Mercy Street (2017): S02E05 – Unknown Soldier


Mercy Street is an American period medical drama television series created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel.


A badly wounded, unidentified man, believed to be a soldier from the Battle of Chantilly, is cared for at Mansion House. Byron’s deception regarding his credit of Samuel as a doctor on the autopsy is revealed, but Jed takes the blame for it in a plan to get Samuel into medical school. McBurney’s tyranny reaches new levels as he closes Charlotte’s school, berates Anne for the death of a patient, and orders Byron (who has passed his exam) transferred to California, and Anne and Byron join forces to oust him. Matron Brennan is notified that her son was killed while trying to desert. Hopkins, ashamed at having broken his vow to God, remains cold and distant with Emma. The Green family begins to unravel under the weight of Pinkerton’s investigation and numerous secrets that are brought to light in a tense moment in the Green household, and Emma decides to leave home and board at Mansion House permanently. Jed and Lisette’s relationship almost rekindles, but Lisette decides to move on and tells Jed to be good to Mary, the woman he loves. The “unknown soldier” turns out to not be a soldier at all, but rather a Quaker injured while bringing water to wounded soldiers.
