Mention OnlyEdit



  • This episode marks a turning point in many character's development
  • This episode also marks the day that Lemon has been trying her hardest to make perfect due to her guilt of her affair with Lavon Hayes.
  • Numerous things go wrong during the episode for the wedding and George tries his best to improvise a solution. Like the massive rainstorm, missing few members of the wedding/bridal party, the firehouse ceiling leaking, etc.
  • Zoe gets cut in the barb wire and Wade has to stitch her up in the barn.  After few hours, they are taken back to town by a police officer. Zoe is dropped off at her carriage house and Wade is taken to the gatekeepers house to get ready.  Then Zoe is somehow able to have the strength to wrap her legs around Wade and then she is pressed against the wall.  Then she is propped down onto the bed.  These actions doing the pre-sex may be contrary to how Zoe should be operating, because she should still be careful of the wound (or at least be in some noticeable pain).
  • George breaks the engagement off with Lemon and goes to Zoe to confess his feelings.
