"Release the Hounds" Season 3, Episode 9

For a second just now, as I typed the above title, I was like, "What is that line in reference to...?" And then it hit me - that first scene, and Nancy's mammogram. Ha! OK, this was an "up" week in Weeds' Season 3 roller coaster. Dean's horrific/pathetic motorcycle crash seems like it will move some story along in that he looks destined for recuperation at Celia's new manse - and just as his ex is cozying up to Sullivan. Speaking of Modine's character, I have a very bad feeling he is purely playing Celia. Totally using her. And maybe, just maybe, Dean and Belly will be there to catch her when she falls. ("God protects the stupid," right, C?) Conrad's back! It was just one scene, but I hope we get to finish out the season (four more episodes to go...) by seeing him work Silas like his b--ch. Loved Conrad negotiating his "babysitting" fee based on the suburbs' going rate. (Note: My wife and I only pay $10/hour but are pretty good about "rounding up"). I never thought these words would come out of my Blackberry, but I am really falling for Mary-Kate Olsen. Maybe it's just the character, maybe Tara is simply close to the actress' real self, but I relish every scene she is in and every word from her mouth. Sanjay: "I'm gay." Tara: [ Without missing a beat] "You can get help for that." "The Lord wants me to sell pot. He also wants me to get a new BMW." The "Two Mrs. Scottsons" story resumed this week, with an eventual sort of détente between the ladies. Nancy never quite explained her "stalking," though I reckon she is looking for someone to grieve with. The look Valerie gave as Nance divulged such things as "I started sketching again..." were priceless and totally fitting. Bullets, then I be gone: " Nancy to Valerie: "Nice meeting you... even though you're kind of a bitch." " Nancy pondering Val's proctologist joke: "You have short fingernails but a lot of anger...." " Animal pee "saving" Dean's life - ewwww. " Celia to blubbering Belly: "Will you drop the Steel Magnolias bit?!" show less
