Halt and Catch Fire S2E6 - "10Broad36" Review

After a full season of Joe MacMillan raising hell while Cameron, Gordon, and Donna were left to follow in the waves of destruction he wreaked, who'd have thought that he'd have risen to become the most sympathetic character? Perhaps it's due in large part to Lee Pace's tremendous acting abilities, but with Cameron and Donna scheming to dupe Joe while Gordon's off having an affair in the woods, somehow the morally grey of the characters has widened in scope. Joe truly seems to be working his hardest to prove that he's of upstanding character, to his girlfriend, his future father-in-law, and perhaps even to himself. Gordon's never been the most sympathetic character but his pathetic moping in the woods lamenting how he hasn't shared his ailing health with Donna just didn't pack the type of emotional punch we needed to be able to be understanding of his choice to cheat on her. But with Donna hiding her pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage from him, perhaps they really are a good match for each other. Cameron tries to use Joe's past sins as a means of justifying her attempts to scam him but in the end, Joe is the one that comes out of the scuffle looking bright and shiny as ever, with a planned proposal to his boss that they acquire Mutiny. Looks like this group will be spending more time in closer proximity to each other than we've seen all season and that's bound to make for some juicy plot developments.

Halt and Catch Fire airs on Sundays on AMC at 10PM.
