'Severance' Episode 6: Mark's defiance sees him inch closer to the truth
Mark finally musters the courage and meets with the mystery caller who has information on Lumon Industries
Spoilers for 'Severance' Episode 6 'Hide and Seek'
Apple TV+ returned with a brand new episode of 'Severance' which saw the workers of the Severed floor slowly banding together and exploring what they know about the company.
While Cobel's aim may be to slowly create hostility amongst the departments, the opposite is seen happening due to Burt and Irving's romantic connection, Helly's harsh treatment, and the multiple break room punishments. So read on to know more about an interesting development in the sixth episode of 'Severance'.
Episode 6 begins with Ms Cobel (Patricia Arquette) as Mrs Selvig putting a chain with a key of a sort around her neck for safekeeping as Mr Graner (Michael Cumpsty) calls to deliver some bad news. He confirms that Petey (Yul Vasquez) had been successfully reintegrated and the signature from his chip's data was traced back to one of their people itself. We soon learn that it's a woman called Raggaby and that she cracked reintegration with Graner trying to trace her location.
Later we see Mark Scout (Adam Scott) wandering about with Helly (Britt Lower) which gets him into trouble with Ms Cobel. But he too is losing his patience with the harsh punishments being doled out for no reason. He finally questions her about the nature of his job and wants to know what Lumon is hiding. This invokes a very strong response from Cobel and she bans the MDR department from leaving the room. This sees Mark act in defiance, and he, along with the others, march to meet the O&D department where the employees finally meet and share whatever knowledge they have of the place and the department. But the most interesting thing is that Mark's outie finally calls the mystery person who has been calling on the phone Petey left behind. He tells the person that he is Petey's friend and that he wants to understand.
The end of the episode sees him arrive late at night at his old school where he used to teach — something that the lady who arrives to meet him already knows. Upon asking her who she is, we see her order Mark to follow her as his journey to getting answers that Lumon hides begins. What will he learn about the shady company? Will he find it detrimental to the truth? Watch the next episode to find out!
