Andy Decides to Kidnap the Competition on 'Weeds' (VIDEO)

'Weeds' - 'System Overhead'Emma turned the Botwin family's world upside down, but in Andy's case it was quite literal. After taking Silas for an emotional, and physical ride, she then took the "brain" of the Botwin family drug business on last week's 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime).

Then, she decided to literally turn Andy's bike shop upside down, hanging from the ceiling what was on the floor and vice-versa. While it was a pretty trippy visual, we're not sure what she was trying to prove. How powerful her organization was, perhaps?

Probably, as she was certainly pretty cocky and sure of herself when Silas confronted her on the sidewalk. She even remained cool and aloof when Andy showed up on the scene with a nail gun to kidnap her.

"It's not like you're going to do anything anyway," she laughed. "Not in broad daylight."

In a brilliantly hilarious, and equally sad statement about our modern society, Andy then proved why she was wrong. He shouted to the passersby, "Hey, I'm murdering somebody. Killing them. It's bad. Bloody. Does anybody care?"

Once they got her back to their place, both Silas and Nancy showed up, and then each decided to handle the problem in their own way. In doing so, they created a new problem. Communication, people! Is it so hard?

While Silas appeared to convince Emma that a genuine union of their organizations could be mutually beneficial, Nancy was convincing the officer who arrested Shane to take Emma down. But now that their organizations are linked, won't the cop be taking them both down?

Of course, everything is crazy and the Botwins are on the verge of big trouble. This is 'Weeds,' isn't it? At least we got to see Andy be assertive and get things taken care of this week. He even got Emma to wear her seatbelt while he was kidnapping her. That's just sensible and really for her safety. He's a thoughtful guy like that.
