The second season of “Nashville” will soon experience even more sorrow.

That’s because the show will see one of its main characters meet his/her maker, according to E! News. According to the site, the death will show up soon, marking the third death in less than a year. Jolene (Sylvia Jeffries) and Dante (Jay Hernandez) were killed off in a murder-suicide in the show’s season finale in May.

The site did narrow down the list of potential corpses (slightly), writing that it will be one of these people…

Rayna (Connie Britton)
Scarlett (Clare Bowen)
Juliette (Hayden Panettiere)
Teddy (Eric Close)
Deacon (Charles Esten)
Gunnar (Sam Palladio)
Tandy (Judith Hoag)
Lamar (Powers Boothe)
Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley)
Will (Chris Carmack)
Avery (Jonathan Jackson)

While the story spells bad news for one character, the good news is that the show has developed some ratings momentum, recently delivering over 5 million people to the ABC series.
