'Nurse Jackie' Season 3, Episode 1 (Season Premiere) Recap

['Nurse Jackie' - 'Game On']
The Season 3 premiere of 'Nurse Jackie' opened on the other side of Kevin and O'Hara's poorly planned intervention, with Jackie locked in her personal drug haven: A bathroom.
Staring into the family medicine cabinet mirror, her mind racing, she began a frantic search for pills, and then proof that the charges on her secret credit card bill weren't for drugs, but toiletries.
Who told you you're allowed to rain on Jackie Peyton's parade? The Barbra Streisand tune perfectly matched our heroine's mounting adrenaline and agitation.
While the rest of the episode didn't live up to such a satisfying opening scene (or the wry punch of the last one), the writers and director Steve Buscemi gave us plenty of bright spots.
