Nashville Season 1, Episode 16, “I Saw the Light” is coming soon to a living room near you and it is going to be a Thanksgiving table full of ridiculousness and strangers. Because we can never get enough of new people showing up to F with the fabric of our lives (no, not cotton), the Nashville producers have tossed in like 94 guest stars for this episode. We’ll have old favorites from The O.C., Gossip Girl, and the most underrated movie of all time, Crazy/Beautiful.
And it’s not like Deacon’s Episode 14 birthday party wherein all the guest stars were just musicians who probably showed up to drink free booze and hit on Hayden. Nope, these folks are tried and true acting vets who are going to stir up drama with Juliette (Hayden Panettiere), Rayna (Connie Britton), Deacon (Charles Esten), Gunnar (Sam Palladio), and Scarlett (Clare Bowen). What exactly is in store for our motley crew of social misfits? Let’s see:
Rayna takes her children and sister with her on tour in NYC, but Rayna doesn't like the influence Juliette is having on her daughters. Meanwhile Dante (Jay Hernandez) gives Juliette some career guidance that helps her see him in a whole new way; Deacon’s feelings for Stacey (Susan Misner) force him to reconsider his life on the road; a hunky new neighbor, Will (Chris Carmack), befriends Gunnar and Scarlett; Gunnar is thrown by Scarlett's hiding information from him; Lamar (Powers Boothe) threatens Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley); and Avery (Jonathan Jackson) jeopardizes his own future.
