Nurse Jackie

Anyone can tell me how the last episode of the last season ended?%0D %0D I didn't have Showtime that year, and wondered what happened to Nurse Jackie and the British female doctor.%0D %0D Just watched episode 1 of this season.%0D %0D Oh, and how is she friends with the pharmacist now?%0D %0D Oh, and I still just love Zoe.

Can't answer any of your questions OP, since I don't regularly watch the show. But the guy who plays Jackie's husband is so fucking hot.

by Anonymousreply 103/29/2011

r1 it ended with her husband confronting her about being a drug addict and having the secret po box and she locked herself in the bathroom and laughed at herself in the mirror about going to rehab.

All the characters on this show are so fucking unlikable and the husband is so miscast.

And whoever plays the hospital administrator is fucking brilliant. Has she done anything else? I could watch her all day long.

by Anonymousreply 603/29/2011

Not just the husband, but the British doctor confronted Jackie about her drug use - Jackie also used the money the British doctor gave her for her daughter's private school to buy drugs for herself.

The administrator is played by Anna Deavere Smith, who also played a lady general on The West Wing. She's a brilliant solo actress on stage - does 1-woman shows about important issues that are amazing. Two of them made it to PBS and are available on video: Fires in the Mirror (about the black/Hasidic Jewish clashes known as the Crown Heights riots in Brooklyn, NY) and Twilight: Los Angeles about the post-OJ verdict riots in LA. She interviews hundreds of people and turns the interviews into collage-type scripts where she plays all the different people she has interviewed. Fabulous.

Sorry to be so naive, but I haven't spent any time addicted to prescription painkillers.

What effect do the drugs Jackie is addicted to have on her, exactly? Does she actually take them in part to relieve pain, or did she to start with? Is it just a question of once you're addicted, you have withdrawal symptoms if you don't take them, and you need them to feel normal?

Jackie is such a mean, raging bitch addict, but I notice they do try to soften her up a little and make her look less monstrous by making her do something charitable with some of her patients. I don't think I could watch if they didn't do that.

[quote]they've never really explained why Jackie uses

Sure they have. She started after a back injury years ago and kept it up because she felt pressured to keep on working through the pain rather than take time off to heal or have surgery. As a middle-aged woman and pretty much sole supporter of the family, she feared losing her job to someone younger, healthier, cheaper.

Not really, R33. Falco's character is pretending with manic desperation that nothing's wrong, la la la la la. The kids don't seem to know yet, and everybody else is kinda sorta playing along, except for the doctor. The show's producers know addiction issues very, very well.

Dominic was in the NY Shakespeare staging of "Take Me Out", but not the Broadway staging. I always wondered what happened there.

Love this show and just rented at the video store the second season, first 2 discs. There's one more, I'll get it this weekend. The husband is megahot the one she's fucking on the side, sorta hot, but not in the same league. Love Edie, she's such a bitch, so's the bi Brit doc, she reminds me of Samantha, S&TC.

Zoe has lost all of her weight and is wearing baggy clothes and padding to look chubby.

Jackie has had some facial work, has gained some weight and they have improved her make-up and lighting. Now she looks much less like a witch/zombie.

The show has taken a strange twist, it is more 'funny' and surreal. I see Steve Buscemi directed an episode.

I keep seeing the commercials here in NYC for her on Broadway in House of Blue Leaves... she's cast with Ben Stiller. Stiller is no spring chicken but is much, much younger than Falco, or at least appears to be.

If I'm not mistaken, I think in previous episodes they said Jackie and Kevin were HS sweethearts. I could totally buy that she was cuter back then, and she just aged more poorly. As far as why he puts up with her- she's the main wage earner. That little corner tavern Kevin runs can't be doing much business, it's gotta be in the red. Especially with him sitting there drinking with the customers during broad daylight.

I've been a fan of the show, but the lack of fallout from last season't intervention, plus the emphasis on ridiculous, pointless subplots involving the supporting cast, have left me cold this season.

Now, there's no tension left, wondering when Jackie's web of lies will be discovered. Apparently, everyone more or less forgave her and it was business as usual after ten minutes.

Dr. Cruz (Bobby Cannavle) makes an appearance show next week. I think he and Jackie are going to have grief sex over the death of his son and her fellow drug buddy. The show is okay but I don't understand why all these people are in love in Jackie. Her manipulative ways are really off-putting to say the least.

When she showed the picture to her ex that her daughter drew with Jackie and her girls on one side and him over at the opposite side of the page I thought "bitch probably drew that herself to get him to agree to joint custody."

Yes, Jackie needs to date someone HER age and who looks more like her partner might look. The cop seemed to be a perfect match for her, physically anyway, but of course....

[bold] **SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER*****[/bold]

[bold]SPOILER - STOP READING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW MORE[/bold]

Jackie ends up hooking up with Bobby Cannavale next week. All of those absurd, completely out-of-character phone calls and voice messages she leaves on the dead kid's phone are heard by his dad, Bobby Cannavale and he orders her to dump her cop date and come to his house... Prior to that, Jackie prepared for her date at the hospital. Zoe helped her get dressed and there was much ooohing and ahhing and just complete stupidity that made the Jackie of the first two seasons seem like a dream sequence. Jackie now indulges staff gossip about her to the point where they just ask her questions out in the open and she feigns a passive irritation of it. Where did the secretive, mysterious Jackie go?!?

Cop gets her on date, brings her to a fancy restaurant that they both laugh at and they end up going to a cozy little fish and chips place. Jackie receives a shocking phone call from the dead kid while having dinner with sweet, sexy cop daddy.. It's Bobby Cannavale, not only has he called her, he's standing in a dark corner of the restaurant where she sees him as he says "Dump the date. I need to see you"... Jackie literally dumps the cop right there and heads over to Bobby's place...

Oddly, Bobby didn't wait for her outside. Oddly, Bobby knew exactly where she was. How? We don't know. Who cares, says the writers.. Nobody's gonna ask, right? ...And they fuck. (Bobby Cannavale is SO not what I expected shirtless. I thought he'd be so much more sexy. He's not.)

So now, Jackie will have this 'complicated' thing going on where she likely strings along poor cop who wants to find love with her, her pharmacist boyfriend Eddie (who we KNOW is going to have Jackie back in the sack at some point) and Dr. Bobby Cannavale who apparently will be making a return as a regular character week after next. UGH.

...As if 'Thor' and 'Zoe' aren't insufferable enough characters.

There's also drama with Grace, her daughter, but I'll not go into it unless someone asks.

[bold]! ! ! SPOILER - SPOILER - SPOILER - SPOILER SPOILER ! ! ![/bold]

For those who're unable to jump ahead one week, I'll give you a short rundown so stop reading if you're uptight about knowing what's going to happen... AND, it's going to spoil a tense situation they've previewed.

No update on Jackie and Grace. Did they meet with Kevin as a 'family'? Is Grace grounded? Is she going to turn into a total goth whore and start panhandling for spare charge at Astor Place or sleep on a bench at Union Square? We don't know... not yet.

Back at the hospital, Jackie has a lunch date with Frank the cop. After being initially repelled by Frank the cop myself, I decided last episode that he's actually adorable and is a huge, blue ribbon catch. He's clearly already in love with Jackie, or close to it. Jackie is walking through a hall, she gets to her old bathroom where she used to snort up... Looks to the left...looks to the right... goes into the ladies room.. Another employee brushes beside her on the way out and Jackie looks around to make sure she's alone.. Uh oh.. This could be bad... She looks at herself in the mirror with a void stare... Her hand reaches into her pocket, the familiar hiding place of all those happy blue pills.. She grabs onto her prize and lifts it to her mouth.... it's a tube of lipstick! - Jackie likes Frank, the huggable, bearish, Italian cop.. She fusses with her hair a bit and, carefully, gently applies the lipstick and returns to the nurse's station.

Zoe is doing her transcribing work, listening to the doctor's notes on tape...(you know what's coming, right?).. Zoe's NEVER been seen doing this and having worked in a hospital before, nurses are rarely the ones doing this kinda thing, at least ER nurses. Zoe looks at Jackie and notices the change.. "You look pretty".. Later on, she hears Coop's nasty sex talk to whorish new doctor and Jackie ends up confronting Coop about it later.

As Jackie is about to leave for date with sexy Cop Frank, he walks in... "I'm so sorry, blah blah blah crap downtown I have to do, have to reschedule".... "You came HERE to cancel lunch on me? You couldn't have sent a text?" says Jackie. Frank tells her something like how she's too important for a text and makes a joke and smiles. Jackie likes him back.

Akalitis fails to get an escort for a 400lb mental patient who breaks into the pharmacy and destroys it, millions of bills everywhere. Thor comes in on Jackie and Eddie cleaning it up and says something pretty funny and leaves. Later, there's a funny moment between Thor, Jackie and Eddie as they walk a hall and Eddies teases Thor about his pot smoking date with a twink dancer... Looking at Thor and his massive stomach he now has, one wonders how on Earth Thor has managed to trick with a twink Broadway dancer but, anyway. There is a scheme hatched between the three to get blood work from Akalitis after her most recent, dangerous forgetful fuck-up.. They pull it off, and the results come in on the following episode.. And they're enlightening and apparently not so good.

The E.R. gets a call, not long after Frank calls Jackie from the South Street Seaport to flirt with her, there is a shooting. One cop down and it's grave, they don't know who but the cop is coming from the Seaport. Jackie is terrified but she turns into Nurse Jackie, begins shouting orders in preparation for the wounded, clearing the E.R. of family and guests, ordering nurses to put radiology on stand-by, ordering IVs and drugs, doing it all as she walks through the E.R. and pointing, like a general taking the battlefield.

Jackie begs for a name of the cop on his way in, nobody knows... The scene is tense and heart wrenching... The cop is rolled in on a stretcher, we see his legs, then his bloody torso.... then his face.........

by Anonymousreply 10605/23/2013

You forgot the entire Zoe trying to soften up the new tough Army doctor subplot. It makes me sad at how far this show has fallen. It used to be if not great, extremely watchable.

by Anonymousreply 10705/23/2013

R107, the Zoe thing just wasn't worth noting. Oddly, usually being the one in the thread who hates the character the most, she's a lot more bearable this season. She's calmed down a bit. But the cutesy, doe-eyed, naive adult woman thing is still there and it's irritating.

Coop's attempting to rope the whorish doctor into being an actual doctor but I don't think it's going to last. She'll have to leave in order to make way for O'Hara's return next season.

by Anonymousreply 10805/23/2013

How did the whore doctor even get the job in the first place? Beyond that, there is just something "off" about the show this season but I am too lazy to try to put my finger on it. Maybe now that Jackie isn't using and lying and deceiving everyone while being a good nurse, the novelty isn't there and we're left with a generic hospital drama (with a low budget, no less).

by Anonymousreply 10905/23/2013

It HAS become somewhat generic hasn't it? Good word for it.

The episode described as a spoiler is, for some reason, already On Demand.

What is the point of such a blow-by-blow recap of the next episode?

People like Jackie because she's a compassionate and brave nurse who genuinely cares about her patients. She is also a good friend to those she trusts. When we met her, she was a drug addict and that obviously warped her character. The manipulation and lying were symptoms of her addiction and her efforts to hide it. Of course she is different now that she's clean. Eddie's continuing friendship with her is unreal. A contrivance to keep the character in the show. She betrayed him in so many ways. Her husband's reaction is more real.

I agree completely. Sometimes shows need to have the courage to jettison characters who would realistically not be around anymore.

by Anonymousreply 11305/23/2013

I love this show but I fast forwarded through the whole latest On Demand episode that hasn't been broadcast. The show is completely unbelievable and unbearable for me to watch anymore. That cop is cute and fun, but there is no way he would fall in love with Jackie who looks like she could be his mom. Just a few episodes ago Jackie was a horrible drug addict - narcissist - sociopath, and now she's a slapstick, sexy, selfless Mother Teresa.

by Anonymousreply 11405/23/2013

I think the cop is cuter by the episode and look forward to seeing him shirtless. He's an adorable little bear.

WHY he would be swooning over poor Jackie is beyond me.

Jackie's oldest daughter is completely out of control, as evidenced by next week's episode I watched OnDemand, and it's gonna get worse...as in, drugs. Are we now going to be be deluged in a saving Grace storyline that will have millions turning the channel? Nobody wants to watch this show to see Jackie's kids.

I wish the new whore doctor would leave already. It's completely unbelievable that someone who so detests being in a hospital, so poorly qualified and ready to be a physician would have ever been hired.

And Dr. Pentis is becoming more of a stereotype by the day. Get rid of him already and his tiresome, unapproachable God complex.

by Anonymousreply 11505/28/2013

At least the bear cop is a better match for Jackie than the young ex-husband. Now I watch the show just to see how silly it gets.

by Anonymousreply 11605/28/2013

I still don't understand the purpose of "Thor" except to pop-in to random scenes and do or say something stereotypically gay, like a gay minstrel.

They might as well put a jester's hat on him and have him shake two pink maracas after each punchline and be done with it.

At least the other gay guy (Momo?) had detailed lines and an intimate repor with Jackie.

by Anonymousreply 11705/28/2013

R115, you've never met someone who clearly got to where they were b/c of their looks? It only seems unbelievable if Akalitus did the hiring.

I used to work for an internet company where all the managers were hot as hell but within minutes you realized they were incompetent and the only DSL they knew about were their own luscious lips. The hotties got ugly real fast when you were made to cover for them.

by Anonymousreply 11805/28/2013

R118, I suppose there's a lot of truth to that, but the character we're talking about comes across as blatantly incompetent and even terrified, so it's fair to assume there would have been even a brief vetting of her.

Also, Prentis works for Akalitis. Is this common? Would the ER chief report to/work for the nursing/staffing manager?

I wish Zoe would get "an awesome new job" at another hospital and move-on, maybe get her on show on WE or something, anything to get her away.

I love Akalitis. I bet she'd be a supreme bitch to work for but I still think I'd love her as a boss.

Why is Eddie still there again?

by Anonymousreply 11905/28/2013

I watched the latest episode on OnDemand - we can see it a week early there. There is a scene where Jackie and the cop are in bed together. The contrast between the smooth young cop and Edie Falco is shocking. She is carpeted in rhino-like wrinkles, how could she possibly allow herself to be filmed like that? I know I have said this before, but she must not watch the show or she'd see it. I am a fan of Falco and wish her great success, but this contrast between an old woman and a young man is very, very bad. It seems to me it would be easy to fix with make-up or some camera technique. Why don't they do it? Falco must believe she is still young and beautiful. How can that be - she must look in the mirror?

by Anonymousreply 12005/28/2013

This show is going down the toilet, can't stand the new season, I'm only watching because there isn't anything else on to watch. I don't like that cop at all, he is UGLY esp that beauty mark on his face.

That slut doctor and coop storyline is so dumb, that would never happen in a real hospital ER, they don't have time for that.

by Anonymousreply 12105/28/2013

[quote]She is carpeted in rhino-like wrinkles,

HAHA! That made me spit laugh. Poor Edie F.

Then again, think of all those fugly, gross guys on TV and movies who had the hot wives and girlfriends.. It goes both way and it's even worse with the ugly guy/pretty woman teaming.. Kevin James and Seinfeld come to mind.

R121, the cop kinda grows on you if you let yourself warm up to him. There are some shots of him where he's actually VERY cute and looks years younger than in the first couple of episodes he was in. It's strange. Maybe something with the lighting. But I agree, the mold thing on his cheek is gross but he also seems like a more realistic boyfriend for Jackie.

Can't we just see Kevin nude in nothing but a pair of short black snug boxer briefs, from the feet to chest, just once? Please? Is that too much to ask?

by Anonymousreply 12205/28/2013

This is the best show on TV. I wish they hadn't gotten rid of Momo after Season One, though.

by Anonymousreply 12305/28/2013

It used to be well-written, but I never thought it was the best show on TV, though. This must be the last year, does anyone one know? The writers seem to be preparing us for a wrap-up of the series. Looks to me like their is going to be a wedding. Falco is going to marry the cop, dressed in white, in tears... the last episode.

by Anonymousreply 12405/28/2013

I think Jackie is going to get back with the husband.

SPOILER!!!!!

I watch the new eps one week in advance on demand. Best thing so far this season: Jackie's daughter snorting coke at the end of the latest episode. Like mother like daughter?

The current writers must have never seen a recent hospital show because they seem to think doctors sneaking a fuck in an empty room is "edgy" and daring. The fact that this show is only 30 minutes is the best thing going for it. It's just good enough that a half hour isn't a waste of time, but an hour would be.

the cop at least looks suitable for Jackie.

by Anonymousreply 13206/05/2013

I keep WANTING to love it, but it's getting difficult.

Then again, for a somewhat edgy show initially, it's due to have it's off seasons I suppose, so this season could be exhibiting its growing pains.

Either way, it's getting awful close to both tiresome network cliche' television and shark jumping.

Nobody... NOBODY is interested in her obnoxious, irritating daughter. We get it, her kids are fucked up, one of them at least. Is Grace supposed to be making up for Jackie's lack of bad behavior?

If anybody else has jumped ahead to see next week's episode... WOW! The last minute or so surprised even me. I thought I knew something was developing, but then figured the sexy whore doctor would...you know... but... you know... Anyway, that was kinda fun. Wonder how long that will play out. It's a wee bit unbelievable but, okay.. Whatever. It's cool.

I really used to hate Jackie and watched in hopes of her finally getting caught. But once she became a sober I saw the side of Jackie that her coworkers admired and I have actually come to like her.

BTW - Eddie has no reason to be mad at Jackie anymore. He was the one that ensured the end of her marriage to Kevin by telling him everything. He got his revenge.

by Anonymousreply 15006/14/2013

I thought this season was better than the last, but I think it suffered some without the Brit doctor. Although Coop is somewhat more interesting.

I find Jackie sober far more boring. Her juxtaposition of super-capable nurse, caring mom, with her complete duplicity as a philanderer and junkie is what made her fascinating. I'm interested to see if next season brings relapse.

Nope, meeting was for real. Being Jackie, she took the pill and showed up for the meeting. Eve Best, who plays Brit doctor, wanted to turn up at the meeting to surprise Jackie after reading the season finale script, according to a brief chat with showrunners--on Showtime On Demand after episode.

by Anonymousreply 15506/14/2013

The last couple of episodes saved it for me.

Can't stand the cop storyline, sorry.

by Anonymousreply 15606/14/2013

I agree it was a hallucination, R150, because I don't think that either Grace or Dr. O'Hara ended up there.

And I think that scene between Frank and Jackie in bed was the last one for for him because I think he got killed later that day.

Jackie will probably hit an even worse bottom next season, which will probably be its last.

I believe she actually showed up for the anniversary and is now lying again. That is going to be the death of her and the cop.

by Anonymousreply 15906/16/2013

R159, watch their scene again. It easily foreshadows his probable death.

The aim for next season, as outlined by the producers, is Jackie being alone in the house and taking drugs again. It'll be a helluva lot easier with Frank not in the picture.
