‘Industry’ Season 2 Finale Summary Episode 8 — [Spoiler] fired

Until then it was only a matter of time an insider trading storyline hit IndustryPierpoint & Co.

In the season two finale of HBO’s angst-ridden financial drama, the pressure to keep bigwig Jesse Bloom’s business eventually led Harper to cross a very illegal line. While she struggled to avoid Bloom’s own business, some important conversations with Celeste and her father shook Yasmin’s world to the core. Oh, and as the season wound down there were a couple of layoffs, one of which was a total stunner. Read on for a full synopsis of Jerusalem.

When the finale begins, Harper, Eric, Rishi, and Danny find themselves in a pitch meeting, but when the company says it wants to return to New York, Harper refuses to return. (To be fair, Eric doesn’t seem too crazy about it either). Guess it’s back to the drawing board for this sneaky little opportunistic team.

Yasmin tells Celeste that they don’t think they should represent men like their father. Her boss admits three of her boys were in Jeffrey Epstein’s confiscated black book, so her ethical compass is clearly a bit shaky. She sort of tells Yas to stop thinking she can change things. If it wants to be successful, it has to operate within the system as it is. Celeste also says that Yasmin’s father attacked her a while ago, and when Yasmin confronts her about it later, he continues to be the absolute slimeball that he is.

Harper asks Gus what he knows about the NHS contacts. Jesse bets against FastAid. He’s small and she needs to give him every advantage she can. Gus doesn’t say much, but his silence speaks volumes. She deduces that Gus’ boss is ruining Amazon’s ventures with FastAid. But she wonders: Is Aurore involved with Rican? How can Amazon buy FastAid without complaining? Gus is frustrated and walks out of the conversation.

Industry finale season 2Harper apologizes to Jesse for shorting out and tells him to get out. She asks – hypothetically, of course – what would happen if the government dropped any anti-competitive investigation into Amazon’s acquisition of FastAid. So, hypothetically, she advises him to get out. Jesse knows that Harper gathered information from Gus (since he knows Gus works for Aurore Adekunle), but he doesn’t seem upset. He gives her a long hug, notices that she is not wearing wire and asks her to leave.

Harper tells Eric she thinks Bloom isn’t there, which takes the wind out of their sails. While speaking on TV on CNN, Jesse texts Harper (live on air!): “Find all the remaining Rican stocks on the open market and buy them NOW.” She runs to her desk and tells Rishi he has should let happen. Jesse then says he’s glad England still takes the competition rules seriously and that officials will root out government corruption and nepotism. Bloom is now making money on both sides of the trade, ditching the FastAid acquisition and making Rican the likely home for the NHS contracts. “It’s almost like he planned it,” says a suspicious Danny.

And that’s when Harper knows she’s screwed. She explains to Eric that she told him the competition investigation was off the books. Since this knowledge was confidential and privileged, it is insider trading. “I think you led him to the water and he drank,” he says. Eric asks her to look him in the eye and tell him she didn’t do it now. She does, but was she convincing enough? (It’s Harper, after all, so who knows?)

Aurore now knows exactly where the leak came from, and it seems to have been her plan all along. But while she ponders a possible promotion, poor Gus is outside. He calls the move callous, but she sees it as pragmatic. He comes to the conclusion that politics might not be for him after all.

Industry finale season 2 Eric introduces Bill Adler to a new super team and calls it MHFS – Macro Hedge Fund Sales. Eric and Harper then sell Rishi and Danny, saying they are SO CLOSE to going to a Japanese competitor. “Punish her. Cut her off,” says Harper, while selling her own “loyalty” by sneaking her friends around. Eric and Harper also bring up the sexual assault committed by Nicole, using all this drama as leverage. “You two are very special,” says Adler, that they are.

When Yas Celeste tells Celeste they won’t work with her father anymore, her boss doesn’t mind. “Without your father, your place is costing me money. He’s your value to me,” says Celeste. Yas seems to be at a crossroads: she’s never bothered to open her own bank account, so all her money goes into her father’s accounts. She could be unemployed, the locks on her doors have been changed and he locked her out of the account. She goes to Robert and asks the recovering addict to get her some coke, which he does. But when he’s stopped, the small bag of powder falls to the ground right in front of a police officer, who then threatens it’s enough for Robert to lose his job. Although he was taken out of the drunken tank by Nicole, it remains to be seen whether his arrest will affect his job.

Adler eventually accepts Eric and Harper on their offer. They can stay at the pier point but Rishi and Danny will be kicked out. But not before Harper and Rishi get hot and violent in a toilet stall… the night before the guy’s anniversary!

When Harper enters the office one morning, she sees Danny struggling to get into the building. His access card is repeatedly denied. But Rishi is still there because Eric found the number of staff. Following him into his office, she is surprised to find a man from Human Resources there. “It can’t be about Jesse, I didn’t know…” she whispers. The man asks her to sit down and tells her that the company found out that her protocol was fake. “There is only one course of action in this scenario,” he says. She turns to Eric wide-eyed just as he says he has to let her go. “You’re fired, Harper.”

Surprised that Harper’s past has caught up with her? Does she deserve to be canned? Vote in our polls, then fire in the comments.
