Nashville season 2 looks to be a one of changes. Rayna and Deacon finally reignited their passionate romance to have the long held secret about Maddie's paternity come out to destroy it entirely. That revelation will propel both of them in new directions.

After surviving the car crash, Rayna and Deacon will have to confront the truth. Callie Khouri told TV Guide that his drinking relapse helps Rayna justify her initial decision to keep the truth from him. "She was kind of right not to tell him," Khouri said. "He couldn't handle it."

Will Deacon be a good father? Khouri said, "It's 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." Though, the father and daughter will be drawn together through music.

Maddie will have a larger role in the second season along with her sister. The real-life sisters, Lennon and Maisy Stella, have been made series regulars according to THR. In addition, Chris Carmack, who plays Scarlett and Gunnar's neighbor, Will, has also been upped to a series regular.

Romantic entanglements will continue to be a major theme on Nashville. Will's struggle between his desire to be a country singer, while secretly being gay will not going away. Khouri explained, "Ultimately Rayna is going to have a working relationship with him and it's wrought with all the complications that the audience is aware of and Rayna is not."

Two new characters will be making moves on Rayna and Deacon. When she has concerns about the release of her new album, the new head of her record label wants to start a personal relationship. Meanwhile, Deacon contemplates suing Rayna and his lawyer has her eyes on him.

From the looks of it, Nashville's season 2 is going to be even more intense than the first. Love, romance, music, business, and secrets are an explosive combination!

Nashville returns this Fall to ABC.
