Alexa, when is the end of the world?

Unless a future technology goes very wrong indeed, Earth is most likely to be destroyed in several billion years' time.

The president can't go to Congress with a bailout right now.

I could see a scenario where the Chinese government loans E Corp the money it needs at a low interest rate, perhaps even zero.

You want me to convince the class to remove the contingency.

Your little pet project came through even better than you thought.

You do work at E Corp. Yes?

What is your position there?

I never said that.

I'm gonna confess.

I've already called my lawyer.

We can't beat them.

No matter what we do, we will always lose to them.

Next person's not gonna offer you food.

They're gonna grab you off the street and throw you in a dark cell.

I've tried to have him tracked, but I've been unsuccessful.

Got it.

Is that where the phone is right now?

[door creaks]

Okay, okay.

We're gonna settle down here.

Hey, Elliot.

You can stay here and crash on the couch.

Home would be better.

Is Mr. Robot MIA because he's afraid of what I might find?

Send all units to Watts and 6th Ave.

[machine gun firing]

[glass shattering]

Angela's right. We can't beat them.

But we don't have to lose to them either.

Maybe there's a way to stop them from winning.

Mr. Robot, the ever-present silent observer, watching me at all times, even when I can't see him, listening in on our conversations.

He's always a step ahead of me, 'cause he is me.

Maybe he's the key to this.

Maybe he's always been the key to this.

What if I could be the silent observer?

[sparse piano music]

In middle school, I took a Visual Basic class.

I remember my friend Sam telling me about a technique he used to induce lucid dreams so he could study in his sleep.

You lie in bed and repeat this mantra in your head: Mind awake. Body asleep.

This isn't my blood, in case you're wondering.

You need to finish this evaluation.

I understand you have your procedure, but these are extreme circumstances.

I believe the best use for me is back at the crime scene.

We should be getting Director Comey involved.

That's how serious this is.

You're in shock.

At you and the way you're treating me right now, sure.

Can I speak to Agent DiPierro for a minute?


[door opens and closes]

You know I can't leave.

Yes, you can.


You're going off the handle.

They're gonna force you to take leave if you keep talking like that.

This is all your fault.

I told you not to release the sketch.

I told you Dark Army was gonna come after him.

And not only are several people dead, but I almost just got killed out there.

Well, that makes me feel good.

It's not every day I get casually blamed for the deaths of innocent people.

Clearly, Dark Army is behind this.

And who knows how far up this goes?

The Chinese government is definitely involved.

They're hiding something.

We need everything on lockdown. We might have a leak.

And I'm serious about what I said about Comey.

He needs to know.

This is a matter of national security now.

This is no longer just a terrorist attack.

This could be an act of war.

We should get the military involved.


I agree with you.

Something's going on.

Especially given the weird timing of this $2 trillion.

But we can't just go off on everyone without knowing all the facts.

What $2 trillion?

This morning, the U.S. got back in bed with China.

China bailed out E Corp.

Gave them a $2-trillion no-interest loan.


It's a trap.

Don't you get it? We have to talk to them.

They can't do this after what happened last night.

What, that some Mexican restaurant got shot up?

It was more than that, and you know it.

We have to tell them.

We can't let them get away with this, Santiago.

They're going to get away with this.

$2 trillion, Dom.

That's the miracle the world's been waiting for.

The U.S. isn't going to mess with its Chinese relations now.

And with the OPR investigation still going, the bureau isn't even getting close to it.

You gotta be kidding me.

A month ago, they tried to kill us.

And in politics, that's a distant memory.

This deal they have now is about to potentially solve the biggest global crisis in history.

[sighs] Now, look.

I'm on your side.

I'm not saying I'm walking away.

I'm just saying we need to start finding a way to walk in between the mines and not on them.

[keyboard keys clacking, computer hums]

Have you ever fantasized about murdering your father?


[keyboard keys clacking, computer hums]

Are you a giraffe or a seagull?

I cannot do it. It's unconstitutional.

We're talking about rolling out Ecoin loans.

I fail to see how the Constitution fits into this logic.

Look, with Ecoin equal to one dollar, it'll free up the economy.

It'll give you some breathing space.

You knew this was going to happen from the get-go.

And you're hitting me with this while there's an energy crisis across the Eastern seaboard.

Oh, yeah. I am coming to you first.


Don't give me that.

The only reason why you're here first is because you don't want to get slapped with regulations.

But if you are indeed asking, then I am saying no.

It's unconstitutional.

You can't make your own currency.

That is the federal government's job.

[pounds desk]

We simply cannot let you make big loans in Ecoin that you wouldn't make in dollars.



Look at me.

I am not the problem here.

The problem here is, hard cash is fading... rapidly.

That's just the way of the world right now.

And Bitcoin is spreading.

And if Bitcoin takes over, we are all in a world of hell.

It is unregulated, it's already reached its transaction volume maximum, and it is partly controlled by Chinese miners.

You just accepted $2 trillion from them.

Yes, yes.

And now I want to use it against them.

With Ecoin, we control the ledger and the mining servers.

We are the authority.

I will make sure you have visibility into every single wallet that's open, every loan, every transaction, which means we can start making new assets, which means we can start rebuilding the banking sector without your having to inject even more politically unpalatable federal funds into it.

The president will laugh in my face.

But he'll know this is the right thing to do.

This is gonna be controlled by a good, old-fashioned American company.

You want to regulate it?

Be my guest. Regulate the sh1t out of it.

I'll give you back doors, side doors, tracing... whatever you want.

Just don't shut it down.

Oh, honey.

My time is much more valuable than yours.

Speaking of, I've only allotted 28 minutes for this conversation, which is very generous of me.

So we should begin.

I'd like to leave.

Oh, no, you wouldn't.

You've waited so long.

Surely you want to know why.

That is, if you indeed believe that your time holds any value.

You've been here close to four hours, and you never thought to walk out the door.

[watch beeps]

The door was locked.

I've always found doors fascinating inventions.

They hold the entry to unlimited imagination.

Before you open any door, a world filled with possibilities sits right behind it.

And it isn't until you open it they are realized.

Such potential they bring to our minds.

And yet a lock stopped you from all of that.

How... lazy.

Your fish died.

Yes, I know.

You're a terrible person.

It was part of the test.

Take your pick.


Why were you testing me?

I know you have sensitive information, and I don't want you to release it.

Normally, my associates would have murdered you by now.

In fact, by my calculations, you should have been dead 90 days ago.

But somehow, you stuck around long past your expiration.

Who are you?

I am a woman of time.

And I don't believe in accidents.

You, like an annoying penny...

[watch beeps]

Keep turning up.

Everywhere I look, you're there.

That is why I wanted to meet.

So I could find out why you are so special to Phillip Price.

He's ruining our partnership, and somehow it seems that you're the motivation.

It's true, we have an event and a friend in common.

But I haven't been fully able to understand the meaning behind it.

What event?

It's no coincidence that you and Mr. Alderson became who you are after what happened with the Washington Township plant so many years ago.

What does this have to do with Elliot?

Do you know him?

If I told you that your mother and Elliot's father...

[watch beeps]

Died for a reason, would it make a difference?

That they were a trade, a sacrifice for the greater good, that they gave their lives to take humanity to the next level.

And you are both who you are today because of that event.

You would be a different person.

You wouldn't be sitting in front of me right here.

You are at the intersection of all of it.

So I'm not going to kill you.

But I am going to prove to you why you need to drop this mission that you seem so stubbornly unable to let go of.

Look, I don't know what you want.

[watch beeps]

But I'll give you the jump drive.

Please, just let me go.


How easy a quicksand of time people let that become.

We both know that you could keep finding the plant's data.

Like that penny that keeps turning up, your silly need for justice, revenge will rear its ugly head and encourage you to keep trying and eventually find a way to shut down my project.

I don't want your proof.

I want your belief.

Belief in what?

[watch beeps]

Do you ever think that if you imagined or believed in something, it could come true...

Simply by will?


Actually, I did believe that.

But I'm slowly having to admit that's just not the real world...

Even if I want it to be.

[watch beeps]

Well, I guess it all depends on what your definition of real is.
