Weeds "See Blue and Smell Cheese and Die"
Season 8/ Episode 3
can feel the show wrapping up loose ends and coming to a close.It’s like at the end of August (even in
Florida) you can feel the impending autumn in the air even though it is still
hot.And Weeds is still plenty hot.
brother-in-law Andy has been putting in some serious sack-time with Nancy’s
sister. Even in Nancy’s hospital
room.Don’t worry, it wasn’t weird.Nancy was in a coma at the time.Anyhow, Jill’s husband has left her,Jill’s kids are starting to warm up to Andy
when he becomes their hockey coach, and I thinkJill may be “The One” for Andy..Will Andy finally give up womanizing and settle down.
of "The One", will Nancy and her second husband, Peter Scottson, be reunited? Nancy
secretly married him in the second season, but he was a DEA agent and he was
killed. Tragically, Nancy’s drug dealings appear to have played a role in his
death.Death makes the likelihood of a
reunion between the two a tad unlikely, but, hey, this is TV..Also, as I remember it, he is presumed dead;
I don’t think they ever found a body. Perhaps his death was faked and he’s been
working undercover all this time.I
always liked Peter and I’d like to see him and Nancy back together.
reason I starting to hope for this reunion is because Nancy’s son , Shane has
discovered “the shooter” –the person who shot Nancy in the head.It is Peter’s son from his first marriage Tim,
who blames Nancy for his father’s death.Perhaps Peter’s son has been added to the show as a foreshadowing of
Peter’s return.Nancy is clearly a “manizer”
(if men can womanize, why can’t women womanize.?), but perhaps she will settle
down at the end of the last season..
I digress.Back to the plot. When Nancy
and her older son, Silas, learn what Shane his discovered, a mad dash ensues to
find Tim and get him into hiding before Shane finds him and kills him.All three of them find Tim at about the same
time, but Shane does not kill Tim, he arrests him.
who killed a woman in a previous season when he overheard her plotting to kill
Nancy, and who has shown psychopathological tendencies ever since, has joined
the police force.
