Zoe struggled to hang onto New York with her deep love of the little town of Bluebell, all the while, trying to win over the community once again. You know what, this episode reminded me of the old Dixie before all of the heartbreak. It was very enjoyable.
First off, Joel? Who the hell is Joel? Why is he here? Am I suppose to care about him? A new life, in five months? Well, at least he's cute. Unfortunately, he doesn't stand a chance with Zoe Hart. He obviously doesn't know the truth about Wade, which will be a big blowout.
Seriously, is anyone else shocked that she lied to her new boyfriend? Yeah, not me.
Elsewhere, Rose made an appearance! I love her! I am so glad she showed up! I really did miss her character. She was heartbroken that Zoe missed her 16th birthday, too. Zoe, can you please stop hurting people? It might make life suck a little less for you.
It seems that was the central theme of tonight's premiere. Everyone's pissed at Zoe, like a flashback to Hart of Dixie Season 1. Except Wade, Lavon and Annabeth, that is.
Speaking of A.B. didn't you hear the good news? Hart of Dixie made Kaitlyn Black a series regular! Rejoice for a lot more of this wonderful young lady.
Moving on: the first person Zoe saw as she entered back into Bluebell was, of course, Wade Kinsella, who had no regrets. Is this another version of Wade I can love again? I surely hope so. After the cheating debacle it has been hard for me to find a way to like Wade, specifically Wade with Zoe.
But of course Wade and Zoe had to pull an all-nighter while Zoe treated his dad. Oh, Earl!
Elsewhere, Lemon is having secret sex. With Meatball. I repeat, with Meatball. This is probably my favorite thing that Lemon Breeland has ever done. It is so out of character in the best of ways. She's sleeping with Meatball, wearing her dress inside out. Girl, you're a hot mess. I love it! As Cricket would put it, Lemon is definitely getting some squeeze.
During Hart of Dixie Season 2, when Lemon and Wade starting hanging out more and more, I didn't think I'd like it. It seems like, in the five-month absence, they became closer. The fact that Lemon would associate herself in a "fake relationship" with him to make Zoe feel bad says a lot about her character.
Here's my pressing question: how long will these two be able to keep up their relationship scam? I do like the idea of Wade and Lemon having each other's back, but the repercussions may be more extensive. Maybe not? I'll sit back and see where this goes. My money will always be on Zade.
Another thing I liked about tonight's episode was Tansy came back, even for a brief scene. I hope that Tansy continues to play a role in George Tucker's life because, honestly, those two were perfect for each other.
Lenley? Yeah, I'm with A.B. on this one, when is she going to go?
Overall, I think the season premiere was a set up for something good. I have hope that it'll be much better than the previous. Like I've always said in the past, this show has the potential to be something worth fighting for.
