HART OF DIXIE  “In Havoc & In Heat” Episode 4 airs Monday, October 17 at 9pm on The CW. Synopsis:  As Bluebell is hit by an intense heat wave, Zoe (Rachel Bilson) discovers that the hot weather makes everyone act differently and with a lot less inhibition.

Meanwhile, Lemon (Jaime King) prepares for the arrival of George’s (Scott Porter) family, determined to win them over, but her emotions get the best of her when Lavon (Cress Williams ) shows  up to the same restaurant  with his date, Didi (Nadine Velazquez). David  Paymer directed the episode written by Rina Mimoun.

The CW Orders Full Seasons of The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie

Just a few hours ago the news broke that The CW had picked up freshman drama Ringer for a full season .  Now the network has announced that it's also giving its two other freshman shows, Hart of Dixie and The Secret Circle , full season orders. “We believe in the creative strength of these dramas, and by giving them back nine orders we can give our audience the chance to enjoy complete seasons of all three of them,” said Mark Pedowitz,president of the CW. “With compelling storylines, engaging characters and tremendous buzz, we firmly believe that Hart of Dixie, Ringer and The Secret Circle can become signature series for the CW, the kind of top-notch shows that are synonymous with our brand.” None of this news should come as a surprise.  As I mentioned in my Ringer article, The CW is in a position where it's slightly difficult to just cancel shows in its limited line-up because it doesn't have a lot on the back-burner to put in empty spots.  One Tree Hill and some reality shows will be premiering mid-season, but that's it for shows ready to be put on the schedule.  In addition, all of these shows are performing well enough for the network to get full season orders.  The big question is which shows will get a second season.  Smart money right now is on The Secret Circle , but I predict Ringer and Hart of Dixie could go either way at this point.  We should know more about that in the spring.

Hart of Dixie Photos & Promo: A Heat Wave Makes Everyone Crazy in Episode 1.04

Hart of Dixie's Zoe is still desperate to fit in in Bluebell.  While it looked like the town wasn't willing to be so welcoming after last week's parade fiasco, she and Brick had to come together to save a farmer's life.  But their temporary truce came to a bitter end when Brick took credit for saving the farmer's life.  Although, it looked like both sides might be willing to meet half way once they realized that both of them are helpful to the practice. Meanwhile, Brick hired a new receptionist for the medical practice.  Didi immediately clashed with Zoe, but was very interested in Lavon.  Lemon wasn't happy to hear about Didi's crush and was determined to drive her out of town, which didn't make Lavon very happy.

'Hart of Dixie': Rachel Bilson's BFF cast! Meet Megan Stevenson

Though she's officially a resident of Bluebell, Alabama after trouncing Brick Breeland in the gumbo cookoff, "Hart of Dixie's" Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) hasn't left New York City too far behind.In an upcoming episode, we'll meet her friend Gigi from NYC -- and Zap2it has exclusively confirmed that Megan Stevenson will play the character, who comes to Bluebell for an unexpected visit. Though she's a relative newcomer to the TV biz, fans may recognize Stevenson from a memorable guest appearance on an episode of last year's "$#*! My Dad Says," when she starred as Amy, who went on a double date with Henry, his famed Dad, and her aunt. Zoe will certainly have plenty to deal with as the season continues. Executive producer Leila Gerstein confirms that we will see Zoe's mother again, and she'll likely also get a visit from her (non-biological) father this season as well. Not to mention the new veterinarian in...

'Hart of Dixie': Will Rachel Bilson finally take down the grumpy town doc?

We've two episodes in to "Hart of Dixie," and we're already incredibly invested in the sweet, charming story of Bluebell, Alabama -- and, of course, in Zoe (Rachel Bilson) and her progress as the new doctor in town. In the first two episodes, Zoe didn't have much luck facing off against veteran Bluebell practitioner Brick (Tim Matheson). Have no fear, "Dixie" fans -- Zoe will earn Brick's respect -- and the respect of the town -- sooner than you think. We attended a Q&A with the cast and executive producer Leila Gerstein on Monday, and Gerstien assured us that Zoe and Brick would come to a bit of an understanding in the strangest of places... the Great Gumbo Showdown. "Tonight is a big episode between Zoe and Brick," Gerstein teases. "Zoe is going to take on Brick Breeland in the gumbo contest. It's a very big Brick/Zoe episode. They end in a very different place."...

Rachel Bilson Breaks the News to Regis That 'Hart of Dixie' Town Doesn't Exist (VIDEO)

The new CW show 'Hart of Dixie' stars Rachel Bilson as Zoe Hart, a New York doctor who moves to Blue Bell, Alabama to work at a general practice. On 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Bilson talked about the "fish-out-of-water" story, which is executive-produced by former 'The O.C.' creator Josh Schwartz, and broke the news to Regis that Blue Bell isn't actually a real town. Regis and Kelly both seemed to liked the idea of the show actually shooting in Blue Bell. "I want to live there!" Kelly exclaimed. When Regis excitedly asked if Bilson had met any southern gentlemen while filming, she had to gently break the news that Blue Bell is just a fictional town, and that the show shoots on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California. "Maybe if it actually existed, and if we actually shot there ..." she lamented.

Jaime King: My Hart of Dixie Character Has a World of Hurt Inside Her

At first glance, Jaime King 's character Lemon Breeland on Hart of Dixie seems like the perfect Southern woman — with a side of attitude. But King says there's a world of hurt inside her. "You find out that Lemon's mother left her when she was 16 years old, so she has a really big hole there," King tells "This huge desire to be perfect, have people like her and to be the perfect woman comes from her thinking that maybe it's something she did that caused her mom to leave."
