Darlene be dead?

What a twist at the end of this episode... yikes
Kinda puts the whole story into a different perspective.

Darlene is

Spoiler

alive

and Elliot's Dad is

Spoiler

dead and is in Elliot's imagination and is also his alter ego (like when he meets with Tyrell).

Though I don't know why Angela

Spoiler

didn't just talk to Darlene when she needed help, even just to get a message to Elliot, seeing as they all knew each other.

Guessing Elliot didn't already

Spoiler

have Darlene's phone number because he would have wiped it during one of his obsessive cleanup moments...otherwise it would have been natural for them to be in contact as being brother and sister would be the totally legit excuse (rather than knowing each other as fellow hackers).

Re: Mr. Robot

Also, I just want to leave the lyrics to Mr Roboto (by Styx)...I suspect it's somehow relevant to how this story came about. Also reckon there's a little of The Robot from Illuminatus Trilogy in there (the automatic man).

Spoiler

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto [どうもありがとうミスターロボット],
Mata au hi made [また会う日まで]
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto [どうもありがとうミスターロボット],
Himitsu wo shiri tai [秘密を知りたい]

You're wondering who I am (secret secret I've got a secret)
Machine or mannequin (secret secret I've got a secret)
With parts made in Japan (secret secret I've got a secret)
I am the modern man

I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide

To keep me alive, just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide, to keep me alive

I'm not a robot without emotions. I'm not what you see
I've come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
I'm not a hero, I'm not the saviour, forget what you know
I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control

Beyond my control. We all need control
I need control. We all need control

I am the modern man (secret secret I've got a secret)
Who hides behind a mask (secret secret I've got a secret)
So no one else can see (secret secret I've got a secret)
My true identity

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,

Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For doing the jobs that nobody wants to
And thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For helping me escape just when I needed to
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you, please, thank you

The problem's plain to see:
Too much technology
Machines to save our lives.
Machines dehumanize.

The time has come at last (secret secret I've got a secret)
To throw away this mask (secret secret I've got a secret)
Now everyone can see (secret secret I've got a secret)
My true identity...

I'm Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy!

Last line "I'm Kilroy" = the man looking over the fence :3 If you remember that phrase from this last episode (referring to someone too afraid to look over the fence)...Mr Robot is the one who looks over the fence.

Spoiler

Mr Robot aka his Dad really is alive

'cause this show wants us guessing at everything.

Re: Mr. Robot

Daddy exploits wayward son who turns out to be exceptionally good at hacking while off his meds. That has long been true with manic-depressives (on Wall Street they call these hotshots "lithium eaters" because of their meds). Trading on complex financial markets is one thing, developing and implementing complex hacks is something else.

Have to say I still very much hope not, Mr Robot as a concept is much more interesting than Mr Robot the magically ageless man.

Re: Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot reminds me a bit of "Who am i" which has a similar premise and also a twist.

I have absolutely no idea how the finale is going to unravel...

Not as far as I know. She

interacts with Angela, so unless all those scenes are a lie (and Angela is dead as well, along with all the people we've seen her talking with too) then Darlene is alive.

You're the second person who thought that, what was it that led you down that path (just out of curiosity)? I totally missed anything that would make me think that.

Spoiler

You remember the episode where Mr. Robot visits Romero (the black guy on the fsociety-'team')? China wasn't on board, I think, so the 'hack' was delayed. The fsociety -'team' fell apart, it seemed like the whole plan went to hell. At one point Mr. Robot would try to get Romero back on the team. Romero had doubts, because he had his super fast growing weed...
At the end of that scene Mr. Robot threatened him with his gun. Since Mr. Robot is just a hallucination; is the whole team a hallucination?
The end of the current episode has Tyrell & Elliot back at the arcade. Elliot explains to Tyrell what the whole master plan was behind is hack. It seemed like one of the few moments everything was real... That scene gave me the impression he did everything one his own. Given the nature of the show, I really can't say what happened and what didn't happen...
If he did everything on his own: Elliot is Fsociety? No team? No Darlene? Although it very much seems she is real (the kiss?) I can't remember from the beginning if they said something about Elliot having a sister.. Heck, I doubt everything at this point  wink

When we see

Spoiler

Mr Robot with someone else, alone, I think it's Elliot in his pure Mr Robot form - where he has completely lost himself and is on autopilot.

It's rather like the lyrics to Mr Roboto I posted up earlier - I really do suspect that song has a little something to do with the writer's inspiration for this story (in the way that creative people get inspired by a bunch of different things). The lyrics mesh with the idea of a

Spoiler

Mr Robot aka ourselves on autopilot - doing the dirty jobs people don't want to be aware of doing themselves. The end of that song reveals that this Mr Roboto is the only part of the person who is aware of the whole life, basically protecting that person from himself.

Re: Mr. Robot

Interesting!

Spoiler

I hadn't thought of Elliot's pure Mr. Robot form as a possibility. Somehow it looked like the writers wanted to elaborate the depth of Elliot's paranoia & delusions further. Seeing Mr. Robot with Tyrell in the car was just downright confusing roll

Yeah it totally was confusing. This is a really complex and clever show, definitely the best we've seen for quite some time - tons of depth and twists.

Tonight's Mr. Robot finale has been postponed and will now air next Wednesday, September 2 at 10 PM. See below for an official statement from USA :

    The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time



So sad the news today about the two reporters.
