This season also follows one of HBO’s favorite actors: Jay Duplass, who plays a hedge fund manager named Jesse Bloom.
How did Industry Season 1 End?
The last episode of IndustryThe first season revolved around whether Robert, Gus, Yasmin and Harper would get permanent jobs at Pierpoint. They all had good reasons to stay and even better reasons to be let go. Robert had yet to run a business on his own, but proved he was a customer favorite. Gus consistently battled Pierpoint’s toxic culture and purposely ruined his last interview, rendering him temporarily impenetrable and a target placed on his back. Yasmin used her boss’s sexual advances to blackmail him. As for Harper… she’s Harper. She was the only Pierpoint graduate who managed to do business on her own, but she also tried to blackmail a boss for assault, making more enemies than friends along the way.
Then there was the Eric of everything. Under pressure from manager Daria (Freya Mavor), Harper came forward and admitted that Eric was verbally abusive and that he once locked her in his office. Daria and Yasmin wanted to use this accusation to piss off Eric and change the culture of Pierpoint for something less scary. But when Harper realized that Daria only saw her as a victim, she changed her tone.
Industry Season 1 ended with Harper, Yasmin, and Robert all getting full-time jobs. Gus mic fell off and left. As for Eric, he was able to stay thanks to a boost from Harper, and Daria ended up being the one who got fired for creating an abusive work environment. Just know that when it comes down to it, Harper will always choose power over morality.
