This show is just on a different level than what USA has put out. Very unique and something special in the cards here. It's just so ****ing well done across the board. And that twist. Goddamn. Only two episodes left. I can't wait to see where this goes and what it means for a season 2.

Slater is 11 years older than Malek IRL, plus there's that photo of Mr Robot with a PS3 controller next to him, considering the level of detail in the entire show, I highly doubt this is a mistake.

The Empire Strikes Back twist was cool.

After seeing the preview for Wednesday's episode, I'm pretty sure that Mr. Robot is genuinely real. However, I have NO IDEA where they're going with all this, but I can't wait to find out.

Fight Club twist and Where is My Mind at the end? I'm sure the Internet will love that.

I really hope Elliot is setting Tyrell up to take all the blame in Fsociety activities. I'd hate for him to hold power over Elliot for to long.

I'm not really smelling a happy ending here, so I don't really think Tyrell is gonna be going anywhere. I've been wrong about a lot of stuff with this show though.

God Damn.

How can they so masterfully present the twist last week indirectly, then trick you into thinking it actually isn't going that way... all to actually follow through with the twist so damn well?

****, this show is so great.

That Fight Club/Pixies homage was actually nice, I see at as a way to pay respect-honor the film and Fincher. Sadly, the interwebz might take it as a cheap thing or something.

Elliot just wants to save the world.

"You knew all along, didn't you?"

Absolutely. Best new show in a LOONNNGGGG time. Hopefully this opens up a world of opportunity for Rami Malek. He's killing it in this show.

I do have one question. Who the hell was Tyrell talking to in the car when he was talking to Christian Slater? Elliot? Because if that's the case it kinda makes the end of tonight's episode redundant. The other thing I love about this show so much is that you, as a viewer, are just as confused as Elliot. They did such a smart thing by making the viewer a participant in his mental illness so we never really know what to grab onto just like Elliot. It was a very smart tactic, and I give Sam Esmail a lot of credit for pulling it off.

Btw...IGN said to make sure to watch through ALL the credits for next weeks finale. Clearly they have some inside info.

Remember when a lot of people thought about the Fight Club thing and thought it'd be a let down when it turned out to be exactly that?

Yeah....... They nailed it, they spend a good chunk of the episode having you thinking Mr Robot might be real after all, then the cemetery, and I'm like "oh you smart Esmail, you smart". It's done and presented in such a way that it feels totally earned. Rami slaying it as usual.

@guitarsingerguy: Rami said on the Grantland podcast that he's receiving tons of offers, even so barely after the pilot aired from notably David Michod of Animal Kingdom and The Rover fame, not bad heh?

When Mr. Robot started coughing in his store I knew he was dead from cancer. You see him smoke constantly, and then there's a flashback and he was coughing, I basically knew. But last week, I thought he was real.

Yeah, it was almost the opposite of Fight Club. Instead of it coming out of left field, they planted seeds for both possibilities, and it paid off in spades.

I like how the show intentionally wears its influences on its sleeve. The Pixies song is an obvious example of this. Another one would be Elliott saying "I'm pretty f***ing far from okay" in an episode that mentions Pulp Fiction. And then of course you have Tyrell putting those rubber gloves as he discusses how much he enjoyed killing that woman; it felt like a shoutout to Patrick Bateman.

I'm glad Esmail didn't drag the Mr Robot subplot out. Lesser shows would of milked the identity plot line for all its worth but you can tell Esmail has plenty of other ideas lined up that can advance the story.

The mystery of why Elliot Anderson has no trace online and is a ghost remains.

I love how we were lead to believe Elliot was a little crazy but in control only to find out he is super crazy and a lot less in control.

Looks like White Rose and her Dark Army torched the Data recovery place

Tricia Brock CRUSHED this episode of MR. ROBOT. This is, on balance, the best directed show on TV right now.

Also, do we think this is the end of Christian Slater's character on the show? I really hope it isn't. I almost want Elliot to embrace how bat **** he is.

It got picked up for another season before it even aired. I think it got a lot of streams on their site, cause they released the premiere a month early.
