Storyline

Whilst trying to get through the morphine withdrawal and get clean, Elliot tries to find a way to bring E Corp down once and for all. He realizes he and fsociety might have a chance but the time-line is really tight. As it was his idea, Elliot decides he should be the one going to Steel Mountain. However, his condition goes from bad to worse in a few hours and his hallucinations too get darker and more intense. Disappointed by her boyfriend, Angela chooses to deal with her problems by accepting a little help from Shayla. Darlene and Trenton try to get the Chinese on their side. Written by Andreea D

Still a good episode despite some confusing and pointless hallucination sequences.

The reaction for this episode was generally mixed to negative, but I think it is better than people are saying. Yes, there are a pretty good amount of hallucination sequences, but I think they work for the most part. I say "for the most part," because there is a weird sequence involving Angela and Elliot that didn't make sense to the story and I thought was generally pointless. However all of the others were either poignant, relevant, or just entertaining to watch.

If that was the only problem I may have given it a nine, but sadly it was not. There was a really big event that was hinted at throughout the episode that ended up never happening. Instead it was replaced by the hallucination sequences, which kind of made me mad because I felt like the show accomplished nothing.

However, unlike the last episode, they actually did the character development thing right this time. I got a sense of who these people are without them beating me across the face with it. The consistent strong performances of the ensemble cast help with this, along with amazing direction. Mr. Robot has the best direction of a show since Fargo. Overall this episode is good, but I am looking forward to an increase in quality in the next couple ones.

I give Season One, Episode Four of Mr. Robot a seven out of ten.
