“Mr. Robot” Reveals Where Elliot’s Really Been in Season 2
When we found out that Elliot had been misleading us humble viewers — the very people he called “friend” — since the beginning of Season 2, we were a bit surprised to be sure. But when we let him explain why he’d pretended that he wasn’t serving a short term sentence in prison for stealing a dog, we understood why. After all, we’ve seen “Orange is the New Black.” We know life is grim on the inside. And Elliot’s brilliant mind, as clever at hacking itself as it is at hacking computers, has never failed to dazzle us with its ingenious solutions. So sure, Elliot. Whatever you need to do to get through the day.
