Sometimes I really hate being right and unfortunately I was proven right about Wade in “Where I Lead,” this week’s episode of Hart of Dixie. Honestly though…it doesn’t feel good. I didn’t want to be right; I didn’t want him to have actually slept with the chick he sauntered off with after last week’s failure at the Battle of the Bands. I just had a sick feeling that he did, and…well…yeah. Being right can sure suck.
I can’t condone cheating. What Wade did was wrong in every sense, and flat-out lying about it to Zoe only made it worse, but to his credit he did acknowledge just how badly he’d screwed up. He didn’t try to blame her or make her feel like she drove him to it. When the truth finally came out, or I should say when Zoe put the pieces together and listened to her gut, Wade didn’t try to weasel his way out of it, even though it did mean that he lost Zoe’s trust and her heart.
As for where they go now, I couldn’t say. There’s obviously still feelings there; infidelity doesn’t just make them go away. But Zoe seemed to think this was the one thing she wouldn’t be able to forgive Wade for doing. Whether that’s just her hurt talking or not remains to be seen.
Having not been completely entrenched in the Wade-Zoe romance, I can’t say this for certain, but it does feel like a bit of slap in the face for all the fans who got so behind this romance. I mean, why turn George into a secondary character in favor of pairing Zoe with Wade if this was the plan all along? It seems a little odd to me. I mean, the course of true love doesn’t run smooth, I know that, but it’s hard to bounce back from cheating.
In other news, Wanda and Tom got married in an absolutely adorable geek ceremony, with Zoe as the maid of honor (so she could keep tabs on Wanda’s wild mother) and Wade as the best man (so he could give virgin Tom some pre-wedding night sex tips, ie: be his sex Yoda). Meanwhile Lemon and Annabeth kissed (not literally) and made up after their Lavon troubles. But is this just a temporary truce? Annabeth is still giving the mayor looks; that flame hasn’t died just yet. Will Lemon be able to handle it?
