In continuing to look backward, Mr. Robot finds a way to creatively thread the story from point A to B.
Mr. Robot can use all of these previously unknown details to generate more tension. It's a much more satisfying way of creating that nerve-wracking feeling.
Part of the energy of Mr. Robot comes from the way it plays with real-life events, a tactic that becomes potentially more intriguing as the series threatens to get into parallel worlds or other more dramatically sci-fi modes of reality distortion.
For the life of me, I don't know why this episode exists.
It''s one of the most narratively straightforward episodes of Mr. Robot since Season One. It just gets you from point A to point B, is all, even if it had to backtrack a bit to do so. It satisfies a narrative itch, nothing more.
Say what you will about the show's wrong turns, it all feels like part of one big sprawling whole story that will fit together perfectly and make perfect sense when all is said and done. The third episode proved that Esmail knows what he's doing
Suggesting that Trump's rise could be blamed on the support of an international supervillain and his cabal actually diminishes the horror of it all by taking the blame away from the shifts in our own culture and attitudes that helped get him elected.
For a planned menu, Mr. Robot is a dark feast, and the next courses are still worth waiting for.
If you love Tyrell Wellick, Mr. Robot Season 3 Episode 3 would've been a fantastic hour of television for you.
This plot that took a while to cook was worth it and was incredibly savory while we watched it unfold.
