Critics Consensus

Perhaps a bit unmemorable as a singular episode, "Eps3.3_metadata.par2" nevertheless executes off the show's slower, more straightforward pace.

Betrayal bookends this installment of Mr. Robot, and Darlene's soul is the real theme running throughout everything that happens.

A theme this season has been the slow but steady revelation of how badly Darlene, too, has been scarred by the disintegration of her family. Her trauma lacks the Gothic edge of Elliot's certainly, but it was devastating enough to drive her to murder.

Still, it's a mild cut above because credited writer Kyle Bradstreet takes the time to examine the regret and fear that have taken hold of the Alderson siblings.

Though this season has been both stylistically and narratively straightforward compared to the previous outings, it's no less challenging a viewing experience.

I'm loving this season so far.

In trying to fix the pace, Mr. Robot has lost some of that fever-dream aesthetic and mystique. Surely a grand compromise of pace, plot, and pathos is coming soon.

It's a useful bit of glue holding the season together, and the sort seemingly designed with eventual binge-viewing in mind, but not enormously memorable on its own.

If you love Tyrell Wellick, Mr. Robot Season 3 Episode 3 would've been a fantastic hour of television for you.

The pacing was a bit slower this week, but we still uncovered more clues of the moments leading up to Stage 2 which has me on the edge of my seat!

The very shape of Season Three ... points to a tacit acknowledgement, on creator Sam Esmail's part, that there is such a thing as needless complication, and "metadata.par2" only strengthens this impression.
