Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) continue working together despite their history and tense romantic future? In the promo below, Mac reminds Will: “For just a minute, you forgot that you were mad at me.”
We also get a look at Marcia Gay Harden’s character, a key element in the new season-long arc, which includes a deposition about a wrongful termination suit. And Neal (Dev Patel), who was so brash as to be a proponent of blogs last season, this time around latches on to another story his bosses are reluctant to go along with — the Occupy Movement.
Maggie (Alison Pill) “is going to lose everything,” which hopefully includes frumpy sweaters — but not a place in the delightfully frustrating love quadrangle with Jim (John Gallagher Jr.), Don (Thomas Sadoski), Sloan (Olivia Munn), and the Romney campaign.

Here’s to more walk-and-talks, tense countdowns and triumphant Will McAvoy speeches. “The Newsroom” returns Sunday, July 14 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
