Jackie is trying hard to make amends. She fixes her family a waffle breakfast and makes Kevin chicken sandwiches from last night’s leftovers to bring to work. But there is a new wrinkle, which has nothing to do with Jackie’s recent transgressions. It seems that Tunie, Kevin’s sister, has used her key to sneak into the house during the night. She crashed with the girls, who are thrilled by their interesting, exciting aunt’s presence. Tunie’s pilot boyfriend broke up with her via text message. After getting “shit-faced”, she decided to take advantage of the hearth, home, and food of her brother’s family. According to Grace, it’s not the first time Tunie has made herself at home while the rest of the household was asleep. But, as Grace reveals, Tunie usually leaves before morning.
Tunie makes an attempt to “play” Jackie by telling her she’s not happy about Kevin and that “snotty British doctor’s intervention", and that it was “just rude”. She offers to stay a few days to calm Kevin down.
On the way to work, Jackie confides in Eddie how she thinks Kevin has invited Tunie over to monitor her in the wake of the intervention. But Tunie seems too much of a burn out, a free spirit who is more concerned with her own comforts than the issues her brother is having with his wife. It remains to be seen if Jackie’s suspicions turn out to be right.
Jackie has kept her lie alive by telling Kevin she put in a good word for Eddie at work and that he’s got a shot at the pharmacist job. As Eddie and Jackie talk about how weird their relationship is, God strolls into view behind them, steals a street piano and pushes it into the ambulance bay of the hospital.
The cases at All Saints this week include an Orthodox Jew who wants his critically injured wife moved to Beth Israel against her family’s wishes, even though the move would be life threatening. Then there are the two street meat vendors brought in after a brutal turf war. It’s a tough day but Jackie stills find time to make a stop in the restroom for her fix.
Akalitus receives an unwanted visit from a bureaucrat from the Catholic church who has been assigned to de-consecrate All Saints’ chapel and relocate all its statues to a Staten Island storage facility. He tells her the chapel should have been de-consecrated in 1978 and that she should be thankful she’s had the statues for as long as she did. Akalitus does not warm to this fact and puts her foot down when the bureaucrat attempts to also remove those status outside the walls of the chapel. Well played, Akalitus.
