Hart of Dixie Review: Renaissance Fever

at .  Updated at . Comments

When Lemon is forced to choose between Carter and Enrique, Lavon comes up with a unique way for her to choose. Well... for fate to choose.

As all plans go in Bluebell, this didn't quite turn out how it was originally drawn up.

On Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 15, Joel announces that Warner Brothers bought his book and will be turning it into a movie and that he'll be finally reaching his inevitable departure from the series.

Looking back at the episode, there are three key plot points that were entertaining and not so interesting.

FIRST, Wade was trying to win over little Harley by stealing the world's most adorable goat. As cute as this was, I couldn't have cared less. Only because I, too, am starting to get tired of Wade and Vivian.

I think that the writers are trying too hard to make Wade nice again and they're trying to butter us up before Zade, more than likely, reunites.

That said, it doesn't mean  I want Wade and Zoe back together; I'm just tired of the same od' same old.  I'm ready for something a bit more dramatic than animal-napping.

SECOND, there was another Zoe and Joel debacle that I also didn't care too much about. However, the great thing about Joel and Zoe's relationship is that they don't fight every episode like Wade and Zoe did during Hart of Dixie Season 2

You see, Joel is adorable and sweet. He treats Zoe like she should be treated and they mesh well together.

Now that Joel is going to LA with his new movie, he is finally making his exit from Bluebell. I may not be happy about him leaving, but at least the writers are making him exit for a good reason other than Zoe breaking his heart.

I have been afraid since the season premiere that they'd go with the "Zade" route to push him out of Dixie. It's a relief that he will leave for his career not because of his relationship.

The THIRD and most interesting storyline was Lemon and her two hot boyfriends. If it were me, I'd choose Enrique because, come on, who doesn't love a romantic Latin man? Well, maybe I'd choose Carter because he's safe and rich. He also has a delicious smile.

Oh man, it's no wonder Lemon fainted! I don't blame her for kicking them both out on the curb, that's a decision way too hard to make.

Speaking of, I do believe that my favorite pairing on this show is cannon once again. That's right, I'm talking about Lemon and Lavon. After three long seasons of hints and a few flashbacks of their short but intense love affair, I have always wanted more!

Unfortunately, it's at the cost of broken-hearted Annabeth... yet I can't stop myself from being excited about where this could go. As Lavon stated, the battle between her lovers would prove who she should be with. I agree with you Lavon... for once this season.

Also, Lavon has the most lavish breakfast buffets. He had scones, muffins and Danishes all laid out on his counter like he was going to be feeding the whole town of Bluebell. I love it and I also want to come over for breakfast.

Overall, this episode was okay. The only part that I was really into was Lemon's story and it seemed to help the episode flow as it was lacking in most other areas. At this point, Hart of Dixie needs to step up its game especially, with shows like Arrow setting the bar for The CW.

The great thing about Dixie is that it has a lot of great characters and potential to keep going. The only problem, the ratings are not reflecting our heartfelt show, so keep watching live and keep using social media to talk about it. Let's keep Bluebell up and running!

Do you want Joel to stay?

When they decided to write in guys for Lemon why didn't they bring back Robert Buckley. He had great chemistry with Jamie King. And who doesn't love a little Robert Buckley action?!?

@ Christina

He is coming back soon.

Seriously who is voting Joel to stay lol. After he is gone the main cast can finally interact again. Zoe has been isolated from the rest of the cast all season and in particular the last few episodes. I don't think the knight was George. I think we'll see who it was in a few episodes from now. And ZW might have fought a lot but they had passion and chemistry. Something ZJ doesn't. You say it got old quick with ZW fighting - (btw most times it is banter and has been going on since the pilot - it's one of the reasons so many people ship them) - but ZJ's near conflict free sibling relationship has been going on for 15 episodes. You say you aren't bored with that?? The writers clearly wants to taint every single thing that was unique to ZW. The cookies, the sex scene, the rain check and now the goat. Next episode it will be smelling the shirt while lying in bed. I get they might be trying to completely break them down before building them up, but all they are really doing is angering and alienating the majority of their fans.

@ Fogh

Oh my god THANK YOU! Haha I was reading this review and I was like "umm does this journalist seriously like Zoe/Joel?" like i'm honestly surprised that anyone would like Joel and Zoe together. They're the most boring couple ever. They literally have no chemistry whatsoever. Why do you think crazy Earl thought they were brother and sister? Isn't that enough proof that they're so lame together? lol. I'm just excited now that he's gone and Zoe and Wade will be getting back together, most likely, by the end of the season!

@ Sarah

I'm not necessarily a Zoe/Wade fan but I NOT a Zoe/Joel fan at all. Seriously agree... Worst chemistry yet for this show!


SO happy to see Joel gone! Now all we need is Vivian to leave! I think Wivian is cute, but it is saying something when Wade is dating Zoe's cousin.. My biggest question though is: Who was the mystery knight? I think it may be George based on the voice but I hope we find out!


The best parts of this episode were seeing George stride confidently into the courtroom, Zoe and Lemon in a medical consultation, Wade talking to the baby goat, a mysterious, helmet-wearing man buying Annabeth a drink, and Joel going Hollywood.
