“Mr. Robot” episode 7 will explore the fragile relationships among the members of F-society. The promo video of the next episode shows Christian Slater’s character pointing a gun at fellow hacker Romero. [Spoiler alert]
Slater’s character is seen threatening Romero (Ron C. Jones) in the preview video of the next episode. Romero has had problems with the group relying too much on Elliot (Rami Malek) in the past, but has so far remained committed to the goal of bringing down Evil Corp. The mysterious Mr. Robot has stood behind Elliot and has guided him on several occasions.
Mr. Robot is seen pointing a gun at Romero’s head and saying they both know he is “crazy.” Before Elliot came onboard, F-society’s plan was to bomb the Evil Corp building at Steel Mountain to take down the company. The plan would have resulted in the deaths of many innocent people.
The promo pictures of the next episode posted on SpoilerTV show Slater’s character having a chat with Darlene [Carly Chaikin] at a bar. The hackers of F-society will have to come up with a new plan after their hack of Steel Mountain failed because a Chinese hacker group backed out at the last minute.
The promo pictures also show Angela Moss (Portia Doubleday) meeting with the lawyer again. She was previously told the only way she can have a strong case against Evil Corp is if someone in the company testifies to the willful wrong doings of the company. Angela had also visited the house of former Chief Technology Officer Terry Colby (Bruce Altman). Elliot had encouraged her to do what she felt was right in the previous episode.
Meanwhile, Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom) continues to feel frustrated working under Scott Knowles (Brian Stokes Mitchell). The two characters had a big confrontation in the previous episode and Tyrell realized Scott and his wife would be more difficult to deal with.
Elliot appears to be worried about his contribution to society in “Mr. Robot” episode 7 and the promo video shows him wondering if his life will be a “blip in the cosmic calendar.” The character experienced a major shock in the previous episode after he saw that his friend Shayla (Frankie Shaw) was murdered by Fernando’s (Elliot Villar) gang.
