Somehow manages to be MORE intense than the last one
15 November 2017 | by TouchTheGarlicProductionSee all my reviews

Anyone who thought we might get a reprieve from the intensity of last week's one-shot wonder was sorely mistaken; if anything this episode doubles down on the heart-palpitating tension. It shows the FBI closing in on Tyrell, the Dark Army executing Stage 2, and Elliot finally entering all-out war with Mr. Robot. All of these elements converge in exciting ways and built to a surprising (and confusing) climax.

While this episode didn't have anything as stylistically impressive as the long shot from last episode (then again, what is), I was still struck by how fresh and innovative it was in the way it depicted Elliot's battle with Mr. Robot. The unique editing patterns Esmail deploys add to the tension by putting us in Elliot's shoes and showing what it would really feel like to be battling a second personality. This showdown has been a long time coming, and it couldn't have been better executed.

The other plots all built the tension as well, placing many of the characters on dangerously converging paths. There was legitimately a point in the episode in which I believed that Angela, Dom, and Tyrell were going to die (even though they still had scenes from the trailers I hadn't seen). The one bit of levity came (surprisingly enough) from the Price-Zheng scene. Their dynamic is definitely one of my favourites in the entire show, and this episode shows a completely different side of it; the friendly jesting that goes on when they aren't competing with one another. It was really enjoyable watching them get along so well, even though we (and they) know it won't last.

All of this tension leads up to a semi-twist ending that left me intrigued but also quite confused. It makes sense in the greater context of things, but I need more information and extensive re- watches to figure out how all the individual characters figure in to it; some of them couldn't have known but also couldn't have not known. It's a mess, but I'm sure the show will sort it out as it always does.

In summation, Sam Esmail has delivered another tense, unpredictable, and stylish episode of Mr. Robot. I look forward to seeing what happens next and hopefully getting further explanation on some aspects of the twist.
