On the day of the Breeland-Tucker wedding, a storm hits Bluebell forcing George and Lemon to relocate the wedding and Wade and Zoe to take cover in a barn. In a surprising (yet, let's face it, utterly predictable) chain of events, George calls off the wedding to confess his love for Zoe... just after she finishes sexytime with Wade. Talk about bad timing. HoD's first season finale follows CW's formula to a T: a disastrous wedding + a love triangle with a bunch of hot people + exposed male body parts just because - believability = one hell of a season finale.
The episode opens with a dream. Because, you know, we don't get to see that a lot anymore:
For a second, I thought George was wearing a cardigan with shoulder pads. Which, though nightmarish, is at least more interesting than what he's actually wearing.
Why, in George's dream, do Lemon and Zoe both wear excessive amounts of jewelry? It doesn't really bother me that much; I'm too distracted by their textured wedding dresses.
They look like they're wearing mounds of cake frosting.
Not necessarily a bad thing.
Also, why, in George's dream, does Lavon dress super fab in a white tux?
It's time to give up when your nemesis dresses more fashionably than you even in your dreams.
Lemon calls George, interrupting his pre-wedding jitters dream and looking wedding-ready straight out of bed. Wow, this is the first time Lemon's hair isn't "done" and my hair will STILL never look as good as this.
Zoe, desperate to make up with Wade, comes bearing gifts of creme brulee coffee (does that really exist?) in this amazing red textured jacket.
I honestly cannot even deal with how cute this outfit is. It hurts just looking at it: red jacket, white tie blouse, leopard print belt, black trousers and platform booties. And that bag! GOOD LORDDDD. Perfect for objecting holy matrimony.
Unfortunately, this outfit won't help her win George back. Though after seeing the wedding photography, maybe that's a good thing...
Lavon comes to warn George of a storm while wearing possibly his most fashionable outfit of the entire series:
Seriously, Lavon. You're killing it. Head-to-toe. Killing it.
Even Swan agrees.
"What?? ...I swear, I style myself."
Back at the Breeland estate, the bridal party awaits Lemon's arrival. Magnolia prepares for her maid-of-honor role by wearing this pale yellow 3D dress.
This dress is a homerun. Look at the back:
Cricket, on the other hand, prepares for the wedding by gluing a bunch of Skittles to a terry top.
A storm hits Bluebell, just as Lavon predicted, and the bridesmaids struggle to keep Lemon from finding out. Magnolia dons this over-the-top flower headpiece, which reminds me of what I wore to my cousin's wedding as a flower girl in 1993.
Whoa, sorry, Lem. I heard the 90s were coming back...?
