Hart of Dixie > Hart of Dixie Review: The Break Up > Comments Page 4
So I live in Ireland, so I'm always a day behind watching the latest episode...but every Wednesday morning I check out this page to see what happened in the previous nights episode and I haven't been able to bring myself to watch HOD since "Take me Home, Country Roads", as that's where it started to spell the end for Wade & Zoe. I know it's not real, but their relationship was what I liked best - I love(d) Wade. I didn't so much love Zoe and I wonder if that's why the writers did this to her character - to make us like her more. Given the fact that she is meant to be the main character it's strange that I only really liked seeing her when she was with Wade. So maybe this will make Wade the bad guy and Zoe more likable...But to be clear, I don't like it - I liked them together, they made each other better :(
The only thing that will rectify this is if I see Zoe and Wade in a devastated argument full of tears. Wade crying, and Zoe crying with exhausted fists of anger to his chest. Even then, this is a pretty messed up situation the writers have made for themselves. Viewers have spent forever cheering them on and just like that we're all back to the pilot again. This time with Zoe having a damn good reason to actually not like Wade.
Debra Jo Rupp - her acting when she explained her experience with a cheating partner "...and my world just, stopped." she was fantastic on the episode.
@Judith : I missed Brick too. It seems like the episodes are always better when he's in it. I love the character and he's the most underused on this show.
I just rewatched all the Wade and Zoe parts from tonight's episode just to make sure all this really happened and was not the bad dream I hoped it would be. Why HOD writers did you have to ruin all the progress Wade had made in season 2? He has wanted Zoe since the pilot episode and we are supposed to believe he would be that stupid? I will admit that Zoe is the one that I am usally mad at when it comes to their relationship but tonight I am just sad, sad, sad. Wilson Bethel has played Wade to perfection and for the writers to sabotage that is just plain wrong. Everything that Wade has done in the last couple of episodes has been totally out of charachter for the man that Wade was becoming. I only hope that they will use the remaining episodesof season 2 to rectify that. The previews from next weeks episode are not making me too happy either. Zoe and Jonah ugh!!!!!
Wade and Zoe really love each other so I was sad that he cheated on her. He knows it was wrong and stupid and he will trying to win back her trust. The acting was top-notch...you could see Wade's guilt and Zoe's pain while they were looking at each other across the altar...then she tells him "I know" as they start to walk off. I hate that the writers broke them up this way so they better have a great reunion down the road. They have too much chemistry together to ever be with anyone else for any length of time. Love the show. Where's Brick?
Actually Yvonne, you're not the only one to want George and Zoe together, I do too. I know I'll get hated on this fansite for saying it (people are really passionate about Zoe and Wade) but I'd like the writers to go there since I'm a Scott Porter fan. They haven't had the chance to try them together so I'd like the writers to give them a chance.

I was happy though for the Lemon/Annabeth reunion! Love these two and Annabeth is really growing on me. She's a good friend and is good for Lemon.
How cute were Tom and Wanda? I want more of them.
I too was disappointed by Wade's actions, but I don't agree it was out of character. He's been known to be insecure and afraid of success, so he sets himself up for failure. Sleeping with the girl was probably his way of sabotaging himself and his relationship. I like his character but let's not pretend he's the most well-adjusted and sane character on this show. He's been evolving, but he's still the same guy with the intimacy issues who cheated on Tancie. I think this mistake was necessary for him to realize what he loses by sabotaging himself. I don't think it's the end of Zoe/Wade, but I do believe Wade still has issues to work through before he can commit to Zoe. Plus, they have to keep that triangle going!
Am I the only one who wants Zoe & George back together??
I'm pretty disappointed that the writers had Wade cheat on Zoe to break them up. It's been stated by quite a few people in previous posts, but it definitely seemed as though the writers have been headed this direction all season by creating ridiculous problems between the two. At any rate, W/Z were the main (only) reason I watch this show -I'm not sure how much longer I'll be sticking around.
WOW! What were the writers thinking??? Didn't make any sense that Wade would cheat on Zoe after falling so hard for her just a short time ago. It's so early into their relationship-doesn't make any sense. It would have made a lot more sense for Wade to have broken up with Zoe because he felt like he wasn't good enough for her (Not to mention, it would allow for the happy reunion a few episodes up the road!) Super disappointed in the decision to end the W/Z relationship and in that manner, not sure I'll have any desire to watch HoD if Zoe starts dating George.
While I absolutely HATED what happened between Wade and Zoe, I still thoroughly enjoyed the show! (as tears are flowing down my cheeks whilst I'm typing this comment). The acting in this show is so refreshing and phenomenal, that emotion they bring is superb. Though we may disagree with their plotline, we can definitely agree on the fact that this sets up several more seasons to go in the future where Zade can be reborn.
This episode was awful, just beyond horrifying. Right now, I hate the writers with the heat of 10,000 suns. Yes, the cheating was OUT OF CHARACTER for Wade. Just a plot point to break up the couple we love so much. I sincerely hope it doesnt hurt the ratings. I mean, I know I am not interested in watching.
To see the characters be OUT of character and do things the viewers know they would never do?
Why would I want to see that?
The writers were very stupid having Wade cheat, he is a favorite character why do you want us to hate him?
I am too upset to write anything other than dribble right now.. I better go compose myself. I will NOT be watching next week. Stupid, dumb writers!
Well, the break-up was poorly executed but inevitable (thankfully, I hope and believe their eventual reunion is equally inevitable but hopefully will be developed better). And the self-sabotage isn't 100% OOC for Wade, if we're perfectly honest. Also entirely predictable: George rushing to defend Z's honor; I think we can all see where that's heading. (Although the rest of George's behavior this ep was completely bizarre and made no sense. Kept waiting for it to be revealed that the other lawyer drugged him or something. I wish they would figure out how to write him better and consistently.)
Tom and Wanda are a great couple, and I love Annabeth and Lemon's and Lavon and Zoe's friendships. That will have to be enough for me for now.
Didn't like the majority of this episode. Did like Debra Jo Rupp as Wanda's mom. She was great. Liked Tom and Wanda's wedding. It was very cute. I knew the Wade/Zoe breakup was coming too. Of course I found out last Wednesday after reading the spoilers on E! Online.
I'd like them to get back together but something tells me if they do, it won't be this season. They better hope people don't start leaving because of this breakup. I could see it. I'm extremely mad and sad at the breakup and I teared up when they did. Zoe didn't deserve what he did to her. Nice to see Tansy and Zoe being civil to each other.
The writers better worked some miracles because I know how people get into shows because I've been one of them. When Gossip Girl postponed getting Chuck and Blair together in season 2, I was so upset I didn't go to work the next day. I know it's just a show but that's how into it I was. If they don't work some sort of miracle, I could see the show ending with just two seasons. Reall
Lauren,.... my thoughts exactly. Not looking forward for what's to come and I really loved this show and W/Z. I'm not quitting though. Let´s hope the writers make some sense after this.
I didn’t like this episode much, at all. There were parts that were great. IE; Tom and Wanda. George is so great. And so glad Lemon and AnnaBeth Made up... But Zoe and Wade breaking up, even though I knew it was coming. Bothered me more than I even thought it would. It's an hour later and I'm actually still bummed out. call me a dedicated fan. Wade had evolved so much and for him to take such a step backward seems so out of character for him now. I just think it was a bad move on the writers part to do this so early on in their relationship. I think they could possibly lose some viewership. Hopefully that’s not the case, but I’m honestly not looking forward to what’s to come with them apart, not because of the love relationship, but their scenes together and chemistry were one of a kind on this show. It’s going to be tough to watch. Hopefully it all works out by the season finale. Quite a bummer of an episode.
