Over the next couple of weeks I am going to be taking a look back at season 2 of Hart of Dixie.
The show became more of an ensemble show in the second season instead of focusing on mainly Zoe’s journey and how everyone reacted to her. I loved that we got to see all of the characters become people in their own right and have journeys that sometimes had nothing to do with Zoe. Season 2 saw a lot of growth for some of the characters and some stumbled. How did they all fair?
George: I found myself really coming to like George in season 2. The writers made great use of Scott Porter’s excellent comedic timing, and we got to see a more relaxed George. There were a few times that I felt like they really didn’t know what to do with him earlier in the season. The scene with Brick where they both discussed what they had lost as a result of the George breaking things off with Lemon was really touching. As much as I liked the new funnier George, I would still like to learn a bit more about George. I’m really hopeful that we’ll see more growth and depth to George in the next season.
Brick: It was a welcome change to see Brick as more than just a doctor and father in season 2. Brick was still very much a protective father which was evident when he gave George hell for leaving Lemon at the altar and daring to show up at the office to woo Zoe the very next day. And Brick had to learn how to cope without having to rely on Lemon which gave us some delightful father/daughter moments between Brick and Magnolia. I really enjoyed both of Brick’s relationships with Emily and Shelby. The latter showed us a more light-hearted side of Brick. I want to continue to see Brick have fun next season as well as his role as a doctor and father.
Secondary Characters: What would Hart of Dixie and BlueBell be without the full cast of supporting characters? I really loved that in season 2 the writers expanded on the role of the townspeople and we really got to know some of them beyond them just being there in the background. In the case of AnnaBeth it really paid off, and she became an integral part of the storyline. These characters really help to make BlueBell come alive and be that place we all dream of visiting.
What were some of the highlights of each characters’ journey in season 2? What were some of the low points? Where would you like to see the characters go in season 3?
