Nashville tricked its viewers into thinking their whole TV world wasn't about to come crashing down. Leading lady Rayna James (Connie Britton) was faced with two brushes of death during the Feb. 16 episode of the country drama. After surviving a scary encounter with her knife-wielding stalker, Rayna was being safely escorted out of harm's way — only to have her police car get struck by a truck on her way home to Deacon (Charles Esten) and her waiting daughters. The CMT series (formerly of ABC) used the familiar TV trope of death by car crash to ultimately send off its star in a blaze of glory. After allowing its viewers to let out a sigh of relief — again — as she seemed to be recovering in the hospital, Rayna ultimately died of complications from the injuries she suffered in the crash in the following episode. One week later, Nashville will now be dealing with the all-encompassing reverberations of Rayna's death, as the surrounding characters will be … [Read more...] about TV’s Most Memorable Deaths by Car Crash: An Ode to ‘Nashville’s’ Rayna James
