The day we’ve been dreaming of for Nashville cuties Scarlett O’Connor (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio) finally came on Season 1, Episode 12 when the fresh-faced duo moved in together. Although they did it for practical reasons — Scarlett is broke since Avery (Jonathan Jackson) moved out, Gunnar hates his roommates — that doesn’t mean it might not turn into something romantic.
But before you go reminiscing about the day when the two locked lips at the Bluebird, E! is suggesting that it might not be so easy as that. “A sexy new singing cowboy will be rolling into two to stir up trouble between [spoiler] and [spoiler],” the site hints about a future new character. Although our first thought to be in the center of this conflict is Scarlett and Gunnar, there are a couple other possibilities.
Things for Rayna (Connie Britton) have been especially confusing recently, with Deacon (Charles Esten) kissing her shortly before Teddy (Eric Close) asks for a divorce. In the promo for episode 13, her old guitarist Liam returns, and it looks like she drowns her sorrows in his mouth and ‘tude. Could a “sexy new singing cowboy” get in the way of her and, well, everyone? Seems possible.
Another theory could be that the pair at hand isn’t a romantic one. Another recent spoiler mentions a new character named Ozzy, a super good-lookin' former addict-turned-sponsor, who will be swaggering into the show for a five episode arc. Could this guy be one and the same? And if so, could Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) and her mom, Jolene Barnes be the pair who will be affected by this sexy new cowboy?
