Hello, friend! Welcome to the Mr. Robot podcast on Post Show Recaps. Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) discuss the latest episode of Mr. Robot, covering each and every hour of the USA Network drama’s second season.
This week, Josh and Antonio initiate “Init 1,” because it’s a podcasting emergency: Elliot has become Mr. Robot! At least, we see the beginning of Elliot’s decision to form fsociety during a flashback sequence at the start of this week’s episode. What’s more, Elliot embarks on a cosmic game of chess against his alter ego in a battle for existence. Beyond the Elliot story, Darlene learns some rough news about the target on fsociety’s back, Angela makes a play against Phillip Price, one of the show’s most mysterious figures reemerges, and the questions surrounding Tyrell Wellick’s whereabouts only increase.
