This week’s episode of Hart of Dixie was sooo much better than last week’s. I’m sorry for deterring anyone from watching the last episode but I really couldn’t handle it. This week was much more enjoyable. Maybe it has to do with the fact that Lavon and Annabeth are totally going to get together! Have the writers really been listening to us or did they plan this all along? Who knows if it will actually work out, but in real life I’d want these two married and making babies as soon as possible. (I can’t take credit for this post at all really, Dan gets all the credit for being the funny one)
“Now what?” – Lavon
George’s parents arrive in town for a surprise visit. Last season it was George’s dad, but this season George’s mom is probably going home with the trophy for most annoying meddling guest-character. Yes, she’s even less likable than Ruby; judging Tansy as unworthy of her son pretty much as soon as they meet.
Wade and Zoe just can’t get away from Tansy and George, which drives Tansy and George’s mom nuts. They all, including George’s parents, go see a movie together. Tansy and Wade hate it. George and Zoe love it because it has that guy from “The Artist.” This is enough for George’s mom to conclude that George and Tansy are just not right for each other, since Zoe is clearly a better match. Hell, George and Zoe are so compatible that they spend half this episode literally speaking at the same time, and spouting similarly silly nonsense.

I swear Zoe is wearing a Lulu Frost necklace but I can’t find the right one! The Lulu Frost One Of a Kind 13 is very similar but not quite the one.
An English dude arrives in Bluebell and immediately sends Annabeth swooning. Too bad the guy looks familiar to Lavon – which means he can’t be English! But why does Lavon even care? Is he really just being a good citizen and protective mayor? Or maybe seeing Annabeth get flirty with a stranger doesn’t sit right with Lavon.
Magnolia finds a bra in the couch at home, sending Lemon into a frenzied search for whatever floozie Brick is dating as a rebound (aka Shelby). I’m not sure what it is about that bra that leads Lemon to conclude that her father is dating a gold-digging tramp but whatever. Between George’s mom hating on Tansy and Lemon’s prejudice against whoever her father is dating, this is going to be a particularly uppity episode.
Lavon confronts Mr. English, who turns out not to be English at all, but a back-woods ‘Bama country boy who has “sudden accent syndrome.” Uh huh. Lavon buys this story, but makes the Waterboy promise to tell Annabeth the truth.
Zoe and Wade run into Tansy and George AGAIN, but at some random restaurant in another town. Zoe and George are so alike that they even think of the same places to hide from each other. Awww. George orders a gigantic lobster while he and Tansy pretend to be fighting to keep Wade and Zoe at a distance. Zoe and George get texts at the same time from George’s mom saying that George’s dad is having chest pains and that they should come to George’s boat right quick.

Turns out George’s dad isn’t even on the boat and George’s mom just wanted to get George and Zoe alone to admit they still have feelings for each other. Mama powers up the boats and sends this awkward conversation downriver. The engine floods and dies, leaving everybody to drift aimlessly just as Tansy and Wade arrive via rowboat. Tansy tries to break up with George because she’s insecure about Zoe and all the nice things his mom has to say about hair dressers and people who live in mobile homes.
Shelby, now pressed into indentured servitude by Brick to cover up their relationship, has to cancel on a dinner date with Lemon to do some filing at Brick and Zoe’s practice. But Lemon being Lemon, realizes that Shelby is now perfectly situated to spy on her dad, and heads over to the doctor’s office to scour for clues as to who her dad is gettin’ on. Annabeth calls looking for Brick, and unknowingly makes herself Lemon’s chief suspect for floozie.
Meanwhile, back in Bluebell, Lemon accuses Annabeth of seducing her dad, because why else would she need Brick in the middle of the night? Why to help fake English dude get rid of his migraines (and his fake accent)! Brick and Annabeth have no idea what Lemon is accusing them of because of course nobody in this town speaks explicitly. More awkwardness. Brick finally sets things straight and admits to dating Shelby. English guy emerges from the bedroom where he was resting with his real accent, and Annabeth tries to do the right thing and not look disappointed that her James Bond just turned into Forrest Gump, but she can’t.

Zoe and George talk through the logic of why they’re happy with other people and don’t want to be together and it all sorta makes sense to them and nobody else. Except Wade, who now is apparently beyond any and all petty jealousy. Good for you Wade, way to take the high road. Anyway, George and Zoe convince George’s mom that they are happy where they are. Nobody breaks up. George’s mom continues to drink heavily.
Lavon runs into Annabeth the following morning at the Rammer Jammer. Apparently “sudden accent syndrome” does exist, but Forrest was faking nonetheless, and peaced out as soon as he could. Lavon apologizes to Annabeth for cock-blocking, she takes it all in stride and offers to buy him coffee. Lavon smiles as if he finally sees Annabeth as more than just a friend, for the first time. FINALLY!
