When the series starts, in the first scene, we see a group of people in the shadows discussing, as Elliot is narrating about the top 1% of the top 1%. In those people, I can only identify Tyrell Wellick.

Has anyone else from that scene been visualised as a character in the first two seasons? Is there a plan for them?

  • @Rahul So they have not been revealed so far? I have seen all episodes of season 1 and 2, I just cannot link any other character to those Sep 17 '17 at 18:36

  • I don't know that any of them are explicitly named, but I believe we are meant to assume that they are other executive leaders at Evil Corp.

    I had assumed it was Wellick's team of lawyers that Eliot meets at the end of the episode when Wellick summons him to offer him a job.

There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about, the guys that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission. And now I think they’re following me.

This scene at the beginning of the first episode of Mr. Robot, 'eps1.0_hellofriend.mov', is continued at the very end, and the start of the second episode: it is the group of men awaiting the arrival of Elliot Alderson (the man on the far left strangely seems to be missing in the later scenes, though).

We have a clearer picture of them at the start of episode 2, however:

Apart from Tyrell Wellick, not one of them is recognizable as a recurring character - which is logical, considering who they are. They are introduced to Elliot by Wellick:

I'm sorry to bring you in like this: technically what we're doing might be considered illegal, which is why I'm surrounded by eleven of our most annoying lawyers.
