Porter explained that Lemon (Jaime King) will ban his character George from seeing Zoe (Rachel Bilson).
However, Porter told TV Line that George will ignore Lemon's demands.
"George does the exact opposite," he said. "And not out of spite, but because it's what he feels is right. Someone's got to help her because the town turns on her very quickly, and George won't stand for it."
Porter added that George may not come out of the situation well, saying: "He's squarely in the middle of Zoe and Lemon. And he might be viewed in the town as a bad guy, even though what he's doing is right."
Hart of Dixie, which will feature a guest appearance from Mircea Monroe later this season, airs on Mondays at 9/8c on The CW.
