  • An Elaborate Ploy and an Almond Joy: A Doug Wilson Story

    Peter tries to bust Haylia but she is holding a religious ceremony with her friend Joseph and other members of the Nation of Islam in her home she isn't taken away after Nancy tipped her off behind Peter's back. Peter becomes infuriated and gives her an ultimatum. Andy and the kids prepare for Judah's Birthday celebration for the year as Celia learns that Doug may be more competent at his job than he would let on as he enlightens her on a shady motion in progress and they grow close together and Dean keeps his daughter's well earned modeling money out of the hands of her mother. Great further installment and want to see the story go deeper and see how U Turn fits into this and if he will buy from Conrad's and Nancy's stash as is now conveniently locked away in a 5-digit locked safe.
  • Nancy DEA's agent pays Heylia a visit. Nancy and Conrad install a safe within the grow house. Doug and Celia come to verbal blows as Doug tries to make Celia look small at a council meeting.

    Lots of little twists came through in this episode for sure. HEylia gets place gets raided by the DEA, who find absolutely nothing, they actually interupt a muslim religious meeting being held at her house, hmmmm, so thats why she was cuddling up to the pie man, she did that totally so that she would have an air tight alibi and also an excuse that they would not be able to raid her again in the future, ok well that was my feeling, having a little bit of a warning from Nancy also helped.

    Doug and celia are at each others throats over council business, doug tries to undermine celia's authority at the meeting. Afterwards in one of the offices, they end up have a sex session, both of them are confused over it - they do say that love and hate is a fine line.

    Nancy lets Andy back into the operation after withholding his cut last week, for monies owed. But this week he was allowed back into the work force and it was nice to see he reaction when his old girlfriend turns up at the end of the episode. Nancy has acknowledge that Peter is a DEA man, after Shane revealed this fact to Silas and Andy, who then quizzed her decision about him, only to be told on their father's birthday that they are actually married.
  • It's Judah's birthday.

    Great episode with an excellent twist. The biggest twist, for me, was Doug coming to Celia's aid during the council meeting followed by their meeting in the office which lead to them having sex. Is it revenge on Dean, an attempt to get the seat on the council back? Neither knew, but it happened nonetheless.

    I think it is good that Andy is back in the fold. Yes, he's a freeloader but he could do more harm from the outside than on the inside.

    I liked that Nancy warned Heylia.

    Shane revealing to Silas and Andy that Peter is with the DEA was a great moment. Both Silas and Andy were amazed that Nancy could even consider this and when Nancy tried to explain it to Silas and was more or less forced to tell him about their marriage, on Judah's birthday even, Silas freaked out.
  • Ouch (very delayed)...

    So I am not sure how Nancy is ever going to get her family back, not even back to a dysfunctional place. Her job is doing ok for the moment (looks like Haylia is going to try to hurt her growing in the future). Even though Nancy did tell Heylia about the DEA raid so she could cover herself. Oh well – all is fair in love and war. Nancy and Peter seem to be on their last leg – too many fights over their clashing jobs. I am glad that Andy is back on the pay role. He does owe Nancy a lot but he is also part of the group. What was up w/ Doug and Celia?? Oh my god!! Funny and creepy at the same time. Can’t wait until next week – looks like Conrad and Nancy are going to hook-up or come close to it. I also love the Deschanel sisters (Emily from Bones and Zooey from Eulogy and Hitchhiker’s Guide) so I am glad to see Zooey as Andy’s crazy ex.
