Episode summary[]

This second episode of a three-part story arc (which came about when Carroll O'Connor briefly walked away from All in the Family over a salary dispute) finds the Bunker family deep in worry over the fact that Archie has been missing for 24 hours. At first, Edith thinks that Archie might have been in an accident but mounting evidence suggests that Archie has actually run off with another woman. The truth of the matter is not revealed until the very end of the episode.
