Nashville TV: Will Dante Destroy Juliette’s Relationship with Her Mom?
Nashville is juggling more love triangles then we know what to do with, and it looks like yet another hottie is being added to the mix! We've been falling in love with Dante (Jay Hernandez) since he first sauntered into Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) and Jolene's (Sylvia Jefferies) life a couple episodes back. And although he and Jules got hot and heavy in Nashville Season 1, Episode 16 "I Saw the Light," it's not gonna be smooth sailing.
Basically, he's the male version of Juliette and Deacon's never-gonna spring offspring. You know, kinda successful, loves the highs of being in the spotlight (Jules) but doesn't do anything hard anymore — except for his unquenchable thirst for love.
In the promo for Episode 17, we see that Dante continues to love on the Ladies Barnes, but it's not the younger version getting his sober juices (powered by V8!) going. Nope, he's making out with Jolene. Straight up. We're with Jules when she judges the hookup: hard pass. Dis-gus-ting.
What do you think: Will this new development drive a wedge between Jolene and Juliette forever, or can they divvy him up (or dump him) and move on with their blossoming relationship? And is Dante as sketchy as he seems, or is there something we don't know about?
