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?
