Watched the first episode and thought it was cool. I liked the realistic spin on hacking and just not being all "HACK THE GIBSON FUCKER HACK THE GIBSON!"

I'm getting caught up on this show. Happy "normal" Elliot from Episode 3 is awesome, I just know this a precursor for bad things to happen :-(

Speaking of real people showing up in the show, I couldn't wonder if there was some significance of Obama portrait above Elliot and Tyrell during the lunch scene at Steel Mountain.

As someone who was in the military my first thought was Steel Mountain had some sort of military application.

I just wish I'd waited to binge on this one because there's tonnes of details I've missed from the whole week-to-week forgetfulness thing. I know I won't watch it again until the next season is finished.

I love binge watching, but I feel like I miss out minor details while binging. What I enjoyed about watching Lost and Breaking Bad was getting on SA and pouring over all the little minor details.

Haha, each to their own and all that, but doing exactly that was what almost ruined season 4 of Breaking Bad for me. Remember all that retarded drama about "did Mike shoot Jessie?" For page after page.

Yes there is stupid stuff like "Sharon was stabbed" but for the most part I enjoy the discussion in these threads

It has just occurred to me that the redhead FBI agent is Grace Gummer.

Daughter of Meryl Streep.

Thank you. I couldn't figure out why she looked so familiar and I didn't recognize her name. I didn't bother to look at her Wiki or anything like that.

All of Joanna's obnoxious wannabe attempts at being a Machiavellian chessmaster and being the scuzziest human being alive blew right the gently caress up in her face. Serves her right.

Now all I need is Price's smug veneer to crack so bad he's reduced to a gibbering Emperor Palpatine type.

That surprised me the most in a very surprising episode.

The reference to "the gently caress-up with Berenstain". Apparently a "Project Berenstain" was mentioned last season but I totally missed that. Not sure whether it's a genuine plot point or just a nod to that meme that people won't shut up about because the internet misremembered their childhood for them.

Wikipedia says 4

Any speculation about whats left?

Wellick is in custody
Stage 2 went off without a hitch
The Dark Army has everything they want (Congo, Bitcoin, E-Corp being destroyed)
Elliot and Mr. Robot have seemingly made peace with each other

I'm really at a loss of what could still be left, outside of loving alternate dimensions. Whatever is left I'm going to strap the gently caress in and enjoy it!

What episode sparked this time travel/alternate dimensions thinking?

Primarily it was the episode where Angela met Whiterose, but there has been other talk throughout the series

Did they? Or was Mr Robot just keeping Elliot busy while the rest of the bombs went off?

O poo poo thats loving cagey if true. I really don't think Mr. Robot knew.

I'm not a music fan, but loving a the music playing during the leadup to Santiago vs Wellick was incredible.

Edit: Goddamn! What a loving episode! Season 2 was a let down, but goddamn Season 3 is hot fire. Every episode is awesome from the acting to the blocking to the music (especially the music). What a show!

I keep hearing this show is great but it sounds like the most depressing thing ever. How can anyone watch this given all that's going on in the world?

I don't think it's relentlessly depressing. It has its "gently caress Yeah" and "Holky poo poo" moments too!

Maybe it's because I enjoy watching this show in altered states but when did Whiterose confirm that she was just loving with Angela about the time travel stuff? I'm sure it was during the scene at Mar-A-Lago but I don't remember that comment being specifically stated.

Why does whiterose need the Congo? Iíve never understood the relevance of that place for the plant.

I've always assumed the Dark Army wants to use the Congo as some sort of haven to protect them from extradition in the outside world.

Fried Watermelon posted:

Would they even want to undo the hack though?

I can see Elliot talking to Darlene about it and then bringing in Dom. And then it ends with them being shutdown because Ecorp, the FBI, and Whiterose don't want the hack to be undone.

I suppose they could make it public that things could be reversed, causing more unrest with the public.

Very interested to see where the last few episodes go.

Why don't you think Ecorp wants the hack undone? After the way White Rose treated Price last week undoing the hack would be a huge boon for Ecorp (not to mention the Ecoin).

God loving drat this show is so loving good. On one hand I hope there isn't any time travel bullshit, but on the other hand it's been teased so hard that at this point it just seems purposeful to gently caress with us.

I rewatched Season 2 over the last 3 days and outside of Elliots plot I found it to be pretty compelling in a binge watch format.
