Jackie detoxes at home with the help of Frank, Eddie, and Antoinette. It is a painful, embarrassing and emotional process for Jackie. In her detox, Jackie dreams that she is back on the floor at All Saints. Here she meets a mysterious patient who will expose Jackie's greatest fear; that her relationship with Grace is not repairable. When Jackie awakens from her dream, the worst of detox is over. She's on the mend when Grace comes home needing comfort after a really bad day at school. Jackie's worst fears for the future of her relationship with her daughter have not come true. Jackie has a second chance with Grace. Due to Jackie's fragile state, Frank raises objections to Grace moving home. Jackie realizes Frank isn't strong enough to be in a relationship with a life-long addict. She locks him out of the house, snorts a line, and tends to her daughter.

Ruined by the ending
5 June 2016 | by louie_arizaSee all my reviews

This would have been a great episode but the ending completely ruined it. After having a dream about all her duties she neglected while an addict and then as soon as she is sober having her daughter opening up to her for the first time in a long time she would not relapse straight away. It felt really unnatural as if it was just used so they could make more seasons although the storyline of helping her daughter and trying to stay sober would have been a great one. Of course addiction is unpredictable but the whole episode sets up the fact that she is willing to fight and how she is glad that she is getting sober again, also with the set up from previous episodes of hearing her daughter's speech about Jackie's addiction, then finding out the she herself has been taking and hiding them really just made the ending even worse and completely ruin what would have otherwise been an episode to start her redeeming arc as a mother.
