All good things come to an end they say. Well, this is the end of the line for Nurse Jackie. I am sad that I will no longer be able to see the wonderfully talented Edie Falco portray this complex and yet likeable character every week. Yes, some of the situations she has been in over the years have been a little too much, but for the most part, Jackie is one of the more human characters on television today. Jackie is a great nurse but sometimes an awful person. She has flaws, some crazy big ones, though you know at the end of the day her heart is mostly in right place.
Throughout the series Jackie has had her demons to fight with the biggest of her problems being her battle with drugs. Part of her problem continues to be her denial that she has a problem. Most of the disgusting things she has done to others is in her effort to hide her addiction or gain access to drugs. At the end of the day, Jackie wants to be a nurse. Her boss Gloria (played by Anna Deavere Smith) is not as convinced.
Besides the usual array of characters you’ve become used to in the series the marvellously quirky Tony Shaloub has been added to the cast for the final season. He is a doctor that has a number of ex-wives and a memory problem to deal with.
Congratulations on those behind the series as this the final series provides fans with a fitting closing to it.
