I've remarked upon it earlier in this stellar season 5 of Nurse Jackie but it bears repeating: Edie Falco as Jackie has smiled more, halfway through season 5 than she did during the entirety of seasons 1-4. I don't care if this sounds like fangirl gushing--she is so pretty when her face lights up. Beyond the surface happiness, there is plenty going on in Jackie's life--being in recovery is a key part of her life but so (still) are her kids, her job and the small circle of friends she has (all at work). She's divorced Kevin and she's dating a cop who genuinely likes her--a lot--and who is the reason for all the smiling. Will this match stick? Tune in to find out, Nurse Jackie fans!

Zoey hears Coop and Carrie having sex. Jackie worries about Frank.
NURSE JACKIE 507 Episode Description – “Teachable Moments” Akalitus forgets to hire an escort for a psych patient who ends up laying waste to the pharmacy. Eddie and Jackie, who have reached their limits with Akalitus’s forgetfulness, use this as an opportunity to run her blood. Zoey points out Prentiss’s terrible bedside manner, both with patients and other hospital staff. While transcribing dictation, Zoey hears Coop and Carrie having sex, unaware the machine was recording.
I think you are going to have a reaction anywhere from pleasantly surprised to shocked out of the comfort of your chair, at how incredible actors Merrit Wever and Morris Chestnut are in this scene (be sure to tune in Sunday night and watch it in its entirety).
