    • Getting over it quickly now that the writers seem hellbent on making George/Zoe the ‘root for’ couple.

  • Hart of Dixie. I’m intrigued to see how they are going to handle Wade, how they are going to work it so we forgive Wade and want Zoe to give him another chance.

    • I’m so torn. The show clearly favors George / Zoe. I mean.. they gave a nice little gift to the Zoe/Wade fans by letting them have a relationship.. but then they threw Wade under the bus and ran him over 40 different ways. It just seems evident that the writers want us to root for George/Zoe – that’s been the go-to couple from the beginning and I’m certain they want them to be endgame.. that’s why they haven’t let anything ‘REALLY’ happen with them yet. I like the show but the George/Zoe stuff is so dull to me that I just don’t feel like watching. Is that terrible?

      • In one word: NO

      • I like it when they are friends, but romantically not seeing it. I love Zoey and Wade together and completely agree with you and what the writers did to him. I agree with you that the writers are forcing us to want them to be the “root for” couple.

        • I am still not understanding why the writers did the cop out way to break up Zoey and Wade. I am thinking about the founders day episode and thinking that is how a real relationship is suppose to be you fight, argue, make up and have fun and bring out the best/worse in each other. To me, Zoey and George would just be boring and are better off as friends.

  • Hart of Dixie, Body of Proof and Awkward. I kind of like to see Zoe and George together, I know I might be the only one but I like to see Wade with someone different. Also the way Zoe is she would get upset and be suspicious every time Wade talked or was with other girls and grill him about it every time!

  • hart of Dixie!!! I love Zoe and wade but I’m starting to ship wade and lemon. That’s a couple I want to see plus I think they have great chemistry. Team lade lol

  • I hate George and Zoe, but I know she has to get him out of her system. I’m hoping their boringness as couple though leads to more focus on quirky town events…

  • Have loved George & Zoe since the beginning. Excited to see where the show takes them even though the whole Romeo & Juliet thing tonight. seems less than promising. :-/

  • Wade has some serious self esteem issues, work on that, then he’ll feel more confident and realizes that he has the potential to be a successful partner to Zoe and he’ll feel more satisfied with his accomplishments. So I’m hoping that the bar venture with Lemon will go off smoothly.

  • Can Ready for Love even be canceled? Even as it is bombing, does NBC have anything to replace it with other than reruns?
