    I've only seen the first few eps this season. She's an interesting character that I shouldn't like but find myself rooting for her. She's really a scumbag.

    Perfect ending -- suicide. Bad final season, but excellent ending.

    I don't think that was suicide. It was a pill head trying to get as high as she could.

    Her life was back on track, but like so many times before, it was time to self destruct.

    I thought so at first, but as a veteran nurse, she'd be well aware of what snorting that amount of crack/heroin, whatever that was, would do.

    And it had already been confirmed by Zoe that the hospital was closing even earlier in the day than planned because they were out of all medication -- so Nurse J would have to know that no one could save her if she wasn't planning to do herself in. She might have been an addict, but she was one scheming, sharp cookie.

    Everything was gone -- her best friend, her former friend boss, her protege, her husband, her boyfriend, her children (pretty much), her terminal friend Dr. Prince, even her hospital. That dream sequence in Times Square, showing absolute bliss in the middle of one of the most chaotic, noisy, crowded areas in the world ... then being brought back for a second to the nastiness of reality ... I thought was a glimpse for her of the next life. And she didn't mind going there.

    And she was going to a new job at Bellevue -- the hospital synonymous with the term "psycho ward." I'd think at that point Jackie knew she'd be better off to everyone, including herself, dead.

    That's the way I saw it, but I understand others seeing it differently.

    I'm not 100% sure she died, I think it was ambiguous

    yup

    From the showrunner

    Given your strong opinions about how Dexter should have ended — echoing fans who thought the character perhaps should have died — why go this way with Jackie? Why not make the end more definitive?

    Viewers have such an intimate relationship with this sociopathic drug addict who lied, stole, cheated and was devious and morally messed up yet they kept welcoming her into their homes. They did so because of Edie Falco. The viewer has the privilege to make up their own minds about what happened. They can think, "She got exactly what she deserved," or, "Thank God she made it." In an odd way, it's interactive television.

    It was a cry for help she isn't dead.
