Whoa. More cray, cray. I'm beginning to truly believe I am crazy now.

Spoiler:
Didn't Mr. Robot, the dad, meet with crazy swedish CFO-wannabe? Was that Elliot thinking he was Mr. Robot, the dad? Now he comes to Elliot's apartment?

Less and Less makes sense and the more I like it.

From Variety:

Quote:
USA Network has postponed tonight’s scheduled season finale of hacker drama series “Mr. Robot” for a week because the episode includes a scene with similarities to the real-life murders that occurred on live TV this morning in Virginia.

“Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time,” USA said in a statement.
...
USA said the finale will air Sept. 2 in the show’s regular 10 p.m. timeslot. USA will sub in a rerun of last week’s penultimate episode to fill the void tonight.

Pretty good season finale. Yes, the show heavily borrows from Fight Club and V for Vendetta but I'm still really enjoying it.

Agreed, except...

Spoiler:
I hope they don't make Eliot Tyrell as well. I've been getting that vibe a few times during the season (especially when Eliot talked to Tyrell's wife in the last episode), but when he went to E Corp and talked to Tyrell's secretary, she didn't act like he was Tyrell.

Borrowed heavily and also paid homage. Pixies song in the penultimate episode for example.

Had a lot quality '90s references.

not sure why we are spoilering
Spoiler:
the thought crossed my mind like 1 time, but about a million things that point to that being impossible. Elliot couldn't be working at his cyber security firm and holding down a near CTO level job at Evil Corp. not to mention the wife and house, no way he could have those and not realize it. plus they once showed Mr Robot meeting with Tyrell, it makes no sense to show one personality meeting with another personality like that in front of Tyrell's security. i could probably point out about 10 other instances that it just wouldn't work.

the finale was pretty good. the missing Tyrell was killing me though.

not much else to say. maybe i'll think of something later when less busy.

I liked they way the handled the whole Mr. Robot identity thing. It didn't seem like a ripoff of fight club at all, which is what I was fearing.

the finale was horrible but I did like the line "I dont know who you think your are talking to, but I will try the Pradas next!"

Otherwise it was a filler episode.
