This week on USA Network’s Mr. Robot (Wednesday, 10/9c), a potential successor to E(vil) Corp’s disgraced CTO whips himself into shape, quite literally.
In the acclaimed (and already renewed) drama’s premiere, CTO Terry Colby was framed and arrested for the massive DDoS attack on his own company, creating a void at the top of the tech team’s hierarchy. In the above sneak peek, SVP of Technology Tyrell Wellick (played by Swede Martin Wallström) rehearses a speech to the board, in which he attempts to not-too-coldly bid Colby good riddance while positioning himself as the logical replacement.
Wellick, you will see, is perhaps his harshest critic, and isn’t above a bit of self-harm to keep himself on message.
Elsewhere in Episode 3, titled “eps1.2_d3bug.mkv”: Elliot (Rami Malek) tries to lead a normal life, but can’t escape fsociety, while AllSafe CEO Gideon (Michel Gill) grows suspicious.
