This past weekend, Halt and Catch Fire stars Lee Pace (Joe MacMillan), Mackenzie Davis (Cameron Howe), Scoot McNairy (Gordon Clark) and Kerry Bishé (Donna Clark) gathered with Showrunner Jonathan Lisco at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California to participate in AMC’s panel at the 2015 Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour. Lisco and the cast took a look back at Season 1, and also discussed what’s to come in Season 2, particularly when it comes to the show’s female leads, Cameron and Donna, and their new venture, Mutiny, where Cameron declared there will be no bosses. “Well, what happens when big decisions actually need to be made? When there’s a ticking clock on business decisions?” asked Lisco. In the Season 1 Finale, Cameron declared “We’re the future and there’s nothing scarier than that,” and actress Mackenzie Davis has embraced her character’s philosophy, telling the panel that Cameron is “this prescient character that was seeing where things were going before anyone else could even catch their breath.”
Lisco also teased Donna’s relationship with her husband Gordon and assured the panel that she’s no mere “wet blanket wife.” “Last season… the Gordon and Donna relationship was about Donna… holding the string of Gordon’s kite, but Gordon was the kite. Well, this year we’re hoping that there will be two kites, and we’re hoping that you’re going to really tune in to see how that dynamic works.” Bishé agrees, noting “We kind of set her up in the pilot episode and at the beginning to seem a little bit like that. And then there are some really good surprises, even just in the first episode, where you realize that maybe you’re dealing with something a little bit different.”
