This is the biggest copout in the history of television. Elliots schizo genius is the result of parental molestation. They trivialized a great character to make him appealing to normies right at the finish line. This is a bigger last minute bitch out than AOT. I'm not watching the rest.
>>
all the great father/son moments are utterly destroyed just for a cheap twist to get people to pay more attention when no one was watching. it didn't work. no one cared but the show is ruined forever.

Lazy writing under economic pressures always leads to shit like this.

YES
It's like the writers had to distance themselves from the father-son dynamic and make it palatable to Twitter/Tumbler trannies. I legit feel betrayed
>>
>>199990482
True Detective did this too. They revealed in the last episode that Rust's child died tragically thus explaining why he was a giga sperg. Hollywood can never have characters just be different, there always has to be a psychiatric explanation

Also you completely missed the point or you are just projecting.
It was established what sort of character he was and why within the first two episodes, the ending was a man after years of carrying all this weight around finding some sort of solace within himself.
I know this thread is ‘I can no longer relate to retard because he’s not my type of retard!’ But True Detective season 1 does not fall into that category.

>They trivialized a great character to make him appealing to normies right at the finish line.
They made him appealing to normies who like the outcast aesthetic (like you) from the very start by showing he's not an incel and has sex. But there's nothing wrong with being a normie, OP. In fact, I would argue that it's good. I envy you.
>>
>>199991233
The message of all of these shows is "every thing has a scientific explanation and we're all boring retards". I'm still waiting for you to provide the scene from episode 2 where it's revealed that Rust tragically lost his child

Uh huh. Elliot is potrayed as a sperg who loathes society(F Society) for 4 and a half seasons until his negro shrink reveals that his father was actually the cause of his anti social behavior. It couldn't just be that he was a genius, no no his white father raped him...

He was never a schizo or depressed tho. He could have sex and even had a girlfriend at one point.

He was normal enough to hold down a job while moonlighting as a saboteur/terrorist.

It fits his profile that most of his issues came from some sort of trauma

He tells Marty's wife at dinner. It was the first episode, 45 minutes in.

>>199991600
They established that Elliotts trauma towards his father was his guilt over acting like a spoiled sperg at the movie theater. His dad tried to reconcile with him and he cold shouldered him, Slater then passed out in the theater lobby and Elliot left him there on the floor and sat down to watch the movie. It was at that moment that Mr Robot appeared for the first time

I don't understand what you mean. What have I compared and with what? I just stated two facts about the show, that are not realistic in combination, and were most likely inserted specifically for normies to be more interested in the show. I didn't draw any analogies to illustrate any points.

I skip that episode on rewatch
>>
>>199991798
I didn't say he's not a sperg. I said that this with combination of not being an incel is not realistic, and most likely inserted specifically for normies to feel more connected to him / relatable. As I said, this show merely portrays the aesthetic of an outcast, it doesn't portray an outcast. It's still for normies. But there's nothing wrong with being a normie. It's good. So, I don't know why you're upset.

>>199990894
Anime and video games have been doing this lately with villains and anti-heros lately as well. It's like the writers catch wind of consumers siding with antagonists and they pull some shit to pry them away from any attachment. See: The Boys and AoT.

I skipped the entire rest of the series after the episode where the European dude with the ridiculously hot model wife starts pounding man ass. It happened very early maybe in S1 or 2. Does it get any less pozzed or is the rest of the show still full of man on man gay bareback anal sex?

How fucked up do you have to be to assume that his trauma was being diddled as a kid and not just his father dying?
>>
The show made it obvious early on that the father/son dynamic was much more fucked up then him just being pushed out of the window. I don't think its too far-fetched. The actual problem with the show is how contrived its reveal is. The episode itself is so fucking pretentious and the characters it resurrects only to push the plot forward are probably the worst in TV history. The drug dealer's backstory is so contrived it's almost comical.

This is the best episode of Television I've ever seen. It also makes perfect sense since all cases of D.I.D come from some intense early childhood abuse, it should have been expected. And it was very clearly intended from the start. Le Email man originally intended Mr. Robot to be a feature film, while some shit fizzled out like Tyrell and the FBI girl, Elliots arc was executed perfectly as it was always intended with the exception of Angelas involvement since her and Rami and irl drama

I've said it before and I'll say it again; season 2 is the pleb filter, if you get filtered by the slow character study schizokino and just want le epic anonymous hacker revolution show you should stop watching

>>199992157
No, there arent. In every flashback he is shown as a caring father who got fucked by cancer which in turn caused Elliott's whole agenda against E Corp. In contrast Elliott's mother was shown to be an overbearing cunt which is why he never cared for her. How does this nonsensical plot twist even make any sense? The entire reason Elliott went against E Corp was because he believed they caused his death. But no - now his father is a pedo who Elliott made his imaginery friend. Bravo Sam Esmail

I watched the first season. I knew nothing good would come of it. Anyone who watched past s1.... i just dont get it.

>>199995413
The first is the only worth one to watch. Thankfully it serves well as a standalone story. They also didnt do shit with Tyrell after s1. It's clear Esmail had zero idea ehat he was doing past it. After all the main villain is revealed to be a tranny who all keikakus everything and main goal is bringing his faggot buttbuddy back with a fucking time machine... Kek
>>
>>199990482
I mean I kind of always guessed that it was a thing ever since S1 but for some reason they have to make it a big deal in the end. if he was that traumatized, he wouldn't be imagining him as his guide. that being said, the series tried to shift its target audience way before that. ever since S1, Elliot's character got troll's remorse or something and acted completely opposite to how he did in S1. introducing the femcel detective should have been a sign who the new audience of this show is and that I should expect some bullshit ending.
they also obviously got cold feet with the time machine stuff that they were teasing for like 2 seasons, but I don't blame them, it was retarded from the start, I just wish they got out of it in a more clever way.

This episode was so ludicrous I think it was my shark jump moment in the show.
Seasons 1 and 2 were reasonably grounded in reality but then idk what Esmail began smoking and why he decided to turn Mr. Robot into a show with Fargo(TV) tier baddies and these yellow assassin saboteurs that seem out of a Hong Kong-sploitation movie.
The shit gets way too far fetched and worst part is that it doesn’t even swallow the absurdity pill and deliver us a worthwhile ending. Its a complete cop out and worse than status quo because one can rationalize everything as Eliot’s schizoid fantasy so “nothing really mattered bro”

If I cant stand one thing its an unwillingness to commit to a premise and he balked. Its one thing to be “deep and psychological” but its not worth abandoning the tangable plot that we spent 4 years invested in.
People compare the finale to End of Evangelion, but that’s wrong because Evangelion still went to great effort to tie up all loose ends and deliver a conclusion in the real world.
>>
Was anything in this show actually supposed to be a twist? I genuinely can't tell.
The moment Mr Robot appeared, it was obvious he was a split personality, and the moment we met Elliot, it was obvious the dude got diddled, and considering all the dad-window mystery shit it was fairly obvious who dun did it.
I stopped watching around season 1 or 2 and I was so surprised to realise this was apparently some "reveal" in season fucking 4.

Are Mr Robot fans just fucking stupid? Did this surprise anyone? Was it trying to?

That's just what you want to think desu. Nowhere is it stated that the parental molestation was the sole reason for Elliot's schizo genius, it's just there to explain his other personalities and blackouts.

>>199999920
Ironically, Mr. Robot's actual message is not to be a deluded tumblr tranny that creates fantasies about other people in their head (like you do, lol). Whiterose commits suicide because she can't let go of her/his delusions and Elliot's real personality re-emerges because he can. It's literally antiwoke.

How did you guys last that long watching this? The first season had promise but partway through the 2nd I bailed when it became obvious the show was sinking into predictable tropes and realism was rapidly departing the writing.

It came across like a poor clone of Dexter with a superbadass wounded hero hacker instead of a serial killer. I also got the sense that the writers would happily throw coherence out the window to make edgy plot points which is always a big red flag.

It was kino when the repressed trauma was his cool, loving Dad had a rage problem and had hurt Elliott, but when it became pedo shit it felt more like cheap shock value than a big emotional reveal. Esmail could have used the episode to have Elliott come to terms with his dad being violent to him and it would have been great, he could have ended the show the exact same way with the real Elliott waking up after stopping the plant meltdown, and it still would have worked.

Makes me wonder if Esmail was molested and repressed.

The thing that showcases the whole thing was an asspull is the fact that Angela's character is written off the show.

She was pivotal for the storyline, and then Email just fucked it. Probably not intentional, and had to deal with actor or studio issues, but let's not pretend it's all a part of the plan.

This was perfectly fin honestly. What WAS the copout was the Eliot we've been with for 4 season was a fake/just another personality. THAT was lame as fuck and just a way to have a final twist for the sake of it.

Also I hated the Darlene and Dom missing each other by seconds bullshit. it was like it was trying hard to subvert the troupe but took way to long to get there and it was ultimately for nothing and had no pay off.

It was just total retardation.

Honestly, it really started when everyone predicted that the narrative was really a Fight Club Tyler Durden story. And because everyone saw it coming a mile away, he started fucking shit up after that.

Like the scene with Tyrell's wife was so fucking good, and so fucking obvious they were going for the Tyler Durden thing, but nope, just invent an asspull and take it from there.

The moment it started going down hill is when he shoots him at the end of that season, and it doesn't result in him shooting himself.
