If I could rename this week’s Hart of Dixie I would’ve gone with the “The Filler & the Fake Out.”
Obviously Dr. Zoe Hart can’t leave a show that is centered on the idea of her living in Alabama. No Hart, no Bluebell and we’re talking about a different show here.
Maybe it’s the fact that we knew she wouldn’t really leave, but I couldn’t really get invested in the idea that Zoe wanted to skip town. Despite a few good scenes, I just wasn’t feeling this episode overall.
I do understand that Zoe had a lot of guilt about Rose considering she’s had ice flowing through her veins all of these years. Rose seems to be one of the first people that Zoe genuinely cared about. But Zoe is a strong girl and she couldn’t even stand up for herself to Rose’s mother who blamed her for almost “killing Rose” when all she did was convince her to let her go on a date. How would Zoe know Rose had appendicitis if she wasn’t complaining about it?
Surprisingly I was actually interested in George and Lemon’s storyline this week. Call me crazy, but I wasn’t too surprised to learn that George and Lemon haven’t been getting it on much these past few months. Her failed seduction attempt was funny, but it was their reminiscing that I really enjoyed.
Hearing about how they first got together back in the day and some of their memories gave us a little insight into the life of George and Lemon and what drew them together to begin with.
I would’ve liked to see more of a reaction from Wade about Zoe leaving town before she popped back through the door. He is just as immature with his feelings as she is. Next week’s finale looks like it’s going to make up for this week’s slower episode. What’d you all think?
