Yeah, I have no idea what they were thinking with those Darlene/Dominique scenes. Dominique was already probably my least favorite character. But 95% of the airport scene felt just like filling time. And the cringe pop music they used at a certain point. The only good moments were seeing Irving again, for a short chat, and Leon.
That episode should've been heavily edited and all of those scenes probably removed or replaced with something better.
It's very jarring, that episode, as I think it's the only one I really have a serious issue with. It's very jarring to have that in a sea of mostly excellent episodes.
Dominique was probably my least favorite as well. I didn't like the character or the actress. She has zero on-screen charisma.
You asked me about episode 7.
I liked it, but I agree about the revelation. It did seem kind of cliche. I also didn't care for the way Vera met his end. I thought it was a little far-fetched.
Season 3 had more scenes that were memorable to me.
Like the end of the first episode where Angela is explaining her motivations to Mr Robot while they're riding the subway. Everything about that scene was perfect. Also, the entirety of episodes 5 & 6 and the season finale.
