Elliot Alderson is back in the Season 3 trailer of Mr. Robot, the dramatic tale of a sexy computer programmer/hoodie salesman and his overbearing father, Jason “J.D.” Dean. In this clip, we see that fsociety, the gentleman’s club Elliot joined in order to up his social standing, is still holding exclusive glamping retreats with an extra-long waiting list, and it’s Elliot’s job to ensure all attendees have the proper gear in order to minimize their legal liability in the event of an accident.
Just kidding! But past seasons were such a mindfuck that anything could happen; if Elliot emerged in like, episode five as having manifested the entire earth via delusion and we’re all just living in his Simulation, it wouldn’t probably be so shocking. Hollywood Reporter, which debuted the clip, explains it as thus:
Based on the new trailer for season three, it’s clear that the next year of Mr. Robot will continue the tug-of-war between the feuding aspects of Elliot, with his increasing understanding of his own anarchic not standing in the way of the raging Robot within.
Okay! That doesn’t help at all, so here are things we know to be true: 1) Elliot is alive; 2) It looks like the bank armageddon is still happening; 3) B.D. Wong is still one of the best actors on television; 4) Rami Malek is still our boyfriend.
Season 3 of Mr. Robot hits the USA Network on October 11.
