We’re hitting the business end of the season and for Jackie, that means her lies are beginning to pile up on top of each other. Very little direct plot happens this week. Instead, after a sweet scene in which Jackie joins Grace for mother-daughter tap classes, we really just see various moments in Jackie’s day and how each of them combines the little, and the big, lies she’s been telling.

Nurse Jackie: “Daffodil” and “Tiny Bubbles”

Posted by therebelprince on July 29, 2009

“What about people who can’t breathe at all?”

“They are already dead. They go to the waiting room.”

– Zoey and Jackie

This week, we get the best episode so far, and an average episode bolstered by some fabulous performances. Both episodes strongly let us know why the show is called “Nurse Jackie“: it’s all Edie, all the time. Read the rest of this entry »
