File this one under Great Dramatic Moments, Bad Timing. Showtime is including with press screeners of this season's final two episodes of Weeds a note making sure that an on-screen twist is not mistaken for a Law & Order-esque art-imitating-life moment.

"These episodes [airing Nov. 12 and 19] were written and filmed this past summer, long before Southern California experienced a real-life tragedy," says Richard Licata, Executive Vice President, Corporate Communications. "On behalf of the cast and crew of Weeds and everyone at Showtime, I'd like to acknowledge the thousands of families who've been affected by the devastating fires. Truly, our thoughts and prayers are with them."
