Really great opening episode to the season. It still feels weird seeing Wellick to a great degree after being missing for so long in season two.

Wacky, kind of dumb theory where the show is going:

I think they're basically trying to do The Matrix? With Angela talking about thinking it's now possible to have everything reset before her mum and Elliot's dad died I think they're trying to explore the possibility of mind uploading and transhumanism on a widespread scale.

Mr Robot and White Rose are early experiments in this, with Elliot's dad's consciousness uploaded into a young Elliot and Zheng actually having a sister who was uploaded into him and lives as White Rose. She's able to handle this better by knowingly coexisting and living as a transgender woman compared to Elliot/Mr Robot. That second part might be a kind of gross way to unnecessarily try to 'explain' why White Rose lives as a transgender woman though.

The end goal I guess being to use people as data storage to enable longevity and dream worlds? Maybe even clones judging by that weird as strawberry float thing with that little girl who looks like a young Angela.

I was thinking it was hinting at something like that. I hope it was planned from the start, if so. Each season has had some big twist on the perception of reality, so it makes sense the entire show would, too.

I like how they included Theresa May in the montage shots of the world going to hell. :lol:

Episode 5 is intense! Would love to know how you even go about putting together an episode like that. Must take so much work.

Yeah it was a cool episode. I didn't consciously realise it was meant to be a single take until about 20 minutes in, but I definitely 'felt' it. This show is just so visually interesting.

Finale tomorrow, and it's just been renewed for season 4! Hopefully there's no cliffhanger like at the end of season 2 this time around :dread:

Last episode was pretty beasting. This show really gives the impression that everything has been planned out from day one, love it. Probably the best show on TV just now. It's just so cool as well.

I can't believe it actually took them until the middle of season 3 to properly resolve the cliffhanger at the end of season 1. :lol:

Finale :o

Do you think they timed it deliberately to release on the same day as Star Wars with Angela's Luke Skywalker moment? :shifty:

That's gotta be the longest post credits scene ever, too.

Amazing soundtrack choices again :wub:

I thought this as it happened. :lol:

Kind of a deus ex machina when Leon just shot everyone, a little bit annoying. I was hoping someone important would die, or Elliot would inexplicably fight his way out. Anyway,
good finale.

Just binged through season 3. Loved it!
There just so much detail and none of it is wasted, it all has purpose. Visually it is unsurpassed, every frame is meticulously crafted. The story is structured in a way that keeps you guessing and it's just so interesting to watch.

Apparently we are just over halfway through the original film script, so I'm guessing there's a couple more seasons left yet.

I read an interview with Sam Esmail where he says that 'Stage 2' happening was the midpoint of his original film script. He later realised it would work better as a TV show and so re-wrote it for TV.

Apparently not! :(

Mr. Robot’s fourth season will be its last

After three seasons, Mr. Robot is getting ready to finish up. The show’s fourth season will be its last, according to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter. The fourth season will air next year, and it has been expanded to 12 episodes from the initially planned eight-episode run.


At least they're not going to drag it out until it gets cancelled before giving any closure.

Does anything of significance actually get cancelled any more? Generally feels like TV shows outstay their welcome much more often than get cancelled before their plots are resolved.

Probably for the best that it bows out by telling one, really good story and leaving it at that.
