Nashville Season 3 Photos: Rayna and Deacon Make Sweet Music Together

The future’s looking bright for Nashville‘s finest in this gallery of first-look photos from the Season 3 premiere — so why does Juliette seem so miserable?

Perhaps she’s still a wreck over her split from Avery, though judging by the shot of the exes kissing, I’d say he decides to give her a second chance.

Meanwhile, Rayna looks happy as a clam singing alongside Deacon; and if that angry-looking picture of Luke is from the same event, then it’s safe to say their love triangle is far from over.

Of course, we can only speculate which guy Rayna chooses until Nashville returns Sept. 24, so for now, flip through our gallery of season premiere photos and drop a comment with your hopes/theories below.

    Maybe Avery and Juliette find out she is pregnant and she doesn’t know who is the father……? although it would be too early isn’t it?

  2. Jillian says:

    Fairly certain Avery and Juliette do NOT look reconciled here. If anything, they both look devastated and heartbroken. Ugh. Really hoping something brings them back together (and thanks to TVLine spoilers, I have hope!). Don’t want them to be apart for too long. Stupid Jeff!

  3. JJ says:

    I feel like those Rayna/Deacon photos have to be a red herring give the news that he’s sleeping with someone new a few episodes in. Maybe another flashback?

  4. Shira says:

    Rayna and Deacon can write their own version of the kamasutra. First it was the eye-sex, then the arm-sex and now forehead-sex. Dear lord, THEY ARE HOT TOGETHER!! (Luke, who?)

  5. Alicia says:

    Love Rayna and Deacon together so fed up of Rayna kidding herself on with Luke. But I feel like this is Nashville trying to get us excited about Rayna choosing Deacon when we know she won’t. Talk about dangling a carrot in front of a starving Deyna horse.

  6. Rosy says:

    Thank the lord…..finally some Rayna/Deacon. Sweet baby jesus…they have so much chemistry.

  7. Kasey says:

    I’m thinking that rather than Rayna/Deacon flashbacks, those photos may be of one of them, thinking of how things could be between them.
    Much as I’d love to think she follows her heart and picks Deacon, pretty sure the writers are going to give us what they want, and not what we want!

  8. Deacon and Rayna radiate chemistry thru still shots!
    As A writer, why in the world, would you not take advantage of that?

    • JJ says:

      I totally agree. I feel like they wasted it for most of last season, and it looks like they’re heading down the same exact track this season as well. Luke sucks the life out of Rayna. It got to the point where whenever he was on screen I’d get up to get a snack I was so bored.

      • My rain Voss says:

        What’s so annoying, not only do a Luke and RYna have no chemistry, it makes no sense that they’d be engaged.
        There is absolutely nothing in their relationship that we, the viewer, have seen, that would bring them to that point.
        It’s not like they’re this wildly passionate pair that have found their soulmate. It’s not like we’ve seen them slowly building a great friendship and falling in love.
        They haven’t dated, but, what, 6 months? We don’t get the feeling they even know each other that well!
        This storyline isn’t popular, even with viewers who don’t particularly care about Deacon and Rayna, so what the heck?

  9. Boiler says:

    Hopefully the Rayna and Deacon pictures current. However I suppose there is a reason that the actor who plays Luke is a regular.

  10. Izzie Duquette says:

    Pretty sure that’s one last kiss goodbye from Avery and that’s why Juliette is so miserable. I’m much more mystified by the picture of her assistant handing her scissors and her horrified expression at that…

  11. Ann says:

    This is just cruel! Why those in charge refuse to capitalize on this amazing chemistry boggles my mind. I know they probably think they’re keeping fans on the hook by dropping crumbs but it’s manipulative and they’ll be sorry when people lose patience and walk away. Nobody wants to see Rayna with Luke Wheeler or Deacon healing his broken heart with some random new woman, even if the eventual plan is to reunite them down the line.

  12. MA says:

    I’ll believe Rayna/Deacon when I see it. How dumb do these promo people think we are? It’s obviously a dream or memory or something. The shots are too dreamy to be real. Didn’t I read somewhere that they were doing some weird Sliding Doors things with Rayna imagining scenarios with both men? So maybe Luke’s scenario is awards shows and being shallow, and Deacon’s is music and being smoking hot together?

  13. Kay says:

    The pics of rayna and deacon look like a dream probably on deacon’s end Which is sad cause a true duet with them was totally lacking last season ….still gonna hope its real

  14. Victor Field says:

    “…so why does Juliette seem so miserable?”

    Because the show never gives her a break (or at least can’t give her one that isn’t tied into Rayna somehow), that’s why!

  15. Shira says:

    Regarding Rayna and Deacon, think Nashville will do a ‘sliding doors’ episode since choosing between Deacon and Luke is, For Rayna, choosing between the artist in her and the self made business woman. Think that she will imagine her life with Luke and go back to the moments with Deacon that she felt it was possible and the episode will go from future to past until Rayna will decide in the present. Do believe she will choose Luke, but not because she’ll choose “Luke” but because it’s like choosing herself for now. She wants to build her label and being one half of “country music golden couple” can help.
    Think she will be more aware than last season to what she’ll be missing if she doesn’t choose Deacon, since she’s not running away from him anymore. It’s not self preservation but a choice to put her career (and taking care of her family and the people depending on her) first.

    Also think that if last season the show explored the reasons for why Rayna and Deacon may never work, this season, when they’re both in such a different place, there’s room to explore the pull between them and that’s first and foremost, the music and Maddie. The fact that Rayna is still an artist at heart and the fact Deacon is an active father will pull them back eventually.

    As for Luke, she better breakup with him no matter what! Be single, date Liam, date Juliette for all I care, just….this no good of a relationship must end.

    Very hopeful about the season. The storylines seems fresh and interesting and even the Rayna and Deacon Storylines (together and apart) has the potential of being gratifying as long as the show really delve into the emotions of these two characters.

    Even though it will pain me to see Deacon and Rayna apart I’m hopeful they will interact more as parents/artists/friends/secretly-in-love couple.

    Wow, that was long…think I’m ready now for the premiere :)
