Weeds Recap: The Prodigal Daughter
"I'm not asking you to perjure yourself. Unless you want to." --Nancy
I suppose I'll go through the motions of a proper recap, even though this whole episode can be summed up in a single phrase: The Return of Tonye Patano! If I can't have Celia, Heylia is definitely the next best thing. I can't wait to see what these two old gal pals will be up to once Heylia gets over her sassy antagonism! Nancy and Silas sought her out to buy weed from under direct orders of the judge handling the custody hearing; well, not a custody hearing so much as an almost entirely wasted cross-country trip, and not direct orders so much as a very loose interpretation thereof. There was supposed to be a custody hearing -- Nancy even brought Silas along as a character witness -- but Evil Jill got it postponed in hopes that Nancy would have difficulties flying out a second time. Nancy, alas, did not manage to see Stevie, in spite of Scott's surprising kindness and a very solid attempt to climb over his and Jill's fence, but she did manage to get a meeting with the judge, courtesy of Silas's soft spot for his mom -- perhaps Nancy was not completely crazy to select him as a character witness over Shane. Meanwhile, Andy broke up with the polyamorous couple with whom he shared a bed for five minutes, Shane finally enrolled in some college courses, and Doug discovered some fraud within his company. The end. Next week it looks like Dean is back as well, possibly living in the boonies with Heylia. Close, but still no Celia. Grrrr.
