Hart of Dixie Review: Ballroom Blitz

at .  Updated at .

For those who were hoping for a "Bluebell Does Broadway" episode, well, you sort of got your wish.

However, Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 19 wasn't all tap shoes and harmonizing. Some major drama went down as well.

This episode was titled "A Better Man," but it should've just been called "Between a Rock and a Hard Place." It seemed like people were getting put in the middle of uncomfortable situations all over Bluebell!

Though Tom Long had a dramatic meltdown that left him unable to perform for his very hormonal wife, I'd say that Zoe got the worst of it. Lest we forget that Zoe is still handling a breakup, she was put in the very awkward position of mediating the relationship drama between her ex and her cousin.

The right thing to do would have been to say no. But Zoe is Zoe and she is drawn to drama. Of course, she was going to repeat back to Wade whatever Vivian told her.

Oh there she is, the Edward Snowden of family secrets.

Vivian [to Zoe]

To be fair, Vivian handled this breakup like crap. She didn't even have the decency to end things with Wade face to face before she bounced out of town with Charles. I'm not saying she made the right or wrong decision, there is a lot of family and history to consider, I'm just saying that she handled horribly.

I also wish Wade wouldn't blame it on Zoe! There was really nothing she could have done. She tried to remind Vivian of how great Wade was and urged her to discuss the issues with him. Seeing Wade sad just about broke my heart, though.

Elsewhere in Bluebell, George sought some divine intervention to get Lemon off of his mind. He needed a buffer. A hot and wild night with Brianne Howey from Twisted was totally on the menu. Unfortunately, it was also in the Fancie's kitchen when Lemon was about to have it re-inspected.

But, hey, it worked to get George's thoughts Lemon free!

Say that one of your flock had developed feelings for the most spoiled, irritating sheep in town and he wants to rid himself of said feelings.


Lastly we had the Owls vs. the Belles. After Lavon's Annabeth ambush on Hart of Dixie Season 3 Episode 18, the Belles decided it was time to stand up for their leader. They sang a rejection letter to the Owls about not performing for the Mayor's Roast.

When Lavon accused Annabeth of something YET AGAIN, Annabeth decided she would stoop to his level and plan a "Head of the Belles Roast" for the same night. Both performances were solid and I'm glad it wasn't a Cricket and Stanley duet. We all know that could have happened...

So who had the better performance: The Owls or the Belles?

That thinking crease is making a rare appearance on your forehead, so what's going on?

Zoe [to Wade]

C'mon I know times are tough, but you're Lavon Hayes. Two superbowls, four pro bowls; every time you get knocked down you get right back up.
