Music City Mayhem: 6 Things You Need to Know Before ‘Nashville’ Returns
Nashville withdrawal ends tonight, as the ABC show returns with all-new episodes. While just exactly what pandemonium the second half of Season Three will bring remains uncertain, here’s a quick refresher course on where we left off, with everything you need to know before the musical drama resumes, including news of a groundbreaking new cast member on the horizon.
1. Although we were expecting Rayna and Luke to tie the knot (as if!), it was actually Juliette and Avery who were married at the close of the winter finale. Next up for the reconciled couple is the impending birth of their baby girl, which will surely go off without a hitch. OK, maybe not. Let’s just hope they don’t name the baby Patsy in a bid to drum up box-office for the Patsy Cline biopic Juliette has been filming. Speaking of the biopic, if Juliette’s co-star, Noah, remains on the scene, it’s likely his presence will generate some friction for the newly married couple.
2. Now that Rayna has called off her wedding to Luke, who was last seen not taking the news very well, will Deacon swoop in and sweep Rayna off her feet? Since Rayna’s goal seems to be regaining control of her life at home with her daughters, it’s not very likely she’ll rebound with her old love too quickly. Deacon has other things on his mind, anyway, now that he’s facing liver cancer. Given a little time, the two of them will probably find their way back to each other — and Luke is sure to take that news just as well. It’s potentially good news for lovestruck teens Maddie and Colt, however, since they won’t actually be sort-of-related.
3. Speaking of old loves reunited, when Gunnar discovered he was not young Micah’s father, after weeks of bonding with him, he headed to the only person he could think of to seek some much-needed comfort. Scarlett’s makeover project with homeless blues musician Terry appears to have been a disaster (he bolted from the stage at a Nashville festival when memories of his traumatic past life resurfaced), but it did bring Scarlett, Gunnar and Avery back together on stage, so, there’s that. If the frequently funny scenes from earlier this season featuring this threesome are any indication, more comic hijinks could ensue. Or things could just get weird… and not in a good way.
