TONIGHT On The Midseason Finale of NASHVILLE: What Will Happen To Deacon As Rayna and Luke's Nuptials Draw Near?



On tonight’s midseason finale of ABC’s Nashville (10PMET/PT) look for a harrowing scene within the episode! What we do know is that episode picks up after last week’s where Deacon (Charles Esten) professes his love in the most honest way to Rayna (Connie Britton), who is hell-bent on marrying Luke Wheeler (Will Chase)!

Charles Esten told TV Line that that monologue at the end of last week was different, “Deacon is processing pain and loss and trouble a lot better than he used to!”  But in the spirit of moving on while Rayna is getting hitched, Deacon decides to spend this week’s episode in Memphis after Luke’s tour wraps there.  It seems for Mr. Claybourne that it is the only way he can avoid the hub-bub of Ruke’s nuptials in Music City.  Scarlett (Claire Bowen) tags along with Deacon as well!

As for that moment in the promo for this week’s episode which finds Deacon on the floor unconscious surrounded by bottles of booze, which is not good given Deacon is a recovering alcoholic, Esten says his wife read the script for the fall finale before he did and let out from another room, “Oh my God!’ So that always means there’s something about to happen. This was one where she made a little noise from the other room, like a gasp.”

So would the gasp mean?  Could it be that one theory that is floating around out there has that Luke somehow got Deacon drunk, or made it look like Deacon had been drinking and framed him to keep him away from Ruke’s wedding? Or, did Deacon really hit the bottle?  And, will Rayna and Luke say their “I do’s” tonight?  So many questions!

ABC previews for tonight: When Luke finally returns home after wrapping up his Moon or Shine Tour just days before he and Rayna tie the knot, Rayna starts to feel conflicted about leaving their kids to go out on the road again, especially after she discovers that Luke has been making parenting decisions without her. Meanwhile, Will (Chris Carmack) invites Layla (Aubrey Peeples) on tour in an effort to keep her close but when he sees her flirting with his boss at a party, he begins to feel like he’s losing control of their situation. Then, Teddy (Eric Close) uses his Mayoral powers to track down a recent flame and Sadie (Laura Benanti) crosses paths with an unexpected ex. Later, after getting some advice from his mom, Avery (Jonathan Jackson) makes an unexpected decision.

Watch last week’s big moment where Luke professes his love to Rayna and preview for tonight’s episode below, and then weigh-in!  What do you think will happen to Deacon? Comment below!

Not gonna happen..
Rayna and Luke won’t get married.. (soap wedding drama lol
Deacon and Rayna are end game..

I think Luke will set Deacon up to keep him away from Rahyna and the girls for good! But it will backfire , as we’ll see next season. The truth always comes out.


Hayden Panettiere Reveals Filming ‘Nashville’ was ‘Traumatizing’; Writers Used Her Personal Struggles with Addiction, Postpartum as Storylines

Nashville and former Guiding Light star, Hayden Panettiere (ex-Lizzie, GL) opened up about her final seasons on the ABC country music primetime drama, where the show touched too close to home for the actress who played lead character, Juliette Barnes.

In an interview with The Messenger, Hayden shared that during the run of the show from 2012-2018, she feels that the writers, more often that not, pulled from her real life while crafting Juliette’s storylines.

Hayden said on the years she spent filming the series that it was “also very traumatizing because I felt like I was acting out my own life.”

Previously, the actress had shared that her dependency on alcohol and opioids as a teenager led to her dependency in her adult life. In addition, Nashville told the story of Juliette’s postpartum depression, which also mirrored Panettiere’s experience who went through the same thing when her own daughter was born.

Explaining what went down behind the scenes, Hayden recalled: “Straight from the beginning, it was like, I’m dating a football player, (and then) Juliette dates a football player. And then they turned her into an alcoholic. Then they turned to her leaving her daughter and going to this crazy (place) in Europe, and it was very obvious.”

The actress added, ‘They weren’t doing their homework. They weren’t creating new storylines. They were just looking at my life and going, ‘Oh, let’s just take what she’s going through and put our little spin on it.’ And then, ta-da! It’s done and done.”

Hayden added that she didn’t have time to care of herself and the pain she was going through physically and emotionally, so she tried to watch mindless TV and shows to help her calm down. Panettiere also felt that when she knew she had to go back to the set of Nashville, she did, “anything to keep my mind off of that because I knew that next day I was going to be back at it again. I was like, tear central. I don’t even think on a soap opera that I cried as much (as I did) on Nashville.”

Hayden is set to make three upcoming appearances of her A Conversation With Hayden Panettiere live series in New York on February 23 and Washington D.C. on February 24.

So, do you think the Nashville writers literally stole creative ideas for the character of Juliette Barnes based on Hayden’s personal struggles? It certainly on paper seems so. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
