This article is a preview for Industry season 2, episode 8 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 7 recap

Industry proved itself one of the best shows airing right now in an especially bleak episode that challenged the moral fabric of even Pierpoint’s staunchest devotees. Here’s what happened, in summary:

  • Harper, Eric, and Rishi tried to secure themselves new positions at rival firms by using Harper’s relationship with Jesse Bloom as a trump card. This backfired, however.
  • In an effort to get some face time with a client, Venetia interrupted a dinner between Rob and Nicole that was turning sour. She made a good impression on Nicole, and Rob failed to tell her she was in serious jeopardy of an unwanted sexual advance as a result, and lo and behold, Nicole sexually assaulted her.
  • In reporting what happened to Yas, Venetia opens herself up to some absolutely terrible advice which she thankfully ignores, instead reporting the matter to Kenny, who takes her seriously.
  • Eventually, Rob confesses about his sexual relationship with Nicole and reveals that she has a pattern of sexually propositioning her financial managers, beginning with Harper. DVD assumes this is why their relationship didn’t work out, but when he shows weakness to Harper, she ropes him into the scheme she’s cooking up with Rishi and Eric.

Industry season 2, episode 8 release date

The latest episode will release on Monday, September 19, at 9 pm ET on HBO and HBO Max. It’ll be the eighth 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:

  • The big question is obviously whether or not Harper can get Bloom back on side before her big move, which apparently DVD is now going to help facilitate.
  • If Gus can secure something meaningful for Leo, will that open him up to more “rewards” from Bloom? That throwaway line about imagining how well he might have been compensated had his tutoring paid off can’t have been an accident, can it?
  • If the truth comes out about what happened to Venetia, how will that effect Pierpoint? Will Rob be held culpable for not revealing she was in danger? And will Yas be made to answer for her blatant victim-blaming?
