One response to “VoK 238: Mr. Robot (USA series) – Season 1

  1. Really good job guys. I was surprised that no one thought it was Tyrell at the door in the final episode. I feel like he has done too much and hasn’t realized his purpose to the plot to be dead, but I felt the exact same about Shyla so I suppose it could happen all the same. Though I have a great vision of the start of S2E1 with Tyrell being there and Elliott just internal monologing “C’mon you knew, you always knew. You actually probably told him to come here” The 4th wall breaks are awesome and I don’t see them passing it up
