Zoe Finds Out Why Dr. Wilkes Was So Interested in Her on 'Hart of Dixie' (VIDEO)

'Hart of Dixie' series premiereIt's been four years since we said goodbye to Summer Roberts on the series finale of 'The OC,' and with her Rachel Bilson. She's made a few appearances in film and on television since then, but she hasn't been with us on a regular basis, until 'Hart of Dixie' (Mon., 9PM ET on The CW).

In this new series, Bilson plays Dr. Zoe Hart, who wants to be a big-time surgeon, but is advised she needs to work on her bedside manner. Throughout her career, she's been plagued by postcards from a doctor in Alabama, offering to let her work by his side.

Finally, on her last hope, she heads down to take him up on his offer for a year so she can get her desired career back on track. But that's when everything goes sideways.


I hate to say it, but this show was tailor-made for me to dislike it, and yet I didn't. In fact, I found myself rather charmed by Ms. Bilson, and the town of Bluebell, Alabama. It may not have been where Dr. Hart wanted to go, as she intended to follow her father, but it turns out it's exactly where she was meant to be.

The big twist, as it turns out, was that the strange old Dr. Harley Wilkes from Alabama who'd been following her career and in constant contact with her over the years had a reason to be so interested in her. And when her mother showed up to take her back to New York, Hart found out what it was.

Wilkes died before Hart arrived, but he left his half of the town's practice to her. He did it because she was his daughter, something her mother tried desperately to keep from her.

It's enough to keep Hart in Bluebell, where she'll probably continue to clash with the doctor she shares the office with, despite the two of them coming together when it counted to deliver a baby this week. She'll probably find love and heartache as well, and make friends and enemies. But most importantly, she'll probably find enough viewers to make this another mid-sized hit for The CW.
