The episode ends with an incredible scene of cold and clinical latex-wrapped malice from Martin Wallström's Tyrell Wellick as he reveals the depths of his true super-evilness to Elliot.
Elliot's still the focus because much depends on his actions and interpretation of reality, but the supporting cast has rounded out in wonderfully unexpected ways since the beginning of the season.
show is Rami Malek, and Rami Malek is the show, and Elliot's reaction... was more powerful than any simple "gotcha!" moment could have been.
"Mirroring" wasn't about revealing answers to us, it was about revealing answers to Elliot, and that's what gave the episode its power as a fantastic follow-up to the head-'sploding "White Rose."
