Though the biggest decision Nashville‘s Juliette has made lately is “Vodka or Champagne?,” a coming episode finds her beleaguered husband with a much bigger choice on his hands. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)
As these photos from Season 4’s third episode show, Juliette is still trying to outrun her post-partum depression by boozing it on tour. What the pictures don’t show, however, is what Avery is doing in her absence.
It hurts too much to type it, so I’ll just cut-and-paste directly from the episode’s official synopsis: “Juliette continues a destructive pattern of erratic behavior, pushing Avery to make the heart-wrenching decision to file for divorce.”
Yep, Nashville fans: The Barkley-Barnes family is officially in capital-T Trouble.
It’s not like anyone else gets out of this hour unscathed, either: In other terrible news, a second aneurysm leaves Beverly brain dead, Deacon drowning in guilt and Scarlett with the unenviable task of choosing whether or not to keep her mother on life support.
