When “Nashville” returns on Wednesday, Jan. 15, we’ll have to say goodbye to one of two characters: Crazy Peggy or Will Lexington. In the fall finale of the ABC southern soap, Peggy was hit by a bullet meant for her new husband Teddy, while Will contemplated suicide for being deeply closeted in the country music industry.
While we have our preference over who should survive the events of the fall finale, the network just released the official synopsis for midseason premiere episode, “I’ll Keep Climbing” … and it doesn’t tell us much about who will live to see another episode. Read the full synopsis here:
“In the aftermath of the death of someone in their circle, lives are changed forever in the world of ‘Nashville,’ and a new mystery arises. Kelly Clarkson guest stars as herself and makes Gunnar and Scarlett a once-in-a-lifetime offer. Juliette’s reputation takes another body blow as creative video editing seems to show her proclaiming there is no God, further fueling her detractors. Rayna’s bought herself out of Edgehill, but the the pressure to succeed is greater than ever, and Deacon struggles to write during his sobriety and relative stability and finds help from Maddie and Daphne.”
What do you think the new mystery is? Will Clarkson be a factor in Gunnar and Scarlett’s inevitable romantic reunion? (You know it’s going to happen.) Will Crazy Peggy or Will die?
“Nashville” returns Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
