"Comfort Food"
After the confrontation with Eddie at the end of season one, it's 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 narcotic shortage. She refuses O'Hara's offers of financial help and endures Sam, the altered nurse's newfound sobriety. A thwarted Coop lodges an official complaint against Jackie with 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 again.
