Nashville is one of the best new shows of the year, with intrigue, betrayal, politics, singing, sex, and Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere making faces at each other. It is pure dramatic fun, and Hayden Panettiere is especially amazing on the show—she better be nominated for an Emmy!

OK! Exclusive: Nashville stars Lennon and Maisy Stella dish about tonight's finale!

Hayden plays a bad girl, but a lot of terrible things have happened to her to make her that way. In fact, Nashville has been totally relentless to her character. A few examples:

1. She was forced to go on tour with an old person (that would be Connie Britton, whom we all worship, to be fair).

2. Her estranged drug-addicted mother came back into her life.

3. She was video-taped shoplifting and it went viral.

4. She got engaged, and then left the person at the altar.

6. Her manager stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her.

7. She was extorted for even more money after her manager revealed he had a sex tape of her (with her).

8. Her mother shot her manager.

9. Her mother ODed and died.

10. Over the first season, she slept with her manager, her rival's ex-boyfriend, a major-league virgin (Tim Tebow-esque), and a roadie (the previews suggest she wore Avery down, no?). Not slut-shaming, just showing that this gal only chooses bedmates with some high drama attached.

Why is this show so cruel to Hayden? Do you think she does a remarkable job of making the character likeable? What do you think is going to happen on tonight's finale? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
