Weeds- Saplings

Nancy and Silas visit the south at the invitation of a man with Big Tobacco who wants to get things ready for the moment weed becomes legal. We never thought about that. It makes sense that when pot is legalized, Big Tobacco will sweep in and take it over. They are in the best position to do so. This season has partly been about the future of weed. Keep in mind the pharmaceutical usage and how it was turned into a pill. It’s crazy that the old man and his son haven’t spoken in two years, even though they live in the same house. Nancy should really let Silas do what he wants, but she should express her reservations. That’s all you can do when your kids are grown. The Silas/Nancy plotline was sad and less fun than the other stuff in the episode.

 There wasn’t a whole lot of Shane in the beginning of the episode, then he shows up in just the stupidest car to pick up Angela. Things go very wrong when some friends of the crook whose car was impounded steal that car from Shane, along with Angela’s gun, while Shane and Angela park to have sex. Everything in this season has gone well for the Botwins. There’s been some soapy Andy drama, and Nancy’s recovery hasn’t been perfect, but other than that, there haven’t been any moments where we have been like, “Oh no, what now?” So when Shane’s ride was stolen, we caught a whiff of the old Weeds. In seasons past, there was tension. Lately, it’s been all peaceful and nice. Doug actually has to take care of real homeless people. HA!

Andy has been dumped by Jill, and he has lunch with Rabbi Dave and one of their snarky students who hates his new stepdad. Dave feels bad for sleeping with Nancy and rumors of their tryst are circulating. But when he sees Nancy again, he starts kissing her. Yay! Andy meets Joanna with the Frankenfingers at the restaurant. Yeah, we really wouldn’t pull out the fact that we’d had two fingers reattached right away. Of course, with Andy it worked, especially since she shares his love of bikes. She’s Jewish and, at first glance, perfect for him. So Andy marries her immediately. This just confirms Miranda Hobbes’s theory about guys and romance. “The one” isn’t fate; it’s just dumb luck. Guys are like cabs. When they want to get married, their light goes on, and the next girl he dates…BOOM…she’s the one. Andy wants kids and a family. Boom, Joanna’s the one.

Episode grade: B


  1. I believe you got it wrong with Andy´s plot-line.
    Joanna was his waitress at the restaurant he was having a meal with rabbi Dave and the Kid.
    While he was praising how Nancy was supposed to be to Rabbi Dave, he noticed that Joanna was all that.
    So, he stayed at the restaurant after Rabbi Dave and the kid left to talk to her.
    She then mentioned her Frankenfingers to him. After that they were shown at the Court House to get married.

    1. Ugh, you're totally right. That's what happens when we watch TV while doing other things (like surfing the internet). Thanks!
