    I can't believe it's been almost a full year since the last episode.

    This might be my favorite response in this thread. :laugh:

    Did season 2 ever pick up after the first four episodes? I lost interest in season 2 really quickly after season 1 gripped me to a super binge watch status. I think I watched the whole season in two days.

    Just voice searched Xfinity to make sure it's scheduled to record and the live audio dropped and Eliot says "Hello Friend". Freaks you out the first time :laugh:

    My favorite show on TV. Pretty excited. Not sure if I want to wait to binge it all in one go though. S2 had some pacing issues that would have annoyed me had I not waited to watch them all together.

    Thanks for the reminder. Completely forgot.

    The first season was one of the best seasons of TV I'd ever seen. The second season, then, was disappointing but still "ok..."

    I hope White Rose was just playing Angela when she supposedly told her that there was a way for them to erase all of what happened (including their parents' deaths) and go back normalcy. It'd be a huge turnoff for me if they went with the crazy sci-fi time machine or alternate universe angle. I mean, I adore sci-fi but I personally don't think it has a place in this show. Hmm.. Or maybe she was talking about virtual reality? That would make a lot more sense and fit the theme of the show perfectly.

    Overall tho, it was a fantastic premiere.

    I love how completely they've turned Elliot and Mr. Robot into two separate people. It's one thing to have everyone talk to "Mr. Robot" but assume they're talking to Elliot (since they're not aware of the split), but now we've got Angela being able to recognize which personality is in control and actively scheme against the other personality.

    The scene on the bus was great TV.

    I don't think they're going to actually reverse what happened, I think it was more metaphorical. I guess we'll see, though!

    I think Angela's character development has been truly excellent. Her arc is outstanding.

    Thought it was a great ep. Loved the tie-ins from FSociety's moves in season 1 and 2 to current events ;)

    The new character Irving is straight out of Fargo on FX. Maybe he got lost and wandered on to the wrong set.

    Maybe there is something to the Back To the Future 2 theory after all

    I'm guessing it will either be a VR-type situation or a false promise where Angela does as they ask only for Dark Army to back out later on.

    Agreed, really hope they don't veer off into time travel, seems odd with the atmosphere of the show. I got turned off from Lost because it made no sense.
    Really strong episode after a slightly disappointing season 2. Best writing of any show on cable.

    Decent season premier. I'm not sure the Dark Army has even promised Angela what she told Elliot, unless I'm forgetting a scene. Angela is trying to manipulate Elliot to distract him away from what Mr. Robot is doing for them.

    In the first scene you see that White Rose is building some sort of massive machine so she definitely promised Angela something. Maybe it's a large hadron collider in order to access a parallel universe? Or some sort of VR thing? Or a supercomputer to build and connect everyone to a mass simulation? Whatever it is, I'm glad Esmail confirmed that it's not a time machine. :laugh:

    Yea I know about the giant machine in the first scene, but I was wondering if I missed some scene where White Rose told Angela what she told Elliot, since people in this thread were talking like the Dark Army promised her that. To me I took what she was saying as a manipulation of Elliot after it was revealed that she was helping the Mr. Robot personality.

    Time travel. They're trying to replicate what Angela saw in the White Room. Remember, she was trying to tell Elliot?

    Scene with his therapist and Mr Robot coming out was A+ television.

    That and the scene later between Mr. Robot and Darlene were both intense as hell.
