Iam sick of both Zoey and George and for all I care they can move to NY - they do nothing but hurt people. I don't understand why Zoey didn't tell Wade George was at the door after all she just slept with Wade or why she had the need to brag about having 2 boyfriends- one she stole for another woman. Lemon is hurting and all Zoey could talk about was how HER life was messed up. Your are RIGHT as long was Lalia is writing the episodes George will never be like but he never takes responsibility for his action. Wade to the moon and back.
@T "Truthfully, I like George. I think he has great potential to be a complex character. But not with these writers." Exactly... and to add to that I'd say in any small town (even fictional ones), a love triangle eventually gets boring and ridiculous so the writers need to start stepping it up (yes, already!).
"George never is the one dealing with the consequences of his actions, never learns, never grows. No matter how flawed they write him, they never seem to realize that he has flaws." I'd definitely agree with that - they're so side tracked with the plan that George has to be viewed as "the one" for Zoe - HE was the guy Zoe first met - HE IS HER SOUL MATE VIEWERS!! ...did you not see the CW promotional images of Zoe and George that read "soul mates aren't always attached" ?! ...and now this season Zoe's on the truck WITH George whilst Wade has been horribly photoshopped and kicked off to the side of the season 2 promo shots :D LOL. ...sorry.
I did find it rather...well, totally expected, actually, that the entire town was cleaning up the mess of the storm/wedding, Magnolia was dealing with the gifts, Brick - aborted attempt at a date aside - was trying to make sure Lemon was OK, Lemon was trying to figure out the rest of her life. And George's only concern was why his dream girl (this week) wasn't leaping into his arms fast enough. And yet, people were still putting the blame on Zoe, Lemon, even Wade. George can do no wrong.
Truthfully, I like George. I think he has great potential to be a complex character. But not with these writers. Because, while they seem to recognize that the town's perceptions of Zoe as a she-devil outsider and Wade as a good-for-nothing bad boy are inaccurate, they have bought the Golden Boy hook, line and sinker. George never is the one dealing with the consequences of his actions, never learns, never grows. No matter how flawed they write him, they never seem to realize that he has flaws.
George was an ENGAGED man he had not business running around with Zoey. How would you like it if your husband ran around with another woman? He should have been giving that attention to Lemon and not obessing after other woman. He is a CHEATER. What bothers me the most is that they wasted over the whole MESS. Zoey and George were both wrong but Lemon was the only one hurting. Don't want to hear about the affair because George was obessing over Zoey before he find out about the affair. I guess he welcome the news about the affair because as Lalia put it he is Zoey soulmate (lol) but first they had to get rid of poor Lemon.
Yeah, I didn't like how that episode played out. George and Zoey were the cause of this MESS but yet they walk away untouched. George didn't have the decency or respect to ask Lemon if she was okay... she was hurting and embarrassed but all he cared about was his obession with Zoey...it bothers me how he has ignored Lemon and done so since Zoey came to that town. To top it off , Wade was accused of sleeping with Lemon...he had nothing to do with that wedding MESS. Why was Zoey bragging about having 2 boyfriends when she WAS part to blame for this MESS?
Love you Wade and we all know you love Zoey.
Love, Love Wade/Bethel VERY talented. Iam with him no matter what! I hate the way they showed him last night - but I guess it was to take the heat off of George and Zoey and their behavior (cheating). Yeah Saint George cheated.
Iam Wade with/without Zoey. Bethel is the most interesting character on that show. I think characters are being altered for Porter/George benefit
Yes, Lalia he is still the most boring character on that show - he was miscasted for the part. T.. they should have deal more with Goerge and Zoey inappropriate behavior but I think they used Wade's immature behavior as a means out.
I like Wade/Bethel but, I don't always like the way he is depicted. I think alot of this has to do with Porter - he is still struggling with that role and it shows. It's season 2 and he is still boring/uneventful. I don't think Leila wants Wade/Bethel to have any more leverage over Porter then what he aleeady has. Wade/Bethel is too likeable and keeping him immature leave the door open for Porter/George and Bilson/Zoey. I think Lalie is gointg to screw her own show. Sorry but Porter does not have it here no matter how much he tries. Bethel is the most interesting charactr on that show and when you destroy him the show is over. A love triangle is only as good as it's players - Porter is simply no completion. Outside of Wade and Zoey there is nothing to the show- the other characters are just there.
@Don't be fooled. So because Wade's experienced at physical relationships, he's therefore experienced at actual love and adult commitment? Having "chased around" girls is not the same thing as putting it all on the line when the person you have feelings for just found out the person she's been obsessing over for months called off his wedding for her. On top of that, Zoe lied to Wade about it after supposedly "making a connection" with him hours before. As many people have noted, very few people, not even Zoe, misunderstood his immature motivations behind his response. Yes, viewers are frustrated, but I don't think anyone's fooled regarding Wade.
Apparently many people ARE still fooled by Perfect Nice Guy George and Evil Selfish Lemon, though...
@Elle: I get what you're saying with this: "Also Leila writing in Lemon just being so quickly okay with George and Zoe moving on together - it would never happen but by doing so she's giving the audience the okay to now cheer George on just as much as Wade." I'm not entirely sure I agree, though. I think it IS a conveniently quick way of getting rid of both townspeople and audience objection to G/Z and vilifying of Zoe (because OF COURSE it's that harlot's fault, right? The poor guy is never to blame in these situations.) At the same time, I actually do think that Lemon had reached her limit by this point and just wanted to be done with the whole thing. It wasn't like she was jumping with joy at the prospect of them being together; she was just trying to move on.
George and Lemon never bounced back.
I love Ruby's character, we need someone to spice up little Bluebell I would love to see her and Lavon
As for all the bickering about Wade being written down, I completely disagree. Don't be fooled ladies, Wade has done more than his fair share of chasing around. I think that he had a real chance and he blew it. So what? That George entered the picture? Wade had the whole night before, but nooooooo, not one word. I think that if Wade can't say his feelings then he deserve Zoe.
As for George, I've always liked him from the start, and let's be honest, he relates to Zoe much more than Wade. I honestly don't care who Zoe ends up with because as long as she's happy, but I think that in the end George and Zoe will be together.
And so much for judging his actions on ditching Lemon.......Lemon only tried her hardest at the relationship only because she wanted what she wants, she's always been selfish, not once had she thought about George, all about her feelings and her thoughts and how she didn't want to move to New York....blah blah blah, after the Lavon thing, she just never bounced ba
Oh, man! Stephanie Savage is trying to turn George and Zoe into Chair, and Wade into Dair leftovers. Oh, my, that is Steph Savage for you!
(continued..) She's done exactly what she wanted to do with her show but in the process really forced Wade's character (who has always been great) into a corner of no longer as likeable. Can't stand that she did that... all for her desire to continue on the love triangle path. :/
@T "Also have to disagree about "changing the tone" to funnier and lighter. First of all, that's nothing new, and secondly, I think they'd be much better off finding a balance" ...I completely agree with you on that T.
I think it's clear that the writer and producer of the episode, Leila, got what she wanted since season one and that's a far more balanced love triangle (god help us... please cease the love triangle for good - are steady relationships not hilarious and sexy in their own right?!). Wade was clearly made into a heavily immature character this past episode and you can see the younger audience members quickly side with the good guy George instead of questioning whether leaving your fiance on the day of your wedding is truly a "grand gesture". Also Leila writing in Lemon just being so quickly okay with George and Zoe moving on together - it would never happen but by doing so she's giving the audience the okay to now cheer George on just as much as Wade. She's done exactly
Zoe and George need to be together! I'm hoping we'll get to see something happen between Wade and Lemon since they'll be working together now. That would be a great couple that actually challenges each other. Zoe and Wade don't seem to have a likely future together. Zoe and George are a more realistic endgame, they can move to New York and live happily ever after :)haha
she tried everything in her power to make up for her mistakes and he moves on to the next woman without giving a sh.. what that might do to lemon. How is having no decency charming and adoreable?
I love, love wade being the one calling the terms now. What began as shields up got him back in the saddle. And now that he realized that he´s not just the doctor´s entertaining device he´s enjoying that a little (too much) by playing around. Can´t blame him for that. though giving him credit for pushing zoe to a decision seems a little over the top.
Lemon, go bite ruby´s head off when you´re back on your feet. No cool kicking someone who´s already down. I instantly hated her character for that.
I hope zoe let´s go of her controlfreak issue and enjoys the ride with wade already. Because let´s be honest the only thing interesting about george tucker is being a save bet for marriage material. Other than that I think crazy earl would give a very funny wedding speech and seriously would you ever choose the tuckers for inlaws?
Well and then there´s george... yea umm.... really? Just NO! The guy ditched his fiance, they had a relationship for 15 years, on their wedding after sh
Anyone who can't see right through Wade's tough guy "I'm God's gift" act is completely clueless. He's been burned before by Zoe and now that George is back in the picture, OF COURSE he'd be put off and switch gears because he doesn't think he has a chance against George in Zoe's eyes. Even Zoe sees through his defense mechanism which is why she kept pushing the issue.
George actively pursuing a relationship with Zoe the same night he called off his wedding is just ridiculous! The fact that he said it was all for her would have been more believable if the whole Lemon-Lavon thing had stayed a secret but we all know that is what catapulted everything. I like George but he doesn't know what the hell he wants in my opinion and Zoe's right--he needs time to find out who he is on his own!
Wade was a jerk, insulting Zoe on her sex sills,once again having the chance to be with her/tell her how he really feels but blowing it.He thinks hes gods gift to women but he's not.Zoe needs to realize choosing neither guy means NOT hopping back in the sack with one of em,she's just biding her time with Wade til George is ready.I want Zoe/George.I loved Lemon/her sl this episode, her becoming independent.
Wow, what a great episode. I think I am now officially a George/Zoe fan! Also, Levon was wonderful as usual!
I just had this feeling the entire episode that at the end, Zoe and Wade would end up in bed together again. George was so clearly on the rebound, it wasn't funny. He wanted to just plow straight ahead into another relationship the day after he left his bride at the alter basically. He's got some issues. Thank GOD Zoe saw that finally! Wade - I think he just thinks that he isn't the guy that any girl like Zoe would ever choose, so he doesn't even try. He doesn't think he's 'good enough'. When we all know he does want to be with her. Hopefully he starts acting a bit more mature about it though. He may think it's funny....but it's just going to start getting to be plain mean.
I still want Annabeth and Lavon to date!
PREVIOUS night - was obnoxious and self-centered. Charming and adorable? Give me a break. If any character on this show needs to grow up and get over himself, it's George.
I don't like Ruby at all. Can't wait until she's gone.
I loved Lemon last night (as I have nearly every episode since sometime mid-season 1). Can't wait to see her working at the Rammer Jammer.
Also have to disagree about "changing the tone" to funnier and lighter. First of all, that's nothing new, and secondly, I think they'd be much better off finding a balance.
Despite some of my complaining comments here, this was a fantastic episode. I'm so happy to have returned to Bluebell.
Yes, Wade acted frustratingly immature, but in the most obvious way possible. His defense mechanisms were on clear display. In fact, in a way, I'd almost argue that at some basic level, he was being more mature about things than anyone else. He backed off and while not being honest about what HE wanted, he did push Zoe towards making a decision about what SHE wanted (or what he thought she wanted).
I am not at all sure how I feel about their friends-with-benefits relationship, but I think it has potential for both good and bad.
George didn't care about anyone's feelings but his own, or the fact that anyone else will have to deal with the repercussions of his actions. The way he shifted gears so fast after Brick left the office was so telling. Every single time I want to like him (bringing beer over to Wade's, for example), he just shoots himself in the foot again. His sense of entitlement about Zoe - that she should just gratefully be with him since he dumped his fiancee the prev
