Mary Phinney might be meeting her match, in the next new episode of PBS’ “Mercy Street.”

In this exclusive clip (above), Mary (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is confronted by fellow nurse Anne Hastings (Tara Summers), who’s not exactly happy with the arrival of the new head nurse and isn’t shy about expressing it.

“Mercy Street” focuses on two volunteer nurses on opposing sides of the Civil War — New England abolitionist Phinney and Confederate supporter Emma Green, whose family’s luxury hotel in Alexandria, Virginia, has been converted into the Mansion House Union Army hospital.

Filmed on location in Virginia, the show is the first original American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade. The series joins the final season of “Downton Abbey” on “Masterpiece.”

Electric Entertainment is handling international sales, and will be presenting the series to buyers at NATPE.

Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker of Scott Free are executive producing, along with Lisa Q. Wolfinger and David Zabel.

“Mercy Street” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on PBS.
