Question: After finishing Saturday's season finale of Orphan Black, many thoughts come to mind, but the most obvious is that if Tatiana Maslany doesn't walk away with the Emmy for best actress — or is it five nominations in the best supporting actress category? — then the people who vote just aren't watching TV.

Nashville hunk Deacon Claybourne is about to be hit with the biggest bombshell of his life: Maddie is his daughter.
Just as Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) finally got back together, Rayna's daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) found documents last week proving that Deacon, not Teddy (Eric Close), is her biological father. On Wednesday's finale (10/9c, ABC), Maddie shows up at Deacon's door with the news. How does Deacon react? As expected, not so well.
