Just got caught up. Holy crap, what an episode! That last scene!

So....is Elliot 'seeing' Tyrell or is Tyrell really there? It's fascinating that the show has created a reasonable doubt about anyone Elliot is talking to.

and that whole scenario with Angela, the van...the house....the interrogation from White Rabbit.....just so strange and odd yet interesting. It almost looked like when she showed up to her lawyers house that she was hypnotized in a way. I'm sure there was more said and revealed 'after' they cut away from that conversation.

As I said earlier, I think I have a theory or direction of how this show will go and then they totally blow it out of the water in the next episode(s). I LOVE IT! Can't wait for the season finally! :o

The music that was playing in the van and the music during the last scene are from Back to the Future.
I think the show is about to get a little bit more Sci-Fi.

Yup, that was my first thought as well. It is incredibly interesting as a audience member to never really know what's real or what is fake from the eyes of the main character.

There are rumors and 'theories' that the whole show is really just that. A computer program ala "The Matrix"....

Just. Wow. I don't want this show to stop....when's season 3 start?

That entire scene of Darlene being exposed to the FBI war room was soooooo great!!! Her reaction was priceless....

I guess we got the answer as to if Tyrell was really there or not.

WTF Angela? That last scene would make you believe that White Rabbit gave her the low down on the whole operation.

Such a cool show

Agreed on all your above points. Also - the very last scene at the end was just the icing on the cake.

Great finale, the wait for next season is going to be excruciating. For me this show is amazing to binge watch, the weekly waits between episodes was killing me that last 3 episodes after I caught up. Back to back stellar seasons, I can only see it getting more and more entertaining.

AMAZING season ending!! Talk about "cliffhanger(s)". I don't even know what I think I'm seeing is what I'm actually seeing. Yes, it appears Tyrell is alive, but is he, or is it another inner being and he just shot himself? What is going on with Angela?! The Joey Bada$$ line at the end was great! Bring on season 3 next week. :eek

No idea why I missed the post-credit scene for the finale, but that was a great little add-on.

Spoilers obviously....

 I wonder if they're depicting that as prison with Mobley & Trenton working at Fry's with the same dude that Elliot gets help. Either way, agonizingly long wait for the next season.

Great question. Are they in prison or is what we saw real? The presence of Joey made me wonder.

I assumed he had gotten out and that what we saw was real. There seems to be no reason to do that whole thing again, especially when Elliot isn't even present at the time.

I could be wrong though, but it would just be weird.

Finally caught the finale.

Holy shit, I don't even know what to think.

I almost missed the post-credits scene, glad I sat back down and watched it! (Not that it helped lol)

Loved to death the first season, liked with some doubts about the overall pacing and stretched out twists / revelations the second. Still looking very forward to the third season, but I'll wait until it's over to watch it in a row  :metal

Interesting pieces being setup in the premiere. I need to rewatch the previous seasons, I've forgotten a bunch of the character names and some of the mini events that have happened. Regardless, great opening.

That was a good episode though I kinda feel that it was a bit forced here and there. I like that they will be exploring the Mr. Robot character and his relationship with everyone else instead of just with Eliot.

SPOILERY SPEAK:























I'm guessing White Rose is fooling around with time travel or some sort of inter-dimensional cross over given that large facility he was shown in.....the nature of the lecture that scientist was giving those who walked in the hall with him.....and Angela's hint that White Rose has opened her eyes, and that she seems to think it can all start over again and be washed away. Plus, we already know the guy is infatuated with 'time'.

This would be an interesting yet dangerous road to pursue IMO given the fact that one of the most alluring things about the show is how 'real' it feels. You throw time travel or inter dimensional travel into the mix now....it has the chance to go off the rails. But I'll trust the story, it hasn't let me down yet.

That's a fantastic analysis. I hadn't made the connection to the White Rose and the obsession with time but it all adds up. I also agree that it would be weird if they pursued that avenue but maybe they're just messing with us which is kind of their thing.

What an amazing second episode. The two episodes so far have been fantastic, I really really need to rewatch the first two seasons of this show again, there is so much stuff I've forgotten, I'm not picking up on some things that have carried over.

Yeah. This series deserves a good 'binge' watch to roll it all in a row. Totally agree that these first two episodes have been great. I love how they find new ways to incorporate 'Mr. Robot' into Elliot's life

Another excellent episode, normally I'm not a fan of retconning storylines, but I thought this was done really well. Some great revelations this episode as well. I sorta see why Tyrell's storyline was mostly kept away in the 2nd season. Great stuff.

Yeah, I'm glad they filled that big gap in the story and they showed a little more of how Tyrell is involved in all of this. He's more fucked up than I thought.

At first I was a bit bummed that the whole episode was going to be dedicated to him....but I should have known better. That episode did a really good job of showing a few more layers of how many people are involved in this. I always kind of figured that FBI guy was involved so it was nice to get that bit of confirmation. The only thing bad about this show is the week wait in between episodes. The ability to Binge watch shows has spoiled me and I don't have the patience to wait for this season to hit streaming services.
