Weeds > Weeds Season Finale Review: When Will It End? > Comments Page 3
The show is not about DRUGS, its about hardships in life and making good/bad decisions and having to live with them. I havent heard them mention meth or crack or even cocaine...just medicine that grows naturally :)
Nancy went to prison because it was either that or getting whacked. Whatever Nancy does its for Nancy. Any perceived love for anyone is just pretense. She wants Stevie back just so she can add another familial psycho drug dealer to her crew.
True about Andy's growth in character. He entered as someone who came off as a bit sinister...someone who I thought would be blackmailing Nancy for money and sex. Instead he became more comedic and spiritually philosophical. He knows Nancy's a destructive force yet he never sits in judgement. He rides the train wherever it goes.
Nancy adores--hell, LIVES, for her children. She went to jail for them for crying out loud.. If you need recent proof look how quickly she forgave Silas for fucking up her business; her custody of Stevie (RIGHT after hearing she was going to win him back!). She didn't hesitate for a second. This season may have not been as exciting as the others, but it was important as hell. Both Silas and Shane matured immensely. Look at Andy! My God he's so cool now. He changed the most..Weeds is a fantastic show due to how insanely it progresses with just a dozen or so episodes (due to the fact that it has NO bullshit episodes (like...EVERY other show has) )..The ending? It's coming...The shooter? To me it was obvious who it was and why he wants Nancy dead.. I have complete faith in J.K. Who knows? Weeds may end with the legalization of MJ and the Botwins selling pot legally. (my favorite prediction). It may end with Nancy's death. In the end, assuming the downfall of a fantastic show because of a
we want nancy to end up with stevie because she is the main character and that's why we watch. Plus, it's her son. Obviously nancy is a bad mom but the show is based off drug dealing and motherhood. Nancy is awesome. who the fuk cares about her bitchy sister. That raging bitch should not get custody of nancy's kid. I'd rather have a weed dealing mom than an asshole mom. btw, this season great. it got back to a focus on nancy and dealing, like it should. Nancy is what makes this show.
Agree. I stopped liking the Nancy Botwin character several seasons back. She slowly turned into a completely narcissistic sociopathic person who has destroyed the lives of everyone around her, especially her children whom she only pretends to love in that she can use them. The only steady character that seems immune is Doug, who kind of floats along on his insular world of 'high'. I really came to loathe Nancy Botwin.
One thing that didn't make sense was Shane being a police recruit. The Detective was able to see the sociopathic nature of Shaun (a nod to nancy's upbringing skills), so why make him go into the force? (probably an implied off-screen ultimatum...jail for the whole family or become a cop)
Certainly you don't want a sociopath being a cop!
Finally, Bang, (pun intended) out of the blue she's got a hit on her. Granted, all done in a way that paves the way for another season but if this had been the 'official' final season, then what a crappy way to end the series. It wo
