I haven't watched Nashville since season 3. But I tuned in to see what happens to Rayna and whether or not I'd jump back in to see where it goes. This episode hit Really close to home. My mother was involved in a car collision. Shattered pelvic bone and broken back. We didn't know this at the time of finding out. We were told she was hit and awake and okay. That she was talking and fine. That she was in the ER waiting. So we decided not to go to the hospital at that moment. Which later, I do regret doing. Because maybe we would have been able to say goodbye... What if! But in the moment, the shock and news really just messes with your head and your decision making process. An hour later, she was in critical condition and bleeding. And they couldn't stop it. My grandmother had to call it. So for me, I was crying like a baby during this. And from my point of view, I thought it was close to authentic.
Guess what? People deal with things differently. It's not a black and white situation. People react differently to these types of situations. Sometimes it doesn't make sense. Sometimes it's the wrong choice but a choice nonetheless and no one should be ridiculed or judged for it. We can't predict how things are going to play out. In the end, all of them were there to see her last moment.
