After a long hiatus, we return to Bluebell with polka dots, tweed and lots o’ drama. Zoe’s father flies to Alabama to perform George’s father’s surgery, fixing Mr. Tucker’s heart but ultimately breaking Zoe’s. Lavon pines after Lemon (again), Lemon tries to destroy Zoe (again) and Wade tries to figure out what do with the rest of his life (wait, you mean being the hot, nonchalant bartender isn’t a “thing”?) Prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster: fists are waved, smiles are forced and more tears are shed than at an Adele listening party.
The episode begins with Zoe obsessively staring at her dad’s flight plan, giving us a little lesson in Facial Expressions While Staring at a Computer Screen 101:
This is pure gold, ladies and gentlemen. Acting classes around the world should study this episode. I can’t even figure out which one is my favorite, they’re all so damn good.
Wait. Found my fav:
Her facial expression might be “hardcore” but her outfit is far from it. Look at those super fab geometric earrings. But more on this later!
Lemon goes to the grocery store to prepare a care package for Mr. Tucker in a white, quilted cropped jacket and pink tie blouse. This outfit is okay. Not sure why she needs a jacket with a tie option as well as a blouse with a tie option. It’s unnecessary and redundant.
It’s unnecessary and redundant.
Meanwhile, Lavon stands in the corner looking like a major creep. Can’t a man take a hint?
Lemon looks like she’s literally fearing for her life. God, Lavon. You’re lucky you look great in your purple-stripes-green-khakis combo.
Back at the Rammer Jammer, we finally get a glimpse of Zoe’s full outfit as she prepares for a rumble with her dad. And let me say, this outfit is perfection for a father ass-whooping.
It’s also so quintessentially Zoe. Shorts? Check. Tweed? Check. Chanel bag? Double check!
In the C storyline, Shelly and Wade are pitted against each other to make a signature cocktail for the Rammer Jammer.
Leave it to the show’s stylist to make the show’s only Asian actress dress like a Minnie Mouse/Rosie the Riveter hybrid.
At least Wade looks good. This is one of his best outfits yet ‘cause it ain’t plaid. And that’s enough.
Very blue collar.
“Random” wholeheartedly agrees:
This redhead is apparently Wanda, the niece of the Rammer Jammer’s owner. But does anyone remember her as the shampoo girl who had syphilis and spread it to that pastor awhile back? Hm. I guess they left that little detail out. I’d remember those 2009 feather earrings anywhere.
At the hospital, George wakes up next to his father, still dressed in his tuxedo shirt. The only time when wearing the same thing from the night before is acceptable.
Awaiting her father’s arrival, Zoe practices her stink eye still looking absolutely gorg in this outfit.
We even get a closer look at her jacket, which has a leather trim:
Not only is she the Queen of Pattern, but she just hit the texture jackpot as well. Tweed, leather, silk– it don’t matter!
Zoe can’t maintain her anger and almost melts at the sight of her father. Maybe it’s because she realizes how alike they are in both medicine AND fashion.
Daddy Hart sure knows how to dress or more importantly, layer. Although, he is dressed a little too much like a Ralph Lauren ad for my taste.
Not sure about these X-Men Cyclops glasses either:
After a great family bonding heart surgery (Aw, I love those!!!), Zoe’s dad breaks her heart and says they can have a new relationship as “colleagues.”
The next day, Addie excitedly asks Zoe about her dad in this fiery, orange dress:
Addie is looking H-A-W-T hot. Her dress is a far cry from her tame florals and screams Rebecca Taylor. Was there a makeover scene that didn’t make it into this episode or something??
Also, it’s a tiny bit see-through. Move over Zoe Hart, we’ve got another inappropriately dressed employee at the practice!
Zoe assures Addie that she is fine with her new relationship with her dad. She also assures Addie that her style will continue to prevail with this amazing gray leopard print dress:
“Um, Addie? I’m the only one who’s allowed to dress like I’m hitting a club after work.”
Look at that exposed zipper and “made-for-her” cut! She is KILLING it. Even if it is the 10th leopard print dress of the season.
Like, seriously… is it OKAY for people to dress like this at a family practice, let alone, in a work environment? How come my doctor wears ugly patterned polos and pleated khakis? And his receptionist wears cat pins on her sweaters! CAT PINS!!!
One plane ticket to Bluebell, please!
