WEEDS VIDEO Series Finale: I'll Come to You...
Nancy tries to get Andy to come back to her.
This is my favourite scene of the series finale. It was so well-performed! It was heart-breakingly evident if you know the two characters, what was going on on the inside especially as the camera moved in tight on their faces. Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin and Justin Kirk as her former brother-in-lawn Andy Botwin, he in love with her for all 8 seasons of the show, she never in love with him, though greatly emotionally dependent on him, some would say Nancy was an emotional leech Andy and certainly, at times she was. Conversely, he could be a giant pain--very annoying until he 'found his purpose.'
Flickers of regret, wistfulness, hurt and deep love cross both character's faces and for Andy the whole time a look of serenity, a sense of finally having found his place in the world (which I'm thinking spurs him to tell to Nancy to do it, it worked for him).
Though it did occur to me that just because Nancy is sending 'Stevie' off to boarding school at age 13 (to be on a great soccer team, as per his request) it is nowhere near the point where she is done with being his responsible parent. She's got all of his teens--and he is just beginning his teen years. So no treks to India in Nancy's immediate future --at least not without the kid--her last child at home, 'Little Stevie.'
(Sadly, both of Stevie's dads died. Nancy was most recently made a widow (her 4th time) by Rabbi David Bloom who died after swerving to avoid hitting a bear. Before that there was Stevie Reyes' bio-dad, Estaban Reyes was a medium-size Mexican drug lord who died not of old age in prison. Also, an FBI Agent for about 5 -minutes and #1, the late, lamented Juda Botwin.)
This took forever to screencap 'cos I cried all the way through!
I console myself thinking that if Nancy had fallen in love with Andy and married him--he'd be dead as Weeds creator Jenji Kohan explains.
As sad as I am that Weeds is over I'm really glad they did not kill anyone off.
