What I’m Watching: Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot: Season 3, Episode 9 “eps3.8_stage3.torrent” (B+)

I didn’t realize that there’s just one episode left in this season, and I’m hopeful that it’s still popular enough to come back for a fourth season since this year has proven extremely worthwhile. Opening with the Allsafe meeting with Philip, Colby, Tyrell, and Gideon felt like a nostalgic trip to a time long, long ago before things really got crazy. Now, we’ve come to the point where Tyrell has been located and now might even be headed back to his old job, but he has no family and not much to live for anymore. Mr. Robot went to Tyrell to chastise him for what he did and then left a note for Elliot because he’s realizing that they might be better as occasional allies. It’s a troubling scenario when Elliot is the less crazy one in the room, since Angela still believes that everyone is going to be okay somehow and he understands that there’s no way that’s going to be possible. Suggesting Stage 3 to Irving means that he has a plan, and unfortunately, Whiterose and his top adviser seem to know that he’s coming for him. There were many red flags in Dom’s behavior that suggested she was going to get herself into trouble, namely letting Darlene be her wingwoman and then opening the safe in front of her when they were back at her apartment. Darlene’s performance was convincing, and she was just as believable when she confessed to everything after she was caught red-handed. She should have listened to her brother, since Dom is now her only hope of survival after Agent Santiago went ahead and called Irving right after to explain exactly what she was planning to do.
