Last night’s [Wednesday, August 3] episode of Mr. Robot focused heavily on the women in the series. “Logic Bomb” allowed us to see each woman’s power and vulnerability, kicking off the episode with a first-hand look at Darlene’s frailty and how she deals with the mounting pressure.
*IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE TURN BACK NOW. MAJOR SPOILERS LIE AHEAD!*
Under pressure from Elliot, who has decided to go forth with his plan and hack the FBI database in order to remove all incriminating evidence against himself, Angela, and the other 5/9 hackers, Darlene is forced to turn to Angela for help.
As Angela works in the same building as the FBI agents trying to track down Elliot and crew, Darlene asks her to drop a device on the 23rd floor in order for the hack to take place. This hack would allow access to all FBI android phones, databases and E-Corp databases. Unfortunately for Darlene, Angela refuses to make the drop and decides she will take her chances. That is until she runs into her ex, Ollie.
Angela meets up with him at a bar and realizes he is recording their conversation. This is moments after he hands her his resume in hopes of getting a job. It turns out he has spoken to the FBI more than once about the CD, although he claims he didn’t name her, but did help give a composite sketch, presumably of Elliot, to the FBI during their conversations. With her back up against the wall Angela is forced to save her own skin, and Elliot’s for that matter, and make the drop. After rekindling her friendship with Elliot, Angela heads to the safe house and meets up with Darlene to begin planning the drop.
On the FBI side of things, Dominique heads to China to meet with the minister of state security after uncovering evidence at Steel Valley. White Rose of the Dark Army is Minister Jung and holds the title of minister of state security unbeknownst to Dom. Minister Jung hosts a party at his estate and gets Dom to open up about why she joined the FBI. He also sort-of lets her in on his double life as White Rose by showing her some of his dresses. He claims they are his sister’s but Dom is aware of his family lineage.
After quoting Shakespeare, Jung leaves in a hurry, presumably due to Dark Army matters. The next day Dom and the other FBI agents are visiting one of the Chinese data farms and are ambushed by two masked men. Many of Dom’s fellow agents are slain. We have yet to see if she makes it out alive. Curiosity may kill this cat.
Back in New York, Joanna Wellick is back to her devious ways. After Kareem’s paranoia increases, she has him paralyzed then violently murdered by one of her guards, staging it to look like a robbery gone wrong. Kareem takes a shot to the chest and to the temple. Joanna wanted him to die with answers, “Otherwise we are nothing but ruthless murderers,” she said. That’s cold. She quickly warms up, however, when she receives another anonymous phone call. Is Tyrell still in New York? Who is calling her? Whoever it was, was literally right outside her apartment.
Elliot also deals with some violence at the hands of Ray and his henchmen in this episode. After some poking and prodding, Elliot learns Ray’s site sells a little bit of everything—drugs, young sex slaves who have obviously been victims of human trafficking, weapons, and hitmen for hire.
Unfortunately for Elliot, the other hacker he pried this information from was not as trustworthy as he thought. Flipping on him immediately, Elliot is grabbed by Lone Star and a few of Ray’s other thugs and is beaten.
The number one lesson to pull away from “Logic Bomb” is that curiosity almost always gets you injured and may also end up getting you killed in the hacker world.
