I fan-wanked that Grace decided she didn't like her new step-mother any better than she liked Jackie, but either they've got something up their sleeve to explain her erratic behavior or else they have no idea what they're doing with the character. And Coop steps up his wedding plans and books the chapel. Akalitus posts a security guard by the Pill-O-Matix and approaches Dr. Roman get some bad news. That was a jump the shark moment right there. Prince finds out the true reason why Akalitus shows no compassion towards Jackie. At work, Jackie must deal with a dying man who refuses further treatment, while Eddie faces the possibility of being replaced by an automated dispensory.
I'm assuming that the whole Eddie thing will fall apart. And I'd say both of them regularly show better judgment in their lives than Zoey does. Gregory House tackles health mysteries as would a medical Sherlock Holmes, all the while playing mind games with colleagues that include his best friend, oncologist James Wilson. At the people who were duped with them. I could maybe - maybe - see them smoking a joint, at most, but shrooms? Nothing in previous seasons points to Akalitus being familiar with things addiction wise.
Fiona starts a fire in school. Edited May 29, 2015 by dangwoodchucks Kevin's sister made him go to one Alanon meeting, and there was one episode where everyone made a big deal about Grace starting a chapter of Alateen, but there was no real effort made to explore the real problems of codependency or the actual work people do in these programs. Archived from on August 26, 2009. Too bad her motivation for wanting to get out of drug selling was because of Grace's newfound pride in her mother, not because she feared someone was dying at the very place she and Eddie were peddling their drugs. Kevin should decide to do it on his own for the girls' sake.
Eddie visits the bar and continues his friendship with Kevin. In the meantime the campaign's end has its effects on Coop, and Eddie is back as the hospital's pharmacist. No way in hell I believe Carrie and Zoey doing shrooms. If she had that much experience with an addict she would have known not to give Jackie pain medication last season. Akalitus throws Jackie's urine sample in to the trash.
That was a jump the shark moment right there. Alkalitis boning her fish, wowing the restaurant. Prentiss talks to Akalitus about his relationship with Zoey. I suspect Jackie is in a dream-coma from her car accident. They may have been behaving irresponsibly but at the time he came upon them they were intoxicated and incapable of taking care of themselves in a public place. Especially as this season has shown Kevin to be the big fuck-up, financially speaking and otherwise. How does Jackie always land on her feet? Don't for a moment believe it's all hearts and flowers with her and Eddie.
Jackie becomes determined to stop dealing and makes one last purge of her stash with Eddie, but the deal goes awry just as their relationship reaches a new level. Jackie gets tossed out of the mother-daughter dance lessons after a clash with a mother whom she knew from her high school days. Seems like it might have come up during that arc, sheesh. And the Eddie thing just sucks. And of living with their own ongoing, almost furtive, ambivalence.
My best guess is that the writers have just made the show even more unrealistic than it was before, and they don't see that as an issue. I thought the same thing too. R Paul Schulze as Eddie and Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton in Nurse Jackie Season 7, Episode 07. I've watched every episode and I still can't figure out when or why or how Grace suddenly morphed into this angel child. I just didn't buy that Zoey would actually do shrooms. This seemed like a wasted episode. Prince and Akalitus bond over lunch when she reveals something from her past.
At least that's the way I'm looking at it because otherwise it's just not a good story. Jackie should consider it given what she heard Grace tell Fiona, but I think Jackie would feel like it's admitting she's an addict. And of course, the patient died cause hero Jackie wasn't around for the save. I might suspect the whole season is some coma-induced dream except that the new show-runners have proven themselves to be unable to write anything remotely realistic. I could believe Gloria's story.
O'Hara, in Jackie's absence, humorously struggles with the gushing, innocent gratitude of her young patient's twin brother. This season has been so strange and inauthentic that I guess 'all a coma' could work, but they'd better do that reveal soon. Well, Kevin's heading for a financial crash and Jackie thinks she's given up dealing for good. I do also hate that the show feels the need to continually have Akalitus in a position where she justify why she is so hard on Jackie. Jackie overdoses on the drugs on the hospital floor as her fate is left ambiguous.
