NASHVILLE 4×03 Debriefing: Parting is such sweet sorrow

Oh, Nashville. You sure know how to yank a girl’s heartstrings.

Bring on the waterworks, folks, because just about everyone on this show is breaking your heart this week.

Sometimes this show is so on the nose, isn’t it?

As is often the case on Nashville, no one can have nice things for long on this show, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Deacon and Scarlett wait for news on Bev’s condition, Gunnar is still pouting about his ex, Juliette is nearing meltdown status, and Rayna deals with more label woes.

We’re back, y’all!

I didn’t realize how much I missed Nashville until it returned for its fourth season– I’m sure there’s a song in there somewhere, but we’ve got too much to talk about for that right now. Last season’s cliffhangers take center stage this week.

Did Deacon survive his transplant? Is Juliette relishing the single life after trading in her baby blues for Wheelin’ Dealin’ Records? Has Will embraced the spotlight since coming out? Has Gunnar crossed over into borderline stalker territory with his pursuit of Scarlet? Can I possibly ask more questions in this introduction? Click ahead to find out more!

When Nashville left us before the holidays, everyone’s troubles came home to roost, leaving us wondering how the show would untangle all the tricky webs it wove in the first half of the season. Last night’s midseason premiere picks up in the immediate aftermath, and no one is left unscathed from the drama — whether it’s Luke and Rayna’s botched wedding, Layla’s overdose, Deacon’s diagnosis, Gunnar’s paternity woes, or even Avery and Juliette’s marital-not-so-bliss.

NASHVILLE Winter Finale Debriefing: “I just wanna make sure it’s my life I’m living,” says everyone

CLARE BOWEN, CHARLES ESTEN

Way to close out 2014 with a bang, Nashville!

In the fall finale, we have a wedding, an overdose, a hookup and a paternity test, but none of them necessarily from the people you’d figure would have them. Talk about a roller coaster!

(Warning: As always, spoilers ahead for this week’s episode.)

NASHVILLE Debriefing: And the award goes to…

WILL CHASE, CONNIE BRITTON

… Anyone not named Luke Wheeler!

Nothing like the Country Music Association Awards to bring out the best and worst in Nashville’s most celebrated residents on its biggest night. After last week’s time jump, we’re right back in the thick of things. Luke (Will Chase) and Rayna (Connie Britton) still think they’re going to get married, but a pre-nup reveals just how little these two actually talk. Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) finally meets Avery’s (Jonathan Jackson) parents, but it doesn’t necessarily go as planned. After the humiliating premiere of their reality show, Will (Chris Carmack) is trying to make lemonade out of lemons, but Layla (Aubrey Peeples) looks like she’s been sucking on those lemons in the meantime. Gunnar’s (Sam Palladio) lapping up fatherhood, but Zoey’s (Chaley Rose) not game with playing stepmom. And everything comes to a head under the spotlights.

There’s never a dull moment on Nashville. When people aren’t sleeping together or maneuvering against each other, they’re undergoing near-death experiences or battling it out over award nominations and surprise long-lost children! Tonight’s episode seems to be all about trust, and the consequences of breaking it.

Well, after a three week hiatus, I’m finally all caught up on Nashville, and not a moment too soon, because drama is the name of the game in country music, apparently!

Since we left off, there’s been baby daddy drama of all kinds, more love triangles nobody really cares about anymore (right?), some growing pains from girls young and old(er), and creepiness from everyone’s favourite sociopathic record label head. Good times, am I right?

NASHVILLE Debriefing: Don’t forget to smile for the cameras

CONNIE BRITTON

This week on Nashville, our favorite messed-up country stars deal with the faltering record industry, bratty teenagers, incessant love triangles and unexpected pregnancies!

NASHVILLE Debriefing: It’s showtime!

Last season, Nashville ended with a real doozy, blowing up the relationships we’ve come to know and love (and hate). Luke  proposed to Rayna — then so did Deacon. Juliette lashed out at Avery by sleeping with evil Jeff Fordham, because she is a self-destructive mess. Will fessed up to new wife Layla that he was gay, made all the more complicated by the fact that they’re living their lives on camera for a reality show. Then Scarlett decided she was going to start fresh after her mental breakdown by leaving town, and Maddie and Daphne proved they were smarter than all the adults in their lives by calling them out on their crap. So where does that leave us in Season 3?

Lots of booze, lots of tears, not as much singing and more longing gazes than you can shake a stick at! Oh, and a gimmicky live performance at the Bluebird by Charles Esten that’s sure to tug at the heartstrings.
