‘Nashville’ Episode Guide (Oct. 22): Juliette Worries About Keeping Her Pregnancy Secret

“Road Happy” (10/22/14) – Juliette frets over hiding her pregnancy before filming an exotic scene with movie star Noah West (Derek Hough).

Rayna flies her kids to meet her on tour, but learns that her increased fame now that she’s engaged to Luke is making Daphne feel entitled, while Maddie is simply miserable.

Kiley (Alexa PenaVega) tells Gunnar she’s leaving town, Will starts making careless mistakes in his personal life, and Scarlett is inspired by a homeless man (Mykelti Williamson) she meets while songwriting, on “Nashville,” WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring are Chaley Rose as Zoey Dalton, Aubrey Peeples as Layla Grant, Ed Amatrudo as Glenn Goodman, Kourtney Hansen as Emily, Brette Taylor as Pam York, Derek Hough as Noah West, David Alford as Bucky Dawes, Laura Benanti as Sadie Stone, William Neenan as Director, and Alexa PenaVega as Kiley York.

“Road Happy” was written by Dana Greenblatt and directed by Arlene Sanford.

The critically acclaimed drama series “Nashville” returns for a third season. In the season two finale, Rayna was left at a crossroads with marriage proposals from both Luke, her superstar boyfriend, and Deacon, her first love and the father of her oldest child. Whom will she choose?

And how will she navigate the turbulent road helming her own label, Highway 65? Juliette had lost the security of her newfound love with rising artist Avery, which foundered when she cheated on him with Jeff Fordham, the record label executive who has made no secret of his contempt for her. This season she will not only grapple with that heartbreak, but also with a pregnancy.

Will’s sham of a marriage is cracking under the weight of his admission to his wife Layla that he’s gay, and to the cameras of the reality show shadowing their every move. Will his burgeoning career be his salvation or an albatross? Scarlett, Gunnar and Avery continue to struggle to find their muses and voices within in the music industry, and the dynamics of their careers, friendships and search for love seems to shift continually.

Rayna’s daughters, Daphne and Maddie, cope with their mother’s engagement as well as her ever-increasing fame, while her ex-husband, Teddy, forms a shaky new alliance with Rayna’s nemesis, Jeff Fordham.

“Music City” can mean so many things to different people. In Nashville, musicians and songwriters are at the heart of the storm driven by their own ambitions. Some are fueled by their creativity and passion for fame. Others struggle to cope with the pressures of success and doing everything in their power to stay on top.

“Nashville” stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O’Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Will Chase as Luke Wheeler, Eric Close as Teddy Conrad, Charles Esten as Deacon, Oliver Hudson as Jeff Fordham, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad and Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad.

Dee Johnson (“Boss,” “The Good Wife”), “The War Room,” “A Perfect Candidate”), Callie Khouri (“Thelma & Louise”) and Steve Buchanan are executive producers of “Nashville.” The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment.
