Soap Opera Spoilers
Droves of Nashville fans have taken to the internet to vent their frustration with the character of Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen), the country girl who has been gifted with a record deal and seems to hate every second of her success! Is Deacon Claybourne's (Chip Esten) neurotic niece intended to be the new love-to-hate character, now that Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) has seemingly transformed from villainess to a heroine? Showrunner Dee Johnson says no!
“I think we were trying to show the different journeys one takes when one is first trying to have a musical career," explains Johnson. "In our minds, Scarlett was always an artist, a relatively skinless person, and how does that person handle the stress of being out there all the time? It takes a toll and we wanted to show that side of the journey.” READ MORE

Henry Czerny is well-versed in the art of Revenge. As patriarch of the dysfunctional Grayson clan on the hit ABC sudser, the formally-trained Canadian actor gives just as good as he gets, when Conrad faces off against malevolent wife Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and/or diabolical daughter-in-law Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp).
I recently caught up with Czerny at TCA. He shared how the Graysons will continue to contend with Emily, now that she's under their roof. He also offers insight into Conrad's goals for his children and reveals which self-help guru he hopes his character eventually takes after.
Daytime Confidential: It seems like the Graysons have Emily where they want her. Now that she is in their house and has lied for them that Lydia shot her, how else are they going to torture her?
Henry Czerny: By living. The Graysons are going to torture Emily by somehow continuing on with their lives as despicable and dysfunctional as they are. That’s what’s going to continue. Emily’s going to get out of some stuff and get into some stuff, as one does when one goes for revenge. At the very beginning, Mike Kelley put on his description for the series for the first episode a Confucios saying, "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." In our pursuit of something we believe should happen, we have to get dirty in a way that the other people against us got dirty. READ MORE
