    Looking back, there are a lot of long running shows that ended this year. Elliot's conversation with other-Elliot was probably the highlight for me, as well as the talk with Mr. Robot on the train, with Elliot wanting so much to be in this world even though it wasn't his. He really should've consulted Dexter Morgan for tips on how to dispose of a body, though.

    Loved the visit back to Fun Society and revisiting moments from the series which, yes, typical for any final episode, but not out of place for a show like Mr. Robot.

    In the meantime, looking forward to Briarpatch.

    I dunno, this just felt like Lost's finale to me. It's the last season, and they just gave us way too much stuff, never answered half of them, and then had an ending that was supposed to blow us all away, but for me personally, I'm just wondering why this season wasted so much time on not answering anything, and instead, wasted it on the conclusion of telling us there was yet another personality of Elliot's?

    We still don't know much about White Rise or what the machine was. She just shoots herself, and that ended the backbone of what Elliott was going after. In the beginning it was E-corp, but then we find out White Rose and the Dark Army are the real threat, and that White Rose has some kind of particle accelerator, and she keeps alluding to time travel.....and nothing comes from it. She shoots herself in the head before a nuclear power plant could melt down, which Elliot somehow survived, and that was that. And in the end, what did we find out: that there was another personality of Elliot's the entire time called "The Mastermind", and we were just the "voyeurs". I mean, this just reminds me of Lost, when we find out "this was all just purgatory, and everyone died in the crash". Lost set up all of these crazy subplots in the last season, and nothing was really resolved, and instead, they just gave us one mediocre twist and left us with way too many unanswered questions.

    Am I missing something here? That was the correct interpretation of it, right? We just found out Elliot has a fourth personality called "The Mastermind"? That's basically it? I don't understand why they wasted sooooo much time on White Rose, or had us following all of these plans to take down these big corporations, just to tell us that Elliot has a fourth personality? These kind of twists work great for movies, but when you have tv shows that have hours upon hours of material, and you just end it with unanswered questions to major plot points that we've been following for years, along with giving us a random twist as the major send off....I dunno, whatever. I'm glad some of you enjoyed it, I think this is just emo-Lost.

    We don’t need those answers...

    Tyrell died from a gunshot wound, alone in the woods. It was his way of self exile after his failure to protect his family. He helped put Elliot in a play take down Whiterose, he Anakin’d his faults and bad actions.

    Whiterose was a crazy *****, who’s machine was simply a red herring and a lie. Price told us this... sadly Angela had to break mentally for her to see the truth. Whiterose played her, as Esmail somehow played some of us.

    There was great loss and great triumph in and around Elliot (Prime). And, that’s this story... a story of a boy who had many bad things happen to him. How parts of him came together to beat the external evil in the world. For everyone, but for mainly Elliot.

    Even the Mastermind/Monster learned to grow/change. He wasn’t pure anger or hate in the end. He figured out he and all of Elliot needed love - especially from Darlene.

    He told us this all in his eXit monologue and in the finale’s epilogue monologue.

    The only glaring “question” (if you can even say that) is the three days Elliot (4) was out after the 5/9 hack. I honestly chalk it up to him hiding it from us, which he essentially had to hide it from himself ala the jail arc. Those three days Mr. Robot/The Mastermind created Stage 2 with Whiterose.

    I feel dissatisfied for characters like Angela and Dom. After seeing this final episode, I now fully believe the rumors that Rami cheated on Portia and she was written off the show to avoid conflict. The one scene they do share together lacked so much warmth. I thought they'd at least show him marrying her.

    It'a also depressing for Dom, getting on that plane and now we know Darlene likely didn't go with her.

    I marathon this in two days, it's easily the strongest season since season 1. Unbelievable stuff all around.

    404, 405, and 407 were my favorite episodes.

    Esmail used snippets of the Halloween III score in Homecoming.
