What a great way to end a great series.
Bloody well written, and overall just a great expierience.
Mr. Robot was masterful and sits near the top of my favorite shows list. Unlike a lot of shows that use anarchists as villains, wildcards, or plot flavoring, the very heart of the show was anarchistic in a way, exploring power structures, what keeps people in power, and how revolutionaries fight against corporations and the state. And it didn't provide any easy answers or cast anything as black and white. It showed the different reasons people rebel (personal, practical, ideological), how revolutionary movements are co-opted and manipulated for profit, and examined the psychological strain of trying to balance damage against the system with cost to innocent people.
Extremely impactful show and I think it'll take years for a lot of people to realize just how subversive it was.
