Weeds: The Love Circle Overlap
Her self-awareness has yielded some positive results, like her dinner table apology and her throwdown with Lisa, but we've yet to see any significant changes. Will this week's discovery make a difference?
"No more hiding." Nancy's ayahuasca trip brought about the latest realization. The carefree days of bringing pot to the bored, suburban masses are over. She's part of an organization that is far more dangerous than she first thought. Nancy was able to justify drug dealing during season two's tomato talk with Shane, but human trafficking is another matter. It's harder for Nancy to delude herself when the victims are looking into her eyes. That young girl with the butterfly bag will haunt her thoughts for quite a while. No more lies; people are being hurt, and it's time for Nancy to accept her share of the responsibility.
Did Esteban help Nancy make this breakthrough, or is he part of the problem that she mentioned on the beach? She had a serious look on her face when Esteban asked if he'd made everything better. I doubt that Nancy will ever let another man take care of her and protect her the same way that Judah did. She wasn't equipped to be the head of the household when he died, and she's struggled with her role as a single mom. There's no way that she'd set herself up for that kind of a loss again. Nancy knows that she has to maintain control of her own life and family, whether Esteban's in the picture or not.
The Botwin boys had their own relationship challenges to deal with. Shane spent the night with his two groupies from last week, and may or may not have had sex with them. This show never holds back when it comes to mature content, so it's extremely likely that Shane went through with it. For the record, I hope he didn't. Shane is the last kid that I'd describe as innocent, but he should get to keep this last shred of childhood a bit longer. Silas went from dumped to doormat pretty fast. He's basically a nanny who accepts sex as payment instead of cash and refrigerator privileges. I'm so over Lisa and the whole MILF storyline. This relationship needs to end, or at least become funnier. Rad and his babysitter are definitely not the next great comedy duo.
Speaking of humor, Celia made me laugh for the first time in several episodes. I knew that she had that fork-wielding tirade in her. Isabelle spelled out the problems with Celia, both as a person and a character. She used to be mean-spirited and judgmental, the kind of woman who hid laxatives in her daughter's candy stash. Everyone wants that Celia back, and the show needs her back. The intervention was this episode's only funny moment, and it needed more. Here's hoping that Doug's budding relationship with Mermex can get things back on track.
My favorite lines of the night:
- "No one tries to get out of sex with me" --Esteban, speaking the truth
- "Who could resist a little capsule-shaped escape?" --Celia
- Anytime that Sanjay mentioned his baby's name: Jimmy Jam.
