There were plenty of emotional cliffhangers in last night’s season two finale of ABC’s Nashville!  The big one, who will Rayna (Connie Britton) choose as her man?

After Luke Wheeler  (Will Chase) proposed to Rayna in front of a concert crowd, which either was the most romantic, or self-servicing, thing he has ever done, Rayna dumfounded basically says, “Yes” and wants to get off the stage!  But she seems genuinely in love!

Cue Deacon (Charles Esten)!  Over the season two finale it was apparent that Deacon is truly thinking about the family he could have had with Rayna and daughter Maddie.  When Deacon is witness to the marriage proposal by Luke, later he springs into action.  And in the final minutes of the episode, he comes to see Rayna. Deacon tells her he wants her back! He move in to kiss her…  and gives her back the ring he gave her!  Yup, it’s Rayna’s choice now! Will she choose the love of Luke?  Or, the deep-rooted love and history she shares with Deacon? 

And in other big developments, Will (Chris Carmack) finally has had it,  after losing the promotion for his record while in New York, and then later being contacted by the handsome gym trainer,  when Will heads back to Nashville he goes to see Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and his best friend implores him to stop lying to himself and everyone and admit he is gay.  Next thing you know, Will heads over to the apartment to see Layla trying to stay away from all the cameras in the house  from their reality show!  He takes her into the bedroom where he tells her that he is gay!  She looks horrified, but there was  a tiny camera in the wall/ceiling that captured his admission.

As for Avery and Juliette, Avery found out from Gunnar and Zoey that Juliette slept with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson). That prompted a a great scene between Jonathan Jackson (Avery) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette) about knowing how to love someone.   In the end, as of now they seem to be on the outs as Juliette seems to be always in self-destructive mode if she feels she is about to get burned!

And in the beautiful song and montage near the end of the season finale, Gunnar sings the song for Scarlett  (Claire Bowen) he wrote for her when she was recovering from her breakdown.  Scarlett came to say goodbye to Gunnar.  Next, they sing in beautiful harmony. Gunnar asks her to reconsider and not leave Nashville!  Is there hope for Gunnar and Scarlett yet?

I thought it was a great season finale episode and sets things in motion for next season.I think Rayna will stay engaged to Luke but fight her feelings for Deacon up until the wedding which i’m sure will happen sometime next season.

Last night’s show was pitch perfect and beautifully acted. Jonathan Jackson is such a gifted actor as is Hayden Pannettere. Those two enjoy an amazing chemistry. I enjoyed everyone’s story last night and the music was very good. Nashville is serving up some great night time soap which we all could use given what GH and Y&R are handing us these days,

I’d be torn too. I, like I think everyone else…love Deacon! But i have nothing against Luke. I believe he genuinely loves Rayna, he’s talented, good-looking and always has her back. I think I’d actually like if he double-crossed her, LOL, so I could feel good (without conflict) about her going back to Deacon! I do prefer him….but I’d feel bad for Luke.

Hope Juliette and Avery work it out…hope Scarlett stays in Nashville (and on the show)…seems they teased a possible rekindling of Scarlett and Gunnar…would love that too but again, would feel bad for his current gf (whose name escapes me.)

And, sigh…hope Will doesn’t kill himself after his admission goes viral!!!

Quite the satisfying finale and kudos to HP and JJ. I also am very impressed with the work of Lennon Stella as Maddie. not only a lovely young actress but has the musical chops to go in either direction. Her on screen relationship with CE and CB is written and portrayed with a realistic sensitivity. I felt her hope at a possible uniting of her parents crushed as she watched her mother accept Luke’s proposal. It wil be interesting to see what headaches she causes for the adults in her life next season. As someone who isn’t that big a fan of country/bluegrass, TPTB have enhanced this series with the musical backdrop that is the heart of Nashville the city itself and given me the extra bonus of learning to appreciate this particular genre.

Very happy with the finale..Fantastic acting and writing..This show seriously needs to get some emmy nods, especially the cast and writers.

I’m sooo torn, because I LOVE Deacon and I’ve been rooting for them from day 1. But I really like Luke too, I also liked Liam. The problem is Connie B. has such great chemistry with everyone on screen. It makes it hard to choose. But I loved Deacons confession. Oh man, was that great romance.

Really rooting for scarlett and gunnar I loved those 2 season 2 really pissed me off. I loved charlie and Juliette but love Avery and her for the long hale maybe charlie will come back if Avery and Juliette break up for a short while idk. I like Luke and ranya but let’s be honest we all no who ranya is going to end up with. But I loved the way they ended it with gunnar asking scarlett not to leave that was beautiful and u just saw all the love they have for eachother come back I just hope gunnar gets better in season 3 like more hands on and doesn’t beet around the bush but I also think scarlett needs to find herself without a guy and gunnar breaks it off with boring Zoe she’s so annoying. Get rid of Layla as well gunnar and scarlett r like ranya and deacon they r destined but hopefully it will only have taken them a year(season 2) to realize it unlike 12 years like ranya and deacon. The kids bug me in the show as well but obviously they aren’t going anywhere and maddie needs to be nicer to teddy he did raise her u know! I want scarlett to become more sure of herself and idk gunnar and her never right timing but season 3 it can be and they can be better and more fun together

That episode was amazingly perfect! While I am sad that Avery and Juliette broke up I’m kinda hoping they are bringing back Charlie to the next season. I thought he and Juliette would’ve went better together and plus I’d like to know a little more about him. I don’t know I don’t like it when characters are introduced and then leave. I wanna see them grow and change and evolve and I wanna badly see that happen with Charlie. Plus that could be a really good story-line with him involved cause his Ex-Wife could be jealous and make the lives of Juliette and Charlie a living hell. It would be interesting in my perspective.

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.

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.

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.
