Critic Reviews for eps2.7_init_5.fve

If this episode is any indication, that tapestry is tearing itself apart. Esmail reached into his constantly-expanding bag of visual tricks to demonstrate the idea that Elliot and Mr. Robot are breaking apart, separating like oil poured into water.

It's a surprise how important the past of Washington Township is to the future.

Ya know, Mr. Robot has always done an excellent job of misdirection and surprise knock-your-socks-off twists.

With "init_5.fve," Mr. Robot returns, for now, to something like equilibrium, and like succ3ss0r.p12 it concludes with enough clouds on the horizon to hold the interest another week.

Truthfully, this show has been missing a key element all season long: Tyrell Wellick. The slick-haired, cold-blooded exec helped make Season 1 the addictive ride it was.

Things are coming together rapidly, and the story is starting to make more and more sense. Here's to all Tyrell in the season's penultimate hour!

Mr. Robot teaches us to trust no one, and that definitely includes the government. These guys are even sketchier than their corporate overlords, as demonstrated in an unnerving, dreamlike sequence.

People bounce off each other and ricochet around each other, and things light up and spin around, but everything is heading in a downward direction. Tonight's installment was one of the most paranoid hours yet.

The malevolent beauty of "Mr. Robot" Season 2 is such that knowing and not knowing are equally unpleasant options.

After last week's tense powerhouse of an episode, it would be understandable if "eps2.7_init_5.fve" slowed down the pace or eased up on the tension. Instead, it pretty much maintains a steady boil.
