Nashville, Season 3, Episode 1: “That’s Me Without You”
Directed by Callie Khouri
Written by Callie Khouri
Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Est on ABC
Nashville comes back for its third season with almost no noise. What, after a magnificent pilot two years ago, was once supposed to be a ratings savior for ABC has become an afterthought for the network, who barely publicized its premiere. They have buzzy new shows to talk about: (How to Get Away With Murder, Black-ish), and returning ratings hits to protect: (Scandal, uh… Scandal). And yet Nashville persists on network television representing a category that doesn’t even exist, the musical soap opera. Those two genres have never been more unfashionable. Musicals must cloak themselves in faux-edgy irony like Glee or die spectacular deaths (Rip Smash.) There are other soaps, especially on ABC, but they have to be structured like procedurals and contain a healthy »

Nashville‘s Rayna Jaymes probably makes the right decision in the series’ Season 3 premiere, and I really, really hate her for it.
Before you angrily mobilize to spray-paint a giant “Deyna 4eva” on my house, hear me out. The best decision Ray could’ve made would be to come clean with both of her beaus: “Deacon, you are one Hot Pocket, but you and I need to figure. some. stuff. out. before we even think about doing this again. And Luke, the fact that I can’t do more than plaster a half-amused smile on my face in your presence »
On tonight's premiere episode of Nashville,"That's Me Without You," Scarlett, Avery and Gunnar blow town. Juliette auditions to play the role of Patsy Cline. Rayna struggles with a life-changing decision.
When we last saw our favorite group of songwriters, musicians, up-and-comers, has-beens and superstars, their lives were in various states of states of upheaval. Rayna got two marriage proposals in one night, Gunnar told Scarlett she shouldn't leave Nashville, Will finally came out of the closet to Layla, and Avery found out about Juliette's one night, and apparently unsatisfying, fling with the slimy Jeff Fordham. »
Recently, ABC finally released the new,official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Nashville" premiere episode 1 of season 3. The episode is entitled, "That's Me Without You," and it sounds things will get pretty interesting indeed as Rayna has to decide whether to spend her life with Deacon or Luke, and more. In the new, 1st episode press release: A torn Rayna is going to have to choose not just between two men, but two directions that her life could take. Juliette, struggling to repair her relationship with Avery, is going to audition for the leading role of a film biopic. In the meantime, Scarlett, determined to start fresh, will embark on a road trip home and bonds with an unexpected stowaway, and Will and Layla will manage the fallout from his on-camera confession. The third-season premiere of “Nashville” will be highlighted by three live performances within the episode—each performed twice »
"That?s Me Without You" ? In the uniquely structured season premiere, a torn Rayna must choose not just between two men, but two directions that her life could take. Juliette, struggling to repair her relationship with Avery, auditions for the leading role of a film biopic. Meanwhile, Scarlett, determined to start fresh, embarks on a road trip home and bonds with an unexpected stowaway, and Will and Layla manage the fallout from his on-camera confession. »
According to Deadline‘s sources, Emilia Clarke and Sam Clafin are currently in negotiations to star opposite each other in MGM’s Me Without You. The movie is set to be directed by TV and stage alum Thea Sharrock, who’ll make her feature film debut.
Based on the best-selling novel by Jojo Moyes, Me Without You is chick-lit personified. Will (presumably Clafin), a self-centred, handsome fop gets into an accident and requires a full-time carer. Cue the lovely and delightful Lou (also, presumably Clarke), the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who needs any job at all to help her family pay the bills.
I couldn’t finish the book. I made it about thirty pages in before I gave up in favour of The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving – same topic, still fiction, a hell of a lot funnier. Still, there’s a market for this type of fluff, »
