Qualitative Spatial Reasoning

Say what you will about "Weeds" but every single season always builds up to a fantastic close. In the penultimate episode of the season, we are left on the edge of our seats, biting our nails waiting to see what happens next.

In the previous episode, Nancy and Silas had their big split. This conflict has been brewing for some time. Throughout season six and through out the entire seventh season. This time the final straw came when Nancy (correctly) had a rival drug gang taken down by the cops. Silas, who has been thinking with his dick for since he met Emma (Michelle Trachtenberg) has now struck out on his own as Nancy's direct competitor.

Things go bad when Nancy's fuck buddy, Dmitri, without telling her has his friends violently rob Heylia and Dean as they are driving in to deliver a new shipment of MILF to Silas... and things spiral out of control from there.

- Nancy wants to return the MILF and end this.
- Silas wants to hit Nancy back and hit her hard.
- Emma wants to hand Nancy over to the cops and seems to be doing so.

A lot happened in this episode, but it is near impossible to critique the plot points without knowing where everything is headed. I am usually pretty good at predicting the directions movies and TV shows will take, but "Weeds" always manages to surprise me with it's finales. I really have no idea what to say, or what to call.

However this episode was masterful and bringing the classic humor "Weeds" was always known for and for being suspenseful. The season finale airs tomorrow night, and I will shortly after post a review of the episode and the overall season.

So stay tuned, same stone time, same stoned channel.
