Hart of Dixie Review: The Cougar Is In

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."

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.

For me this was not my favorite episode but it had some good moments.
I liked the end when Wade baked black and white cookies for Zoe, they may have tasted terrible it was a cute gesture.
Zoe is not the casual relationship type and they may be keeping it a secret but it pretty much is a relationship as they are not seeing or sleeping with anyone but eachother and now she wants romance. Zoe just go public with Wade already!!!!
I like Lemon and Annabeth going into buisness together but they have to come up with a good name.
I also liked the end when Brick told Zoe she did a good job! We need more of that.
I think Zoe handled the crush well and I know highschool football is huge but the town pushing Zoe to string him along until after the game was just wrong.
Personally I do not like Rose and Lavon.


Count me among those who want George and Lemon together - after George grows up (and grovels). Right now, I prefer to see Lemon on her own, but eventually, I hope they'll find their way back to each other. There's someone out there perfect for Lavon, but it's not Lemon or Ruby, IMO. The only thing I liked about the flash mob was that there were so many recognizable characters in it. I love how this show really does feel like a small town, with the recurring characters in the background all the time. (Although, that makes Shelley and Addy's absence even more obvious.) Alas, it was still dated/overdone and cringe-worthy, especially considering the whole town was helping a 15-year-old boy woo, or rather make inappropriate and unwanted sexual advances towards, a grown woman. Still not getting over that.


This was a great episode. Sweet, funny, and quirky. Yes parts of it were OTT, but that is what I've come to expect and love about HoD. I love that they had the townspeople in the flash mob. It just added to the quirkiness. Every week I think I can't love Wade and Zoe and more and then the writers keep surprising me. I love the way their relationship is progressing for now. They are stumbling into a relationship. Agreed that at some point soon Zoe is going to have to do some giving as well. Wade is uncertain but clearly willing to to try with just a little urging from her. Ruby can still go but she can leave Grandpa behind. Loved his scenes with Lavon. I'm another one who still would like George and Lemon to get back together. I think they have great chemistry and they know each other so well. Loved that she was finishing his sentences. And as always AB & Lemon were terrific.


Wade just is not used to being in a relationship. So he is unsure about how to act. Also Zoe wont admit that they are in a relationship & he is still guarded, doesn't want to get hurt. These two are lovable & frustrating at the same time.
I seem to be in the minority here but I still want George & Lemon to get back together.


I might be alone here, but I LOVED the flash mob. At first I thought it was pretty ridiculous, but then I just couldn't stop laughing because it was so ridiculous it was FUNNY. Really enjoyed that scene :)


Maria- at the end, Zoe answers to Wade "get naked?" And he say "I thought you would never ask" Love me some Zade!!! They are my favorite.


What was the last line Zoe said to Wade, when he responded, "I thought you would never ask"? (On the episode, Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me"). I've been rewinding and rewinding, and can not make out the word(s). It's frustrating me!! If anyone knows, let me know. thanks


I have very mixed feelings about this ep. Positives were definitely the Lemon & Annabeth storyline (my not-so-secret favorite duo) and Wade baking. Negatives included the Lavon/Ruby storyline (yawn), the flash mob (those are getting old), and most of all Zoe's main storyline. I don't know what was worse: the pedophile nature of it or the fact that the whole town encouraged it and everyone, including the kid, got upset at Zoe for not putting up with it. I think they were pushing the Wade isn't romantic angle too hard. His actions have always spoken louder than words, even last season. And if Zoe wants romance so badly, why is she so they only have a casual, no-strings-attached fling? Trying to have her cake (or cookies) and eat it too. The whole thing just felt very OOC/inconsistent, just to push the nonsense storyline of the week.
