Weeds: Who Shot Nancy Botwin?

Nancy Botwin's past finally caught up to her. The matriarch of one of the most dysfunctional families on TV kicked off the eighth and final season of Weeds on the ground, covered in blood, having been shot in the head. There's no way the Showtime series would kill off star Mary-Louise Parker — not yet, at least — but it raises the question: Who would want to kill Nancy? Well, I mean, who wouldn't really, right?

'Weeds' Premiere: Who Shot Nancy?

"Weeds" picked up its eighth and final season right where last season’s cliffhanger finale left off , in the moments after a shot rang out from the bushes during a family dinner at the Botwin's new compound in Connecticut. Warning: Spoilers for "Weeds" Season 8, Episode 1, entitled "Messy," below. Nancy survived getting shot in the head, but could still be facing brain damage after falling into a coma at the hospital. The identity of the shooter turned out to be a blast from the "Weeds" past: Tim Scottson , the son of DEA agent Peter Scottson, who Nancy briefly married all the way back in Season 2. If you’re asking, "Wait, who?!" then you’re not alone. Little Tim Scottson was a bit player in the Botwin’s story, and it seemed more likely that the shooter would’ve been any number of gangsters and drug dealers who Nancy's wronged along the way. But "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan clearly has a less-obvious end-game up her sleeve. So why did Tim Scottson do it? He probably blames Nancy for his father’s death at the hands of the Armenian mobsters , who murdered him while he was trying to extort Nancy's weed profits after their relationship went bad. Either that, or he's still holding a grudge against Shane for biting him on the foot at a karate match. What did you think of the "Weeds" premiere? Let us know in the comments. "Weeds" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime. //feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/VFUV8fCzHwg/weeds-premiere-tim-scottson-shot-nancy_n_1641966.html

'Weeds' Season 8 premiere: Nancy Botwin shot by ...

"Weeds" came back with a bang Sunday, July 1, when the show picked up right where Season 7 left off - with Nancy toasting her unorthodox family at their new suburban compound in Connecticut, just as a shot rings out. So who was shot?Nancy was. Hopefully no one was terribly surprised by that turn of events. Who else would it have been? What we found quite surprising was the culprit, revealed at the end of the episode. While we hadn't forgotten about Peter Scottson (Martin Donovan), the DEA agent Nancy married way back in Season 2, we hadn't given much thought to his anger-management-problem son Tim (Daryl Sabara), whom Shane bit at a karate match (remember that?). Was anybody pleasantly surprised to be surprised at the shooter's identity? And perhaps glad it wasn't someone connected to Esteban or Guillermo? We were kind of hoping it was Heylia, just because that would've been funny. In other... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/weeds-season-8-premiere-nancy-botwin-shot-by.html

'Weeds' Season 8 premiere: 7 things to look forward to

"Weeds" returns for its eighth and final season this coming weekend. Zap2it has seen the first two episodes and so we thought we'd whet your appetite for the Botwin goings-on when we pick up with everyone's favorite pot-dealing family.Here are seven things to look forward to from the first two episodes:Not only will the premiere answer the "Who got shot?" question, but by episode's end, the viewers at least will know who did the shooting. And it came as a bit of a surprise to us. Just because we tease other plots for characters does not mean they were not the one who got shot.Shane is still gung-ho about the police academy, much to the chagrin of the person he decides to confide in about his new career path. There's a time-jump between the first and second episodes of a few months. Jill is still hanging around, knocking boots with Andy - til her husband... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/06/weeds-season-8-premiere-7-things-to-look-forward-to.html

Weeds Sneak Peeks: The Botwins Have New Neighbors

As much as I like following the antics of the Botwin and pseudo Botwin clan, there's another set of characters that interest me when it comes to Weeds . Due to the havoc that the family leaves in its wake, having bounced from place to place, continent to continent for seven seasons, there are plenty of acquaintances and people around the way that have been crushed by their psychosis. Not necessarily people like Jill or Dana, family members that had opposite reactions to the continued chaos, but people that the family runs into for a short time and gradually drives away or drains of their resources.
