[Weeds] 1.06 "Dead in the Nethers" [2008-01-08]

We opened with Be Good Tanyas music ("Littlest Bird"), so that's the second time I've known a song played in this episode. (The song at the end sounded like Sarah McLachlan. The Weeds wiki suggets "Ballerina" by Leona Naess. Why did it sound so familiar to me? And oh man, what a scene, btw.)

Okay, honey, God gave you two of your own hands for a reason. But I did like her delivery when Shane asked if they had any batteries and she was really sure that they didn't.

Conrad (Nancy's "carpenter") to Celia: "When I nail something, it stays nailed."

When we first saw Shane filming his terrorist video, Eric said something about how this wasn't going to end well. Hi, it is not really enjoyable watching with someone who has supposedly seen this before but routinely forgets things. "The infidels are ready to meet your demands," or whatever Nancy's exact line, was really touching. I should have known to interpret Shane's video that way since we had the Previouslies with his gangster rap and everything and the scene where he tries to show her the video and she's going out and he's all upset that she's going out. But no, I spent the whole episode kind of confused as to where we were going with this (plus, mildly anxious because of what Eric had said).

Um, what else happened in this ep? Andy's sponsor is pretty, but that's about all she's got going for her. I do really like Silas and Megan, so I'm willing to roll with her taking him back. And Lupita found out about Nancy's dealing; and Nancy splitting her identity as dealer and mom is a theme.
