||This article's plot summary may be too long or excessively detailed. (June 2012) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
Andy, Doug, Silas, and Shane have been living in Copenhagen for the last three years. Silas is 24 years old and Shane is 18 years old. Shane was a puppeteer with his now ex-girlfriend, Silas found work as a model for "some flower water", and Andy and Doug gave tours of Copenhagen under the name "Wonderful Wonderful Tours" (recalling the premiere of season five, Wonderful Wonderful). Nancy's sister Jill, who has been raising Stevie to believe Nancy is his aunt, tells them Nancy has been released and is in a halfway house in New York City. They return to New York City to find Nancy, who flees in shame upon seeing them. Silas tries to start up his modeling career under the name Silas Guinard, the last name of his biological father Lars Guinard. Doug meets an old college buddy, who gets him hired at a venture capital firm.
Andy and Shane finally meet Nancy when she comes back to the halfway house from a job interview.
Jill informs Nancy she wants custody of Stevie. Nancy and Silas fly to California to attend a custody hearing, only to find it has been postponed by Jill's lawyer. Nancy drives to Jill's house to visit Stevie, but is refused. Nancy strikes a deal with Scott, Jill's husband, to allow her to use a webcam to see Stevie in secret. Meanwhile, Silas attempts to negotiate with the judge handling the custody case to have the hearing resumed. The judge agrees to meet with Nancy in his chambers and advises her to "return to those who helped you succeed... Be the Nancy that raised Silas."
While in California, Nancy attempts to obtain pot from her original supplier, Heylia James, only to be greeted by a shotgun. Dean stops the ensuing shootout; he has moved in with Heylia in return for his legal help regarding marijuana laws. Heylia is cultivating a massive field of Silas' and Conrad's MILF weed. Nancy and Heylia tentatively rekindle their old friendship.
Back in New York, Shane wins the favor of an aggressive guest detective speaking in one of his criminal justice classes. Andy pitches his motorized "Copenhagen Wheel" to Doug's business associates, only to be met with ridicule. Silas confronts Nancy about having kept him in the dark for so much of his life as to his true father's identity.
Even after their initial hostility, Heylia ultimately agrees to provide Nancy with a shipment of MILF weed in New York, in exchange for Silas's labor in harvesting the current crop, and Silas agrees. Nancy manages to see Stevie briefly at a planetarium, but he seems to have only a mild attachment to his biological mother. She whispers something into his ear before leaving. Shane also decides to provide Andy with the financial backing to open his "Copenhagen Wheel" business, hoping it will be a successful business in its own right, as well as a cover for Nancy's prospective weed business. Silas returns to New York in Heylia's van.
Shane starts taking criminal justice classes, where he impresses, befriends, then apprentices under a working NYPD detective. Nancy gets involved with the SEC in hopes of obtaining an early release from the halfway house.
Pouncy House, Silas' main competition, threatens him. Nancy makes a trip to Zoya's brother's apartment to pick up some marijuana, and finds Zoya has been released early. Nancy is forced to make love to her old cell mate. They are watched. Nancy then makes love to her ex-cell mate's brother (Demetri). She is not allowed to leave with the drugs she came to pick up.
Following the SEC investigator's instructions, Nancy allows herself to be wired and goes on a date with the CEO of Doug's company. She takes him home. Silas is there with Zoya's brother, who has delivered the weed. Zoya shows up and ostentatiously kisses Nancy. Nancy, not wanting the SEC agents to hear the details of her drug business, tries to muffle the mic with a pillow and loud music, then makes a fast retreat back to the CEO's home and sleeps with him. Nancy informs the CEO that she was wearing a wire for the SEC. The CEO flees and Nancy promptly sets fire to his home, knowing Zoya's history of arson and prior threats to the CEO will make her the prime suspect. The SEC agents meet with Nancy, threatening to throw her back in jail. Doug saves the day when he demands that the agents let everything slide, because their pension funds are tied to the CEO's company. The chief agent buys weed from Nancy. Zoya, fearing new criminal charges, flees to Vermont to realize her dream of starting a pet boarding facility. With Zoya out of the way, Nancy again sets to selling drugs, using Doug's corporate position to give herself leverage against their main competition, Pouncy House Party Rentals.
Under the pretext of updating a computer, Shane prints out a police report on Pouncy House. He shows the files to Nancy who, preoccupied with her personal drama, leaves the file on the counter.
Silas meets Emma, who claims she is a disgruntled Pouncy House employee, for lunch. Silas, enamored, offers her a job on their team, and sleeps with her after showing her the entire operations of their weed-dealing business. He wakes to find Emma gone, and discovers she is the boss of Pouncy House, and has stolen their computer, client lists, dealing routes, and other valuable information.
At Doug's office, an SEC worker is tasked with evaluating the SEC's pension funds in order to see if they are being mismanaged, and overhears Doug and a fellow worker discussing a large sum of money being taken. The police call to say that Shane has been arrested, and Nancy goes to the police department to speak with a detective. She returns to Andy's bike shop to find that Andy has kidnapped Emma at nail-gun point and is threatening to shoot her. Nancy sends Andy away, gives Emma a stern talking to, but leaves Silas and Emma to work it out. Returning to the police station, Nancy informs the detective that Shane was only looking out for his brother, who has started dating a girl involved with Pouncy House. The detective offers to help Nancy by making a drug bust on Pouncy House in order to scare Shane straight, and to help Nancy keep her boys out of trouble.
Nancy tells Demetri she has solved their ongoing weed sales problem. Silas and Emma resolve to partner up. Silas gathers everyone (his delivery men, supplier Demetri, and the Pouncy House crew) to begin working out details. He calls Nancy to let her know that he also "has solved the problem."
The detective raids Pouncy House. Emma and others from Pouncy House are arrested and Shane is brought along to experience the bust. When the detective calls Shane by his last name in front of Emma, she discovers the Botwin family's involvement in the bust. Silas, furious with Nancy, accuses her of being a control freak and breaks his partnership with her to form his own business. Nancy steals Silas' front man and his modeling connections, while Silas convinces Andy to briefly side with him and attempts to negotiate with Demetri behind Nancy's back, but Nancy overhears Silas' plans.
When Silas tells Emma that he was not involved in the drug bust, she believes him, reforms their partnership, and agrees to let him move in with her. But she tells the NYPD that Silas was never involved with Pouncy House and that Nancy only reported them to eliminate her competition. The detective confronts Shane after learning the truth and tells him that he will make Shane's life a living hell because the Botwins used the NYPD as their drug muscle.
After learning that Nancy and Silas are on opposing sides, Demetri convinces a gang of his "bored" military friends to intercept Silas' next MILF delivery from Heylia, without telling Nancy of his plan. Heylia and Dean make the delivery and are robbed at gunpoint by Demetri's men. Nancy learns of the robbery and realizes that the rivalry has gone too far. She tells Demetri to give back the shipment and attempts to call Silas and reconcile. After learning of the robbery from Heylia and Dean, Silas is infuriated and realizes that Nancy only cares about herself, her weed, and in a moment of clarity, realizes that she also cares about Stevie. Silas sees Stevie as Nancy's weakness and calls Jill, summoning her to New York to collect evidence about Nancy's drug business to use against her in court. As Jill arrives in New York, Nancy receives a call from the judge informing her that she will most likely get custody of Stevie.
Nancy returns home to find Jill at her computer downloading her customer database. Jill tells Nancy that she knows about the drug business and threatens to report her and have her sent back to prison if she doesn't sign over custody of Stevie. Nancy refuses and Jill accompanies her to Demetri's apartment to get the stolen MILF and deliver it to Silas. When they arrive, they find Demetri's crew of robbers in his apartment. The crew is "baked" and tells Nancy that Demetri was busted in an unrelated crime and sent to prison. Nancy takes the shipment from the apartment concealed in a giant stuffed gorilla wearing an Army T-shirt.
After a conversation with Andy, Silas regrets calling Jill and realizes that he has taken the rivalry between him and Nancy too far. Jill is still insistent that Nancy sign over custody, but Andy intervenes and resolves the issue by getting everyone to agree to live together in Connecticut.
Several months later, the new "Botwin, Price-Gray" estate (with a little financial help from Doug) is launched in Connecticut with a family dinner. Shane returns home from police academy training, hides his police academy hat, and lies to Nancy about why he was late for dinner, saying his art history class ran late.
As the season finale closes, the family sits at the table eating. The camera changes to a view through a rifle scope. The cross hairs pan around the table, finally settling on Nancy's head. The screen goes black as a shot is fired.

|89||13||"Do Her/Don't Do Her"||Michael Trim||Jenji Kohan||Graffiti on a coffin||September 26, 2011||0.56|
|The episode begins with Nancy coming home to find Jill sitting at her computer, e-mailing incriminating files to herself. She blackmails Nancy: if she signs custodial papers right there, then she will not go to the police with her evidence. Silas and Andy discuss the former's actions; they agree that Silas made a horrible mistake by contacting Jill. Heylia threatens Nancy at gunpoint; she demands that Nancy deliver all of her weed back by that evening or be killed. The two women go to Demetri's apartment to retrieve the rest of it. However, they find that he's been arrested for robbery. After some coaxing by the sisters, Demetri's military buddies return all but one ounce, which they'd smoked. When Heylia is given her weed, she and Nancy discuss Silas and his happiness. Ouellette grills Shane on his scheming; he declares his fervent intention to arrest Nancy. Doug, shortly before being made CFO of Vehement, finds out through Jolene that Chuck drunkenly told about the hedge fund scheme when he was found in Bali. Andy and Silas attend Charles's funeral. Andy realizes that, like Charles, his biggest wish in life is to see his family happy. Nancy forces Jill to admit that she wants more excitement in her life. When Nancy and Jill return home, they find Andy and Silas. Silas apologizes to Nancy. After Jill and Andy discuss custody options, they make a decision. The next scene focuses on a suburban home in Connecticut two months later. Inside, Nancy reveals that she's giving a large room in that house to Silas to grow weed in. Outside, the entire family (including Stevie, Jill, and the twins) are sitting down to dinner. Shane pulls up out front, where it's revealed through a flashback that he's training to be a police officer with the NYPD. During dinner, the family seems to finally be happy... This is cut short by a sniper in the bushes; he aims the scope at Nancy. The scene cuts to black as a gunshot is heard. The credits roll ending the season on a cliffhanger.|
