1 Dark Army told me stage two is ready.
I know he's dead.
I know this isn't real.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
People have been forging paper records.
We haven't set up a system to verify these sorts of claims.
Rebuilding our database is the only solution to this problem.
Immunity is on the table in exchange for a name.
That's all I care about.
We have to talk to them.
They can't do this after what happened last night.
What, that some Mexican restaurant got shot up? We can't let them get away with this.
They're going to get away with this.
Promise me you'll let me do the interview.
You've been messing with me for way too long.
It's my birthday gift to you.
(SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE) You know, of all the gifts he sent, this is the greatest we ever received.
I have to know what you're planning.
We were meant to be allies.
We might just want the same thing, and I need to be involved.
I am pretty positive you're dead wrong about that, my friend.
I don't think there's anything we could possibly agree on.
(THUNDER RUMBLING) Seems you've been very busy lately.
I have to know what you're planning.
We were meant to be allies.
We might just want the same thing, and I need to be involved.
I'm pretty positive you're dead wrong about that, my friend.
I don't think there's anything we could possibly agree on.
I don't know what game you're playing, but I suggest you cut the bullshit.
If there's nothing else, I think we're done here.
Aren't you forgetting that I know your dirty little secret? There are people close to you that wouldn't be happy if they knew what I know.
(TENSE MUSIC) We're both too smart to allow pettiness to dictate our actions.
We're better than that.
Weigh the pros and cons.
Do what you need to do.
As soon as the tabulations are over with, you'll know that telling anyone about this does neither one of us any good.
In fact, you'll realize that the only thing to do in your position when it comes to me is nothing.
(TENSE MUSIC) Elliot! (THUNDER RUMBLES) I believe in fate.
There's a reason we met.
There's something between us.
I can see it.
You're only seeing what's in front of you.
You're not seeing what's above you.
(THUNDER RUMBLING) (SEAGULLS CRY) I don't understand, I I want to.
Help me understand.
"So much depends upon a red wheelbarrow "glazed with rainwater beside the white chickens.
" (THUNDER RUMBLES) (SOFT, DRAMATIC MUSIC) My father used to say that to me all the time as a child.
It was the only English he knew.
Some silly poem.
It meant very much to him.
I use it as a reminder a reminder of him and a reminder of what I never wanted to become.
(THUNDER CONTINUES RUMBLING) (ELECTRONIC MUSIC) The young man stepped into the hall of mirrors Where he discovered a reflection of himself Sometimes he saw his real face And sometimes a stranger at his place He made up the person he wanted to be - With the echoes of himself - (DOOR BUZZES) Even the greatest stars Live their lives in the looking glass Even the greatest stars Live their lives in the looking glass (CLANKING, CLATTERING) (CLANG) Go on.
(ELECTRICITY CRACKLING) Even the greatest stars (METAL SHRIEKING) (CLANG) In the looking glass - (CLICK) - (MOTOR HUMS) (ELEVATOR CLUNKING SOFTLY) How is the Dark Army behind this whatever this is? (CLUNK) It's one thing to question your mind.
It's another to question your eyes and ears.
But then again, isn't it all the same, our senses just mediocre inputs for our brain? Come on.
Sure, we rely on them, trust they accurately portray the real world around us, but what if the haunting truth is, they can't? That what we perceive isn't the real world at all but just our mind's best guess? That all we really have is a garbled reality, a fuzzy picture we will never truly make out.
So this is where you've been staying? God, no.
We're only operating from here.
Dark Army set this up? They're our partners.
Of course they set this up for us.
We needed a discreet place.
Discreet? You're the most wanted man in the world, and you're walking around like that.
You really don't remember this, do you? Because I'm not the one who set this up.
We've been through this already.
It must have been him.
Mr.
Robot.
(TENSE MUSIC) (SIGHS) Elliot I need to know.
Are you able to handle this or not? You're here under great risk, not only to me, but to our plan.
And your, um disposition is very much concerning me.
Joanna.
Your wife.
She's been looking for you.
I'm doing what's necessary.
(HUMMING, BUZZING) Thank goodness they've given us these UPSes for the power surges.
Ready to look at what we accomplished? Wanna take your jacket off, hon? Don't call me hon.
I just meant you have some blood on there.
I had some too, on my shirt.
I know what's on my fucking jacket.
I'm sorry for the loss of I invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer any of your questions.
I'm not asking a question.
I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for the loss I invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer any of your questions.
I know you guys were close.
I'm sorry you had to lose him.
He was involved in one of the most notorious hacker rings in the world.
Things like this come with the territory.
I invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully You keep trying to invoke the Fifth Amendment, but there's this thing called the Patriot Act that a bunch of people signed into law.
You know what that means? It means that you are not on some TV show.
This isn't "Burn Notice.
" There are no blue skies for you out there.
Characters like you are not welcome here.
As far as anyone's concerned right now, you're an enemy combatant.
You don't have any rights.
What the fuck do you want me to tell you? I meet my boyfriend.
We go eat.
He gets shot.
End of Q&A.
Give me a sec.
(BUZZER) You're gonna want to talk to me.
We're not so different.
We're both Jersey girls.
I know it's hard for you to believe this right now, but trust me, by the end of this day, you and I are gonna be best friends.
Of all the gifts you've been sending me, I've got to say, this one got me the wettest.
this one got me the wettest.
So I'm waiting.
What? The phone calls the gifts.
Make me understand.
I bet you feel all high and mighty right now.
That right? Do you think you're a powerful man, Scott? Do you feel powerful? (SLURRING) I am the CTO of the largest conglomerate I'm not interested in your job title.
I want to understand what would make a powerful man like you risk everything all so he could drive me crazy? What does it matter? The morning I learned that I was promoted to CTO, I get the call.
Price wanted to hold an event that night to announce my position.
I thought, "I couldn't be any happier.
" And then Sharon walked in.
She had made a a doctor's visit and wanted me to go with her.
She had found out a month ago she was pregnant.
Didn't talk.
I didn't know if she was happy or sad or if I was happy or sad.
But when we first saw that sonogram We lit up.
I thought, uh (WEEPY LAUGH) this is gonna end up being the best day of my life.
(CRYING) (CLEARS THROAT) After the funeral, I didn't know why I couldn't understand how I could gain and lose everything In one fell swoop.
I wanted you to feel what I felt.
I wanted to give you hope that I could step on! (SOBBING) But I'm sorry.
(SOBBING) Ohh You pussy.
You piece of shit.
I hope you rot in hell like your wife.
You're mourning a woman who, after she found out she was pregnant, was gonna fuck my husband's brains out.
I'm glad she's dead.
Fuck her and her fetus corpse.
(WORDLESS YELLING) (CRASHING AND BANGING) Aah! (GRUNTS) (GASPING) (STRAINED) No wonder your wife was gonna cheat on you.
You're weak and pathetic.
That child's lucky to be dead.
(GRUNTING) (DARK MUSIC) (GAGGING, WHEEZING) No - (WHEEZING) (SCOT THUDS, OBJECTS CLATTER) - Oh, my God.
- (COUGHS) Oh, my God, what have I done? - (GAGS) - (WHISPERS) Oh, my God.
My God (GASPS, COUGHS) (TELEPHONE BEEPING) - (LINE TRILLING) - (GASPS) (WHEEZES, COUGHS) 911.
What's your emergency? Vincent had a punctured lung and a broken collarbone, but the doctors say he's gonna recover.
The bad news is, he's gonna be arrested and put away for a long time for his stunt in D.
C.
God.
Politicians love to teabag the rest of us.
Too bad they can't take the heat.
What your friend did was domestic terrorism in the eyes of the law.
Not my friend.
His associates, the ones we arrested, identified you as the ringleader of their outfit.
Trust me, I am no leader.
(LAUGHS) I can barely keep a guy.
Look, Darlene.
I don't really care what happened in D.
C.
In fact, I thought it was kind of funny.
I've never seen Congress move as fast as they did on that day.
But there are serious holes in your story.
And I want to work with you to figure out why.
Look.
Babe.
I know how this works.
You get close to me, play the sympathy card, relate to me we're just two crazy, wacky Jersey girls.
Take advantage that I did lose what probably was the love of my life.
And you act like you care.
But that's just it an act.
Which is sick and twisted.
I'd rather you arrest me and throw me into jail.
But let's get something straight.
You will not get anything out of me.
So why don't you go read your manual and find the chapter on conniving cunts that don't give a fuck about you or your feelings and then get back to me with some real tactics? Otherwise, get me a lawyer.
As far as I'm concerned, my only statement to you is that I saw my boyfriend go brainless last night at dinner.
I ordered the breakfast combo, and he stole some of my bacon.
If you want any other details, the answer is suck a dick.
(LAUGHS) (LAUGHS) Wait here.
(BUZZER) (DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES) Remember that movie? I used to love it growing up.
It's not really scary, but gory.
You know how those two things aren't really the same? This is the stuff we found from Cisco's place.
Couldn't find any tapes.
Figured you were smart enough to destroy them.
We're running fingerprints and DNA.
Soon we're gonna figure out if those fsociety videos were filmed using this camera.
If we find your DNA on that stuff I don't know you tell me how that looks.
As far as your fsociety videos are concerned, it looks like the one person that can help you is fucking dead.
As far as I'm concerned, Cisco and I were into filming some freaky shit.
Is that a matter of national security too, hon? Then there's this.
Remember your buddy, Xander Jones? According to him, you guys had a sexual relationship.
(SCOFFS) Dude, are you just gonna slut shame me all day? Is that really all you got? He also said that you were the one that stole his gun.
Well, I can't prove that, obviously, because your fingerprints weren't on his safe.
I figured you'd be crafty enough to clean up afterward.
What is funny, though, is that this casing is linked to the Fun Society arcade.
(TENSE MUSIC) Darlene You sure you still don't want to talk to me? (TENSE MUSIC) What do you think? They're planning something.
Mr.
Robot, Tyrell, Dark Army, and Whiterose are in cahoots to plan something big.
And the worst part? They all think it's me.
They all think I'm the ringleader, the one in charge, and I have no idea what it is.
This place is Mount Olympus.
We are prime.
We're ready! These are blueprints for a building and a disassembled firmware for an uninterruptible power supply, but I can't understand much past that.
I'm not sure what the play is.
I could ask him, but who am I really asking? Elliot, look over here.
(FOREBODING MUSIC) Paper docs are coming in from all over, slowly but surely.
The blueprints.
Is that the building? The offline version? 17 of 71 facilities around the country so far.
Within the next month, they'll have all the paper documents here.
I thought we were gonna have to deal with multiple facilities, but they're making it easier for us by moving it all to one.
This is where the paper records are going.
They're trying to rebuild the database.
Titles and deeds, the bloodline of all real property in this country.
This is how they're surviving the hack.
When our malware executes, their whole program Our malware? What malware? Oh, you orchestrated it beautifully.
When the hacked firmware Designed to override the safety limits on the UPS devices and overcharge the lead acid batteries in the battery room filling the space up with hydrogen gas.
After breaking the fans and cutting off backup power, the malicious firmware repeatedly re-engages the UPS autotransformer, creating a spark to ignite an explosion.
There are enough batteries to produce enough hydrogen gas to level the building.
When you hacked Evil Corp, you gave us access to the backdoor.
You made it possible for us to infect them.
I coded the femtocell malware for Darlene.
But it wasn't supposed to be for this.
The conference call leak, I must admit, was quite cute a nice distraction.
But this is for us.
All of us.
I'm gonna rip his fuckin' face off! This fucker thinks he can hurt my girl.
What's his address? Tell me his address, 'cause I'm gonna go find him, and I'm gonna fuckin' kill him.
(OBJECTS CRASH, SHATTER) Are you done? (OBJECTS CLATTERING) If you're serious about punishing him I am.
I am.
Just tell me what to do, and I'll fuckin' do it.
I'll do it.
No questions asked.
- Just - Shh.
If you are serious about punishing him, then you can do one thing for me.
What? Anything.
Say the word.
You remember the night we met at the E Corp party? Yeah.
You were tending the bar that night.
You stayed late to clean up.
Yeah, that's what we always do after the Then you saw Scott coming down from the stairwell leading to the roof.
He was disheveled, out of breath, sweaty.
You were about to ask him if he needed anything, but he was in such a hurry, he left without saying a word.
What are you talking about? I didn't see anything like that.
Yes, you did.
No.
I remember because the cops were asking every one of us questions about that night, and like I told them cleaned up my station, and I went home.
Derek, you said you were serious about punishing him.
(LAUGHS) Yeah, but Joanna Look at my face, Derek.
You want the man that did this to me to do what he did and get away with it? But Joanna, I Once you tell the cops your story, they're gonna ask you why you're just now confessing after months of silence.
You're gonna tell them that you were scared that Scott Knowles intimidated you.
That when Tyrell went missing, you didn't think any of that mattered anymore.
But your conscience got the better of you.
This is how we win.
This is how we punish him.
You understand? Thank you.
Thank you for protecting me.
Of course, babe.
I love you.
Now, let's go over it again.
- We can't do this.
- You want us to stay on target? This is the target.
This gets us to the top.
I know we've been operating under top secret on this program, but I think it's worth the risk.
This girl's being a wise-ass.
She thinks she's smarter than we are.
That's because so far she has been.
We got to show her we're smarter.
Unless she thinks we're worthy, none of this is gonna fly.
Just trying to sidestep the mines, like you said.
We've been building this plan for three months.
Look around you.
All our leads are getting killed and disappearing.
We've lost three suspects.
Dark Army's cleaning house.
So that must mean something is about to go down.
Our window is closing.
Every lead we've been following up to this point has led to a dead end.
Yeah, I'm gonna bring the ADIC in on this.
Please, you're gonna let him try and flip her? She's gonna shut down.
I'm right for this.
Then I'm gonna go in with you.
Let me do it alone.
I know her.
I am her.
And if we're doing this, we're doing this now.
(BUZZER) We have 6,332 agents working on just this case alone.
It's the hardest case I've ever worked on and probably the hardest one I ever will.
Swear to God, the only reason why I think I've gotten this far Is because I have no life.
(SMALL LAUGH) It's the only thing I've been able to think about.
Now I'm sitting here with you In this awful room.
And no matter what story gets written in the final analysis, we've both been a part of one of the biggest events in world history.
Believe what you want.
But neither you nor I are special.
I've already learned that lesson.
If you're open to changing your mind, I'd like to show you something.
Come with me.
You're a lot more special than you think.
(DRAMATIC MUSIC) The moth don't care when he sees the flame He might get burned, but he's in the game And once he's in, he can't go back He'll beat his wings Till he burns them black No, the moth don't care when he sees the flame The moth don't care when he sees the flame The moth don't care Sure, the strategy was risky, but we knew we only had one shot.
The flame and the moth got a sweetheart deal If we rounded everyone up, guns blazing, we thought we would never get the man in the middle.
And with the stakes being this high, it was imperative that we got him before he knew we were getting him.
No, the moth don't care if the flame is real So we sat back and waited.
They call it the python approach.
They'll lie in wait for the right moment to strike.
You know some can go up to a year without eating? And once he's in, he can't go back The patient predator.
He'll beat his wings till he burns them black And then Romero's death made you all scurry.
When he sees the flame Funny enough, you thought Dark Army was involved.
As it turns out, it was just a stray bullet from the neighbor next door.
Freak accident.
The moth don't care if the flame is real The flame and the moth got a sweetheart deal And nothing fuels a good flirtation Like need and anger and desperation No, the moth don't care if the flame is real The moth don't care if the flame is real So come on, let's go Ready or not 'Cause there's a flame I know Hotter than hot And with a fuse that's so Thoroughly shot (MUSIC STOPS) You've got to be fucking kidding me.
I've tried everything.
I fought him.
I OD'd on Adderall.
I made peace with him.
I even got myself arrested.
No matter what I do, he always finds a way.
Why? That's all I want to know.
Why is it so important for you to torment me? What is it that you care so much about? What's this all for? I'm not tormenting you.
After everything you've put me through, you continue to lie? I didn't lie to you.
He's alive, man! He's sitting right fucking there! You made a plan with the Dark Army.
When was that? The night of the hack? What is stage two? The femtocell, the backdoor? You planned all of that with him? You can't look at it like this.
You're me.
I'm you.
You figured that out.
We're the same guy.
Everything you're blaming me for you're blaming yourself for.
Stop talking in circles.
You got Whiterose to get us out of prison.
The release that was you.
You somehow communicated with them.
It's what you wanted.
You said to Darlene before we started this thing that we had to go all the way.
It was all part of the plan.
Otherwise, what was the point of the hack? If we were going to do this, we had to go all the way.
And that, Elliot, is what I want.
It's what you asked me here for.
Then tell me, what is that, exactly? What is "all the way"? This is where we get into trouble.
You're meant to know only as much as you can handle.
When you wander outside of your realm is when we end up fighting.
Are you you distracting me right now? (KEYBOARD KEYS CLACKING) (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) What are you doing? I'm hacking the firmware like we discussed.
We didn't discuss shit.
We're not hacking anything.
This will level that building and kill people.
Elliot, you need to leave that computer alone.
- I'm confused.
- It's over.
I'm deleting the malware.
Elliot, I wouldn't do that.
You can't delete that.
Not only am I gonna delete it, I'm gonna get rid of the backdoor.
You do that, and everything we worked for is gone.
Elliot, I am warning you This isn't what I want.
I want it shut down.
But this was your idea.
(SOMBER MUSIC) Leave the computer alone! He's not gonna let you do this.
Trust me.
(CLICK) (TENSE MUSIC) I don't know what's gotten into you.
We're supposed to be gods together, and yet you want to destroy our destiny? You're not making sense.
Elliot, listen to him.
Walk away from the computer.
You're the same.
(SHOUTING) What the fuck are you talking about? We are definitely not the same! Back away from the computer.
This is just another of Mr.
Robot's mind tricks.
No.
Elliot I don't want to shoot you, but I will.
Elliot, listen to him.
He's not holding a gun.
He's not even there.
Elliot, you need to listen to him and step away from the computer! Touch that keyboard, and I will shoot you.
No.
He won't.
He can't.
He doesn't exist.
I'm the only one that exists.
It's time to finally take back control.
(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) Real control.
(GUNSHOT) (SHELL CLATTERS) (EXHALES) Ah (SHAKY BREATHING) You know, when you gave me this, you said to stop anyone who gets in the way of our plan.
I didn't know what you meant, but now it's very clear.
You did this to yourself, Elliot.
You asked earlier what "all the way" is.
This is it.
(VOICE STATICKY) Sorry, kiddo.
(BREAKING UP) I couldn't let anyone stop this including us.
Thanks for staying with us, Codyites.
There's a lot to get to tonight.
Look, all we do here is is we try and bring you the truth.
And they're trying to take that away.
(PHONE BUZZES) They tried to take it away.
Some of you might notice your lights flickering tonight.
Now, the fa - (PHONE CONTINUES BUZZING) - (NO AUDIO) Hello? Don't worry.
It's Angela.
- (HEAVY BREATHING) - Tyrell? Tyrell, are you there? It's okay.
They told me you would be calling.
This is a secure line.
Are you with Elliot right now? Yes.
Okay, I'm on my way.
Don't let anyone near him.
I should be the first person he sees when he wakes up.
(SIGHS) Okay.
Tyrell, you did what needed to be done.
- I love him.
- (CRYING) I do too.
- (POWER-DOWN HUM) - (CLANK) (TIRES SCREECHING) - (CAR ALARMS BLARING) - (CAR HORNS BLASTING) ("We've Got Tonight" plays) I know it's late I know you're weary And I know your plans Don't include me Still here we are (CONTINUES TINNILY) Both of us lonely Longing for shelter From all that we see Why should we worry No one will care, girl Look at the starlight So far away We've got tonight Who needs tomorrow Have you given any more thought to what I said? I don't want to discuss this.
- Mobley - Fredrick.
(SONG CONTINUES PLAYING) Seriously, Fredrick, what if we could? This might work.
And also, it might not.
I've taken enough risks for one lifetime.
I don't want to discuss it anymore.
But what if we could generate the keys Tanya (CLEARS THROAT) Will you just please shut up? What? This is important.
- We need to talk about it.
- Change the subject.
I don't want to change the subject.
I miss my family.
I don't want to live here.
Oh, come on, it's nice out here.
You know, uh look, no more bad winters.
Hardly rains.
That's great.
I hate your friend.
He's a dick.
No, I-I told you.
He did not know you were in the bathroom.
Trust me, he knew exactly what he was doing.
Weirdo.
Save up enough money, and you'll be able to get your own place eventually.
Okay? Apartments here are dirt cheap.
Won't be that long.
Just be thankful he was able to get us this job.
(SONG CONTINUES) Both of us lonely Hey, what flavor did you get again? You want to trade? Please, just look at it.
Okay, so so what? Say I did.
Then what? If what I discovered is real, do you know what that means? Yeah, I know exactly what it means.
Yeah.
It means we could potentially undo this whole thing.
Put everything back the way it was.
I know.
I know.
Please.
Just look at what I found.
Excuse me.
Oh, sorry, dude.
We're on a break.
Yeah, I just had a quick question.
Do you have the time?
