It's the end of Bluebell as we know it... or maybe not.
The town of Bluebell did not see the end of days as Annabeth's dream predicted.
Still, that didn't stop everyone from living like it was their last day on earth in Hart of Dixie Season 4 Episode 9.
This was one of the most enjoyable episodes of the season! From start to finish, I was entertained.
The opening scene of Annabeth's dream was great, and Cress Williams was hilarious in it. Annabeth should have never told Crickett about her dream, but I'm glad she did.
The chaos that ensued was fantastic. Every time another omen came true, the townspeople got more out of control.
If ever there was a time to "YOLO", it is now!Tom
How great was the nighttime scene where everyone was gathered in the town square? I was trying to count how many of Tom and Wanda's alpacas were walking around in the background.
The idea of it being the end of the world provided terrific moments that propelled the main characters forward just in time for the finale next week.
Now as much as I like George, it's far fetched to believe that Pamela would give him a job as her manager so quickly and easily. I'll let it slide because this new job finally gives George a chance to leave town. Sometimes I forget that the George we met back in season 1 missed the exciting life he had outside of Bluebell when he lived in New York.
George isn't meant to be in Bluebell forever.
Annabeth has got to be the most supportive, understanding girlfriend on the planet. She encouraged George to follow his dreams without any sign of hesitation.
If this really is our last night on earth, then I want to know that we spent every second of it chasing our dreams.Annabeth
Obviously George will be back for the finale, and I wonder what will go down in his relationship with Annabeth. Maybe they'll find long distance isn't as easy as they thought. Maybe Annabeth will move to Nashville to be with him and finish nursing school there.
Wade was more surprised than I was to discover that Zoe didn't believe in marriage. It's understandable considering how her parents' marriage went.
Still, it was hard to ignore how sweet Wade was. He felt hurt and surprised she wouldn't want to marry him.
Zoe: Since when do you even care about this stuff?
Wade: Since I met you.
Lemon: Zoe, you have to admit that was pretty sweet.
Lavon: If you don't marry him, I will.
I'm glad it was George that helped Zoe realize she wanted to marry Wade. I always saw these two as friends. There was never that romantic spark needed in order for them to ever be a couple.
Their day trip to New Orleans also provided an opportunity for them to share more scenes together before the end of the season. He gave Zoe the advice she needed to understand where Wade was coming from. If anyone understands Wade, it's his best friend.
Zoe: So I don't believe in marriage. You know my parents, theirs was a complete sham so why would I?
George: Because Wade does.
Zoe: But why? We love each other. We're having a baby together. Why do we need some piece of paper to prove it?
George: Because it's more than just a piece of paper, Zoe. I mean we're talking about Wade Kinsella, renowned ladies' man that we're talking about here. Now he wants to stand up in front of everyone he cares about and vow that he will love you and be faithful to you for the rest of his life. Forever. I mean, it's like it's the last stage of his metamorphosis, you know. He wants to show us all just how much he's changed, and that's a pretty damn big deal.
Sadly, Zoe's proposal to Wade got hijacked. I'd love to see Lemon and Lavon get married, but will she find out the truth about his proposal (or lack thereof)?
The look on Lavon's face as Lemon thought he was proposing was priceless. I understand him not coming forward in that moment because she looked so happy.
The preview for next week's finale shows Lemon and Lavon seemingly getting married. Might there be a double wedding though? I'd hate to see Zoe not go through with proposing to Wade like she planned in this episode.
Overall, this episode was terrific in setting up the season (series?) finale. There were so many great pieces of dialogue that I simply could not list them all in this review, so go check them out in the Episode Quotes section.
I'm sad to see this show potentially come to end next week. I have a feeling that if the end of Bluebell is here, then the writers will send everyone off right and happy.
So over to you guys! What did you think of the episode? Were surprised by the proposal mix up? Do you want to see Wade and Zoe get married? What are your predictions for Hart of Dixie Season 4 Episode 10?
