After the rather low key Seasons 4 and 5 (great in their own right, but vastly different from Seasons 1, 2 and 3), Weeds seemed like it was heading for it's end. In all honesty, where could this series possibly go? Well, the answer awaits in the immensely rewarding 6th Season.

After the shocking events in the 5th Season's finale, Nancy and the gang (minus Celia, which is a blessing since the show didn't need her anymore), are off on the road. Sending the characters on the run was a risky but inspired move because it exhausts them dramatically, puts them in contact with some wacky people and locations (adding much of the humor missing from Season 5), adds a real sense of urgency and danger and keeps the pace brisk and engaging.

What works best about sending Nancy and Co on the lam is that it also lets the show backtrack it's history, letting the characters come to terms with what they have done over the years. It's in that self reflective nature that the show brings in a wholly unexpected emotional level. The finale here is not necessarily shocking in terms of plot, but shocking for what Nancy does emotionally, when you see it, you will never think she had it in her. Season Six of Weeds is decidedly different in almost every aspect, but it also brings all of the shows past seasons into a greater light.

Since we finally get to really see what is going on under the surface with Nancy, Andy, Silas, Shane and yes, even Doug, we begin to understand their past (before the show started), their actions during the series and then how they react during Season Six. With the writing in such top form, the acting is even better.

Warning: contains mild spoilers.

Weeds first started out simply, pot-dealing soccer mom Nancy Botwin tries to make ends meet by introducing the herb in her suburb. However, as Nancy finds her way crawling up the drug-world grapevine, danger and comedy are ensured.

This season was one of the 'lesser' seasons, it did lack focus and seemed like a real road trip at times. The season begins to pick up once Nancy returns to her hometown, ready to flee the country to escape the Mexican Mafia, FBI and her husband who wants her head on a pike, Esteban (Demain Bichir), and his betrayed henchman, Guillermo (Guillermo Diaz).

From Seattle to Colorado and Michigan, we follow the Botwin's on an escape, living off the lam since Shane (Alexander Gould) bludgeoned Mexican VIP and queenpin, Pilar Zuazo (Kate Del Castillo) after she makes her intentions clear in season five's shocking finale.

I like to grade the series by episode for a full analysis of the season.

Episode 1: Thwack!

Fleeing Ren Mar during the aftermath proves to be difficult for Nancy & co. Andy cuts it off with Audra (special guest star Alanis Morissette) and Nancy and her family begin their life on the run. (B+)

Episode 2: Felling and Swamping

The Botwin's assume new identities and head north to hide from Esteban, now on hot pursuit of them. (B+)

Episode 3: A Yippity Sippity

Starting over in Seattle proves hard for the Botwin's as they try to manage their double lives. Silas (Hunter Parish), Nancy (Mary Louise Parker) and Andy (Justin Kirk) get jobs at a Space Needle hotel. Oh, and Shane steals a baby stroller for Stevie/Ahvi!

Weeds has certainly changed alot over the years. It started out with poor widow Nancy Botwin secretly dealing dime bags to her suburban neighbors, and then she started carrying on with a DEA agent, who she marries. She then begins to grow marijuana, and starts to sell her own strain. She's held at gunpoint, her DEA husband is murdered, and she begins to pay a debt to a drug dealer named U-Turn, who eventually dies. Her neighborhood of Agrestic (a high-class suburban neighborhood that she has pretty much dominated over the years) burns down in a wildfire which she inadvertently, sorta-kinda caused. She then moves with her family down to Ren-Mar where she begins trafficking drugs for the Mexican mafia. She falls in love with Esteban Reyes, a mayor of Tijuana. She discovers that her cover business is being used for human trafficking, so she squeals to the DEA, and the tunnel is shut down. People find out that she squealed, so she is almost killed, and then BAM - she's pregnant with Esteban's baby. So, she has the baby, gets married to him, and begins to settle down into her new life. Soon, she discovers that there's a woman named Pilar Zuazo who is Esteban's boss, who wants Nancy out of the picture. Tension between them ensues for quite some time, and then in the finale, Nancy's 13-year-old son Shane kills Pilar, knocking her in the head with a croquet mallet, leaving her to fall into a swimming pool, and bleed from the head, to death.

So, here we are, season six. Nancy and the family are on the lam again, and they stay on the lam through out the whole season, while Esteban and his crew are on their tail through out practically the whole thing.
