David loses control because he cannot handle negative comments or reactions to the Wave. When he asks Laurie to stop writing derogatory articles about the Wave, she refuses. The two engage is a loud verbal argument, which ends when David throws her to the ground. This physical aggression is a sign of potential violence.
