That’s it. Can we just all admit that Wade and Zoe are the cutest couple on TV right now? They’re freakin’ adorable! And especially in last night’s episode! So much adorableness! In the future I won’t have to go look up cute cat pictures on the internet when I need my cuddly fix, nono, I’ll just re-watch this episode instead!
Happy Halloween everyone!
It’s my favourite holiday and yet I’m currently stuck in a country where nobody cares! I feel truly sad! Which is why I seriously appreciate all these wonderful Halloween episodes of my favourite TV shows. Suburgatory Halloween was pretty darn funny but nothing beats Wade Kinsella dressed as 007. Not even George Tucker dressed as a firefighter (though Scott Porter looked mighty fine in that costume I have to admit!).
So you guessed it right, I loved Hart of Dixie last night. Last season definitely had its hits and misses but this season is just shaping up to be completely awesome. Though I had my doubts yesterday…I really thought the writers were gonna screw us all over in the end there! But more on that in a bit. Just keep on readin’!Halloween fever hit Bluebell and Lavon was super diligent in decorating the backyard. Poor Zoe just kept walking into those fake cobwebs all the time! Nothing completes the walk of shame (though technically no shame in that walk) better than a mouthful of cobweb!
In true scary fashion, Zoe discovers that somebody’s been sleeping in her bed while she was busy sleeping in Wade’s! Since this isn’t Once Upon A Time we can safely assume that whoever slept over wasn’t Goldilocks or the three bears. The mystery deepens when we realise that the bed-musher has also left a sock and a toothbrush in Zoe’s house. She clearly has a stalker though Lavon is not inclined to take it very seriously and just blames it on poor Wade.
Wade has the perfect alibi though: he was literally tied up all night so it couldn’t have been him. Anyone else picturing that scenario in their head? No? Just me?
Lavon is too busy with his campaign to sit around listening to his two best buds sex-talking each other so he runs on out to the town square to give out some candy. Lemon’s southern belles army is diligently helping the campaign and apparently Annabeth has a bit of a crush on the broad-shouldered mayor. I don’t think Lemon likes that very much!
When Tom does a major faux pas and registers the Beaudry’s as voters, celebrating with air hand-guns and everything, disaster strikes!
Turns out the Beaudry’s, a 22-member strong family, are staunch supporters of the Auburn Tigers and not Lavon’s old college team. There’s 22 votes down the drain unless…Annabeth, the granddaughter of an Auburn Tiger legend, fake-dates Lavon to get the Beaudry’s on board.
There’s a plan that can’t possibly go wrong!
Georgie boy is still dating some preciously named Southern gals and it seems to be causing him a wee bit of stress. But that’s all about to change because when Wade introduces him to Presley, the cute beer distributor with an attitude, we all know where that’s headed! At least she seems to have a little bit more of a personality than the dozens of single Bluebell ladies that keep chasing George around.
Wade and George are still avoiding the subject of Zoe. But Zoe and Wade are obviously having a pretty good time together and he is quick to drop everything and come to her aid whenever she needs him. Apparently this happens a lot if Wanda’s “again?” are anything to go by.
Not sure I’m too happy about that. It’s adorable and everything but I fear Zoe is destined to break Wade’s heart! And I can’t allow that to happen. In any case, at least we get treated to some wicked scenes like Wade running to Zoe’s house and unbuttoning his shirt on the way! Though no shirtless Wade last night, sorry peeps!
In her misguided vigilante mode, Zoe prepares for her stalker by cuddling up next to a pepper spray because Wade’s working late (awww). So she’s in attack mode when George sleepwalks into her house. That didn’t end so well for Georgie boy!
The good doctor has a good advice for the sleepwalker though, wear a life vest. Super important when you live on a boat.
While Annabeth gears up for a Halloween bash at the Rammer Jammer by choosing couple’s outfits, Romeo & Juliet, preparing flashcards for her fake beau and pretending she’s in a Patrick Dempsey movie, Wade is busy being awesomely handsome by dressing up as James Bond. Though this is not appreciated enough by Zoe in my honest opinion! She seems to have been hoping for a more of a Magic Mike construction worker or sexy firefighter kind of outfit. But then again, Wade seems to have hopes for the good doc to dress up as Catwoman.
We can’t always get everything we want.
That moment there though? The one were Wade comes over to Zoe’s house dressed as Bond and then he’s all cuddly and cute and snuggly? Triple awww! Mean Zoe to hurt his feelings by talking about stupid George!
Zoe decides to spend her night, the night where women everywhere dress in slutty something and she wants to leave Wade all alone on that night, with George to monitor his sleepwalking. Booh!
Not that the houseboat sleepover isn’t super awkward…especially when George gets ready for bed. And that stupid firefighter costume! So not cool! Bond, Zoe, Bond! Not a firefighter! In any case I yelled at the TV screen just a little bit.
Turns out Zoe is the worst sleep doctor ever because she falls asleep! And George hits the town in his firefighter costume while thinking Zoe is his sweetheart. And, meanwhile, poor Wade is struggling with temptation everywhere in the form of nurses, genies, and everything else slutty.
This is a recipe for disaster.
And you know what? At the point where Zoe helps George home from the Rammer Jammer and Wade is left at the bar, I definitely thought the writers were gonna make the same mistakes they did in last season. I was certain this would be were disaster strikes. That George and Zoe would end up kissing (which they admittedly almost did) and Wade would go back to his childish ways and get revenge by sleeping with one of the many ladies offering themselves up for him at the bar.
Thankfully someone had better sense than to ruin the show for me by doing all this!
I really liked Wade having a conversation with the slutty nurse (for the record I don’t like the word slutty but it just kept being thrown around a lot in this episode so I’m using it) about rules. She’s all but stripped naked and assaulted Wade at this point but he’s all like “There are rules now. I’m not exactly sure what those rules are but there are rules!” And then it dawns on him that because of the rules it is NOT okay that Zoe is alone with George who thinks she’s his girlfriend. So he heads on out to enforce those rules!
Oh my my, how I enjoyed it when Wade pushed George into the water! Go Wade! And then he actually shamed Zoe into realising the stupidity of her behaviour. I thought that was a nice touch. All of a sudden Wade is all grown up! And he’s right, Zoe had no excuse for kissing George especially not after asking Wade to be in a monogamous relationship with her. And Wade had a reason to be pissed at her (and I was, again, certain that Wade would go back to the bar and pick up one of the slutty somethings to get back at Zoe, god knows old Wade would have).
I really wanted Zoe to go after Wade but I kind of understood that, medically speaking, she had to stay and make sure George was okay. But I was happy (and pleasantly surprised) when Zoe finally made a bit of sense of the reasons why she can’t be with George. At first it came off as it usually does, that Zoe is a bit of a brat, but then she turns out she’s growing up too!
She knows what she wants now and at the moment that something is Wade and their “casual” relationship and she wants George to have the same. And this actually makes perfect sense to me. She’s having fun with Wade and even if she still has feelings for George she doesn’t want to be with him at the moment.
And, well, George still hasn’t taken any steps into growing up until he asks Presley out on a date. That’s the first real step Georgie boy has taken towards maturity in a long time! Hopefully Presley will make George a little less boring.
Then Zoe goes over to Wade’s to apologise and I was certain she’d find somebody in his bed but instead Wade is all precious and cuddly again and surprises Zoe (and me) by accepting things as they are and then throwing her on the bed.
Those two kids! Adorable I tell ya, adorable!
So, there were other people in this episode but I was mostly invested in the whole Zoe/Wade/George triangle so other stuff just happened to fade into the background!
In any case, Annabeth’s little scheme didn’t go quite as planned when Lemon meddled. And me thinks there are some feelings still beating in Lemon’s yellow heart for Lavon. I don’t think she sabotaged Lavon’s and Annabeth’s plan because of the campaign but because she couldn’t stand seeing those two together, acting like a couple.
And that hug? Yeah, Lemon’s face says it all.
Apart from that: no Rose (booh), no Brick and Magnolia, Wanda and Tom were dressed as egg and bacon (those two are so cute too), Lemon dressed as Marilyn Monroe, and Ruby apologised to Lavon for ratting him out to the Bluebell Gazette.
Did I leave anything out?
There were some nice lines in this episode but my favourite has to be Wade’s: “I always figured Tucker had dreams about you, I just never figured I’d be in one.” What was yours?
And come on people, comment! Say your piece! And ladies, don’t tell me y’all don’t want to cuddle up with Wilson Bethel after last night!
Next week: more campaign stuff, Wade’s ex comes to town, and Zoe gives Magnolia driving lessons!
