  • Privacy Protection: Another Great Episode

    In the last few episodes, we have seen Jackie's seemingly double life, where she is playing around with the pharmacist at work who is the hook to her pain killer addiction for her "back pain" and her life as a wife and mother of two. We've learned that it has been a year that she has been playing second life and in this episode some of it crosses over.

    This episode has some pretty comical dark humor in it, which really makes this show great. Acalitus' baby that she found looks pretty much EXACTLY like the actress, mostly in the eyes.. which is what this episode is named after... coincidence? Probably not.

    I like that this episode is getting into the cross over of her life, the pill innards accidentally falling on her daughters donut. Her secret daughter gets out when Cooper tries to get mad at her for riding him about not answering his pager which leaves some foreshadowing for the last episodes. Eddie finding out also adds to the drama between him and Jackie. Zoe also walking in on Jackie completed the set of characters coming close to finding out a little more than Jackie wants everyone to know about her private life.

    Best line from the episode "Flashlight tag, you're it"!
