“I’m Moving On” – Hart of Dixie

Screen Shot 2013-05-04 at 12.32.02 PMHart of Dixie. The episode was… well, it was okay. Zoe’s starting to piss us off. Her neuroses are adorable and we identify with them, but only when we’re treated to them in small doses. This episode? Those were not small doses. How is it possible that she has still not figured out how not to talk to someone? And the fact that she could be so self-centered as to commandeer a prom to find a man and then have a meltdown was the final straw. We watched this episode cringing internally every time she was on screen. The fact that she ended up alone at the end of the episode surprised us not one whit. Her no-strings-attached dalliance with Wade bothered us, only because we had hoped he would have more self-respect. But it’s Wade, so that shouldn’t have surprised us either. Speaking of Wade, he and Lemon’s attempts to save the Rammer Jammer have passed from ‘comedy gold’ to ‘just a little bit ridiculous’. How many more reasons do they need to work together instead of behind each other’s backs? The final-moments rallying of the townspeople was sweet, and displayed to perfection that BlueBell spirit we all love. So, perhaps, the Rammer Jammer comedy crutch may be used less frequently from now on. Brick and Shelby’s decision to elope was well timed and welcome. It saves us the trauma of months of wedding planning and doesn’t drag the arc into next season. After this week, we’re also

total Shelby converts. She was fantastic with Lemon and Magnolia and, somehow, managed to keep herself together in the face of a whole lot of vitriol. A great, strong female character. And, finally, George and Tansy’s breakup increases the likelihood of a George and Zoe-centric finale. It’s been a long time coming, though, and if the writers know their craft at all it is possible that we will also get a George and Zoe-centric cliffhanger. It’s only a few days away, so we’ll know soon enough. – K
