A surprise visit from George’s parents forced Zoe and Wade and George and Tansy to confront thelingering tension between them in “Islands in the Stream,” this week’s episode of Hart of Dixie. To no one’s surprise, George’s snobby folks weren’t too keen about him living on a boat with a divorced hairstylist; they, or more specifically his mama, want him to be with Zoe, the educated doctor. If only they knew that Tansy’s often way more smart than Dr. Hart.
Long story short, Mama Tucker basically trapped Zoe and George on the boat and forced them to admit that they still have feelings for each other, just in time for Wade and Tansy to show up via canoe. But it’s all right because both Zoe and George realized that those feelings aren’t strong enough to make them want to leave their current relationships. George is happy with Tansy and Zoe is happy with Wade, and anything else is just background noise. It doesn’t need attention right away.
