    Quick Recap:



    O'hara knows about Jackie's double life

    Zoe is getting to know Jackie on a more personal level when she finds out about her and Eddie

    Eddie is being replaced by a pill machine and knows that Jackie has a kid because Cooper told him about it

    Cooper's nervous disorder and a secret hanging over Jackie caused her to kiss him, leaving them even..

    Jackie also cut off her wedding ring and broke her finger to cover it up just to keep her double life a secret, after making up with O'hara who told her sister about Jackie indirectly...



    So far the show has created a dynamic story and twisted set of characters with dark humor around every corner. For the finale, I'm hoping that the characters get a little bit more developed. I'm looking forward to O'hara and Cooper becoming more intertwined in Jackie's life. Jackie is developing as a strong character and is seemingly becoming frustrated as the pill-o-matix replaces Eddie. Cooper starts to pry into Zoe's every days with Jackie to try to get information about what Jackie likes, even going as far as to ask her if Jackie is seeing anyone. Personally, if I was Cooper I would have stayed with Melissa, the gorgeous young brunette with the "great singing voice" as her mother describes two episodes prior. Let's hope that the finale brings everything together and leaves me looking forward to the second season. And that Zoe grows up a little bit... a lot.moreless

    What i've liked this episode? The Film Critic. Being a Film lover myself everytime they get a film dialogue i just glue myself to screen to hear it and I think it was a plus in this episode.



    Dr O'Hara. Once again she is the higlight of the episode. I'd like to see more of her character develloped.



    Eddie. One episode to the season finale and i want to see how he's going to react, now that he knows that jackie has a family... Dislike : Zoe. She just needs to get better material than being the intern who screws it up. Next season i would to see her mature a little bit. And what's yet to come.



    Cooper. The same as Zoe. In the last episode i've imagined Dr Cooper as the future nemesis of jackie, but now i see a man acting like a child, and that doesn't bring any credibility to a doctor or to a character...



    Overall i've liked the episode, not for jackie itself but what revolves around her. And what is yet to come.moreless

    • Jackie: (about Cooper) I kissed him.
      Dr. O'Hara: Oh, my darling, what a wildly entertaining mess you've made.

    • Jackie: So how did you fall? Bike, stairs?
      Neil Nutterman: I was walking, well, no, I was waiting at the corner of 9th and 2nd, looking at my air book, and I stepped off the curb and misjudged my footing and I just fell.
      Jackie: You were working on your laptop and trying to cross 2nd Avenue at the same time?
      Neil Nutterman: Well, it sounds stupid when you say it, but there's not a scratch on my laptop.

    • Zoey: In your professional opinion, why are cats so underused in the film industry?
      Neil Nutterman: I hate cats.

    • Zoey: Would you like some water?

      Mrs. Akalitus: A fellow bad guy, that's refreshing. Nice to meet you.
