Talk about throwing every soap opera cliffhanger device into one not-to-be-missed episode! The folks at ABC’s Nashville delivered their season one finale last night which TV Line aptly dubbed,  “A huge reveal, a new pregnancy, a proposal and a car accident involving two of the lead characters? Good god, Nashville – save something for next season!”

But whatever the case, there was a lot for viewers to wrap their heads around! But the biggest part, Deacon (Charles Esten) fell of the wagon after 13 years of sobriety after finding out that Maddie is his bio-daughter and Rayna lied about it all these years!  When Rayna (Connie Britton) tries to stop a drunken Deacon from a getting behind the wheel after Juliette’s memorial performance for her mother at the Bluebird a fight ensured!  She gets behind the wheel instead and the two of them argue and get into a car accident and Deacon’s SUV rolls over several times! Are they going to come out of this alive? Well, we hope so! They are the series leads, along with Hayden Panettiere (Juliette)!

Elsewhere, Gunnar (Sal Palladio) proposed to Scarlett (Claire Bowen), Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley)  says she is pregnant with Teddy’s (Eric Close) child, Juliette learns her mother sacrificed her own life to protect Juliette and so much more!

OK weigh-in! What did you think of the season finale of Nashville?  Did you love the performances of Connie Britton, Charles Esten and Hayden Panettiere as much as we did?

Absolutely loved it! Totally addicted to this show and am so glad it was renewed. Wish there was a way to promote it to all the daytime soap fans to up the ratings so we can be sure it’ll stay on air for a while.

As for the season finale…perfect. It’s too long a wait til the new season.

Love Nashville. I could finally see – not sure I forgive – in the last thirty minutes Rayna’s choice to keep Deacon from their daughter. Charles Esten succeeded in making his character unrecognizable to his fans. I love what they have done with the characters of Juliette and Avery ( separately). I look forward to the story of Will next season.

I agree Callie. His drunken & violent behaviour certainly gave us a glimpse of what he must have been like before he became sober. Let’s hope they both survive so that we can see how all their relationships change now that the truth is out. Hopefully Deacon can have some sort of a relationship with Maddie.
I can’t wait until Nashville returns. Love the show so much.

There isn’t a character on this show that doesn’t have multiple levels–good for Rayna’s achiles heel to come out the same attitude of her tenderness with Juliette.
And I like the contrast between the sins of the flesh and the common–affairs, drug addiction, hair trigger tempers, and the sins of the poweful–wheeling dealing, embezzlement, corrupt uses of power. Who is Teddy to think of himself as better than Deacon with his backstabbing political opponents and shady deals–and at the same time, who would want an out of control addict around children.
Well done and looking forward to next season. (and I agree that I particularly like the redeeming qualities finally shown by Juliette and Avery–both of them two good actors and characters to be stuck in one note selfish twentysomething hood.

I think Avery was shown to be a good guy almost as soon as he turned his back on his band and Scarlet. He seemed remorseful and wistful…

I love Jonathan Jackson (Lucky GH and now Avery.

With that said I’m still rooting for Scarlet and Gunner…though I’m thinking they may pair Avery and Scarlet back together…

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.
