This week, special guest Ryan O’Donnell of Area 5 joins me to talk about “Tonya and Nancy,” the fourth episode of Halt and Catch Fire’s fourth and final season. In contrast to the first few episodes of the season, which took their time and focused on the characters and their relationships, we felt this episode was a bit rushed and mechanical, covering a lot of ground plot-wise but with fewer memorable character moments.

Still, we’re hopeful that this episode serves to set up things that will pay off well in later episodes. We also spend a bit of time discussing the visual style of Halt, and engage in a bit of speculation about where the narrative conflicts and complications of the series may be heading.

We’ll be back with new recap podcasts after each episode, so join us again next week as we reluctantly prepare to say goodbye to one of our favorite shows.
