It had been so long since my favorite doctors and nurses of All Saints were on my TV, that I legitimately forgot how much I love Nurse Jackie. Seriously. The premiere picks up after Dr. O’Hara and Kevin’s intervention for Jackie, and she doesn’t exactly take it too well. Jackie naturally convinces them that it’s all in their head (the tricks of an addict, huh?) but this intervention takes a real toll on her relationship with both of them. It will take a while for Jackie and O’Hara to resume their daily snarkfest lunches, and that makes me sad. But the premiere is so phenomenal, that it completely makes up for any friendship sadness. And of course, Zoey is back in all her sassy glory, still dating Lenny and navigating the (less) new halls of All Saints. This episode also addresses the fact that other hospitals are shutting down and the staff at All Saints must step up their game.
