AVClub: We’re back to the ones and zeros. Before Elliot logs in to Ray’s site on the TOR network, and discovers his new freelance employer is hosting child slavery, illegal weapons, hitmen for hire, and more, he has a moment of reflection. “If/Then” programming, he calls it—a situation where, if certain conditions are met, then a logic bomb detonates, and “everything blows up in your face.” It’s another version of the “are you a one or a zero?” speech Mr. Robot delivered early last season, an inevitable decision to come down on one side of a fence or the other. And Elliot instinctively goes exploring, as is his nature. Unfortunately, as we know all too well, curiosity is Elliot’s exploit. And it’s what just got him seriously hurt.
