'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan: 'Someone's out to kill Nancy,' lot of Season 8 possibilities

"Weeds" ended on a rather crazy cliffhanger Monday night (Sept. 27) - the entire family (including Nancy's sister Jill and her two daughters) living together in a "compound" in Connecticut and then being targeted by a sniper, as a shot rang out and the credits rolled.Creator Jenji Kohan says of the finale cliffhanger, "In the end, someone's out to kill Nancy. The question is 'Who is that in the bushes?' We certainly know who it is. The audience may or may not figure it out. It's something from seasons past, you've got to do a little digging. Nancy has left a mess in her wake and the past always comes back to haunt you."As for the new set-up in Connecticut, Kohan says it's the family getting back to its roots, so to speak."Ironically enough, Nancy really considers what the best time for her children was and I think she realizes it was the suburbs, to...

Did the Botwins Reunite and Find Family Peace on 'Weeds' Finale? (VIDEO)

It's been a crazy ride for the Botwin family, torn apart by greed and weakness throughout this season of 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime). But in this season finale, Silas admitted his failings and apologized to Nancy. Nancy got herself out of trouble with Heylia, who told her Silas wasn't happy in the city. So Andy came up with a solution to solve this problem, as well as Nancy's custody battle with her sister over Stevie. That solution jumped us ahead four months to Connecticut. There we find that the Botwins are living together in a type of compound, allowing them to be a family without having to be that close to one another. But there are still secrets, as Shane is now attending the police academy while telling the family he's going to college.

'Weeds' finale: Will Season 8 be answering 'Who shot Nancy Botwin?'

"Weeds" took the Big Apple by storm for Season 7, jumping ahead three years and seeing Nancy get out of prison and go back to her drug dealing ways, this time on Wall Street. Her goal was to get Stevie back from her crazy sister Jill. So where did the season finale leave the Botwin clan?Well, some stuff happened in New York. It was all kind of rushed around - funeral for Andy's dead polyamorous friend, Shane saying he can make it up to the police officer he hoodwinked, Nancy and Jill getting all her pot from Dimitry and him conveniently going away to prison. Fast-forward two months - the entire Botwin clan, plus Jill and her two kids, Stevie and Doug Wilson have bought a compound in Connecticut. And someone is hiding in the bushes with a sniper rifle and then a shot rings out."Weeds" hasn't been renewed yet for an eighth season, so...

Heylia and Dean Robbed by a Couple of Sarah Palins on 'Weeds' (VIDEO)

With next week's season finale looming on 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime), things got a little sticky this week between Silas and Nancy. Now partnered back up with Emma, Silas decides he needs to score some more of Heylia's sweet mary jane, which is really just an excuse to get her into New York and some more screen time. We don't mind, though, as long as she continues taking no crap from anyone. When she and Dean were held up at gunpoint for their carload of drugs, we were applauding when she refused to unlock her door, and shot her assailant right in his Sarah Palin mask.

Nancy Eliminates a Competitor, Only to Create a New One on 'Weeds' (VIDEO)

Nancy was feeling pretty good about screwing over her son's girlfriend Emma on 'Weeds' (Mon., 10PM ET on Showtime). Emma had proven herself a pretty calculating and terrible person, which is probably why Silas was so drawn to her, so it was actually nice seeing her taken out. But Nancy isn't turning out to be a much better person, so we felt equally happy when Silas turned the tables on her after Shane revealed that Nancy was behind Emma's arrest. He's got the database everyone has been fighting over these past few weeks, and he tells her to her face that he's her competition now. "Fair warning. Everything is up for grabs," he said as he walked out. "Best of luck to you, Nancy."

Top Moments: Pretty Little's "Pretty Eyes" and Now... Here's Snooki with the News

Our top moments of the week: 12. Worst Kiss:   Bachelor Pad  wouldn't be complete (and by "complete" we mean "characteristically disgusting and bad for humanity") without a kissing contest. Holly and Blake release some sexual tension when they make out (for a while actually) during the blindfolded competition. But as if making out in front of your housemates isn't bad enough, Holly's ex-fiancé Michael has to watch the whole thing. Awk-ward! 11. Worst Scare:  Talk about heated competition! Gymnastics troupe Gymkana ups the ante for its  America's Got Talent  performance by adding a ring of fire, through which members will jump. It's all going smoothly until a Gymkaneer hits the ring mid-flip and brings the whole flaming hoop crashing down with him. He's OK, but what's totally not OK is that no emergency personnel rushed to anyone's aid with so much as an extinguisher. Safety first, people! 10. Best/Worst Maternal Instinct:  On  Weeds , Nancy reminds us how she has remained a successful drug dealer for nearly a decade (give or take a, cough, three-year prison sentence). Shane's behind bars and Silas is losing customers to the merry pranksters at Pouncy House, so Nancy needs to kill two birds with one cop: Detective Mitch Ouellette (guest star  Michael Harney ). She practically audibly bats her eyelashes at him and unfurls a spectacularly inaccurate (but appropriately sad-sack) version of events that convinces Mitch to raid Pouncy House, for the sake of a lonely single mother. "I wouldn't want anyone to get arrested," Nancy says. "Not my kids." (Probably not a good time to mention that Silas just negotiated a merger with Pouncy House, huh?) Read More...

Michelle Trachtenberg Gets Lost in Weeds

As Emma, the temptress who turned the Botwins' bicycle shop upside-down — literally — and stole their pot business, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer  alum is a real buzz kill. With her Lolita-like looks and too-cool-for-school attitude, her character feels like a warmed-over version of  Gossip Girl 's Georgina Sparks. And somehow she's even more annoying than the perpetually perky (and aptly surnamed) nurse Chloe Payne on NBC's mercifully short-lived  Mercy . Read More...
