So Elliot Alderson cum MR ROBOT is like this freedom fighting ultra-hacktivist with high friends in low places. He lives in New York metro, and rents his own apartment (no parents to support him). He is able to work at high level corporate jobs like Allsafe and then ECorp, which is an indication of no criminal history. His insistence on seeing a therapist must be on his own cognizance, meaning that he is voluntarily seeing a private counselor, who is not even privvy to his drug activities and therefore not some kind of state-sponsored anti-drug addiction counselor. His income level and own housing situation indicates that he is beyond the bracket for Medicaid so we must infer that he is paying the steep fees for a New York woman therapist, on his own dime.
Oh yeah, and he has his own drug dealer. Not some douchebag street dealer he’s got to be worried about for discounts, but a hot and kind of crazy sexy girl dealer who takes molly with him and fucks his brains out back at his own New York apartment. His best friend is a smoking hot blonde who rises to fame being the corporate bicycle (which must be scrutinously picked out amongst the dross of the MR ROBOT series), who offers to “get high and watch your favorite movie” with him. She of course goes on to become his shadow government controlled handler during “Phase 2” of Dark Army’s massive attack. Elliot is uniquely in position at all times and points in the plot to have access to the necessary exploits and vulnerabilities to pursue MR ROBOT’s ulterior motive and mission. He is uniquely lucky and gifted.
Needless to say this is show business, and we don’t want to identify with some street bum or lonely loser, but my analysis is this, and the point that follows:
Elliot Alderson cum MR ROBOT is the wealthy elite. He lives a dream which the average cybersecurity student or professional could only dream. Even a clandestine officer with an intelligence service would fawn over the kinds of opportunities granted him during his tenure as an FBI/Dark Army/ECorp mole. And although while operating with F.Society he attacks the corporate power structure as some kind of socialist equalizing force to topple the financial records, we see no personal benefit to Elliot from this action as he is in fact a member of the underworked and overpaid 1%.
