So I finally caught up with Mr. Robot.
Holy shit i motherfucking knew he was in prison! They kept alluding to it. The framing of every shot in this show is extremely deliberate. Everything about his 'new friend', his 'routine', etc. But thats not all. There is still more going on. More with "Darlene" and "Angela" for starters. Since the end of Season 1 and where we are now we only know partial truths. There is so much to make sense of to reconstruct reality. What happened with the big hack exactly? Who did what? How exactly did elliot end up where he is and how. is there a plan? who is still an independent actor? what is still interpretive? are certain characters really dead or just 'dead to elliot'? got to figure out who's lens we're looking through.
The best was mr robot doing to elliot for one episode, effectively what elliot has been doing to himself and to us (the audience) all season. And there is a lot in that episode to unpack too.
More and more this show is resembling 'The Prisoner'
I still need to get caught up, think I only saw the first two episodes, then was on vacation for a week and missed the next one, and it wasn't on Showcase on demand, so I haven't been able to catch up because I'm too lazy to stream or DL it from somewhere
Do you think this show has a spiritual connection with 'the prisoner' (60s TV show)? is Elliot really #1? Is Elliot a free man? Can we ever be sure who is working with or against him?
Its difficult to differentiate separate entities. Sometimes what seems like two people I suspect may be just two sides of one person, for example. The show is about internal conflict lots of the time.
I have theories
i just finished a marathon of season 2 and i really liked it
makes you question the show's reality as much as Elliott's questions his own reality
was there another post-credits scene and if so can someone tell me what it was? my DVR cut out....
