After months of innocent flirting, Dr. Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) and Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel) finally hooked up during the season finale of Hart of Dixie. The only problem? Moments later, George Tucker (Scott Porter) called off his wedding to Lemon Breeland (Jaime King) and showed up at Zoe’s door to profess his love.
“I think they’re going to play with the love triangle a bit, and I have no idea who she’s going to end up with!” Bilson, 30, told Us Weekly at The CW Upfront event in NYC May 17. “I think that’ll be fun to see.”
It will also pose a lot of problems, according to Porter, 32. “You’ve got George putting Zoe in an unfair predicament because of the fallout of the wedding not happening, and then eventually you’re going to see Wade and George at odds. So everyone that he has in his life is going to be turning their back on him in one way or another.”
Lemon, meanwhile, will struggle to maintain her perfect image now that George has very publicly ended their engagement. “Lemon’s greatest conflict is trying to be perfect for everyone all the time rather than being who she really is. I don’t think she remembers who she is or what that looks like,” King, 33, told Us. “I hopefully feel like this next season, I’ll be able to explore who she really is in her heart beyond being this perfect exterior for everybody else.”
Of course, Lemon may not stay single for long if she gets back together with former fling Lavon Hayes (Cress Williams, 43). “I think it’d be really fun to see if she and Lavon could explore a relationship,” King said. “I love acting with Cress and I like that dynamic.”
Williams, however, joked that in Season 2, he’d like to see his character finally “court a girl who’s available!”
The second season of Hart of Dixie premieres Tuesday, October 2, at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
