This article is a preview for Industry season 2, episode 6, and may contain spoilers for previous episodes.
Industry is, essentially, HBO’s halfway point between Succession and Euphoria — a workplace drama about deplorable people in a cutthroat business who also happen to be drug-addled sex-mad sociopaths. It was a weird release in 2020, dumped in bulk onto both HBO Max in America and BBC iPlayer in the UK, but it obviously did well enough to justify a second season that, it seems, will follow a more traditional weekly release cadence.
Industry season 2, episode 5 recap
The second season continued with “Kitchen Season” and explored how very similar familial traumas unite Yas, Harper, and Robert. Here’s what happened, in summary:
- Harper, Yas, and Jackie all went to stay in Yas’s Berlin home-away-from-home to smooth the transition of Yas’s high-power client Anna since Yas is transferring upstairs to Celeste’s department. While there, Yas confirmed that her father had a long-running affair with the beloved family nanny.
- Harper found her brother in Berlin, who she hasn’t spoken to in years, and discovered he was a recovering crystal meth addict driven to self-loathing and rebelliousness because of their mother and all the traits that make Harper so valuable to Pierpoint.
- Robert tried to wield his success over his working-class father but ended up relapsing himself, although admittedly found professional success at his lowest personal ebb.
Industry season 2, episode 6 release date
The latest episode will release on Monday, September 5, at 9pm ET on HBO and HBO Max. It’ll be the sixth of eight episodes, airing every Monday between now and September 19.
Where to watch Industry online
As stated above, Industry is exclusive to HBO and HBO Max, where it can be viewed with a subscription.
IMDb hasn’t provided an official episode title or synopsis this week, so we’re going in blind with our predictions:
- Yas will surely have something to say to her father given recent developments. Her personal annoyance with him is likely to threaten his status as a Pierpoint client, which as far as I can tell is pretty integral to her progress in Celeste’s division.
- Harper’s emotional coldness with DVD and others is likely to cause her personal problems around the office.
- Robert will continue to spiral downwards.
