Inside Tonight's 'Hart of Dixie'

Although Bluebell seems to exist in its own reality, the town, much like the real world, is facing a crucial election as Mayor Lavon Hayes runs for re-election against Ruby Jeffries and tonight is time to vote!

The episode, titled I Walk The Line, is doubly special as Tim Matheson, who plays Brick Breeland, also directed the installment And while directing is nothing new to the TV icon (this is his fourth time helming a Dixie ep and he's previously been behind the lens on The West Wing, Suits, White Collar, The Twilight Zone and St. Elsewhere to name a few), prior to Dixie, Tim had never directed and starred on a series before.

"It's two of my favorite things to do," Tim tells of working with his co-stars in this dual capacity. "It's such a great gift, and this is truly an amazing group of actors. This is some of the most enjoyable work I've ever done."

But while Tim is having a grand old time, Brick is not. "He's facing an odd situation having been in a relationship for 13 years," Tim says. "This is his first chance to be a single man and it's harder than he thought." And when unlikely allies unite to de-grumpify Brick, the most unexpected thing happens.

"Magnolia and Zoe try to figure out why Brick is acting this way, and once they do, Zoe actually becomes his counselor and helps him resolve the problem," Tim reveals. He adds that this is just the start of some truly heart-warming episodes coming to fans. "We just shot the holiday episode, that Leila [Gerstein, creator] wrote. It's so fun, so emotional, very charming and full of surprises. It's just a delight. I think the fans will love it."

Hart of Dixie airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
