This week’s Hart of Dixie was not as cheesy as I thought it would be. The Shakespeare scenes were surprisingly silly (in a good way not in a omg-Hart of Dixie-you’re-the-cheesiest-show-in-the-world-ever way). Last week I was worried about this George/Zoe situation but I’m glad George is more into Tansy than I thought. Is Zoe going to ruin another girl’s relationship with George like last season?
The whole town of Bluebell is lined up outside the Butter Stick Bakery for breakfast – the Rammer Jammer is closed until the new management (Lemon and Wade) fills out the necessary paperwork. Where is Bluebell gonna get their grits in the morning if Lemon and Wade don’t get their act together? They haven’t opened shop and are already butting heads over who has the right key.

George and Zoe bond over their need for the NYT crossword puzzle and mutual despair over Frank not selling it anymore. The two of them were the only ones who read that “liberal gossip rag,” anyway, so George decides to remedy this by paying for 6 newspapers every Sunday. Out of sheer excitement for crossword puzzles Zoe gives George a big hug. Tansy is not happy. But George assures Tansy that she’s the only girl for him. Carl Winslow is throwing “Shakespeare Night” and is recruiting townspeople to act out some famous Shakespeare, including these two as Romeo and Juliet. Get ready for tights and cheese.

No one shows up to the Rammer Jammer staff meeting on time. In fact, Wanda only shows up to tell Wade and Lemon that everyone else has quit, and she’s really just there to be polite and give them her two weeks notice. As the proud owner of a new bee colony she’s going into the honey business. Wanda the stay at home bee mom! Lemon and Wade are screwed.
Zoe has a dream where George shows up late at night just to bring her the NYT that he drove six hours to get. She greets him at the door with perfectly tousled sex hair (this is what clues me in that it’s a dream. FYI). He tells her that he would do anything for her and that she’s everything to him *insert twinkling sound effects*. She wakes up horrified. She schedules an impromptu psych evaluation with Brick and he advises her to avoid intimate encounters with George where she could do or say something she might regret.

Finding new employees for the Rammer Jammer isn’t going as swimmingly as Zoe and Wade hoped, Wade veto’s Lemon’s picks and Lemon veto’s Wade’s picks. Wade wants boobs, Lemon wants fancy. How is this going to work?
Lavon and Zoe head for the Butterstick so Zoe can avoid George who showed up to the doctor’s office with a very sick Tansy. While there, Zoe lets it slip that she went to Shakespeare camp and Carl Winslow overhears this and instantly makes Zoe the new understudy for Juliet. Who is she supposed to kiss? George! Romeo oh Romeo.
Lavon ends up on the psych couch explaining his fear of being on stage. When Shelby shows up to ask Brick if he’d like to join her for lunch Brick avoids her by saying how he’s busy with Lavon’s problems. Lavon and Brick take turns trying to headshrink each other. What’s going on with Brick?
Lemon’s foo foo high-class French chef has no idea how to make grits and the citizens of Bluebell are not happy. Somehow this ends up with Lemon in the kitchen burning everything in sight and looking sweaty and exhausted. Meanwhile the Rammer Jammer gets its liquor license revoked because Wade’s boob obsession inspired him to hire an underage high school girl.
George and Zoe try to get Tom and Wanda to be Romeo and Juliet by having Zoe take care of Wanda’s bees and George subbing in at Tom’s new job. Would you trust Zoe to take care of your babies????? HELLLLLL NO. Wanda and Tom’s bees made a hive in Tansy’s trailer because Zoe peaced out after a bee flew up her pants. Zoe is the worst baby-sitter of all-time. Of course this news breaks just as Wanda is about to get on stage as Juliet. This once again leaves Zoe as the only Juliet in town.
Tansy and her crazy girl logic convinces George that if he doesn’t get up there as Romeo and smooch Zoe then he totally has feelings for Zoe and um dats bad. George hops to it and runs out to buy some tights but thankfully this happens off camera.
Wade and Lemon go to the liquor board to explain themselves and lookie lookie the liquor board in its entirety is this crazy lady who Wade and Lemon both rejected when they were interviewing chefs. Looks like the Rammer Jammer has a chef! And can serve up booze!
Lavon triumphantly hits the stage to a big round of applause. Brick is soooooooooo happy with Lavon and looks at him like a proud papa. Zoe and George enact the death scene of Romeo and Juliet with a few slight edits. Zoe refuses to let George kiss her and writes some iambic pentameter of her own. George doesn’t want to let Tansy down and doesn’t take no for an answers and plants a long one on Zoe. Tansy is happy with this somehow…
Turns out Brick has something to tell Shelby about why he’s been avoiding her. Looks like he got bad news at the hospital last episode but uh oh Hart of Dixie cliffhanger! The episode ends with a few questions about Brick that the preview for next week’s episode instantly spoils. Nice work CW.
