Storyline

Elliot refuses a job offer from Tyrell, saying he's happy where he is now i.e. working for Gideon at AllSafe. Gideon thanks him for saving the company and offers him a raise. When coming back from work Elliot finds Darlene in his apartment. They take the train to the fsociety warehouse where he meets Mr. Robot, that tries to convince him to go on with the hacking they've started together. However, Elliot is not sure he wants to continue doing this anymore and even considers turning them in. Written by Andreea D

Trivia

Malware refers to malicious software. Cisco (Michael Drayer)'s CD introduces trojan horse software to Ollie (Ben Rappaport)'s computer, which enables Cisco to (at least) access webcam and to take screenshots. See more »

Goofs

When Elliot is searching the web for industrial climate control white papers, the search engine URL and the URL of the white paper are not fully qualified domain names (FQDNs). Both are lacking a top level domain (TLD) and would only be reachable with unusual network configurations especially in this context. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Robot: Tell me one thing, Elliot. Are you a one or a zero? That's the question you have to ask yourself. Are you a yes or a no? Are you going to act or not?
Elliot: Yo... You've been staring at a computer screen way too long, homie. Life's not that binary.
Mr. Robot: Isn't it? Sure, there are grays... but when you come right down to it, at its core, beneath every choice, there's either a one or a zero. You either do something or you don't. You walk out that door, you've decided to do nothing, to say no, which means you ...

Will you fight?
21 January 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

The second episode of "Mr. Robot" is not as amazing as the first, and the flaws are more clearly seen, but is an enough good episode. We repeat the same mistakes as in the first episode: way too "smart" people that seem to live above everyone else. Sadly, it all becomes a little bit repetitive, as the story barely advances. Mr. Robot does an "offer you can't refuse" to Elliot and that's basically everything that happens. The cliffhanger from the pilot is dealt in a very childish way (let's come here, Elliot, I'm going to talk to you in private and show you a whole new world...). That Elliot seems to be able to say "no" to all the offers he is getting is the best part of all.

The other part of the episode, the "lonely vigilante", is quite lame. That Elliot is a great hacker seems obvious. But all the story and how is dealt with reeks of laziness. A "Sherlock hacker" deserves better.
