On whoismrrobot.com in the DA_remote machine (password: CATOPTRIC) there is the epilogue of Irving’s novel – Beach Towel.
Theirs had been a powerful entanglement. First Love – for the both of them. That opiate of desire and pining mixed with the withdrawal of emotional dependency. All that dopamine and oxytocin, those misguided hormones flooding their brains and filling their heads with romantic overtures. The two youths learning how deep that drug dug its hooks. Learning what love meant, what they thought it meant, but leaning nothing at all – except the pain of heartbreak. You can’t find love without first having a broken heart, that’s the sad fact of it. Real love, adult love, would only come after. Only come once their naïve conception of the thing had been shattered – their hearts put through a food processor and pureed to a mushy bitter paste. See, only after First Love was broken – and they broken by it – would the pair understand what love is and, by extension, their capacity for it; their deserving of it.
A hard lesson for Jonathan, who – trained by movies and books and music – believed in the notion of soul mates – of the One. He believed that she was his One Love. But the learning found in pop culture are escapist fantasies. Betrayed by Meg Ryan and Nick Hornby and Bono, Jonathan would find that “the One” was part of that fantasy. And so he would find eventually concede that there was not just One woman out there that was meant for him. But! There could be were a Few Ones… After all, what are the odds he’d find the one, singular person on the whole planet? But a few women that he was perfectly compatible with? That seemed like both better odds and a more pragmatic, grown-up view of romance.
The more the thought about it, the more Jonathan’s romantic inner self warmed to the idea. We are all like sailors on our own boats at sea, he thought to himself. Streaming through the whitecaps – searching for dry land, or treasure. His mind drifted, bringing the metaphor to life in the whirling ocean of his imagination. I will stand on the bow, he thought, and stare across the water – through my telescope. If I look long enough, will I see another person, standing on another boat, looking back at me? Will they signal me? We are too far apart to hear – but there are other ways. His mind’s eye filled in the details: The person, holding the flags of Semaphore (the traditional language of sailors, of course) – arms akimbo, this way, then that – Jonathan consulting his trusty Semaphore manual (for doesn’t every sailor carry one?), realizing the whirling flags are spelling out a single word, over and over, like a drumbeat calling to him across the waves: “DESTINY”.
The idea brought him solace.
Expertly directed. Beautifully written.
I just finished watching the movie and I have to tell you, if you like anything about this show (but really, what's not to like?) then do yourself a favor and check this movie out.
Do not watch the trailer, do not read reviews HEADS UP: HUGE SPOILERS ON MOVIE INFO SECTION (even though they are very favorable at a 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.)
Just dive in.
I felt as if Eron's character was written for Rami Malek, I got flashbacks of his portrayal of Elliot throughout the whole movie.
Let me know what you think, I'd love to dissect it here and it's resemblances to Mr. Robot.
To be quick and to the point, this show has changed my life. I had been a level 1 tech for a few years already, prior to seeing the first season. During the show, I had a quiet uneasiness about how I spent my time. How I was leisurely strolling through life, while others had attained a skill level with computers that I would likely never reach. This motivated me, it inspired me.
Since the 3 seasons, I have completed my NETWORK +, have become extremely efficient on the job with tools like powershell, have mainstayed a linux operating system and am a wizard with bash. Have become very competent with python and utilize programs that I've written, on the job. I've followed through on my CCNA, studied thoroughly Security +, and in the process of following the best practices and terminology of CISSP. There's so much more I want to learn, but without this show... it would've taken me much longer to find my passion. I am great at what I do and I want to get better at it, and it's not just a job. I've moved up. I just want to thank Sam for bringing your vision to life and even if we get only 1 more season, it has caused a profound positive impact on my life.
Forgot to tag bc last one was taken down!
This is right after Darlene tells Elliot she has been working with the FBI and that Angela is playing him too. Right after his emotions reach their peak he is seen storming into the building right as the ransacking starts. Later as others have posted we see Elliot racing around behind Angela as she goes on to complete her task.
I love “in real life” Mr. Robot moments.
Was walking down the street in NYC and a woman was walking up to cars and people trying to hustle her music that she had on CDs (no case, btw, just a stack of CDs).
When she tried to hand me one, in my head I was saying: “Oh no you don’t, Dark Army!”
Just wanted to share....is it time for S4:E1 yet?
Right, the cinematography honestly don't always have to be symmetrical... But this looks really intentional. Plus, there were other shots where two people are standing like that and the shot is not symmetrical. Does anyone have any idea about the purpose of such cinematography?
EDIT: Here is the context... Darlene comes by Angela's house in the end of Season 3 Episode 6. They argue over what Angela has done... https://imgur.com/a/GobQjgf This was the shot when Angela is justifying her action in front of Darlene. And then the shot I posted earlier happened, where Darlene says that this shit will hunt you to Angela. (You can actually see that Angela is closer to the the middle, while Darlene is the one who is closer to the middle in the shot I posted first.)

Considering how it's serial storyline dragged the show down in season 2, what do you think if the main storylines where Elliot/shayla/Vera, Elliot's mental state and personal life, his relationship with his shrink, Krista and a more episodic hack of the week storyline?
A subreddit for discussing the critically acclaimed USA network TV show *Mr. Robot*. *Mr. Robot* follows Elliot Alderson, a mentally troubled young hacker who is recruited to the hacktivist group *fsociety* by their enigmatic anarchist leader "Mr. Robot". Their mission is to wipe out all consumer debt by targeting the mega-conglomerate E Corp.
