Have you been going through some extreme withdrawal since the last season of "Weeds" wrapped? Well, here's a little hit to ease the pain: Season 7 premieres June 27 on Showtime.EW posted the first look at a promo shot of Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) for Season 7. When we last saw her, Nancy was turning herself into the feds, having taken the fall for Shane (Alexander Gould) knocking off Pilar. With the rest of the family safely on their way to Copenhagen with Andy (Justin Kirk), she may have done the one thing she could do to make up for getting the family there in the first place. From the look of the photo below, jail agrees with her, though she may be on the verge of breaking out: Is it hot in here?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/weeds-season-7-first-look-you-cant-keep-a-bad-girl-down.html
After every season finale of Weeds , fans are left saying the same thing: How will Nanyc get out of this one?

Here are our top TV moments of the week: 12. "Oh No She Di'nt" Award: Laguerta knew she was in some deep doo-doo after her last sting operation on Dexter resulted in the death of civilians. But rather than nut up and take responsibility for her actions, she suggests to Deb that they pin the blame on Manzone because her career would be least affected. Deb isn't having it, so Laguerta decides to throw Deb under the bus and get Manzone to back her story to the chief. 11. Most Engaging Day: After sleeping through their start time, Amazing Racers Chad Waltrip and Stephanie Smith seemed in store for a pretty bad leg until the short-fused Chad decides to pop the question mid-leg to his gal pal of six months with his late mother's ring. She says yes and they finish the leg in first place for the first time, winning a trip to Belize. And they lived happily ever after... until the next leg. 10. Best Means of Research: When a young girl is believed to be infected with smallpox after coming in contact with an artifact from a Dutch slave ship on House, the curmudgeonly doc thinks fast to find a translator to decipher the original captain's log from the ship for clues. Rather than find a translator in the hospital at the late hour, he goes for the next best thing: Skyping with a Dutch Internet call girl to read the log to the team. Problem-solving at its best.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em, because Weeds may not be around much longer. In Monday's sixth season finale, Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) sacrificed herself by claiming responsibility for the murder of Pilar. She was last seen surrounded by FBI agents at the airport, while her family was on a plane headed for Europe. Once again, it looks like Nancy's out of options. Or is she? Will we next see her plotting a season-long jail break? Series creator Jenji Kohan says getting stuck in major jams is certainly nothing new for Nancy. "We always tend to write ourselves into a corner to a certain extent," she says. "Everyone goes home, rests and comes back fresh and says, 'All right, how are we going to get out of this sh--? What have we done?' There were vague discussions of what's going to happen next year, but there's nothing definitive in the works yet." Kohan talks to us about Monday's cliff-hanger, why the upcoming seventh season may be the last, and whether Nancy will be wearing an orange jumpsuit when the show returns. To Read More Click here.
The Botwins have been on the run from Esteban all season, but we haven't seen much of the Mexican drug lord Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) took as her third husband. That changes Monday. Just as the Botwins are preparing to high-tail it for Copenhagen, Esteban (Demian Bichir) and Guillermo (Guillermo Diaz) showed up. "It's the end of a journey," Weeds creator-executive producer Jenji Kohan tells TVGuide.com. To Read More Click Here.

After deciding to leave the country in last week’s “To Moscow, and Quickly,” Nancy and Andy spend the “Dearborn-Again” episode of WEEDS in Nancy’s hometown trying to make arrangements for that to happen while Silas and Shane dig into Nancy’s past. I had the chance to watch the episode early, and I’m happy to say it’s a solid episode that gives some interesting insight into Nancy while moving the story forward. Nancy is sticking to her decision to take the family to Copenhagen, and since she thinks she knows the ins and outs of her hometown of Dearborn, she opts to make the final preparations for the great escape there. Multi-tasker that she is, she also finds time to try to make some peace with some of her past in one of my favorite sad-funny scenes in a while. Let’s face it–Nancy is not always the most likeable character given her self-involvement and often less than stellar behavior/parenting skills, but I always end up rooting for her, and it’s because of scenes like this one.
