I'm assuming that Ray was the Warden of the Corrections Facility? And his 'crew' must have been the prison guards?

Yeah those are my thoughts as well.

SPOILERS

Agreed. The prison reveal has me thinking back to so many interactions Elliott's character has had over the season so far... His visits from Angela and his sister, his phone calls, etc... All can align with this new reality that was revealed to us. Pretty cool.

I'm assuming the next episode will reveal more, but yeah I'm thinking Ray and his crew worked at the prison to some degree, threw Elliott into solitary, etc...

Yeah this is my thinking too. I'd sort of been aware that the only time Elliot has interacted with other season 1 characters has been at his "mother's house", but not really explicitly considered what it meant. Early on I though it might be in his head, but then he was interacting with Darlene and Gideon, so I stopped thinking about it much.

Big question for me is what he's in for. I wonder if maybe he openly committed some fairly minor offence to get locked up and therefore away from technology for a while. Neither the hack nor apparently killing Tyrell (which I'm sceptical about) would seem to make sense.

Is it possible he got arrested for hacking that guy that was dating his therapist? That guy was not at all pleased, and specifically said Elliott shouldn't be able to get away with this.

Interesting - that's definitely possible. Wouldn't have the same emotional impact as Elliot doing it to himself, but it's certainly feasible - particularly because if it was hacking-related, then it makes sense for Ray to know about his ability with computer systems.

I guess we'll find out either this week or at least by the end of the season.

Yeah, why he is in prison is the big question now...

I'd take a guess that it's self-inflicted in order to regiment his life and get him away from a computer.

That was a crazy episode.  But definitely need more info.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I want to say I remember when Darlene was there 'visiting' him she said something to the effect of "I still can't believe you chose to come here?" It would seem that Elliot must have committed himself or something willingly. I'm sure it'll be addressed soon enough.

They did mention that on the 'aftershow', but every time I think I got it, they blow my mind again!!! Clearly my favorite show currently airing :o

 :lol Yeah pretty much that. Darlene is either starting to lose it or her true colors are being shown? Maybe both?

Love that they were able to go a whole episode and not show the main character of the show and still hold my interest.

Yeah...that was a cool thing to see that it's not entirely necessary to have Elliot around, although....I'd have liked to see more of him. But it looks like next week is focused on him a lot so.

What I have a hard time believing is that these guys are so smart and tech savvy that they didn't have something in place to notify them when that chic was returning home? Can't believe they were caught off guard like that....then again....I can't believe they stayed at that spot for so long either.

Agreed. After she showed up, they said something to the effect of "we should have been watching her GPS closer", meaning they were tracking her but weren't paying attention. Like you said, you'd think tech geniuses would have set it up so if that GPS signal got within a few miles of their location, they would be alerted. But whatever.

But - complete speculation - what if we find out later that Darlene actually wanted all that to happen? She actually wanted Susan to come home so that Darlene would have the opportunity for the revenge she's wanted since she was 4 years old?

I could see that being revealed later on.

could be. She walked into that pool room knowing she was going to kill her....and then did.

I was talking with my brother about this and we both agree that it'd be pretty sick if there was a 'happy' ending to all of this....at least for the main characters...(Ellitot, Darlene) Elliot has destroyed the world economy basically with Darlene and now Darlene has actually killed someone. I can't see them glorifying this type of behavior with a 'happy' ending. Even if you 'agree' with F-Society's ideological stance...what they did is a massive crime and killing someone is rarely OK to do...especially the manner in which Darlene did.

I'm curious as to the end game of the show and if we are going to get a realistic ending or if it will be 'hollywooded' up...

Just caught the latest episode.

This show keeps getting better. I don't remember too many shows that could have an entire episode that was missing the protagonist and still be awesome.

Spent this weekend getting caught up on season 2 (had only seen the season premiere), and holy crap, so good. A couple of the long episodes probably could have stood to have been cut a little bit shorter, but that's about my only complaint. It's a testament to this season's work with the ancillary characters that they were able to pull last week's episode off and keep us engrossed for the full hour, I don't think an Elliot-less episode would have worked last year.

Really awesome episode this week. Feels like the overall tension escalated here compared to previously on season. Building up to the season end.

Something that was particularly cool this week was the music. It's always good music on this show but this episode stood out for me.

Watched the first season of this show in one day lol. Insanely amazing show, love the attention to detail on all the software used. Very authentic terminology. Currently watching season 2 and 4 episodes in, should be able to catch up by tomorrow lol. I should've waited until the season was done to catch up but after that season finale couldn't wait to watch the next set of episodes. Second season has been great as well, though very different in terms of pace and storyline, but still amazing nonetheless.

Also so many House of Cards characters in this show. And is it just me or does the music sound so similar to Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross' The social network and Girl with dragon tattoos soundtracks?

Aww yeah :yarr. But... I guess we were both right. In the end, it was "self-inflicted".

Oh, and Angela's really a conundrum. WTF does she actually want? And does it matter? Cuz Dom is all up in her shit, and has been all up in her shit for quite a while.

Al caught up now, dang the wait for the last few episodes is going to be ridiculous. Can't believe how awesome this season has been as well, it makes me want to crank out the ol bash shell in windows and start using command line Linux again.

I think Angela is going to flip and rat Elliot out, possibly even work under cover to get him on tape or something. She's showing signs of losing it and Dom knows it.

Something that was particularly cool this week was the music. It's always good music on this show but this episode stood out for me.

I have to agree on this one. The music was awesome in the opening scene of this episode in particular. The usage of the Depeche Mode and Public Image Ltd songs in the opening scene were just perfect for the whole dark prison atmosphere.

And is it just me or does the music sound so similar to Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross' The social network and Girl with dragon tattoos soundtracks?

Yeah, the original soundtrack of the series definitely has some similarities, but since Iīm a fan of Trent Reznorīs work, I really enjoy the soundtrack as it is.

Yeah, I was thinking this as well. When Dom was at her apartment, you could tell Angela seemed to be at the end of her rope.

Just wow. This show....man, I don't want it to end. I think the atmosphere the last twenty minutes was set up by that soundtrack.....friggin' intense!

Where do you think the call was coming from? It certainly looked like the body guard knew where that address was.

Curious to see who it is that walked up on Angela at the end?

I'll have to dig it up but on reddit, someone made an album where the FBI agent Dom says shes been following Angela and posted screenshots of the same two agents that are always there.
I'm more curious about what Eliot was asking the viewer to find in the room when it does the pan out.

yeah....I was wondering about that as well.

I'm also curious as to if Darlene had removed the duffel bag full of the 'F' Society taping equipment and tapes from her boyfriends apartment? If not, the FBI is there and it's about to be discovered.

And, Tyrell's wife calling Elliot "Allie" or whatever she's calling him makes it seem as if there's a history there that we aren't aware of and that Elliot does not remember.

She's calling him Ollie because Elliott says that's his name when they first met I think in the first episode this season.

Found this in an article online:


With that in mind, how much should we study this scene? Care to point at any particular corners of the room we should pay close attention to?

I'll do my Best tO be helpful here. There is definiTely a hinT in this scene. I dOn't know if I should tell you what Main corner to look in, oR if the hInt is even in the corner of the frame, but Go aHead and study that scene to see whaT you can find



I'm wondering if the Capitalized lettering is the hint?

I did read that. The clue spells out BOTTOMRIGHT. I think I'm going to checkout from looking at anymore info until the season is done, all this theorizing and analysis dulls my viewing experience and almost always sets up for disappointment.
