Trivia

At around 50 minutes Elliot (Rami Malek) and those he cares about are watching the Evil Corp. building collapsing, this is one of many similarities throughout the series to Fight Club (1999). In this case the similarity is to the final scene in which Jack and Marla watch as the buildings collapse. See more »

Very much a transitional episode

I couldn't help but feel slightly underwhelmed by this episode. It wasn't badly made, it was just slow and relatively uneventful (particularly when compared to the previous episode). It is the epitome of a transitional episode. I will not go so far as to call it "filler", as I do believe that everything it setup will be important one way or another down the line. It's definitely a necessary episode. The ending got me excited to see the next one. It just isn't a particularly remarkable or memorable episode in and of itself.

Perhaps the most interesting scene in the episode is the flashback in the first ten minutes. I appreciated the way the sequence gradually ramp-ed up the tension from a casual conversation to the big moment at the end of it, accompanied by a score straight of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Some other scenes that I liked in the episode were the surprisingly heart-warming scene between Joanna and her boy-toy, the return of the BD Wong character, and Elliot's chess game with Mr Robot. I was mostly indifferent towards the rest. I am finding it increasingly implausible that Leon would be spending his time hanging out with Elliot, and increasingly irritating that I have literally no idea what is going on with Ray and his black-eyed business partner.

I did not enjoy this episode nearly so much as I had hoped that I would, but I recognize it as a necessary instalment, and still eagerly anticipate the next.
