Hart of Dixie S2 Episode 15 “The Gambler”

By Friday, February 22, 2013 2 Permalink

My loyalty to Hart of Dixie has changed after the last few episodes. If you’ve been reading these recaps since season 1, you know that I have been rooting for Annabeth and Lavon since the beginning. But the writers, and viewers think the “hoes before bros” rule should apply. I disagree. I STRONGLY disagree. I don’t think there is any reason why Annabeth shouldn’t be happy. There are plenty other fish in the sea for those with unrequited love and if Annabeth and Lavon are meant to be, then so be it. Get over it Lemon, you can find another doctor or dentist or veterinarian (or win back the heart of this dentist).

Wade’s band, now featuring Meatball as a screaming lead singer, is participating in a Battle of the Bands that has a $20,000 cash prize. Wade could think about opening his bar with money like that! Because you know he wouldn’t have to share any of that prize money with his fellow band mates…just name a drink after them.

Some time has passed in Bluebell and Lemon is still avoiding Annabeth. Cricket convinces Annabeth to use that sketchy smart phone app that tracks your friends’ locations, so that she and Annabeth can keep “accidentally” running into Lemon. Sounds like Cricket is enabling some shady frat-boy like behavior here.

Lemon’s outfit:

Lela Rose Garden Jacquard Dress

Zoe, for once, is actually being a pretty damn good girlfriend. She’s very supportive of Wade’s dream of opening a bar, and LOVES that he’s in a band. She’s a legit groupie for the lead guitarist of Mind Face, though nobody seems to know what that name means (mind the face?). Zoe runs into George and Tansy at the Rammer Jammer before heading off to watch Mind Face jam. Wade insists George and Tansy tag along to check it out.

Unsurprisingly, Meatball sucks. He looks like a bigger Fred Durst, and sounds like a… bigger Fred Durst (minus the brains). George and Tansy cannot wait to get the heck out of there as soon as Zoe shows up. Zoe is horrified! Winning would be so good for Wade and Meatball is going to screw that up. She enlists George to volunteer himself to Wade to replace Meatball, because she doesn’t want to point out Meatball’s suckiness to Wade herself.

Lavon is officiating a “proxy wedding” for some soldiers in the Middle-East. Tom and Wanda stand in for the abroad couple we know nothing about and they are bubbling over with excitement for their faux wedding. Maybe a real wedding is in order.

Hart of Dixie The Gambler

Tom Long, the simple minded happy fella he is, asks Lavon to help him come up with a wedding proposal scenario he can surprise Wanda with (involving Ewoks and Avatars). Lavon, sad about Annabeth and fresh off of that officiating a “proxy wedding,” is leery but can’t say no. He suggests a plan centered around a horse drawn carriage. Tom is terrified of horses apparently, but agrees to the plan nonetheless.

Annabeth and Cricket once again “run into” Lemon, who to avoid actual conversation, tells the girls she’s busy shopping with Magnolia. Magnolia being a classic teenage opportunist thinks to herself “free clothes?” Seems like Magnolia can get away with anything so long as Lemon is distracted.

Annabeth’s outfit:

Karen Walker Violet Dress is (sold out)

Magnolia’s outfit:

Forever 21 Brocade Bow Tube Dress

After a full day of both Tansy and Zoe yapping about how hot rocker guys are, George tries to convince Tansy that he really is a double threat – sexy lawyer by day, sexier country singer by night. Tansy, though not fully convinced, tells George that she will no longer allow herself to date anybody in a band. This phases George for all of 2 seconds who has decided he DOES want to sing in Wade’s band, Tansy be damned. Luckily Meatball has just been pushed out of Mind Face by Wade.

Annabeth and Cricket stalk Lemon all the way to a date she’s having with her dentist boyfriend. Annabeth finally admits they have been following her, and Lemon drops a few bombs. First on the dentist, where she hints at some scary long and premature long term commitments, and then second on Annabeth – Lemon wants to dissolve their catering business!

Cricket’s outfit:

Coach Legacy Leather Tanner Tote is (sold out) in yellow but the smaller version Legacy Leather Mini Tanner Tote is still available

Annabeth’s outfit:

Anthropologie Leopardlily Coat is (sold out)

Lemon’s outfit:

Elizabeth and James Floral Sandy Dress is (sold out)

En route to send Wanda to town square where Tom and his carriage await, Lavon overhears Wanda sounding less than enthused about a potential marriage proposal from Tom. He runs off to stop Tom from making a fool of himself. Of course Tom, who doesn’t believe the report from Lavon, is dragged off by the carriage when the horses get spooked.

Zoe buys Wade a light up sign for his new bar to pump him up for the battle of the bands. Wade gets emotional at the sight of “Wade’s Place!” flickering. He really doesn’t say much… kind of a strange reaction, almost like he’s not excited about the idea at all. Zoe is called away by Lavon to help reign in Tom’s runaway carriage.

Hart of Dixie The Gambler

Wade is getting trashed! I guess Wade feels like a sellout for letting Meatball quit just to win a contest, particularly since he doesn’t think his bar will end up happening either way. Zoe’s sign gift apparently only made him feel like more of failure. Woe is Wade. He fires George at the last minutes and pulls Meatball from the crowd. This is not going to end well.

Wanda was apparently flipping out about Tom’s potential proposal because it was going to screw up her own proposal plan – Zombie dance proposal! Featuring Carl Winslow in full zombie makeup (as well as what looks like half the town). Pretty creative Wanda. But weird and not really romantic. Tom is floored, and he and Wanda simultaneously propose to each other. Lavon, takes all this in, and runs off to tell Annabeth that he will wait for her to work things out with Lemon – what he feels for her is worth waiting for.

Thankfully we’re spared actually watching Mind Face crash and burn, but needless to say Wade did not win that prize money. In fact he’s decided to go back to being himself, and anybody who expects him to have ambition or decency or maturity is just wasting their time. George tries to talk him down, but Wade slinks off with some random chick who was flirting with him earlier. Where is Zoe? Apparently chasing down Tom’s runaway carriage took a looooooooong time because she arrives shortly after Wade has peaced out with his new fling. George and Tansy sorta cover up for Wade, which is BS. Bad job George!
