Nashville Hayden Panettiere Return Juliette

Nashville Photos: Hayden Panettiere's (and Juliette's) Emotional Return

Might there be a thawing in Avery’s Juliette freeze-out on Nashville? (It is spring now, after all.)

These new photos from the ABC country-music drama gives us hope that Cadence’s parents might be trying to make a go of it again; they also give us a glimpse of Hayden Panettiere’s return to the show after taking a leave of absence while she was treated for postpartum depression.

According to the official synopsis of the episode (which airs Wednesday, April 6, at 10/9c), Juliette finishes up her own treatment for postpartum depression and “finds herself at a critical crossroads upon her homecoming.” Though the pics make it seem as though Mama Barnes wants to be a big part of her daughter’s life — and dare we hope, Avery’s too? — the shots make it hard to read how that scene on the porch will play out.

    Really rooting for these two to make it work! Totally understand Avery feeling abandoned–he absolutely was–but I hope that he understands there was a physiological reason that was at least partially responsible for Juliette’s behavior.

    So Juliette is due back in episode 14, yes?

    I hope Juliette just concentrates on her daughter for now and leave repairing her relationship with Avery for later.Plus Avery might want to see if Juliette is totally better before he decides anything.

    Can’t wait to have Juliette bacck. The show is missing something without her. I have been watching her on TV since she was a little girl on The Guiding Light. Congrats on all your success.
