Hart of Dixie Review: In a Jam

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Linley and angry Lavon? It's safe to say Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 7 was, unfortunately, centered around two of my least favorite things in Bluebell.

Even though Joel was kidding, George and Linley were outed, while Lavon was worried he wasn't going to win the race; in the end it wasn't those three in the biggest jam, though, it was Brick with the return of a very pregnant Shelby.

Zoe Doesn't Approve

I had no interest in this hour due to the excess amounts of Linley and George. I am still so very disappointed in him and his actions. Every time these two on screen, I look away. It isn't fun or enjoyable for me.

At least Lavon knows now and didn't like finding out about his "sweet little cousin" being taken "advantage" of by George, even though it was Linley who made the first move.

The best part of the episode was the "Jam" argument between Annabeth and Lavon. "If you don't like my Jam" ... "Maybe the Jam was meant to go to the next level" ... "Everything was going fine until you brought you Jam around!"

Next to Lavon being incredibly naive, he is incredibly stupid. Him and AB need to be together - they make each other better and, quite frankly, he can't do much better. Taking it slow? Fine, I'll be okay with this for now... but she deserves better!

Also, how luscious did George's hair look while he was running? That footage could have easily been used in a hair product commercial. But the guy needs a haircut.

Elsewhere, Joel was in his own kind of jam, having issues with writer's block, with Zoe pushing and pushing and pushing some more to get him to write. A little bit controlling, wouldn't you say?

Then Jo-el was kidnapped causing Wade and Zoe to have to team up to get him back. The point of this scene was to show us viewers that these two are so good for each other. I truly love "Zade" and I hope we get them again soon.

Dare I say, I've forgiven Wade for his cheating debacle back in Hart of Dixie Season 2.

Overall, this was a decent episode due to the comedic bits but a terrible one due to the new George and Linley relationship. I don't think I'll ever love Linley but it looks like I'm going to have to get used to her.

I too am beginning to like George and Linley together. Every week it gets better, I think. Now Joel and Zoe---no no no no!!! She treats him like she is his mother. So boring. I do think Joel is a nice guy but I am sorry, just too needy and not for Zoe. I personally do not like how her character is developing this season. Maybe it will be played to show how much she is just trying to not admit she is still in love with Wade. I don't know but it is irritating. I really need to see Wade and Zoe get back together eventually. I am afraid they will put Zoe with George first and hopefully not for long because that will be more episodes of boring. Maybe that is why they are trying to make him look like Wade with the hair and beard. Wade is the guy. I watch just for him.

I said it last week and I'll say it again - Linley is OK! She is smart, attractive and a good match for George I think. I am enjoying her and George together more each week - plus as another poster said 'it keeps him away from Zoe'. Thank you for reviewing.

I agree, the jam metaphor was the best part of the show; some hope that the old "hart" I remember from the first seasons is coming back. I'm trying to be patient with the Zoe/Joel/Wade storyline but it just seems like there is so much not being resolved. Perhaps Joel or someone will finally confront Zoe about her "shallow, snobbish and superior" (as Wade so eloquently put it) attitude. My hope is this will prompt her to face up to the cost of her haughtiness. Don't get me wrong, I love Zoe but it seems as though the very personality flaw she and her beloved Bluebell were working to refine has reared it's ugly head in a big bad way.

Really George? Linly?! I don't care with whom George ended up with but not Linly even if it's a rebound. Linly annoys me. She really needs to go like yesterday. And plus, I don't see the connection between the two. I feel like she's just a way of the writers to add more characters in the story. I am so disappointed with George. I really hope there's a point to this Linly plot.

I don't hate Linly. She is a bit boring but as long as she keeps George away from Zoe, I won't argue.
I do have a huge problem with this season though and it's called Joel. At this point I see him as this really desperate guy who jumps into a relationship with the first cute female in his way and can't see the problems in their dysfunctional relationship.
Does he even know who Zoe is at this point?? I like her, I really do but I can't see how an otherwise rational guy, like Joel, could stay with her after everything she's done to him. After basically putting him an ultimatum to stay in Bluebell, he discovered she hadn't told him about two quite important guys in her life: Wade and George. He learned everything about George from somebody else at a bar and he still hasn't quite been filled in about Wade. How can he still be clueless when basically Zoe was somewhat ready to file for a restraining order against Wade in part of him to keep them away? She obviously still has feelings for two other men! Really likeable guy but why would anyone put himself through this?

I'm there with ya....really have not taken to Linley. She just seems so whiny and immature. I don't get George's attraction to her?
I love Zade and I know they'll get back together. And when that happens, I will feel sorry for Joel. He's a really good guy.

Nooooo - not Shelby! I was so relieved when I thought she was out of the picture.

Weird thing is that as Joel has grown on his bromance with Wade is epic. Wade is Joel's muse and the three redneck bro's were instrumental in breaking his block.

What is there to say about George and Linley that hasn't been said? I literally cringe when their scenes come on: Everytime it's a trainwreck with zero chemistry and her inexcusably bad accent. How do the powers that be let her stay? On a positive note--I'm happy Shelby is back! I like her!
