EW: The thing was that I really wanted to tell a story about this guy who discovers that he has dissociative identity disorder, while at the same time enacting this crazy plan. How does he live with that? How does he negotiate that? How does he reconcile all of that? That was literally the end of the first act. It’s funny because the whole reveal of Mr. Robot was considered this big reveal for our season ending, but from the film that I was going to write, it was essentially going to be the big setup. I likened it to The Matrix.
