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?
