Hart of Dixie Review: Romeo and Juliet; Jealousy and Sleepwalking

by at . Comments

"Walkin' After Midnight" featured a central theme tonight that had everyone's storyline connected: romantic feelings. 

There was Lemon realizing she had feelings for Lavon, George confessing he still wants to be with Zoe, Annabeth fake dating Lavon in the hopes that they would end up together, George meeting a new woman, Zoe and Wade continuing to sleep together and the possibility that Lavon and Ruby will reconcile. 

Phew! That's many different romantic angles to play into in one hour - but it worked. 

Halloween in Bluebell

I'll start with Annabeth and her feelings for Lavon. I have to admit I didn't like this at all until I realized that the only reason it was being shoved down our throats was because it was the catalyst for Lemon to realize that she still had feelings for Lavon. When we see jealous Lemon that usually means that she is going to be mean and unreasonable, that wasn't the case tonight. I call that character growth.

Lemon helped Lavon see reason in lying to get votes; that isn't who he was. Though her motives may have been misguided by her feelings, the intention was pure. Lavon has always been one of my favorites because he is true to himself and what he believes in; that is what Lemon sees. I was extremely pleased when he fixed made right with his lie which in turn caused Ruby to apologize to him as well. 

Ruby also showed some major growth in the episode. In the past I have said that Ruby is going to be the reason for other characters to grow and I figured she would stay fairly static. I was wrong. Ruby apologizing to Lavon for playing dirty means one thing: this is the start of a love triangle. Lavon/Lemon/Ruby and, since Annabell likes the mayor, I guess it's now a love square with Lavon/Lemon/Ruby/Annabeth. Looks like George isn't the only man in Bluebell with a bunch of ladies swooning over him. 

We've all learned to love George for being such a gentleman and tonight he had ladies coming at him left and right. He was also Zoe's mysterious house guest and this led to some heavy scenes between them. Unfortunately, this was my least favorite part of the episode. I thought it was really ridiculous to have George sleepwalking and pretending that he and Zoe were dating just so it could come out that George still had feelings for Zoe. 

I don't need to be told that those feelings still exist, it's obvious. I did become more involved with George's character when his new love interest was introduced at the end of the episode. She's the kind of girl who will give George a run for his money and I look forward to seeing this new dynamic. 

Wade tonight made me especially happy. I really love him in a mature role and not being the jerk bartender. For the past two episodes Wade has been such a lovable guy and what Zoe deserves. My favorite scene took place when he said he was going to enforce their rules and pushed George in the water. Zoe was being hypocritical and I am very glad he confronted her about it. It needed to be done. 

Right now I want Zoe and Wade together, George can go be happy elsewhere. 

The only other thing I disliked was that Rose wasn't in another episode. I love Rose. She brings such an innocent and adorable aspect to the show that keeps it fresh. Hart of Dixie doesn't return until November 13, so I hope that she'll show up in that episode. If not, she'll definitely be in the November 20 episode because that is when McKayla Maroney will be guest starring as Rose's best friend. 

Overall tonight was a pretty decent episode, not the best of season two but it was good. I can't wait to see how the election turns out. My vote is for Mr. Lavon Hayes.

Re: Wade. There's a little box previewing the "upcoming episode" that is covering Wade's picture in your banner here. Disastrous idea. Do not cover up Wade. Have some sense!

No need to fret about George and Zoe's relationship. It makes sense just as it is. George needed to have a crush on someone who reminded him of aspects of himself that were not being realized with Lemon, so that he could finally muster the guts to break out of his many-year relationship. They were both being stifled, afraid to leave what seemed like a "perfect" life. Meanwhile, Zoe needed George as an unattainable crush to occupy her mind, so that she could resist Wade's obvious charms. Let's face it, Wade is the kind of guy you would need to protect your heart from, and Zoe has no clue of the sort of things we viewers see. We know Wade is gaga for her; she does not really grasp that yet!

Loved the scenes with George and Zoe!

After watching this episode Iam no longer on Team Zoe/Wade. I support Wade (only) and I wish that the show would bring on a new love interest for him and I don't think Team Wade would object. I think people are invested in his happiness. At this point I don't care what happiness to Zoe and her clueless self.

Iam overdosing in Zoe's romantic life already and it's only episode 5 and now we're talking about a new love interest for her. The show needs balance even Gossip Girl knew that. G could have been occupied with work trying to deal with his feeling for Z instead of mindlessly running around dating.

LG has her moments, but she loves this triangle. :) And they are slowly showing more of a connection between ZW. It makes sense for their relationship to start as a sexual one. That was always the stronger pull between them. If they came right out and started admitting feelings that would be OOC and not believable (see OTT sappy speech in premiere from G). We are only 5 episodes in. And the writing aside from this past episode has drastically improved for me and I'm finding myself actually liking a lot of the show. I think the focus this season is on the relationships both romantic and friendships which is why we might not be seeing as much of the career stuff. I do hope that changes as the season goes on.

I don't know that much about Lelia but from what I shave seen she is not very GOOD at her job...the show is out of control. She should have put a stop to the (joke) of a love triangle until she build up a stronger audience. Z could not be with both ofthose guys. The scenes between W/Z are all about sex...what happened to the cute scenes (last season) G is acting like a lady in wait...doesn't he work anymore? Where is SHELLY!

If you have the season 1 DVD's LG does an interview on it where she talks about the cast members. When she gets to talking about Wilson Bethel as I said early she said that as soon as he became Wade they changed it so that Wade would become a bigger part of Zoe's life. And then she also says that after the heatwave episode aired that they noticed people really becoming invested in Zoe and Wade's story. The writers aren't stupid although it may seem like it at times. They know which couple is more popular and they don't want their show cancelled. Now that doesn't mean they won't continue to try GZ at some point. And if it ever seemed like most fans would buy it they may shift to them, but I don't see it happening. The fans love ZW & Wade in particular. And they have new writers this season so that may change things.
