Critic Reviews for eps1.8_m1rr0r1ng.qt

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.

Christian Slater is great at playing manic.

"M1rr0r1ng" was downright playful at times, even while dealing with the heaviest of subject matter and most significant of plot machinations.

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."

Apart from the crazy things we learn about the Elliot of today, the hour also sheds some light on who Elliot used to be.

The reveal could have totally been cliché, but... the result is ultimately satisfying.
