The A Shoe for a Shoe episode of WEEDS, which I had the chance to see early, picks up exactly where we left off: the Botwins are in meltdown mode with Shane in the clutches of Cesar and Ignacio and police and child services at the door. Cesar wants Nancy to bring Stevie to make a trade, so after wiggling out of the child protective services situation, Nancy makes like a mother lion and goes to a skee ball museum to try to get her son back.
I think this is a mostly disappointing episode. With everything in Nancy's life imploding at the end of Boomerang, I expected an epic and suspenseful wild ride, but there's surprisingly little tension here. So much interaction happens by phone that it blunts the sense of danger and clunky scenes at a diner with a too-quirky waitress don't help. Conversely, because of the alleged high stakes, there just isn't that much fun in the episode either. Oh, and Andy, Doug, and Silas are all pathetic. It had to be said.
