“Hart of Dixie” should just go ahead and make a compilation album of all of their musically-themed episode titles. If nothing else, it’d be useful instead of trying to actually figure out what some of these titles actually mean in advance.
Take, for example, the title of this story. According to SpoilerTV, the title for the fifth episode of the upcoming third season is “How Do You Like Me Now.” In addition to this being a rather confident song about self-reliance and independence, it suggests to us that someone is going to pull some sort of drastic makeover straight out of “She’s All That,” and then parade around the streets of Bluebell and show everyone what’s what.
Is this a slight exaggeration? Probably, but to us, it feels clear that there is going to be some sort of vindictive spirit behind this title. You don’t have a “how do you like me now?” feeling unless you feel like you’ve been slighted in some way, and you suddenly have something that you want to prove. It could be about Lemon or Annabeth proving that it’s wrong to underestimate them, or who knows? Maybe one of the guys has somehow found a way to work out even more, and they want to parade around with their new six-pack for all to see.
The new “Hart of Dixie” season returns to The CW on Monday, October 7, and should answer a few questions including Zoe’s relationship status, what happens with Lemon courtesy of Jaime King’s real-life pregnancy, and how a few new faces (including “Chuck’s” Captain Awesome!) start to shape this tiny Alabama town into something new.
