Lemon Breeland may be single heading into tomorrow night's Hart of Dixie Season 2 premiere - but the southern belle isn't ready to mingle. Not just yet.
She has a lot to figure out by herself first.
"Lemon's on a journey of self-discovery," Jaime King told me late last week. "She realizes 'Holy sh-it!, I don't know how to do anything except be a mother or a wife.' Her whole life has been consumed by what man loves her and how she can fit in. It's been all about approval."
Look for some "turmoil" to arise between Lemon and her father as a result of the latter never encouraging his daughter to be a lawyer or, like her Season 1 rival, a doctor.
Lemon will actually move out this fall.
"She's trying to figure out what the heck to do with her life," King previews. "A lot of comedy will come from that."
"She works at the Rammer Jammer as a waitress. A terrible waitress."
Between last season's reveal of her mother, combined with her failed attempt at marriage, King doesn't view Lemon as the show's antagonist any longer. Especially with Golden Brooks coming to Bluebell as Lavon's high school sweetheart, Ruby.
"Ruby will mess things up," King says. "She gets involved with Lavon and viewers will learn that she bullied Lemon when they were in high school."
A new job, a new enemy and a new independent streak. Is there anything else we should expect from Lemon Breeland on Season 2?
King teased the following developments for the show in general?
- George will date around.
- Lemon will dress as a famous actor for the series' Halloween episode.
- Lavon will face serious competition in his campaign for re-election.
Hart of Dixie kicks off a new season tomorrow night at 8/7c on The CW.
