‘There was some sort of benediction,’ says Mary-Louise Parker
“Weeds” came to an end Sunday night (Sept. 16), having followed the Botwin family and their band of cohorts for eight seasons. Star Mary-Louise Parker says she thought the series finale was beautiful.
“I just cried when I read it. I think it’s beautiful. [Creator Jenji Kohan] managed to bring things together in a way that was really satisfying for me except for the fact that it was an end because, you know, I think most of us are sad about that. I think she just managed to bring things together in a way that wasn’t necessarily a completely—she didn’t sort of make it a total happily-ever-after thing, but there was hope in it, and there was some sort of benediction, I felt like.”
What did you think of Weeds’ series finale? Was it a fitting end for the story of Nancy Botwin? Will you miss this series on Showtime?
The farewell episode of the Showtime series features a flash forward and brief appearances of some former cast members.
WEEDS had its swan song aired on Sunday, September 16. The one-hour series finale flashed eight years into the future to show the end of storylines for the Botwins [SPOILER ALERT!] View all content of this post »
After eight years, the actress reveals the sadness in saying goodbye to Nancy Botwin.
There are only a few more episodes before “Weeds” goes up in smoke for good, and Mary-Louise Parker’s considered going out with her first real toke.
With Showtime’s long-running series about a pot-dealing suburban mom nearing the end of it’s eighth and final season, Parker reveals her conflicted feelings about the finale, her son’s unique idea of a way to keep the show on the air, the love and respect she has for working in television and how she’s mulling an apropos celebration of the last episode.
Do you love the television format? And did you feel that way coming into the show?
I do, I love it. And I did [feel that way]. I’d done “West Wing.” That was the only other television that I’d done and I mostly always only liked theater because I feel like movies, if there’s any kind of a budget whatsoever there’s so much sitting and I really like to work. My blood sugar, otherwise it just drops, like six hours sitting in a camper and I’d rather work. I’m there to work and collaborate. So movies to me are not my favorite.
I’m sorry I haven’t updated in almost 2 months or more. I’m really busy with work & others. But I promise to update very very SOON.
