Final Episode Health Care and Cinema
24 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having been a faithful viewer of Nurse Jackie in its first season, I feel like celebrating this finale--in my mind the most successful episode yet. All the characters have become beautifully real by now, their inter-relationships are working together in a lively and compelling dynamic ("It takes a village!") and the plot details were handled like a virtuoso symphony, with main themes and subplots building with distinct notes of comedy, tragedy, sympathy, cynicism and riotous horrific humor, to a masterful blend, culminating with Jackie on the floor, sharing the moment with us: "Did you see that?"

I love these people and can't wait until they come back to us. A hospital, especially an emergency room, is a wonderful metaphor for life with something for everyone, and the very best works of art have you laughing and crying at the same time. Nurse Jackie can do that.
