It's been too long of a break, but I'll watch the conclusion. I want it to go batshit crazy with the White Rose stuff.

I don’t remember what was happening. It’s been too long. But. Excite.

I remember the ending but not much else. I need to watch some recap.
If I remember correctly, Elliot stopped the bombing of the E-corp building, but the twist was that the Dark Army target a bunch of other buildings which were blown up. Also something about China acquiring part of the Congo and time travel.

:messenger_fire: opening episode. Perfect Fall TV show too. Something about its dark nature bodes well for cold weather.

Anyone see the 2nd episode yet?
Holy shit!

I think the third persona is going to be

Phillip, Angelas Dad.

-This whole payback kicked off with the death of his wife. (Angelas mother)
-The mothers day tape was made by him and his daughter Angela.
-His personas are all between 20-30 years apart, the kid, Elliot, Mr Robot, Phillip.
-Phillip is actually him and his personas are younger versions of himself. Mr Robot is actually him and not his father.
-I don’t recall him being in many scenes with Elliot previously, this episode he was with both Elliot and Mr Robot.

I saw it, a lot of exposition in the episode and more of a setup, but still had plenty of good content.
I honestly don't know who the 3rd persona could be but I hope it's someone we've met before, introducing a new random character right now would be lame.

I dont think the third person will be anyone we know.

They have pushed parallel universes in this show heavily so I feel like it will just be an elliot from an alternate universe.

I also feel white rose isnt actually a cross dresser but we are seeing 2 seperate timelines.

Edit: actually it seems more like mr robot isnt just a figment of elliots imagination and is actually his dad from another universe hacking Into elliots mind.

I haven't seen this show, but I recently saw a clip from the first episode of season one. All I could I think was which computer hacker acts like this in real life?
The clip I saw:

The guy's like a walking bundle of computer hacker clichés.

What's the GAF opinion on the season so far? I'm waiting until it's complete before diving in and binge watching it.

I'm envious that others are enjoying it now though :messenger_grinning_smiling: :messenger_beermugs:

Remember how Game of Thrones was utter bollocks and delivered no answers on anything?

Well, this is the opposite. Ep 3 was a bit slower than the previous 2 but still contained more cognitive story than the entire last season of GoT.

So far this season is better then the last, and has not had lame biased political stuff in it.

The new seasons of the Xfiles were particularly cringe for this, there are several that make digs at Trump, I'm not sure they ever once talked about the current politics of the day when it was on air in the 90's. One of the critic's darlings Darren Morgan wrote an episode for the last season which has aliens telling our heroes at the end that we are banned from entering the larger universe, that "they're sure some of us are good people but we're not sending our best", like so ridiculously ham fisted and cringeworthy.

The funny thing is, it's so transparent that it only helps trump, because most of the digs don't make much sense anyway.

Tonight was a really interesting episode. Not a ton happened, but I was engrossed every minute. And even though not a ton happened, something about that episode still felt like it was going to have some kind of significance toward the end of the plot. Some foreshadowing and such.

Great episode which wrapped up a lot of the story. Glad we still have two more episodes to provide closure on the rest.

So are we ever getting an answer as to who the third persona is? Everyone seems to be ruled out already.
Probably true Eliot who is still buried somewhere deep because of something he did mentioned by Mr. Robot. Maybe he killed his father and he didn't die of cancer etc.

Dark Army boss?
I thought the deus group lead them initially but apparently not.

I'm pretty sure the third is traumatized elliot. A few episodes back it showed young elliot, his mom and mr robot in that conference room and the way mr robot spoke it sounded like timeline wise it was shortly after the hack and he was holding off on elliot finding out about the truth saying hes not ready and stuff.
