New Mr Robot season 3 clip shows Elliot back at work – and that's just the beginning

BY LOUISE MCCREESH

A brand new clip from Mr Robot season three has dropped.

Th one-minute video was posted on the Emmy-winning show's Twitter feed in the early hours of Saturday (August 19) and shows Elliot (Rami Malek) at the Def Con CTF Qualifiers.

Def Con CTF is, of course, a real life cyber-security tournament, so it only makes sense that Elliot would beat the rest of the competition hands down. Which he does. In just two minutes.

But this wouldn't be Mr Robot without a bit of mystery, and the clip goes on to reveal that Elliot is busy trying to shut something down, although it isn't made clear exactly what this is.

It is hinted though that Elliot is trying to get one over on the Dark Army – the Chinese hacker group that's been disrupting world events over the course of the last two seasons.

"I can shut down their access before the Dark Army notices," Elliot says.

However, before Elliot can complete whatever it is he's doing, he is interrupted by his sister Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and a man we don't know yet, who orders him to, "Stand up, and walk with us."

But will he join them? And considering season two saw Darlene caught up in the FBI investigation of the hack, just who exactly are these people working for? Is this even happening after the events of season two or are we in flashback territory?

So many questions, and we'll have to wait until season three premieres in October to find out the answers.

Season three of Mr Robot will pick up with Elliot still recovering from being shot in the season two finale while New York City is now under military lockdown.

With Elliot out of action, it appears that his best friend Angela (Portia Doubleday) is the one who'll don the Mr Robot mask while chaos unfolds around her.

Showrunner Sam Esmail has already promised this series will be a brutal takedown of America in response to the inauguration of Trump and his administration so, brace yourselves for a wild season, everyone.

Mr. Robot returns on Wednesday, October 11 on Central in the US and later on Amazon Prime in the UK.
