In Season 5, why does Nurse Jackie keep calling Charlie?

Charlie died of a drug overdose in the final episode of Season 4, so this doesn't make any sense to me.

I was trying to figure out the same thing. Maybe it is a sort of "therapy" for her. The only explanation is that his father didn't close Charlie's phone account; therefore, she is still able to call Charlie. Charlie definitely died last season.

Also, in a later episode in Season 5, you can see Charlie's father listening to Jackie's voice mail messages. This leads to Charlie's father and Jackie having sex. – Markus Klein Mar 7 '14 at 10:09

Because Jackie is not ready and able to deal with AA and having a real sponsor, so instead she calls the now deceased Charlie. It's her form of therapeutic release.
