Coop gets the crushing news that his sperm count is too low to allow him to donate. Carrie gets a lucky break, which leads to a medical segment on the local news. Akalitus is on a winning streak, too, with her poker habit starting to pay off. Jackie, however, gets blindsided when Grace - who's been arrested for shoplifting - drops a bomb.
Nurse Jackie is a half-hour dark comedy that is at turns wicked, heartbreaking and funny. Edie Falco stars as the title character Jackie O'Hurley, a strong-willed and brilliant - but very flawed - emergency room nurse in a complicated New York City hospital. A lapsed Catholic with an occasional weakness for Vicodin and Adderall to get her through the days, Jackie keeps the hospital balanced with her own kind of justice. Every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions.
