Hart of Dixie
About the Show
Season two returns with fast-talking New Yorker Zoe Hart, whose carefully planned life as a cardio-thoracic surgeon in New York City somehow went awry. Zoe is now officially a general practitioner in tiny BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there’s a parade every Tuesday…but the townsfolk still aren’t quite sure what to make of Dr. Zoe Hart. Yet she won’t let that discourage her from being the best GP in the country. Last season, arriving in quaint, picturesque Bluebell, Zoe warmed to town golden boy, George Tucker, and clashed with Dr. Brick Breeland. Zoe’s presence will continue to cause friction with Brick’s daughter Lemon—the sweet southern belle that struggles to keep things civil with Zoe, especially after George calls off his wedding with Lemon, and all of BlueBell blames Dr. Hart. Zoe lives in the guesthouse of her best friend and Bluebell’s mayor, Lavon Hayes, her confidant and steadfast supporter. Next door, local bad-boy and mischievous charmer Wade Kinsella sparks a little fire within Zoe that leads to romance, despite the torch she carries for George.Full Episode List

Grant Gustin was the first person to audition for the role of “Barry Allen/The Flash” on Arrow—and he had to pass a chemistry test. Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity) was brought in to read with Grant—after which “it was like a done deal,” EP Andrew Kreisberg tells TVLine. “We wanted to make sure he didn’t seem like jailbait next to her,” he joked. The baby-faced Gustin is 33, and Rickards is 32. Barry and Felicity’s mutual attraction continues on this week’s midseason finale.
