Recap: Weeds: Episode 4.08

Tuesday, August 5 by

Episode: "I Am the Table."

Finally!
I know, it’s juvenile to be excited about this kind of thing, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that let Nancy getting topless completely overshadow everything else that happened over the course of the episode. I couldn’t believe it. After all the guys she has slept with on the show, it’s impressive that it took this long for her to show the goods. It further cemented the fact that Mary Louise Parker is easily the hottest over-40 chick on TV. I just hope they didn’t do it because of sagging ratings.

Non-boob related stuff:
Aside form Nancy’s boobs getting liberated, there wasn’t actually that much going on in this episode. Celia got addicted to coke, but I hate her character so much I’m kind of hoping she’ll overdose and just die already. Cancer didn’t get rid of her, though, so I’m not going to hold my breath. Silas is going to open a grow house in the back of the cheese shop, which officially makes the cheese lady a creep. If she’ll get down with a 17 year-old kid and let him open a pot farm in her back room, who knows what other kind of sordid stuff this chick would do.

Andy and Doug:
I like the idea that they’ve started their people-smuggling business, but there wasn’t enough time for them in this episode to do anything really interesting. Although, they do suggest that the coyote Andy shot in the foot is going to be coming for revenge. Maybe he can hire Abumchuck, the Eskimo bounty hunter to come and protect him.

Shane…
I never really liked Shane’s character in the first place, but now I just can’t get over the fact that he jerked off to a picture of his own mom. That is messed up on an epic level. I don’t even care where his storyline goes from now on. He’s dead to me. So is Celia’s daughter, but just because she’s really annoying.

Guillermo:
They’re really setting it up for Guillermo to start some shit. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if it was him and his crew who tried to rub out the boss man. He looked so pissed. I think his story line is going to end up being a high point for the rest of the season.

Cheez Whiz:
When Silas told his cheese MILF she was smoking Cheez Whiz, I knew immediately that weed dudes were going to be using that term to refer to cheap weed. Chances are they will, until they forget 15 minutes later.

Next week:
They have really been upping the ante over the past couple of weeks, so I’ll be interested to see if they tone it down a little so they can ramp up to the end of the season or if they just keep dropping bombs. I have a feeling someone is going to die before the season is over. I guess I can only hope it’s Celia. It probably won’t be, but one can always hope.
