There is open but unspoken tension between Donna and Cameron as Cameron lets Donna know using cryptic language but clear in its message that she knows Donna lied to her about Doug and Craig. That tension is increased when Diane lets them know that there is a lucrative offer to buy Mutiny, which also means another option is to go public. In deciding what to do about the sale but needing time away from each other, Donna decides to take Diane up on her offer to use her personal retreat as a weekend getaway by herself, while Cameron remains at home with Gordon and the girls. What Donna anticipates as time alone to clear her mind doesn't quite end up that way, with a specific incident only confirming what she already feels about her role in the partnership with Cameron. At home, Gordon and Cameron end up bonding over Super Mario Bros.

and - bang -- HACF gets its groove back
4 November 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Was a big fan of this show in Season 1 but noticed through Season 2 that the writers were conflicted. Was this more a docu-drama trying to recreate the magic of the dot.com era or was this a soap? Followed the chat groups and noticed viewers having the same doubt. By season 3 the writers had seemed to favor the soap angle and I stuck it out mainly because (like most hard core fans) I felt connected to the characters. And now just past the half way point in the third season the production team gets their groove back --- suddenly I am seeing great writing, great performances, and somehow both arcs -- the computers and the characters == are moving forward. Best episode in a long time! Powerful and in many ways unforgettable.
