“Nashville” Season 3 is about to get awkward. In the last episode, Luke (Will Chase) refused to let Deacon (Charles Esten) out of his contract, and now Deacon is heading out on the road with his ex-girlfriend and her new fiancé -- and he isn't the only one throwing himself a pity party. As if that situation wasn’t tense enough, Deacon is about to get a new love interest, according to the synopsis for episode 3, titled “I Feel Sorry For Me.”
Deacon will not be happy about being in Luke’s band in episode 3. Luke might think it’s just business, but Deacon will have trouble separating his boss from the man who stole Rayna (Connie Britton). Luke’s “assertive and sultry” backup singer Pam (Brette Taylor) will show an interest in Deacon, but his bad attitude will make it hard for anyone to be friends with him.
Meanwhile, Rayna will be getting friendly with Sadie Stone (Laura Benanti). In episode 2, Jeff (Oliver Hudson) made it clear that he wanted to sign Sadie when her contract with her current label was up. It appears that Rayna wants the same thing, but she might be a little better at bonding with the rising star. She’ll take Sadie out for a girls’ day, but Sadie might not be ready to make a decision just yet.
Zoe decided to move in with Gunnar last week, despite worrying about his relationship with Scarlett. Zoe’s concerns about Scarlett and Gunnar are only going to get worse. She’ll witness some “odd behavior” which will bring out her jealousy in full force. She’ll try to fix things, but her plan won’t work. She may have decided to move in with Gunnar a little too soon.
Juliette is still hiding her pregnancy, but she won’t be able to keep that secret much longer. She’ll have “stomach pains and mood swings,” according to the synopsis for episode 3, and those will force her to tell some people about her condition. However, she might not tell Avery yet. He has been drowning his sorrows in alcohol for the past two episodes, and that will continue in episode 3. Juliette is also going to be busy with actor Noah West (Derek Hough), and it looks like things are going to get steamy.

The most concerning spoiler from the episode 3 synopsis involves Rayna’s ex-husband Teddy (Eric Close), and their kids Daphne (Maisy Stella) and Maddie (Lennon Stella): “Jeff has ulterior motives as he pursues Teddy and the girls.” Why exactly would the conniving record label executive go after Rayna's family?
“Nashville” Season 3 episode 3 will air Wednesday, Oct. 8, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC. What do you think Jeff is doing with Rayna’s family? Sound off in the comments section below!
