Wednesday night, is the season 4 premiere of ABC’s Nashville 10PMEST on ABC.
The big cliffhanger from last season was if Deacon (Charles Esten), or his sister Beverly (Dana Wheeler-Nicholson), flatlined during liver transplant surgery needed to save Mr. Claybourne’s life.
Before heading for the operating room, Deacon urgently wanted to marry Rayna (Connie Britton), but she turned him down gently saying that this shouldn’t happen this way under these circumstances.
Charles Esten, in a new conversation with TV Line, said of that marriage proposal moment under such dire conditions: “I understand the concept of why you would. I understand all those reasons are why Deacon wanted it. But Rayna’s reasons are extremely valid, too.”
As to whether Deacon survives, Nashville showrunner Dee Johnson also told TV Line that the audience will know within the first several minutes of the episode!
So, do you think Deacon will survive? Do you think if he does that marriage is even in the cards for Deacon and Rayna? Or, do you think something else will continue to keep them apart? Share your theories below!
