Robot wasn’t real; he was a personality Elliot constructed based on his own father, Edward Alderson. Elliot had (and has) Dissociative Identity Disorder, meaning that like Elliot, it was tough for us to trust what we were seeing in the show at any point. As it turns out, Elliot wasn’t just an unreliable narrator…

What is Elliot’s mental illness?
GROSS: Elliot is mentally ill. He has dissociative identity disorder, which used to be known as multiple personality disorder. So parts of himself he’s kind of fragmented into other people who he thinks he’s talking to or seeing.
Was Elliot abused in Mr. Robot?
The purpose of Mr. Robot remained unclear until December 2015, when Krista Gordon, forced by Fernando Vera, led Elliot towards an epiphany: he was sexually molested as a child by his father, and his mind produced the Mr. Robot persona as an attempt to cope with his trauma.
What did Mr. Robot do to Elliot?
Robot with an unshakable filter of tragedy. The big reveal? Elliot was sexually abused by his father Edward Alderson (also Christian Slater). We come to this horrifying realization in one of the darkest ways possible.
Does Elliot have schizo?
Yeah, he was never diagnosed with schizophrenia. Again, Elliot self diagnoses himself with schizophrenia in the pilot, but I would not classify him as that.
Who is Elliot’s third personality?
While Mr. Robot has gone meta in the past (see: Season 4 premiere credits fakeout), some fans believe the show is saving its biggest twist for the end, and will reveal that Elliot’s third personality is Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail.
Is Krista real Mr Robot?
“The real Elliot,” says Mr. Robot. There she tells Elliot, “He tried to tell you, you’re not Elliot, you’re the mastermind.” Elliot is thrust back into an alleyway. Eventually, the Eureka moment comes in a therapy session with his therapist Krista (Gloria Reuben), who you know is not really Krista (so she says).
Is Tyrell wellick Elliot?
Sam Esmail said in an interview that the shooting was designed to establish unequivocally that Tyrell is real. That’s why Tyrell said he loves Elliot, “he loves this personality” that has the capacity of hacking and comunicate with Joanna.
Was Angela Moss abused?
In addition, in the ‘whiterose’ scene, the child version of Angela has been abused and beaten (but later claims, as abused people often do, that the abuse wasn’t real). We also know that Angela and Elliot have deep feelings for each other.
Why did Elliot go to jail?
Summary. The knock on Elliot’s door was the police to arrest him for hacking Lenny, Krista’s ex, and stealing his dog. He pleads guilty; he’s in jail the next day with Ray as warden, establishing his illusion. Even though his sentence is for 18 months, he’s released 86 days later due to the Dark Army’s influence.
Did Elliot get molested?
Elliot was sexually abused by his father Edward Alderson (also Christian Slater). We come to this horrifying realization in one of the darkest ways possible. Vera spends all of “Proxy” trying to force either Elliot or Mr. Robot to explain the latter’s existence.
Is Elliot Alderson a real person?
“I will not give an opinion on Aadhaar as I don’t think I’am legitimate. However, I think this project deserve the maximum [security],” he said. Hi #Aadhaar !
Is dissociative disorder real?
Dissociative identity disorder is a real condition, and it’s not quite as rare as you might imagine. Living with dissociative identity disorder (DID) means you may experience shifts between at least two separate identity states, or personalities.
Is Elliot a genius?
When it comes down to it, even though Mr. Robot is more confident than Elliot (Rami Malek), it’s Elliot himself who is the true genius. He came up with the brilliant plan for Five/Nine, even if he needed to rely on a dissociated personality to go through with it.
What is acute paranoia?
Paranoia involves intense anxious or fearful feelings and thoughts often related to persecution, threat, or conspiracy. Paranoia occurs in many mental disorders, but is most often present in psychotic disorders.
