Zoe goes to the Mayor's house for some coffee where Wade is there.  Wade and Zoe akwardly talk and Lavon shows up. Lavon says that he will take Zoe to the Rammer Jammer for coffee, but Wade is working shortly and would the one to make their coffees. So Lavon and Zoe stay at the house. 

Lemon comes into her father's house and is startled by Shelby.  She states that she is sprucing up the place.  Lemon says that she would be fond of getting of ridding some of things in the house, implying Shelby. Shelby wanted to toss out a heirloom old rug. Magnolia Breeland comes around the corner and states to her sister Lemon, that she doesn't want Shelby to take her to school. Shelby leaves. Magnolia and Lemon talk about that Brick and Shelby came back early from their vacation.  They hypothesize that Brick might have gotten annoyed by Shelby.

Shula Whittaker and another woman says to Wade is cruel and doesn't know what he messed up. George Tucker appears and says that Wade lied to his face. Dash Dewitt, Crickett, and other people say to Zoe that they are sorry about the breakup, giving her pies and other assortment of gifts.George comes up to Lavon and Zoe and tells Zoe that if he can do something to help he will, primarily ideas of punching Wade (punch him himself, have Tansy punch him again, and have other townspeople punch Wade). Zoe tells Lavon that she will go to work to forget about her problems. In the medical office, Jonah Breeland tells Zoe Hart that a breakup is better with mind-blowing sex with a sexy doctor.  Brick reveals that there are numerous pies at the office as well and Zoe says that Jonah were cover for her and leaves. 

Lemon's Plan[edit | edit source]

Still at the office, Jonah is curious why his uncle Brick is so happy and Brick reveals that he had an amazing time in New Orleans.  The reason why Shelby and Brick decided to come home early is to tell the girls (Lemon and Magnolia) that Brick wants Shelby to move in.

Lemon Breeland and Jonah Breeland talk about getting rid of Shelby.  Lemon forces Jonah to tell her about Brick wanting Shelby to move in. Lemon figures out that Brick and Shelby will tempt Magnolia into agreeing that Shelby should be able to move in by giving in fancy gifts. The two Breeland sisters meet up and Lemon warns Magnolia that she will dig up dirt on their father's girlfriend and Magnolia needs to resists the temptation.

Lemon go to her ex-fiancee George Tucker for help using the leaving her at the altar. George and Lemon look over Shelby's place to find any information about Shelby. They meet the real estate agent in charge, Brayden, and Lemon takes the opportunity to take vocal remarks about what George did to her. Brayden asks them if they are married, but Lemon remarks that George is so difficult to get down aisle. Then remarks about a promised gift, but she never got it due to the breakup.  After a bit, Lemon leaves George with the real estate agent to check the upstairs and more importantly the storage closet. Shelby tries to bribe Magnolia, but fails. Shelby and Brick talk and says they were out-Lemon Lemon. Magnolia is called by Lemon about the progress of finding out information; however, the resisting temptation isn't working for Magnolia since she is in a new car while on the phone with her sister.  George finds out that Shelby is behind in debt.  They hear that the real estate agent is touring another couple around and they are caught.  Before Brayden opened the door, George swings her around and kisses her. He says that "you know how it is when you're almost married" and they rush out. 

The reveal of the financial troubles goes disastrous when Brick tells Lemon that he was already aware of the financial troubles.  Shelby said that she would sign a pre-nuptial if they got married.  Lemon absolves George for leaving her at the altar, but jokingly says that she blames him for breaking up with Shelby (thus allowing Shelby to be able to date Brick).
