Whew. Big improvement over last week, which is good, because I was JUST ABOUT to call it quits. Plus, it looks like this week’s story is actually going to continue into next week’s, which I think is good. Also, it didn’t hurt that there was TONS of Wade. So let’s talk!
This week’s town event was some stupid race … I don’t know. It seemed to mostly involve building shit, which I’m actually really good at, so I guess it’s good for those chumps that I wasn’t eligible for entry (not being a Bluebell resident and whatnot). Also, I would cut a bitch (and climb a building) for five grand right now.
Wade was also in it for the money, which he wanted to put toward opening his own bar. Zoe was actually cool about it and supportive, but in all other ways, she was, again, The Worst*. She’s just so insensitive to everyone around her, and I kind of forgive her of not understanding Wade, because a lot of that is his fault, but when she’s such a shit to Lavon, I cannot handle it. Plus, she made EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN THING about her this week, which, AGAIN. Shut up, Zoe.
*Still not as bad as Mr. Shue.
I don’t know. While I’m not a fan of the whole George and Zoe thing, I’m even more not a fan of making Zoe horrible. I mean, is it so much to ask for the CW to have a show where the main female character doesn’t suck so much ass? UGH. And while we’re on the topic of George … I still just don’t get it. I understand Lemon–they’ve been together a long time, they were engaged, she feels guilty … I do get it. Even though I think she’s a dumbass for not picking Lavon in the first place.
And again, Lavon wins for most awesome for having a group therapy session where everyone sits around writing in notebooks about why they shouldn’t be with who they’re pining after. (Also, Lemon hates snuggling. Hee!)
I actually really liked Tansy in this episode. It freaks me out a little that she and Wade look like brother and sister, but at this point, she’d be so much better for him than Zoe, right? Although his scenes with Zoe were both hot and breaking my heart. Not usually at the same time. But he was just so … hopeful, and into it. Like he thought he was getting his second chance, and he wasn’t gonna fuck it up this time. Man, it killed me. Don’t hate me, but I kind of feel like Wilson Bethel is both too good for this show, but also completely perfect for the spirit of this show. Basically, I think the show needs him more than he needs the show.
George and Lemon … let’s not talk about it. Well, you can if you want, in the comments, but I’m not gonna.
The minor characters in this episode were pretty goddamn delightful–Rose and clueless Frederick were cute, but Tom and Wanda are probably my favorite couple on this show now. So cute and weird and awkward.
As for how the whole episode ended up, I liked it. I don’t actually think that it’s Zoe’s fault that Rose’s appendix burst and I don’t think that being on a date had anything to do with it (unless making out makes your appendix rupture–is that a thing?). But I like that there’s starting to be some consequences for Zoe being an inconsiderate bitch–she hurts people’s feelings, she can’t hang out with her friends, and things are just going generally shitty. That’s realistic to me. And George kind of … softening on his stance toward Lemon–even though I don’t think they’ll end up together or at least go through with the wedding right now, that felt realistic too. So I’m actually kind of excited for next week. I KNOW, RIGHT? Yay!
What did you guys think of this episode? Better than last week for you, or about the same? Favorite moments? Quotes? Things I missed? Thoughts on the general goings on? Let’s talk about it in the comments!
