For the first time since season one of the series, there's a sense of uncertainty about what's going to happen to Jackie.

We're closing in on the point when Edie Falco will be known as much for playing Nurse Jackie as she is for playing Carmela Soprano.

Cranky, caustic Nurse Jackie is also the funniest series on Showtime.

The season four premiere shook up everyone's worlds, not just Jackie's, instantly re-energizing a show that had grown rather stagnant.

Regardless of how it turns out, the writers/creators of Nurse Jackie should be applauded for stepping outside of their comfort zone.
