Mercy Street is an American period medical drama television series created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel.
Samuel is smitten with Aurelia Johnson, a contraband slave, but she is abused by the despotic hospital steward Silas Bullen, who “promises” to find her family for his own sexual needs. He also gets into an argument with Mary about the treatment of the patients. Emma is accepted as a volunteer nurse, and her little sister Alice learns that her beau Tom is a patient, yet in a desolate psychological state. Anne, once the most efficient nurse, feels threatened in her position by Mary and resorts to drinking. She plots against Mary with her lover Dr. Hale. Confederate slave hunters search for contraband slaves even though they are free in Alexandria, and Jimmy convinces his father to turn a blind eye on them to avoid trouble.
