appreciation thread

“You notice how whenever I come around there’s always s p a r k s?”

New Yorker Zoe Hart had her life all planned out perfectly. Then she found herself in BlueBell, AL living next door to local bad boy charmer, Wade Kinsella. Zoe’s picture-perfect plan did not include someone like Wade. Wade had never met a woman like Zoe Hart before who didn’t immediately fall for his smile. Despite being opposites, Wade and Zoe were obviously attracted to one another. Their friendship was filled with lot of flirtatious banter. Wade had a golden heart hidden behind his smile and carefree attitude. Wade had a soft spot for Zoe often helping her out even without her knowledge.
Zoe fought her attraction to Wade because she didn’t see it going anywhere. Wade fell hard for Zoe, but he often denied his growing feelings for her because she had developed a crush on town lawyer, George Tucker, which seemed to only reinforce the idea to Wade that he’d never be good enough for her. After being stranded together during a storm, Wade and Zoe opened up to one another and Wade admitted that there was something between them.

follow the signs right back to you

That night they finally gave into their attraction to one another and connected. Initially they tried to keep things strictly casual, but soon Wade wanted to take their relationship to the next step. After some hesitation on Zoe’s part she finally admitted to Wade that she really liked him and wanted him to be her boyfriend. Their differences meant that they had to overcome a lot of obstacles early in their relationship. Through these experiences their feelings for one another grew and strengthened. They make each other better and challenged one another. Zoe believes in Wade which makes him want to be the man she sees. Wade helps Zoe loosen up and really enjoy life. They make each other happy.

s e a s o n 1;

In the first season, Zoe meets her new neighbor, Wade Kinsella, after he blows the power. They have an immediate attraction to one another which manifests later that night as they makeout in his car. Wade often comes to Zoe’s aid. Wade secretly made gumbo for her and entered it into the gumbo cook off which took 2nd place. During the heat wave, Zoe almost gave into her growing attraction to Wade before it started to rain. Wade soon realizes, with the help of Tansy, that he feels something deeper for Zoe. Lavon urges Wade to drive Zoe to the airport and tell him how he feels. At Christmas, Wade asks Zoe out for a drink to which she smiles and asks for a raincheck. Wade is jealous when Zoe becomes involved with Judson and sets out to sabotage her evening with him. After Judson breaks up with Zoe because she is more excited about her prank war with Wade, she confronts Wade about liking her. He denies having any feelings for her and instead says that he won the town pool for when she and Judson would break up. Wade later apologizes for interfering, and Zoe assures him that Judson wasn’t her one true love which pleases Wade. Wade is surprised to find Zoe with his brother, Jesse. During an argument with Jesse, Wade says some unkind things about Zoe which she overhears. Wade wants to improve himself to impress Zoe. He asks Zoe to be his partner in the BlueBell Battle so he can use the prize money to open his own bar.
