ABC’s Nashville is back tonight (10PMET/PT) with an all-new episode, and this is the second to last one before the season finale! When we last left are favorite group of singer/songwriters in Music City, Scarlett (Claire Bowen) was having a complete meltdown on stage induced by pills, booze, and her crazy mother!
What will happen when the show picks back up tonight? According to ABC, here’s what to look for: Scarlett’s breakdown is driving everyone to point fingers at who might be responsible for her condition. Deacon is blaming Rayna for pushing her too fast, Rayna is blaming Juliette and for forcing her on stage and Beverly thinks Rayna is only interested in seeing her label succeed. It always feels like everyone has an axe to grind with Juliette so she turns to Avery, only to find him preoccupied with Scarlett. During her moment of weakness, she is driven right into the hands of her nemesis. Meanwhile, Layla tries to convince Will to join her in a reality show.
TV Line spoke with Nashville creator Callie Khouri on some insight into the Scarlett meltdown too! Khouri revealed, “What she’s (Scarlett) is realizing is that what she did, the way she dealt with the pressure… was very much like her uncle (Deacon). I don’t think she comes out of it thinking ‘Oh my god, I’m a drug addict’ or anything like that, but she does really look at how she deals with stress and pressure, and works through some issues with her family.”
Watch a preview for tonight’s episode after the jump! Then, let us know how you think Scarlett will come out of her meltdown? Is her ex Avery played by Jonathan Jackson, the only one that can get her back on the right track?
