"If the part about my dad wasn't true, what is the truth, if any, that I need to learn about my mom?" executive producer John Eisendrath says of Liz's mindset this year. In other news, there will be a small time jump when the show returns, but Berlin will still very much be in the picture as the main villain in the "first portion of the year," Eisendrath adds.

Is it fall yet? I need to know what happens between Rayna and Deacon on Nashville! — Michelle
ADAM:
They'll make it out of their finale car accident with only bumps and bruises, but the emotional injuries will be far more serious. "They are never going to have [a] smooth-sailing relationship," creator Callie Khouri tells us, pointing to Deacon's discovery that he's Maddie's father. "[Season 2] is not going to look like Father Knows Best. I don't think Deacon ever thought of himself as father material. We'll see him grapple with... whether or not he's right." Worse, given Deacon's dangerous bender, Rayna will feel even more justified in her decision to lie. "She was kind of right not to tell him," Khouri says. "He couldn't handle it."
