Weeds continues in season 4 with Nancy, Andy, Silas and Shane relocating to Andy's father's house in a small city near San Diego. SD is of course on the US Mexican border across from the fabled city of Tijuana. That will be important later. Right now the family is adjusting to Andy's asshole of a father, played by Albert Brooks, and his nearly dead mother. She'll ask Albert to kill her in a couple of episodes and they have to leave it to Nancy. That goes as well as can be expected. At least no one goes to jail. Our main gal needs some money and she hooks up with Guillermo who sends her on a test run to Mexico. He trains her to be a drug mule and we learn a lot about the trade. Doug shows up and he and Andy start running Mexician's across the border for cash. That goes poorly after a while. Doug becomes more and more of an asshole. He's the best at sabotaging his own life, no one has to help him any. Zoe Deschannel shows up. She's an old girlfriend of Andy's and she's on the run. She's completely self centered and a danger to be around. She did stab Andy for something to do with ther garden gnomes. Now she's stolen some casino's chips and they want them back. She disrupts everyone's life in one of the more comedic story lines of the season. Silas sets up a grow house in a fancy cheese shop and he starts humping the lady owner. She just wants his weed and his underage wiener and poor Silas doesn't do to well in the long run. Shane, the ever evolving psychopath, beats up a popular kid and has a three way with two slutty teens.
Guillermo's boss opens a Maternity store and G hires Nancy to run the thing. Celia comes to work for Nancy at the shop and she develops a drug problem. There's an intervention and rehab about half way through the season. Her family talks Celia into trying to reconnect with her older daughter Quinn. That doesn't go well and Quinn holds Celia hostage for $200,000 ransom. Like anyone going to pay that, huh. There's one of those drug tunnels in the maternity store and that ramps up the level of Nancy's involvement in the trade. They smuggle drugs, money, weapons and girls through the tunnel. Nancy finds out where it goes, after being told to stay out, and that leads her to the big boss Esteban. She starts a relationship with Esteban and that pulls her all the way into the crime family. Esteban is also the mayor of Tijuana. He's definitely a guy you wouldn't want to know. Nancy is ok with the weed going through the tunnel but she's not pleased with the rest very much. She turns the tunnel into the DEA and Guillermo winds up in the can. Her betrayal gets back to Esteban and he nearly kills her. Turns out she's carrying his baby. That will not go well. There were some entertaining shows and scenes but overall the show grows darker and things go poorly for most everyone. The series ends with another cliff hanger. Will Nancy die? What? No, of course not. There seem to be less jokes and they are crueler. I picked up seasons 5 and 6 at Target on Black friday so I'll be diggin' into those soon.
