The season was definitely one of taking stock in where the characters were after their crazy Mexican mishaps. Nancy's descent into the most selfish person ever continues to entertain. Andy, after falling out with his fiancé, is still earnest in having a meaningful life, and it of course can't happen with Nancy. Shane, the killer, gleefully takes on a faux-hardcore protector role, believing his headshot to be the beginning of a brand new him. In what is probably the most shockingly entertaining of them all, however, is Silas' growth and desire to break away from the insanity. I honestly couldn't stand the Botwin children during the Agrestic years, but burning the city down really grounded the two of them more than I would have expected. I walked away hoping Silas will get the normal, complacent life he longs for. Doug has lost everything, and is really only clinging to the Botwins as they're all that's truly left.
A notable missing link in this season is Celia Hodes, played by Elizabeth Perkins. She was a great character, and it seemed like they were setting up a real arc for her, but Kohan states it just wouldn't have been organic for her to follow Nancy across the country. I, dishearteningly, agree. As fun as Celia was, she didn't have anything to do in the fourth and fifth seasons, so the writers just tortured her.
The Botwins go on a road trip this year running away from Nancy's kingpin husband, Esteban Reyes. I really got the feeling what hurt this season was new writers. They're obviously being guided by Kohan and producers Roberto Benabib and Matt Salsberg, but the jokes dialed back their punches and the drama is more spelled out to us. Benabib says it himself in commentary on the sole episode he co-writes with Salsberg; they're digging for storylines. Little hints at a larger plot tie themselves together towards the end of the season, and they do an alright enough job at letting us know Nancy is not without her remorse, and you might find yourself confused at how you can still sympathize with her. Alas, we seem to be gearing up towards the end. I would say the only season this manages outrank is the first one.
Favorite character is Celia Hodes, and I'm hoping she'll be back during the last season at some point. Started out loving the brother-in-law Andy, but now I'd like him to be killed off too for being so annoying. Do NOT want to see him and MLP finally get together, but I suspect they will because they deserve one another. I think Shane is the only character who's normal and will end up ok.
This season everything is turned upside down and its a gripping on the edge of the seat affair .
Jenji has given us so much to wonder about this time and wherever she takes us we constantly be surprised and enthralled. This show has excellent writing ,a fantastic first rate cast ensemble to rival that of Grey's Anatomy,Dexter, Saving Grace and all the other first rate outside the box shows America has given us. You have to get it and embrace the mayhem , the laughs , the drama and the touching family that are driven by a mom trying to raise her family by any means necessary ,the only way she knows how!
Roll on season 7 and many more they can muster ! Cant wait
If you're addicted to the show, you'll watch it and enjoy it even though it's clearly the weakest season. Spoiler alert: they just spend the entire season driving around. One episode is entirely spent at a Montana State Fair. Nothing happens that really contributes to the plot as a whole until the last two episodes. Everything else is an amusing little Botwin Anecdote.
Not the best, but I'm a TV Junkie so I'll take it. I've definitely spent $16 on worse things. Hell, we've all lost $16 in our lives so at a bit more than a buck per episode watching the Botwins drift across the country is worth it.
