Nurse Jackie recap

Nurse Jackie recap Season 7, Episode 7 “Are You With Me, Doctor Wu?” (original airdate May 24, 2015) OK Jackie, we are proud of you. When we left Jackie last week, I wasn’t 100% confident that Grace truly did save her from a relapse. I envisioned Jackie taking Grace’s call and then turning back to take the hit she was offered. Glad I was wrong. We start Episode 7 with Jackie (Edie Falco) and Kevin (Domenic Fumusa) meeting with a school counselor to discuss Grace’s future. “May I say you two did something right,” the counselor says pointing to Grace … Continue reading

Nurse Jackie Episode 6

Nurse Jackie recap Season 7 Episode 6 “High Noon” (original airdate May 17, 2015) We get a bit of a psychedelic start to this episode, where Jackie plunges (literally) into her fridge chasing the only item in it — a bottle of pills. It was a craving dream and the start of her insomnia, which brings her to All Saints three hours early. There she finds a very hung over Dr. Prince. But he seems to have the cure for both of them. Jackie (Edie Falco) and Prince (Tony Shalhoub) share some one-on-one time while rehydrating (true nurse style) compliments … Continue reading

Nurse Jackie recap Season 7, Episode 5 “Coop Out” (original airdate May 10, 2015) As the title implies, this episode sees Dr. Fitch “Coop” Cooper (Peter Facinelli) making his final rounds and a pretty heartfelt goodbye (yep, I almost cried), but before we go there, here’s the rundown on the episode. It’s all about Jackie (Edie Falco) and Eddie (Paul Schulze) – and they got that thing everybody wants. Jackie thinks it’s the suitcase of drugs that Eddie is towing in his pharma-bag, Eddie thinks it’s a special kind of love. He’d do anything for her, and he kisses her … Continue reading

Wait, Jackie's a nice lady ... Nurse Jackie recap Season 7 Episode 4

Nurse Jackie recap Season 7 Episode 4 “Nice Ladies” (original airdate May 3, 2015) We start in the courtroom where Jackie’s attorney Barry Wolfe (Mark Feuerstein) is making his case. He starts by explaining how Jackie is “a nice lady.” Ahem, what? Oh, yes. Remember how she was on her way to help Hurricane Penny victims and then how she stopped to save another lady? “Is it any wonder that that one person, Jackie Peyton, took something to smooth the edges?” Heck, even Wolfe, pops a drug / alcohol combo before he flies, he tells the judge. “Gratitude,” Wolfe says. … Continue reading

Claire comes down the stairs and stares helplessly flanking one side of the room, Jenny comes around a corner and helms the other side. But it’s going to be a showdown “Taran put your gun down,” Jenny says. OK, so she knows the bloke.
