This week on Mr. Robot, Elliot developed a human connection with a woman named Olivia Cortez — a very rare occurrence for the man.
For anyone who thought that Olivia looked familiar, that is because she is a second-generation acting talent and her father is a very famous actor.
Here is a look at Olivia Cortez on Mr. Robot and the woman who portrayed her.
Olivia Cortez on Mr. Robot
Elliot set out to get information on Whiterose and he learned about a bank employee who is Susan Jacob’s contact at Cyprus National Bank, managing the U.S. accounts for Whiterose and her fronts unknowingly.
Elliott breaks into Olivia’s home to get the information from her computer but learns he needs a security fob she keeps on herself at all times.
As a result, Elliot decides to steal OcyContin from her apartment and blackmail her, threatening to report her to the police and ruin her custody agreement for her child.
Thankfully, Mr. Robot steps in and takes over Elliot to stop him.
See, Olivia had a tough life and became an addict, considering suicide at one point. This could have finally ended her. But, instead, Mr. Robot created a human connection and Olivia and Elliot had a one night stand.
Elliot got the information he needed when she fell asleep, but he also connected with another human on a personal level — a triumph for his redemption story.
