Weeds Review: "Boomerang"
Every bizarre and outlandish antic we've come to know and love about the Botwins throughout the years was jam-packed into one ridiculously outrageous half-hour in last night's episode, "Boomerang."
It amazes me how the writers can still surprise me to this very day. By the end of the half-hour, I was sitting there speechless with only one question on my mind: How in the heck will Nancy get herself and her loved ones out of yet another mess?!?
Esteban's goons are able to track down where they are hiding, thanks to two equal parts. One being Doug's ability to track down Andy's cell phone (BTW, didn't he wreck that thing?) and another being Andy's move of registering his minivan in Sean's name. Normally, you might be able to let Andy go by saying he was stoned, but has he even really been smoking that much?
One of the most hilarious scenes from last night's episode had to be Doug digging his own grave and having his life spared because the minivan people called Andy's cell phone about the flat tire. Coincidence, God... same thing, right? Well, as fortune has it, Esteban's goons believed it was an act of God to keep this fella alive. Phew! For a second there, I really believed my favorite character was a goner!
Poor Silas. I think Shane got it right when he told him that he is the blond sheep of the family. He finally realizes how good he could have it if he just would have stayed on the normal teenage course and, yet again, the rug he's standing on gets ripped right out from under him.
Meanwhile... step aside, Dina Lohan. Nancy gets the award for being the world's worst mom. Silas doesn't have any choice in staying and as much as that scene from the first episode this season showed Silas choosing to stay, I doubt if he left, Nancy would have let him leave.
It would have been comical to watch Nancy kick her co-worker's butt. All we got to see is her slam the door and come out with tousled hair and a bloody nose.
Shane decides to take matters yet again into his own hands when dealing with the SAHMs. Naturally, blackmail doesn't cut it and before you can say I told you so, these ladies bring the authorities to their humble abode to check on Stevie's living conditions.
Who would of thought sh*t would have hit the fan the way it did in the last couple minutes? Did you expect to see Nancy's co-worker at the door when she opened it? Now that Cesar has Shane, what do you think is going to happen?
Until next week, we leave you with a few of our favorite Weeds quotes below:
