Episode Two: The Interlopers

Divorced couple Georgina Znaeym and Ulrich Gradwitz hate each other. Both professors of Socio geoeconomics at rival universities, they are both in line for the prestigious Eisenberg Award. They are high-minded and serious but in their spare time they are devotees of the on-line video game 'Carpathian Empire' where they fight most of their battles. When Ulrich delivers a particularly nasty blow to Georgina she reacts accordingly and their fighting spills out into the real world.
