We already know that Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) will be in a coma for at least part of the Nashville Season 2 premiere, and now TV Guide is revealing that we’ll get to see the country superstar and her current flame Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) as young crooners in love via a flashback sequence in the season opener.
The flashback will be set more than a decade ago, and as executive producer Dee Johnson reveals, the events occur in a "very idyllic spot" from the pair’s past.
As for what will be addressed in the flashback, Dee also mentioned it will feature “the explosive point where their relationship fell apart.”
While the flashback approach is something new for the ABC drama, Dee assures viewers that it will provide Rayna with some much-needed context in her life that could affect future decisions, explaining, "Rayna needs to look back at everything that happened in her life before making any forward movement.”
If we had to guess, we’d say that a comatose Rayna has the pivotal flashback. For some reason, comas and flashbacks just seem to go together.
