The Most Beautiful Episode
5 October 2017 | by kennybloveSee all my reviews

First I want to thank AMC and the cast and crew that made this show, and this wonderful episode. Without spoiling anything I just want to say that I think this episode is beautiful. For other viewers, if you have watched Halt and Catch Fire from the beginning of the series then you have seen and experienced all of the ups and downs of the relationships of the characters throughout the years. That intimate knowledge really pays off in this episode.
