Mr. Robot Season 2 Twist

Last night’s episode of Mr. Robot, “eps2.5h4ndshake.sme,” featured a pretty big twist that left some fans upset and others feeling it was too obvious all along. Our own Corey Atad has already offered a significant analysis of the episode, but I wanted to take a deeper look and also find out what series creator Sam Esmail has to say about the intention and response.

It should be noted that the following post delves into major spoilers for season 2 of Mr. Robot up through last night’s episode “eps2.5h4ndshake.sme.” If you haven’t watched the August 17 episode yet, please bookmark this post for a later time.

Mr Robot on Amazon

Like many of you, I was sucked into Mr. Robot, a television show which I’ve described as Hackers meets Fight Club, by way of The Social Network. It was surprising that a show of this quality could be a USA Network original series (and that’s not a slam from someone who doesn’t know that the channel has some good shows — I watch Suits). And to say that season one of Mr. Robot left us with more questions than answers is an understatement. USA Network has released the first teaser trailer for the second season, which plays up many of these questions but mainly: what did Elliot hope to accomplish, and what happened during Elliot’s blackout?

the brink

Thus far, the casting for Lemony Snicket‘s A Series of Unfortunate Events has been on point. Netflix’s adaptation got off to a great start by landing Neil Patrick Harris to play Count Olaf. Harris can be both funny (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) and sinister (Gone Girl), making him a good fit for the comical but frightening antagonist.

The latest addition to the Netflix series is Aasif Mandvi (The Brink), who will play the Baudelaire children’s beloved Uncle Monty. And there’s more for Mandvi fans: he will also star in Mr. Robot season two.

F Society hacked the Television Critics Association before the USA Networks panels in a video accusing us of telling viewers what to watch so they don’t have to think for themselves. Their video concluded with a veiled threat that they’re monitoring all of our Wifi usage, so we need better security protocols.

The Mr. Robot panel included creator Sam Esmail and cast members Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin, fresh off their Golden Globe wins for Slater and the series. Esmail was careful about season two spoilers, but big spoilers for season one follow.
