On "Blue Christmas" there was major heartbreak - but also major love!
From Crazy Earl turning not-so-crazy Earl... to Ruby breaking up with Lavon, this Hart of Dixie Season 2 episode was definitely one of my favorites to date.
Let's start here: Wade and Zoe FINALLY got together!
Zoe's speech to Wade at the end was ADORABLE and you have to admit that it was even if you ship George and Zoe. I really enjoyed how she maned womaned up and came to her senses. Wade HAS evolved and is definitely worthy. Now that they're on the same page, it's working out great. The tension they've played up to the past few episodes paid off here. Big time.
Since I missed last week and didn't get to review "Sparks Fly," I will take this part to talk about how I DO love Tansy and George. Except every time I see Tansy I think of the actress and her role in Magic Mike. Anyone else? No? Just me. Okay. Anyway, George looks happy with Tansy and he's changing too. He is going outside of his "good guy" box, which is something that needed to happen.
I was so proud of Lemon tonight, putting aside her personal feelings to help Lavon keep the current love of his life in Bluebell. I am astounded at how much Lemon has grown in these 10 episodes of Hart of Dixie. This is how character growth should be done. Ruby just needs to learn to keep her mouth shut and bad things won't happen. (I still love you, Ruby)
That said, I adored the immaturity between the both of them tonight. I was laughing so hard at their scene at the cookie contest. They hate each other so much and are not afraid to show it, it's perfect. I really will miss these scenes between Ruby and Lemon. I will also miss Ruby. I don't believe we've seen the last of her, but I do believe we won't see her for awhile. I was actually surprised when it was revealed that Lavon was going to be proposing, but I am glad it didn't work out. I'm sorry, Lavon, except that I'm not: you and Lemon are meant to be.
Elsewhere, Brick has a new and much younger lady friend! What a HYSTERICAL add the end, I was not expecting Brick to come up from the covers. Last week, Brick was dreading going on a date with her because of her cell phone obsession and look how that turned out! I love it. Get yours, Brick, it makes me love you more.
Back to Zoe and Wade. After watching last week's episode and this one, I have to say that Wade is becoming a very likable and lovable character. In the beginning and at times he can be a real ass and very immature. Now it's the opposite. He has become this sensitive and down-to-earth guy ever since Zoe and that is what love is folks. Love changes you and "evolves" you. That is exactly what happened to them both. Crazy Earl said it best. Those two are in love.
Move over George and Zoe, endgamers, Wade and Zoe is where it's at. I'm on this ship and I will sail with it until the end!
Overall this episode was definitely top three if not my all-time favorite. Unfortunately, we have quite the break before Hart of Dixie returns. Hopefully when that takes place, we will see more of Rose and Annabeth, my two underused favorites.
