There’s Something Very Strange About Our First Peek at Elliot in Mr. Robot, Season 3

***Spoilers for Mr. Robot through Season 2 follow. Spoilers***

EW scored the first Mr. Robot Season 3 photo, along with a few comments from showrunner, Sam Esmail about what’s coming our way when the series returns this October.

That’s not very telling, is it? Perhaps we should zoom out …

Ah, now that’s better. Well, will you look at Mr. Alderson, all (track) suited up to head his company — so to speak. There’s a large group of hackers working on whatever it is they’re working on, and hold on just a second … I think we need to zoom in again.

If Elliot is in the left foreground of the new photo, then just who is that behind the curly-haired, grey hoodie dude, with EXACTLY THE SAME HAIRCUT AS ELLIOT? Is Elliot having an out-of-body moment again, standing aside and watching the scene as if he’s not in it? Or … dun dun dun … are we about to be introduced to Rami Malek’s twin brother, Sami? Why are there 2 Elliots?

It’s more likely the former situation happening, but I’d like to put out the word to Sam Esmail that we fans are ALL IN for a double-Malek season. We’d absolutely love being even more confused than we already are.

As for actual, non-conjecture tidbits on Mr. Robot‘s third outing, Esmail offered only a hint about the overarching theme — “disintegration” and this cryptic clue:

Season 3 is about Elliot trying to bounce back and fight against the people who have been using him. Elliot isn’t going to take this lying down.”

Esmail also addressed fan favorite, Tyrell Wellick’s (Martin Wallström) return.

With Tyrell, we really don’t know much about his whereabouts or what happened to him. There’s a lot of that circular storytelling that we really delve into with his character this season.”

We need a proper trailer a.s.a.p.

Mr. Robot also stars Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, Christian Slater, Grace Gummar, B. D. Wong, Stephanie Corneliussen, and Season 3 addition, Bobby Cannavale; it returns to USA this October.
