I'm not sold on that idea still. I just checked episode 2 again and both the girl and one of the guys in fsociety spoke to Slater directly.

Though he was standing right in front of Elliott at the time so I guess it could be construed as them talking to Elliott, and in his head it was Slater responding. That would be a bit of a copout though in my eyes.

I'm pretty much sold on Slater being in his head. As already mentioned, wandering into a high tech IT security place and sitting at his desk. No way.

Hacking/tech seems good but I don't see why he can't get his drugs off a darknet site.

Well **** me if episode 4 wasn't the trippiest piece of TV I've seen since twin peaks. I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on, love it.

It was a bit eh - fish!

No doubt that Robot is a figment of his imagination now though.

Yeah, the line by Angela during his visions where she says something about him only being born a month ago pretty much confirms Mr Robot is in Elliot's head.

I like that we find that Darlene's ex is part of the Dark army and is the guy who has now blackmailed Angela into infecting All Safe's network. The connections are all falling into place and tightening up the story.

I didn't think I was going to like this but I watched two episodes last night and had to force myself from watching another as it was far too late.

Just seen ep.3 and its great stuff. As already mentioned, it does feel like a weekly Fight Club show (This is how Den Of Geek put it and that's how it caught my attention).

The level of detail they're using to show hacking as well makes a nice change as it all looks so realistic and not all fancy graphics and animations like CSI for example.

Brilliant show, can't wait to see more.

Yeah. Slater was extremely passive this episode, Almost challenging viewers to spot it.

Unfortunately it takes away a bit of enjoyment from the show as you are constantly looking for it now.

Yet this week we have Slater and Darlene having a full on argument in front of everyone. Whether that's because Elliott was stood in the background and their roles had reversed I don't know.

What I do know is that it's taking away from the show as that is all I seem to notice during scenes with Slater in.

Oh and how on Earth would dumbass drug dealer bloke suddenly figure that Elliott had something to do with him getting busted?

Fantastic episode this week. Some interesting hacking & some dark twists at the end, aided by a powerful soundtrack.

Good episode, though it felt an odd turn in plot from the F-Society stuff.

Still no explanation how Vera (?) found out it was Elliott that put him in jail.

They showed Vera realising who he was at the start of Episode 4 after seeing the crime scene photos. He recognised the pill bottle.

And it was still completely unclear even after watching it again. I don't understand how seeing a photo of a pill bottle made him twig.

The final scene between Elliot & his therapist this week was a fantastically written piece of TV. Heartbreaking, honest, captivating & chilling...

Well that episode moved the story on a bit!

A lot confirmed, a lot still up in the air. Just two episodes of the season left and I cannot predict how this is going to end for any of them.
