There has been much speculation and rumors that in Wednesday’s night (10PMEST/PST, ABC) big season finale episode of the first season of Nashville, that two characters will meet their maker!
In a brand new piece out from the L.A. Times on Nashville’s creator Callie Khouri, and her almost all female writing team discuss the successful formula that has made this country music drama sudser a winner with television fans. Khouri would only say, “You’ll have to tune in to find out,” when the Times tried to find out who might die! But Khouri added about the finale she directs, “It’s a huge episode. All these story lines coming together!”
In addition, Khouri and series star, Connie Britton were reported to be working on an emotional major scene in the finale between Nashville’s long-reigning country music queen Rayna Jaymes, and her onscreen 13-year-old daughter, played by Lennon Stella. “Just do it organically — tell the story,” Khouri says to Britton with both assertiveness and motherly assurance. She and Britton exchange more notes and then Khouri passes briskly through the crowded set to watch the scene on a monitor. Britton begins her lines, but then breaks character mid-sentence. “Hey, Callie, can we take it back a bit?” she asks. “I wanna try something.” ”Sure thing,” Khouri says. “You just keep doing what you gotta do, it’s OK. We can keep going back.” So what could be happening here in story? We are sure many of your might know!
So Nashville fans, who do you think might get “killed-off” in the season finale? Are you excited the series got renewed for a second season? Weigh-in!
