Hart of Dixie > Hart of Dixie Review: The Ship Is Sailing > Comments Page 2
I will admit the show is boring this season but not because of Wsde...without him the show is NOT worth watching. The writing are NOT giving us any interesting show lines. The writers have made Zoe such an unlikeable character... people are ANNOYED at her. George can have Zoe. I think the majority of the fans are invested in Wade's storyline.
Am I the only one who ships Zoe and George? I've loved them together since the the pilot, which is why this season has been absolutely dreadful to watch. Sure, Wade has been changing these past few episodes, but for a whole season I've watched him acting like an annoying, immature, womanizing ass who handles his feelings like a little school boy. And sadly that's how I'll always feel about his character.
The only thing that's interested me this season is Lemon. I'm really loving her character now that she's trying to make something of herself.
hate when this cuts off. the last part says: That scene in the church between him and Earl gave a lot of background and explanation as to how both characters dealt with the grieving process.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Wade and Zoe are finally together after a year and a half of will they or won't they, which these days I personally feel is way overdone. I will refer specifically to Booth and Brennan from Bones (6 years), and Castle and Beckett from Castle (4 years) and it drove me nuts how both shows would have them be thisclose and then at the last possible minute throw an obstacle in the mix to keep them as "just friends" a little bit longer. So I am very happy HOD moved the romance story along rather quickly. I strongly disagree with the comments that Zoe needs to leave Bluebell and putting Wade down and treating his past as a nothing more than a sympathy story. (1) If Zoe left then there wouldn't be a show as it is called "Hart" of Dixie and she is the primary character. She even said herself that being a GP is a good fit and suits her. (2) Wade actually had a legitimate tragedy happen in his family with the death of his mother from a terminal illness. That scene in the chu
Where did Tom get one of Wade's Nike shoes from in the final scene? It magically appeared in his hand and he left it on the table!
coco...no talking about marriage here so why can't zoe have some fun with Wade.
I KINDA agree with Coco... Wade needs to move on to bigger and better things... Open up a bar or buy the Rammer Jammer. Or open up a construction business... He is so good at so many things the possibilities are endless. I am not happy that he is kinda stagnant these days.
I dont want Lemon with Lavon, I dont think she is selfish. I think she is confused. I want her back with George, but I like George with Tansy as well.
I dont see Zoe being happy in Bluebell unless she has some major revelations or life changes.. A kid maybe....
Someone know the title of the song sounds the last scene?
I find it weird that everyone is saying that Zoe is such a better person now that she's finally with Wade and understands him. What?? Zoe being selfish is fine. Lemon is so much more childish and self-absorbed and I LOVE her without any man. And I think everyone was loving the Lemon growth sans Lavon or George. But when Zoe decides to be selfish everyone's on her case because Wade is soooooo hottttt and ooomg Wade is like the perfect dude and how dare that b!tch Zoe care more about herself than about poor, hot, womanizing, but totally evolved for the past few weeks despite years of terrible history Wade.
Anyways, realistically Zoe should leave that town and be a real doctor. Because let's be honest, she's a big town girl and as a New Yorker myself, there is no way in hell I would submit myself to a life with a dead end bartender. George and Tansy, however, I can see. He has always been a small town boy. He and Zoe would also not work out in the end, but Tansy might be a good thing
this is absolutely my favorite show at the moment - makes me feel better after watching it :-) blue christmas was really an amazing episode - so much emotions... I love Zoe and Wade together and both actors are really doing a wonderful job. Also love Lemon, but cannot decide if I want Lavon or George for her? With Lavon, there was much more magic, I think, but he really seems to have moved on. Therefore might be difficult for the writers to make him love Lemon again. George, on the other hand - wouldn´t it make him a foolish person first to break up at his wedding and then to realize he does love her in the end? I´m really eager to find out where Lemon will end up? As I really love the show would love it to see more of Zoes work, as you could in the first season - her saving some lives or stuff :-)
With regard to Ruby, I'm not all about kicking her off the show. She's just a character that happens to now be a part of the show to me BUT (if I'm completely honest) I do notice I find myself doing very small fast forwards through her scenes. I hate being critical like this... her voice. Is that the character's voice she's created or the actors? It's like a slow whisper or something and it detracts from her scenes. I feel like she does it for the character because she's meant to be slightly stuck-up and a little fake whilst she's also had scenes with Zoe where it hasn't been so pronounced and I've found them much more enjoyable to watch...
Love this season through and through... Here's my breakdown on the characters' relationships...
I really love seeing Wade and Zoe together because, on one hand, you have Zoe, who challenges him, and on the other, there's Wade who pulls Zoe back to earth when her head gets too far in the clouds. Both keep each other interested and that's where the strong spark comes in. I've honestly grown to love Wade more than George (my original favorite) because overtime he has shown viewers so many different dimensions, while George, although sweet and handsome, hasn't changed too much.
George and Tansy...not gonna lie, still not seeing it, but I guess it works as a temporary fling. I'm going to have to agree with Wade on this one: George will realize that his brief connection with Tansy is still nothing compared to his strong feelings for Zoe Hart.
Lavon and Ruby...glad that it ended, although I did not see Ruby as much of a villain as others' in this forum. In a nutshell, she'd outgrown
ITA with Mel. In this episode I got the feeling that Wade realized the only thing keeping them apart was Zoe and her head. At the beginning when she said that she was happy, he told her that was fine if that was the story she was telling herself. He knew she wasn't happy and that she was lying to herself and him. Also in the church I felt sad for both of them because it felt so hopeless. Going back to 209 all Wade was asking for was a chance for them to see if what they had could develop into more. He really wasn't asking for much. I never thought it would take much from her for him to come around. At the end of the day he is in love with her and wants to be with her. He isn't going to let pride stand in the way of that. He just wanted her to acknowledge him and what they had and to give it a real chance instead of looking past them and onto George. She gave him that finally.
@ReneeM This in one of the reasons I love this couple so much. They are believable. They are just two people acting on their feelings, good or bad. There were no Chuck and Blair "we can't be together because..." pacts *PUKE*! Zoe said the right words and Wade did the right thing... They are awesome and I really, really hope they are endgame because they can really grow together.
@ReneeM I think that Wade was really hurt with how Zoe reacted to George knowing about them. IMHO and as Zoe stated he really did put himself out there when he asked her out. Not everyone could do it. I guess he knew that they could be something more, and the whole break-up came from the fact that she was unable to see it and treated him like he was a placeholder. As it turned out, she was able to see it but she was to afraid to admit it.
It didn't surprise me that he was so willing to put it all behind when she came to him. He is not a bitter person. She acknowledged him and that was enough.
@T You said it perfectly about how I feel about Ruby.
I don't want to dislike characters on this show that for me is a feel good show. Sure I go through my moments where one of them may not be acting their best, but usually I can understand why. With Ruby all I see is meanness. At times she was ok like in 209, but then she is back to being downright mean without any depth.
@MM That is what I think Jonah is going to be. He seems to be the new Ruby at least for me.
This is just a hunch, but I get the feeling that with Ruby's leaving, the newest Breeland in town, Jonah, is going to be the new antagonist in HoD. Since Zoe gets on fairly well with Brick and her and Lemon have a somewhat civil relationship now
@John: I'll take my chances with wishing Ruby gone. I'm not a big believer in the Every Show Needs a Villain argument, especially not when that requires the intro of a temporary character instead of one we at least know and care about. If this were an action or supernatural show, maybe. It's not. It's a show about regular people's lives and relationships in a somewhat irregular town. For good writers, there's enough drama in that without having to create it. Even last year's "antagonist" Lemon was allowed to have depth and sympathy. I don't see that with Ruby at all. It's completely uninteresting to me to have a character whose apparent SOLE purpose is to cause trouble and heartbreak.
If we must have someone stirring up things, there are MORE than enough characters in Bluebell already that can be developed more. At least one of them I'd consider rooting for, instead of tuning out every single scene.
John, I like Ruby and I like Lavon better with her than Lemon but probably because I want her back with george. Conflicted bcuz he's great with Tansy too!
I loved this espisode...particularity Zoe for once she was not acting self absorbed. I saw growth from her and I hope she continues... She was struggling w her feelings and it showed. For once she owned up to her mistake. Iam sooooooooooooooooo missing Shelley.
And by the way, for those of you who want Ruby to go away: the writers would be nuts to do that. Ruby plays the part of the pepper in the Kung Pao Chicken. She is the change-up. She is the villian. She is the one character who has been stirring things up in this show for he past few weeks. You have to admit this: if she's making you angry, if she repulses you, then she's a fine actress and doing her job. If they do get rid of her, then they're going to have to find a similar character to take her place.
And writers ... please, please give Lemon something good for a change. She's like the town punching bag. Jaime King is an unbelievable talent.
@ReneeM - how dare you bring up the elephant in the room?! I agree, though. At the same time, I'm not concerned. This was a great ep before going into the holiday hiatus (or "midseason finale" as they insist on calling them these days), because it resolved one conflict and moved the relationship into new territory. But it wasn't a series or even a season finale so they can't and indeed shouldn't solve all of their problems and live happily ever after. The George conversation is bigger and deserves more than the last few minutes of an ep.
@John: I AGREE! Lemon's trying so hard and she deserves so much more in all aspects of her life.
I think the show really needs to cut Lemon a break. I have watched every episode, and, in my opinion, she has by far the most complicated and entertaining character. But her character is tormented while remaining honest and sweet. I saw that after the first couple of episodes.
If there is ANY character on this show that is deserving of something good, it is Lemon.
What a great episode! Wade was totally sitting in the wicker chair he took from Zoe! How adorable.
Ellen I didn't like that Wade was dating either but I CHOSE to pretend it didn't happen... lol
