Will Jackie “Sink or Swim” or Maybe, Just Tread Water (For Now)?

Having managed to to breeze through half of Nurse Jackie‘s sixth season I can state it is most assuredly one heck of roller coaster ride. In the past, Jackie has seemed on the verge of getting caught, then does something audacious and gets herself out of it–unless you are talking cheating on husband Kevin–then she absolutely did get caught and called on it, which resulted, ultimately, in her current situation where living alone she can much more easily live a lie–and she is living that lie to the hilt.

Jackie will do anything for a fix, she has absolutely no pride left as evidenced in the episode where she has a quicky sexual encounter atop a grungy club bathroom counter with a guy about half her age, while her steady cop-boyfriend awaits her return out on the dance floor. As nice a guy he is, I think Jackie picks men who are a bit slow on the the realization that she is often high as a kite–I mean, don’t they ever notice her pupils?

NURSE JACKIE 601 – “Sink or Swim”
Premiere Date: 4/13/2014
Jackie is back to using drugs again, but she’s doing it differently this time. She’s maintaining a ‘ clean and sober cover’ going to NA meetings, and never stealing pills from the hospital. She’s even going to the gym in the morning—and getting her drugs from the locker room towel girl. We see that Grace, who is now living with her dad, is still secretly experimenting with drugs. Meanwhile, at All Saints, Jackie is assigned by Prentiss to ‘shadow’ Carrie now that her 3 month probation is up. Zoey finds out that everyone knows about her ‘secret’ relationship with Prentiss. At a 12-step meeting, Jackie butts heads with an outspoken Southern woman named Antoinette. When a cocaine addict has a seizure at the meeting, Jackie and Antoinette end up riding in the ambulance back to All Saints together. Jackie rushes the man in to be treated by Dr. Roman. When Dr. Roman calls ‘clear’ and uses the defibrillator paddles, Jackie, off her game because she’s high, still has her hand on the patient. She’s knocked out cold. When Jackie comes to, she has a chance to get Dr. Roman fired, but instead admits it was her own mistake. Jackie then lies to the family of the now-deceased cocaine addict, saying he was not using drugs. Jackie connects with Antoinette and the women hit it off, so much so that Jackie accepts Antoinette’s offer to be her sponsor. The next morning, Jackie goes to the gym only to find out the Towel Girl has been fired for dealing. Jackie’s lost her source.
