Next week, Mr. Robot season 4 episode 2 continues the story of Elliot, the holidays, and chaos interspersed. E Corp is undergoing big changes, and between Elliot and Mr. Robot, we’re going to see plans and new partnerships. What we’re getting at in the end here is rather simple: Paradigm shifts. Elliot thinking differently than before. A Christmas tree being knocked over in rage. Scattered images of victory and perhaps failure.
Mr. Robot has long been a rather scattershot show for USA, mostly in that you never quite know whose story is being told and, beyond that, what the main focus is going to be. Yet, a part of the fun of this show comes via its own uncertainty, that you never know what is playing out in a character’s mind and what is in front of you.
Here is what we feel fairly secure about entering the rest of the final season — the Christmastime setting seems to be legit. The same goes for some of Dom’s struggles. We also think that there will be some unity, mostly because it makes more sense to have everyone together at the end than it does to continue to scatter them apart. Sure, separate agendas can make sense here and there … but all of the time? That’s when the story gets a little murkier and the pieces don’t fit together.
Speaking of puzzle pieces, CarterMatt has the full Mr. Robot season 4 episode 2 synopsis with some other information as to what’s coming up next:
elliot + darlene come together. dom gets dark army vibes. [what] is deus group? price has answers.
What you get from that is the same thing you always get from this show — uniquely-worded descriptions and clues told from an ambiguous perspective. It’s the perfect compliment to the promo below, which largely plays out in a similar form. You see assorted images and struggles, but not a cohesive theme. We just have to have faith in Sam Esmail to deliver a satisfying conclusion to this story– the biggest obstacle for Mr. Robot is its own ambition, and every little thing done to date.
