Trivia

Deleted Scenes: In Santiago (Omar Metwally)'s apartment, Irving (Bobby Cannavale) has Elliot (Rami Malek) sit down. Irving tells the story of a beloved boxer who comes out of retirement to face the new, unstoppable champion. He trains old school and defies the odds and an early thrashing. There's no easy way out, but he puts his entire life on the line and goes the distance. He notes that Elliot has that going for him, while the Dark Army treats it more as a transaction. Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) notes that he just described the plot to Rocky IV (1985). See more »

Quotes

Elliot Alderson: I'm doing this for me. I can't live with what I did anymore. You're wrong. They won't win. Because one good thing came out of all of this; they showed themselves. The top one percent of the one percent, the ones in control, the ones who play God without permission, and now I'm gonna take them down. All of them.

Terrifying, satisfying, and utterly unpredictable; a beyond phenomenal finale.
14 December 2017 | by TouchTheGarlicProductionSee all my reviews

I have never been more scared for the fate of characters than I was in the first two-thirds of this episode. Season three has already shown the Dark Army brutally and remorselessly murdering two beloved characters, not to mention thousands of unnamed e-corp employees, so when this episode put three of our main characters in the line of fire, I was completely convinced that some of them were going to die.

It's such a rare thing to find a show that manages to give everyone a compelling arc without giving anyone plot armour, yet that's what this episode does so effortlessly. I did not see a single part of this conclusion coming, but in retrospect it all connects and makes perfect sense. This is the sort of television that only comes around once in a very long while, and I'm so glad I was here to witness it.

It is important to note, while it takes up most the runtime, the harrowingly tense and completely unpredictable sequence I've been talking about is by no means the only part worth discussing. The episode has several big reveals (each of which I saw coming, but were no less satisfying for it), some beautiful interplay between Elliot and Mr. Robot, and another fantastic post-credits scene.

This is the first time that I've come out of a Mr. Robot finale elated and deeply satisfied rather than angry and confused. For once, things were left in a way where I feel okay leaving them for a year.
