“Some of my favorite scenes from season 3 so far happened back in episode 2. Actually it is thnormal_nsh302_0568ree scenes, with Deacon and Maddie, three times for Deacon to practice his parenting skills…

Teenagers can be extremely annoying! Maddie sure is when going furniture shopping with Deacon. Does she or does she not want a dresser?!? I just love Maddie in this scene. My own teenager I don’t always get, but Maddie’s behavior is just crystal clear to me. Mad, and confused and lost, and Lennon portrays it perfectly! And I get you, Deacon, patience and understanding would probably not have worked anyway, so that sarcastic hand-waving was as good a reaction as any.

Another Deacon/Maddie Fan Favorite Season 3 Moment

Sometime you spit things out a way that you shouldn’t! The dresser squabbling turning into accusations, and then the crescendo leading to Deacon shouting it out, how he proposed to Rayna. The change of pace and tone in that scene, I get breathless. Deacon is Deacon getting all worked up, and just cannot not say anything of course, and Maddie is looking so devastated at the end! It is just such intense one-minute drama!

What is done is done and the scene when Maddie comes out of bathroom… They are both so sad, and it hurts to watch them, but I think they needed this. They comfort each other. And the scene comforts me! Even if Deacon does not have Rayna, he has THIS now, his daughter.


It is funny, it is real, it is poignant and it is heartbreaking! I can re-watch endless number of times! …and Deacon, you got this!”
