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 ABC hit. This week, Will Chase – who plays Luke Wheeler – writes about being the other man in the complicated life of Rayna Jaymes.
It's funny. Even with Deacon (Charles Esten) and all of his demons, fans demonize Luke, who has done absolutely nothing wrong. Like, I'm not a freakin' mess! I'm not a bad guy!
Deacon keeps coming and will keep coming. I think Rayna (Connie Britton) might feel a little bit like she's selling out. I like that it's messy rather than it being a maniacal mustache-twirling thing. Even with Deacon's faults, it doesn't mean he can't be good for Rayna. Fans are pretty outspoken with their love for that relationship.
