Looking Looking for Gordon Freeman Season 2 Episode 6 02

Looking Season 2 episode 6 “Looking for Gordon Freeman” airs Sunday February 22nd (9:30-10:00 p.m.) on HBO. In tonight’s episode, Patrick decides to be a “fun gay” by throwing a Halloween party, dressing up as his favorite video-game character. Agustín suggests that Eddie stay over after the party, but Eddie doesn’t want to move too fast. Forgoing her usual joint costume with Dom, Doris agrees to a couples costume with Malik (Bashir Salahuddin), though she’s hesitant to define their relationship. Eddie brings a friend to the party for Patrick, who’s distracted by Richie and his new beau, Brady (Chris Perfetti).

Show Summary: ‘Looking’ offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living — and loving — in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29-year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex’s engagement; aspiring artist Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group’s oldest member — longtime waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39 — is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled.

The trio’s stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices — and rights — for gay men. Also important to the ‘Looking’ mix is the progressive, unpredictable, sexually open culture of the Bay Area, with real San Francisco locations serving as a backdrop for the group’s lives. Rounding out the ‘Looking’ world are a bevy of dynamic gay men including Kevin (Russell Tovey), Lynn (Scott Bakula), and Richie (Raul Castillo), as well as a wide-range of supporting characters like Dom’s roommate Doris (Lauren Weedman), Agustín’s boyfriend Frank (O.T. Fagbenle), and Patrick’s co-worker Owen (Andrew Law).
