by Nick Barnes


A set of promotional pictures from the forthcoming premiere episode of Nashville’s second season has been unveiled.

At the end of the first season, Rayna was involved in quite a big car crash and nobody really knew whether she was dead or alive. The promo pictures indicate that she is indeed alive but is in critical condition in hospital.

Some of the photos from the set see Rayna lay on a hospital bed with a tube in her mouth, indicating that she was very badly injured in the crash. Rayna’s daughter Maddie is also seen beside her bed and Juliette visits Rayna in the hospital to try and comfort Maddie.

According to the official synopsis that was unveiled recently, “After the crash, Rayna is in a coma and Deacon is left to wait on his pending jail sentence. Teddy is still shell shocked about Peggy’s pregnancy and struggles to understand where he belongs… Is it by Rayna’s side with his daughters?


“Meanwhile, Maddie grapples with the revelation that Deacon is her father and, feeling alone, turns to Juliette, unwittingly revealing the details of what happened before the traumatic crash. And Gunnar and Scarlett’s relationship becomes even more complicated after the proposal, so they turn to their friends, Will and Zoey, for support”.

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed that Rules of Engagement’s Oliver Hudson will appear in the second season. He will play the role of Jeff who is Rayna’s music label’s new executive. His insanely good looks and incredible charm come into play after Rayna’s album sales soar due to the car crash. Jeff is pleased with the success and it looks like he tries it on with her. Is it safe to be mixing business with pleasure?

The musical drama series starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere are Rayna and Juliette will return to ABC on September 25 at 10/9c.
