Brooks’ Ruby makes quick friends with the resident doctor upon her return to Bluebell. (What about AnnaBeth?!) She is described as a successful woman with acerbic wit, making her something of kindred spirit to Dr. Hart. Her relationships with Lavon and Lemon, however, will be less harmonious as there’s some unresolved issues there. As we previously reported, Ruby was the mayor’s high school sweetheart, putting her at odds with the southern belle.

Hart of Dixie returns Oct. 2 at 8/7c.
