i just started this (i'm on epiaode 4), and have had some stuff spoiled (slater is a personality based on elliot's dad, darelene is elliot's sister, elliot's dad abused him, there is another personality)Toggle Spoiler so i'm gonna tag my question to (spoilers for season one and maybe two)

is it for sure darlene isn't the other personality? when elliot returns to the hideoutfir the first time, mr robot stands directly between elliot and darlene to answer a question she seems to be directing at elliot. later when elliot returns to his apartment with shayla, shayla doesn't seem aware of darlene and then when darlene tries to introduce herself, elliot stands between her and shayla the same way mr robot did earlier.Toggle Spoiler

welcome to the show, neck
I thought season two was sort of a drag (but still good) but seasons three and (presumably, so far) four are great

Season 2 improves a lot when you watch it without a week between each episode

Yoooo that was remarkable.

I love that they made the whole thing a stage play and the gun didn't even come back in the final act, it was the knife.

This show and this season are a masterpiece. Someday it will get the recognition and respect it deserves.

this

DVD box sets in the 2000s and then watching season 2 of Mr. Robot via the USA website week-two-week cemented that the weekly episodic model is the worst, broadcast/cable networks can eat shit.

that being said, the Netflix strategy of "our originals don't need endings for their episodes since everyone is binging anyway" isn't a good model for TV either. i prefer watching 1 episode per night, then i'll bunch up the first 2/last2 eps of each season I watch. when I break my rule and end up watching 2 in a row mid-seasons that's how I know a show is one of my favorites.

Yeah I cant binge shows over the course of a day. I like to do 1 episode a day, occasionally 2.

It would certainly make sense but I'm hoping for a more shocking reveal than yet. Wasn't Esmail saying that no one had guessed it yet? I thought I remember people speculating almost immediately that the 3rd personality was kid Elliot.

Also, the 3rd personality was the one who initially spoke with Vera at the beginning of the season when he showed up at Elliott's apartment, per what Darlene said? Why would kid Elliott be the one to deal with him?

in the “other one” scene, it’s kid Elliot and mom-image who are talking about Elliot, Mr. Robot, and The Other One, so the other one cant be kid elliot

Yeah was about to post that. It can't be kid Elliott.

Dunno how I feel about it, but it could be "us", right?

lol I kind of like that as a thread to pull on, and it has a ring of truth since Elliot’s been talking to us for the entire show

but “we” didn’t talk to Vera ?

I think trying to spin a cinematic unreliable narrator together with breaking the 4th wall is a bridge too far

Vera didn't talk to Elliott then, just Darlene. She relayed the message to Elliott, I thought?

Edit: oops. Read that wrong. I was thinking the tag at the end of season 3.

I do like that the biggest plot thread has been wrapped up and the last 3-4 episodes can go in lots of different ways

In the preview for next week Elliot says he's going back to Washington TownshipToggle Spoiler so I think things are about to get weird

I wouldn't worry, they did this already when Elliott was in jail.
