Critic Reviews for eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12

Elliot has been broken for a long time, but "Successor" was the first Mr. Robot episode that truly showed everyone else around him is, too.

Something that Mr. Robot's second season has pulled off masterfully is demonstrating what an absolute damn horror show it is to feel surrounded on all sides, something pulled off perfectly with the tension building this episode around Trent and Mobley.

This week's episode is a showcase for Darlene, and Carly Chaikin makes the most of it.

To be honest, I have lost some interest in the show's plot and now simply enjoy its many beautiful and magical moments.

The idea of an Elliot-free episode of Mr. Robot sounds like the result of a wacky-tobacky session in the writers room, but "Successor" was a winner because of the way it pushed its characters to the edge and forced them to react.

What I enjoyed so much about this episode is that it finally put a stronger spotlight on Mobley and Trenton.

By the end of "succ3ss0r.p12," I found myself weighing possible outcomes as if I'd never been burned.

[Darlene] does make some choices here that are game changers, both personally and professionally.

The storyline didn't play as well as usual. None of this is Carly Chaikin's fault, though: She was phenomenal in an episode that showcased her portrayal of Darlene at its finest.

A taut, suspenseful outing; a needed investment in secondary characters; a solid riff on themes of estrangement; a welcome mental vacation from brain-hurty shenanigans.
