Nashville only has a few episodes left in its debut season, but that’s not stopping showrunners from pulling out all the stops as we head toward the finale. Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) and Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) are still on tour, but a few complications are about to make this one bumpy ride.

We’ve slowed down the promo, snapping each frame into our mental memories forever, and we want your theories on what it all means. After all, each of these pictures is worth, like, a thousand gasps.

Voiceover: “All new, next Wednesday...”

Well, we see that this is going to be another sheets-centric episode, and we can’t lie — that sounds pretty great to us. This looks like Dante and Juliette, but it could also be Jolene hanging in there. You’ll see why we think so soon...

Dante: “I’m not here”

Aw, just the sweet nothings we’ve been longing to hear... He sure made a quick exit. Let’s hope it wasn’t a similarly short stint in bed, whichever lady he spent time with.

Yep, Juliette. This promo would have you think she’s looking from the outside, in. But based on this sneak peek, we know she’s worried about who’s approaching, not who’s inside...

Voiceover: “...temptation...”

We’re happy Deacon’s happy with Stacey. But at the same time, snore.

That’s more like it. Full-butt underwear and no shirt in what looks like a trailer. Hot. And is that Avery looking in on things? Cuz that’s not creepy at all. We know he’s on the road as Juliette’s new roadie. And, well, we don’t have a lot more to say than that.

Voiceover: “...is everywhere.”

Yes. This. All the time.

Gunnar: “He says he can pick up a girl in three minutes flat.”

Gunnar’s mustache is all about the funnies.

Voiceover: “Between neighbors...”

But Will’s hat says “Challenge me, son. I got this.” We have no doubt that his little side-eyeing glance has a lot more behind it than just a response to Gunnar’s challenge. Like, maybe he wants to take something from Gunns?

Will: “Heard you’re going to be a big star.”

Scarlett loves to sing with the men in Gunnar’s life, but will this round end a little better than the last?

We don’t get it. What are you trying to do with that facial caterpillar? It’s the worst. Like, worse than Avery’s soul patch.

Voiceover: “...ex-lovers...”

At the end of the last episode, Lamar had a heart attack. Will he live? Rayna leaves the tour to get down to the hospital, so maybe? We’ll say yes  and add in a coma.

Deacon: “I just want you to know I’m thinkin’ about you.”

Deacon has a sexy phone voice, especially when he’s offering his support. And now a pause for these two pictures. Glorious:

Voiceover: “...even mother and daughter.”

Juliette looks pretty flawless, but something bad must’ve happened if she’s risking wrinkles...

Ew. Really? Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeene. We’re begging of you, please don’t take her man... (You knew it was coming.)

Credit: video still

Yep, that face. That’s the face we’d make if we saw this...

So many feelings, all of them start with “vom” and end with a newly sewn voodoo doll of our mothers.

Juliette: “Wha...you are DISGUSTING!”

Our thoughts, Jules.
