“Hart of Dixie”: 4×01 – Kablang HD Screen Captures
Post Mortem: “Hart of Dixie” Boss on Zoe’s Surprise, Lemon’s True Love
“TV Line” — The following contains spoilers for Monday night’s season premiere of Hart of Dixie.
Hart of Dixie‘s Season 4 premiere sneak peek on Monday night brought a handsome new addition to Bluebell, but it’s one that’s still on the way that shocked Zoe.
After hooking up with Wade — though failing to win back his heart, sadly — the doc discovered she was pregnant.
Meanwhile, Lemon returned from her singles cruise with a saintly doctor of her own — but their romance is all a ruse.
Below, executive producer Leila Gerstein previews how Zoe and Wade will deal with their bun in the oven. The EP also reveals when we’ll learn to whom Lemon’s heart belongs and what’s in store for AnnaBeth.
TVLINE | How much did Rachel Bilson’s pregnancy impact the arc for Zoe? Was that something you always wanted to do? Or did you have to speed up the arc?
It’s not like I had a humongous plan for what Season 4 was. When you’ve done 66 episodes, you don’t even have time to think. I knew the endgame, but I didn’t know how we were going to get there… Rachel being pregnant and the decision to write her pregnancy in definitely became the creative choice that fueled what her and Wade’s relationship was. If that character got pregnant, that’s it. That’s going to be the most important thing that’s ever going to happen to her, and her and Wade.
Yes, that really dictated what the season was, but I was so grateful because it really gave us a new way to the story. I like to think I would, but I’m not sure that I could have, come up with something as great. Maybe I would have had her get pregnant later on, but to know that I had to write her pregnancy into the first episode because she was already six months pregnant… We really just had to expedite things. It just makes a very clear story. It was very clear to me the second that I knew she was pregnant, they’re going to have sex, because I’m not going to have her have someone else’s baby.
TVLINE | It’s such a big thing for the characters. How does it change them?
The idea that you’re going to be a parent— as somebody who is a parent —suddenly you’re like, “Oh, my God.” You have to cut through the bullsh-t. You have to grow up. Because from the moment you find out, you have, what, seven-and-a-half months to figure out how to be a grown up and take care of someone else? There’s not going to be time for that, “Will they or won’t they?” They’re going to have to figure it out really fast, because someone else is going to be dependent on them.
TVLINE | In the next episode, Zoe seems to be in the headspace of, “I’m going to do this alone.” Is Wade going to come around and make a go of it in a more committed way?
All of this will be answered in Episode 3. Like, so fast.
TVLINE | Lemon and Henry are pretending to date, but could that turn into a legit romance?
Her heart is not with Henry Dalton. We will know exactly where Lemon’s heart lies by the end of Episode 3.
TVLINE | What’s going on in AnnaBeth’s love life?
AnnaBeth, at the end of Season 3, broke up with Davis Polk because she realized she still has feelings for Lavon. Those feelings have not gone away, and AnnaBeth does not know that Lavon is in love with her best friend. So that is going to lead to some complications in the early part of the year. But this is a big season for AnnaBeth. She’s going to embark on a new career and find new love. Things are looking very good for AnnaBeth.
TVLINE | And what about Cricket, who came out of the closet?
This will be the year where Cricket starts dating her first woman. She’s still kooky, adorable Cricket. She’s exactly the same.
“Hart of Dixie”: 4×02 – TBD Promo
Hey everybody! Check out the promo for the next all new episode of “Hart of Dixie,” airing on Friday, January 9, 2015. Unfortunately we don’t get any new scenes throw into the promo, but it’s still nonetheless exciting just to have the show back in full force! Stay tuned for high definition screen captures from last night’s premiere. Enjoy!
“Hart of Dixie” Boss on Season 4’s Quick Pace, ‘Zade’ Romance Challenges
“TV Line” — Get ready for the Great Farewell to Bluebell Party of 2015!
No, that doesn’t necessarily mean Hart of Dixie‘s 10-episode fourth season will be its last — The CW has yet to declare a verdict on that front — but regardless of what happens, the town denizens will be getting a proper goodbye. And yet, there’s still hope for more stories.
Creator Leila Gerstein tells TVLine that she plans to give all the characters “a happy, celebratory conclusion” at the end of the upcoming run, “while still leaving some doors open for the future.”
However, “I do feel like 76 episodes of these particular love stories is plenty,” she says.
Below, Gerstein previews Monday’s season premiere sneak peek (airing at 8/7c) and what’s in store for Zoe and Wade’s rocky romance.
TVLINE | How did you approach the season with the shorter episode order and not knowing if it was the last one?
Ten episodes gives us a real opportunity to tell a lot of story really fast. It was very liberating after 66 episodes. [Laughs] It’s a really tricky thing when you create a show. Particularly because it’s a romantic comedy, you can’t set up a beginning, middle and an end because you have no idea when the end is, and you don’t even know how to parse it out. It’s kind of crazy, so things just [zigzag]. But we did decide to take all the central love stories and bring them to an end. We actually had been saving a lot of stuff for whatever was the end. So we just decided to burn through it this year.
TVLINE | At the end of the Season 3 finale, Zoe vowed to Wade that she was going to prove that they belong together. What’s her plan?
Of course, Zoe being Zoe, she will begin the episode going about it all the wrong ways. She will first ask him to the movies, which is all low key. Then Wanda and AnnaBeth convince her to make a big romantic gesture, which she will also do to no avail. She will try seduction. And she will try various things in her confused Zoe way.
TVLINE | Without spoiling too much, I was impressed by how much restraint and strength Wade has when she’s coming at him. What’s the issue for him that’s making him hold steady on his stance?
Zoe has burned Wade. Before Zoe, he never put himself on the line for anyone ever. Everything came easy for Wade until he met this woman. And then he put himself out there for her at the end of Season 2, and not only did she stay in New York, she came back with a new guy. She devastated him. Going back in those waters is not something he thinks his heart can take.
TVLINE | Tell me about this new guy, Henry (played by Hawaii Five-0‘s Ian Anthony Dale), whom Lemon brings home.
He is a doctor. He is perfect in every way. He is grandma Breeland’s dream guy.
TVLINE | With this seemingly perfect man in the picture, do Lavon or George have any hope?
Poor Lavon and George. It was already horrible enough when they found out each was the other’s competition. ‘Cause it’s not like Lavon or George are so shabby either. If I was George Tucker, I’d be pretty intimidated by Lavon, and vice versa. They already have a lot of competition and suddenly, this guy shows up and one-ups them in every way. He’s a borderline saint. That makes them completely infuriated and frustrated. So they’re going to have to get over their own grievances with each other to band together and get rid of Dr. Henry Dalton.
TVLINE | It seems like you were able to get Laura Bell Bundy back on a more regular basis.
Laura Bell Bundy is a series regular on Anger Management, but they’re really generous at FX about letting their series regulars be guest cast. On networks, they only let their series regulars do like two episodes. So we have Laura Bell Bundy back for a bunch of episodes. She and Brick are going to make a go of it this year, and I think that they are delicious together. I love them.

“Hart of Dixie”: Season 4 Trailer Released
The season four trailer for “Hart of Dixie” was released today! You can view the 1-minute trailer below and don’t forget to catch the season four premiere on Friday, January 9th, 2015 at 8PM on The CW!
Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen Welcome a Baby Girl! Find Out Her Disney Princess Name
“E! Online” — Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are parents!
The longtime couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl, her rep confirms to E! News. “Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson welcome their daughter Briar Rose Christensen born on October 29, 2014,” the couple said in a statement. “Both mother and baby are healthy and doing well. They are asking for privacy and subscribe to the No Kids Policy.”
For those of you who don’t know the story behind their daughter’s Disney princess-inspired moniker, Briar Rose was the nickname that the three fairies called Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty.
So concludes one of our favorite parades of pregnancy fashion—from loose-fitting sundresses to fitness outfits, the 33-year-old Bilson managed to look comfortable and remain stylish over the past several months. In fact, some ensembles made us think twice about whether the Hart of Dixie star was actually that close to giving birth.
But as any expectant mom knows, even the most effortless-looking of pregnancies is going to involve a few cravings.
Bilson was no different as photographers spotted her enjoying healthy smoothies and other beverages throughout the summer months. The actress was also seen savoring a few burgers at Five Guys in Los Angeles.
Earlier this year, before it was revealed that the former O.C. starlet was expecting, Bilson shared her hopes of having a family in the near future.
“I’ve always wanted to be a mom,” she told Health magazine. “I have always wanted kids. I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house.”
And in her opinion, she’s got just the right guy by her side. Bilson told Health about Christensen, “He’s so incredibly supportive and considerate. It’s so basic—that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you’re older. I’ve been in my relationship for seven years, so we’ve grown up together in a way. This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa.”
E! News first confirmed Bilson and Christensen were expecting back in May. Bilson first went back to filming Hart of Dixie before enjoying a babymoon in Barbados with her main man in June.
The Hollywood twosome first met on the set of Jumper and began dating back in 2007. The duo got engaged in December 2008 but called it off in August 2010, only to reconcile three months later. They’ve been together ever since.
Us Weekly first reported the birth.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
“Hart of Dixie”: The CW Sets Season 4 Date for Jan. 9th
“TV Line” — Pregnant or not, here she comes!
Dr. Zoe Hart, along with the rest of the BlueBell gang, will return for Hart of Dixie‘s 10-episode fourth season on Friday, Jan. 9, at 8/7c, The CW announced Tuesday.
As for whether or not Rachel Bilson’s titular character will have a bun in the oven this season, that remains a mystery… for now.
“[Dixie creator] Leila Gerstein is planning to have a pregnancy eventually happen to the character of Zoe Hart,” CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters back in July. (Key word: “eventually.”)
Masters of Illusion, hosted by Dean Cain (Lois & Clark), also returns Jan. 9 at 9 pm, leading into reruns of Whose Line is it Anyway?
The CW Network’s 2014 Upfront
Rachel Bilson’s Got Heart
If there’s one thing Rachel Bilson is looking forward to, it’s downloading the decider app onto her iPhone, to help her make little decisions more easily. “Oh my God,” she says. “I need it right now!”
It’s a little surprising that she feels indecisive, considering the great calls she has made in life so far. After co-starring for five years on the hit show The O.C., Rachel, 32, picked another winner, the CW’s Hart of Dixie, now in its third season. She’s also a whiz at choosing side projects. First she collaborated with her stylist on the site ShoeMint.com, and then she launched a “Southern-style” dishware line called Edie Rose for Macy’s.
When we meet up, Rachel orders granola and yogurt so her boyfriend of seven years, actor Hayden Christensen, won’t have to dine alone later. “It’s so close to dinnertime, and I know he’ll want to eat,” she says, apologizing. Otherwise, she goes on, “he’ll be like, ‘What? You ate?!'” Over snacks and appetizers, I steal a few of her style secrets, find out the weird thing that happens when she binges on her guilty pleasure and hear how she quiets her chatty brain so she can soak up the present.
You became famous fast at 21. How did you avoid ending up a party kid?
I grew up in L.A. and did all that when I was younger. I went to the clubs and did all the drugs and alcohol. I got it out of my system, so by the time I was on The O.C., I was like, “Wow, I can just enjoy this.” Then I started dating a co-star [Adam Brody], so it was more of a domesticated thing; you’re just home or with friends—and not out to party.
What’s a perfect healthy day to you?
I think it’s really nice to wake up in the morning and walk outside. And I like to relax. I really think your state of mind is so important. It’s all about being happy. That’s the biggest thing to having a healthy life. There’s too much focus on weight and how you look, and a healthy lifestyle to me is a healthy state of mind.
