Nurse Jackie (Showtime)

Premieres: Monday, March 28 at 10/9c Where We Left Off: In the second-season finale, all of Jackie's lies came crashing down.

What's Next: Don't expect dramatic fallout. Jackie's been pushed into one heck of a corner, but if we know one thing about Jackie, it's that she can juggle. And she's one hell of a liar. Look for the bromance between Eddie and Kevin to continue to complicate her life.
