Watching again. Noticed that when Elliot first hacks Tyrell he finds it super easy and is shocked by it. Somehow he guesses the password contains Sweden’s independence day. Remember that in the last episode Elliot searches for and finds a flash drive in Tyrell’s truck and thinks its Mr. Robot’s and surmises he will know the password because he know he and Mr. Robot share some of the same memories. So it seems Elliot knows Tyrell’s password by the same mechanism.
There is an early meeting with Colby, Tyrell, Elliot, Gideon and Angela. Colby kicks Angela from the meeting through Tyrell. Then Angela is angry at Elliot. She tries to say it was for Elliot protecting her in the meeting. Elliot and Tyrell weren’t next to each other but in retrospect it seems again Elliot and Tyrell are the same person. Tyrell knowingly eyes Elliot put away a packet that would have fingered F Society and instead hand over a goose chase in response to Colby’s apparent rood treatmentvof Angela.
In a meeting with Tyrell and Elliot early on Tyrell makes clear his intrim CTO status is the result of the hack and he will take Colby’s place as a result, but he seems to need Elliot, in retrospect to make it stick. He doesn’t get Elliot, maybe Elliot’s deeper skill set is needed and fails, seems to know of that likely result when Elliot refuses in his employment offer in the meeting. All this despite Tyrell saying “I want you here where you belong.”
More interesting is it seems Colby may be part of F society or partially behind it. In the second F society TV anouncement, F Society refers to Colby as their leader. But they also refer to themselves as being relentless. Now Elliot dismissed Colby as a “moron” a non tech literate CTO for carrying a Blackberry. But note Colby supposedly takes an interest in Angela offering her a job for being smart and relentless. Remember Mr. Robot saying you take a corp down limb by limb. Well, four E corp execs are down by the finale. And E. Corp CEO Phil Price tells Angela that Colby was impressed with her and Colby and that Colby is not easily impressed. Remember Angela gets Colby off.
The hack they plant in Colby’s name, that Angela clears him from, is the one through the root kit left in place that seems to enable the meltdown ultimately. Remember Phil Price confirms knowing who Elliot/Tyrell is to Whiterose at the cliff hanger and that he isn’t worried about the crash. It was just people that did it, his people and he is restructuring the company limb by limb.
Tyrell seems to be what they like wouldn’t be suprised if Tyrell is the actual physical body and shows up next season as the E corp CTO and Angela as another exec and maybe Whiterose as another with Phil and Terri still at the head.
