Daisy Jones and the Six has started to lose a little of its steam in this latest double bill of installments as the cracks begin to show. “Track 8: Looks Like We Made It” feels repetitive and uninspiring, peddling the usual rock band romances and cliches. That emotional ending does somewhat save the episode, offering more drama to come.

We recap the Prime Video series Daisy Jones and the Six Season 1 Episode 8, “Track 8: Looks Like We Made It,” which contains spoilers.

After months of partying in Greece, having run away from her old life, Daisy (Riley Keough) returns to the States and her world-famous band. The tour to promote ‘Aurora’ is in absolute disarray, and Daisy’s return only heightens the problems within the band. Three key romances and a torturous love triangle threaten to derail all their hard work. “Track 8: Looks Like We Made It” follows the band on their scandalous country-wide tour as Billy (Sam Claflin) takes on Daisy and her new husband.

Daisy Jones and the Six Season 1 Episode 8 Recap

The band practice for their sold-out tour, and instantly Billy and Daisy clash, arguing with one another. Billy doesn’t want key songs to feature on their setlist, and of course, Daisy battles against this decision. Outside the studio, Billy and Daisy argue in private. Daisy is upset that Billy called her a headcase in the Rolling Stone article. Billy says that Daisy also told the journalist about confidential information, including the time he missed his daughter’s birth. Billy feels justified in his retaliation. Daisy storms into the studio, demanding they add ‘Regret Me’ and ‘Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)’ to the setlist. Billy readies a retort, but he’s caught off guard. Daisy’s husband, Nicky, arrives. Will this completely alter the band’s dynamics?

What does the band demand on tour?

The band hired Rod Reyes (Timothy Olyphant) as their tour manager. Billy and Daisy make extravagant demands, asking for separate tour buses, while Daisy demands an elaborate wardrobe for her outlandish stage clothes. Rod tries to reason with them, these are demands that only legends can make, but the label agrees to every one of their requests.

The tour kicks off in the winter of 1976. They start with a small venue in Albuquerque and get off to a fantastic start. Daisy channels Stevie Nicks with her iconic dress sense and large stage presence. Billy and Daisy seem to bond again, although Nicky is always watching from the sidelines. The tour is plagued with much drug use and partying. Billy declines to get involved, though, choosing to exercise in the night or isolate himself from the others in his separate tour bus.

What do Billy and Daisy argue about?

During a press conference, tensions continue to skyrocket. Daisy is annoyed by the questioning as the reporters focus on her dress sense and lyrics. Billy also tries to downplay the questions, but Daisy wants the reporters to hear the truth. Afterward, Billy and Daisy argue some more. Daisy accuses Billy of being a liar. But Billy thinks Daisy is lying to herself too; she isn’t in love with Nicky. Meanwhile, Karen informs the rest of the band that she is dating Graham, making it official.

Camila joins the tour briefly, and the band party is even harder. Camila talks with Eddie privately, and it is implied that they had an affair the night Camila walked out on Billy. She tells Eddie that she was confused and hurt at the time, and it won’t ever happen again. That night, Daisy and Nicky have sex, but Daisy’s mind is elsewhere. Billy has gotten into her head again; she is starting to have doubts about Nicky.

What happens to Daisy on the tour?

Daisy begins to spiral. She refuses to eat and starts to take more and more drugs. This affects her stage performances too. She needs drugs to get through the set. She starts to stumble around in a daze on stage, mid-performance. Billy tries to get Rod to talk some sense into her but doesn’t want to rock the boat. Billy confronts Nicky about the drug use afterward, ending in a punch-up.

The Miami gig in 1977 follows. The set has a really bad energy, and Daisy is noticeably disorientated. She collapses on stage and cuts her leg. Billy drags her off stage, but the crowd starts to chant her name, persuading her to return. Billy urges her to stay off the stage, pushing Daisy harder. She returns and sings the one song Billy refuses to play, ‘Look at Us Now (Honeycomb).’ Billy storms off, and Daisy sings it alone without any instrumentation.

As the episode draws closer, Billy cradles Daisy in the shower, begging her to wake up. Daisy eventually does, staring upwards at Billy with pure love in her eyes. She says to Billy, ‘It’s you.’ This can be taken plainly as Daisy noticing Billy’s arrival or, more figuratively, she has chosen Billy over Nicky. Deep down, Daisy realizes that she only has eyes for Billy; this tour and the return to America have allowed her to see this more clearly.
