That was great. I wouldn't be opposed to the odd episode sans Elliot going forward, plenty of other great characters that I feel like we don't get to spend enough time with.

Not read any of the thread so far, but having discussed this show in very broad, non-spoilery terms on the podcast twice now I felt it was time to give it a go.

Yeah it's pretty bloody good isn't it.

Still on season one but I've watched the first eight eps over two days and I'm in love with it. Really enjoy how it plays with your perceptions of what's real and what's not. It's managed to overturn my expectations at least twice now. Gonna finish off season one tomorrow then start 2 at the weekend I think.
Check out some of our stuff!

Watched 8 first episodes.

Still haven't grabbed me so yeah, I don't think this is for me. It's so dull.

And the main guy's blank expression make the whole thing boring. :lol:

At least I've gave this a fair crack. Most people would have given up after first two or three episodes.

Holy hell, this week's episode was tense as strawberry float. :o

RIP Cisco :cry: Definitely saw a big puff of cgi blood from his side of the table when the biker opened fire. Looked like Darlene survived.

Also, did Angela just sell Elliot out?


Another bloody cliffhanger. :x

Also, saw this on GAF.

Mild season 2 spoilers.

Great episode this week. The music was ace.

Minor spoilers if you're not caught up:

I can't help but feel the Dark Army take something away from the show, however. The first season felt so realistic and grounded, then to suddenly have this secret organisation that is basically tantamount to the Illuminati, with members that are so dedicated they'll instantly kill themselves rather than being captured, it just feel a little out of place.

1st part of the 2 part finale tonight, "Mr Robot finale: 11 questions that need to be answered" -

Did Darlene and Cisco survive the shootout in the diner?
Dom was covered in blood when she ran out, so someone got shot – but who? And what was Dom saying to them before the shooting? We wouldn’t be surprised if the finale opened with the diner scene retold from another angle.

What clue was in Elliot’s apartment?
The bold and brilliant scene in which Elliot asked us to help him find an Easter egg hidden in his apartment wasn’t just an enjoyably meta comment on how Mr Robot turns its viewers into conspiracy theorists – it was also a chance to actually solve many of the show’s biggest mysteries. Of course, we failed miserably. If you had more luck, please give us your theories in the comments.

Why has Mr Robot vanished?
The show has a habit of throwing in one twist to obscure another. This time it seems like the prison twist might have been used to hide Mr Robot’s true intentions from us. What is he hiding from us (and Elliot)? Why has he been cultivating Elliot’s trust throughout this season? Is he trying to take over?

Is Tyrell Wellick really dead – and if he is, who’s making those phone calls?
Ever since Mr Robot told Elliot that he shot Tyrell Wellick – “shot”, not killed – most of the internet has been more convinced than ever that Wellick is alive.

Now Elliot has tracked the location of the phone that Joanna Wellick’s mysterious calls were coming from, but Joanna’s bodyguard is convinced that the calls couldn’t have come from that address. So what is that address? Is it Joanna’s home, and we’re in a “the call’s coming from inside the house!” situation? Or is it the address of another character we know?

And if it’s not Tyrell on the other end of that phone, then who would benefit from tormenting Joanna with those phone calls? Was her lover (who seems to have been entirely forgotten) involved?

What happened to Trenton and Mobley?
The FBI don’t have them – Dom confirmed in this episode that they lost Sunil Markesh, which is Mobley’s real name. Does the Dark Army have them or did they get away?

What is phase two?
We know it’s Elliot’s plan, but beyond that – not a clue. We know that Elliot is important to the Dark Army – they had Leon protect him in prison, after all – but we don’t know why. What can Elliot offer them that they can’t do themselves? Does it have something to do with the Washington Township plant? Speaking of which …

Why is the Washington Township plant so important to Whiterose and Phillip Price?
And is it important to the Chinese government or the Dark Army, both of which Whiterose represents? Price is willing to give China the Democratic Republic of Congo just to keep that plant going. It’s obviously hugely important. Why it’s important, though, is still a mystery.

Who were those people who intercepted Angela on the Subway?
Were they police/FBI catching up to her, as Dom warned her they would? Were they E Corp people, arriving to plug the leak (presumably they know by now that she tried to blow the whistle)? Or were they Dark Army thugs, keen to make sure she doesn’t confess and potentially incriminate anyone else?

Who killed Romero?
This is the mystery that kicked off season two: it sent fsociety into a panic, and it put Dom on their heels. But was he really killed by the Dark Army, considering that we now know that they were actively protecting Elliot in prison? Could Romero’s death be entirely unrelated to hacking? He was a drug dealer too – that could have been the reason he was killed. Or maybe it was something Mr Robot (or Tyrell Wellick) did in those missing three days?

Might Dom work with fsociety to hook an even bigger fish?
She’s had two shootouts with the Dark Army henchmen, and one lengthy bonding session with Whiterose. She didn’t realise she was talking to Whiterose, but “Minister Zheng” certainly gave away enough to raise her suspicions.

IS ANY OF THIS REAL?!?
As always with Mr Robot, it’s best to take what you see with a hefty pinch of paranoia. Season two could end with the most annoying unsatisfactory “it was all a dream” ending since Once Upon a Time in America.

Can someone explain to me what the strawberry float just happened? :lol: The entire episode, please, from start to finish. I've never been so confused watching anything in my life.

That was maybe the first episode of this show that I didn't enjoy. The Angela & Dom stuff was so strawberry floating plodding, only the Elliot stuff was good. I used to like Angela before they replaced her with an emotionless robot. I really hope the finale pays off next week.

However, Wellick! strawberry floating finally! :mrgreen: Was all the BttF music just a reference to him or is there another reason for it?

This is basically what I was going to post. It looked especially bad compared to last weeks cracker.

It was supposed to be a double episode this week to end the season, but they must have changed their mind and delayed the second half, which would explain why it felt weird.
I'm sure the episode works fine as a part of the whole season, but not when you've waited a week for it and have to wait another week for the next one.

Anyone else notice the musical Back to the Future references in this weeks episode?

The music when Angela was in the van and the final bit with Elliot and Tyrell


Edit: apparently so.

That was a decent finale and in fairness it answered almost all of the questions in Monkey Man's post above. strawberry floating LOVED the fakeout reveal. :lol: After all the rumours and gooseberry fool flying around I'm glad it went the way it did. Although none of it explained why Tyrell had to be absent the whole season. :|

Still massively frustrated by the way it ended, though. :x Another strawberry floating year to wait. :fp:
