When last we saw the characters of Nashville, love was distinctly not in the air in Music City. Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) had just jilted fiancé Luke Wheeler (Will Chase), Layla Grant (Aubrey Peeples) was floating face-down in a pool and Will Lexington (Chris Carmack) continued to struggle with being gay, sleeping with anything with breasts to try to prove he isn't.

In an exclusive clip from the Music City soap's winter premiere on Wednesday, Luke pays a visit to Rayna's ex Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten). Given the longstanding rivalry between the two men, it's just a matter of moments before things get physical. Actually, seconds: 26 to be precise.
After Rayna jilted him, Luke took his anger out on several reception chairs. But his reaction to Deacon's claim that he didn't play a part in the split is positively nasty: "It's always been about you – every damn day since you two met. I should have known better than to go sniffin' around that b----."

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode of the hit show. This week, Australian actress Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett O'Connor, chats about her character's journey from being a people pleaser to a more self-aware individual.
Scarlett is a very accommodating individual. She had an abusive upbringing. Her mother was a figure of tyranny. She screamed at her and caused chaos all the time. That was Scarlett's entire childhood – trying to take care of her mother who was incapacitated by grief or emotion. So Scarlett grew up trying to be quiet, trying to hide and be as unobtrusive as possible. She is terrified of people. She is frightened of being yelled at. She doesn't like being the center of attention because every time she's been the center of attention, it's been abusive. So she is a people pleaser.
She was told she had this beautiful voice and that she belonged on the stage. That's what everybody said. The majority of people say they worship celebrity, but Scarlett is not one of those people. Just because she has the talent doesn't mean she is one of those people who is clamoring to get on stage. So she was thrown into this very high level, working with Rayna at the top of the country music industry. For someone who is really shy, she really did it for the wrong reasons. She did it to make other people happy. She doesn't like letting people down. She stopped doing that, she stopped hurting herself to make other people happy.
