"Nurse Jackie" is a half-hour 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.
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.
Jackie steals Dr. Roman's DEA number. Coop is recruited by a 'sperm scout.'

Jackie's back to using again, but she's doing it differently this time: maintaining a clean and sober cover, going to 12-step meetings - even finding herself a sponsor - all the while getting her drugs from the towel girl at the gym. Meanwhile at All Saints, Zoey finds out that everyone knows about her 'secret' relationship with Prentiss. Season premiere.
