Mr. Robot | Season 4, Episode 5 Recap: “405 Method Not Allowed”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) script out all their thoughts on the latest episode of Mr. Robot and translate them to podcast via text to voice, as a grand tribute to the (mostly) dialogue-free “405 Method Not Allowed.”

In “405 Method Not Allowed,” creator Sam Esmail removes spoken dialogue from the equation for a largely wordless hour of the USA Network thriller. Elliot (Rami Malek) and Darlene (Carly Chaikin) break into Virtual Realty in an attempt to get their hands around the throat of the Deus Group’s money source, while Dominique DiPierro (Grace Gummer) is sent upstate to check on the burning Dark Army van left in the wake of “404 Not Found.” It’s all action, all the time, in a very special Christmas episode of Mr. Robot, and therefore a very special episode of the Mr. Robot podcast.

Josh and Antonio will be late with their podcast recap of “406 Not Acceptable,” so plenty of time for you to send in your questions and comments. Do so at by writing in to our email address or by reaching out on Twitter, and keep an eye out on your podcast feed on November 13.

About Mr. Robot

Rami Malek stars on USA Network’s Mr. Robot as Elliot Alderson, a computer hacker with dissociative identity disorder who alternately works with and against another facet of himself: Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), the spitting image of Elliot’s deceased father. Together and apart, Elliot and Robot have radically changed the world through their revolutionary acts, with a trail of bodies and billions of dollars left in their wake.

Additional cast includes Carly Chaikin as Elliot’s sister Darlene, Portia Doubleday as childhood friend Angela Moss, Martin Wallström as shark-suited Tyrell Wellick, Michael Cristofer as ruthless businessman Phillip Price, BD Wong as Minister Jiang aka Dark Army leader Whiterose, and Grace Gummer as federal agent Dominique DiPierro. Mr. Robot comes from the mind of Sam Esmail, who has directed every episode since season two.
