siblings, but between Henry referring to her as ‘Doc’ and Ashley’s death, it’s just so easy to separate them from the obviously nurturing relationship they’ve had for decades.
But not in this moment. These few seconds after Nikola rescues him you see it in Helen. You see the love and the bond they have. You see Helen as a mother once again.
So my Opry lineup changed… It’s now Charlie Daniels Band, The Oak Ridge Boys, Kim Richey, Kathy Mattea, Caitlin Rose and a few others. Dude!! Fucking Kathy Mattea! Hells yes! I have no idea how I’m going to manage to actually work while I’m there.

Super bummed!! So excited that I’m going to Nashville next week. I’ve brought tickets to the Opry and I’m going to the Bluebird on Saturday to see Matraca Berg and Gretchen Peters. That’s awesome. But… On Wednesday after I leave, Liz Rose is playing there then on Thursday, Erin McCarley, Lucie Silvas and Kate York are playing. Not cool. I’ve wanted to see Erin play for so long but she hasn’t come to Boston since I’ve been here. Just bummed that I’ll miss her by three days. I think it’s official… I just need to move to Nashville.

So I’m going to do a little review of both this week’s and last week’s episodes… I was a little sick and the time got away from me. Anyway. I thought last week’s episode was great. The music was fantastic, the acting was incredible and the storylines seemed to fit well even if I had a problem with a few things that happened. This week, not so much…

"I think the forties are a time when you can sit back into who you are and what you’ve learned. I’m able to challenge myself more because I have a stronger sense of who I am and what I can do."
