18
Okay, all caught up. Ready to rock.
Oct 16th 2017
19
I think that's the only way to go
Oct 17th 2017
21
      Taking a sci-fi route would be a cop-out to me....
Oct 17th 2017
24
           I just wonder how they could reign in where we've gone
Oct 17th 2017
25
                season 2 was one of the greatest things on tv for me last yr
Oct 18th 2017
26
felt like a whirlwind
Oct 17th 2017
22
didn't realize the new season started
Oct 17th 2017
23
Well, that was instense
Oct 19th 2017

36

Oct 27th 2017
44
second episode basically made me look past all of season 2
Oct 21st 2017
33
Ep 3 was for everyone that hated S2.
Oct 26th 2017
38
I only partially understand the hate for S2....
Oct 26th 2017
39
Its cause it focused on Elliot's mental issues
Oct 26th 2017
41
      but the mental illness stuff was so well done
Nov 07th 2017
57
Yup
Oct 26th 2017
40
      Yeah that line Joey Badass had stood out hard.....
Oct 26th 2017

Oct 27th 2017
43
Caught up on this now
Nov 03rd 2017

So...Angela
Nov 05th 2017
46
She would be a good red herring but I think its true
Nov 06th 2017
47
ya im still torn, she could be N2DEEP tho
Nov 07th 2017
59
i think she maybe got exposed to (some of) WR's plans
Nov 07th 2017
54
I think Angela knows she can't get out so she's all in....
Nov 07th 2017
55
      im still in the camp this isnt gonna take some kind of wild
Nov 07th 2017
56

69
It was so well done
Nov 10th 2017

Nov 11th 2017

      Tyrell's been whining to be part of the main team
Nov 16th 2017
91
           What was up with him suddenly wanting to stop the attack
Nov 16th 2017
93
                I figure he knows cause Canavale was quite somber
Nov 16th 2017
94
                nope....I think Dark Army played Tyrell against himself.
Nov 17th 2017
95
                     i needed this thread
Nov 17th 2017
96
                Nah, I don't know what's up with Tyrell
Nov 18th 2017
99
                     i think the instructions were very specific
Nov 18th 2017

      thanks Big Reg for filling in some of the gaps

I was afraid for a bit the show took some of the season 2 critiques and was trying to overcorrect by toning shit down and going back to its roots

Elliot trying once again to undo some shit Mr.Robot did when he was in charge by hacking
Elliot looking like he's gonna be working corporate again to do work from the inside like Season 1
Elliot's revolution (Well, I guess de-revolution) speech with allegories to real life.

But nope, when Mr.Robot popped back in and the biggest double cross was revealed, along with Angela hinting there's a way to bring their parents back?

WE BACK TO FULL ON INSANE AND I LOVE IT.

Lets get weird ladies and gents.

and is now actively working as the FBI's snitch.

She asked Eliot nothing but snitchy questions. The FBI was only visible in locations where she was. And Dom wasn't in this episode at all.

She's been threading water as a character for a minute. At least her almost dying in the assassination attempt explains her being skittish/not knowing her place in the world now.

I hope its just the show fucking with us, or a longer con. I wanted to see Dom bring em down on her own terms, not just generic recorded wires

to make them think its all good while not actually ratting on elliot

the only real thing she did was plant the device to read his screen AFTER (this is my theory) insuring she was triggering Mr. Robot to make sure he would figure out what she did and possibly retaliate

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

For the most part, Elliot was the most lucid and coherent he’s been since the show started. Also, the narrative was as straight forward and cogent as we’ve seen in quite some time. I found parts of season 2 pretentious and unnecessarily convoluted. It was nice to to see a straight forward episode for a change.

12. "I'm glad Eliot emerged lucid...."
In response to Reply # 11


  

          

because he can't run from his actions like he did for the majority of Season 2. Also, there's a possibility that no one in his circle is on his side anymore.....Angela's tied up with E Corp and the Dark Army, Mr. Robot is determined to carry out Stage 2, the FBI is moving on Darlene, and who knows what role Mobley and Trenton will play now that they're on the West Coast with Leon watching them.

Liked the first episode quite a bit. Bobby Canavale is a really good addition. Also liked that they're showing more of Slater/Mr. Robot directly interacting with people. The atmosphere that they created for even more post "apocalypse" NYC was also dope.

Seems like they're leaning very hard into the idea of undoing everything about 5/9 and even the deaths of Eliot and Angela's parents. I'm really hoping that they don't go the alternate reality/time travel route. But with all of White Lotus' obsession with time, it seems like a distinct possibility.

In response to Reply # 19


  

          

While I love E-Corp and the CEO and as the main antagonists it seems we are already moving away from that storyline with the Dark Army/White Rose.


On one hand since this wasn't explicitly a sci-fi show it does feel like it might be a cheap cop out; on the other hand they've done such a great job expanding the world from the original premise of the show I want em to push shit as far as they can.

It doesn't have to be sci-fi per say but we are gonna need a bigger herring than hacker trying to fix the world. After all we've seen when he was like, 'I need to get a job at E-corp to undo my latest hack' im like my nigga you already brought the US back to a third world electricity grid, cash is worthless, and the chinese are assassinating niggas in broad daylight...we've moved onto bigger and better storylines, LOL.

Right now it looks like we are moving into the unofficial prequel to Blade Runner and it's kinda cool...just hope they stick to the landing.

In response to Reply # 21


  

          

I would see this show as a missed opportunity if it tries to play with themes similar to shows like Black Mirror.....especially since Season 1 was so overt with its political ideology.

If Mr. Robot maintains the balance of paranoia, radical ideology, and technology I think this series will shape up as one of the greats.

Season 2 felt like a bunch of stalling where the creators probably didn't know exactly where they wanted to show to go so they boxed Eliot in while things happened in the background.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

The world got much much weirder; like in the background we went from us in 2015 internet hacktivism in season 1 to effectively a dystopic near future...we kinda already went sci fi in a way.

Obviously time travel/parallel universes...etc...is gonna be one hell of a ship to land if they actually go there(and trust me, I don't necessarily wanna go there...there are plenty of shows that mine those themes).

But I don't know if they can go back to hacking..they gonna have to get weirder and im there with them. While the Elliot stuff was slacking (perhaps intentionally so) I still found season 2 endlessly entertaining so im giving em the benefit of doubt.

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

was actually surprised at all the negative feedback during its run and the bullshit "sophomore slump" articles that were published leading up to season 3. this show works because of its creators' overindulgence. if they start reigning shit in or walking shit back, that would definitely hinder its status as one of the GOATs. Esmail's overall style is what drives this beast.

i say make shit even weirder. and with how this show plays with narrative, memory, reality and advanced technology, you could argue they've already laid the groundwork for a much more epic sci fi element to enter the story. none of which takes away from its commentary/ies on society.

I'm a little bummed the show moved away from the really radical ideology stuff in the beginning & became a show I feel like I've experienced before, I'm still on board. hoping the real life politics come into it, since they were sort of treading on almost decade old occupy memes

All of the episode, really, but of course the scene with Joanne in particular. Didn't see that coming so early in the season.

Also really liked intro set to INXS.

And of course Elliot knew the FBI was watching.

The first two seasons implied that people weren't always aware of when Eliot shifts into Mr. Robot. That scene where Eliot hemmed up Darlene makes me think he's snapped on her before. That was one of maybe two or three moments where Darlene looked like she was legit scared for her life.

The up close shot on Eliot's face and the voice modulation was really well done. It was very reminiscent of 'Until Dawn'.

53. "EPISODE 2 (spoilery)"
In response to Reply # 27


  

          

Been loving the cinematography. The shot of the new character getting into the car in EP1. The shot of the doc and Elliot from over the top of her crib in ep 2. The subway shots. Dom and the other FBI agent in front of Joanna skull open getting photographed. How they frame Philip and Whiterose...Just wonderful art shit

they are irritating me making Elliot slip into liberal centrist quac quac...

and I'm really upset they fell into the typical narrative arc of western arts that humans would just be turrbl to each other when something like this popped off... yet Hurricanes in PR and an Earthquake in Mexico yet again show us in real life humanity shows up when shit falls apart.

I hate that about western imagination when it comes to handling rebellion/resistance/revolution that aint hisotrical.

but yeah, this show greatness

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

that allowed their kid (or twins since most TV shows use twins when babies are shown on camera) to get used for that infamous SVU scene from last night? And while I'm certain the baby wasn't in the SUV when the shots ran out and was only in the baby seat when the camera panned to it, it was still pretty wild to see the fake blood dribbled on its face in the aftermath.

Also, was it just me, or was it difficult to tell exactly what was being shown when Joanna Wellick's head was being sawed into at first; the object shown on camera at first looked like a mushroom to me. Pretty wild how advertisers for USA Network are so cool with the wild content shown in Mr. Robot.

My main gripe was that all the detours took way too long. I feel like Esmail and the crew were lowkey stalling with the first half. Dom's arc and those last two-three episodes saved that season.

I really like how this season is taking its time with each character while showing exactly how Eliot/Mr. Robot operates in tandem. Hopefully, this season goes full throttle after next week since these episodes have been much slower with presenting the new plot points. The inevitable turn could be monstrous after seeing how many people are actually manipulating and prodding Eliot.

Like I can't be mad because while Elliot was out of the paint dealing with his mental stuff, everything that took place in real life was golden. White Rose went from a cool side character in the first season into the mega boss he is now, Dom's storyline was off the hook, etc. Id have to re-watch the first season but considering how often he was in the doctors office I bet you it wasn't that much of a deviation in Elliot being out of commission vs plot moving. Its just the stakes are so much higher it feels like treading water when really its the same old, same old.

When Elliot is able to harness Mr.Robot its curtains for everyone on some John Wick shit. He's got no friends or allies, I don't see anyone surviving this when he goes super saiyan, lol.

This episode was low key comedy; Cannavale literally being a used car salesman, Wellick fucking his hand up on some movie shit for his 'escape'.

I loved the two shoutouts to 2017 with White Rose being responsible for Trump and Badass on some, 'It felt good killing some neo-nazi's

I'm always down for extolling the virtues of killing Neo Nazis, but the Trump thing was kind of corny. Making everything horrible happening right now some part of a big conspiracy by White Rose and the Dark Army feels forced.

really good start to the season. Looks like another 10 episode season, glad they are keeping them short.

her behavior has drastically change since her meeting with WR, its almost bizarre



I honestly dont believe she was somehow converted/brainwashed

hell i dont even believe there is a "thing" that WR has shown her(if there is a thing it will be pulp fiction brief case territory)


i feel like shes trying to pull a similar move that she did with ecorp now that she knows WR and the DA are really responsible for WTP. (i believe its a terrible idea, because she seems to always have terrible plans but i believe she thinks shes doing the right thing)

what do yall think?

They broke her down pretty hard for the last two years and she seemed prime for membership in pretty much any cult that would throw her some eyes, lol. The thing is whatever the Mcguffin they set up as the 'true cause'' she got revealed to by white rose gotta be a doosy since she went all in immediately

In response to Reply # 46


  

          

ie. that particle accelerator type gizmo we saw a glimpse of earlier in the season. there's some theories floating around that it's not specifically time travel related, that it's more along the lines of a simulacra/matrix type situation (their world isn't all the way real).
Esmail pretty much ruled out introducing time travel at this point in the series, and other than paralleling real world billionaires ambitions to transcend the restraints of humanity, it's lookin like there's a sneaky sci fi angle/long game (seeded via WR's comments going back to season 1).

Angela may be impressionable at this point but she's not delusional. she had to have seen or heard something profound to be where she is now. or maybe it's all bullshit and she's in on a long con.

and she's known it ever since she left that room. Basically, I think WR revealed what's behind the curtain so Angela automatically knows that she can't escape with her life.

63. "Salon talks to Sam Esmail about the upcoming single-take episode"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.salon.com/2017/11/06/a-matter-of-perspectives-mr-robot-
takes-a-long-shot.

A matter of perspectives: “Mr. Robot” takes a long shot
Salon talks to “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail about its upcoming single-take episode.

Melanie McFarland11.07.2017•10:58 AM

Viewing life and consciousness as another version of code is the only way the work makes sense to Elliot Alderson. The hero of “Mr. Robot” lives with a severe dissociative disorder that makes it difficult to interact with other people, or even to know if what or who he’s seeing is real.

The only entity he can trust is the audience, the invisible entity collectively confided in and referred to as his friend. Elliot, played by Rami Malek, trusts that we’re hovering just over his shoulder, listening in as he analyzes the bewildering, annoying behavior of those around him and wonders silently (and aloud to us) what his next move will be.

This approach adds a seductive intimacy to “Mr. Robot,” airing its third season episodes Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Eliot’s genius and his fractured psychological state allow series creator Sam Esmail to mold the USA drama’s narrative in ways that fascinate and challenge viewers — sometimes a bit too much, especially if you’re among those so frazzled and confused by season 2’s mind warp that you jumped ship.

But if you’re caught up with the story — and you should be if you’re still reading this, unless you want to be spoiled — prepare to be wildly rewarded with Wednesday night’s installment. In it, Esmail and the show’s director of photography, Tod Campbell, embed us even deeper with Elliot and Angela during a single-take episode aired without interruption.

“Point of view is incredibly important in any form of storytelling, but I think it’s particularly important here because we are very subjective in our filmmaking when it comes to perspective and point of view,” Esmail told Salon.

The single-take approach facilitates this, he added, because it enables the viewer to take each step with Elliot and others as they stumble upon several game-changing revelations. The title, “Eps3.4_runtime-error.r00,” refers to the standard protocol for code. For Elliot, it also sums up the average day for a corporate drone on auto-pilot: “When code runs,” he says, “it should run straight through without interruption until all of its tasks have been completed.”

The moment he senses something is off marks a turning point in a season that has layered the characters’ conflicting agendas into a teetering stack, especially with regard to Elliot, who is more at odds with Mr. Robot than ever before. Elliot’s alter ego, played by Christian Slater, only shows up for a moment in this new episode; there’s more than enough conflict to navigate between Elliot, his sister Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and his deceptive best friend Angela (Portia Doubleday).

Esmail has always designed “Mr. Robot” as a work that smoothly interfaces with our tech-driven world, but in this episode he and Campbell created the illusion of a continuous shot that lasts nearly 46 minutes for a purpose beyond merely showing off their cinematic expertise.

The long take is a time-consuming directorial approach known for its relatively high level of difficulty, even when engineered. It was a more common practice when live TV was a broadcast standard. Nowadays, directors of photography employ them as a technical feat allowing the camera to forward the plot in concert with an episode’s writing. Think of Cary Joji Fukunaga’s celebrated, magnetizing long shot in the “True Detective” episode “Who Goes There.” A person might not recall everything that happened in that episode, but if you saw that final sequence it’s tough to forget it.

That consisted of a few minutes and was a genuine single take. “ Eps3.4_runtime-error.r00” is the product of smoothly joining 30 tracking shots filmed at several locations over the equivalent of nine days. Esmail also had to choreograph the casts' movements and timing with precision. (Without spoiling anything, adding to the impressiveness of this particular one-shot feat is that the episode employs a lot of extras.) The final product creates the sensation of smoothly flying beside Elliot and Angela, or just a few steps behind, as each races against time.

“We knew from a writing perspective that it needed to be real time,” Esmail explained. When he and Campbell started to map out the episode’s filming, “it really became clear that the best way to really get in was to be on Elliot's journey, and then switch to Angela's, and make it feel as seamless as possible. We don't even want people to know that they're in a single take. We want people to just be along for the ride and really be embroiled in what Elliot's going through.”

As the action kicks off, Elliot implores us, his unseen friend, to help him figure out what he’s up against. “Do not leave me,” he says. “Stay focused.” Trust me: that directive is simple to executive.

that sounds awesome.

They did a great job of hiding the cuts. Also the choreography and cinematography was on point.

Mr. Robot is easily the most visually interesting show on television. Esmail has done a terrific job of setting scenes and shots. The writing may not be there every week, but you know it's going to look good.

I would imagine the cuts occurred when none of the primary actors/actresses were on screen and when the camera was progressing through the building and the crowd outside with the crowd.

I was impressed with the camera work for that crowd scene outside of the E-Corp building; I wonder when that was filmed because that area of Manhattan is pretty busy, even on the weekends if I'm not mistaken. I wonder how much time the crew was allowed to shoot that fairly chaotic scene.

In response to Reply # 71


  

          

I caught a few of them.

1) When Eliot got on Samar's computer and logged in. When they zoomed in to the log-in screen.

2) After Eliot and Darlene had their conversation outside and the camera moved around to the news crew. The cut happens right when the door of the van closes.

3) When the rioters overpower the police and rush the building. The cut occurs when the tear gas/smoke fills the television screen.

There's a few others, but they weren't obvious to me.

between his knack for stylish visuals and his radical tendencies narratively=speaking, I think Sam Esmail would make some really dope films that would leave a lasting impression on people. I really hope Mr. Robot isn't all he has.

Apparently, WR decided to do Stage 2 and that riot on the same day as the Congo annexation?

I just want to see the fallout next week. What exactly can Eliot do after all of this?

Do what Elliot was tasked with? Or did she know he just was beyond the point of doing it, which reveals where her character's alliances lean, no?

only manage him via his feelings.

Also, the building was under siege so it would've been incredibly hard logistically to go find Eliot and then convince him to go through with Stage 2 when she just saw him have a malfunction that past weekend.

In retrospect, all of this ended up being a moot point because WR had already ensured victory by blowing up the other buildings. WR is playing go while Eliot and Angela are playing chess. I guess the FBI, Darlene, and Tyrell are playing checkers.

PimpTrickGangstaClick posted in there that Redditers had the time travel idea back in season 2, wild...

and yeah, may be a strong possibility that's an or the arc; especially thinking about the opening scene of this season.

also realized I didn't like season 2 as much as I remembered. I was hyper critical of it at times in there.

really looking forward to episode 6

81. "could it all be about A.I. and the crypto-currency war?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

if y'all can do me the courtesy of following me down the rabbit hole for a sec if u plz.

i randomly came across this video of a dude named Quinn Michaels. he's a mathematician (among other things) and has experience working with artificial intelligence systems.
he also oddly has the same build, voice and rhythms as Elliot fucking Alderson lol.
then he starts speaking. and i felt like he was describing the larger plot of Mr. Robot. the A.I. angle was what sealed the deal. i think it may help explain some of the sci-fi ish shit we've been kinda presented with here n there. also in terms of the nature of the show itself, it makes the most narrative sense. and most obviously, the damn TITLE OF THE SHOW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSn7Iomisyc.

Elliot's described his (our) world as a "virtual reality horror show" this season. the whole premise of the show since jump revolves around warping the viewer's sense of reality, mostly cos we have an unreliable narrator at the helm. maybe it's analogous to a larger story about world powers fucking with humanity via A.I. they created and currently control. and that every move people like Price and Whiterose make, especially including the crypto-currency shit, is in aid of serving this god-like A.I. or to have power over it.
their control, and the A.I.'s massive influence on humanity, is our unreliable narrator, feeding us different forms of bullshit. therefore the constant paranoid thick heavy feeling you get watching this show. feels like it's all designed to tell the viewer something ain't quite right with the world.

i don't think this theory would've quite worked with the previous 2 seasons, but with everything that's happened so far in s3, it *sounds* like a viable story option. and, yknow, also creepy as all get out for the real world.

I was afraid that we were gonna have another episode of 'will they/won't they' as far as blowing up the buildings were concerned since we've been on this stage 2 for over a year now...but goddamn I gotta admit that fucked ending made up for it.

Were those buildings mentioned in the prior episodes or prior seasons? Am I wrong, or were neither Eliot or Mr. Robot aware of the 71 buildings being a target?

In response to Reply # 84
Thu Nov-16-17 11:45 AM by BigReg

  

          

The OG plan was that all the paper documentation was in one building, thus we blow up the building and we are clear.

Elliot diverted those papers to several other buildings hoping to buy time/assuming the dark army needed them to be in one place to accomplish their task.

He was wrong. Not only was he wrong, we can assume the last two episodes were basically subterfuge to keep all the minor players occupied while the Dark Army did the real work. We can assume Welleck/Elliot did the heavy lifting up until he asked Angela for the job at E Corp. When Elliot diverted the packages we can assume dark army took over on the low and basically copy/pasted Elliot's plan to the other buildings across the us. They probably just needed one last thing (perhaps the code Angela ran)...and shit, that might have even been bullshit just to keep everyone occupied.

In order to save hundreds, Elliot's responsible for the death of thousands.

>Were those buildings mentioned in the prior episodes or prior
>seasons? Am I wrong, or were neither Eliot or Mr. Robot aware
>of the 71 buildings being a target?

Honestly the thought of Eliot alone stopping the whole plan by going to the building seemed ridiculous so I’m glad they flipped the script on that but damn...this shit just went to a whole new level

90. "Thank you for that breakdown."
In response to Reply # 85


  

          

Please explain that Tyrell switch-around if you can. Perhaps I wasn't paying close enough attention, but it appeared as if dude was being hidden away in some remote woodland area; how was it that he was in the basement of a fast food chain that appeared to be located near the Wall Street or Financial District if I was placing the background for that storefront properly. That didn't make too much sense to me, but like I said, I could have missed a scene or two that explained that.

91. "Tyrell's been whining to be part of the main team"
In response to Reply # 90


  

          

If you remember when he was in the woods so that way he wouldn't get caught by the cops. That's why he attempted an escape; he didn't really want to leave as mainly he wanted to be actively involved in stage 2.

After all that bullshit eventually there was a scene where the Canavale/dark army picked him up and brought him to another basement 'safehouse' to continue the real work along with Elliot's Mr.Robot persona. This is presumably the same safehouse that Darlene saw Angela/Mr.Robot go to that late night when Elliot was in a fugue state.

We, as viewers, weren't really told where it was until Elliot figured it out and made that phone call...it was the BBQ place that Canavale kept on having meetings at.

In response to Reply # 91


  

          

Do you think the “instructions” Cannavale gave him revealed the full scale of the attack and he had a change of heart? I didn’t get the sense that they told him his wife was dead.

In response to Reply # 93


  

          

when he told him, 'Sorry'.

Not sure tho, I figure its how you said...he suddenly got spooked at the attack or maybe like Brooklynwhat said it's white rose 12d chess again.

But right now im thinking the letter told him what happened, told him that they would take care of everything if he committed suicide, and he got cold feet.

95. "nope....I think Dark Army played Tyrell against himself."
In response to Reply # 94


  

          

Tyrell revealed in the woods that he couldn't be fully trusted. I think the Dark Army got a win-win situation with Tyrell. If Tyrell killed himself, they wouldn't have to babysit him. If Tyrell flips, he'll go down as the fall guy of the biggest terrorist attack ever no matter what he can prove.

The only person that has to worry about Tyrell is probably Eliot since Tyrell can place him for 5/9 and the planning for Stage 2. I honestly don't think the FBI know exactly how involved Eliot was in comparison to the other players....and they definitely don't have anything solid on the Dark Army.

But I noticed he seemed to handcuff himself to the bed in that basement.

We already know that he knows how to escape from handcuffs from that episode a few weeks ago.

So it seemed like he wanted to make it look like he was being held prisoner and escaped.

But why?

In response to Reply # 99


  

          

1. probably explained what was happening, including what happened to his wife(they may have told him his kid is dead too)

2. probably had instructions to make the scene look like he was being held prisoner so that he would not appear guilty

3. probably also provided a way for him to kill himself

101. "RE: Elliot basically made those buildings a target"
In response to Reply # 85


  

          

I'm with you almost all the way to the end. Either way, I think you got it mostly right (note: I clearly don't know shit except for what everyone else saw).
I was under the impression that Tyrell was the one responsible for spreading the attack to the 71 buildings. The little meeting with Tyrell, Angela, and Mr. Robot showed where all the paper records went. When Tyrell said he could still do it, I was lost. Then when it still happened, it seemed to me like he was the one who said "fuck it, take 'em all out." His "turn" at the end, I assumed was part of the instructions. Tyrell had been under suspicion, which the Dark Army knows. If he's seen as a victim that changes the framework the FBI is working from-- so the handcuffs, the fire, and him yelling what he was yelling when he got caught.

I definitely think that the last two episodes were to keep Eliot, who had become a known liability, busy while the real shit went down.

In response to Reply # 101


  

          

his, “I will need the power of the entire dark army” statement when they told him the new deadline could have meant the one building, could have meant the 71. They haven’t been as clear with what Tyrell knows particularly since we havent seen the letters’s content as the viewer.

I do feel when him/Angela/Mr. Robot were arguing in the basement and Robot threatened him again at least up to that point he was about the one building plan..after though? up in thr air

Easily the two best episodes of this season.

But overall, season 3 has been excellent so far. A nice comeback from the sophomore slump of season 2.

105. "yeah i completely disagree about a 'sophmore slump' tho"
In response to Reply # 104


  

          

i had zero complaints about s2.
i loved the shit out of s2.
that season was paranoia incarnate.
without which we don't get the payoffs we're getting this season.
it was visually, tonally and technically remarkable television.
Elliot's epic struggles with Mr. Robot reached new and complicated levels.
we had a 90s sitcom episode featuring ALF, for ffs lol.
the mystery behind Tyrell was played so close to the chest NO ONE knew if he was still alive or had become another of Elliot's alters.
admittedly, it was *mostly* setup and piece-moving, but it was done in immaculate abstract fashion.
most of all its unrelenting heavy mindfuckery with us not knowing what's real and what's not. i mean this is the through line in the entire series to date: reality is bullshit. s2 was all about that (lack of) distinction b/w real and imagined. it's designed to get you (us) thinking in layers. as in, we know things coming from Elliot's POV can't always be trusted, but what if the shared reality that everyone else exists in also can't be trusted? (clearly it can't, but i think what the show/s2 explores is to what extent the mistrust stretches to, by letting us in on Price and Whiterose's long game/war).
which, if ppl actually read and not ignore my above post about A.I and crypto-currencies playing an integral role in this show, will make a lot more sense (re: the sci fi elements that we are all attributing to time travel (of course things like multiple multi-season BTTF references and a particle accelerator make that assumption obvious, but there is definitely a series arc developing here about the essential nature of reality, and not necessarily about jumping through a wormhole)).

here's what i think's gonna happen. 90% of u are gonna go back at some point and re-watch this whole entire series front to back/binge style (which we should, cos it's built for it), during which point s2 will click and flow way more than it did the first time around, and then the appreciation will follow. cos s2 is basically s1 on amphetamines. and i recall unanimous love for s1. i got the feeling the show went "full Mr. Robot" and it turned a lot of folks off. whereas i could stand to see it get even more heady.

(not aimed directly at u of course, this is kinda the same stuff i was saying in last yrs s2 poast, minus the A.I./crypto-currency angle).

I understand its importance in the overarching narrative, I just felt it was way too pretentious and full of itself for its own good. I get the same feeling I did during season 3 of "Hannibal". It just got too artsy fartsy. Like, "look at all the cool stuff I'm doing", but not being engaging.

Season 3 makes me feel like Season 1 made me feel. It's a must watch show for me again.

it was a little TOO heavy handed with crashing us back down to earth.
i still think there is an artificial intelligence and crypto-currency related angle that'll be played out through the entire series. Esmail can't be dropping HEAPS of wink-wink fucking-with-time/reality bits in 3 seasons worth of show to just completely abandon it.
i think it's a head-fake, tbh.

meanwhile, Whiterose BEASTING.
did we previously already know she installed Price as CEO?
did HE know he was just an errand boy?
good lord. i thought they were adversaries but clearly Whiterose holds all the power.

RIP Trenton and Mobley.

The fact that Trenton couldn't figure out how to drive herself out of a desert would've been absolutely hilarious if the situation were not already so foreboding.

I think Dom and Eliot are going to end up working together at some point. There's no way either of them can touch the Dark Army on their own.

i actually thought they might've survived and served The Dark Army (like Trenton was guessing). but even if they drove outta there, how long til they got found again? fuck. i laughed when it happened. then i was horrified shortly after when they were done.

the desert, the direction, the wanton death. this ep was very Breaking Bad.

WR got everything she wanted.
Wellick in jail.
Angela’s basically on her way to Bellevue (nice callback to why WR played her)
Darlene/Elliot got all their original people, the team that started it murdered and are effectively locked out of their own plan themselves.

Maybe between something Angella/Wellick knows they can start an ember of a fire with all the characters left standunf, but the heros are looking totally fucked.

And his line from a few episodes ago, "Don't mistake my generosity for generosity."

Whiterose ain't no joke. And like Dom said, "They're going to get away with it."

I hated the reappearance of the Mr. Robot jacket and Elliot and Angela's door moment. The former was unnecessary, while the latter was sappy/sentimental.

but everything from the opening to Trenton's younger brother was heavy and done so fucn well. The centering of the terror Muslim families face in this era was well done too. Not to add the very minimal ways they showed how militarized the country has become after 7-1.

I also had forgot Elliot was an addict, but by the end he seemed to be back on his season one swag...

This show is fucn fantastic.

I felt like he was blatantly going for it with the 80's movies in the intro, everything during the theater scene other moviegoers included, the music, etc. What saved it imho is that his almost attempt/redemption scenes and other serious shit were played straight through so those cheesy scenes didn't fuck with the goodness you mentioned below:

That it is. I also loved two things on top of what you mentioned

1)Them showing us basically Elliot's first psychic break and the 'birth' of Mr. Robot
2)Goddamn, that heavy handed time travel tease. Its such a troll but I love it. Speaking of teases, lol@ the theater scene where he had us thinking that the kid might have been another imaginary Elliot friend

I agree that the door scene was meant to be a throwback to 80s movies. Along with the music choice for that scene.

This show messes with your head so much as a viewer that I was unsure if Trenton's brother was "real" until Elliot asked the concession stand worker if he saw the kid leave.

Could've done without the jacket part, but similar to Fight Club where Tyler Durden had been starting up fight clubs all over the country it's interesting to see the reach/control Mr. Robot has when Elliott isn't paying attention. Like who tf does Mr. Robot have on the payroll to be able to pull that off? We'll likely never find out how deep it all goes and that's scary.

Could have been its own standalone short film, and it would've been incredible to me. I might have to rewatch that one. I loved the sappy ending monologue as well.

was all about the consequences of messing with time, creating that tangent universe with Biff as the king. the main theory floating around now, and kinda confirmed by Esmail, is about Elliot living in one of these tangent/parallel universes. or possibly about Whiterose creating one.

i'm not convinced it's just there as a heavy metaphor.

my feeling is they'll plant seeds for this being the larger overall explanation throughout the whole series, but might not specifically spell it out for us or make it completely obvious. it'll probly end up being never fully answered or explained, but it'll ensure people are talking about this shit years after the fact.

136. "ProtonMail, CERN & Trenton's email"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

"ProtonMail is an end-to-end encrypted email system founded at CERN in 2013. This service uses public-key cryptography, and symmetric encryption; thus a user must authenticate with a password (symmetric and known by the service), and use a different password to decrypt their mailbox (private and unknown by the service). Elliott receives a dead man's switch email from Trenton at his personal ProtonMail mailbox:

From: Tr3nton <tr3nton@protonmail.ch>
To: elliotalderson@protonmail.ch

I may have found a way to undo the hack. I've been investigating Romero. He installed hardware keyloggers on all the machines at the arcade some time before five/nine. The NYPD imaged all of his data after he was murdered. I was able to get this chain of custody doucment from the NYPD when they prepared to transfer the evidence to the FBI. They couldn't get into the encrypted keylogger containers. If Romero somehow got a hold of the keys, or even the seed data and source code for the encryption tools, the answer might be in those keylogger captures, but the FBI probably has those files now.

107.72 KB 1 file attached
Romero NYPD chain of custody.pdf

An e-mail sent to Trenton will automatically generate a response that is identical to the e-mail sent to Elliot, except the attachment"

CERN? another reference to fucking with the building blocks of the universe, and possibly with reality itself? and we did see Whiterose next to what looked like a large hardron collider, particle accelerator or quantum computer while at the Washington Township plant.

y'all gonna start paying attention to this sci fi angle now or nah? it's pretty much been right in our face all season. again, not necessarily time travel, but definitely on some parallel universe shit. which involves quantum computing. which involves artificial intelligence. which involves crypto-currencies.

138. "The 'Mr. Robot' Parallel Universe Theory (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://www.bustle.com/p/the-mr-robot-parallel-universe-theory-will-completely-change-the-way-you-watch-the-hacker-drama-3076684.

By Jefferson Grubbs

By now, viewers of USA Network's hacker drama are conditioned to expect a big twist — and attempting to predict it in advance has become something of a sport. But even in the realm of the show's previous twists, this single Mr. Robot Season 3 theory may blow your mind. In Season 1, it was revealed that Mr. Robot was the manifestation of Elliot's split personality. In Season 2, it was revealed that much of the season had taken place in a prison where Elliot was serving time. And now, it's possible that Season 3 is building up to some game-changing revelation involving multiple dimensions. Is Mr. Robot actually a show about parallel universes?

The idea that the series would begin exploring alternate timelines and/or realities first started to be bandied about among fans during Season 2, with the seed being planted by Whiterose (B.D. Wong) herself. "Have you ever wondered how the world would look if the Five/Nine Hack had never happened?" her alter ego, Minister Zhang, asked Grace Gummer's Agent Dom DiPierro last year. "In fact, some believe there are alternate realities playing out that very scenario, with other lives we're leading, and other people that we've become. The contemplation moves me very deeply."
Michael Parmelee/USA Network

But idle speculation turned into active theorizing with the Season 3 premiere, which leaned into these multi-dimensional musings, threatening to tip the show farther into sci-fi than ever before. The opening scene of the season featured viewers' first glimpse into the oft-mentioned Washington Township Plant, the Evil Corp facility where Elliot's father and Angela's mother were both stricken with the cancer that ended their lives — and the plant was revealed to be the home to a complex piece of machinery that some viewers think could be a quantum computer, and others think could be a particle accelerator, or Large Hadron Collider.

Opinion also differs on whether Whiterose is trying to use this mysterious machine to travel back in time to prevent the Five/Nine hack from happening, to prove that their reality exists inside a computer simulation, or to open a portal to a parallel universe. But the evidence in support of the latter theory is starting to pile up to levels that are impossible to ignore. First of all, there's what the scientist leading a tour of the Washington Township Plant said in that opening scene: "If I close my eyes, I can imagine that everything we experience — everything we think, see, and do — is unfolding simultaneously in a parallel universe. And if so, how many copies of ourselves exist? And might our mental states be conjoined, for better or worse?"

If the Washington Township Plant is harboring an LHC, then that certainly lends credence to the parallel universe idea, since the existence of such alternate realities is one of the scientific theories the particle accelerator could prove one day. According to a recent Wired article by Abigail Beall on CERN's Large Hadron Collider, "By smashing subatomic particles together at speeds approaching the speed of light, it can confirm the existence of widely-predicted particles, discover new ones, and could potentially even create microscopic black holes that lead to other dimensions."

Furthering this line of thinking is the presence of a QR code in the Season 3 premiere, which, when scanned, leads fans down a rabbit hole of Reddit threads until landing on a post by user KrullFan, written two years ago, and titled "Gravitational Waves Leaking from Parallel Universe?" The user wrote:
"I just heard about the theory that gravitational waves could be leaking in from parallel universe, and affecting our universe... maybe that's what's causing these mystery spots. Some scientists theorize that gravitational leaks might explain dark matter, and the idea that two parallel universes overlapping on each other might cause gravitational aberrations: ie. mystery spots! Crazy, right?"

Additionally, there's the fact that the FBI's surveillance program on fsociety is called "Project Berenstain" — a clear reference to the so-called Mandela Effect, which attempts to explain how masses of people can misremember the same thing (like confusing the Berenstain Bears as the Berenstein Bears) as the result of a split from a parallel universe.

Still not convinced that Mr. Robot is about to head down the wormhole of multiple dimensions? How about the fact that creator Sam Esmail has essentially confirmed it… and has even made a movie about parallel universes before? When asked by the New York Times about Season 3's hints at the existence of multiple realities, Esmail wasn't coy about revealing his show's increasing bend towards science-fiction. He said:
"We reveal more of Whiterose's overall plan. It is still cryptic and still a mystery, but she clearly has an agenda and that agenda does involve parallel universes. The most powerful people in the world — not unlike a lot of people in our real world — go after these loftier goals because they can, because they have the money and the power to do so. In the Mr. Robot world there is a character who is fixated on this idea of parallel universes. Do they exist? And can she somehow find a way to harness that?"

Before he created Mr. Robot, Esmail wrote and directed the 2014 indie romance Comet, starring Justin Long and Esmail's own future wife Emmy Rossum. Here's IMDB's official description of the film: "Set in a parallel universe, Comet bounces back and forth over the course of an unlikely but perfectly paired couple's six-year relationship." The surreal film is told in a non-linear way, with flashes back and forth that make the viewer wonder whether what they're watching are merely unreliable memories… or an alternate reality where the relationship played out differently.

Given that Esmail has explored the question of parallel universes in his work before, I think it's safe to say that Mr. Robot's flirtation with the idea isn't a coincidence. But to what end? It's possible that Whiterose has assured Evil Corp that she can use the particle accelerator to conjure a reality where the Five/Nine hack never took place, and the corporation never lost its data. But will she actually use it for that stated purpose… or for her own nefarious agenda?

If Charles Manson convinced you he was god, isnt possible that he also believes he's god? Wouldn't that make him more convincing?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Eliot was just so obvious with that whole meeting about a 'Stage 3'. There's no way Whiterose hasn't whipped up a plan for Eliot. Even her right-hand man was like 'Can I shoot him please?'

I don't think Eliot understands that he's not in control of the situation and that there will always be someone more powerful than him pulling strings. That argument with Price where Price revealed that E Corp let 5/9 happen pretty much confirmed that for me.


And Darlene may be toast. There's no way that FBI guy is going to let her prove that she can undo the hack. I wouldn't be surprised if the Dark Army told him to just go in the interrogation room and murder her.

the way she was responding to being told the news it was almost like this was all a game she played to teach Eliot and her boo a lesson. She seemed in complete control of the situation all the way through.

Despite the fact that he's def bit off way more than he can chew by taking on the dark army this time around, i'm constantly impressed with how badass Eliot is at times. This is a really bold move whether he catches the L or not.

essentially saying Elliot didnt hack them in a straightforward way and may have outsmarted them


also the hunter2 for the password was a bit of a nod that they might have been caught slipping

so i guess we'll see how this plays out

150. "last ep of the season is called "shutdown -r""
In response to Reply # 145


  

          

without the standard "eps3.9" that all the other episode titles start with. that may indicate Elliot somehow outsmarting Whiterose AND TDA and possibly running Stage 3.
also, the episode description:

"Elliot tries to save Darlene but sh*t doesn't go as planned. Mr. Robot needs to step up or step back ffs. Angela considers the price".

Darlene is definitely gonna need saving. but ultimately i don't think that'll happen w/out Dom's involvement (she'd obviously have to go rogue in some capacity). Angela is gonna need a hand too after going Cuckoo's Nest.

all that said, i have no idea how this'll play out. and i fuckn love that.

Considering the showrunner stated he saw this going to 5 seasons and 3 was the midpoint we might actually get closure to this crazy ass story

In response to Reply # 151


  

          

Should be interesting to see how the story progresses. I was thinking this was the penultimate season to be honest seeing how bleak things have been as of late.

153. "This finale was awesome...."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

My takeaways:

The reveal between Philip Price and Angela may have been the most obvious thing about this episode. I feel like Sam Esmail purposely made this 'Empire Strikes Back' revelation come out on the same week as Star Wars.

Santiago caught the worst fade in the whole show so far......some Friday the 13th shit. Don't let Irving do it to you.....cause he'll overdo it lol.

And Leon proved again why he's DA...he's probably the most proficient killer around.

Dom got her suspicions confirmed in the worst possible way.....at least she let Darlene know exactly how terrible she is at life.


And Eliot? I still am not sold on his ability to actually stop WR even though I applaud his undying dedication to seeing his mission through. There are major unknown factors that he cannot possibly be prepared to handle. How can you match against someone who can make world-changing moves while taking a bubble bath? Grant shouldn't have doubted her.


SN: That epilogue.....I don't think the show needs Fernando back but I'm already all in so we'll see how that goes. Hopefully, he doesn't end up becoming a major distraction like the Dark Web stuff from Season 2.

speak for your self dude. I swear some of y'all really front on detective. at most they always had that way weird creepy old dude wanting young cookie vibe

that reveal made the white rose shit make even more sense. this fool WR really tried to ruin Philip on so many fronts, incredible petty

I did not see that one coming. In hindsight I can see it was there for us but I guess Im not getting the signals. That flashback episode where her mom was offered money from anonymous donor was kind of telling.

156. "*Redacted* showing up was a good thing tho"
In response to Reply # 153

The return of *redacted* along with the work Badass and Canavalle, the show has some of the best villains in the game. While I loved his perfect story arc and would be happy with it being self contained, he can serve purpose: During the barn sequence I thought to myself how team Robot has no shooters, so lets see where he ends up.

Yeah, Angela being his daughter was an easy tell but I aint mad (like you said, it seemed like an homage as opposed to a cheap plot device)

You ain't talk about the biggest revelation this episode tho:


THE PROJECT IS REAL. BACK TO THE FUTURE NIGGAS. lol@the reversal code being hid behind another time travel reference. Price confirmed it existing and while time travel wasn't spelled out it was lets see where this batshit White Rose shit goes.

Speaking of White Rose, its a cool reset having all the characters effectively working for her, particularly since she's such a fantastic character. Speaking of which..

...Dom. Dom. Dom. You just had to get to the bottom of the case didn't you? You've got suicidal assassins killing people across the globe along with the biggest terrorist attacks in the world and you put it all on Darlene? Yeah, she might be a piece of shit, but you got what you ultimately wanted...can't blame her cause you decided to slap box with god.

And agreed on the biggest reveal. WR is def on some time travel alternate universe shit. She even tells ol’ boy “I will find you” a la Vanilla Sky.

Also can’t believe Eliot had the keys all along lol...

This show is incredible

In response to Reply # 156


  

          

i think half the emotions coming through might've just been hurt feelings from being physically used. other than that, Dom's got no business blaming Darlene for damn near everything. she's just lashing out. but interesting dynamics going forward as they'll for sure have to cross paths again, now that everyone is (seemingly) team Whiterose.

I could only SMH at that one scene in the parking deck where she KO'd. If you suspect someone of wrongdoing, why are you going to let them close distance on you.

I'm just glad that she Darlene off because I don't like Darlene. She's terrible.

160. "it really was"
In response to Reply # 153


  

          

soon as random chick said "eses" i was like naaaaaaahhh can't be. i even answered Darlene's question before he could lol. this can only mean good things (i think). well, good in that we get more of those surreal Vera x Elliot confabs. i remember speaking highly of how well-written and portrayed of a "villain" he was, and how fascinating he is to watch (even though he's the piece of shit who killed Shayla, but as a character? he's worth having in the line-up).
the Price/Angela reveal has been well talked about in the fan community since the beginning, so while it wasn't a big surprise, it was kinda nice, if only to know Price was actually caring about another flesh and blood human being other than himself.
Mac Quayle's scores have been exceptional this season, and the finale had such a pulsating lifeforce of its own, it actually gives u the same sense of scope of watching a sci fi space epic. which i'm starting to think is not coincidental, considering the never-ending references to messing with the timeline (the Supes scene really hit it home, and yet another BTTF reference with the Alderson family photos).
all of this ties into Whiterose's vision, which Esmail has repeatedly said will NOT have anything to do with "time travel". but all of her activities are still consistent with someone who may have the ability to do a BTTFII: change something in the timeline from the past, creating a tangent universe (and u can throw in multiverse theory in there somewhere). maybe Whiterose thinks she can create these tangential realities, and by doing so reconnect with dead acquaintances and loved ones who are still alive in one particular tangent universe or another...?
ow, my head.
but i've called it for the record all up n down this seasons post.
i still think it's all some kinda combo of cern-ish related quantum computing, smashing of particles, mk ultra mind control (multiple compartmentalised personalities/alters created from extreme on-purpose trauma), cryptocurrencies, artificial intelligence & the mandela effect (or the fucking-with of the timeline resulting in different realities). i think overtly and covertly, it's feeding off a lot of the current hot topics in the world (anyone see the quick rise of Sophia the A.I. all over the web lately?). the show's overall depiction of where we are currently at as a species, reflects back to us as coming off very Matrixy, very false-reality. the genius is that its only a reflection of our "real" world. we all live in a virtual reality of some description.
a simulacra.

i loved how we pretty much had all the main players, past and present, converge in this finale. BUT...where the fuck was Wellick? we didn't even get a single scene with him.
