Things were rough for Zoe Hart when she first arrived in BlueBell, as she wasn’t used to the way of life in a small town and thought that she belonged in New York, that her time in town would only be temporary. However, circumstances intervened and she managed to find a foothold in the town’s social hierarchy, rising from pariah to everyday citizen and gaining a social support system that made her realize that living in a place like BlueBell isn’t half bad. After a trip to New York this summer to clear her head and reenergize following a draining previous few months, this should be the time for Zoe to dive head first into her practice and continue setting down the roots for a long stay in Alabama. But coming up on Hart of Dixie, it seems as if her summer trip might have cost her more than she imagined.
Listed below are the dates, titles, and descriptions of the first three episodes of Hart of Dixie‘s third season.
Monday, October 7th – “Who Says You Can’t Go Home”
After spending the summer in New York City, Zoe (Rachel Bilson) is ready to make her move more permanent, but first she must return to BlueBell for one last thing. Upon her return Zoe, discovers that no one in town is very happy to see her, except for Lavon (Cress Williams). Desperate for Brick (Tim Matheson) to give her a good reference, she agrees to help him track down George (Scott Porter) and get him to resurrect the Founders Day parade that has been canceled. Needing to find George quickly, Zoe enlists Lemon’s (Jaime King) help but accidentally discovers Lemon is hiding a dirty little secret. Meanwhile, Lemon also devises a plan to help Wade (Wilson Bethel) save face in front of Zoe.
Monday, October 14th – “Friends in Low Places”
Trying to be hospitable to Joel (guest star Josh Cooke), who is visiting BlueBell, Lavon and AnnaBeth (Kaitlyn Black) invite him and Zoe over for a quiet dinner, but when Lemon meets Alabama’s most eligible bachelor, Carter Covington (guest star Ryan McPartlin), she invites herself along with Carter to the soiree. However, when some unexpected guests show up to the party, Lemon’s ruse with Wade risks being exposed. Meanwhile, George makes a bad decision involving Lynly (guest star Antoinette Robertson), which could ultimately ruin his friendship with Lavon.
Monday, October 21st – “Take This Job and Shove It”
Trying to avoid a confrontation with Brick, Zoe begins discreetly seeing patients in BlueBell again. But her plan goes awry when George informs her she has a non-compete clause in her contract that prevents her from practicing for a year in the town. Lavon is thrilled at the chance to bring a minor league baseball team to BlueBell, but needs Brick’s help to woo the team’s owner. Elsewhere, Lemon finds herself in hot water with the Belles after she tries to overthrow the current leader. Meanwhile, George finds himself needing medical attention during a tutoring session with Lynly, forcing him to call Zoe for help.
