Fug the Show: Hart of Dixie recap, season finale


So, after a couple of disappointing and underwhelming episodes, Hart of Dixie nailed its season finale. SO MUCH FINALLY HAPPENED. In a nutshell: George told Lemon an hour before the wedding that he couldn’t marry her (after spending all day organizing moving the wedding from the town square inside, due to a crazy storm), and she responded by punching him in the face. Hot Neighbor Wade was extra hot and extremely neighborly, as he and Zoe decided they needed to Do It in order to get along properly (because sexual tension is what was causing all of their interpersonal issues, they claim. Whatever you say, you two). So they do. And as they’re all being post-coitally adorbs, a knock comes at the door of Zoe’s shack. Lo, it is George, who tells her he called off the wedding, kisses her, and skips off into the rain. LOVE TRIANGLE FULLY LOADED.

Also: I think Brick has the hots for one of George’s cousins (age-appropriate cousins, not like some twentysomething hussy), and Annabeth seems to have the hots for Lavon which FINALLY HELLO.

Let’s look at the outfits, and by “outfits,” I mean a lot of wedding dresses and shirtless HNW YOU ARE WELCOME.

    I think we need to start calling HNW – NNW – nuclear neighbor wade. I’ve never really understood the George allure and this episode made it completely unintelligible. HNW FTW!

    I’m SOOO glad they Zoe and Wade FINALLY got it on. It was well worth the wait! And then I was really pissed at George for coming and ruining her post-coital bliss. Lame. I hope there is more naked Wade next season!

      I completely agree with you! I was so mad George had to go and ruin things between Zoe and Wade. I want more of Wade and Zoe, I don’t like the idea of her and George at all.

    After this episode ended, I sort of kept chanting to myself, “Hot neighbor Wade. Hot neighbor Wade. Hot neighbor Wade.” I’m still not sure if I was doing it to convince the writers that HNW > Jason Street, or if I was trying to summon him to my living room.

    A little of both, probably.

    HNW was all sorts of adorable this episode. How is George even in the picture? I get that he’s Jason Street and all, but come’on, it’s HNW all the way. Right?

    I know a lot of people compare the Wade-Zoe-George triangle to Pacey-Joey-Dawson, but I have to say I was NEVER torn about who I wanted Joey with (Pacey), while I really go back and forth on this one. I didn’t enjoy the writers’ pushing Wade into manchild mode when his hot bro showed up, but I do like the character generally. I can also understand how Zoe crushed on George when he was nice to her while everyone else in town (less Lavon) was less than welcoming. Also, he looks like Jason Street, more my cup of tea than HNW, I must say (**ducks for objects being thrown**).

    Also, I was expecting MUCH more crazy out of Lemon’s wedding dress.

    I totally get the bit about female actors having no-nudity clauses in their contracts, but seriously, the post-coital shots with the woman in her bra just look stupid. Always. Because of course it would have been taken off. And why would you put it back on to cuddle afterwards? Isn’t there any other way to preserve her modesty (about which I am not complaining, btw. You shouldn’t have to share your private parts with the whole world if you don’t want to.) without being so very obvious and silly?

      I always think “well positioned sheet” makes more sense than bra. We all know her boob isn’t going to pop out, but it seems more realistic.

    Yes, the writers final nailed it (and so did Zoey, tee hee)!

    @GirlyObsessions– I was pissed too at George for showing up and messing with Zoey’s head! Bad timing George! Although I do like George, as well as HNW…if Zoey ends up with George, that leaves HNW for one of us! :)

    My favorite line of this episode was when Wade took off his shirt and Zoe said to him, “I’m pretty sure the goat doesn’t care about your abs.” No, Zoe.. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t, but WE do! HELLO indeed!

    • Adriele

      RIGHT? I laughed out loud when I saw that on the show and thought someone would mention it on here. :) His abs are a BIG DEAL. :)

      Jessica- pecs- hello, PECS- HELLO was hilarious.

      Also, anyone notice the hole (or something) on the left arm of her blazer? That was driving me nuts!

    I can’t believe there was no picture of HNW in the suit that he wore for approximately two seconds! Boys in suits=adorbs.

    Can I just say that I hope we get more of sweet, well intentioned and goofy HNW next season than bitter screw up manchild HNW ? I’m so glad they brought his character back around in the Finale.

    This show is too cute. It’s embarrassing how much I love it.

      I’m just so scared they are going to make him go back to manchild mode once it is known that George is available and interested in Zoe…I hope he mans up and fights for her and does not just whine and piss and moan! Ugh…I’m so nervous…way more excited about Zoe/Wade than Zoe/George, even though I feel bad for George.

      Ditto on the need for a shot of HNW in a suit. Other than that outfit, they’ve probably spent about $100 on his wardrobe: jeans, sweatshirt, tank, plaid shirt (the latter two optional most episodes).

        I couldn’t get a decent shot of it, because he kept moving. He did look great.

    Great episode! I too was chanting for HNW – I don’t understand how Jason Street is even notable in a universe that includes shirtless HNW. Perhaps they should both get shirtless and fight next season…

    Lemon’s wedding dress was beautiful – and her bridesmaids dresses were fab as well. I thought everyone was fabulously accessorized. I expected way more cray.

    Thank God Annabeth finally realized Lavon is the catch of the century. That man needs a decent story line…

    I loved Lemon’s wedding dress but I thought the necklace really looked awful with it. I know it is in keeping with her character’s style, but yuck. It would have come in handy had she wrapped it around her fist when she clocked George. A great episode, all in all.

    I also LOVED this finale. I don’t really get what the big deal is about George either…I mean, yeah he’s cute and sweet but he’s pretty blah to me personality-wise. I think Zoe & HNW have way more chemistry and they have their fun, flirty banter too.

    I thought Lemon looked really great in her wedding attire, I was also expecting way more craziness for her & the bridesmaids. She also looked SO pretty the whole episode while she was waiting to get ready for the wedding, with barely any makeup on. She’s such a pretty girl.

    I like the idea of Annabelle and Lavon too…hmm, Lavon/Annabelle/Lemon love triangle next season?! I’m so excited the show is coming back, though a heads up that it will be on Tuesdays in the fall instead of Mondays.

    I just started watching “Hart of Dixie” so I haven’t made it to this obviously hot episode yet. But, I can vouch that in the first few episodes Zoe claims she is, “A Miranda who wishes she were a Carrie”. HNW is waaaay more Steve than George is, just sayin’. So, I hope that bodes well for Zoe and Wade. Just maybe with 100% less unplanned pregnancy than Steve and Miranda. Also, love, love, loved Lemon’s dress.

    I have nothing against George, I just can’t find a man who wears chinos and boat shoes sexy next to a ripped guy in Levis. Blue suede boat shoes no less…no George no!

      Anna- I don’t know. Lavon looks pretty damn hot in his chinos and boat shoes. :)

      George was the OLD story line. HNW is the new future of sexiness. Get on board, people!

        Totally with you on Lavon Adriele. But, remember he is hot enough to refer to himself in the third person, which usually, like boat shoes is a turn off. I don’t find George physically hot enough to get away with boat shoes or referring to himself in the third person. But Lavon? Lavon can get away with that any day!

    Jessica, one big reason that I love this show so much is the fugcaps — thank you for a season of awesome!

    Also, have you googled HNW’s 3-D alter ego? His mom IRL is crazier than this whole show put together, and he totally stands up for her, like an awesome young fellow. Team HNW!

      Wow, I didn’t realize his mother is the writer Joyce Maynard until I checked Wikipedia. Along with her novels, she’s had a successful career writing about her terrible decisions, like having an affair with J.D. Salinger when she was 18 and he 53. She recently announced that her adoption (as a single parent, aged 56) of two Ethiopian girls failed and she had to find another family to take them. Some people find her confessional writings admirably honest; I think she’s a publicity- hungry narcissist. No wonder HNW says he’s been on his own since he was 17!

    Hmm, I don’t care what y’all say, George all wet at her door made me swoon. Wow.

    And you wouldn’t be complaining if Annabeth made a play for Lavon would you? Because when she said that, I was like, oh that’s genius. 1: I like her 2: so I’m glad she’s turning a healthy corner after her sadness by saying, HELLO LAVON, and 3: Lemon/Annabeth Draaammmaaa.

    I felt bad for Lemon, she really did look beautiful but it took forever for George to shake off the crazy and finally end it. FINALLY.

      Really? I actually messaged my friend who’s a total Jason Street’s fan to say that George in a wet shirt in the rain compared to HNW: NOT the same effect. She agreed.

    OMFG. HNW! The poster who said he was “Nuclear Neighbor Wade” wasn’t off the mark. So so so so HOT!

    George was sexual buzzkill for Zoe. HNW talking about food & more rounds of hot sex… then George just popping over for a limp kiss and “hope to see you later?” UGH.

    HNW wins.

    I’ve been waiting for the recap all day. I immediately thought of you ladies when HNW and Zoe finally sealed the deal. About damn time!! I really don’t know who to root for in the love triangle, but I hope that poor Zoe sees a bit more action next season, regardless of whose hits she’s fielding. And yay for Annabeth — she was sorely underused this season. Here’s hoping something breaks off with her and Lavon. So glad there is another season! I can’t imagine if Monday was the last we saw of Bluebell.

    I was freaking out during this entire finale. When George showed up at the end, I was yelling rude things at my TV because I was so mad. DO NOT DUMP WADE FOR GEORGE!!!

    I might have stood up and yelled “SCREEN CAP!” when HNW pulled off the shirt. I’m glad to know you heard me on the other side of the country.

    I never understood what both George and Lavon saw in Lemon. Especially Lavon, who is way out of her league. And Wade is so much more interesting than George.

    Eating lunch, sitting at my desk, clicking through & catching up on GFY. Giggling, enjoying myself, excited for a Hart of Dixie Fug the Show.

    Slide #7 – My fork and jaw dropped at the same time, I swear on Vogue some food fell out of my mouth. GOOD LORD HNW. GOOD LORD.

    OK, just wached the final episode this weekend on the Web and something’s bugging me: shouldn’t the stems of the men’s boutonnières in the dream wedding sequence be placed inside the button holes? Why are those white-wrapped stems laying on top of the nice tuxes? OK – weird, I know but just had to get that out there.
