hart of dixie family tradition vivian 'Hart of Dixie' first look: Zoe meets her Wilkes cousin Vivian in 'Family Tradition'

Zoe Hart has been working at her late father Harvey Wilkes’ medical practice in Bluebell for three seasons now on “Hart of Dixie,” but we have yet to meet any other family members from Zoe’s biological paternal side. 

All that is about to change, as “Paranormal Activity 3” star Lauren Bittner guest stars in the upcoming episode, “Family Tradition,” as Vivian, Zoe’s cousin on her Wilkes side. How do these two long-lost cousins reunite? In a purely coincidental fashion, Zoe and Joel want to buy a new home that is currently owned by Vivian.

While we’re excited to meet a long-lost relative of Zoe’s, we’re less than thrilled that Zoe and Joel are looking to buy a home together. As we’ve made it pretty clear: Joel is the worst.

Read the full episode synopsis below:

“Zoe and Joel (guest star Josh Cooke) are ready to find a more permanent place to live and find the perfect place is actually owned by a relative of Zoe’s biological father’s relatives. After tracking the relative down, Zoe is unsure whether she is ready to face her extended family. Due to the success Lemon and Wade have had with the Rammer Jammer, Lemon receives an offer that she may not be able to refuse. AnnaBeth seems eager for Lavon to go out of town, causing him to wonder what she is up to. Meanwhile, George and Lynly’s (guest star Antoinette Robertson) connection continues to grow, but George is still reluctant to make a move.”
