Following the framework of previously established dramadies on Showtime, Nurse Jackie aims to show the life of a RN working at a busy hospital who pops pills and leads a double life.

Nurse Jackie has already created some controversy because of its content. The show is for mature audiences and tells a story about a hard working nurse, dedicated to her job, but with a habit.

This show is a lot better than Hawthorne. I wasn’t immediately hooked, but the situations that Jackie gets herself into are amusing. She’s cheating on her devoted husband with her pharmacist, who supplies her with pills. She deals out her own kind of justice in order to make things right in her own eyes.

Nurse Jackie is entertaining and between all of the new medical dramas, Hawthorne, Mercy, etc., it’s definitely the best.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

Kevin heads to batting practice early one morning with Eddie. Kevin is pissed off about something. It’s Jackie’s drug use. He implies that Eddie knows about this. He pretends he doesn’t.

Gloria gets a phone call. Jackie is still on probation. She takes all of her daughter’s Xanax. Coop takes in his winnings off the football pool.

Eddie tells Jackie that Kevin knows about them. Jackie is still on the bench.

Coop wants Jackie to be his wedding coordinator. For some reason, she agrees. Zoey is having a Nurses Appreciation party in the basement. Lenny and Thor make an appearance.

After Jackie gobbled up all of Grace’s Xanax, she asks Eleanor to fill up the prescription again. She ends up taking some codeine from some patient. Kelly tells Jackie that he told HR about the Fentanyl. He didn’t name any names, but he needed to cover his and Eddie’s ass. Eddie agrees to be Coop’s best man.

Eleanor refills the prescription, but she says that she wants to help Jackie. She wants to get Jackie clean.

Jackie goes out with Kelly.
