As a recovering addict, Deacon (Charles Esten) has battled his fair share of demons. But is it his relationship with Rayna (Connie Britton) that could send him off the deep end?

TVLine’s Michael Ausiello says the relationship between the former lovers will take a toxic turn when Nashville returns next year.

Series creator Callie Khouri tells Michael that Deacon and Rayna are disappointed in one another and battle their own personal frustrations. She adds that despite Deacon’s struggle with substance abuse, “his other addiction is Rayna — and that’s the one that might kill him.”
