This episode reminded me of how Weeds used to be in the beginning. Part comedy, part drama interspersed correctly in the 25 odd minutes in such a way that you laugh your guts off, and the same time get an adrenaline rush with a suspense that makes sure you tune in next week.
This episode has also given us a teaser of what to expect for the remainder of the season. The drama of Shane getting shot was converted into a full-blown comedy of him getting high on pain killers and beer. The usual comedy gang of Andy, Doug, and Dean got little screen time - and surprisingly it worked really well. I loved the scene where Doug exacts his revenge on Dean by asking him to put his nuts into freshly brewed hot cup of coffee. Awesome episode. Hope they do no botch up the remaining episodes.
