The Knick 2×05 “Whiplash” – A subway explosion leads to an influx of patients at The Knick, but little margin for profit. Pursued by Henry (Charles Aitken), Lucy takes to heart advice from one of Ping Wu’s girls. An addict’s misfortune gives Thackery an ideal test case for his latest theory on addiction. Bertie submits his adrenalin research to Zinberg (Michael Nathanson); Cornelia gets a new clue in Speight’s death; Barrow repays a debt but gets no credit; Genevieve (Arielle Goldman) charms the Chickerings; Harriet finds herself a boarding-house pariah. Written by Steven Katz; directed by Steven Soderbergh.
