Nashville killed off Connie Britton’s much-loved country star character Rayna Jaymes in last night’s episode of the CMT drama – and viewers are not happy.
After the February 23 episode of the show saw Rayna shockingly die after slipping into a coma, “angry” fans took to social media to lash out at the series of the major character death, slamming Connie for quitting Nashville and letting Rayna die after fans campaigned to have the show return.
A number of Nashville viewers slammed the CMT show and Britton, who’s portrayed Jaymes since the show first began in 2012, on Twitter, putting both Connie and the series on serious blast after they campaigned hard to have the series brought back to life after ABC initially canceled the country music drama last year.
“Really angry such BS,” Twitter user @gillibugz tweeted out following Rayna’s shocking death in the most recent episode of Nashville, titled “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” “We save Nashville only for Rayna to die! #speechless. What about Deacon? You killed love CMT.”
“What a shock, I’m so angry I don’t think I can watch Nashville anymore,” @DubogueSherry tweeted out to Connie after seeing Jaymes die, while @ChrissyYandolli wrote on the social media site of Rayna’s death following Nashville’s reprise, “Ugh are you kidding me!!!!! Now I’m angry the show even came back….. #nashvillecmt.”
