Last week we saw glimmers of hope, and then crashed back to reality. Elliot (Rami Malek) got a visit from Angela (Portia Doubleday), and seemed to be getting better. He was less paranoid, and more accepting of Mr. Robot (Christian Slater). The plan was to get Angela to take an fsociety logic bomb, and hack into the FBI. Elliot also discovered what Ray (Craig Robinson) was up to, and it’s not pretty. He uncovered a secret website which caters to the dark and depraved, and when Ray found out, Elliot was dragged out of bed by goons in the middle of the night. Meanwhile the FBI was in China trying to make connections between The Dark Army and the hack that halted the US economy. That didn’t go too well for Agent DiPierro (Grace Gummer), when a group of masked men stormed the FBI and shot and killed a number of them. If The Dark Army was willing to kill federal agents, I have to imagine killing fsociety hackers isn’t too big a deal for them.
