Last week we watched as Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) toyed with Elliot’s mind, making him think his life was unraveling like a cheesy 80s sitcom. The real story was not as fun. Elliot (Rami Malek) was being held by Ray (Craig Robinson) and his goons. Ray created a secret website that offers guns, explosives, women, murder for hire, and basically any other twisted thing you can imagine, and Elliot saw it. Meanwhile Fsociety was trying to hack the FBI. Darlene (Carly Chaikin) enlisted Angela (Portia Doubleday) to put the hack in motion, but that brought Angela face to face with Agent DiPierro (Grace Gummer) who was fresh off her return from China, where The Dark Army (a group of cyber terrorists) murdered several FBI agents. In order for Elliot to get back in the game, it appears he will have to work with Mr. Robot.

Spoilers for this week’s Mr. Robot.

Last time on Mr. Robot, Elliot (Rami Malek) was one step closer to letting Mr. Robot back into his life. The reason? Darlene (Carly Chaikin) feared the Dark Army was after them. The Dark Army are the most dangerous hacker group on Earth who helped fsociety pull off their massive hack of EVIL Corp. One member of the group had already been murdered and Darlene was paranoid she’s being followed. Angela (Portia Doubleday) was beginning to see how deep the evil of E-Corp runs. So far this season, Mr. Robot was like the Republican National Convention, full of fear, paranoia, eccentric business tycoons, and undeniably crazy fun.

We left Elliot (Rami Malek) on the brink. He’s so desperate to keep Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) out of his head, that he is drugging himself into a trance-like existence. He is starting to snap. He goes on a God-hating tirade at church, and re-swallows regurgitated adderall. He has a new friend, Ray (Craig Robinson), who has helped him stabilize, but more problems are soon to come. FBI investigator Dominique DiPierro (Grace Gummer), digging through garbage, found a clue that has led to the Coney Island arcade that houses fsociety. And Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and the rest of the group are spiraling – one murdered, and others believing Elliot is the one who ratted them out.

Mr. Robot
Season 2 Episode 3 “eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd”
Directed by Sam Esmail
Written by Sam Esmail
Created by Sam Esmail
Starring Rami Malek, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Christian Slater, Michael Cristofer, Stephanie Corneliussen, Grace Gummer
USA Network
Air date: Wednesday, July 20, 2016, 10pm

In the 2-part second season premiere of Mr. Robot, we found Elliot (Rami Malek) totally off the grid. To keep Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) at bay, he developed a mind-numbingly boring daily routine, with not a second of it involving computers or the internet. He goes to church meetings, therapy, and keeps a journal of all the times Mr. Robot tried to get into his head… actually, I guess it’s out of his head. Meanwhile fsociety, having achieved their goal of resetting the economy and turning the entire nation upside down, plotted its next move despite its leader being out of commission. Darlene (Carly Chaikin) put the gears in motion – a plan to extort $5.9 million from E-Corp and have executives literally burn the money in public.

The FBI was desperately trying to figure out who was behind this. Their chief suspect was Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom), but he too went off the grid, and poor Gideon (Michel Gill) took the fall. One of the few people in the world Elliot respects, Gideon begged him to help. Unfortunately being linked on television to a massive cyber attack on the nation’s economy isn’t good for your social status, and Gideon was assassinated in a club. Will this be the motivating force to draw Elliot back to the internet and fulfill his role as leader of fsociety?

Spoilers below.
