October 16, 2006: Up in Smoke Season 2, Episode 10

Just the other day, I received an invite to a star-studded Manhattan screening of Weeds' second-season finale, airing for the rest of y'all two weeks from now. "A theatrical screening, really?" I said to myself. But now, having seen this week's episode, it's becoming apparent that the stakes are as high as Doug on any given day. Yes, it's not much of a laughing matter these days in Agrestic, what with Heylia lobbing threats and ultimatums at Nancy, the awfully discordant "dinner with the family," and Peter putting his ears where they don't belong. As glad as I was to see Silas get pushed around a bit - seriously, dude's sad-sack slacker teen bit has gotten way old - I'm not thrilled that they're fashioning Nance's DEA-agent hubby into the show's antagonist, since that's kind of the easy, "pot-peddlers good, narcs bad" way out. Still, that final moment, where we saw that Peter was listening in on his wife's somewhat out-of-context, yet still incriminating, convo with Conrad was a serious "whoa" moment. It really makes you wonder just how nasty this divorce is going to get. I'm also wondering how Doug-Celia and/or Andy's bohemian honey (played by the always entertaining Zooey Deschanel, sis of Bones' Emily) might figure into the finale. As Weeds' most unlikely bedfellows spent three hours watching "Agrestic Gone Wild" (aka the town's security-camera footage), I was waiting for them to spy something that might incriminate Nancy, perhaps even finally clue in Celia to her best bud's bud biz. Maybe that's in the week or two to come? They spent too much time establishing Celia's obsession with the videos to just drop it. Or, might Zooey's flighty Kat extend her visit, and somehow worm her way into things? Will the gal who once "almost killed Uncle Andy" stir up trouble in town? If Weeds needs a patsy, is Kat their go-to? I just asked three rather rhetorical questions in a row, yes. It's just that A) I don't foresee Kat's long-term purpose, seeing as Andy has moved on (and matured) since their time together, and B) it would seem that the only way Nancy, Heylia, et al, can emerge from this dilemma all unscathed is if Peter and their assorted secrets meet an untimely death. But I don't see a killer among us. Do you? show less
