    Peggy and Cassie Alone

    Peggy and her daughter Cassie stayed in New York City where she raised Cassie alone until Scott finally was released from jail. Although Scott had promised Peggy to change his ways and be there for their child, Peggy hesitated in giving Scott visitation privileges. The situation became even more difficult when Peggy met and fell in love with Blake Burdick, a New York Police officer.

    A New Life

    After the apparent death of her ex-husband, Peggy and Blake, whom had moved in with her, could not stop Cassie from following in her father's footsteps to become a superhero. This eventually led to Cassie's death at the hands of Doctor Doom, right at the moment that Scott returned from the dead. Some months later, Cassie was revived by a guilt-ridden Doctor Doom. This second chance she had with her daughter caused Peggy and Blake to move to Miami, away from the superhero grace in New York City.
