Conrad and Heylia's Once-An-Episode Grow House. Someone's ringing the bell, and while Heylia and Conrad argue over whose responsibility it was to get a security camera out front, Vaneeta answers the door and brings Nancy back. Oh, thank God. This storyline needed some juicing, but good. I'm not even that mad when U-Turn bursts through the door behind her and I realize this was his 7:30 surprise. He tells Conrad that he wants his crop, but Conrad says it's not ready yet. U-Turn tries to intimidate, and when it doesn't seem like it's working (which...it's Heylia, Conrad, and Vaneeta -- good fucking luck), he pulls Nancy aside and says as his second, she needs to start knocking some plants over and throwing her weight around. Such as it is. Nancy, of course, sucks ass as an intimidator, party because she so doesn't feel like intimidating Conrad and Heylia, and partly because she's apparently forgotten how she used to be an actual badass once in a while. U-Turn's dissatisfied with her wrecking skills, but after Heylia gets up in his face, calling him "Lewis," and telling him he'll get their crops and then they're done, he smashes a light fixture down and says he's the one who says who's done. And seriously, once again, I appreciate the humanizing and comedic touches with U-Turn, but since he always has to return to this hardcore thug baseline, it gets more than a little repetitive. I'm not sure what kind of payoff is going to be required after we spend a dozen or so episodes watching U-Turn terrorize all the characters we've come to love on this show. Maybe Nancy can hand him over to Dexter? Anyway, U-Turn drags Nancy away, and after she mouths an apology to her erstwhile friends, he tells her, "Thug means never having to say you're sorry!" He learned that from Ali Motherfucking McGraw, bitch!
