Yeah, probably. :lol Like I said, I had the same thought early on in the finale, but I just don't see how it would work. We Allsafe guy interact a lot with Elliot, and indeed inviting him round for dinner and stuff. His reactions to and interactions with Tyrell just don't fit with that.

This scene really bolsters my suspicion that Elliot is Tyrell also.
I was thinking that pretty early on in the episode, having not considered it before. Then again, the reactions of the Allsafe boss whose name I can't remember wouldn't make sense when he meets with Tyrell (and later when he tries to meet him after he's already been fired) if he was really Elliot. So I'm not sure it stacks up.

Those two instances are hard to get by....I was trying to figure out how that scene when Elliot stopped in to see Tyrell would have 'worked' if he were Tyrell. Unfortunately I've deleted that episode already so I can't re-watch it again to hear that secretary's wording, but it's a tough one to get past. I think you could possibly explain away the Allsafe boss knowing Tyrell also as Tyrell being 'hands on' at Allsafe or something? I don't know?

Might be looking a little too hard for it to fit...

She says Tyrell doesn't work there any more and then asks what Elliot wants there. I think that scene pretty much clears the air about that but until that point I could have bought into them being the same person.

Slight necro to say that this shit is THE SHIIIIIIIT. I finally got around to watching (okay, remembering) it and I just finished episode 1. Wow. Wowee. Wowooweewoo. That is awesome. Please tell me it stays this consistently cool!? I hope so and that S2 keeps it up.

Elliot's eyes ARE SO HUGE. They're like popping out of his skull at all times and it's so perfect and so creeptastic. Good lord, man; pop those suckers back into their sockets completely.

It is a tremendously awesome show from start to finish.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I am so anxious to see season 2. I'm cautiously optimistic that it can maintain the awesomeness of Season 1.....and I'm hoping it's not like True Detective or American Horror story where the First Seasons were so incredible that every season will be compared to them and fall short.

Awesome blossom! About to start episode 4. I am so into this. Fantastic material...gawd, now it's the 'are they gonna screw this up' phase in waiting for S2. I really, really hope they keep it going.

This is a must see new drama.  I have seen a first episode and is that good.

It's about a cyber security employee who is a hacker at night who's being wowed by an underground group bent on bringing down the big machine.

Great dialogue and a great storyline. I highly recommend it.

Did you mean "wooed?"

I mean...wowed is a word. Past tense of wow. "His hacking skills really wowed me".

I know...I just wasn't sure which way he MEANT it!

Wowed would mean he was impressed by what they did...

Wooed would mean they want him to join them.

So it could be either one!

Ahh, gotcha.

I just finished S1. Holy effing cow.


SPOILERTALK




So...even though I called the 'revelation' of Mr. Robot about halfway through (though still having a back and forth with myself until that episode), it was so clear that it wasn't really supposed to be the revelation so much as a 'here it is, your confirmation'. I fucking loved that right down to the very song that played at the end of Fight Club soon after the reveal to Elliot breaking the fourth wall as he did time and time again only to say "You knew all along, didn't you?"...they knew it was going to have comparisons so they pretty much said fuck it, we'll make it a direct homage and throw it in your face; it was beautiful. What an awesomely crafted show. I really, really have my doubts S2 will be as captivating but man do I hope so. Truly a triumphant showmanship of television at its best. Brilliant stuff. I'm interested in seeing where they go from here but jeez...I do hope on the opposite side of that token that they don't drag this out because it really feels like there's only a few other big points to cover and that should be that. They could easily end the series with S2 and honestly I hope they do because even then, like I said, it's going to be tough to reach that same caliber of captivation. I think it can absolutely be done but after that it's just going to get stale, I think. Unless some other big reveal happens and shit hits the fan again. I just can't think of what else could happen that's as big as this other than "Oops, they did it again!" which...would pretty much be horrible in my opinion. Keep it fresh, wrap it up and remain one of the hardest hitting shows.

Good point on the reveal Tio. There were a few of us here that were calling it pretty early on that Elliot was Mr. Robot....but the way they presented the reveal wasn't in a gotcha way but like you said, a confirmation of our suspicions.

And to your point about the story getting stale....I want to say that the creator of the show has a specific number of seasons he has in mind to tell his story. There is an article out there that basically says this was originally going to be a movie but once he got in to writing it he figured out quick that he couldn't tell the story in the confines of a film so he mapped out like 4 or 5 seasons of a show. I just hope he gets his full run to tell the story and doesn't get shafted ala Hannibal and Continuum....two shows that had a specific season arc planned to tell the whole story but were cut short.

Ah, that is great to hear. It's no coincidence that a lot of times the most critically and (well, sometimes) commercially successful shows are ones with strict guidelines to story and a clear end in sight. But yeah exactly as you said...man, that would just suck if it ended up being cancelled. The best shows seem to though...aaargh. Here's hoping.

Well yeah but in terms of completing the man's vision. Hannibal lasted 3 seasons but it's story was set to go much further. What Gman and I are saying is that the whole story is completed, which in this case would mean 4 or 5 seasons. Granted, whether I'll actually like that is up in the air because I'm having trouble in seeing what else could pop up that's more than...taking down the world's biggest evil company buuut hey if he's thought of it, I'm willing to watch it...IF it makes it that far.

It's truly a shame. And it sucks even more for shows that last that long, like Fringe, and end up falling just short enough. It impacts my wanting to watch them if I hadn't caught them while they were on as well. I'm still in the middle of Fringe but just knowing that the ending isn't all that it could've been is a real friggin' bummer.

I just watched the start of S2 and I thought that it was even better than the second half of S1 and I didn`t even think that would be possible at this point.

I told my brother that I wish I had the fortitude to not watch anymore episodes....avoid spoilers.....DVR every episode and then just watch the remainder of this season in one day after it was over. I did not want that episode to end.

The beginning of this season has been insane. The first three episodes were such a good set up leading to Elliot getting back on the console.
