Mr. Robot Season 3 Finale Recap

The Mr. Robot season three finale is in the books, but our coverage of the episode is just getting started here on Post Show Recaps!
While Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) takes time to recover from being under the weather, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) is joined by actor Omar Metwally to discuss his work on Mr. Robot as Agent Santiago, the Dark Army operative axed out of the series as of the season three finale. In their conversation, Josh and Omar discuss Santiago’s last stand, how viewers might look differently at the character given what we know now, the origin of that Medieval Times photo shoot, vampires, and more.
Josh and Antonio will be back together to recap the season three finale in fuller detail in the coming days. Send your feedback for that show through our feedback form or by e-mail. Make sure to keep checking in for a couple of other bonus podcasts along the way as we bring the season to a close.

    Another great season of Mr. Robot, and have really enjoyed Antonio and your accompanying podcasts. My question would be, how do you feel that Darlene will react to Dominique DiPierro’s final conversation with her, going into season four? Thanks again

    The Santiago scene was heart breaking… Another great episode to cap off a great season.

    I actually cheered for Leon and then realized he was still acting under White Rose’s instruction.

    Phenomenal show from the writing to the acting to the cinematography.

      Irving shocked me. I never suspected he was THAT kind of crazy. All the heavy breathing too, as if his crazy had been locked up too long.

      • TrentC

        Yes and then Irving’s next line – Give me a minute while I center myself,(which usually implies a relaxation phase) and then he really starts laying into Santiago’s body with the axe!

        Is it coincidence that Irving watches Wellick chop wood for whatever amount of time when Wellick is hiding, then Irving chooses the axe as the method to kill Santiago?

        We assume the killing was specifically done to convince Dom she has to get onboard, but man…did they really have to use an axe to drive home the point so to speak?

        • XmanIce

          I think he used the ax instead of a gun just because he wanted to. Like it had been too long since he really got to kill someone
