'Nashville' Ends on a Shocking Cliffhanger: What Does This Mean for Rayna?

16 February 2017 7:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of Nashville. If you watched "If Tomorrow Never Comes," which aired Feb. 23, read our full recap to find out what happened to Rayna.

Is Nashville about to lose one of its own?

The Cmt country music drama ended its latest episode on Thursday, ominously titled “Stand Beside Me,” in the most shocking way possible, and in turn, left one of its main characters' fate dangerously up in the air. After getting into a brutal, episode-ending car accident, the fate of Rayna James (Connie Britton) -- one of the moral centers of Nashville -- is in serious limbo.

Watch: Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler Melt Our Hearts With 'Friday Night Lights' Reunion

Here’s how it all went down: Rayna’s stalker, Carl Hockney (Linds Edwards), somehow makes his way into the Highway 65 offices, holding the country superstar hostage. Pleading with him »

Though the pseudo-bottle episode ended with an incarcerated Tom recanting his story to Cyrus (as another prisoner strangled a nearby guard to death with his own damn belt), Jeff Perry is quick to remind TVLine that not everyone was privy to that admission: “He still needs to survive the legal system.

‘Music and Lyrics’: Sweet Dreams are Made of This

14 February 2017 9:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

In many ways, Marc Lawrence’s 2007 rom-com Music and Lyrics begins like a fever dream. Not only does Hugh Grant suddenly appear onscreen with a sky-reaching hairdo, he’s also singing to the camera and wearing tight trousers. »
