Elliot and Krista escape her apartment before Fernando Vera's homies Peanuts and Javi return and find his body. Krista heads to the police station, but Elliot follows a younger version of himself to the Queens Museum. There, he finds his father's key to his childhood bedroom, now remembering he had hidden it in one of the walls as his way of fighting back. An hour before the Deus Group is set to meet, Mr. Robot apologizes to Elliot for failing to protect him. Elliot admits he created him to be the father he needed. Elliot breaks down as Mr. Robot comforts him. Janice binds both Darlene and Dominique, ordering Darlene to restore her phone so that she can find Elliot. Janice stabs Dominique, telling Darlene to give up Elliot or Dominique will die. Janice calls her team, threatening to kill Dominique's family members. Darlene gives in, asking for her phone. Janice's men fail to find Elliot at Krista's apartment. She calls her team outside Trudy's house, but no one answers the phone. Janice learns that Dominique sent Deegan Maguire and the Irish mob to rescue her family and take them to a safe house, killing the Dark Army agents in the process. While Janice is distracted, Dominique manages to shoot her in the head. Dominique calls for backup and tells Darlene to find Elliot.
