"Hurricane" - 5/10
Absolute worst episode of the show. I only gave it the four out of ten because the Deyna plots in it were a tiny bit interesting, but not great. The recurring Gene jokes were funny. The Scunnar plot destroyed the couple, again, and then to not include the colead of the show is just downright awful. I miss the old Nashville. Please come back to us. Nashville was a chore to watch this week. Lagging and slow plots, no interesting characters, no co-lead, this episode was very bad. Clearly the new writers do not know how to write a ensemble show. I'm not saying everyone has to be in it for a long time, just make it where the characters are all in it, and some just have shorter and fewer scenes. When characters miss episodes, and then don't have a plot for five episodes, it destroys the serial element. I hope things get better next week. This episode really made me sad, as the show was supposed to be so good. I have no idea what will happen to the ratings after tonight's "hurricane."
