Even as Elliot seems to wrestle some control back for himself, he continues to burn the world around him.
The two-hour premiere does a brisk job of re-setting the pieces on the board and introducing new ones.
Is it even possible for a form of popular entertainment to imagine life after capitalism in a positive way? This is the question at the back of my mind, and one that will keep me watching this series.
Now that Mr. Robot is returning for a second season, it succeeds in keeping the blistering pace and high-stakes momentum that its first act set.
