Mercy Street is an American period medical drama television series created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel.
The new hospital chief, the rigid and no-nonsense Major Clayton McBurney, arrives and ingratiates himself with Nurse Hastings, while chiding Jed for not following rules and insisting that Byron take a medical exam. Charlotte confronts Samuel about his lie, and Samuel realises the steamer ticket he purchased for himself could help reunite Caleb with Aurelia. As a quack doctor patrols the hospital “treating” patients with “electromagnetism,” Mary’s typhoid worsens and, after fainting during her meeting with McBurney, she is bedridden. Jed, over McBurney’s and Nurse Hastings’ objections, devotes himself to caring for her and promises not to have her quarantined. Meanwhile, Jimmy is now running the Green family business while James, having not signed the loyalty oath, is demoted to silent partner. Alice seduces a Union soldier in the hope of obtaining passwords and documents needed to help Frank escape Alexandria. When the soldier catches Alice rifling through his belongings, he attacks her, and is then killed by James and Jimmy. McBurney orders that Mary be quarantined, which Nurse Hastings happily enforces.
