NURSE JACKIE 505 – “Good Thing” Episode Details
Jackie continues to be pulled in opposite directions of the emotional spectrum. On the one hand, a nice, stable, funny guy is interested in her and they have begun to date. At the same time, Jackie's eldest daughter Grace, is acting out; she's lying and dating an age-inappropriate guy and in general, has a surly attitude. Even little Fiona is misbehaving enough that her school master has a conference with Jackie and Kevin. Then there's the issue of custody with Kevin and most profoundly, Jackie's tenuous sobriety. How much pressure can Jackie handle as she navigates her first year sober--without any kind of outside support? It's a question that will remain open until there's an answer.
Jackie starts her day telling Grace she’s not allowed to go to a school dance with her boyfriend. Jackie is nervous about her date with Frank later that night. Zoey and Thor decide they’ll help her get ready.
A dancer comes in with a hurt knee. Prentiss diagnoses it as a sprain and discharges him but Akalitus and Coop catch his spiral fracture just as he’s about to leave.
Prentiss and Zoey work in perfect harmony on a pregnant gunshot victim who collapses in the waiting room. Later that night, Jackie and Frank skip the fancy restaurant in favor of a pub. It’s a great date with a good guy. All is going well until Jackie’s phone rings: It’s Mike Cruz, urging her to lose the date.
She follows Cruz to his apartment and he confronts her about calling Charlie’s phone. He falls apart talking about Charlie. A moment of shared grief turns into connection and need and they have sex.
At the same time, Grace and her friends sneak out to the dance and a surprise police raid separates Grace from Danny and all of her friends. Alone on the streets of New York, Grace frantically tries calling Jackie but all of her calls go to voicemail. Back at Cruz’s apartment, Jackie notices her missed calls and rushes out to pick up Grace.
