1. “Smithereens”

Finally, the most intriguing of them all, “Smithereens.” From the trailer, it’s the most action-packed of the three, yet there is still plenty of mystery to wonder about. Read the official synopsis for the episode “Smithereens,” below:

"A cab driver with an agenda becomes the center of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control."

“Smithereens” stars  Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, and Topher Grace. The clip begins with a cab driver calmly listening to meditation audio. He is apparently very stressed and in need of relaxation, because it doesn’t take long for viewers to see him go from peaceful to insane. What’s his trigger?

Once the driver learns his passenger works at a place called Smithereens, he seems to lose control of himself. The driver takes an alternate route and pulls a gun on the passenger in a village in London.

What is Smithereens and why is it such a big trigger for him? The driver also shouts “everywhere you look people are hooked on the things!” What exactly are the “things”? Phones? It has to be some sort of tech, this is Black Mirror, after all. What are your theories?

We may have an issue trusting Uber after this ride!

Black Mirror Season 5 launches June 5 only on Netflix.
