We certainly know Joe MacMillan from “Halt and Catch Fire” to be a schemer, so the following question is a fair one: Is it possible that he could have really orchestrated his entire MacMillan Utility plan to end up working with Gordon Clark again down the line?
In the preview below for next week’s new episode “The Threshold,” we do see Ryan Ray ask Joe this question after losing his decision-making power, and in turn being locked into a place presumably where he would be left to do nothing for the next four years. In admitting in the deposition that he stole Gordon’s ideas, this could change things. How much so? That’s a little bit of a mystery still, but you have to think that it is a factor.
Elsewhere, you can prepare to see some tension abound in a few other different ways. For Donna and Cameron, for example, we’re going to get the sense that the former is particularly upset about Cameron getting married so quickly to Tom without really telling anyone. As a matter of fact, it is a reason for her to chide at her at the whole “impulsive” label that is being flung her way.
Mutiny is going to need to make some big decisions over the next few weeks, especially for us as viewers to have a satisfying end. There are only four episodes left, and we’re entering them with the same philosophy we’ve had with this show for some time: We’re not expecting more on the other side. If we get a renewal, it’ll be a cause for celebration.
