My review of the Hart of Dixie finale on tvguide.ca!
Zoe gets caught in the rain, her love triangle on ‘Dixie’ finale
The day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived! No, not Lemon and George’s wedding day. Something much better! The Hart of Dixie finale!
Hart of Dixie was picked up for a second season last week, making Monday’s season ender even more of a nail-biter. The wedding day was off to a terrible start when George awoke from a bizarre nightmare where both Lemon and Zoe stood at the altar with him, dressed in white gowns. See, Georgie! Your subconscious is telling you to be with Zoe!
(Side note: I’d like to apologize now for how very conflicted I will be in this review. I love all the Dixie boys and want Zoe with both of her love interests. I can’t even pick between George and Wade, so I don’t know how she can!)
Speaking of Wade, Zoe tripping the breaker again didn’t help him let go of his undying hate for her, even though she tried to make him warm up to her again, this time as a friend. Zoe was throwing the “friend” card around a lot Monday night as she finally told George that she was staying in Bluebell for good, meaning they would have to coexist. His reaction set her off, causing her to rant to Lavon about how George must love her and how she has to storm into the wedding screaming, “I object!” Lavon, trying to avoid trouble, sent Zoe out of Bluebell for the day.
Meanwhile, Lemon’s preparations weren’t going well. She had a pimple on her chin and mimosa spilled on her wedding dress! Oh my! Little did she know that Tom’s knee was tingling, so her beautiful outdoor wedding in the town square was about to get washed out by an unstoppable squall. (Am I the only one who sees all the signs? This wedding can’t happen!) As George went through a range of emotions, he frantically tried, with the help of the whole town, to move the wedding into the old fire hall that was falling apart.
Zoe was tasked with picking up a stranded Wade. Naturally, the two were stranded together once the rain came in, leaving them wet and shivering in a nearby barn. Hmm … I wonder what happened there? Wade stuck to his hateful guns though, and told Zoe that the only reason he was ever attracted to her was because she became something he could never have. If they just got the physical stuff out of their system, they would both be happier and able to move on.
Due to different tragedies, such as a lost baby goat and barbed wire-induced cut, both Zoe and Wade had to peel off their soaking wet, but already see-through, shirts. Things started to heat up (finally!) until they were interrupted. I mean, rescued! The two headed into their separate homes until Zoe blew the fuse once more, signaling to Wade that she wanted to finished what they had started. And hallelujah, the two finally hooked up!
In the fire hall, George was losing it as the wedding literally crumbled around him. Lavon told him to postpone it, but George then had to admit to everyone (and, subsequently, himself) that if he didn’t marry Lemon today, he probably never would. Because he’s in love with Zoe! So off he ran, soaking wet, to break it off with Lemon (who punched him, deservedly) and to let Zoe know where he finally stood. Zoe got a kiss and promise of lovely tomorrows from George, and suddenly, she was the one stuck between two lovers. The final shot of her face was not one of excitement at future prospects, but of someone stuck between a George and a Wade-place.
Overall, it was an amazing ending to the season and I can’t wait to see what Zoe will decide when the southern charm of Hart of Dixie returns to the CW this fall. I am very jealous that she got both beautiful boys, hence why I can’t even decide which I would rather she end up with!
What do you think will happen? Comment below, y’all.
