There has been a lot of buzz around the latest season of the acclaimed hacker drama/tech-thriller series Mr. Robot, with many already calling it the most epic season yet.
Mr. Robot is set in 2015, where its reality and ours diverged in the wake of a massive hack on the fictional E-Corp that destroyed the world’s economy.
In the last episode of Season 2, Elliot Alderson was struggling with a gunshot wound courtesy of the not-imaginary Tyrell Wellick, straight after it had been revealed that his alter-ego/father, Mr. Robot himself, was planning to destroy E-Corp’s physical databases and throw the world into disarray.
However, there is speculation that the real cliff-hanger is rather Angela’s (Portia Doubleday) involvement and complicity in all of it.
Mr. Robot continues to take place in its ‘alternate world’, where Obama is President, but in Season three, Elliot realises his mission, and needs help from Angela to tackle it.
Season 3 also explores each character’s motivations and the disintegration between Elliot and Mr. Robot.
