"The Two Mrs. Scottsons" Season 3, Episode 8

Hmmph. Given the title and in light of what Weeds creator Jenji Kohan teased preseason, I had "high" expectations for this face-off between Peter's pair of widows... but I guess I will have to wait for next week. But to (ex-wife) Mrs. Scottson's point, why the eff was Nancy stalking her?! Very odd. Now Mrs. S is in quite a position to put the "big squeeze" on Nance. Ouch! (PS: Good to see Peter's son is still a class-A brat. Man, I hated that punk.) This week confirmed what I lamented a few blogs ago: This season's Weeds is terribly uneven and utterly lacking in an overarching narrative. Plus, was anyone but me missing Mary Kate Olsen and Silas this week? I love Silas' romances, and MKO's character is a hoot of contradictions. Shane and Isabella were "cute," dabbling in Mama Botwin's bud, but to little effect. Just a gag or two about Shane's new BFF not being into penises, instead preferring beer. Ha. I like the "idea" of Sullivan, but what game is he playing and on whom? Celia is a hellion, to be sure, but if he's using her - and at such an emotionally fragile juncture for the cancer survivor - I will scream. (Show of hands: Who else besides my wife and I totally forgot about the cancer subplot?) Props, however, to Elizabeth Perkins for the brave "nude" scenes. But Weeds' greatest trespass has been the glaringly conspicuous absence of Conrad. Is Romany Malco busy making back-to-back-to-back 40-Year Old Virgin sequels? Or did no one care to include him this season? Jenji teased more to come for Conrad and Nancy, and yet... nada. I have to think he will (he must!) resurface, if only because Nancy is a client again. The bullets: " Sullivan asking Nance, "When are we going to have sex again," and her responding, "When I'm feeling desperate again." (I thought she was feeling liberated...?) " Heylia to Nancy: "You bring out the 'f--k you' in me." Can I get that as a Hallmark card? " Fetish-porn star Andy being coached to "Use that big toe!" in "Foot F--kers" and its many sequels. (And Andy then crowing, "I'm cramping!")Andy's "I thought porn was magical..." speech was a winner, too. show less
