NURSE JACKIE Mon­day, 10.30pm, Eleven

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

AF­TER an event-filled sea­son four, sea­son five re­turns this week show­ing plenty of prom­ise and ex­cite­ment.

It’s the day be­fore Jackie’s birth­day and af­ter what has been a rough ride for the nurse – go­ing to re­hab, mar­riage break­down and her fight for cus­tody of her kids – this is a birth­day of par­tic­u­lar im­por­tance. She wants to spend the day with her chil­dren but it’s up to Kevin to give her ac­cess and he’s ig­nor­ing her.

Work isn’t go­ing any bet­ter ei­ther. A bus has over­turned on to a Bent­ley with a star foot­baller in­side. While the foot­baller is fine he presents an in­ter­est­ing prob­lem for Jackie that may see her ef­forts to stay clean come un­done.

And just as Jackie is at her most vul­ner­a­ble, O’Hara drops a bomb­shell that may just push her over the edge.

Mean­while, two new doc­tors have joined the staff and they’re each mak­ing their mark but for dif­fer­ent rea­sons.

And Ed­die vis­its the hos­pi­tal and gets more than he ex­pected. This en­gag­ing episode demon­strates why this show has be­come so crit­i­cally and pub­licly ac­claimed.
