Episode Summary


Joe suffers a stroke which renders him invalid. Rose tries to take care of him but he prefers Michelle, his secretary and former lover. In a flashback, Joe is shown allowing a lobotomy done on their daughter Rosemary who is severely learning-impaired. The procedure leaves Rosemary catatonic all her life. To punish Joe, Rose finally fires Michelle after twenty years. Meanwhile, Jackie continues to use amphetamines. JFK, on the other hand, is forced to intervene in the squabbles that resulted from the desegregation in the South force.
