Storyline

After Ted makes what may be his most libelous on-air gaffe ever, Lou's reaction is to assault Ted physically by throwing him through the studio doors. Lou thinks nothing of his act as he sees it as something he needed to do to get his anger for Ted out of his system. Even Mary's railings against him don't make Lou change his mind about his action. It isn't until Ted has a resulting neck injury that Lou starts to feel remorseful. Ted starts to take advantage of Lou's feelings of guilt by asking for more and more, including sharing Lou's office with him and having a new editorial spot at the end of the newscast. What Ted is doing ends up also affecting Mary and Murray negatively. Lou may only be able to take so much of what Ted is doing, but whether Lou will resort to physical violence is the question.
