Origin of the Title

In a flashback to her childhood, Angela promises Edward to keep an eye out for Elliot, and her dying mother Emily promises to see her again. Back in the present, Angela ignores Elliot's accusations and forcibly dismisses him. Elliot realizes the Dark Army hideout is at Red Wheelbarrow BBQ, and passes the information to Dom through Darlene. Dom informs Santiago of the hideout, but he refuses to let them go there and secretly tells Irving to take care of Tyrell. Dom and Norm disobey Santiago and go to the hideout to investigate, while Tyrell refuses to follow Irving's instructions after he realizes he has been used by the Dark Army. Elliot heads to the data recovery center to stop Stage 2. Mr. Robot tries to stop him, but helps him after he realizes that the center doesn't have any paper records. Tyrell tries to warn the public about the attack, but is detained by the FBI. Darlene confronts Angela about her involvement with the Dark Army, but Angela is confident there will be no casualties. Elliot stops the center from exploding with Mr. Robot's help, but is only aware of Whiterose's true plan after he finds out that 71 other facilities holding the paper records have exploded due to his attempts to stop Stage 2.
The VHS tapes next to the TV in Angela's flashback scene are labeled with films such as Pump Up the Volume(which also stars Christian Slater), The Lost Boys, She's Out of Control, and Pretty Woman.
A poster on the subway car scene with Angela advertises a stage play called Repulsion starring Kaitlyn Doubleday, who is the sister of Angela's actress Portia Doubleday.
