Cast & Crew
Coming down from the shock of last week's ending, the latest episode of Mr. Robot managed to be just as powerful-and possibly more so-in a much quieter way, beginning with a bitter sweet cold open.
Angela, to her credit, finally demonstrates her true strength as a character this week.
The scenes between Portia Doubleday and Bruce Altman are fantastic - the seemingly innocent former who phrases softball-like questions but rebuts with a stoic and steely force; the unctuous latter who in another life might be your best friend.
Mr. Robot continues to be an emotional ride. At times I've considered the pace slow, but now, I'd call it more thoughtful.
I mentioned in the last review that Scott Knowles is a very pleasant surprise of a character. It would have been easy for Knowles to have been a one-note dupe, but nothing about this show is easy, and I love that.
