CHRISTMAS IN BLUEBELL – Zoe (Rachel Bilson) encourages Rose (guest star McKaley Miller) to enter the annual Miss Cinnamon Cider Pageant even though Lemon’s (Jaime King) younger sister, Magnolia Breeland (guest star Claudia Lee), is a shoo-in to win. Of course, with Zoe coaching Rose and Lemon coaching Magnolia, rivalry takes on a whole new meaning. Meanwhile, George (Scott Porter) and Wade (Wilson Bethel) go on a road trip to pick up a Christmas tree for Bluebell’s town square. Also, in flashbacks, we learn some of the history of Lemon’s relationship with her mother, as well as the details of when Lemon and Lavon (Cress Williams) first realized they had a connection. David Paymer directed the episode written by David Babcock.
