'Go' Season 3, Episode 15

Otherwise known as "Up in Smoke"? At the start of this season, Weeds creator Jenji Kohan told us the theme for the show would be Nancy learning how to be a gangster. Toward that end, we have seen her roll with rough crowds, shake her booty for a brick, all but wish U-turn dead, bring her sons into the biz, and now practically rubber-stamp the burning of Majestic. Where previous seasons made our jaws drop - Peter's a DEA agent, a half-dozen guns at Nance's temple - I appreciated how this one was a bit more "real." The pace of the episode was more leisurely, almost dreamlike (with Doug as our ersatz Greek chorus), and yet so much - or at least enough - happened. Mainly, Nancy realized that she wanted to be free of this excuse for a life, and for good. She saw the one rare chance she has had in all these years to actually own her destiny. That light went off the moment Guillermo said that if her house didn't burn down, it'd be the status quo. That's when she practically raced for the gas cans. And I was happy for her as she tooled away from her doomed home on the Segway, chewing on that coffee straw. Funny, it almost came off as a series finale, the way there was closure. I suppose there is the none-too-small matter of Celia dropping dime on Nance to Captain Till. Maybe that will keep her from getting out of town? I also sensed we got closure to the all-too-quick romance between Nancy and Conrad. It was good while it lasted, yes, and it was long in the simmering, but at the end of the day he doesn't know the Grateful Dead and she wants to microwave a deep-fried turkey. If her home burns, her suburb burns, she won't be turning to him. Rather, she said, "I'd have to go." That was kind of a sad moment. But amid the finality of it all, there was levity, too. And thus my segue/Segway to the bullets: " "They say arson is a sexual crime. Couldn't you have just rubbed one out?" " Shane crying out "Dad!" as Silas came after him. Poor kid. " The ditzy neighbor sinking her Bowflex into the pool in a trash bag so it wouldn't burn " Celia giving the firefighter her number and an invitation to drinks and "angry sex" " Heylia channeling Lethal Weapon's Murtaugh, groaning, "I'm getting too old for this s--t. Growing here, running there" " Isabel to the transport service: "This is my dad, not a washing machine!" " Nancy to "Judah": "No, my hair's the same. I stopped straightening it." " Andy's sales pitch: "Where there's smoke, there's smoke." " Doug's assorted ditties: "Where there's fire, people like to smo-o-oke." "Jesus freaks are singing." "It's just like the Superdo-o-me." " Was Isabelle suggesting she's not really a lesbian but just out for attention? " The fireman at the grow house: "I think they shot 'Peckers of the Caribbean' here." " Captain Till referring to Celia as "She of the magical house-earning p---y." And then his proposal to get a Porsche out of Sullivan. " Nancy snarking to Guillermo, "I couldn't get them to sell me a drug-dealer lost-product policy." " Guillermo's speech about valleys and hills and all leading to Mexico - then Nance correcting him, "You're facing west." " Shane on Tara making like impervious cheerleader Claire Bennett: "OK, I'm over her." Again, as Nancy said, "I guess I'd have to go." And now must we. Thanks, Weeds, for another fun season! show less
