It’s Complicated: Zoe (sort of) Makes Her Choice, Hart of Dixie “The Big Day”
I don’t know what I was expecting, but it was definitely not that.Â I’ve been a Zoe/Wade fan since the beginning. They don’t seem to have too much in common, but they’ve got a crazy amount of chemistry and I like that. I get why George is better for her in so many ways – they enjoy the same things, they can talk about almost anything. But there’s something about Zoe that makes Wade a better man. He finally seems to be getting his life together and I think it’s partly because of Zoe. And I think Zoe would get a lot out of being with Wade. So when Zoe’s power outage invitation got Wade to her door, I was excited. I thought this would be the start of something great.
And then Zoe’s doorbell rings and it’s George on her doorstep. Even if she hadn’t answered it – like Wade wanted her to – they both would’ve known in the morning about George and Lemon’s canceled wedding. What does it all mean? Let’s review.
George and Lemon. I thought George’s mania during his wedding day was kind of cute. It’s usually Lemon who’s the crazy one, so I thought it was kind of funny that she somehow transferred the crazy to George – at least for the day. I honestly thought George had forgiven Lemon (although I thought it happened too fast) and I expected a wedding despite the bad weather. When George finally called it off I have to admit I loved it when Lemon punched him. George should’ve realized he wasn’t ready, whether or not Zoe was staying in town. I think I’m going to like Lemon more now that she’s not with George. We’ll see.
Wade and Zoe. I have not been enjoying Wade’s behavior towards Zoe lately. He has every reason to be upset with her, but not to hate her. I think Wade was/is in love with her and Zoe was blind not to see that. But I appreciate that she was making an effort to make things right and I love that they got trapped in that barn together. I’m glad their makeout session didn’t get very far because it was important for Zoe to invite Wade into her life. He was getting ready for the wedding when she had the brilliant idea to make coffee with her fancy new machine. Her invitation couldn’t be clearer and I know I was happy when he showed up at her door.
George and Zoe. I was surprised to see George at Zoe’s door, but I understand his need to see her immediately and tell her his wedding was off. I don’t like that Zoe let George kiss her, but I understand that she was so surprised that she might have just been going with the flow. George thinks he’s got a future with her and I think he’s probably right.
The aftermath. Even though Wade claimed sleeping with Zoe would get her out of his system, I don’t believe that for a second. He’s in love with her. He was downplaying his feelings just in case Zoe rejected him again. And he seems to think a role in the hay with him is a way good for Zoe to get over George? I know guys will say almost anything to get a girl in bed, but even I don’t believe that. Now that George is available I think Zoe will want to make things work with him. She’s in love with him and George told Lemon he’s in love with Zoe. Poor Wade. He deserves to be with someone who wants him for who he is and how he can make them feel. I think he and Zoe were embarking on something wonderful, but there’s no way that’s going to happen now. I mean, I’m hopeful but I’m not holding my breath.
- I like where Lavon and George are right now. That Lavon pitched in to help George get his wedding in order was huge and when George needed a shoulder to lean on, Lavon was there for him. The wedding didn’t happen, of course, but that’s not Lavon’s fault.
- Lemon and Annabeth have it out. Lemon thinks Annabeth singing the praises of singledom is ruining her wedding day, when in reality Annabeth is just trying to be alright with her suddenly single status. Lemon’s going to need Annabeth now that she’s suddenly single too so I’m glad they cleared the air.
Hart of Dixie returns this fall for season 2.
