‘Nurse Jackie’ Season 3, Episode 4 Recap: ‘Mitten’

The fourth episode of Nurse Jackie brings rebuilding of relationships, budding romance and more obsession with the First Lady.

Jackie and O’Hara are working on their relationship.  O’Hara informs Jackie over lunch that Akalitus has offered her the title of Chief of the ER.  O’Hara also assures Jackie that she’s not resigning from All Saints to get away from Jackie.

Akalitus is on a rampage because another hospital already started a childhood obesity campaign.  She is determined that All Saints be at the top of the list when it comes to a visit from Michelle Obama, so she starts a fund-raising campaign of her own.

Dr. Coop is not too happy when he finds out about O’Hara’s new title.  He tells Akalitus he wants to throw his hat in the ring as well.  Akalitus tells Coop he can do that by working some overtime for once, but little does Coop know, he has no chance of getting the chief title.

Kevin invites Eddie over for a barbecue, so he gives Jackie a ride to her house after work.  Jackie finds Kevin has taken some old boxes to the parish.  Jackie insists she has to go to the parish to get one of the boxes back because she thinks it contains the girls’ baptismal gowns; however, this is just a ruse.  One of the mittens with the clothes given away contains a stash of Jackie’s drugs.

There’s romance in the air during this episode of Nurse Jackie, as Eddie and Tunie hit it off at the barbecue.  Since Jackie’s too concerned about getting her drugs back during Episode 4, fans will have to wait until next week to see just how Jackie feels about this budding romance or what she’ll do to sabotage it.

Nurse Jackie airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. EST on Showtime.
