Elliot goes missing in this week's episode of Mr. Robot! Episode 7 titled 'eps1.6_v1ew-s0urce.flv' that airs this Wednesday, 5 August.
The official synopsis of the upcoming episode reads: "Elliot will go missing while Mr. Robot tries to pull fsociety back together. Meanwhile, Angela will go head to head with an old nemesis."
Elliot going off the grid might have something to do with his girlfriend Shayla's murder, which happened in the previous episode. But will it lead to him quitting fsociety? That remains to be seen.
In the promo video of episode 7, Elliot is seen handling a powdery substance, which may indicate that he's going back to abusing drugs. Although he did not use any substances in the last couple of episodes, the devastating loss of Shayla could have pushed him back on the dark path, states a Fashion & Style report.
