Nashville Promo: Season 1 Episode 18 “Take These Chains From My Heart”
No offense to Music City, but Nashville is beginning to look like a big ole episode of Real Housewives drama-vommed all over it. No, seriously. Check out this promo for Season 1, Episode 18 "Take These Chains From My Heart" and then tell us that it's not one giant hot mess.
Let's break it down: Rayna (Connie Britton) starts off the promo by making out with Liam (Michiel Huisman) — while the two are presumably off "finishing a record" — and ends the THIRTY SECONDS by making Deacon's (Charles Esten) vet lady friend cry. Granted, it's not Ray-Ray's fault that Stacey (Susan Misner) has likely been watching that Sarah McLachlan animal cruelty ad too many times, but still: girl does not make it easy for her ex to move on.
And don't even get us started on that creepy Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) - Dante (Jay Hernandez) - Jolene (Sylvia Jefferies) triangle. Intergenerational hookups are no bueno in our books — no matter how you chop that family tree. But how does Jules think that she and soap-studs should be house hunting when there's a possibility that he wants to "sober companion" her mama right into bed? These three.
As for Gunnar (Sam Palladio)? Well, singing The Lumineers "Stubborn Love" and then taking a number from a hot chick Will LITERALLY just hit on in the last episode is an exercise in contradictions, and we HATE exercise. Get it together, Gunns — you're the only pure one left.
Check it out and then share the storyline you're most concerned about below.
