Just when I thought I was out...they pulled me back in.
May be this is unfunny corporate cooked April Fools' joke ? As Mr. World said - "trickery is what i do best". As i understand writers almost ran out of source material for central story. Anyway that's f*cked up.
That episode sealed the deal for me. Now i consider this show not only written good and wonderfully acted but having complex backstory and mythology. Not just fun story of the week, but massive story with arcs and complex plot lines weaving and intersecting. Like quality novel and not comics.
If Fight Club would be remade for TV-series about hackers, it would be Mr. Robot. Sure, a lot of exaggerations, but as realistic as Person of Interest and at least 10 time more realistic than usual TV tech (don't get me started on CSI: Cyber's bull).
