Jackie's back in the swing of things, having re-hidden her stash of pills in the basement and mended fences with O'Hara. Zoey's working her first double and Jackie worries about her burning out. Lou, an out-of-work salesman, comes into the hospital and wins everyone over. O'Hara accepts the title of ER chief, which sparks a competitive streak in Coop. Kevin invites Eddie to a backyard barbecue to celebrate his new job. When Jackie gets home, she sees empty closets and drawers and panics-did Kevin leave her? She finds out he went to an Al-Anon meeting and the drawers are emptied because of a clothing drive at the school. Jackie asks Kevin to walk to the parish with her; she thinks they mistakenly gave away some sentimental items. She digs through the box of Grace's baby clothes to find what she was looking for-tiny mittens with bags of pills stashed inside.
