Hart of Dixie - Episode 3.05 - How do you like me now? - Review

This week on Hart of Dixie, Zoe tried to convince the townspeople that she's meant to be with Joel...and Lemon tried to convince them that her last gentleman caller, Peter, actually exists!  Some reflections on what went down...

Zoe and Joel are basically happy, but of course Zoe can't really relax in this relationship or she'd have to face the fact that it's ultimately doomed.  So this week, in her latest wild bit of desperation, Zoe decided to have Joel go to zip-lining tween girl camp to make the people of Bluebell like him.  This is, of course, despite the fact that Joel is afraid of heights.  Her well-meaning but wrong-headed series of shenanigans whips Joel up into such a confused frenzy that soon he's drunkenly zip-lining, all to prove points that can't really be proven.  

As Wade so eloquently observed, it's funny and misguided that so many Bluebell citizens still ship Zoe/George.  In his heart of hearts, George clearly still has a soft spot for Zoe, as evidenced by his passive-aggressive song.  Meanwhile, many others in town are convinced that the big Lemon/George breakup meant that "Zeorge" are inevitable. This in turn leaves poor Joel feeling rather insulted.  Little does he suspect that it's Wade for whom Zoe still has feelings.

How utterly perfect was Wade's coy little speech to Zoe about how she's still in love with him?  I think this was the best scene in the show so far this season.  Even though Wade goes with the flow and hangs back throughout every one of Zoe's crazy avoiding-the-truth tactics, he's still smugly and sexily aware of her real, albeit suppressed, emotions.  Zoe's inability to snark back at that moment further shows the truth of his words, even though it's easy enough for her to play it off as if his assertion is not worth acknowledging.

Lemon had to deal with the fact that Peter left right after their magical night together, and now she feels unresolved.  Though she concludes that what they had might have just been one of those perfect, fluke kinds of evenings, I hope that he returns.  Their chemistry was awesome.

Meatball's declaration of love, complete with a song and a big, calendar-cover kiss, was hilarious.  Lemon's come such a long way from her repressed, prudish season one self, as now she's able to nonchalantly resolve the remaining Meatball issues in a public forum.  Once that calendar cover would have thrown her into an unrecoverable state of humiliation, and now she can mostly laugh it off. 

Lynly just keeps popping up, determined to win George over.  While she was more likable this week than she had been in previous episodes, she still doesn't seem mature enough for George.  This character seems more like an amusing time-filler than a serious romantic prospect for the town lawyer.  However, we'll see where the writers take this storyline!

What did you think of this week's turn of events in the Joel/Zoe/Wade triangle, and Bluebell's remaining Zoe/George inclinations?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
