Which... I mean, I've always said this show is about the economy of men and how, if you are somehow marginal to that conversation -- black, female, gay, Latino -- then you have a duty to yourself to step outside the bonds of that conversation. All drug legislation is about keeping poor people poor, because what do the white men care if you create a black market, as long as the white market stays clean.
And for Nancy, that has meant a lot of things, leveraging herself in all kinds of ways (demeaning herself not very often at all, if you think about it this way) in order to get there. So playing the White Lady Card now that she's stuck in the Esteban/Guillermo dynamic, to open her cage up to the greater White People of Iceland dynamic, it's cynical but to me it's just crossing the same kind of line, in the only circumstance maybe ever where it's appropriate to do so:
"White privilege is, after all, a privilege!"
So they're kind of angry, I think, to be reminded that this is the world that we live in -- like, Andy's vic was probably a lot more resigned -- because it's not actually the world they live in, very much of the time. Which, that's a lot to play because the scene could also be read as, "The villains are thwarted by the wily heroine." Which, they're not villains and she's sure as fuck not a heroine, but this show gets things like this really weird a lot of the time, so I wanted to clap for that little moment because the actors are really selling it all.
Guillermo pretends it was just an accident and she does Nice White Lady that -- with every step back -- gets more and more awesomely harsh: "No, no, it's my fault. I'm so sorry, it was my fault, I set it down on the counter. It could have happened to anybody. Who's also from Iceland!"
Nancy bounces and they get taken in immediately, and it's a sad commentary on our sad times that actually works. Andy's on the phone with Plan C, and Schiff's bitching about how Nancy was always late -- for class, for dinner -- and how he used to buy her Lean Cuisines because at his house there was no cooking (too crazy, too pervy) and at hers there was no cooking either (too sad, too drunk). Shane finally asks the question nobody fucking wanted the answer to.
