This ep was much better than recent ones, if only because something finally happened. However, I still feel like Z's a secondary character on the L/G/L Show. W barely rates as a guest star these days, so it's nice to see him get some development. While I agree that his outburst says more about his own sense of self, and probably his relationship with his brother, I can see where he's coming from. Whether that's because of the whiplash characterization the writers have forced on Z (she wants him! she doesn't! they're friends! they're enemies! she'll get a drink with him after xmas! she's pining after G!) or a misperception of her behavior, that is how he sees her choices. I think his feelings are realistic, if not truly fair and delivered rather cruelly.
I still can't get behind G's reactions and behavior towards L, though. So she failed to tell him something she herself was in denial over. Something that happened when he essentially abandoned her while stringing her along. Yet he fails to acknowledge his own emotional affair with Z and his own reluctance to fully commit to L. Takes two to tango, G.
This episode was great. There were tons of relationship developments, which is especially wonderful for a show like HoD where almost nothing happens, ever, that doesn't have to do with the town being oh so quirky. I think everybody's reactions to everything were more or less perfect. On a slightly different note; everyone who says Wade doesn't have a right to be angry because he never really asked Zoe out is completely wrong. At the end of the Christmas episode, he very seriously asked her to go out for a drink and she turned him down. He didn't seem upset at that time, but he clearly has been pining for her for a while and she really doesn't take him as seriously as she should. And how can she be turning him down? The man is built like a Greek god.
Well I think Wade was completly right telling zoe off. I mean she treated him like garbage most of the time and he stuck around, and suddenly she decides well maybe he is a nice guy but sorry no boyfriend material because heÂ´s just the town-drunkÂ´s barkeeper son.
Besides his brother clearly is a douche. Giving their dad a car because he needs one.
I like how the show achieves to dive into all the characters. I really hope there will be a second season to explore them further.
That was the most half wit 0-30 minutes on tv this year .....Strike 2 UNwatchable !! Glad I DVRed and able to FF most of that junk . Magnolia has no reason for being ... Zoe is a bigger loser in love every week. Week to week !!!
@lilau : i had the same thought when I saw Lemon and Wade together on that episode. They're definately opposites, but then she was able to have fun with him...
I agree that Wade never really asked Zoe out. The reason why I am not team Wade is because he was always an immature jackass around her. He always seemed more interested in playing pranks on her than seriously be with her. At least George was able to show Zoe that he appreciated and trusted her. Looking at the promos for next week, seems like he'll be able to forgive her. So basically I have to be team George because Wade is acting like a child. yes, they have got chemistry, but their relationship is superficial. She doesn't confide in him like she does George.
You know what else I liked about this episode? Annabeth. I like how much backbone she's grown. I also like how Lemon and Zoe bond. It's so weird, but I think Zoe is Lemon's best friend. She's the only one to stand up to her and subsequently the only person Lemon opens up to and tells the real story.
That preview were George and Zoe are on the verge of kissing - I think Zoe's going to say no because she's betraying Lemon. Also George thinks scoring with Zoe would be the thing that would hurt Lemon the most. Zoe's not going to let him use her like that. Is she? I hope not.
Am I the only one who wanted Jesse to say "challenge accepted" when Wade dared him to come back to Bluebell to take care of Crazy Earl? I really liked that character and I want him to come back. A lot. I love how he lit a fire under Wade and gave Zoe something to do besides moon over George. I liked how he helped Zoe find the hunting party. I liked Wade having a reason for staying in Bluebell other than lack of ambition. He stayed to take care of his dad when he was clearly capable of so much more. That back story helps me see him as less Peter Pan and more grown up making the best of a bad situation. We hadn't seen that before.
Also, Jesse's easy on the eyes. Just sayin'.
I really love the ep when Wade and Lemon team up together... I like them together more than Zoe and Wade and Georges and Lemon
Leanne - but Zoe was drunk when she hooked up with Wade. I think he probably thinks it doesn't count. I understand his anger....but he's never just come out and asked her out on a date. Zoe is also in denial about her chemistry with Wade. She sees George as this golden boy, good guy.
In the previews for next week she runs off after him to New Orleans and they apparently kiss. That's all fine and dandy but you have to see this as total rebound for him. So soon after he breaks it off with his fiance. Not very stable.
I'm team Wade all the way and I have a feeling he and Zoe will come back around to each other.
