A post shared by @rachelbilson on Mar 13, 2017 at 6:47pm Pdt In a parallel universe of The O.C., Summer Roberts didn't end up with Seth Cohen and Luke Ward didn't move to Portland - they became BFFs and traded in Newport for Nashville. At least, that's what might have happened had they been anything like their real-life counterparts, Rachel Bilson and Chris Carmack. The former costars have found themselves back on TV together again on Nashville, and Bilson celebrated the news with the best Instagram caption. "Welcome to Nashville B****......this is how it's done in Tennessee' @realcarmack #propergreeting #nashvillecmt," she wrote, referencing Luke's iconic "Welcome to The O.C., b*tch," line in the first episode. The only way this could be any more perfect is if Adam Brody and Benjamin McKenzie joined them (unfortunately, they're a little busy changing diapers, we imagine). »

Just like the door closed on the Rayna Jaymes years on the mid-season finale of the Cmt hit, it's time for the series to adapt to a life without Connie Britton's alter ego.
If some of you are still on the fence about whether to stick with the series when it returns for Season 5B later this year, we have some casting scoop that will surely soften the blow of the loss of Rayna.

However, after the mid-season finale, TV Line reported that Rachel Bilson (The O.C., Hart of Dixie) and Kaitlin Doubleday (Empire) will be joining the cast as series regulars.
Rachel Bilson can't escape that southern life!

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Nashville recap.
Nashville’s Rayna Jaymes was such a force of nature, it takes not one, not two but a whole recording booth full of people to replace her.
