Hart of Dixie is a nice show about friendship and acceptance, but let's face it the real reason it's so awesome is Wilson Bethel. And the effect he has on our good Dr Hart !
Well this has been a lazy summer ! I'd started talking about the two of them but I didn't really get to the parts I love most ! Where it's all about subtlety.
So in a an episode of season 1, Zoe meets a cute guy at the Hammer Jammer ! His name is Jesse, he's funny, nice, easy-going and perfect ! But he's Wade's brother. Zoe discovers this somewhat important piece of trivia when going to stupid George's stupid bachelor party weekend or whatever !
We quickly learn that Wade and Jesse have a LOT of unresolved issues. They just don't get along there's the whole jealousy between brothers thing which is magnified by the fact that their dad is the "town drunk".
Anyway, things get heated between the bros and of course when the conversation drifts back to Zoe, Wade lashes out and says a whole bunch of awful things about her and, oh surprise, she's standing a few feet away from them looking like a lost puppy.
You got to give it to her, girl can look hurt.
And oh this shot ! It only lasts for a second but it's worth a 2h documentary ! I mean that look, come on ! Lost puppy ... Guilty lost puppy ! Awwww.
But that moment was mostly awkward, they just look at each other and look like the want to be anywhere else in the world ! But later comes the confrontation.
Zoe is really just a sweet ball of sweetness .. She's angry and hurt and it's just so damn cute ! And she's giving him a chance to take it back and apologize but this episode is in the distancing era. So Wade is just too happy to get an opportunity to prove he doesn't like her, to make her feel better.
What I love about Zoe is that after that conversation she "breaks up" with Jesse, they only met like a few hours before but still ! Wade's being an ass and she can date his brother if she wants to but no, it's not right so she puts an end to it.
And she's looking past Jesse, right at Wade. Awwwwww ! She's actually a really fragile girl, easily hurt and Wade was really a gigantic ass on that one.
