Goofs

The hack is supposed to happen in "one week" - the last week of March/First week of April. Yet all outdoor scenes have the trees in full bloom/with leaves, which only happens in the New York area at least a month later - late April/early May.

Similar Seasonal dis-continuities occur throughout the series. See more »

Quotes

Tyrell Wellick: I know you framed Terry Colby.
Elliot: I didn't.
Tyrell Wellick: Your father worked at Evil Corp before he died. That's a matter of public record. I'm not turning you in, if that's what you're thinking. I don't even have proof, and even if I did, I don't care. Just wanted to know your weakness. Now I do. Revenge. How ordinary. Just like our waiter. But even extraordinary people, and I believe you are, are driven by human banalities. And unfortunately, we're all human. Except me, of course.

Tense thrilling first half + slower heart sinking second half = great mid-season episode

Once again, we have a front-loaded episode; all the tense action happens in the first half, while the second half goes into more of the drama and dilemmas.

The first half of the episode is the infiltration of steel mountain. This was wonderfully tense, beautifully handled by the writers and directors. You can really feel the unique aspects of Elliot and the premise at work here. I loved his way of manipulating his way in. As you might expect, some things go wrong.

Then, the episode splits off into different stories. Shayla applies to a job as a waiter. The drug dealer from episode 2 schemes. Tyrell manoeuvres. Darlene gets some bad news, forcing the group into a painful dilemma. Angela stays with her father. Despite being slower, this second half is still intriguing. It's an improvement over last week's tedious, meandering hallucinations.
