Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

You're really grasping at straws.

Have a blessed day, hope it gets better.

I think it's getting to be a little much. The buzz behind this show died out pretty darn quick this year, which was disappointing but I can definitely see why.

I didn’t mind the episode, just had hoped for more things to be answered. But I see the point in saving it for S3.

The FBI knowing everything, Tyrell actually being alive and real (could be a trick?), and knowing what Phase 2 were good advancements, but does anyone know what the go is with the bit after the credits? Want to take a guess?

Tyrell being alive is not a trick. He was acknowledged by the Dark Army guy at the abandoned building and Angela was speaking to him on the phone at the end of the episode.

As for the bit after the credits, I think they are safe for now. If Leon (read: Dark Army) wanted them dead, he woulda sliced their asses already. Not sure of what use they are though, especially with all that talk of "undoing" the hack.

Whoops, will have to re-dvr to watch the post credits jawn. Always delete once credits start so I don't catch any of the previews.

Yeah I don't bother with the previews, but when the credits roll with 5 mins left you know somethings up. Similar to last season.

We found out a character isn't make believe.

We found out who's texting Joannna

We found out what phase 2 is, which is to blow up another building with documents in it. (Wasn't that in season 1?)

We found out the fbi knows a bunch, and let themselves get hacked not once but twice for the 'long con' ?

Wasn't this already posted a bunch of times?

We also found out how Romero died.

Was it revealed who killed Gideon? Why did Mr Robot lie about shooting Tyrell?

No.

To distract Elliot from Stage 2. The Mr. Robot side of his personality does not care about risking lives or killing people to accomplish their ultimate goals. He knew, if Elliot found out about the plan, he'd try to stop it. If you think back to Season 1, their original plan was to blow up a gas plant next to Steel Mountain to destroy the electronic financial records, but Elliot was not OK with that, which led to a change in plans to a non violent approach in overheating the hardware.

If after all that they play it out as Elliot shooting himself I might be out. It doesn't seem like that's going to happen though.

Ok, but what about the other part you edited out of my quote?

Because I agreed with that. Just pointing out that you don't see anyone that's real interacting directly in person with Tyrell in the episode. He's also walking around in broad daylight being the most wanted man in the world. Though unlikely, feel like Esmail left the door open a crack for Elliot taking on the Tyrell persona to complete stage two because like you said Elliot isn't capable of that himself.
