Dom does her best to resist the Dark Army’s beck and call…to no avail. Of course. I’m really not sure what she expected. Well, she expected to be let off the hook by Whiterose – but we know that will never happen.

Of course, who can forget this clip from last week’s premiere? It was such a sick moment, I’m putting it in here because it’s for sure worth a rewatch – followed by Elliot and Mr. Robot’s reaction:

MR. ROBOT follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who, along with Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) and fsociety, starts a revolution to change the world. Season 4 will pick up where the third season finale left off, delving into the pros and cons of Elliot hitting “send” on the email that could reverse 5/9.
