Hart of Dixie Review: The Cougar Is In

by at . Comments

On" Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me," we witnessed Zoe damage her relationship with Rose in order to insure that the high school football kicker, Max, would compete in a huge game.

Yes, Zoe was turned into the town "cougar."

McKalya Maroney Appearance

This episode featured a bunch of fun silly elements that kept the tone of Hart of Dixie Season 2 consistent: it's been especially light and adorable. It was an enjoyable hour with obvious aspects that I didn't really buy into or enjoy that much. To wit...

For the first time, I could have completely cared less about Lavon and Ruby's storyline. If you can't see that this relationship won't last for much longer, you need to do a re-watch. That said, I still love Ruby and what her character is doing to everyone else.

I will admit that the last scene with the both of them was a good one. It was great to see this moment happen, considering how much it says about their characters in the series.They both are ready for a strong and solid relationship. What Lavon and Ruby share right now works for the show but in the long run, I don't see it surviving.

How come? Because my end game pairing is, of course, Lemon and Lavon.

Watching Lemon taking charge of her life and finding something she is really good at was extremely entertaining. Though I feel bad for Annabeth having to fail at what she wanted to do in order for Lemon to succeed. I guess you could say that in the end they both accomplished what they wanted to.

I was proud, however, for Annabeth sticking up for yourself!" It has been boiling up for two seasons now and it finally came out. Both actresses did such a great job in that scene and then one in George's office. Thank you ,writers, you did it right. I look forward to watching their catering business blossom as they become successful partners.

I'm so happy for Lemon finding something that she can make a career out of and I appreciate George for still being an amazing guy to her. Now... if Lemon and Lavon could get together and she could continue to be successful, then all my HoD dreams will come true. Is it too good to be true? I hope not!

Elsewhere, what was up with that flash mob? On one hand I thought it was silly, funny and creative, but on the other, come on. It was ridiculous. It tied together at the end when Zoe gave her big speech about bravery and what not, but I am still having a hard time deciding whether or not I liked it. Max was an adorable character and love-sick boy, so I have a hard time hating those moments.

How adorable were the duo of Rose and Tonya tonight? Like I've said before, I could be bias considering I was waiting for McKayla's guest spot, but it was a good scene. I'm happy to see more of Rose and Tonya's character provides it. She may have only had three lines, but I hope they give McKayla more to do when she comes back in an later episode, so we can see what she is capable of as an actress.

Of course, Rose got her "man" at the end of the episode and everything was resolved, which I didn't feel was forced or out of character. However,, is it bad that I was hoping Tonya would be at her side, judging and rolling her eyes? Maybe I'm just being bias again.

Then the ending came and we saw that Wade baked for Zoe. This has to be the most adorable thing he has ever done on this show. I even said, "awwwww" out loud. These two are headed for a relationship whether they like it or not, actually, they're basically in one right now. I am loving it and I am loving how Wade's character is right now.

Overall, I think this episode was pretty decent. It had a sweet and innocent theme that left me smiling. Hart of Dixie is one of the few shows that doesn't stress me out or cause me yell at my TV (I'm looking at you, Revenge). It's a feel good show and that is the kind of episode we received tonight.

Hopefully TPTB have had people trolling the internet to get the reaction to the first part of the season and we'll see some things improved in the next couple of episodes/2nd half of the season. I want more Wade/Lavon scenes and wouldn't mind more of the medical stuff as well. And more storylines for George and Wade beyond Zoe/dating.

I also agree that the downfall was the 2nd half last season. I'm enjoying the 2nd season though a lot more than I did the 2nd half of last season. If they give the triangle a bit of a break or consistently write for it I'll feel a bit better. That is still my major gripe that the W/Z/G triangle is very weak. I don't care if they want to give ZG time, but they have to do it consistently so that I'm not thrown when an episode like 205 appears almost out of nowhere and makes Zoe look like an unlikable idiot. I also like the OTT touch so the flash mob didn't bother me. I do get the complaints about Crazy Earl though because I also was wondering how they managed to get him to be part of it. Those things I'm willing to forgive though because at the end of the day if I'm entertained I don't care that much.

Like most I'm not a fan of Ruby. I had such high hopes for the character when I first heard about her. I don't think they did her any favors by not really giving her any layers besides being mean. Now I just can't buy her with Lavon because she comes across as self-serving. I don't think she'll be around for much longer. The writers would have known that she didn't get a good reception so they hopefully are wrapping up her story soon. We already got the out when she told Lavon they'd take it day-by-day. They are setting up her exit. I don't mind new characters as long as they serve a purpose and add to the show. I also would like to see more of the regulars. Still hoping Shelley turns up in the Rammer Jammer one day soon.

The whole 15 year old with crush / flash mob thing was idiotic, in a bad way. On the other hand, this show has recovered from other foolish moments it had last season, so I suppose the world will keep spinning. Ruby has become a snooze. I thought she was going to fight with Lemon for Lavon. What's happening? Instead of stupid plots like the football kicker, I'd like to see more of all the other characters. Even people in small towns get serious illnesses, so it would also be nice to see Zoe tackling something real. Yes, the show is light-hearted, but it doesn't have to be mindless to be light.

I also miss the hairdresser who said that lavone was DELICIOUS. I understand they are background characters but they spice up the scenes and in my opion at times they are funnier then the main characters.

The show's down fall was the 2 half of last season with the exception of the finale. The 1st half was good but just needed some improvement. Totally agree w regards to crazy Earl. Shelley makes the scenes at the rammer jammer...she is really missed and so is Abby. Ruby and her grandfather make no sense and boring. I don't understand why the show messed w things that were working (shelley, abby, and crazy earl etc.,).

(Continued...) I just think he's such an interesting character on the show and it was painful to see him screwed over by a terrible writing choice.

I completely agree with you Sandy. 1) I miss Shelly and Wade scenes, 2) I've held off saying anything about Ruby because I wanted to see where the character went but this past week she was just flat out irritating, and 3) I'm also missing the sweetness between Wade and Zoe that seems to have been thrown out the window (although they continue to be the main reason I return to watch the show). Also, Crazy Earl leading the teens flash mob was just all kinds of messed up. He's Wade's alcoholic reclusive father, who needs to be sung off a roof top once a month (which by the way is completely forgotten about along with any hope for a scene with Burt Reynolds) so to see the character thrown under the bus by trying to lead a flash mob which he would've had to attend classes to learn the choreography for and also intertwine the long term effects of alcoholism into the choreography by stumbling was cringe worthy. I just think he's such an interesting character on the show and it was painful to see him screwed over by a terrible writing choice.
