There were two big things that happened in this episode of Hart of Dixie that really drove me nuts. I re-watched it with Dan and he had me fast forward through parts of it because he thought it was just too ridiculous. Both Lemon and Zoe got away with being major bitches and the writers made it seem like we as viewers were supposed to feel happy for them, but really I just felt bad for the two people they left in their wake.
So Lavon really loves Halloween. There were more decorations on his property than the entire town! I respect that. Zoe is freakin’ because someone is sleeping in her bed. How does she know? “…I know that I made my bed because my Kate Spade sheets arrived and I wanted to see how they looked!” Lavon’s response, “Now I’ve lost interest.” Wade asks if she’s considered the possibility of demons…oh Halloween humor.
Lavon’s lavender suit, Lemon’s yellow skirt, and Annabeth’s sorbet colored skirt. Is it spring again? I know it’s the south and they all look cute, but can’t they pretend they’re in the right season? Tom (not pictured but also wearing bright yellow shorts) messes up their election by registering a big family who supports Auburn football and so obviously will not vote for Lavon (a former ‘Bama linebacker). Who cares? Dan scoffed at me for not being aware of the state of Alabama’s silly football rivalries.
Zoe is trying to figure out who is sleeping in her bed by installing a video camera. This excites Wade who is ditching work to come “help her out.” Zoe wants monogamy but not a relationship, why? P.S. it turns out that George is the one sleeping in Zoe’s bed. He’s a sleep walker.

Annabeth, Lemon and Lavon decide that Annabeth (being a former cheerleader at Auburn and a member of a “royal” Auburn family) and Lavon should pretend to be a couple to convince the newly registered family to vote for Lavon. Lemon thinks this is a bad idea but really Lemon just doesn’t want Annabeth anywhere near Lavon in a romantic way, even if it’s a put-on.
Lemon’s adorable, even though I dislike ruffles, dress is this Mcginn ‘Asher’ Flower Print Tiered Dress
Annabeth decides she and Lavon will be Romeo and Juliet for the Halloween party (Star-crossed lovers, hello?) which Lavon thinks it’s a great idea. I keep telling Dan I don’t get football rivalry and he mentioned something about an Iron Bowl…which I also don’t understand. Look! Annabeth brought flashcards for memorizing their relationship details which Lavon thinks is brilliant. Lavon is a little too into this without realizing Annabeth is into him. But they really do look cute together.
Annabeth explains to Lemon that she actually is really into Lavon and has been for awhile. How could Lemon not know that Annabeth liked Lavon? I call b.s. And of course Lemon still has feelings for Lavon. Dear Lemon, there are more girls in the world than you! Hopefully a sweet, cheery and fiesty girl catches Lavon’s eye, rather than the conniving Lemon’s and Ruby’s of the world. (Next week’s episode anyone? Who is not excited?)
Zoe learns that George is living on a houseboat and he’s a sleepwalker – bad combination. So she decides to examine him sleeping, being a doctor and all. Does she even work anymore? I almost forgot she was a doctor. But this whole George and Zoe thing is really dumb. He tries to get past her (as if she’s way bigger than 100 pounds) and they have an awkward close-face-chat. I’m bored.
Dan thinks Lemon (Jamie King) in her Marilyn Monroe get-up looks like her character in Sin City but I think she looked way better in Sin City than she does here. Stank face! This really made me dislike Lemon (right when I was starting to like her) because apparently if she can’t have her cake and eat it too then no one can even look at the cake. Why wouldn’t everyone want Lavon and Annabeth together? Both of them are really sweet people. But, if you notice, they don’t seem to like the same things. Annabeth suggests they go see a One-Man Shakespeare show and Lavon is confused.
Lemon tells Lavon that she wouldn’t vote for a liar and basically guilts him into telling the truth about his sham 1-day faux-relationship with Annabeth. WTF Lemon, you’re such a bitch. Wah wah, you didn’t get what you wanted and now you’re making Lavon into the bad guy? No! Or as Lavon would say “Naw, naw… naaaw.” Poor Annabeth. Look at her, she’s crying. I’m so angry at Lemon and why wouldn’t Lavon go talk to Annabeth? Not wise Lavon.
So get this, not only does Annabeth talk to Lemon, she apologizes! What?! Either Annabeth is totally oblivious or she’s so used to Lemon’s b.s. that she’s become conditioned to go along with it. I’m not ok with this. No word of Lavon saying anything to Annabeth either. In an alternate universe Lemon would be the one to lie to get votes…and she’d get away with it. Really writers?
So I didn’t do a good job of getting pictures of the George sleep walking debacle but it turns out that Sleepwalking George thinks Zoe is his girlfriend. This makes Wade insanely jealous and Wade walks in on Sleepwalking George and Zoe about to kiss and throws Sleepwalking George into the water. Wade leaves in a huff, and George and Zoe go on to discuss their feelings for each other.
Zoe tells George that he needs to date someone he actually likes because that’s what she’s doing. He asks if it’s serious and she says, “No. But it’s what I need right now.” And alludes to George being her future and Wade being her right now. So both Zoe and Lemon are idiots this Halloween. Wade is super happy to hear that George knows about their relationship but Zoe leaves out the part about Wade being just a monogamous fling thing. She can have feelings for other people and plans for her future but she wants monogamy from Wade…uh huh.
