Recap: Season 4 Episode 13, "If You Work for a Living, Why Do You Kill Yourself Working?" Nancy screwed up big time and leaves us all a little worried for her safety. She ratted out the Mexican crime boss she loves and got the gay partner of a DEA agent killed. Plus, she forgot to get Silas a birthday gift. But hey, at least she showed her boobs some more.
Just as she thinks things are starting to work themselves back out, the DEA agent she has been squealing to finds out that Esteban’s men sanded all the skin off of his lover’s face in order to get information. Before getting his corps hung up on the border fence, the agent gives up Nancy’s name. Fortunately, Esteban doesn’t believe it, until he’s actually handed a photograph of Nancy snitching. He makes plans to meet up with her that night, but she decides to take a long bath, show off her rack and tell Andy every intimate detail over her life in convenient montage format.
Now that Maria is gone, Andy has gone from 0 to 60 as far as actually being in love with Nancy. The whole situation is very creepy, but will definitely be a big part of next season.
No matter how pathetic Doug gets, he’s still pretty funny. The writers set it up to look like he’s going to hang himself after composing a letter to his estranged wife, but instead he just jerks off while choking himself and tells her to fuck off via snail mail. What a class act.
After the cheese MILF’s ex-husband comes charging in to find her getting it on with a barely 18 pot dealer, Silas is forced to move his operations. He decides he’s going to get a small piece of land in Mexico and grow weed and live happily ever after. It actually sounds like a pretty great idea. Ganja and roadside tacos should be more than enough sustenance for the rest of his life. He’ll probably have to bring his own hair gel, though.
Since Silas has to store his goods in the family freezer, Shane starts stealing and selling it with his goth chicks. He’s still weird and I still don’t like him, but at least maybe now his storyline can get interesting.
Yes, Celia is still around. She goes to visit her other daughter, whom we just found out about. She lives in Mexico with some guy. They share a meal, which turns out to be drugged and we find out that Celia’s daughter is just as cunning as her mother and plans to sell her mom back to her dad for $200k. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t work with my parents. My dad is sort of like Rodney Dangerfield, only he’s not funny and he’s not dead.
So, just when you’re supposed to think that Esteban is going to have to kill Nancy for snitching, she pulls out a printout of an ultrasound. She says it’s "too early to know, but it feels like a boy." He can’t kill a woman who is pregnant with his own child, right? Well, apparently not because the next season starts in "nine months or so." Not bad.
Because it’s only a half-hour long, they really couldn’t cram in as much as I would have liked, but it was still a really eventful episode. The characters have lots of places to go and I’m actually interested in seeing them go there. Except for Celia. I hope she’s accidentally killed during her bootleg kidnapping.
