Weeds Review: "Dearborn-Again"
Tonight's episode brought the gang back to Nancy's hometown. I wasn't sure why they would go back to her roots, but the old saying is There's No Place Like Home, right?
"Dearborn - Again" also introduced us to a couple of Nancy's past lovers.
One being the magnificent Richard Dreyfuss.
I love this man! And, boy, did he know how to perfectly play the creepy old math teacher from Nancy's past! He was so incredibly weird and to top it off, they had him become a mailman. Don't get me wrong, I've had my run-ins with some wonderful mail people in my day, but there's just something that's so odd about that job. The saying "going postal" didn't come out of nowhere...
In any case, Mr. Schiff was quite the hoot! From his obsession with buying things through Sky Mall to the eerie locked door and his obvious fixation on Nancy could only mean more crazy antics in stored for us from this guy!
Another one of Nancy's notches and most likely the first in her belt was Lars.
All season Shane has been joking about Silas being the "blond sheep" of the family. Could Lars really be Silas's biological father?
On first account, it looks like there's a strong possibility that Lars is Silas' true dad. This guy walked, talked, and acted like Silas. But something has me second guessing. I know Nancy isn't the best mom in the world, but I don't think she'd keep this from Silas. What do you think?
Another new character we were introduced to tonight was Ellis Tate.
Nancy met Ellis in the cemetery while she was visiting her parents. He really came off as someone weird, not your average Joe, and by the end of the episode we learn that he isn't.
Mr. Tate has been trying to track down the entire family for a while now and by the looks of it, he's finally got them right where he wants them!.Who do you think he works for? I have a sneaky suspicion that he works for Esteban. If he did work with the FBI, wouldn't there be more people? Not just a one man operation?
Nancy is one step closer to getting out of America and heading to Copenhagen. With Andy's help, she made a fun-filled concoction that the local hookah club owner loves and agrees to purchase. It was pretty hilarious watching Doug be the guinea pig and drink it.
I am not sure where this story is heading, but I really doubt it's to Copenhagen, as cool as that would be.
Until next week, here are a few of my favorite Weeds quotes from tonight:
Doug: I'm on fuego. You want to dance?
Nancy: No I'm okay.
Doug: Andy? | permalink
Shane: We'll let the lab decide.
Shane: DNA my brother or should I say half brother. | permalink
Doug: 84720. I was an accountant. Numbers were my thing. | permalink
Nancy: (to her dead parents graves) You think marrying a Jew was bad, you should have met this little guy's father. | permalink
Shane: (to Mr. Schiff) You keep a picture of our mom in your wallet? | permalink
Shane: It definitely happened.
Andy: Hey never confirmed.
Doug: They had sex. | permalink
Nancy: It's also racist to assume all Asians are bad drivers, but they are. | permalink
