Gunnar and Scarlett's music has taken a back seat the Scarlett's relationship with Caleb and her grieving process for her mother. Now that she's decided to get back into her music career to honor her mother's memory, will she and Gunnar run into romance on the road?
Layla was one of the few people who knew how awesome Jeff's life was about to become with his new CEO position in Luke's brand. She also was the only one to see Juliette's scratches before Jeff took his tumble. Could she be the one to debunk whatever story Juliette is telling the media?
Poor Layla just can't catch a break. After her reality show embarrassment, sudden divorce, and failing music career, we almost thought she'd started to turn things around by signing with Rayna and getting to a good place with her feelings for Jeff. And then her boyfriend goes and falls off a roof. Life is rough for this country starlette.
As predicted, Juliette is not going to take kindly to the media besieging her with questions about Jeff's "suicide." Especially when she's probably terrified she'll be caught in a lie if Colt decides to spill the beans and tell everyone that Jeff only fell while trying to save Juliette.
Kelly Sutton guest stars this week to play a part in the wild media craze that surrounds Jeff's death and Juliette's shady involvement. There isn't a more perfect face to put on this issue than Kelly's, but we just hope she's ready for a fiery Juliette. Prepare for claws, Kelly!
After Jeff's untimely demise off the edge of the roof Juliette was perched on, this celebrity singer has got some explaining to do. While she desperately tries to pass it off as a suicide instead of an accidental homicide, she also still has to deal with her post-partum depression. Oi vey!
It looks like Frankie has apparently got some musical background too. In Nashville? What a shocker! Deacon and Frankie's love of music does create an interesting opportunity for their new bar, The Beverly, though. Maybe they can make it into the next Bluebird, where up and coming artists perform!
Two recovering alcoholics owning and working in their new bar? What could go wrong? Frankie seems to have managed just fine – despite the fact that his bar was about to go under and all those semantics – but Deacon is still recently back on the wagon.
No offense to the "Beverly Grieving Arc" Deacon just went through, but we're more than ready to see him and Rayna get back into the romance and start enjoying their happily ever after. If this new bar misadventure manage to rip them apart instead of bring them closer, we'll be so upset.
Rayna and Deacon might have made it through Beverly's untimely demise and the grieving process, but now that they're out the other side, new problems arise. Can Rayna make peace with Deacon buying a bar in Bev's memory in light of his alcoholic past?
While his dad talks up the big wigs at his party, Colt has other plans for the evening. Here we see him swiping a bottle of alcohol from the bar, but who does he intend to drink it with? Maddie, perhaps? Those two are on a dangerous path. First sex, now alcohol. What's next? Drugs and rock and roll?
