Courtesy/CMT

If you think Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) being robbed at gunpoint from last week’s episode of CMT’s Nashville caused shockwaves for the on-again off-again lovebirds, tonight’s episode was even more of an emotional-ringer as Scarlett faced the most harrowing ordeal.

The next morning after the robbery, Gunnar is at the police station, meanwhile Scarlett begins having excruitating pain in her stomach and notices blood on the sheets.  She is promptly taken to the hospital by Deacon (Charles Esten) where she learns her baby girl no longer has a heartbeat and that she suffered a spontaneous miscarriage .. to make things even more unbearable, Scarlett learns that she will have to deliver her stillborn child.

Nashville star, Clare Bowen took to Twitter immediately after the east coast airing of the episode sharing this message: “My heart is with all of the souls out there who have experienced the suffering portrayed on Nashville CMT tonight, some of my dearest loved ones included.  I have never felt this particular kind of pain, and can only imagine it to be all consuming – so it is with deepest respect and heartfelt prayer, that I urge anyone who has found themselves engulfed by grief of miscarriage or stillbirth, to allow your feelings be spoken, heard, and valued by those around you.  You are not alone. All my love,  Clare.”

So what did you think of Clare Bowen’s message on social media?  Did you see tonight’s emotional episode featuring Scarlett’s baby heartbreak? Comment below.

I’ve heard Clare Bowen speak in a few interviews and she seems like a genuinely good person so her message is in keeping with that. Empathetic. Supportive.

The episode was heartbreaking. I felt for her AND Gunner. LOL…I think they need to stay apart for good this time. He has given her all anyone lookng for love can ask for…his heart, his love, his compassion, loyalty. She rejected his marriage proposal on the ABC version, she wanted him back and then she cheated on him with what’s-his–face…the video producer. Now, Gunnar risks his life to protect her, runs to her at the hospital, makes up her bed…and she’s still not sure. Time to move on and be loved back, Gunnar!

The show’s been really picking up. After a rocky start…couldn’t stand the whole Juliette/gospel Church episodes…it’s coming back to itself. And, I’m liking Deacon and Jessie.

They need to bring back Luke. And, I could do without them trying to “hip” up the country feel with “kids gone wrong” ala Daphney’s new friend, Liv. Hope we’ve seen the last of her….

Rebecca, I agree wholeheartedly. The Scarlett concert scene was stunning. Out of nowhere came this beautiful, heartfelt moment and it really elevated the show. I guess I live on a different planet from Scarlett, because I would have married Gunnar (faults and all) years ago. I know Will really loves Gunnar, too, in an exquisitely unrequited way. We need more of Will with someone decent (he’s also my favorite singer on the show). And yes, far less Maddy. I like Jessie also but I hope we don’t have the usual “it’s too soon for Deacon to get involved” storyline. Glad the show has been renewed for season 6 also!

Hi Soaphound…

Yes; I’m getting chills (emotional ones) as I reflect on Scarlett’s song. Was very touching and can be applied to any loss in life. It really got me….

And, yes! A thousand times yes! LOL…give ME Gunnar! Love him.

We do differ on Maddie (y?) though. I like her. I like both sisters. They’re such good singers and well, they’re Rayna and Deacon’s (and Teddy’s) daughters. By the way, I think they should bring Teddy back. He got short-changed both in the show and as an actor. Though I do love how Deacon’s being a true father figure for Daphne.

I’m not sure if I think Gunnar loves Will. He did have a crush on him in season one…maybe he’s still carrying a torch (some you never get over, true.) But, I think it’s more of a deep friendship now…Gunnar, Avery and Will. I love their three way bromance! “Will” is stunning; great singer too. They’re all so talented!

Deacon and Rayna were the IT couple for so long…(I think it really sucks that she just up and left the show. Of course it’s her right as an actress…her career and all…but still, the Deacon/Rayna romance took so long to finally come together after all those troubled years, the history and then…oh, well. dead. So, not sure if they mentioned how much time has gone by since Rayna’s death. It would be too soon and kinda weird if he fell in love with Jesse at this point, but you can see he has one foot in the past (which will always be there) but the other is definitely walking toward Jesse.

So happy too about the renewal!

oops…I meant “not sure if Will loves Gunnar” in the romantic way. But I love the way you phrased it…”in an exquisitely unrequited way.” Beautifully said!

Why not call or write and let them know what needs to be done? Surely they are waiting for you to solve their problems and tell them how things should be. You should be in charge.

Rebecca, no worries. I knew what you meant about Will and Gunnar. And I have to say, Maddy scored major points with me when she doused Miss Juliet with that champagne! What was that fool woman (not) thinking? For someone who’s so devious, she doesn’t cover her tracks very well. All she had to do was tell that songwriter, “Hey, Maddy feels bad about passing on the song, so please don’t mention anything about it.” Problem solved. But then it wouldn’t be Drama! Hey, do you remember back in season 1 or 2 when Scarlett played that song about her mother (“BLACK ROSES”) and had the onstage breakdown? Another spine-tingling, epic scene!

Soaphound…yes! That was another great moment! (So sad when she lost her mom; Deacon his sister. But I love the bond between Scarlett and Deacon; always there for each other. We should all have a bond like that in real life.) I do have to say though, I was a great fan of Scarlett’s. She’s kinda getting on my nerves; always down, negative. There’s no “up” side to her. I’m not quite sure what Gunnar sees at this point….and I just felt she became very dismissive of his feelings until she finally let him go….

Hey Soaphound!

No new “Nashville” posts but I thought about you when I watched last week’s episode! It’s been really good. Gunnar’s back story was really touching. It makes Scarlett’s constant on again/off again with him more upsetting. He really needs a “home.” A secure love.

I’m not quite sure Rachel Bilson’s character is needed. So far she’s added nothing and is annoying…could she be Gunnar’s next love? (Though she seems to have a crush on Deacon and I sense a jealousy toward Jessie.)

You seem to be on every single page here and all over every page. I don’t understand all of your comments blasting other posters- I have been to this site on and off for years and you have been insulting and rude and you think you have every right to be since it is in defense of whatever causes you supposedly champion. That does not give you privilege or special pass to be so demeaning and rude to others. Disagree all you want but spare the name-calling and insulting others intelligence- and it has been numerous times not once and I have never seen an apology from you-ever. I have seen others apologize and try to make peace with you and you ignore those entirely. Love to have a break from all of your dissertations, but instead you will treat me to more of your abuse. Whatever.

AMEN!!!!!! WONDER IF SOME OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE A LIFE????

Rebecca, so glad you thought so, too. Loved last week’s episode.. I’m glad we got to see not only Gunnar’s sad past (yes, I did tear up), but what a terrific actor Sam Palladio is when he has good material and not just being Scarlett’s lapdog! On a superficial level, they finally let his hair grow out and he looked SO good last week. I am enjoying the show right now, especially since the daytime dramas (Y&R and GH) are kind of going through that dull summer phase. I hate what they did to Cane’s character, and I wasn’t even a fan of his. They just let Victoria continue as the worst boss since Leona Helmsley and that smarmy creep Billy just coasts along like Teflon. I hate it when that happens! So, thank heavens for NASHVILLE.

Soaphound…yes. Sam Palladio really gave a fantastic performance. He’s always been sweet…from the first time he hesitantly approached Scarlett at the Blue Bird. (Did you know he’s British and Clare is Australian? Always amazes me when actors are able to perfect another dialect. Not only are they both speaking in an American accent but they sound like they’re truly from Nashville! Although, perhaps those that ARE really from Nashville would disagree with me. 😉 ) Wonderful episode/actor/character.

Last night! The show keeps getting better and better! And I must admit I didn’t like the first few episodes of this CMT version. But Zwick and Hershkovitz are great writers and have not disappointed. I’m loving how Deacon and Jessie’s story is unfolding and I thought it was adorable how she kidnapped him for that hour getaway! So cute; I “smiled out loud.”

Deacon’s concert was fantastic and moving. And Maddie? She’s obviously become central this season as well but I think it’s a wise decision. She’s gorgeous, is an incredible singer and it seems fitting that she’d follow in Rayna’s footsteps. I’m glad that Daphne is getting airtime, too. I worry about that young actress though. Even in real life, her sister gets much more attention/guest spots.

Oh! LOL! I even liked Rachel Bilson last night, after just tellling you I found her character annoying.

I can’t commiserate with you on Y&R. I watch that show very sporadically. I do know who Cain (Cane?) is though (and did watch when Chelsea blew up Adam) came back to marry Cain, was thought dead, came “back to life” and as far as I last heard they’re both leaving the show. “Victoria…Leona Helmsely” 😉

Oh. On that “superficial” level? I so agree! I like Sam with longer hair, too. But then I’m partial to guys with long hair. Matt Cohen (GH). Check him out on youtube where his is much longer. Stunning.

Clare Bowen has an amazing voice. I was moved to tears during her performance. I like Maddy and Daphne just not crazy about their storylines. I would also like to hear more music and see a few more male characters introduced.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Yes, Carol, I concur. We need a really decent guy for Will and MUCH MORE music. Still, I’m delighted the show is still on and staying put for a while. And how about some “diva-like” competition for Juliet, since they dumped Layla.

Really good episode. NASHVILLE is finally a show worth watching with Zwick and Herskowitz as show runners.

THIS SHOW HAS GONE BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL GOOD WRITING…AND THAT IS A GOOD THING. ALL THE ACTORS ARE VERY GOOD AND THE STORY LINES HAVE PICKED UP….SO GLAD THEY ARE RENEWED FOR SEASON 6.

NASHVILLE Midseason Premiere: You Gotta Have Heart

On Thursday night’s Nashville midseason premiere: heartache, heartbreak, and heart damage were the order of the day.  Through the hour episode, the Nashville men took front and center stage through their emotional songs and their dramatic turns.  

Courtesy/CMT

We pick up right after Will (Chris Carmack) is rushed to the hospital after collapsing during The Chew performance in New York.  Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Alannah (Rainee Blake) learn from the doctor that their friend and bandmate is suffering from none other than a heart infection. The physician says, “Are any of you aware that he was using needles, injecting steroids?” Avery (Jonathan Jackson), and Alannah are stunned while Gunnar reveals that he knew about Will injecting himself once.  When Avery and Gunnar go visit Will in his hospital room, Gunnar is mad because he thinks it is “stupid” that Will did this to himself.

Will, as usual, sloughs it off and apologizes. But things don’t look good for Will. The doctor tells the country star to take it easy, and that he might need surgery, because there is something going on in his mitral valve in his heart. Will receives bad news; that he can’t play concerts or perform anytime soon.

When the news spreads through Nashville that Will has survived this heart scare, none other than Zach (Cameron Scoggins), Will’s ex, surprises him when Will is at home resting.  Zach gets a clue that Will’s steroid use may have something to do with the good-looking trainer, Mark, who he flaunted in front of his face when the two of them broke up.  As the two of them kind of flirt with each other, Zach mentions that Mark and him broke up, leaving a possible window of hope that Zach and Will might get back together again.  

Scarlett (Clare Bowen), who sees that Will is feeling sorry for himself, gives him a notebook and a pen and tells him to try to write a song about his feelings, even though Will protests that he is a showman, not a songwriter. But of course, in true Nashville fashion, Will comes up with an emotional song by the end of the episode, sung and played to perfection by Carmack.

As for Avery, is there anything cuter than Avery with his young daughter Cadence, while MIA mother Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) has once again put him in a position where he’s raising this child all by himself?  Meanwhile Alannah, who has slept with Gunnar, is very attracted to Avery. 

One night, after it appears that she hit the sack with Gunnar, she goes over to Avery’s to hang out for some drinking … dancing … and talking.  It is apparent that Avery enjoys her company, and she is clearly into him. Nothing happens between them.  They both fall asleep separately in the living room, and the next morning Avery thanks her for her support. 

However, a tabloid photo surfaces on Gunnar’s phone that says there’s a woman sneaking out of Avery’s house. When he sees that it is none other than Alannah, Gunnar is livid! He heads over to a rehearsal begging for a fight. They don’t have a fight, but instead, Gunnar gets hit in the nose by the band member’s guitar. The way it looks to us, maybe, just maybe, Gunnar and Will, who have been good friends, even though Gunnar hasn’t slept with a guy that maybe, just maybe, they could end up together?  After all, Gunnar and Will did kiss that one time.  Is this just wishful thinking, or could Nashville go down this road before its series finale?

As for Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), who has been the epicenter of the show, since Connie Britton has departed, he has gotten himself caught in the middle and involved with Jessie (Kaitlin Doubleday) and her ex, Brad (Jeff Nordling). Brad is suing Jessie for full custody of their son. Deacon’s past of alcohol abuse and and fights don’t look good for them, and it’s tearing this possible new love affair apart.  Later, Jessie and Deacon profess they don’t want to lose each other.

Courtesy/CMT

However, the most poignant moment of the show happened when Maddie (Lennon Stella), who knocked back some booze during Jonah’s birthday week, showed up back at Deacon and Rayna’s home.  She’s defiant, and she wants to move out.  Deacon notices that she’s drinking water, looking dehydrated like she’s hungover from alcohol. 

He confronts her and says, “What the heck were you thinking?” She screams that she’s an adult, and she’s 18.  He says, “Not in this house you’re not!” She fires back, “Maybe I should move out!” As they’re both crying, and they begin to calm down. Deacon is fearful that he could pass the addiction gene of alcohol onto his daughter.  He reflects on how he lost so many years with Rayna, and so many years with his daughter, and that he doesn’t want Maddie to make the same mistakes as he did.

At the end of the episode, seeing how her sister, Daphne (Maisy Stella) is broken up over the fact that she doesn’t want Maddie to move out, she ends up in bed hanging out with her dad and her sister, and they hug it out now she’s going to stay, and not leave the nest.

So, what did you think about midseason premiere of Nashville?  Did it have a lot of heart? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

NASHVILLE: What’s Next? The Final 8 Episodes Set To Begin!

After ‘Nashies’ hung on to their favorite primetime soap opera through its cancellation by ABC, its series star departing the series, and the news that CMT has made it official that this sixth and final season would be its last, viewers will learn how it will all end for some of their favorite characters as the final eight episodes begin to air starting tomorrow on Thursday June 7th at 8PMEST.  The series finale airs this summer on Friday, July 26.

Creator Callie Khouri speaks on the latest developments, and what’s next for the characters she created in a new video teaser launched this week from the cable network.

For General Hospital fans, they have watched multi-Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) as Avery Barclay.  Avery has been the main love interest for Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere.  As the season heads towards its finale, Avery seems to have taken a liking to Alannah, while Juliette is immersed and trying to get the goods on the cult she finds herself in.  Will she make it back to Avery before he falls head over heels for someone else?

Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) suffered a medical disaster after overdoing his steroid use.  What will be the consequences of his actions?  Deacon’s father comes into the equation and old wounds will surface and we will learn more about why Deacon (Charles Esten) is the way he is.

In an interview with TV Insider, Charles Esten side-stepped the question if Rayna James (Britton) would be seen somehow in flashbacks, as a ghost, or something else?  All he would coyly say is: . “Of course, fans want to know.  I wanted to know too before the scripts came out, and now I do, and you soon will. How good was that?”

Watch the latest teaser for the final episodes of Nashville below!  Then let us know: what you think will happen to Deacon, Juliette, and Avery?  And, now that Nashville has concluded, do you hope Jonathan Jackson comes back to GH to reprise his role as Lucky Spencer? Comment below.
