This was an exciting season finale, in more ways than one. A lot happened but I want to focus on Juliette in this episode. I’ve never made a secret of how much I love Hayden Panettiere in this role. There are moments when her spoiled, self-righteous behavior gets on my nerves. But there are also times when her willingness to love and learn make me want to understand her and give her as many more chances as she needs to become a better person. In “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive,” we see some of the people Juliette’s mistreated along the way come back into her life and offer what she needs the most - their love. Her ex-manager Glenn shows up when we least expect it. Deacon tries to be there for Juliette, although she pushes him away at first. Avery is there when she needs a friend (he’s making strides, but he’s still not fully redeemed. I’m not sure he ever can be for me). Even Rayna is there for Juliette.
