As Elliot is being driven home after his meeting with Tyrell, Mr. Sutherland tells Elliot to call him Mr. X, making a reference to the Oliver Stone film 'JFK'.
Elliot declines a job offer from Tyrell Wellick, interim CTO of E Corp. Elliot, increasingly paranoid, uses more morphine than normal. Darlene visits him at home to bring him to fsociety, surprising him. Mr. Robot and fsociety want Elliot to hack into a gas plant and cause an explosion, destroying the adjacent offline backup facility used by E Corp; Steel Mountain. However, Elliot does not want to risk lives - and backs out. Shayla's supplier Fernando Vera shows signs of abusing Shayla so Elliot gathers information against him, and when Vera rapes Shayla, Elliot turns him in despite Shayla's explicit instructions not to. Meanwhile, Ollie's computer gets hacked by an unknown man named Cisco, who is shown to be an associate of the Chinese hacker group, The Dark Army. In the closing scene, Elliot and Mr. Robot discuss Elliot's falling out with his father - Mr. Robot pushes Elliot off a railing onto the rock-strewn beach below as punishment for not keeping his father's disease a secret and betraying his trust.
