Zoe & Wade's Relationship Arc On 'Hart Of Dixie' Is Beautifully Depicted In This One Graph
Shows may end, but certain parts of them live on far longer than their dwindling episodes. In the case of The CW's Hart Of Dixie , one of those things will certainly be the relationship between title character Zoe Hart and Wade Kinsella. Despite the fact that the romance wound up being the show's core, these two did not exactly have a smooth path to happiness. In fact, there was a time when they weren't even the show's one true pairing — George and Zoe's forbidden attraction, and the fact that they had mountains in common, led the way instead. But the chemistry between Zoe and Wade was just too undeniable — and their relationship actually revealed the best in each of them, something that's sometimes too rare in romantic relationships on television.

They yo-yo'd and zigzagged and even entered into serious relationships with other people, but "Zade" was there lurking in the bathroom even during that era when Joel claimed to be the man staking out Zoe's future. These two are memorable, and their journey deserves to be remembered. Right alongside how damn good Wade was at looking at Zoe:
So, to honor the memory of such an epic couple, we had to look back at their relationship, from those heated moments to those cold moments that made us all want to cry alongside Zoe and Wade.

They may have made each other immensely happy, but they could hurt each other more than anyone else, too.
