ACT 1

INT. ALLSAFE – 2014 #3.09.01#

Gideon, Price, Terry Colby, Tyrell around the conference table.

GIDEON

Allsafe officially opened its doors in ’04. We have a relatively small roster, but that way our clients have unprecedented access, our undivided attention--

COLBY

All those are standards E Corp expects – from any vendor we hire.

PRICE

Terry, please. Let him continue.

GIDEON

Allsafe has several other clients also in the Fortune 100.

And when called upon, we help them out in some pretty sticky incident response scenarios.We’ll be making a bit of a splash next month when we release our 2012 report.

COLBY

That’s all teddy bears and hand jobs, but what are your financials? We can’t wake up one day and find ourselves tits up, dicks blowing in the breeze.

GIDEON

Um, well, yes.

Angela enters, hands Gideon a file. Price’s first time seeing Angela.

GIDEON

Of course, of course, Thank you, Angela.

COLBY

Hey, hon, you want to top me off? And add a pinch of Sweet’N Low, but not too much.

GIDEON

Angela, uh, my assistant can handle that.

ANGELA

It’s okay.

GIDEON

No, no.

ANGELA

It’s okay.

GIDEON

Regarding our financials, Mr. Colby, this will correspond to page eight.

CUT TO:

INT. CAR – MINUTES LATER #3.09.2#

Price, Colby and Tyrell in the car on the way back to the office.

COLBY

Well, that was a cute field trip, Phillip. Next time I waste an afternoon, though, I’d prefer a happy ending. Now what’s the real angle here? We headed to Legz & Lace for happy hour?

PRICE

We’re gonna hire them. Set the deal in motion immediately.

COLBY

What I I don’t understand. Is there something bigger behind the scenes here we should know about, or I want the contract executed as soon as possible.

CUT TO:

EXT. STREET #3.09.3#

The men exit the car and walk into the plaza in front of E Corp.

TYRELL

Mr. Price, if I may I’m hesitant to depend on Allsafe as our security operation center. I’m confident I could lead a team to establish our own internal SOC. And with the appropriate resources

PRICE

I’m sorry, Mister, uh--

TYRELL

Wellick.

PRICE

Wellick! Mr. Wellick! I’m sorry if I misled you into thinking that I was seeking your counsel or approval, because I most certainly am not.

TYRELL

Understood.

PRICE

Good.

TYRELL

Just hope it doesn’t come back to haunt us.

PRICE

This decision has been made.

CUT TO:

INT. MOVING CAR – NIGHT – PRESENT DAY #3.09.4#

Tyrell in the backseat of a car with some fbi guy.

FBI

Remember to alert the Bureau if you’re going to leave the city, Mr. Wellick. And no international travel for now.

CUT TO:

INT. WELLICK TOWNHOUSE #3.09.5#

The home is empty. Tyrell picks up Joanna’s purse. He walks to the bassinet.

He cries.

CUT TO:

INT. APT 4E #3.09.6#

Elliot finds himself in front of his mirror

THEY OWN THE FBI

ELLIOT

Mr. Robot. He took over again. “They own the FBI.” What is he trying to say? Who’s “they”? Dark Army. It’s gotta be. Fuck, I left my machine unlocked. Trenton’s email. Did he see this? If he did, he knows that Trenton was close to finding a way to undo Five/Nine and that I’m gonna finish what she started. He also looked up info on Tyrell Wellick’s release. Why? What exactly did Mr. Robot do last night?

CUT TO:

INT. APT 4E – (LAST NIGHT) #3.09.7#

Mr. Robot checks the monitor with Tyrell’s info.

CUT TO:

INT. TYRELL’S #3.09.8#

Mr. Robot at Tyrell’s.

MR. ROBOT

Seventy-one buildings. Was it worth it?

TYRELL

Get the fuck out of my home.

MR. ROBOT

Gotta say, your revised plan was batshit insane. It was supposed to be only one building, but what you did--

TYRELL

I did what had to be done.

MR. ROBOT

You mean, what they told you to do. What’d they promise you, huh? Money?

TYRELL

This isn’t about them. This is about when you fucked me! I lost everything because of you. My son’s taken to Denmark, and my wife’s dead!

MR. ROBOT

Okay. Okay, I can’t say that it’s all been smooth sailing, but you gotta see the big picture.

TYRELL

There is no big picture! There was a job, and I fulfilled my duty, and that’s more than I can say for you.

MR. ROBOT

Oh, come on! You know damn well that’s not how the Dark Army works. You don’t go from most wanted man on the planet to hero unless they have plans for you, how can you not see that?

TYRELL

The things I did, the things I sacrificed, I earned my freedom. That’s the least they could give me.

MR. ROBOT

Horseshit. You’re being added to a collection of puppets.

TYRELL

No puppet, no puppet. You’re the puppet!

MR. ROBOT

Wake up! You made a deal with a force that’s bigger than you! When the time comes, they’re gonna ask you to pay what they feel you owe them!

TYRELL

This is a childish conspiracy!

MR. ROBOT

Childish? Who’s the one who said we were gods, huh? Time to grow up. There are no gods. Our closest deities are a society of the richest, most influential men in existence.

TYRELL

I’m done with this.

MR. ROBOT

Men who fuck over the rest of us for profit, for fun, and then leave us in the streets for dead. Just like your Joanna!

He walks to the kitchen and opens a drawer, grabs the blue latex gloves he saw when he beat the homeless man.

TYRELL

You don’t talk about my wife.

MR. ROBOT

Wouldn’t she want you to realize the truth and fight? Or would she want you to be their little bitch?

Tyrell takes punch at Mr. Robot.

MR. ROBOT

There you go. Fight! That’s the Tyrell who’s been missing. Now you want to stop them, too, before they put you in that choke collar? Unless you’re into that sort of thing.

The doorbell rings.

It’s Price. He sees Elliot (Robot) on the floor.

TYRELL

What? Oh, hello, sir.

PRICE

May I come in?

MR. ROBOT

Oh, shit.

PRICE

Didn’t mean to interrupt. Good evening, Mr. Alderson. Please join us. After all, you were a part of this too.

Price walks over to the kitchen table, pulls out a chair and takes a seat.

CUT TO:

INT. FUN SOCIETY ARCADE #3.09.9#

Scene from sneak peek.

ELLIOT (V.O.)

It’s weird, being here again. It’s like we’ve come to that slug light at the end of a rollercoaster. We’re coming full circle. Darlene and Mr. Robot started this whole thing and now she and I are going to end it.

ELLIOT

Trenton was investigating Romero ever since she found out he was monitoring our machines.

DARLENE

This is big.

She clicks through the pdf.

DARLENE

Why’d she send this to you?

ELLIOT

I dunno.

DARLENE

If Trenton’s right and the encryption keys were exported the night of the hack, then... there’s a chance we can recover all of E Corp’s data.

ELLIOT

If I can find those keys.

DARLENE

Why would Romero do this? There was never supposed to be a plan B, that was the whole point. This hack was supposed to be all-in.

ELLIOT

He did it for the reason we need those keys now. In case our revolution failed. We need access to his keylogger files. The feds confiscated his drives now all of his data’s in the FBI’s evidence storage system.

DARLENE

Sentinel. Yeah, I know it well.

ELLIOT

That’s why I’m here, I need you to give me all the intel you have about the FBI.

DARLENE

You do realize this isn’t Angela batting her lashes at some feds to drop a femtocel off at their E Corp office. Sentinel is the Fort Knox of closed networks and you want us to just waltz in there and--

ELLIOT

Not us. Me. I’m gonna do it.

DARLENE

Did you not hear me? You will get busted. I don’t care how good you think you are. The only way we do this is if I go to them. I’ll hit up my contact--

ELLIOT

We can’t trust them. The Dark Army owns the FBI.

DARLENE

How do you know that?

ELLIOT

Doesn’t matter. Going to them isn’t an option. I might have an angle.

DARLENE

No, I told you I spent the last two months working with the feds. I know how the operate. I’m miles ahead of you on this. Okay? I can do this.

ELLIOT

What’s your angle?

DARLENE

My angle is you trust me.

ELLIOT

You gotta promise me. Any sign of trouble, you bail. Even if we do this, do you really think it’ll make a difference? I mean the whole world has gone to shit. And we did that. All we can do now is rebuild. At least that’s a start.

DARLENE

And the Dark Army? You think they’re just gonna be painting each other’s toenails while we go and undo everything they’ve worked for?

ELLIOT

You just worry about getting into Sentinel. Let me worry about the Dark Army.

CUT TO:

INT. MOVING CAR #3.09.10#

Irving takes a customer on a test drive.

IRVING

Believe me now? Lovely lady like you with a Taurus? I don’t think so. It’s not a good fit. But this baby, huh? It’s nice. Bang a left up here. I hear you’re looking to barter a TAG Heuer?

TEST-DRIVER

My ex-husband’s. I’m sure we can arrange a deal.

IRVING

And I really want to feel you pump the gas here. Let her open up. Yeah? Doesn’t that feel good?

Alarm dings

TEST-DRIVER

Oh. Is this supposed to--

They pull over.

TEST-DRIVER

I think it’s dead.

IRVING

You know what? Coast her to the shoulder here on the left. I’ll check things out. Onboard computer’s so smart, it probably senses something.

ELliot gets in.

IRVING

What are you doing?

ELLIOT

You know what to do.

IRVING

Tell you what, why don’t you stroll on back to the lot, peruse those Sonatas. I’ll meet you there in a second. Go ahead. I’m right behind you.

She exits the car.

ELLIOT

I called OnStar and the cops are on their way, so we don’t have much time. I need you to set a meet.

IRVING

Look kid, I already told you, we’re done--

ELLIOT

Stage Three.

IRVING

What the fuck is Stage Three?

ELLIOT

Just do what you do and set the meet with Whiterose.

IRVING

Since when do I take orders from you?

ELLIOT

If you don’t move on this, it’ll be on you to tell your employer why you fucked with their timeline.

He exits.

INT. BAR #3.09.11#

Dom’s at the bar, Darlene joins.

DARLENE

Hey.

DOM

You’re late.

DARLENE

I’m surprised you agreed to meet. Thought you weren’t allowed one-on-ones.

DOM

Technically, you’re not a source anymore, so I’ll classify this as a social meet. But I suggest you get to the point of why you called.

DARLENE

First, how about a peace offering? Shots?

DOM

You said you had something to tell me. So talk or this is over.

DARLENE

I’ve been thinking about our last conversation. Especially after Everything with Trenton and Mobley, and you were right. There are things I haven’t told you.

DOM

I’m listening.

DARLENE

Okay, well, how does this work? Is this off the record, or am I fucking my own immunity?

DOM

Depends.

DARLENE

Everything you said, you were on point. Whiterose was behind everything. Five/Nine, the Dark Army were our partners. They handled the Chinese side, we took care of it over here.

DOM

And Whiterose, did you talk to him?

DARLENE

There was a middle man.

DOM

If the Dark Army was involved, then Whiterose had to greenlight it. Would you be willing to go on the record about what you know?

DARLENE

If I testified You know what the Dark Army’s capable of.

DOM

Darlene, you gotta rethink this. We can protect you, we’ll make things right. Tyrell’s walking free, and your friends are dead. Do it for them!

DARLENE

Fine. I gotta use the bathroom.

Angela sits on the stoop of Elliot’s building.

PA SYSTEM

This is a reminder that today’s city-wide curfew begins at 9:00 p.m. this evening through 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. Stay indoors and off the streets.

ANGELA

This is proof. It’s finally happening. We’re going back to the way things should be.

ELLIOT

Angela, I want to help you, but you got to explain to me what you think is happening.

ANGELA

I can’t tell you that. Only Whiterose can do that.

ELLIOT

Whiterose manipulated you. She exploited your feelings about your mom, and used them against you. That’s what she does.

ANGELA

I thought that you wanted our parents back.

ELLIOT

That’s never going to happen.

ANGELA

That’s because you don’t understand. We can’t talk here. There are people that are trying to stop this. Let’s go inside.

CUT TO:

INT. BAR #3.09.14#

Darlene back with Dom. Tits up.

DARLENE

I know this may sound like bullshit, but I’m sorry I was such a pain in the ass. The pressure of trying to find Tyrell and lying to my brother, and secluding myself in that apartment, just feeling lonely as shit, I guess it was just too much. So this is my long-winded way of saying I don’t think I have it in me to testify. Maybe I’m not as cool and collected as I put on.

DOM

I get the front you put up. It’s a trick I use myself.

DARLENE

You are an FBI agent, yet somehow I feel like you’re the only one I can trust.

DOM

Maybe that’s because you can.

DARLENE

Yeah. Maybe so. Okay, well, I hope the intel helped. Sorry I couldn’t do more.

DOM

You’re leaving?

DARLENE

Thanks for the drink, and for listening.

DOM

Wait, you want another? On me?

DARLENE

So you still single? Wow! Jumping right into this conversation again. Haven’t you learned my social game isn’t my strong suit? Well, I’m willing to bet you’ve got some untapped talent. What’s your type?

DOM

Where are you going with this?

DARLENE

Well, I am one hell of a wingwoman, okay? So let’s pick you out one of these lovelies here. What about that ginger? What, are you not into fire crotch? Hypocrite.

DOM

Dye job.

DARLENE

Fine. Goth hipster in the corner?

DOM

Identity issues.

DARLENE

Oh, okay. Ooh, what about that? Oh, my God. Barkeep! Another round.

Angela and Elliot walk into his apartment. Leon is sitting on his couch waiting for him.

LEON

‘Sup, cuz? Oh, shit. Sorry, dude. Don’t let me interrupt your flow or anything, I mean I didn’t know you had a female caller.

ANGELA

Who’s he? This is why you’re asking about our plan, isn’t it?

ELLIOT

Angela.

ANGELA

You’ve been trying to listen to me, haven’t you? Did you hear me? Did you hear what we were saying out there?

LEON

I’ve just been sitting here, smoking these trees, girl. I don’t know what the fuck you talking about.

ANGELA

You’re trying to trap me. Aren’t you?

ELLIOT

(whispering)

Angela. You have to leave. Get out now, trust me.

ANGELA

You’ve been trying to trick me. That’s why you wanted me to explain everything. It’s you who’s trying to stop our plan. I thought you were on my side.

LEON

Dude, your girl’s trippin’. Look, I don’t know what you guys got going on, and I’m sorry, sweetheart, but we really ain’t got the time right now. We got business to attend to, and she-she gotta go, bro. One way or another.

ANGELA

Don’t worry, I’m leaving. You’re not going to get any more information out of me.

Angela walks out. Elliot closes the door behind her.

INT. TYRELL’S #3.09.16#

The three men sit around the table.

PRICE

I am here mainly as a formality, Wellick, to fake a smile and pretend to welcome you back. You have been appointed CTO at E Corp.

TYRELL

I don’t know what to say. Thank you. You coming here personally--

PRICE

Yes, yes. Right, right. But the direct purpose of my visit I felt it was important to share with you formally that the CTO title is nothing more than that. You are a mere figurehead I inherited from a deal gone wrong. It happens from time to time. But I wanted you to understand the nature of your position in case you should have loftier designs. There’ll be none of that. Obedience will be your only task at my company. I worry that could potentially get awkward if you thought differently, so I came here out of respect. By your silence, I assume you accept this position?

TYRELL

I know what this is. You’re embarrassed that you fired me. There’s no shame in admitting the truth. You’re out of moves and your company needs me. E Corp needs my image, the face of a hero. That’s why you’re here.

PRICE

Oh, Wellick, Wellick. It’s not that I’m out of moves. It’s that you’re not worth one. See you at the office, mm?

MR. ROBOT

Five/Nine, fsociety. You knew the entire time, didn’t you?

PRICE

Five/Nine, yes. Well, not all the minutiae, of course. But since the cyber bombings, the breadcrumbs haven’t been that difficult to follow. World catastrophes like this, they aren’t caused by lone wolves like you. They occur because men like me allow them. You just happened to stumble into one of them.

MR. ROBOT

No, no. I ran the operation. I pushed the button. I am the one--

PRICE

There you go again. “I, I, I” You’re still thinking like a lone wolf.

MR. ROBOT

Why don’t you tell me how I should be thinking?

PRICE

Like a leader!

MR. ROBOT

I am a leader!

PRICE

Then where are your followers? You can’t force an agenda, Mr. Alderson. You have to inspire one.

DARLENE

Nice digs.

DOM

Remember, I only let you in because you said you’re not into girls.

DARLENE

No, I said I wasn’t a lesbian, end quote. I didn’t say I wasn’t into girls.

DOM

Very clever.

DARLENE

How about that nightcap?

DOM

Right, but only one. I gotta work in the morning, and you gotta get home before curfew.

DARLENE

Screw curfew. Hey, that rhymes. An E Kit? God, I can’t believe you bought into that shit. You can never be too prepared.

DOM

Such a Girl Scout. You think that’s Girl Scout-y? Check this out. Alexa, give me the daily Five/Nine.

ALEXA

Hello, and welcome to your daily Five/Nine report. Officials advise to stay away from the Upper East Side, where armed theft is at peak levels.

DARLENE

Impressive. What else does that thing do?

DOM

Alexa, play John Prine.

ALEXA

Shuffling songs by John Prine.

DOM

That’s better.

DARLENE

Why you didn’t go after that blonde is beyond me. She was mint.

DOM

Wasn’t meant to be.

DARLENE

Whatevs. You didn’t even try.

DOM

Jesus H., I think I’m drunk. But it’s Probably a good thing, ‘cause I have like legit trouble sleeping. I take melatonin, but I gotta down, like, six of them to even get drowsy, and then--

Darlene kisses Dom.

DOM

What was that?

DARLENE

It’s cool.

DOM

No, it’s No, it’s not. What am I doing? This isn’t professional.

DARLENE

Dude, you said it yourself. I’m not a source anymore. Believe it or not, I’m actually a real person.

DOM

Darlene, seriously.

DARLENE

All right. Fine. I’m sorry, it’s just I like you.

DOM

You’re drunk.

DARLENE

Come on, at least give me more credit than that.

DOM

Wait, hold on. Um, one second.

Dom opens her safe and takes off her gun and badge.

DARLENE

You could’ve kept the gun on. Don’t overthink this.

We have to get moving. We’re not safe here. I have to warn her. She has to know what they heard. I could just get on the subway, she’ll find us like before. She’ll protect us.

TV

Since the cyber bombings, there’s been a wave of backlash against the FBI from Americans of all backgrounds and political views The one thing we heard over and over from those Was the sentiment that our law enforcement agencies can no longer be trusted.

GRANT

I hear you have some information on Stage Three.

ELLIOT

I need my laptop. It has my plans.

GRANT

It’s fine. We can pull everything we need from there. Why don’t you have a seat? Your password. The first time you and I met to discuss the E Corp hack, you said this was a two-step plan. So I’m sure you can imagine my surprise when out of the blue, I now hear there is a third. So, Mr. Alderson, why don’t you tell me what it is you want?

ELLIOT

I asked for a meet with Whiterose.

GRANT

I’ll relay any messages to her.

ELLIOT

I need to speak with her directly.

GRANT

You’ve had all the time you’ll ever get with Whiterose.

ELLIOT

I thought she wanted to kill E Corp.

GRANT

Yes, I believe that’s what we did.

ELLIOT

No, E Coin didn’t exist when we first created this plan. Now it’s the only thing keeping them afloat. It’s becoming the world standard. And E Corp’s entire existence relies upon it.

GRANT

So what do you propose we do?

ELLIOT

If you truly want to end them, eliminating E Coin is the only way.

GRANT

Mr. Alderson, is this everything that you came to discuss with me? Anything else on your mind?

ELLIOT

Are you in or out?

Good-bye, Mr. Alderson.

Tyrell has been drinking. Mr. Robot is pacing.

TYRELL

Well, you were right. Everything we did was what they wanted.

MR. ROBOT

Exactly. Whiterose, Price, and who the fuck knows who else?

TYRELL

I’m a prisoner, just like before.

MR. ROBOT

Where does that leave me?

TYRELL

What am I supposed to do? The CTO position is worthless. You heard him.

MR. ROBOT

We can use it. You see how they operate? In the shadows. You just settle in, smile, nod. When the time is right we’ll expose them. Do you get it now? E Corp, they might as well be a front for them! Whiterose, Price, their friends, they’re the ones we need to take down. We just need a launching pad. A place to begin, dig in. Find that vulnerability.

TYRELL

The FBI. The Dark Army has a man on the inside.

MR. ROBOT

I don’t understand.

How do you not understand? You were trying to hack me.

DARLENE

An FBI agent. And I already told you why.

DOM

Your bullshit’s not gonna fly!

SANTIAGO

Enough! You gonna fill me in?

DOM

Tell him.

DARLENE

Get fucked. Every time you guys get intel, one of my friends ends up dead. And Tyrell’s bullshit release was as pathetic as a dry hand job. Why should I trust you or anyone else here? The FBI is obviously in bed with the Dark Army.

SANTIAGO

Where’d you hear that?

DARLENE

Chew balls.

SANTIAGO

Just tell me. Why is she here?

DOM

She was in my home, attempting to steal my badge to get on Sentinel. Full disclosure, sir, we had relations tonight. I plan on self-reporting it to the OPR, I’m not keeping anything from the Bureau.

SANTIAGO

Do you have any idea how fucking big the crime you committed is? You can forget about immunity this time. And why the hell were you trying to get into Sentinel anyway?

DOM

You’re in too deep this time, Darlene. You gotta talk.

DARLENE

There are files in Sentinel that can help decrypt all of E Corp’s data. That means bringing everything back. The solution to undoing Five/Nine is in a machine on the other side of this floor, okay? They’re in Romero’s collection. Sit with me, look over my shoulder, I’ll even walk through it with your engineer, whatever. You guys can personally take the keys to E Corp and be the heroes, okay? You can fix everything. Isn’t that what you want? What you’ve been waiting for?

CUT TO:

INT. SANTIAGO’S OFFICE #3.09.24#

DOM

She’s right! Wasn’t this the point of our entire strategy?

SANTIAGO

You need to understand something--

DOM

This is the opportunity we’ve been chasing!

SANTIAGO

You’re missing the point.

DOM

We have nothing to lose. If she’s lying, we put her in jail, but if she’s not--

SANTIAGO

And what if our testimony gets thrown out because of your grossly unprofessional behavior? Sleeping with a CHS, for Chrissake.

DOM

She’s not a CHS anymore. And you know I didn’t break any rules. So what’s really happening here? Why not take her up on her offer?

SANTIAGO

Get back to your desk and write the 302 explaining your actions minute by minute. I’m assigning Agent Kaz to Darlene.

Dom leaves.

MINUTES LATER

Santiago calls Irving.

SANTIAGO

What’s the plan here? She talks like she knows everything.

Irving appears to be working on his novel.

IRVING

You sound stressed.

SANTIAGO

Of course I’m fucking stressed. I could be burnt. Meanwhile, she claims she can undo the hack.

IRVING

And where is she now?

SANTIAGO

Locked in a goddamn interview room.

IRVING

Okay.

whiterose is freaking out.

WHITEROSE

Not one box even packed? I suppose there’s some banal excuse why a month isn’t enough time for those lazy mules to get my project shipped to the Congo?

GRANT

Border security. Border security across the Eastern seaboard is restricted to levels we’ve never seen before.

WHITEROSE

Hence our extensive payroll. We own mayors, district attorneys, governors, fucking presidents!

GRANT

The country is operating under martial law. Our contacts are afraid. You’ve always asked that I be honest with you.

WHITEROSE

Speak.

GRANT

This is your fault. You blindly indulge all of Elliot Alderson’s whims. And it has landed us here. If you’d listened to me, if you believed in my strategy as much as you did his, we could have avoided this. We had the UN vote, these attacks weren’t necessary.

WHITEROSE

People like Phillip Price do not respect mercy. You only get their attention with force and a lot of it. That is the only currency with these men.

GRANT

I will go back to our partners with a more persuasive argument.

WHITEROSE

See? That’s all I needed to hear. And What now?

CUT TO:

INT. APT 4E #3.09.26#

Mr. robot reads about Sentinel before switching back to Elliot.

ELLIOT (V.O)

I keep looking at this note, wondering what Mr. Robot did last night. If the Dark Army does own the FBI, how did he find out? Does it matter? I don’t need him. Darlene will be checking in soon about Sentinel, and I have to enact Stage Three.

CUT TO:

INT. 4E #3.09.27#

Elliot hacks.

CUT TO:

INT. WHITEROSE’S ROOM #3.09.28#

GRANT

Mr. Alderson is claiming there is a third stage. He wants to target E Corp. But I’m sure you knew all along there is no Stage Three.

WHITEROSE

A third stage. Odd. That wasn’t part of our original plan, was it?

GRANT

No.

WHITEROSE

So what do you make of that?

GRANT

His sister is currently being held at the FBI. Claiming she can decrypt E Corp’s data. I can’t help but notice their actions are incongruous. He’s lying to us. I don’t think their target is E Corp anymore. I think it’s us.

CUT TO:

INT. 4E #3.09.29#

ELLIOT (V.O.)

When the Dark Army operatives’ malware copies my file to their command and control server Get yourself back to work. It’ll be queued up for an operator to review its contents. Once opened, my exploit will give me full access to their management interface.

CUT TO:

INT. WHITEROSE’S ROOM #3.09.30#

GRANT

Why the dismay? We expected something like this out of him, did we not?

WHITEROSE

You never understood my commitment to Mr. Alderson. You say that I was wrong to order the attack. Maybe I’m wrong about him as well. So tell me, what would you do if you had your way?

CUT TO:

INT. WAREHOUSE #3.09.31#

ELLIOT

And now I own the Dark Army.

CUT TO:

INT. WHITEROSE’S ROOM #3.09.32#

GRANT

Do you remember when you said Elliot will one day follow in the footsteps of his father? I think it’s time he died for us too.
