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.

Wade and Zoe had a great chemestry!! Sorry for George but looks forced. The relationship betwen wade and zoe looks natural and real

This crap of a love triangle is going to be the END of this show. The show needs to cast a new (long time) love interest for one of those guys instead of Zoe. I think both sides are getting sick/tried of her. At this point, I find her ANNOYING. Bilson is NOT the worlds greatest actress I am confused as to way she was casted as the center of show. Her charms is wearing off.

more wade and zoey please.

@jojo me too! I want zoe and george together!

Bethel/Bilson's chemistry is organic and unmatched. I love love watching them. I didn't care for the episode but I loved the way W made her laugh at the end. Cindylou -I too hate what the writers are doing to Z, but, I think alot has to do with getting you to accept the idea of Z/G. The more the writers try and help that character (G) they throw the other characters off balance. Last season was the prefect example. At this point it it what it is and if the writers would just accept this I think the show would be alot popluar then what it is.

I might be theeee only one, but I have wanted Zoe and George together since the pilot! And they had amaaaaazing chemistry in this episode!

I love Lavone and Wade (my favs.) Honesty, I was NOT a fan of Zoey in this episode, but, I was PROUD of Wade. Go Wade! Zoey is the one who needs to spend time ALONE.

The writing this season is making Zoe look really bad. What exactly is she doing with Wade if she still wants George? I am honestly perplexed with this show right now I don't know what to think.
I am not a fan of George & Zoe together. I like them both, well I'm liking Zoe less & less each week but I like George just not with her.
I wonder if when she leaves Wade for George (its inevitable) will she then find out about Wade making the gumbo for her.
I'm hoping that when (not if) she leaves Wade & sleeps w/George that she discovers he isnot all that & I'm hoping he is not "awesome" in bed. I want her to want Wade like she wants him.
I also hope Wade opens up his bar & be a success without her.
But I still want Zade in the end.

Just watched this week's episode. I think the thing I really love about this show is that Zoe is great with both George AND Wade. She has great, different chemistry with both of them which makes you kind of root for both of them! It is fun to see her with Wade now but I think it will also be fun to see her with George in the future!

I love Annabeth, and I think she deserves him far more than Lemon does!
