I think that's my problem. The show started out as a hack to bring society down (which was silly but there was a plot), and interesting looks at the haves and the have nots of this society, and some of the shadowy organizations who muck around with the rules. It was done well, and that alone intrigued me.
And oh, BTW, the guy we saw Elliott talking to throughout the season WAS ONLY IN ELLIOTT'S HEAD. That was the mind bender at the end of the season that made Mr. Robot must see for me.
Then White Rose and the Dark Army became a centerpiece to what was happening, and that was interesting. It had real consequences, with characters dying, freaking out or on the run. The original hack turned out to be not especially thought-through by the hackers, but it had awakened other forces that maintained my interest. And White Rose herself was a great character. And Dom and the FBI were on the trail.
Meanwhile, we had Elliott and his various personalities - who else was only real to Ellliott? Interesting, I guess, but only meaningful if it impacts the overall mythology.
Cut to this season ... aside from poor Angela being whacked, what has happened? We had a vanity episode where no one talked, we've had multiple speeches from Big Bird and his quest to make Elliott his teammate (which ended with a whimper), we've had a brief bit of intrigue with crazy Janice (who is now dead) ... and we've had this looooong, stretched out quest around Elliott, his personalities and his integration which, as a reveal, had the least surprising cause ever.
Where is White Rose? Why does WR say she and E are on the same side, and what is WR's secret project? What is next for society and how does the DA figure into it? Who is combating the DA aside from Elliott? If Elliott does the Cypress Bank hack, what will happen? What is Darlene's fate? What, ultimately, will be Elliott's fate?
THAT is what I want more of, and it feels like most of this season after the first two episodes has been running in place.
