This week’s episode was an emotional tidal wave and washed us away with all its grace. Family, businesses, friendship, love were some of the themes approached in a very well organized episode with a lot of twists and turns that are already Hart of Dixie’s signature move. Let’s begin…
Zoe, Joel and the Wilkes Family
Joel and Zoe are looking of their own house when he discovers that Zoe does not know her family (the Wilkes’ side) that well and he instantaneously begins to push Zoe towards a meeting with them. Despite all of this it takes a lot of perseverance and several viewings of Dolphin Tale to finally make Zoe recognize she wants to have a family and feel loved by a group of people that will always protect her and her beliefs.
If this wasn’t Hart of Dixie maybe Zoe would directly approach a member of her family as quick as possible and try talking to him/her but we are watching HOA after all and that’s not really Zoe’s style of approaching her problems, is it? Of course not, so she solves her problems with the only method she always uses, by creating more problems. She invites Joel to crash an eight-year-old party so she can meet all her family at once. That, obviously, doesn’t go as planned and she ends up lying about her identity and turning Joel into the party entertainer, causing him to masquerade as a magician.
After that early bump everything goes nice and easy, the Wilkes family feels warm and Zoe really tries to fit in. But all of that crumbles and falls after she reveals her true identity and her cousin sends her away after telling her that nobody in that family really likes her. I understand that they tried to get in touch with her early and she didn’t seem to care but their (and specially her cousin’s) reaction to her need to fit in was just too much and unnecessary.
In the end a true positive thing that happened was that I finally started to see Joel as sweet, caring and understanding boyfriend so maybe when he goes away, if he goes, I will… I don’t know… miss him.
Lemon, Businesses and knowing what we really want
I always thought that Lemon really fits in the business lady character and now somebody outside of her personal sphere recognizes that as well. In this episode Lemon faces the opportunity to buy Fancy’s when the old owner thinks about retiring.
It’s true that in the end it didn’t work out but for me it was a good experience because now I know that she is not completely satisfied with what she has at the Rammer Jammer and that Wade can be a truly understanding and kind guy even when he is not acting with some sort of sexual intentions lying in the background.
Annabeth, Lavon and Family Tradition
You all know that AB is my favorite character in Hart of Dixie. I’m really thrilled that they finally recognize that as well so I really have to say that the writers are doing a terrific job deepening her character and making her a more loveable person.
This week was really important for her and Lavon because her parents finally knew about their relationship and AB had to struggle not to be upset with them when they started pushing to far by saying that Lavon needed to step up and propose. It was really hurtful watching her struggle with her feelings and when she finally told everything to Lavon it was like a weight out of our hearts just so another (an heavier one) could replace it.
I’m rooting for their relationship to move forward but I really don’t know how Lavon will react to all of this but I really hope that everything works out for the best.
George, Lynly and being awkwardly in love
Oh Lynly, Lynly, Lynly… What a change you had. If weeks ago I hated her, today I’m awkwardly in love with her character. She is back in business with George but this time without all the breaking-legs, ruining-life kind of threats up their heads. The feeling they are experiencing now seems to be a true one and I really like the interactions that happen between those two. Although I still don’t know how Lavon will react to the news I can see a future for their relationship, let’s hope for the best.
Finish Line Thoughts
Family seemed really important in this episode, do you think that Joel’s promise is true and we are seeing his family any time soon? I have to admit that would be a humongous step and could make me like his character even more.
Brick’s still missing since the episode from two-weeks ago if you see him please call me.
Annabeth finally put her feelings out to the world (Lavon) to see. I don’t know how this will end but I really hope they stick together because they seem happier that way and they are one of the truest and believable couples of the series.
What did you think of this week’s episode? Do you think the Wilkes with make another appearance and finally make amends with Zoe (or vice-versa)? Do you think that Lemon is leaving the Rammer Jammer any time soon? What are your predictions to the AB-Lavon situation? Do you believe that George Tucker + Lynly=Healthy relationship? Share your thoughts in the comments, they exist for that, and don’t forget to tune in Monday for another episode of Hart of Dixie.
