Mind Awake. Body Asleep.
A whole lot went down during this week’s episode of Mr. Robot. ‘Python Part 1’ took us on a wild ride down the rabbit hole with its role reversal’s and surprising encounters.
First things, first. China agreed to bail out E-corp. They lend them 2 trillion dollars. E-corp sees that Bitcoin is spreading and wants to invent E-coin (their own currency). Price wants to throw it back at the Chinese government who just lent them money. He wants to undermine them.
Dom learns about all of this from her boss while she is in the hospital. For once her boss agrees that they should get the military and homeland security involved but his hands are tied. The U.S. won’t mess with the Chinese government because of the bail out they just handed to them. Interest free might I add. Foreign relations. Go figure.
Angela takes a wild ride in a white cargo van and repeatedly keeps asking for her phone. Girl do you not know how much danger you are in right now? Who are you going to call? She is then brought to a home, guided to a room with a fish tank and locked inside. The room has one of the first computers, a rotary phone [similar to the one Elliot had at his mom’s home aka prison. Is this a clue? Is Angela in prison?] and an old school tape recorder. She is then greeted by a small child in business attire and given a series of psychological and riddle-like questions.
After waiting for her results for what seems like forever, Angela is greeted by White Rose. White Rose proceeds to tell her that she should have been dead 90 days ago but she somehow keeps popping up. Angela then discovers that Elliot and White Rose know one another. White Rose also mentions that Elliot’s dad and Angela’s mom’s deaths were a sacrifice for the greater good. Was this the plan from the beginning? Was 5/9 cooked up by Mr. Robot and then left for Elliot to complete with the help of The Dark Army? White Rose then asks Angela for her belief. In what, I’m still not 100% sure. Does it have something to do with her mother? Is she actually dead? I’m not sure what’s real anymore! What is the definition of real in Mr. Robot? What is the definition of real to White Rose?
White Rose also tells Angela to drop the township investigation. It will get her killed. To which Angela agrees and tells her lawyer to back off and no longer contact her.
Elliot’s world also got topsy-turvy. Elliot practices mind awake, body asleep and switches roles with Mr. Robot. He becomes the silent observer. Mr. Robot is digging through Elliot’s mail and finally finds what he was looking for; a menu with a Rot 13 algorithm. Someone is trying to contact him, but who? Mr. Robot eventually decodes the algorithm to reveal a phone number. He calls it and is given an address. 25th and 8th. There will be a cab waiting.
Elliot continues to follow Mr. Robot and gets in the cab. Moments later TYRELL gets in the cab! HE’S ALIVE!!!! Or is he? Still not sure if we are still in the rabbit hole. Gah, this show keeps our brains spinning.
Tyrell realizes that Elliot has forgotten everything and explains that Stage 2 is ready to go. It is up to him and Elliot to finish what they started.
WE LEARN EVERYTHING! Stage 2, what happened to Tyrell, what has been accomplished this far, those 3 missing days… everything!
All encryptions are decoded!
