Last night on the season three premiere of ABC’s Nashville, fans of the series were finally going to learn just who Rayna James (Connie Britton) will choose to be engaged to and be the man in her life …  Deacon (Charles Esten) or Luke (Will Chase)?

As the events unfolded, and were told in real time and in moments 12 hours earlier in story, Rayna, after thinking back over her history with Deacon and their torrid romance and emotional baggage, goes to him to tell him, “I have loved you, and I’m sure gonna love you for the rest of my life, but I love him now. And he’s gonna give me something that I’m never gonna have with you.”  And what Rayna means is that she has a “clean slate” with Luke!  Deacon tries everything … kissing her hand and wrist and says to Rayna, “Tell me you don’t feel that?”  She can’t say she doesn’t!

Later, Rayna meets up with Luke on the red carpet of a big fundraiser!  Rayna kisses him, shows off her engagement ring to the paparazzi and then hugs Luke! But what is that look on her face? C’mon Rayna! Stop this madness and go back to Deacon!  To be continued …

Elsewhere, Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) is devastated as Avery (Jonathan Jackson) continues to tell her, he’s “sick of the sight of her” after learning she slept with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson).  He runs out and gets plastered and ends up trying to leave town with Scarlett (Claire Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio)!  We have to say, Jonathan Jackson plays drunk, as you would expect from the five-time Daytime Emmy winner, pretty spectacularly.   Of course, in the end Scarlett decides after wanting to leave Nashville to return to it, so she and the boys head back to Music City.

As for Juliette, she is having another meltdown,and cuts off her hair in anger at herself, and is having bouts of being sick to her stomach! She takes all her hurt and pain from her messing up her life with Avery and pours into an audition to play Patsy Cline in a new biopic they are casting in Nashville!  She does a fantastic job and is called back for a screen test but not before she learns … yup, she is pregnant!

And finally, after Will (Chris Carmack) comes clean to Layla that he is gay, she is rocked to the core and does not know how to handle it, especially since they are locked into a contract on the reality series they are filming.  When they tell the producer they want out, the shifty executive pulls out the video footage of Will admitting he is gay and threatens to expose the couple if they don’t comply and continue the charade to deliver the show they promised to the TV network.

Great write up. I agree, Jonathan plays drunk incredibly well which is no easy feat.
He never ceases to amaze me with his talent.
I wanted Rayna to choose Deacon too, Claudia.
Honestly, not sure what either men see in her.

I agree Mike..He sure has and has shown how much acting chops he has..I really like this show..Small cast who acts their asses off, solid writing and directing..This show should be getting Emmy nods in the acting Department!

I love everything about this show. I knew Rayna would choose Luke; the writers weren’t going to take away the angst of their separation so soon. I do like Luke; he’s good-looking and truly loves Rayna…but of course I have a crush on Deacon as almost everyone else. Ultimately, I think Rayna and Deacon will find their way back to each other…unless the writers want to go against the expected norm and never reunite them.

I loved that Teddy brought his daughter to Deacon’s show. It’s the only way he can hold on to her…by letting her go….

Want Rayna & Deacon together. I too loved the fact that Teddy brought the girls to Deacon’s show. Don’t like waiting for Deacon & Rayna to get together, have no patience – Come on Writers! Looking forward to Derek Hough and Hayden P next week.

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.
