'Weeds' Season 7 premiere: A hello to arms
It's three years later and Nancy is out of prison and serving the remainder of her manslaughter sentence in a New York City halfway house, since Esteban was conveniently killed in prison and his minions disbanded.
The Botwin boys plus Doug are living the high life in Copenhagen, Denmark. Shane is working as a puppeteer with an older woman named Renatta, which ... of course that's what Shane is up to. In the time jump, he would be 18 now, but he's still sort of Nancy's little boy, as he doesn't even hesitate to book a ticket to the U.S. upon learning of her release.
Andy is still wildly in love with Nancy and jumps at the chance to go with Shane, though he says it's because Shane needs him. We're hoping those two crazy kids can work things out.
Silas still kinda hates his mom and has found gainful employment as a spokesmodel for a flower water beverage. Not much is made of his last-season discovery about his real father, so we hope that gets revisited as the season progresses.
Oh and Nancy's lovely sister Jill has, well, kind of kidnapped Stevie. She's been raising him while Nancy was in the pokey and has been telling him that Nancy is his aunt. Ouch.
But the big news is that whilst in prison, Nancy cozied up to her cellmate. Now that Nancy's out, said lady friend has sent her on a bit of a scavenger hunt. What was the buried treasure? A suitcase full of guns and grenades. Is Nancy an arms dealer now?
What did you think of the premiere? Excited to see what kind of shenanigans the Botwins are up to this year?
