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.
I love and hate it so much when a show is so good they can trick my allegedly college educated ass into believing everything that comes across the screen. This was the calculated formula used to craft this modern masterpiece called Mr. Robot.
This episode, more than any other in the series so far, required that you power down the paranoid, pattern-seeking parts of your brain (which the series has been gleefully stimulating week in and week out) and just feel what's happening.
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.
