Old habits die hard, and in this week’s episode of Hart of Dixie, “The Gambler,” Wade proved it when, after losing a battle of the bands contest and the twenty thousand dollar prize that would have helped him open his bar, he reverted to his old, womanizing ways. See, this is why I just could never fully get behind him and Zoe. I kept feeling it was going to go like this.
Because Wade, for all of his swamp wisdom and street smarts, has absolutely no self-confidence. He has decided that trying to make something more out of his life would take way too much effort and change, so he sabotages every opportunity and chance that comes along. Zoe might be blissfully ignorant for now, but it’s only a matter of time before she finds out about his boobalicious consolation prize. I’d like to see him try to argue his way out of that one, or try to make it seem like Zoe is the one with the problem, which is pretty much what he always does. This time, she did nothing wrong except try to be honest about his band and help him improve so that he could win.
