This show really reinvents itself every year; it is wildly different and yet the characters stay true to who they are. Eddie Falco really does own this role and she's great in it, but I like the setup this season.
Something is obviously wrong with Alkalitis, but who knows what it is yet.. dimensia? But I also like the terrible doctor who gets by on her looks...

I've grown to enjoy the show more and more every year that it's run. Zoe stealing into the closet to get a new vase was such a lovely, funny, throwaway joke.

What did I miss?

Last season Jackie was fired and walked out of the hospitol that she worked in - and now back?

Did I miss an ep where the explain things or are we supposed to assume that things just worked out?

And I thought the kid died? Jackie was on the phone with him in the closet or was she calling his old number just to talk to "him"?

The kid did die. He's still dead. She wasn't talking to him, she was just looking at the photo.
At the end of last season the "new" head of the ER, after his sons death went off the deep end and Alkalitis said she'd change things.
This season, at the beginning, we find out he moved on and she was offered her old position back, and hired back Jackie.

Did you miss the season premiere two weeks ago? It explained how Jackie got her job back.

Jackie called the kids phone to talk to his answering service.
