20140113-202119.jpg

Welcome back to Hart of Dixie recap day! Refresh your BlueBell memory with last week’s recap HERE!

BlueBell is under merging problems and Lavon is still not into being out and about around town. To make him feel better AnnaBeth makes him an amazing breakfast but not good enough to make him go out.

Oh heck no! Did George just say Tanzy in his sleep while he was next to Lynly. With a push off the bed George has to explain himself, but all’s well. Zoe on the other hand is being patronized by Joel on her creativity and decids he would edit a speech she was to make at a family gathering.

Shelby has now lost her creative director and the opening of her cabaret club is right around the corner. She is frantic and asks Brick to help and cancel all his appointments for the day. AnnaBeth and Brick are in dire need of Lemon whose scheming and plotting are all welcome at this time of need. So as Lemon is video chatted in she helps the Belles with the merger and Brick with the Shelby, creative director situation. Her advice, get the worst director to tank the opening and make Shelby disappear. Naturally Zoe walks in and volunteers herself! Well here we go!

Day one of Zoe and the “One Cellular Sensation” and she has high hopes for all the cast members. Joel does persist and asks if he is needed and would be of help but it’s a no for Z. She is so thrilled to be directing the show that she doesn’t see how Joel is trying to warn her about how maybe Brick plotted something with Lemon to get rid of Shelby. When he does flat out say it, Zoe says Brick would never do that.

Tanzy is down in the dumps with her beau but George comes to the rescue to tell her he is a jerk. But Tanzy won’t have it as she called Lynly a “crazy-eyed girl”, of course she creeps up behind them which makes for a quick exit for Tanzy. Cricket is out on the town trying to get Maryanne Matthews to stay in BlueBell. Now that her car is broken down Lavon steps in and tells her that the people of BlueBell are unique and they love their town. She spots the cabaret sign and asks for a front and center table as she is a fanatic of the showbiz. But oh boy is she in for a “cellular treat”.

Anyone else still annoyed by Wade and Vivian? Wade proposes a night out at a dive bar and Vivian agrees but Tanzy lets Wade know that she is a classy lady and he needs to step it up for her. Wade changes plans and Vivian has to change them so she won’t be able to go out with him. Though Wade is now over thinking about the hair flip Vivian does that Tanzy told him about. Hair flips equal uncomfortableness.

Lemon is on a good one this episode, via video chat that is. After contacting the Belles and her father, her next victim is Lavon who needs a pep in his step to do something about the merger. Then Lemon is on to George to give him a push towards Scooter and lawyering him out. As the four of them, George, Scooter, Tanzy and Lynly go on a hike things get heated when BlueBell and Fillmore merging talk comes up. George tells him about how they know about the shopping mall, Tanzy convinces George that Lynly might be a bit crazy and Scooter leaves frustrated by the fact that Tanzy spied on him.

While Brick confronts Shelby about driving him crazy and being unable to resist her, she faints and ends up at the doctors with low blood pressure. Now it’s bed rest for her and the cabaret is under Joel’s command per Zoe’s instructions. So it’s a revamp of the “Cellular Sensation” and back to the old 12 minutes of Shelby-inspired cabaret and to save the town!

With Mrs. Matthews front and center the show begins. With a slow start, the cabaret is well, a, um…disaster. But wait! Shelby to the rescue, baby bump and all! In a carriage or should I say hospital bed, and bedazzled red sparkling outfit, there’s no stopping her now, add a kick line and her performance is a hit! Mrs. Matthews absolutely adored the show and discovered that the BlueBell people really do love their town. Merger saved!

Back in Wade town he makes a stop at Vivian’s house to see how she is. Embarrassed to tell Wade what her real problem is he starts to worry. But not to fret, it’s just that she is a single mother, has a little boy and loves her job and just can’t hang like the kiddos do. In George land, with Lynly drunk and asleep, Tanzy and George share a conversation outside his boat. They both tell each other it was harder to see the other with another person and Tanzy says, “sometimes I think i should’ve never let you go.” As she puts her head on his shoulder, the shot pans out to reveal Lynly overhearing their conversation.

Zoe Hart isn’t all done with her “One Cellular Sensation” show. She gives Joel one last song and it’s bed time for them. OK maybe they’re cute together but they ain’t no Zade, or Woe…Wade and Zoe, you get the what I’m trying to say.

Come back next week for another Hart of Dixie Recap!

She finally opens up to her cousin who she was bonding so well with, unfortunately things turn sour when she says she is Zoe Hart and all her cousin has to say is, just because you’re in the blood line doesn’t mean you belong. Ouch!

Talking about Paths, Lynly is just pushing her luck with George as she tries making him jealous any second she gets. As Tucker falls for her tricks she demands that he kiss her and to let them be together. Poor broken hearted George says he can’t, but then he does. So we’ll see what’s to come for these two. The episode ends with Zoe talking to Joel about her family and how she didn’t realize how much she wanted them until she saw how happy they were.
