Abe gets a surprising new ally in Episode 7 in the plot against Benedict Arnold: Mrs. Arnold.
When Peggy tells Abe she wants to help the rebels’ kidnapping, Abe is shell-shocked.
“He thinks either she’s joking or he’s about to get rumbled himself — that the game is up, in some ways, that the General’s about to spring out from behind the couch and arrest him and kill him,” says Jamie Bell in this new behind-the-scenes video.
When Abe hears that Peggy is all-in to help him, he’s not thinking about kidnapping Benedict Arnold though — he’s planning to use this as a ruse to kill Simcoe.
“He comes up with a very complicated plan to get Arnold out of the house, so he can get Simcoe into the house, and it’s the best place to finally get his revenge,” says Executive Producer Craig Silverstein.
But, everything changes when the American Legion is called to the front lines of the war in Virginia.
“I think the interesting thing about Arnold’s legion being called to war is that’s the lame horse that no on betted on, and for Abe it’s a nightmare because now he’s fighting against his own people,” explains Owain Yeoman, who plays Benedict Arnold.
