Last night, on the season 4 and series finale of "Nashville," fans were left disappointed with unresolved plots with an episode titled, "Maybe You'll Appreciate Me Someday." The show leaves a bittersweet legacy behind of amazing potential and immense talent that was sometimes squandered by poor writing. The episode did what "Nashville" has come to do best, temporarily resolve a plot without definitively giving any absolute resolution. The episode ended with a frustrating and potentially deadly cliffhanger that, unless another network picks up the show, will never get the resolution that fans, who have spent four years watching the series, deserve.

Juliette's plane goes missing

At the red carpet and up for an Oscar for her role as Patsy Cline, Juliette is stressed about the event.

She doesn't win and, when Avery is waiting for her plane to land, an airport employee instructs him to come inside because there was a distress call and they've lost contact with the plane 90 miles outside of Nashville, the exact distance from the city as Patsy Cline's plane was when it crashed in the city of Camden, Tennessee. The series ends on the cliffhanger, a cruel utility usually resolved the next episode or season but, with Nashville unceremoniously cancelled recently, the plot may be left dangling forever.
