Synopsis[edit | edit source]

DISCOVERING WHAT IS IMPORTANT — George (Scott Porter) is given the responsibility of watching Tansy’s (guest star Mircea Monroe) most prized possession, her dog, but panics when the dog goes missing. Wade (Wilson Bethel) starts to feel frustrated by the lack of alone time with Zoe (Rachel Bilson), especially when she is focused more on not losing her good status in the town to a new doctor, Jonah (guest star Travis Van Winkle), who also happens to be Brick’s (Tim Matheson) nephew. Brick is ready to let the town know about his relationship with Shelby (guest star Laura Bell Bundy), but Lemon (Jaime King) and Magnolia (guest star Claudia Lee) are doing everything they can to get rid of her. Meanwhile, Lavon (Cress Williams) wants to take a chance on a new relationship, but first has to clear the air with one person. Jeremiah Chechik directed the episode written by Carter Covington.
