With deepest thanks to Michael Ausiello from TV Line, we'd like to spread these loads and buckets of pre-finale and finale spoilers coming up on your most-wanted TV shows ! ! !
Without further adieu, here are the happenings you shouldn't miss on ---
TV show on spotlight: Nashville -- ABC
PRE-FINALE EPISODES | Now that Dante has insinuated his way into both Ms. Barnes' bed and management, “He ends up being a very big deal between Juliette and Jolene,” says series creator Callie Khouri. “Is he around for a while? Yes.” Back in Music City, Scarlett and Gunnar's new relationship has to deal with two pretty big threats: their hunky (possibly crazy) neighbor Will and Scarlett's success as a solo artist. Regarding the former, Khouri teases that “we'll see some uncomfortable moments.” And the latter? Gunnar might've imagined achieving fame without Scarlett, “but I don't know that he imagined that it would be the other way around,” she says. “And yet, he knows what she went through with Avery and doesn't want to be that guy. So I think he's going to work very hard not to be, but... he's a guy.” Meanwhile, if “that guy” Avery gets a shot at playing on the Red Lips White Lies tour, it'll be a looooong one. Being a roadie, Khouri says, is “not the fastest way to the top.”
MAY 22 SEASON FINALE | Khouri is keeping details about the finale as close as Rayna's keeping the truth about Maddie's paternity, but we managed to garner a few tidbits. Deacon will leave the tour and settle down in Nashville... for a while. “I wonder myself how long that would last,” muses the showrunner. “It doesn't seem like he knows how to do anything else.” Regardless of whether Juliette has her favorite bandleader in tow, Red Lips White Lies will continue for the rest of the season — and probably into the next one, pending the series' renewal. And Khouri says Rayna's definitely thinking about informing Deacon he's Maddie's daddy — even though the EP previously told TVLine she'd hold that reveal for the future. Might she have changed her tune? “You know what?” Khouri says with a cryptic laugh, “I can't talk about it.” Yes, but will Rayna?!
