Teddy Conrad (Eric Close), Nashville
Teddy's story line adds a layer of political drama to Nashville, but his shady back-room deals and power-hungry conspiracies feel out of place on a show that's otherwise about the rivalries and love lives among a group of musicians in Music City. Now that he and Rayna have finally decided to get divorced, it's the perfect opportunity for him to exit the show gracefully.
