Gunnar's proposal to Scarlett was one of Nashville's cliffhanger in season one that if handled the wrong way could potentially ruin the neophyte's singing career. That is of course if the writers' throws a monkey wrench at Scarlett this early.
So the question now is, will Scarlett hope for a happily-ever-after life with Gunnar and accept his proposal? Here's what TV Guide learned from Nashville actor Sam Palladio:
I wouldn't put money on it. "I don't think he'll be instantly a happy chappy when the show returns," Sam Palladio tells us. But that doesn't necessarily mean the relationship is dead. "He's growing and that's reflected in some of the music he writes and some other cool relationships that develop," Palladio says. "We see a new guy."
'Nashville' returns on Wednesday, Sept. 25 on ABC.
