Like the first episode, this episode is also not very "Black Mirror". However, the emotional impact it has really moves me. I just like Andrew Scott and his acting so much(btw check out "Fleabag" if you like him!). Social Media is not something innovative these days, but the way the story goes is wonderful. The story itself deserves a 10, but get a 9 since it's not as edgy as previous BM episodes.
