The entire Adderall sequence was stunning.

Sam Esmail and company have constructed a well-oiled mind-fuck, to the point where we trust nothing we see, nothing we're told, and nothing we could guess.

Finally getting the plot of the show back on the sure track. The track that made the first season so great.

Elliot wastes no time showing Mr. Robot exactly who's in charge of this body.

Overall, "eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd" solidifies the new era of the series. I'm equal parts nervous and excited, so keep it comin', Mr. Robot. You'll most definitely be on the winning side of the war.

More so than the premiere, this episode really focused on Elliot, and while he might not be immediately headed back to fsociety, it's clear he's back on that path.
