Season 1, Episode 16 | February 27th, 2012
Much to Brick’s (Tim Matheson) disappointment, George (Scott Porter) is named Bluebell’s Man of the Year. As the town’s mayor, Lavon (Cress Williams) is expected to host a cocktail party in George’s honor, but for obvious reasons this is a difficult situation for Lavon given his history with Lemon (Jaime King). Fortunately for Lavon, Zoe (Rachel Bilson) agrees to step in and help him with the party, but things take a turn for the disastrous when Zoe has to improvise a speech at the gathering. Meanwhile, Magnolia (Claudia Lee) begs Wade (Wilson Bethel) to write a song and perform it with her at the party.
