If you were wondering where Avery and his precious baby girl, Cadence, had wandered off to, then wonder no more!
After leaving Juliette, Avery has decided to take his daughter all the way back to Ohio, putting a definite strain on their little family's relationship. We'll get to see the two of them talk it out in Nashville Season 4 Episode 2, after another post-partum breakdown brings Avery back to check on her.
Elsewhere, Luke tries to do damage control on Will's public image by hiring a professional image consultant, and Rayna attempts to land a big time rock artist for Highway 65.
Check out these all new photos from "Til the Pain Outwears the Shame" airing Wednesday, September 30th at 10/9c.

Barnes Family Photo - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
Pictured here we see, mommy, daddy, baby, and a whole lot of resentment to go around. After Avery's departure with Cadence, and Juliette's decision to run away from all of her post-partum problems, it's easy to see how these three might not make such a happy family anymore.
Avery Visits Juliette - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
After Juliette breaks down during an appearance on "Live with Kelly and Michael," Avery reaches out to make sure she's okay. He even brings Cadence along. A pretty brave move, considering Juliette nearly beaned the both of them with a snow globe in the season finale.
Partaaaay - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
Is it just us, or is this NOT a great place to bring a baby? With Juliette's career on the move, she seems to be enjoying all life can give her, and that means partying it up. Unfortunately, it's hard to raise a kid between drunken dancing and make-out sessions, so we don't imagine Avery and Cadence will stay for long.
Daddy Avery - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
One of our top requests for the upcoming season of Nashville was a great big serving of Daddy Avery, and it looks like Season 4 is going to deliver! We still hope Avery will have time to make awesome music, but who can resist a rockstar who's also an amazing father to his baby girl?
Luke & Will - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
With Will's big sexuality secret finally out to the media – so proud of this guy! – it's time for him and Luke to sit down and have a talk about what their next move will be. As the head of his own label, Luke not only has to worry about protecting his own brand, but also the brands of all the other artists he's signed.
Will Lexington - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
We all breathed a sigh of relief (that sounded a lot like 'finally!') when Will came out to the media last year. But now, as Season 4 of Nashville picks back up, he might be reevaluating if that was such a great idea. It's not easy to market a gay cowboy country star, who has previously relied heavily on his sex appeal.
Enter Gabrielle - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
Gabrielle, a smart, savy, and seductive image consultant is just the person to help Will and Luke with their little conundrum. We hear that though she'll be butting heads with Luke about Will's potential future, she might still be a new love interest for the unlucky-in-love label head.
Artists at Odds - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
We hope Luke manages to find a way to make Will appealing to his audience again because it's never fun to see these two bro's at odds. Luke has a responsibility to his new label, but he also has a responsibility to fight for his artists in every way he can. Make it work boys!
Singing Sisters - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
It looks like another duet from Maddie and Daphne (aka the wildly talented Lennon and Maisy) is on the way! Let's just hope it's not a forelorn song about losing their step-dad-to-be, Deacon. We still haven't spotted him in any of these photos – very sneaky Nashville – and it's stressing us out!
Rayna and Her Girls - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
If only Deacon was included in this shot, it would be a perfect family photo. As Rayna and the girls recover from whatever the outcome of Deacon and Beverly's surgeries are, at least we know they're still playing music. Show of hands, who wants to hear a medley by these three lovely ladies?
Maddie - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
Uh oh, Maddie isn't looking too happy here. Is she glum because her biological father bit the dust, or because her adoptive father, Teddy, has gone off to prison for his crimes as mayor? Maybe it's none of the above, and she's still sour that Rayna won't let her sign with a label and become country music's next rising star!
Rayna on a Plane - Nashville Season 4 Episode 2
Rayna James certainly knows how to fly in style. But where is she heading? L.A to meet up with Luke and Juliette and probably have it out over her broken contract? Or perhaps to woo rock artist, Markus Keen, to Highway 65? Either way, we hope at the end of the day she flies right back to Deacon, who is alive and well (shut up, we just want him to be okay!).
