From: Michael Andre-Driussi 
Subject: (urth) PEACE: Olivia's love-quadrangle

Just to hammer it all out and down:

Olivia: had sexual relations with Peacock before her marriage, and had
relations with Macafee after her marriage.  She is unhappy, and the source
might be as mundane as finding herself no longer in the courtship limelight
-- feeling unfit to be a wife

Smart: married to Olivia, unsettled by her activities with Peacock and Macafee.

Macafee: happy.

Peacock: Smart's old friend, Olivia's spurned lover, he is presumably
murderously jealous of Olivia's trysts with Macafee.  Maybe he would rather
kill Olivia than Macafee because he doesn't think Olivia would visit him if
Macafee were eliminated; or maybe it is cloaked in Peacock's mind as
outrage for his friend Smart that Smart's wife is cheating on him.
