Zoe looked really disappointed after Wade turned her down. I hope he lets her know he will not be a substitute for George. She really needs to let him know she appreciates him and stop taking him for granted.
These concerns about inconsistency are just one of the reasons I think we lost out when they didn't show us George figuring out W/Z's relationship continued after the premiere. That would have been an important character development moment for him, and instead we got told instead of shown. How upset was he? When and why did he decide that he was "kinda ok" with it? Was he more upset with/felt more betrayed by Wade, his lifelong friend, or Zoe, his supposed love? Is he starting to realize (like most of the audience) that his feelings for Zoe were not real and simply an excuse to get out of his wedding?
Like I said, I'm actually mostly OK with how Wade has been written this season, but the G/Z branch of the triangle is indeed very frustrating and that's because they just expect us to make the jumps with the characters when they start making declarations of feelings instead of actually showing their relationship to us.
George hasn't completely and suddenly fell out of love with Zoe, he said his "kinda" ok with her and Wade because he has to be, seeing as he knows she's got a thing with Wade now. And like Zoe told him, she wants him to find himself and have fun because she didn't want to be his rebound. So he can date who ever he wants in the meantime.
As for Zoe, i think she has some feeling for Wade but again maybe only because she wants him to be more like George because that's the kind of guy she goes for. She still holds a torch for George because she didn't like the idea that he was ok with her and Wade, she hoped he would unhappy about it.
That is the sign of a man in love whose is experiencing heartbreak.
As for Zoe, although I do think she has feelings for George I think at this point in time it is more a habit than actual love. I don't think she was ever in love with him. It is an idea that she has clung to for over a year since she first entered town. She is afraid to let that picture and fantasy go. She also doesn't act like a woman in love. She has had many opportunities to be with George and experience her fantasy and she has found every excuse to not go through with it. She'd rather cling to the fantasy than actually have the reality.
For me the GZ side of the triangle has always been inconsistently written going back to last year. So adding in this season it isn't any different. There has been little to no real development on that end. It all started with Zoe's insta-love. I'm still not convinced when George even fell in love with Zoe. As of the wedding day he loved both Lemon and Zoe. Day after the wedding he was all gung-ho for Zoe. He also easily accepted the dating advice. So to see that he is now sort of ok with Wade being with Zoe it just goes along with the same pattern. I actually never believed that he was in love with Zoe. Sure he might have been attracted to her, but I believe that she was a breath of fresh air from Lemon. He was suffocating in that relationship with Lemon (although I do want them back together in the distant future). Someone else mentioned it. He was devastated when he found out about Lavon and Lemon and then again when that song came on in NO. That is the sign of a man in
The inconsistency is the major flaw to me too. In my opion the show is in such a hurry to get through a storyline that it's misses details. For instance, until this episode we were led to believe George was madly in love w Zoe but now he's okay w her seeing Wade - that doesn't make any sense. No body fells out of love that fast. I need to know why he came to that conclusion ...more then some stupid story about how he and Tanzy connected...supposedly he connected w Zoey not to long ago and she was his true love. I idea that he wouldn't wallow in a little pity after being rejected by Zoey (after the wedding) is crazy. Zoey is the queen of flip flop. After all that hurt she caused Wade in the past you would have thought she would be a little bit more considerate of his feeling but instead you see this character who is clueless of her past actions. This is annoying.
I AGREE Wade needs to leave Zoe alone and grow on his own. That girl only cares about two people... herself and George Tucker. In her mind Wade will always be meaningless when it comes to George.
Completely agree ReneeM. There was definitely character growth this episode, like there has been in many episodes in the past however; it's the consistency of these new developments being continued into episodes to come that I get annoyed by. We find a new piece of information about a character's background or their thoughts/feelings on something and then it could be as soon as the following episode that it's easily forgotten. So yes, I agree "the writers of HOD are very inconsistent in character development; it's the weakest part of the show".
I'm still going to try to find time to re-watch the episode though. I've said it before but it's definitely Wade and Zoe's chemistry that has me returning to the show (they're definitely not boring in my opinion).
Felt very badly for Wade. While I had liked them as a couple, Zoe's total cluelessness and passive meanness to him make me think he deserves better. Still can't see George with Tansy; I think Wade called it, she would be his placeholder girl. And they seem to belong in totally different worlds. I agree that George does not act like a man in love. Sorry to see the writers are going to draw out the Lavon/Ruby storyline, because she clearly does not belong in Bluebell, and Lavon does. And YES, the writers of HOD are very inconsistent in character development; it's the weakest part of the show.
OMG OMG Poor Wade! And Poor Brick too! That last scene was heartbreaking. I'm not sure it the writers mean for the viewers to dislike Zoe, but that's kind of where I'm at at the moment. Is it fair, probably not. But I think Wade (and everyone else's actually) growth has been so great this season that Zoe not realising his, or her own feeling, is starting to tick me off. Loved the advice George gave him. Speaks volumes about their friendship.
Just loved last night's episode - Lots of character development and some silliness, too - perfect HOD mix.
Re: Wade - I really wish they'd give him the opportunity to stand up for himself with and without Zoe - He knows (logically) that he's as good or better than anyone else in that town, but he's letting inertia keep him stuck - in his job, in his dating patterns, etc... I think it would be ideal to have him take what he's learned about himself and his interests and grow a little without Zoe - Show her what she's giving up by not seeing the potential.
Re: Zoe - Jeez Louise, girl! On one of the first episodes she equated herself with Miranda from SITC - Well, the big advantage of being a "Miranda" is that you get to choose who you want to be with JUST BECAUSE you want to be with them. You don't need your partner to help define you in any way. That's why it's great to be a Miranda (vs. a Carrie, who's the type who needed a Prince Charming).
Re: George - Yeah for Tansy! I
Im so torn......George and Tansy.....Interesting
Nice that Wade was concerned for her:) Hope George doesn't prove him right. She's a nice girl & deserves a good guy. I hope George is that guy.
But.... I still want him & Lemon to get back together
Zoe and Wade and the possible end of their relationship: I love Wade and at time I do want to kick his butt for being immature or mean, I am still team Wade. I felt really bad when Zoe basically admitted this was temporary! The look of sadness on his face was heartbreaking! I wanted to give him a hug. Sadly I fear the return of mean Wade!
This was a pretty good episode. It dealt with realtionships.
Lavon and Rose ending and starting again: I am still not a fan or Rose and want Lemon and Lavon to get together, I hope they head that direction eventually.
Brick and Emily ending: I am not the biggest Brick fan but seeing him in a relationship that he felt so strongly about and to have her break up with him was sad, I felt bad for him. I also felt bad for Magnolia, she did not like Emily and then when she finally allowed herself too, Emily goes and breaks Bricks heart.
Tansy and George and the possible start to their relationship. I know people did say they had an issue with that but I think I will like it.
George telling Wade he knew about him and Zoe was perfect! I loved that scene. Then George telling Wade that if he feels like a place holder that he should talk to Zoe.
Zoe and Wade and the possible end of their relationship: I love Wade and at time I do want to kick his butt for being immature or mean, I am
My heart also broke for Wade in that last scene--for both of them actually because you could tell that both of them wanted to reach out and say more but just couldn't bring themselves to do so. It was such a powerful scene (they both said so much without actually saying much of anything), a real testament to their on-screen chemistry.
@Elle-Normally, I'd be the first to complain about character consistency, especially when it comes to Zoe (mostly because she makes so many drastic swings). But for some reason, I'm not as bothered by how Wade is written this season. People really do fluctuate in how confident and clued in they are about their romantic life. Character growth/development doesn't necessarily mean unrelenting progression.
@Marisa-I don't think it's unrealistic that George would have figured it out. It would be very stupid in a Clark Kent/Superman-Obvious Kind of Way that he wouldn't. But, like I said earlier, I don't buy that that would be his reaction. Everything we know about George AND how this show is written suggests there would be a freak-out and a confrontation. To have him be "eh, whatever, I'm fine with it" when he reveals his awareness X amount of time later... They're trying to grow up all the characters this season, clearly, but I don't think George is that far along yet.
Loved the wade and george scene, its true what wade said to him and it seems george has moved on from zoe a bit to easily....maybe because he was confused with his feelings for her and in fact used her as an excuse to break up with the woman he loved for 15 years...the sleepwalking episode only confirmed that he sees her has his backup for everything and not an equal like wade.
episode got 1 star for having to see wade's heart break on two occasions; when zoe chose george as her confidant on the phone and her reaction to george's acknowledgement and suggestive blessing. the brick situation was sad, writers should have gone endgame there. lemon and lavon suit as friends. ruby and lavon are in two different places in life
2) the fact that wade on countless occasions this season and last wanted to be with her the writers keep on adding the george dilemma! when george and lemon were willing to elope he never thought of zoe so why must he always be brought in to ruin her moments with wade?
3) my heart broke for wade and i was screaming at my screen for zoe to run after wade and say but its you i chose not him *sigh* it so obvious they are each other's endgame on the grounds that they cause each other to grow and remain grounded. they are equals and work well together and also the passion side helps ;)
if the writers make wade and zoe anything like other sitcoms i will literally go ballistic! the reason i watch and love love love this show is for its southern charm and simplicity. leave the triangles and complications to the GG, friends basically the northerners and keep wade and zoe together!
zoe needs to wake up and smell the coffee before its too late. i want her and george to remember new orleans and how they had the opportunity but george was still hung up not to mention ENGAGED to lemon. baby girl this should have already warned you what your relationship with him was going to be like...
Great episode. I totally agree that Zoe is totally clueless when it comes to Wade. I almost cried when he saw how Zoe reacted when he said that George didn't care that they were sleeping together. She just hurt him by that one reaction. She really needs to get her act together and get w/ the program that Wade is her endgame. Oh and as much as I love Ruby and Lavon I thought it was wrong of him to ask her to give up that job for him. If u love someone you would love to see them succeed in everything that they do. As long as they're happy you should be happy too. Ruby is more of a city girl that Bluebell life isn't for her. And shocker of the night.... I'm growing to like Lemon... She's matured so much. It's a wonderful thing to see. Poor Brick! I hope his love comes back I liked them together they were too cute. Next week episode looks like its going to be exciting!!! Can't wait for the auction!!!!
wade and zoe really??is that hot ??ok im oficially lost not sure im watching the same thing as everybody else...zoe is someone you want to like so bad but so bad and yet she goes really fast from cute and sweet to annoying and silly
Also, my heart almost broke when two of my favorite characters, Lemon and Brick got their heart broken tonight.
I really liked this episode, it showed a lot of character growth for Lemon, Wade, Magnolia and George. I liked how Wade was able to get through to the young boy, making him feel special even though he wasn't athletic. Now Wade has to follow his own advice and believe that he is not worth less. Or else, he'll continue his self-destructive path (one step forward, two steps back). I wasn't surprised George knew it was Wade. Zoe told him she was seeing someone, who else could it have been? Don't underestimate George, he isn't as clueless as they make him out to be.
Wait...so Wade and Zoe are the most boring parts of thre Dixie but you want them together? I'm confused, how does that work?
My heart broke for Wade!
