‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Season 2, Episode 5: ‘Infiltrator’


Halt and Catch Fire season 2, episode 5 airs Sunday on AMC.

Cameron and Joe cross paths again, putting Cameron in a tailspin. Meanwhile, Gordon searches for connection as he processes difficult news.

 Halt and Catch Fire is set roughly one year after IBM and all but corners the market with the release of its first major product—the IBM PC. In this fictional drama, a former IBM executive, Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), plans to reverse engineer the flagship product of his former employer and forces his current company, Cardiff Electric, into the personal computer race. MacMillan enlists the help of Gordon Clark (Scoot McNairy), a great engineer whose unrealized dreams of creating a revolutionary product have created tension in his marriage to Donna (Kerry Bishé), and Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis), a volatile prodigy who puts her future in jeopardy to join MacMillan’s rogue PC project. Halt and Catch Fire thrives on the spirit of innovation and explores what it’s like to stand at the forefront of something world-changing and work toward it, no matter the risk.

Halt and Catch Fire season 2, episode 5 airs June 28 at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC.
