Verdict: Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 10 “eps2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx”

Thought the direction is sublime with a range of incredibly well framed shots and the structure and score reflects the quick pace, ultimately not a lot is achieved in this episode, spotlighting the shows themes rather than narrative. While this is not necessarily bad, further exploring the character relationships and the concept of power, the writing does become at times too convoluted and philosophical losing the audience. I did appreciate however, that the character development within this episode was more organic and true to the characters than previously, where the show had a tendency to have sudden twists. Furthermore, the tense cliffhangers at the end of the episode, along with a number of smaller questions and mysteries means the show will certainly have a greater narrative focus in the future. 7.5/10
