“Mr. Robot” Season 1 Episode 7 “eps1.6_v1ew-s0urce.flv” aired last Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 10:00 PM on USA Network. In this episode, one month after Shayla Nico (Frankie Shaw) died, Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) finally comes clean to his therapist after realizing that he still missed Shayla. Meanwhile, Angela Moss (Portia Doubleday) makes a life-changing deal with Terry Colby (Bruce Altman); and Sharon Knowles (Michele Hicks) has a dangerous encounter with the scorned Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom). Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) and Darlene tried to get the band back together, and Darlene’s ex-boyfriend began to blackmail Angela’s ex-boyfriend. Read on to learn more about this episode.
While at his last mandated therapy session with Krista Gordon (Gloria Reuben), Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) remembered the first time he had met Shayla Nico (Frankie Shaw), whom he now missed, and silently acknowledged the fact that he had caused her death, in one way or another. He also then revealed that it had been a month since Shayla’s death.
Elsewhere, Angela Moss (Portia Doubleday) and Antara Nayar (Sakina Jaffrey) met with Terry Colby’s (Bruce Altman) with a deal on the table- they could offer something that would be beneficial to him, in exchange for Angela and Nayar to have an off the records meeting with Terry.
Back at AllSafe, Gideon Goddard (Michel Gill) told Elliot to take some time off due to Shayla’s death, but Elliot refused the offer. After being given some advice, Elliot remembered as to how we started hacking by manipulating web browser designs and wondered if anyone in this world would like to be seen for who they truly are, by their “view source code”.
Meanwhile, at a bar, Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) told Darlene (Carly Chaiken) to get back the Dark Army as he had a new plan in mind. She then met up with her ex-boyfriend Cisco (Michael Drayer), who broke things off with her for good, as she had been using his handle to get into the Dark Army chat room. Before leaving, Cisco informed her that the Dark Army would help fsociety again.
At Evil Corp, an irate Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom) fired three of his junior associates after they poked fun at women in the corporate and technology sector.
Angela, after being informed that Colby wanted to meet her alone, went to Colby’s house. There, Angela told him that in exchange for learning if he was there when Evil Corp ignored the leak of hazardous waste that caused her mother and Elliot’s father to die, she would testify that she broke “chain of custody” in his .DAT file case, which would cause the charges against him for that to go away. However, he tried to assert his power lewdly on her, which caused her to pity him and left.
Later, Nayar told her to go back as Colby had agreed to testify in court. At Colby’s balcony, Colby admitted that the Evil Corp executives hadn’t really been in their right minds when they chose to ignore the leak, due to shrimp cocktails, rain, and because they had been drunk that night.
Meanwhile, Mr. Robot recruited Romero (Ron Cephas Jones) back into fsociety by putting a gun to his head, and told him that if he didn’t see things through like he committed to, then Mr. Robot would also do what he said he would do if he didn’t.
Darlene then tried to recruit a reluctant Trenton (Sunita Mani) back into the fold, even though she made a good case to get back together to finish what they had started.
Later that night, at a party for Scott Knowles’ (Brian Mitchell Stokes) promotion, Tyrell met up with Sharon Knowles (Michele Hicks) at the rooftop for a romantic tryst, and ended up killing her after strangling her. However, this greatly disturbed him.
The next day, Gideon tried to talk Angela out of what she was about to do, because if she pushed through with testifying, then everyone in AllSafe would lose their jobs.
Outside the gym, Ollie Parker (Ben Rappaport) was followed by Cisco, and was blackmailed into doing something for the Dark Army, as Dark Army was now inside the AllSafe network thanks to Ollie and Angela.
Meanwhile, Elliot, much to Krista’s surprise, showed up at her office for a session. Inside, Elliot finally came clean to her, and told her, much to her horror, that he had hacked not just her, but others, and had helped others in the process.
