The Mr. Robot season two finale is here and everyone is screwed. The fallout from the hack in the first season has claimed a few lives and sent the survivors scrambling, to the degree that just about everyone who still has a pulse is in real danger of losing his or her life or freedom by the end of the final hour. Some characters are in more trouble than others, though, so what I’m going to do here is attempt to rank them from least to most in trouble at this very moment. The key word here is “attempt,” because if we’ve all learned anything from two seasons of this show, it’s that, usually, your assumptions are about as useful as a used napkin.
