Weeds Gets Two More Seasons—and a Possible Andy-Nancy Romance? | E! News
Andrew "Andy" Botwin came to the show to give a helping hand to a family initially in distress after the tragic death of Nancy's husband Judah. After a while, he. I think this is someone possibly she could imagine a real relationship with, which is Says Jenji about Andy's Nancy-crush, "I think he would be. Let's talk about the final episode of 'Weeds': Do you think the series ended on a high note, or did it all go up in smoke? "It's Time" couldn't have.
I was shocked at how smoothly he lied to Shane and Warren about Nancy, how he kept Shane from bolting from the plane, how he made enough of an impression on Silas for Silas to decide to come along, and how he used racial profiling!
The scene at the boarding gate, by the phones: Even clueless Schiff is asking Shane whether there is something between Nancy and Andy. Shane says no, but he is too close to them to really notice the slow evolution in their relationship. He just denied that they'd ever had sex, which is true as far as we know. What Shane actually said when asked what was up between Andy and Nancy was "Who knows?
Gah, that scene was so intense, since Andy and Nancy were trying to keep it together and were both on the verge of tears. They were leaning in really close to speak which was apparent when you saw that frame of Andy and Nancy from Warren's perspective.
When I first watched the end of the scene, where Nancy gives Andy that hug and says "I know" when he says "God, you ruined my life," it looked like Nancy was being brusque and dismissive as usual with Andy. However, I realized later that she was trying to stop him from betraying the truth to Shane and Warren, so it made sense that she was trying to get him to play it cool as if everything was okay.
The ruse wouldn't work if he was agitated and close to tears. If you watch the part of the scene after Andy and Nancy had the "God, you ruined my life" exchange, when Nancy is talking to Shane about changing Stevie, you can see Andy in the background trying not to betray that he's near tears: Justin Kirk is so good in this scene, even though the focus isn't on him.
I think the "truth" of her feelings about Andy were shown when he was the last one of Shane, Andy, and Warren to board. Jill agrees to raise Stevie while Nancy is in jail. After being disconnected from his mother for three years, Stevie views Nancy as his aunt and Jill as his mother.
Jill asks Nancy for permanent custody of Stevie which she immediately refuses. Both Nancy and Jill compromise and move in together to raise Stevie.

She has gotten back together with her husband Scott, although she constantly doubts why. She plans to gain full custody of Stevie-Ray, which Nancy tries to stop.
The two ultimately settle their differences about the baby and move into the "Botwin Price-Grey Family Compound with significant contribution from the Wilson fund", the house in Connecticut that Doug bought in the Season 7 finale to accommodate the unlikely family of himself, the Botwins and the Price-Greys excluding Scott, Jill's ex-husband.

He provided long term care to his incapacitated mother Bubbie, portrayed by Jo Farkas until she asked to be killed. He is on bad terms with Andy, whom he blames for losing a "sure-bet" on a horse-race; with Nancy, because he wished that Judah had married another woman who became a doctor, Francie, and he continually refers to Nancy as "Not Francie" ; and with the rest of Nancy's crew.
However, he is on somewhat good terms with Shane, with whom he first discusses the need to terminate Bubbie's life support. He refers to Shane as Alan Ladd, star of the classic 50s western Shane.

She is wholly self-centered, viewing almost all behavior on the parts of other characters as directly related or reactive to her, and displays behavior more consistent with a spoiled, mentally defective child than an adult. She also undertakes disloyal, subversive actions against others, ostensibly to teach them lessons. This takes a significant strain on her interpersonal relationships and causes many of them to sour.
She also has an alcohol abuse problem. Celia is Nancy's neighbor in the first three seasons. They start as friends during the first season during which Celia is otherwise socially isolated, due to both her general abrasiveness and her breast cancer diagnosisbut Celia puts upon Nancy in extreme ways.
