People in line at the theater interacted with the kid and when Elliot asked the clerk at the counter if he saw a little boy leave and the clerk said Ďyes, he leaves out and leftí

Iím pretty sure the kid was real. Theyíve done a good job of revealing to us when Elliot is creating these instances.

I would need to watch the part when they are in line because I'm pretty sure they are interacting with Elliot, not with the kid since it's Elliot who is describing what back to the future is about.
As far as the guy behind the counter, that is the only one I haven't been able to work out and might be the one that actually gives it away, but I'm still not sold. Elliot doesn't really describe the kid and the guy behind the counter just doesn't seem to be paying any attention to anything.

Completely true. Both those instances were pretty ambiguous as far as clarifying if that kid was real. Itís an interesting storytelling device that theyíve created to where we really donít know if these interactions Elliot is having with people are even real people.

There's no doubt about that. All of this season I've been questioning whether anything that happens to Elliot is real or not. These guys have messed with my head pretty bad  :lol

Yeah seriously. It's been that way the entire time since the prison reveal in season 2. Elliot is an unreliable narrator.

Ok on to season 3....this is quite possibly the best show out there, just so overly engrossing...

I'll join the chat in about a week or so...

I watched the scene again and you are right, the guy in front of them does look at the kid a couple of times while explaining what he thinks the movie is about.

Coming down to the finale and I am dreading it already. I have a bad feeling about it and really hope it's more uplifting end to the season. Either way this season has been flawless and one of the best seasons of a show I've ever seen.

It seems like i continually repeat myself because what else can you say about this show? It incredible, plain and simple. The fact that in now three seasons thereís yet to be one Ďwastedí episode or for that matter scene, the quality of the acting, the plot, imagery....on and on......this show is IMO in the small group of greatest television shows ever. Iíve yet to find a flaw in it.

I envy you RJ having been able to churn through the series like you have.....your getting so much awesomeness and Iím curious as to how the story feels getting to see it at a rapid pace like that rather than the Ďtraditionalí method. Thereís simply no way I could restrain myself to record a few in a row or the season then binge them, itís too good a show.

I think prior to season 4 Iím gonna binge it all again to lead into it.

It's a double edged sword for me, I mean it's cool to just power through it, but I don't think I absorb as much binge watching as I do when the anticipation builds up all week leading to the episode. I just don't think I'm as totally focused on it, make sense?

Yep. Totally. Thatís the price we pay when binging a series. You lose that reflection time.

I like to watch the new eps the next day, and I'll always watch it a second time before seeing the new episode. I've never binged it, but I feel like this gives me a solid feel of what's actually going on.

HOLE E Sh%t! What a great way to round out an incredible season! Freaking unreal, so much went on there.

I think itís now pretty clear that White Rose has some sort of time travel dream going on. And i loved how it was realisticallly explained to Angela by Philip that itís just a delusion.....AND his infatuation with Angela now makes perfect sense.

Poor Dom! She nailed it when she said her life is ruined.....it is. Unless Elliot takes out the dark army.

Who Was the guy at the end of the post credit scene? It felt like I should have known who it was but Iím drawing a blank.

I think that was the dude Elliot's dealer got her dope from, but I thought he got whacked somewhere along the line.


Yeah, Dom got the short end, and she's the only genuinely good person on the show.


I had a sneaking feeling that something like that was behind Phillip and Angela, so that really didn't surprise me too much.

I got some time off in January, may have to blow through the whole series again, just too many layers to grasp everything in one run.

Thatís who I initially thought it was but like you, I thought he was killed? So much has happened I just canít recall.

Indeed, although she was completely unfair in blaming it on Darlene. Darlene wasn't remotely responsible, Santiago and the Dark Army were.

Well....Darlene drug Dom back into the fray by trying to steal her credentials. At that point Dom was technically out of any danger because her boss had orchestrated the blaming of the bombings on Trenton and Mobely and freed up Tyrell. Had she not been caught and brought in.....the rest doesn't happen and Dom most likely goes on with her career.

BUT, obviously it wasn't all Darlene's fault.....just saying that she was initially responsible for Dom's capture and ultimately being turned into a slave.

Just caught up on the finale, and was that episode tense. Before that episode aired I was 100% either Darlene or Dom would be offed. and that post credit scene didn't help me being so tense the entire time. Just unreal. Season 3 is one of the most amazing seasons of TV.

I obviously loved the whole season, truly amazing in every way. And that final scene... super tense! That's Fernando Vega, the former hook-up of Elliot's drug dealer Shayla. The last time we saw Vega was when Elliot was breaking him out of prison, at which time Vega killed his brother for betrayal, and then left Elliot to find Shayla's body in the trunk...

That's right....thanks. For some reason I thought he was dead but had confused his death with Shayla's. Curious to see his attitude toward Elliot? That could be the perfect sort of shady character with connections one would need on your side if your fighting the Dark Army.

More like I'm curious to see what PLANS he has for Elliot. It was always strange how he felt he had this important "connection" to Elliot. And when it came down to it, Vera didn't kill Elliot...
