Well, it’s been a few weeks since Nashville last appeared on our screens, so I think it’s high time for a recap, don’t you?
The Maddie Claybourne situation has blown up, and it’s hit the tabloids and the daytime talk shows, even though Maddie dutifully took the video down. Things are rocky for Rayna and Luke after the revelation, and he reveals that he’s loved her all these years, with Deacon being a sore spot as a result. Deacon meanwhile is hurting over the break-up with Megan and trashes the cabin where he is spending time alone, and where there is no cell service. Back in Nashville the press are hounding Rayna, Teddy and their daughters, and the former nearly takes out a press guy who tries to grab Maddie. Desperate, Rayna and Luke go looking for Deacon, who they cannot find at his house, but they go up to the cabin and assume he’s been drinking from the empty bottle on the lawn. Rayna asks him to come back to Nashville and make a statement with her and Teddy but he refuses because of the incident with Megan.
