Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 5, while not exactly as thrilling as last week's hallucinationpalooza, had some fantastic character moments and great exchanges of dialogue.

Elliot's final monologue about the beach and carrying shoefuls of sand into his living room as a kid was a beaut that delivered the punch that "Exploits" needed.

The episode was helped by the bite-your-nails scenes where Elliot was nearly busted.

I have to note the angles used during the dinner party. The scene was framed beautifully, conveying the suspicion, boredom, dominance, and fawning happening throughout the scenes.

Around the edges of these two narratives, we get Angela, moving on from Ollie and in to her father's house. It's a nice counterbalance to all the portentous stuff happening upstate, and serves to further humanize her.
