Mr. Robot - Episode 3.05 - eps3.4_runtime-err0r,r00 - Promo, Promotional Photos, Interview & Synopsis By Nirat Anop (November 2, 2017, 5:47 pm)
Robot starts glitching out after getting physical with Tyrell. What are we seeing here — the disintegration of any true rules keeping Elliot and Robot away from each other? Are there any "rules" we should be tracking about what triggers the disintegration?
What we're seeing here is a transformation from Mr. Robot to Elliot. The disintegration rules are still in play. That means that Elliot can't see what Mr. Robot is doing and Mr. Robot can't see what Elliot is doing. We're just leaning into the actual moment of transition from Mr. Robot to Elliot. Angela recognizes that Mr. Robot has changed back into Elliot, which is why she utilizes her "backup plan" that was established in the first episode of this season. John and his assistant A.J. Calomay did a great job of working in some interesting music and sound choices here, especially with that injection. They did a great job of building out tension, from a sound perspective.
