Hart of Dixie Review: Hiccups

at .  Updated at . Comments

As Hart of Dixie Season 3 comes to a close, we are left with quite the open ending. 

Thankfully, there's more action in Bluebell to come in 2015 because after Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 22, I couldn't get enough.

When Zoe, Lemon, Annabeth and Crickett get the hiccups as a result of hiding their true feelings, they have to come to terms with making the right decision. 

With Wade on the brink of leaving, a familiar face returns to Bluebell to convince him and Zoe that they are meant for each other. All the while, Lemon gives into Grandma Breeland's request to go onto the "desperation cruise."

Just as everyone seemed to reconcile and bring good news, an old love triangle emerges once again. 

After viewing this finale, I can honestly say that I have faith that Hart of Dixie can still be restored to its former glory. We all know Hart of Dixie Season 2 was a rough ride, but I look back and I cannot believe how much has changed in just one season. 

For the first time in a very long time, I have found myself wanting Zade back together. I previously didn't think that Wade could recover from the character blow he took after cheating on Zoe, but I am glad to see I was wrong. People can change and do deserve a second change. 

That said, who knew that Joel would return to Bluebell and be the voice of reason... or Lemon for that matter?!? I was shocked to see Joel back - and I loved it! I missed him very much. The fact that he is the one that convinced Wade to stay for Zoe is remarkable.

[To Zoe] Don't let Wade leave without telling him how you truly feel. Who knows, maybe he feels the same way... God know why, you're so unpleasant and ugly.


For those of you who said you hated Joel and wanted him to go, what are you saying now? He's the big reason they're going to reconcile.

Not only Joel, but Lemon too. At the beginning of the episode, Lemon called Zoe out on her feelings for Wade, stating that Zoe moved back to set things straight with him... only to end up staying because she loved him. It's very true.

I was happy to see that Zoe worked up the courage to confess to Wade she still loved him. I understand why Wade was hesitant to get back together as he royally screwed it up the first time. We all saw how much he grew with Vivian. Lemon was also right that Wade and Vivian's relationship did bother Zoe.

Speaking of Vivian, we finally got the closure we all deserved. They came to terms with their relationship and Wade didn't want to stand in the way of their family. It was a great end to a great relationship. 

The only problem I had with this finale: Lavon. 

Lavon has been on my last nerve since he broke up with AB. He has been pouty, jealous and nothing but a pain. I used to really love his character, but they've completely ruined him this season.

The all-time low took place when it was revealed he had gone after Lemon. Come on now.

If you would have asked me last season who I wanted Lemon to end up with, I would have said Lavon with no question. However, this is not the case anymore. Lavon does not deserve it and Lemon deserves better. 

To be perfectly honest, there is no one more suited for Lemon than George. This relationship has so much history but, more importantly, it has chemistry. These two are completely different characters now and could really stand a chance together. 

Get out of the way, Lavon. I have a feeling that George just may be the victor in this fight.

Overall, this finale was the best episode of Hart of Dixie Season 3. It was a great way to tie up some loose ends and give us enough to wait until 2015 to get it. Did I mention that Wanda and Tom are having a baby, Annabeth said no to Davis and that Cricket is apparently gay? 

Things surely seem to be brewing in Bluebell - luckily for us, we get to see it all play out next year.

Who do you want to back together in Hart of Dixie Season 4?

no more lavon and AB plz and no more lemon and George plz on season 4
more lemon & lavon and more zoe & wade give the fans what thery wanted to see plz


I love so much that they brought Joel back as a cameo for this episode, and they let him be Zoe's friend. Since the beginning of this season, I couldn't help but love Joel. He is so delightfully neurotic and funny, and out of place, and yet he just works! But I always thought the chemistry with Joel and Zoe was more like brother and sister or very best friends in the world, and I am really happy to see they are still including him in her world more in this way. The fact they could discuss love lives with each other in a way that made you realise they had already sort of ended as friends made it work. When Tom Long nearly burst with excitement about Joel and Don Todd emerging at once it was so adorable! By the way what was up with this whole season 'Don Todd' obsession... is it some craze in America that Australians dont get or is it just a Hart of Dixie thing. Ahhh Wade and Zoe... so endgame! I am not convinced that Lemon should be with George or Lavon. I love them both, but think they are both a bit too cheesy for the new and very awesome character she has become. I actually do like Lavon and AB together. They worked, in a cute cheesy domestic way. I don't really understand how Lavon was all in love with her last season and said Lemon and him had their time and it was in the past, when he could have made that choice, and now he has done such a backturn. Hahah I love that Cricket was the one to come out! Classic moment!! How many months until the next season!??! Addicted to this little escape from reality in Bluebell, Alabama!


I really want to know how many episodes they will have in season 4. I hope they give us a full season with the quality that the episodes have been toward the end of season three and I promise you the ratings WILL return. :)


in season 1 lemon break lavon hart were she choose george to get marry . I think this time lemon will choose lavon over george lemon know that lavon is the one true love in her life and was never george she know that now this time we all see lavon marry his true love lemon this time in season four AB was always lavon Rebound and lemon was the one forever in lavon heart and lavon was always in lemon heart and the writer think that to can wait to have season 4 all ready ,;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;


100% certain that Zoe and wade wil get back together which I 100% support! #1 favorite couple, their chemistry is amazing since the beginning! For georgey boy, I'm not to fond of him... His character .. I just can't quite put my finger to it. Anywho, I really hope lemon&lavon finally end up together in a heartwrenching scenario. No matter how much I think about it , there time together in the beginning was so memorable. It was filled with heart fulfilling connection . Lemon & George felt like a couple who were together because it was comfortable , it fit the picture of the "typical". AB: got a little annoying to me , I like her but then there are times I don't. Still I hope they bring in a character that suits her :) heart of Dixie: I do love how light hearted and sweet this show is , and I'm certainly going to miss it :(


What an amazing/back on track/could do amazing things with the writing from here episode. I'm so glad they gave the show another chance with another season. I just hope to see a full season. If they work hard they could even get themselves out of the Friday time slot if CW want them to.


First Zoe and Wade are my favorite. I wish the episode was left unsaid about whether he was leaving or not! It would have been so suspenseful. As for Lemon..I think we will have to see who she is more compatible with at this point. Lemon and Lavon's story was so cute in the beginning (although it was cheating) but I love how George and Lemon connect. I think that could be really adorable too. So IDK about that I'm sure it will change once the show does. For Crickett, I think that she was covering up for her husband about being gay. They gave many hints that he could be gay (eg. the hairdryer comment, the pilates instructor is special to him.) He has a feminine demeanor so that could also be another hint that he may be. But either way it's a pretty funny twist! I love Crickett. As for AB…I don't know, I loved her and Lavon..so if that ends up happening I'd be happy as well.


I love Lavon and Lemon...they have chemistry. ..the first season is proof of that. Lemon would be an awesome mayors wife. I also love George with Zoe. I hate that they "dumbed" down Georges' cha racter to prop Wade or Zade. I started watching because of George and aZoe....and I don't watch too often anymore. Not sure I'll watch at all unless simething changes.

@ mimi

Don't watch anymore 'cause Zade is (thanks God) endgame!!!!

Drea xoxo
@ mimi

George and Zoe are a prime example of people thinking they "like/love" each other because of their social standings. They both love the idea of each other but when the opportunity was presented they realised it wouldn't work and they were better as friends


They are truly going to kill this show (might be their last season anyway) if they put Zoe and Wade back together. They were great in S2 but that was because of all the quirky things they got up to. What will their relationship be like this time around? Boring is my bet. Zoe and George deserves a go. They are what got us into the show in the first place and they never got a proper chance. Will always be a fan of the show, even stuck by it through the terrible first part of this season because all the other characters kept things going (Lavon & Annabeth especially) but the pairings they are leaning towards now, will make for a pretty boring final season


Am I the only one not rooting for Zade? I didn't like them together last time and I don't like them now. Joel has been so good with Zoe. He balances out her craziness, and I hate that he was always the filler until Zade Act 2. And I still find it horrible that of all the women in Bluebell and surrounding, he had to go and get involved with Zoe's cousin. Really!? I don't care how much he's grown, cos if a guy did that to me in real life, we'd be so foreverover. Wade and Zoe shouldn't be together just becos their respective partners chose something/someone else.

@ Irene

Yes, you probably are- in whole world!!!!!

@ Irene

Seriously, thank god there is another rational human being watching this show.
Joel was the only genuinely good, loyal, loving guy she's met! No secrets, no lies, no emotional manipulation, no immaturity.. just an open, honest dude who genuinely enjoyed *every* aspect of her personality and balanced her out without tearing her down. Perfect.
