Did the Botwins Reunite and Find Family Peace on 'Weeds' Finale? (VIDEO)

'Weeds' - 'Do Her/Don't Do Her'It's been a crazy ride for the Botwin family, torn apart by greed and weakness throughout this season of 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime). But in last night's finale, Silas admitted his failings and apologized to Nancy.

Nancy got herself out of trouble with Heylia, who told her Silas wasn't happy in the city. So Andy came up with a solution to solve this problem, as well as Nancy's custody battle with her sister over Stevie. That solution jumped us ahead four months to Connecticut.

There we find that the Botwins are living together in a type of compound, allowing them to be a family without having to be that close to one another. But there are still secrets, as Shane is now attending the police academy while telling the family he's going to college.

So that's a thread that could be picked up should 'Weeds' get another season, while the final moments created the possibility of a finality for Nancy Botwin much like some speculate Tony Soprano got at the end of his series.

We wrap with a sniper in the woods near the compound who gets Nancy in his line of sight. Cut to black and then we hear the gunshot. Wide open possibilities, but as an ending, it shows perhaps that while the rest of the family may be able to get some peace, Nancy had to pay the price for her life?

What do you think 'Weeds' fans? Is it a good series finale, or does it make you want to demand Showtime bring it back -- they've not made up their minds yet -- for another season?

The show has been going down hill---but I was still watching... So if it comes back next season, I'll be there.
But I would let it RIP...

Yes one more season at least. That would be a terrible way to end the series.

I think the lack of posts here says it all. No one cares. For some reason I have kept watching even though the show has been terrible for the last 4 seasons. Maybe because its only a half an hour or that I have always had a crush on MLP. Either way I also do not care if that is the end or not. Truth be told I was relieved at the end because I think it finally is over. Just put this show out o everyone's misery and let us get on with our lives.

I think they should renew it one more time. They finally seemed to get their groove back this season. I almost gave up after the last couple, but I think they are on a roll.
