Verdict: Mr Robot Season 2 Episode 5 “eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc”

While Ray’s subplot and Elliot’s involvement in it is a little predictable, it does work nicely as a way of exploring the vigilante in Elliot and in challenging his moral perspective on hacking. Furthermore, this episode does provide a lot of the thrill and explosive narrative missing from the season so far, with a surprising cliffhanger involving Dom and the Dark Army, whose role in the over arching story continues to become more interesting and complex, further weaving themselves amongst the various players. However, that is also where the show falters. There are too many characters with their own agendas, such as Angela and Joanna, whose subplots are either becoming repetitive or similar to stories from last season.  8.2/10
