Nashville is back Wednesday, and we finally get to see Gunnar and Scarlett’s postcoital afterglow, which, truth be told, doesn’t look so bright in our exclusive clip below. Perhaps sleeping with the girl you’ve lusted after all season doesn’t fix every problem (like, the death of your brother).
The episode also features a guest appearance by Katie Couric, who grills Rayna (Connie Britton) about her failed marriage and career on her syndicated talk show. Meanwhile, Deacon (Charles Esten) is drawn to his veterinarian (guest star Susan Misner), Avery (Jonathan Jackson) does something to seriously piss off Dominic (Wyclef Jean), and Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) makes headlines again, no doubt, when the surprise concert she tweeted about to promote her album release takes a dangerous turn.
‘Nashville’ fans will have to wait a while for the Scarlett-Gunnar afterglow
