In just under a week, Showtime will premiere the eighth season of Weeds. Now that we're closing in on the big return of the popular pot-focused drama series, we have some actual clips from the episode to share with you. But for those who want to go into this season not knowing anything about where things pick up, look no further as both of these videos reveal characters whose fate was left undetermined after the seventh season finale.
When Season 7 ended, Nancy Botwin and her family were enjoying a meal together outside, while someone was lurking in the trees with a gun pointed at them. Who got shot? These clips don't give that away, but they do show two of the Botwins, which likely means that neither of them were hit. I'm not going to draw any assumptions as to what exactly happened, who shot who, if anyone, and who may have gotten hurt, but check out these clips and see what you come up with...
In this one, Nancy's elderly neighbors are peeping over the fence to see what all the ruckus is about. Of course, by the time they got the ladder set up, everyone was gone… except one person.
So Shane appears to be ok. From what we saw of the backyard, there's one overturned chair and a pool of what could be blood on the ground.
This next one takes place at a hospital and has one character looking stressed and unusually downcast.
It must take something serious for Andy to be as mopey as we see him in the clip above. Of course, he still manages to work some banter in when the subject of tapioca and possibly being hit-on comes up. Showtime's description for the video mentions that the man Andy's speaking to is a Rabbi. We know Andy was once actively pursuing a religious lifestyle (mainly to get out of joining the military). Perhaps this discussion will lead to some deeper talk about religion? We'll have to wait and see. Evidently, someone's in the hospital, but hopefully whatever the injury was (gunshot or otherwise), they'll be ok. And then, of course, there's the matter of wondering who pulled the trigger…
Weeds Season 8 premieres July 1 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
