There has been much speculation and rumors that in Wednesday’s night (10PMEST/PST, ABC) big season finale episode of the first season of Nashville, that two characters will meet their maker!

In a brand new piece out from the L.A. Times on Nashville’s creator Callie Khouri, and her almost all female writing team discuss the successful formula that has made this country music drama sudser a winner with television fans.  Khouri would only say, “You’ll have to tune in to find out,” when the Times tried to find out who might die!  But Khouri added about the finale she directs, “It’s a huge episode. All these story lines coming together!”

In addition, Khouri and series star, Connie Britton were reported to be working on an emotional major scene in the finale between Nashville’s long-reigning country music queen Rayna Jaymes, and her onscreen 13-year-old daughter, played by Lennon Stella.  “Just do it organically — tell the story,” Khouri says to Britton with both assertiveness and motherly assurance.  She and Britton exchange more notes and then Khouri passes briskly through the crowded set to watch the scene on a monitor. Britton begins her lines, but then breaks character mid-sentence. “Hey, Callie, can we take it back a bit?” she asks. “I wanna try something.”  “Sure thing,” Khouri says. “You just keep doing what you gotta do, it’s OK. We can keep going back.”    So what could be happening here in story?  We are sure many of your might know!

I only started to watch it for JJ as I am still boycotting ABC over the cancellation of AMC and OLTL. Therefore all I have to say is if they kill off JJ, I’m done with Nashville.

You are not hurting ABC by boycotting you only hurting yourself by mussing out on some great prime-time soaps that would really like..
Boycotting is nonsense and accomplishes nothing..
ABC doesn’t even know you do watch nor do they care ,only one losing-out on your boycotting is you … 🙂

I live out of Nashville, they noted on the news about an explosion for the show Nashville. So the people in the area of the tapings didn’t freak out.

I think is the guitar player-turned roadie-back to playing guitar that cheated on Scarlet(can’t remember the character’s name) and the cowboy with blonde hair that lives upstairs from Scarlet and Gunnar. Two characters that won’t be missed but have been seen in the last couple of episodes.

The roadie/musician is Jonathan Jackson who played Lucky on General Hospital for many years. He happens to be a very good actor and they haven’t as of yet given him enough to do on this show. I doubt he’d be killed off…he’s too popular and I’m hoping they evolve his story.

I’m thinking maybe they’ll kill of Teddy’s girlfriend…and maybe Rayna’s manager? Or Juliette’s mom? (hope not; like her.)

Killing off any of the male heartthrobs wouldn’t be a wise decision…

Daisy, ur KIDDING me right. The guitar, roadie guy is Jonathan Jackson, one of the stars of the show, who writes lots of the music for the show and sings. It wont be him! Get to kow ur characters. The gay guy from upstairs, maybe.

I love “Nashville” so much, I look forward to it every week & am so happy that it’s been renewed for a second season.

I think it’s going to be that scammer (hate him so much what’s his name???) guy that scammed Juliet and his girlfriend — and then next year will be Juliet trying to cover it up.

I love NASHVILLE even with its flaws. I cannot imagine who may be offed in the finale. One might suspect the con artist Dante is one likely goner, leading to a murder mystery. Juliette on trial to protect her mother? Or vice versa? Losing Lamar may advance/create story and build tension between Rayne and her sister, the latter character is so underused but I think so vital. I would think nearly all the core characters are safe. I thoguht I read Will, the apparently gay/bi country singer, is signed as a regular next season. Peggy, Teddy’s mistress, also.

I just wish writers would take alittle more time is setting up plot points. I would like more suspense instead of outright surprise.

Joe

With the incriminating “tape” referred to in previews for tonight’s episode, I think Dante is likely our victim in the season finale – one last scheme gone too far, and someone puts a bullet in him to keep the tape from going public. But I would love for the writers to play with us a bit and blur the line on whodunnit (a la the death of Peter Hollister on Knots Landing, which I have always thought was a nod to the Coen Brothers’ masterful Blood Simple). Juliette and her mother will be obvious suspects, and it would be fun to have reasons to suspect them both. Imagining Juliette would work quickly to cover up whatever happened to protect her image and career. But would she be covering for herself, or for her mother? And what if neither of them did it, but they each think the other did?…
All that speculation aside, though, I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be someone like Peggy, who they’ve kind of written off anyway with Teddy’s discovery of her involvement in the divorce brouhaha.
On a side note – agree with Iakovos above – wish they would draw some plot lines out a bit more. I wasn’t surprised that Dante was a scheming double-crosser, but it would have been good to let that percolate with viewers for a couple of episodes before he took off. It would have made him much more of a villain in the audience’s eyes. As it was, he was just kind of nasty to some people at random. With more behind it, we still may not have seen his theft and disappearance coming, but building up to it more would have made for a better pay off, I think.
They have a lot of characters to manage here. I’m pretty sure they’ll leave us hanging on the Rayna-Deacon relationship, and maybe the Scarlett-Gunnar-Will situation, too.

I honestly think it will be Teddy and then Peggy (murder/suicide)…in the promo for the finale show, you hear Rayna screaming in the background. Peggy already tried to commit suicide because Teddy cut off the relationship…and that was BEFORE they were sleeping together. Leads me to believe that she is really going to go off of the deep end now that their relationship has progressed and he broke it off with her again. Just my opinion.

I’m really not sure but the season finale promo with Deacon behind the wheel of his car in a frantic state scared me (please don’t kill Deacon).

The May 15th episode was NOT the season finale. There was one more episode on May 22nd, and THAT’S the season finale.

If Connie Britton leaves the show and/or if the show “Nashville” stops filming in Nashville I will no longer be the least bit interested in watching what was one of my favorite shows.

Well first off I watched this show religiously and was so upset when it was cancelled I was heartbroken but when I heard it was coming back on I was thrilled but after tonight it was my last viewing. What the heck killing Reyna off she was the glue that held the show together I mean really is it a crime to see a couple happy. I guess I will have to find another show to watch during this time slot. I am sad and mad at the same time. So long Nashville

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
