The A/C is on the fritz in this exclusive clip from the next Halt and Catch Fire, “Who Needs a Guy”—and the competition between start-up search engines Comet and Rover is heating up.
With inside information from his ex-wife, Donna, Gordon (Scoot McNairy) argues that Comet should pursue a new strategy, but Joe (Lee Pace) is skeptical: He floats the idea that Gordon and Donna are sleeping together, and that she may be out to sabotage the competition. While he attempts to fix the thermostat on his own, Gordon pokes fun at the idea, jokingly confirming Joe’s suspicion in earshot of his girlfriend, Katie (Anna Chlumsky). Before he blows the fuse, he even gets in a great line about Donna: “She’s not a ninja, Joe.”
Us Donna stans beg to differ.
Here’s the network’s synopsis of “Who Needs a Guy,” written by Lisa Albert and directed by Tricia Brock:
In this episode, Joe (Lee Pace) and Gordon (Scoot McNairy) discuss Comet’s future. Donna (Kerry Bishe) takes a vacation. A new collaborator challenges Cameron (Mackenzie Davis). Bos (Toby Huss) and Diane (Annabeth Gish) make a life-altering choice.
