This week’s episode of Mr. Robot had an usual start, more unusual than usual. The episode begins with Elliot, Darlene and their parents in a 90s style sitcom. ALF makes an appearance, yes you read correctly, ALF, and he even runs over and kills Gideon! Gideon is, of course, not Gideon in this 90s episode, instead he is a cop who is looking for a family that has a person locked up in their trunk. Elliot’s family is the family that has someone locked up in their trunk — Tyrell! Vulture wrote a nice article explaining how this scene came to be and how this was Mr. Robot’s way of distracting Elliot from all of the pain he is in in real life.
