We have yet to see the Nashville Season 2 premiere — that will grace us on September 25 at 10 p.m. ET — but ABC is already spilling new details about the second episode of the season. which will mark the arrival of a new chief at Edgehill Records.

The newcomer named Jeff Fordham will be played by Oliver Hudson, and if our intel is correct he may be headed for a brief fling with Rayna (Connie Britton) who already seems to be out of her coma. Damn girl, talk about a fast recovery!

The complete synopsis for Episode 2, “Never No More” is below:

Edgehill has appointed a new chief, Jeff Fordham. He's powerful, sexy and on a mission to place the label back on top. That means it's time to reveal his vision for the future. The question is who will be part of it? Rayna has returned from her hiatus and the plan includes her own label, with Will and Scarlett attached. Though Jeff seems supportive, he has a different agenda. Juliette meets with the chief to discuss her new mature sound and look. She details her passion to grow and her natural desire to be taken more seriously as an artist. Jeff could care less. In the meantime, a reality show vixen is the talk of the town and posing a new threat to Juliette's career.

We can already guess that Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) won’t be a big fan of Jeff’s especially if he has a thing for Rayna — but we’re more intrigued by the idea of Ms Jaymes’ own label.

Will (Chris Carmack) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) are ridiculously talented and we trust Rayna to mentor them, but will Jeff’s “different agenda get in the way? Share your thoughts below!

Nashville Season 2, Episode 2, “Never No More” will air on October 2 at 10 p.m. ET.
