After the confrontation with Eddie at the end of season one, it's now a few months later and Jackie is on the beach with her family. She's cut ties with Eddie and is determined to dive back in and spend more time with her family. Back at All Saints, Jackie deflects blame about the narcotic shortage. She refuses Dr. O'Hara's offers of financial help and endures Sam, the altered nurse and his newfound sobriety. A thwarted Dr. Cooper lodges an official complaint against Jackie with Mrs. Akalitus, as she fights a deaf woman's insurance company to cover her hand injury. Eddie overdoses and is brought into All Saints just so he can get Jackie's attention.
