Mr Robot Season 4 Episode 5 Review

This week's episode of Mr Robot was so good! Let's dive straight in and see what unfolded!


“We don’t have to talk”

Elliot hacking the door at Virtual Reality

Who else just realised that besides there being only two lines of dialogue, the entire episode was silent? No wonder, everything felt so heightened! Sam Esmail is a genius! The silence really made everything feel eerie too, with the added suspense and tension you were always on the edge of your seat, uneasy because you didn’t know what would happen. Very clever!

Blood Is Thicker Than Water

Darlene and Elliot holding hands

I always wanted Elliot and Darlene to get along but no matter what, Elliot would always shut her out or turn her away when she needed help. But finally, after 4 seasons, Elliot acted like the older brother and not only turned the cops attention to him, in order to let Darlene escape but he held her hand to comfort her and let her know that everything will be alright!

I don’t know about you but I had tears in my eyes when that happened! If Elliot continues to behave like this, I'll consider liking him again but after what he did to Tyrell last week, it might take a few more episodes before I forgive him.

Krista’s In Trouble!

Vera at Kristia's house

I got really worried for Krista's safety when Young M.A’s character started following her. I kept thinking that Vera’s going to have her kidnapped but nothing really happened, until the end, when Vera showed up at her house.

Now I’m not too sure what Vera has planned but we do know that he’s going to use her to get to Elliot. So we’ll just have to wait till next week’s episode to find out what happens to her!
