Hart of Dixie Review: The Hanukkah Miracle

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The 2013 finale of Hart of Dixie Season 3 was filled with laughter and heart-warming moments that made it the best episode of the season thus far.

And why is that?

On Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 8, Zoe finally was FINALLY accepted by the Wilkes family while Tansy and Shelby made their triumphant return to Bluebell with some reveals along the way.

An Unhappy Hanukkah

Let's take a second to discuss the kiss between Zoe and Wade.

First, I'm surprised it took this long to happen. Second, I am pissed she is going to tell Joel - regardless of his relationship with Wade, it's lying. Third, I still want Zoe/Wade together in the end.

Did she enjoy their kiss? Obviously. Otherwise she wouldn't want it to remain a secret. The same goes for Wade. In conclusion, with the addition of the Vivian/Wade dynamic, Joel won't last much longer in Bluebell.

During the hour, so many other great things happened that I LOVED. To wit:

  • Shelby returned, very pregnant, I may add. Sadly, not only for Brick but us viewers as well, he's not the father. Was I the only one really excited to think he was going to be dad again? This would have been so great!
  • Tansy is back! How do we know she's staying? She took a job at the Rammer Jammer, no thanks to Wade. I love Tansy and the best thing she can do is drive a wedge between Linley and George.

Nothing made me happier than her return because this will hopefully mean Linley will leave Bluebell! The only problem she will cause is this: when she helps end the relationship between George and Linley, Lavon will be very upset with George. Sigh.

  • Wade Kinsella and Vivian Wilkes as a new couple! Do I love it or do I love it!? This is wonderful! Will it make Zoe jealous? Absolutely! Will it bring Zade back together? Who knows, maybe? There are so many possibilities with these love triangle.
  • Joel and his Nanny were so cute. I hope she comes back, especially for Brando's sake.
  • The Wilkes have accepted Zoe Hart! I am so happy for Zoe! For once, she finally has a family that is loving, caring and traditional as families go. I look forward to the addition of the Wilkes.

Elsewhere, Lemon Breeland is leaving for awhile to take care of Grandma Breeland. (In case you didn't know, the real reason is because Jaime King had her son, and will most likely be away for a couple of episodes to care for her newborn, James.)

To be honest, Grandma Breeland deserved to break her hip. She looked like she was about to burst when she was yelling at Lemon and Brick. She is crazy! The Breeland's need to have her admitted somewhere to get the help she truly needs. Isn't she great, though?

Overall, this episode was thoroughly enjoyable. It was light, it was fun and, most importantly, I ended the installment with a smile. Dare I say, it reminded me of what made Hart of Dixie good in the first place?

Tonight was an episode like we used to see during Hart of Dixie Season 1. It really was a Hanukkah Miracle.

These opinions...: / if the show goes down these roads and continues to be nothing like season one - I'm out. Crappy writing is crappy writing and pulls in a minor target audience who are willing to forgive it. The show has definitely lost that wow factor it had about it in season one due to the lack of Zoe and Wade chemistry. The actors who play the characters Wade, Lemon and AB are the few who manage to make the writing of their characters their own, and keep the show interesting.

I think it's a bit of a stretch to say this episode resembles the quaint intrigue that attracted me to Bluebell but it did have its moments. Unfortunately my attention deficit is rearing its ugly head and I'm simply losing interest. All this relationship swapping is making me dizzy and I miss the endearing medical dramas of the first season. The second season kept me entertained with the developing of all the small town characters. I miss Tom and Wanda and would like to know more about some of the other whimsical characters. I think of all the possibilities that Zoe and Wade had in this colorful small town and it just makes me sad. Oh well I will have to find another guilty pleasure. Something tells me it will not be that difficult.

I like George and Linley. Their scenes are the ones I look forward too…as well as Lavon and AB.

I get it. We need Zoe and Wade to Not be together right now in order to keep the show going, and to help them grow and mature so that when they Do get together, it sticks for good, right? I certainly hope so. The first two seasons were full of character, quirkiness, humor, wit, and charm. Season three so far has been more about family, values, maturity, and 'moving on.' Not loving these changes, personally. I also miss the random musical numbers, like Tom and Wanda's engagement or Wade and George belting it out. One plus this season has been the relationship development between Lavon and Annabeth. Hope to see where that goes. Joel was fun for a while, but he and Zoe don't have the right chemistry, especially after seeing how passionate and perfect Zoe and Wade are for each other. I'm just not feeling it this season. Maybe it's just me?

Enjoyed the episode and agree it was one of the best this season. We got to see a lot of the likeable cast members and that great chemistry banter with Z and W. Thrilled the writers gave W a new love interest and better again a cousin of Z.

Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 8 Quotes

Linley: So your ex-fiance's father dated your ex-girlfriend?
Lemon: That was before he dated his best friend's ex-wife.

George, there are more important things than your carnal pleasure.

Lemon
