Hart of Dixie Review: Back to the Beginning

at .  Updated at . Comments

This began as quite the boring episode of Hart of Dixie. But it found its footing with an ending that was sure to make all Zade shippers happy.

When Annabeth's parents come in, they have a hard time letting go of Lavon, which finally pushes our beloved AB over the edge on Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 20

Just as things couldn't heat up more, Shelby pops into town and begs for Brick to take her back.

After seeing Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 19, I had enough of Lavon Hayes. Since his breakup with Annabeth, he has been throwing himself too many pity parties an,d to top things off, he had the audacity to act like a jealous ex-boyfriend.

The simple fact is this: Lavon broke Annabeth's heart when he said she wasn't the love of his life. He is the reason the relationship ended and, because of this, he has no right whatsoever to act the way that he has been.

To make matters worse, Annabeth's parents said they couldn't be mad at him. What is that about? This guy shattered your daughter's heart into a million little pieces because he didn't love her enough. How can they be all buddy buddy with him?

I didn't get it and I didn't like it. The only positive outcome of this scenario was Lavon confessing to her parents that AB deserved someone great and who could love her the way she deserved. Lavon, was that so hard?

Hopefully we can all get past this and start new because his character cannot stay decent if this version of him continues. It's demeaning and it's dreadful; awful and atrocious. Not much good has come out of this for Lavon.

On the plus side, my favorite ex of Brick returned in her usual dramatic fashion. Shelby not only brought back the desperation, but her adorable new daughter. I cannot say I was surprised to see Shelby want Brick back, as she has done this multiple times in the past.

Now that they've come to peace with their on/off relationship, will Shelby return to Bluebell again? My guess is... how can she not?

Elsewhere, Wade and Lemon were paired together while George and Zoe were up to no good. I had a few worries and revelations while watching these two pairings interact.

First off, Lemon straight up called Wade out for blaming Zoe for his breakup with Vivian. Not only did Lemon stick up for Zoe, she showed Wade that Zoe Hart is the girl who has always had a hold on his heart.

We all have known that Zade has been and will continue to be the core of Hart of Dixie and after some time away from this it seems once again that it is inevitable.

Secondly, I was extremely worried that George and Zoe were going to rekindle their brief and non-epic relationship. There was a moment of doubt but they proved to us all that they are destined to be friends and no more. After all of this time questioning if George was the one for Zoe, they said it themselves: they want to be platonic for a long time.

Their relationship would be easy whereas they both love difficult. Argument settled.

Lastly, the greatest revelation I had is that the writers surprised me big time. Since Hart of Dixie Season 1, I never imagined that they'd put George and Lemon back together. The crazy thing is I really love it, even more than I love the idea of Lavon and Lemon.

It's so surprising because these two characters really are different than their earlier counterparts and I believe these two finally have a shot at an epic romance.

Good things are brewing in Bluebell.

Overall, this episode bored me to tears in the first 40 minutes but the last 20 were worth the wait. The episode is titled "Together Again" and what this means to me is that we are back at the start.

George/Lemon and Zoe/Wade, this where Hart of Dixie began. We're back at the beginning... with a few minor changes, of course.

Who do you want to see get back together first?

I was so happy to see the re-emergence of Tansy's crazy brothers. I used to find them awful, but ever since their mutual mancrush with "Joelle" I can't get enough!! I do hope there is a 3 brother + Joelle reunion episode sometime in the future! I think Lavon's behavior is awful, but I think it's actually realistic, I've seen male friends do this to their ex girlfriends's a lot more then you'd think. They decide for some reason they can't be with her, but they also want her to keep loving them, and don't want her to love anyone else. Insensitive and extremely selfish? Yes. Unplausible. No! I love love love the Wade & Lemon friendship. When you think back to the very first season and how they made reference to when they were in high school together with George all doing pranks together, you have to think, this is a real and long lasting friendship and it's very sweet. These two unlikely characters really look out for each other and its lovely.


I am not sure about AB and lavon this two our so boring together
lavon have more fun with lemon and Ruby AB belong with Davis .
lavon is pertect with lemon love them together and Ruby to bout not AB

I want zoe and george to start dating I like them better the zoe and wade


Finalist there is hope again for zoe and wade! I am so happy that George and zoe are just friends. I am not sure what I think about George and Lemon. I would like to see Lavon and AB together again. I hope that there will be a 4th season so that we can get the good ending!


I just started watching this show and I am on second season! I must say I'm a wade and Zooey shipper, they have that fire and chemistry, the banter they have together will never be boring and that's what u get with George and Zooey, bori g! Hope wade and Zooey get back together, he is this bad boy that I think doesn't think he deserves a girl like Zoe, I hope they get there happily ever after and try again!


Zoe and George belong together! I hope they cancel the show because Zade is awful! I know I will never watch again!

@ Tracy

Good. bye.


I think lavon is right that AB deserved someone that love her the way she deserved because she will never be his true love is always lemon .
you can always see the sparks in lavon and lemon eyes that there still have feel for each-other were there talk with each-other .,,,,,,::::::: hope for a wade and zoe and lemon and lavon WEDDING in season 4


i liked it alot.


I really enjoyed this episode. 5/5 stars from me... and I'm one of the viewers that can easily say this past season has been terrible. These past few episodes however, things are looking up! I enjoyed the Zoe/George storyline and their chat at the end about being friends...reminiscing about the first time they met and easy being neither what they're looking for. They're enjoyable to watch together as friends. Wade and Lemon were and are always equally perfect. I enjoyed AB's storyline and Lavon's. The episode was really, really good. If I had to get picky my pet peeve would be Wade needing to be called out on the fact that just because he said "I love you, Zoe Hart" after he cheated on her doesn't mean SHE broke his heart. It's that huge white elephant in the room that the writers seem to ignore in the hope that we as viewers will also. Anyway, another really good episode!

@ Elle

The part about zoe "breaking wade's heart" is so true!! It's really annoying but overall the episode was good!

@ Elle

IA great episode. I loved callback to being healed and single from 201 when ZG talked. Then saying they don't want easy and after that we see them with people were it isn't easy. I do think Zoe broke his heart when she gave him hope and then sent him that e-mail. Then returning with a new guy and telling him what they had wasn't real. I'm in the camp that thinks two wrongs don't make a right and that just because Wade hurt Zoe, doesn't mean he can't get hurt by something she does/did. I would love if the writers would stop ignoring what he did and have them talk about it. We still have two episodes left though and hopefully a new season to delve into that.


I was glad that this episode took time to add some much needed depth to the core relationships (Wade/Zoey, George/Lemon). Happy to see HOD writers keeping the "main thing" the main thing.

I started to watch this show because of carachters of Zoe and George. I really don't think that Zade (!) is a core of the show. This season was quite a boring one, and I don't see what can be done to improve it. All I can see that writers are trying to artifically connect caracters like Zoe and Wade, because there is nothing else to do. If there is another season, I hope they will have some better solutions
