‘Hart of Dixie’ Recap: Sparks Fly

By Freda Eang,

Wade musters up his courage to tell Zoe his feelings in this week’s episode of Hart of Dixie. Using the charity picnic auction as a perfect excuse for a first real date, he tells Zoe to bid on his basket if she’s interested in taking their relationship to the next level. Zoe is left in a predicament since she never thought of furthering her friends with benefits relationship with Wade into something more serious.

As she asks Ruby for advice during the bidding war, Ruby forgets to bid on Lavon’s basket. Lemon had accidentally bid on Lavon’s basket thinking it was someone else's, but they ended up having a good time as friends. Brick was horrified at who won the bid on his basket, since it was one of the girls that George attempted to date after breaking up with Lemon. Strangely, Brick was able to forget about his recent breakup with Emily as he was learning how to use apps on his phone. On the other hand, George goes forward with his plan to woo Tansy by making his basket appeal to her specifically. When it finally came down to Wade’s basket, Zoe is hesitant in bidding and although she does bid in the last few seconds, the auctioneer does not hear her and Magnolia ends up winning. Seeing how upset Wade is, Zoe bribes Magnolia to give her the basket and the picnic ends up being really awkward, especially after Zoe comments how George and Tansy are not compatible at all since they are opposites. This comment infuriates Wade as he and Zoe can be seen in the limelight, and so he leaves angrily.

At the closure of the episode, Zoe’s thought towards George and Tansy has changed after she witnesses their interaction with one another. She sees how Tansy brings another side of George out and we can see how she is having second doubts about her relationship with Wade. She walks over to his place to return his basket later that evening, but doesn’t knock or go in. Zoe simply leaves it on his outside table and returns to her home. Thoughts on this episode? I find Tansy and George really cute together and I’m glad Wade decided to be upfront with Zoe. No one should be treated as a placeholder; I just hope Zoe realizes that soon.

Hart of Dixie airs Tuesdays at 8pm on the CW.
