WEEDS ''Boomerang'' Review Season 6, Episode 5

Things for the Botwins go from bad to worse with a detour through weird in the Boomerang episode of WEEDS. We pick up where Bliss left off, with Nancy and Andy being confronted by cops while holding bags of trimmings. Their minivan is booted, so they decide it's time to leave Seattle. Nancy heads to the hotel to pick up some under-the-pillow hash payments but has to fight fellow maid Latrice for them. Just when Nancy thinks she has everything arranged for a quick getaway, she gets back to the motel to find Cesar and Ignacio (along with Doug the hostage), Latrice and her boyfriend, and Shane's mommy group accompanied by the police. We end with Shane captured and Nancy mid-nervous breakdown.

Andy wants Nancy to release him from the hope that they will ever be together, and their discussion of whether or not Nancy is saving Andy by not sleeping with him or whether or not Andy has the power is simultaneously funny and sad. Andy really should have run far, far away when he had the chance, but he doesn't want to because he doesn't have that kind of power, leaving him sexless in Seattle. Nancy admitting she's afraid Andy would leave if she released him is about as honest as she's ever been with him, and it's a nice moment even if she didn't get him a fish sandwich of contrition or penance fries. He did get to slap her drink away, and that's something.
