Peggy Accidentally Stabs Abe in the Belly
Episode Nine, "The Better Half"
Tensions are flaring up not just in the streets during the summer of 1968, but in the Olson-Drexler household as well. After Abe is stabbed in the arm getting off the subway – and refuses to rat out the kids who did it to the cops – Peggy's not feeling so safe in her new lovers' pad. So when she hears screaming and glass breaking outside her own window one night, she's got a crudely fashioned spear (a kitchen knife strapped to a broomstick) at the ready. Except her victim ends up being her own boyfriend as her reflexes are quicker than her eyes. But all Peggy's unintentional violence did was bring on the inevitable: In the ambulance, radical journalist Abe breaks up with his borderline Establishment girlfriend, saying her 'activities are offensive to my every waking moment. You'll always be the enemy."
