In the past, Wade never opened to anyone about his feelings about Zoe. He did not talked to Lavon about her. Lavon just understood how he felt through his actions, setting traps for him to reveal his true feelings like not changing the fuse box. He also did not open to George, his talk about Tanzy made George realize how he was feeling and led him to give advice to Wade. Despite his social persona, Wade is a true intravert, besides it is not easy for him to come out and talk about his feelings after keeping them under wraps for years.
I had forgotten this note card incident with Judson. Her stupid book makes more sense now.
DeeC - Couldn't agree more - Zoe/Wade both have some serious "self-work" to do before they're ready for anything long-term. I always kind of took the disappointment with George's "moving on" to be one of those "gosh, now my back-up plan isn't there anymore." That lack of a back-up also might be what's causing some of the craziness with Wade - If he's her "only" choice (vs. choice with George still around as back-up) the success or failure of that relationship becomes so much more important to Zoe. When she had George on the back burner she could explore things with Wade at low risk - Now it's high risk.
That, or she's just mental. There's always that.
What I've been missing this series is any real interaction between Lavon and Wade. What would have been good this episode is if Wade had gone to him at the beginning and asked his advice. I know he's Zoe's friend now but that shouldn't preclude him from being Wade's as well. Lavon was really supportive last season and it would be nice to hear his opinion that isn't filtered through his interactions with Zoe. Wade helped him out with his concerns about Ruby, I don't see why Lavon wouldn't do the same. I think it would be good for Wade to get a different perspective on Zoe's behavior as well.
come on you people, cut zoe some slack.
She´s not doing right by wade, but she´s not really experienced in the relationship department. I agree T, the whole Judson thing is proove enough that dating is not really her area of expertise.
And both of them wade and zoe behave so cautious and are performing such a highspeed tiptoepolka around their feelings that eventually one had to trip.
ReneeM I thought the same thing about the dog. So glad people get more and more aware. besides Tansy must be an awesome gal to name a pitbull dolly parton. But then the name of the mayor´s gator is burt reynolds.
I loved that everyone opened themselves up to new experiences and people in this episode, with varying degrees of success. I also appreciate that they've at least acknowledged that Zoe is actively resisting "evolution" because she still is the character that has grown the least no matter how many times she says she changed her life to move to Bluebell. At the same time, I'm not going to fault her for being herself. She's not required to devote herself entirely to a real relationship with Wade just because he wants one or because he's the cute fan favorite. I'm Team Zade all the way, but I think the audience tends to be a lot harder on Zoe while overlooking or justifying Wade's actions. And again, I'd rather see this develop realistically than slapped together unbelievably just to give the audience what they (think they) want.
I loved this episode! Personally, I'm more convinced than ever that Wade and Zoe are "endgame" and now I'm just enjoying the ride. As annoying as the triangle is, I'd much prefer to have complex characters with dramatic feelings and realistic insecurities who make mistakes, don't necessarily know what they want and are occasionally (*gasp*) "unlikeable."
I haven't seen anyone else mention this, but there are a lot of comments here so I might have missed it. I wasn't surprised at all by the book on the date, nor did I find it a bad thing. Remember Judson with her notecard questions? We've seen that Zoe feels very pressured by First Dates, especially if it's a guy she likes.
I found George's behavior with Tansy at the end ("want to see how this ends," etc.) rather rude and inconsiderate to Zoe. He didn't even seem to remember they're supposedly in love with each other and waiting for the right time to be together. Yet more proof to me that he doesn't really care about her.
(continued...) All the while Wade has made it clear that he holds Zoe more importantly than just a casual sleeping buddy whilst Zoe (whether the writers have stayed true to that in every episode) has for some time now, been aware of Wade's feelings for her. They're constantly enjoying each other’s company and are there for each other much more than just sex buddies (several conversations included with clothes on). I'm sorry but that first statement is just incredibly incorrect.
I actually wonder if Zoe has really, really started to like Wade and begun realizing his importance to her that it scares her she could lose him completely if they do make things more serious and for some reason it doesn’t work out. Of course this is an adult woman’s way of thinking and sometimes they write Zoe to be quite the opposite.
“I totally ship a third season to this show it's unique and addicting” haha so true Nikki :)
I REALLY loved this weeks episode and yet... oh my god Zoe! grrr... "I don't get it. She has had plenty of conversations with Wade in bed and out, why is this so difficult for her? I just wanted to knock some sense into her." Exactly.
Also... this statement that "Wade apparently gets to decide exactly when everything in this relationship happens" - WWWWWHAT?!!? I'm pretty sure they were both 50/50 in when they kicked off their benefits deal, and then it was Zoe that decided she wanted a monogamous relationship, AND THEN IT WAS ZOE that made it clear George was still in the picture whilst she made rules for Wade to abide by as her and Wade were obviously getting more serious, AND THEN IT WAS ZOE that asked for romance which Wade went about trying to make happen for her. All the while Wade has made it clear that he holds Zoe more importantly than just a casual sleeping buddy whilst Zoe (whether the writers have stayed true to that in every episode) has for some time now, been aware of
could someone tell me how the song is called in the last episode?
I agree with one of the commentators below. A few episodes ago, I wanted to strangle Wade's neck for his immaturity and thoughtless actions. Now, it's Zoe that needs a good talkin' too. In the end, though, both of these individuals have their lion's share of problems. Neither one of them knows how to be in a committed relationship. Wade, with his womanzing, and Zoe, with her perpetual fixation on what the right guy is suppose to look like. She stayed in a relationship for years because it was convenient, he looked good on paper, and they were in the same profession. Zoe and Wade are going to be at odds for awhile until they both grow up.
I totally ship a third season to this show it's unique and addicting. Also I ship zade totally their like chair they belong together and should be the endgame wade knows zoe he knows how to handle her and he knows her. George does not tansy is perfect for him I get irritated with zoes character at times but from what I saw in this episode I think she's scared wade is different from what she's used to but that's what makes him so perfect for her. I love the dominating leader that wade was showing in this episode with her I hope he keeps it up he's lead her a bit in the past but I ike how this episode showed it more. I read in a tv guide that everything comes to a head for zoe in the holiday episode plus I read in a spoiler that episode 13 zoe goes against brick in a doctor challenge and wade comes in to support her and is a hot coach for her which means there on good terms in that epiosde who knows where their relationship is in that episode. Also zoe needs to ease up on wade he's helpe
Yeah, Zoe is both mean and clueless ready. She needs a Cher in Moonstruck -- someone to slap her and tell her to snap out of it! And I'm getting tired of nothing working out for Lemon. She has learned and grown more than Zoe has, so why can't she get something she wants?
Must say, I'm very impressed with HOD's writers last night because they actually made me like the idea of George and Tansy! A relationship that seemed completely forced and unviable was suddenly believable for me. I loved that he helped her steal back her dog! And as an SPCA volunteer and dog trainer, I want to thank HOD for making the dog a pit bull mix! These dogs are unfairly maligned by the "if bleeds it leads" sensationalistic "news" programs. And it's funny how so many hate the dogs who have no control in the matter, but are willing to overlook sadistic dog fighter/torturers like Eagles QB Michael Vick, who knew exactly what he was doing.
I love Tansy - so glad she is back and George and her are very cute togeher to my surprise as I was a bit of a fan of Tansy and Wade in Season 1. But this season - hey ultimately Zoe and Wade are a couple already - whether they realise it or not. Fact is Zoe chooses Wade all the time - she has done from the start. She may not do it in her heart, head or feelings but she constantly chooses him in her actions. And lets face it love isn't something you feel its something you do and when it comes to do Zoe is Wade all the way. Every hurdle and obstacle he sets up she takes every time - anytime she could choose him over George she does ansd this week she went well out of her way to have the date he wanted. Lets be real he should have been happy that she said lets have another actually real date but no he wanted the one he set down and she did everything she could and more to have that happen.
I am a huge Wade fan but right now he needs his butt kicked - Zoe is clearly choosing him all the
Meant to say "since the start of the season"
What I loved about this episode? George and Tansy! So cute and spontaneous. George actually looked genuinely happy for the first time since.
Poor Lemon, she just cannot catch a break. Although I was very proud of her and how she acted on her and Lavon's date. I'd still love for those two to get back together.
And then my poor Wade... I didn't think I could like Zoe less than last week. I was wrong. I'd love Zade together, but I'm Team Wade first. Hope he gets a happy storyline soon. With or without Zoe
Bar girl George was dating broke up with him after she realized he was imposing his will on it during mayoral elections. George has assumed that she would be voting for Lavon when he persuaded her to vote. She was offended by his behaviour and made it quite clear that she is no longer in him.
George is a better fit for Tanzy instead of Presley (bar girl), Lemon and most definitely Zoe.
On the contrary, Wade has always been very mature wherever it mattered, he has been there for his father, not leaving Bluebell to take care of him. Wade has always been there to help her when she needed sometimes without taking credit (Gumbo), he has stayed away from her when she did not make up her mind, he has stick to the rules Zoe made up in the relation (even when Zoe did not); he tried to tell her about her feelings openly and directly and was interrupted,whereas Zoe just said she felt connected, she always wanted him to confess his feelings towards her whereas she always said the relation would not go anywhere, they were so different, she did not like him etc. You would not expect Wade to come out and say his feelings when she becomes obsessed with George and so eager to underline their differences. Despite insisting on a "sex only" relation, she wanted commitment (exclusivity) and for romance. If someone needs to mature in the relation, it is definitely Zoe and n
This one of my favorite episodes!
For once I liked Ruby.
I also really like Lemon this season. I want her and Lavon to end up together but the cute dentist is good for now as Lavon has Ruby.
Brick and his date were super cute and funny together.
I really like Geroge and Tansy, she makes George mroe relaxed and goofy! A side that I like to see.
I feel super bad for Wade, I have been team Wade from the start and while there were times that he was immature and mean to Zoe that I wanted to yell at him, he really is a good guy and really likes Zoe. I hope that the look she gave him at the end means she smartened up and will ask him for another chance. Wade is better for her than George.
Where is that bar girl George was dating? She just disappeared or I seemed to miss an explanation for it? She was so cool.
I know that everyone seems to be hard on Zoe right now but what i can see is that when Zoe had admitted to liking Wade all he did was shot her down, he made it seem like she wasn't that good in bed either and that he has had better. I don't think Zoe see's herself as being better than Wade but she is more mature, Wade has a teenage boy personality and so far when he says hurtful things to her it seems to be ok, but when she does she has to be the one to run back to him and apologize in order to ease his ego. Yeah i really like Wade but i wouldn't see them working out in the long run if he doesn't mature faster.
I do not agree with the comment that says Zoe is doing the right thing because she is being honest with Wade. I do not think she is honest, she is lying to herself, how she can be honest with anyone else when she is not open and honest to herself about her feelings.
I would agree that fear of change is one of the motives for Zoe's behaviour, but not the only one. She believes herself to be superior to Wade and can not manage to "condescend" to his level on a regular, open to public kind of relation. She also seems to have hard time about changes in life when it does not suit them, although she also changed during her time in Bluebell. She lacks self awareness in a major way.
I agree that Zoe is really afraid. Things are changing around her and she stubbornly seems to want everything to just remain the same. She did come across as completely selfish in this episode though, but I'm taking that as a reaction to feeling out of control.
I think Wade had every right to ask for a date. Up until now it has been Zoe setting the pace of the relationship. Wade has gone along with her on everything. It was time that he stood up for himself and forced an issue. He knew Zoe would react the way she did and he tried to keep it as low key as he could so she wouldn't freak out. Unfortunately it is yet another change that she hasn't had time to adjust to. I don't think this has anything to do with George and is just her not liking change. And no Zoe and Wade aren't over by a long shot. There has been too much build up just for it to end like that. We still have next week.
I have a different perspective on the Zoe/Wade thing...first, for sake of argument...switch their genders. If Zoe had decided she wanted a real relationship and then tried to test or trick Wade into a ultimatum type decision and Wade was the one who was having commitment issues and being afraid of change, well, that would be what has happened in five billion other sitcoms and dramas throughout time. And if we are going to follow this path...Zoe is going to have to make some grand gesture to Wade (likely after a series of pitfalls) and the two of them could likely be engaged by the end of the season. Additionally, her mother comes to visit next week and that has been the thing that has propelled Zoe to change before.
As much as I wanted to kick the TV screen last night because watching Zoe with Wade was so incredibly frustrating, I think Zoe is just really scared. She's only been in one other relationship before this and it was not a good one; she has no idea how to act. Also, she's terrified of change and, if I'm being honest, who can't relate to that? I think she's going to realize that she does have actual feelins for Wade and that change can be a good thing if you let it be...the question is when!
It is not Wade, but Zoe who has decided about the pace and parameters of the relationship up to now. If you are talking about equality, you should also accept the right of Wade to make demands in the relationship. Wade backed off, because he could take being hurt any more and had to take a stand eventually.
I do not think/I never did Zoe was in love with George. She does not even know George let alone a real relation/friendship with him. George is just a fantasy, a picture in her mind about how her perfect husband should be. Despite his flaws and immature behaviour sometimes, Wade is the most mature and sensitive guy on the show. He asked for a real date, as an adult would do after spending so much time together. He has always been there for her, they have communicated, talked and been open with one another in the past. It is Zoe's condescension, snobbery and delusion with George that is keeping them apart. Still, I think Wade and Zoe will eventually end up together, they are the u
