After four episodes of preparatory groundwork, "eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc" brings the pieces all together in the most exciting episode of the season so far.
If Mr. Robot has taught us anything, it's that these characters often band together right before falling apart, these "collaborative efforts" always lead to bloodshed.
The show needs to find more ways to get Darlene and Angela together, since those scenes are usually compelling.
Last night, the Mr. Robot we loved in the first season finally made its return.
But "Logic Bomb" -- the best episode of the season so far -- proved that Mr. Robot works better when these characters bounce off each other and are after similar goals.
The fingers are fluttering, the voiceover is in full effect, the eyes are bulging. Elliot (Rami Malek)-or is this Mr. Robot?-is back in the game, and it couldn't have come soon enough.
What happens next is, in fact, a series of unnerving surprises, and a cliffhanger that sends Mr. Robot hurtling into its second half with renewed vigor.
Mr. Robot delivered a solid episode this week, one that finally saw the show's disparate storylines begin to converge in interesting ways.
Though the Tyrell mystery is waning, in both importance and execution, I'm glad we found out what Ray was all about and I really enjoyed how it wound up being so much darker than I ever anticipated.
In... "eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc," creator Sam Esmail brings us more into the overall world of the characters and their post 5/9 lives.
For me, Mr Robot doesn't need another subplot. It already has enough on its plate trying to keep the main story -- told through Dom, Angela, Darlene -- on the rails, plus the increasingly weird Mrs Wellick narrative to boot.
The sleeper has awakened. The dark knight rises again. Superman, reborn! Elliot Alderson is hacking again, and damn, if it doesn't feel good.
Mr. Robot started off strong this season, full of intrigue and pathos, but this is the first episode that really felt exciting.
