In episode six, Daisy Jones and the Six channels Almost Famous, with the introduction of a music journalist and many cinematic pool parties. The show still works better, though, when it focuses on the music process and the music industry rather than the cliched romances we are presented with.
We recap the Prime Video series Daisy Jones and the Six Season 1 Episode 6, “Track 6: Whatever Gets You Thru The Night,” which contains spoilers.

Daisy Jones and the Six Season 1 Episode 6 Recap
The band have managed to record eight or nine songs in just a couple of weeks. Their debut album ‘Aurora’ is coming together nicely. It’s an intimate process, with Billy and Daisy constantly at each other’s throats, yet they continue to bond further. The band starts to notice these less-than-subtle hints but let it be, as the music they are making seems worth the ensuing scandal. The album process intensifies with plenty of drugs, parties, and lovemaking. Although Graham and Karen keep their relationship a secret from others.
Who is Jonah Berg?
Teddy senses the makings of an all-time classic album and brings in Rolling Stone’s writer Jonah Berg to review the recording process. Jonah witnesses all these in-band arguments and takes notes as Daisy and Billy continue to flirt with one another brazenly.
Meanwhile, Camila raises her child seemingly on her own. She finds Billy’s honest and revealing lyrics around the house and watches the husband gleefully chatting with Daisy on the phone. Camila isn’t an idiot; she sees what is happening but remains quiet for the time being. When she does bring up the lyrics, Billy lies and says they were written by Daisy instead.
Jonah takes Billy aside and questions him about this simmering, romantic affair. Billy says it is all just an act; he isn’t in love with Daisy. However, this make-believe performance has led to a weird yet successful dynamic. The two flirt like crazy but are also bitter rivals, competing in the studio. Jonah can see through Billy’s lies, though; he believes each song is a coded message from one singer to the other. Eddie however, thinks it is much more obvious than that!
