Dom finds Tyrell's hideout at the restaurant, but just misses him. Meanwhile, Elliot goes to the Stage 2 target building to prevent the explosion from the inside, even though Mr. Robot constantly delays him and makes Elliot attack himself. Darlene confronts Angela, threatening to report her to the FBI, but Angela insists nobody will be hurt. Elliot convinces Mr. Robot to help when they realize the paper records are not in the building. Dom sees Tyrell get arrested in public, screaming for them to stop the attack. Believing he has stopped Stage 2, Elliot is pondering Whiterose's true plan when he sees reports of explosions at the 71 E-Corp facilities to which he redirected the paper records, leaving thousands dead. Elliot realizes that he is responsible for the increased magnitude of Stage 2.|

|Elliot runs to Krista and Mr. Robot makes her realize Elliot may actually be involved. Darlene is unsettled by Angela's delusion that the dead will still be alright and come back. Irving makes Mr. Robot realize his entire revolution only occurred because the elite allowed it. Zhang plans to move the Washington Township plant to the Congo; Zhang ruined Price as punishment for his disobedience and for not controlling Angela and the lawsuit and now intends to select his replacement. Leon kills Mobley's friend and makes Mobley and Trenton help bury the body in the desert. Returning home, they are met by Zhang's assistant and Dark Army agents. Tyrell plays the part of captive, despite Dom's disbelief. Tyrell identifies the leaders of fsociety who are planning another attack within 24 hours as the two suspects being revealed to the public. Agent Santiago reveals Joanna's death and threatens Tyrell's son if Tyrell goes off the plan. The Dark Army shows Mobley and Trenton code for an attack on air traffic control and forces them to shoot themselves in the head. Dom watches the raid find the two bodies that tie fsociety to Iran. A stunned Dom believes the true mastermind, Whiterose, will actually get away with it.|

|Elliot tells Darlene that nothing, from drugs to therapy to voluntarily placing himself in jail, is keeping Mr. Robot at bay, saying that the world falling apart around him is his fault. He puts his affairs in order by giving his dog to his neighbor, throwing his Mr. Robot jacket away, and going to Trenton and Mobley's families to pay his respects. Elliot buys a lethal amount of morphine pills and heads to Coney Island to commit suicide, but is deterred by Mohammad, Trenton's younger brother, whom Elliot is forced to look after when his parents leave him alone. After Mohammad leaves a movie that Elliot takes him to and goes to a mosque, he is confronted by Elliot, who admits that he wishes he was dead. After dropping Mohammad back off at his home, he goes to Angela's apartment and reminds her of a "wishing game" they used to play as kids, which gives Elliot the will to live. After arriving home, getting the jacket back, and reinstalling his computer, he notices a message sent from Trenton before her death saying that there is a way to undo the hack.|

|Mr. Robot goes to Tyrell's home, where they both meet Price who announces Tyrell will be the figurehead as the new CTO. Tyrell realizes he is still the Dark Army's puppet but they have a weakness in the FBI. Elliot resurfaces, reading Mr. Robot's message about the connection. Trenton's email reveals Romero kept the encryption keys of Five/Nine which could reverse everything and are now inside the FBI. Darlene seduces Dom but is caught trying to get her badge. Angela is still deluded, believing in Whiterose's plan to undo everything and no longer trusting Elliot; men pick Angela up. Darlene tells the truth to the FBI, also stating she knows the Dark Army owns them. Santiago panics and calls Irving. Through Irving and Leon, Elliot meets with Zhang's assistant for a fake Stage 3; their scan of his laptop gives him access to the Dark Army. Whiterose is outraged that moving the plant to Congo will take a month. She gives permission for Elliot to die.|

|Dom, alongside Darlene, is kidnapped by Santiago after discovering his double-agent status. Irving tracks down Elliot and brings him to an isolated barn, where Dom and Darlene are also brought. Santiago and Dom join Irving outside where it seems Dom is to be executed by Irving. Irving instead kills Santiago and forces Dom to be the mole inside the FBI by threatening her family. Inside the barn, Whiterose’s assistant Grant prepares to kill Elliot and Darlene. Elliot devises a plan to move Whiterose’s plant to the Congo sooner, an outcome Whiterose considers impossible. Elliot tells Whiterose, who is watching online, that he can do this, and she allows him to as she forces Grant to kill himself while Leon kills the other Dark Army agents present. Elliot succeeds in moving the plant, and the ordeal comes to an end with Elliot, Darlene, and Dom all safe. Darlene tries apologising to Dom for all the problems she has caused for her, but Dom refuses to accept the apology out of hatred. Dom then gives Elliot access to the FBI where he learns that Romero wasn’t responsible for the encryption keys, but instead Mr. Robot was as it is what Elliot would want. The two make peace and vow to bring down the true villains of the world as Elliot reverses Five/Nine. Meanwhile, Angela is brought to Phillip Price’s house, where he reveals to her that he is her actual father and convinces her of Whiterose’s villainous nature. In a post-credits scene, Darlene is confronted by Vera in front of Elliot’s apartment.|
