21 Times "Mr. Robot" Made You Want To Hug Elliot Alderson

But couldn't because of the whole "no touching" thing.

Posted on

Elliot Alderson (played flawlessly by Rami Malek) is an incredible character.

He's introverted, intelligent, and endearingly socially anxious.

But he's also incredibly sensitive, compassionate, and seemingly always in need of a hug.

And if you consider yourself highly sensitive or overly empathetic, Elliot Alderson will gut and destroy and ravage your emotions.

1. Like any time he wears his hood.

2. Or is in therapy.

3. When he's being paranoid.

4. Worried.

5. Sarcastic AF.

6. Brutally honest.

7. Or lovably awkward.

8. When he gets you.

9. When he hugs people even when he has a fairly strict "no touching" policy.

10. Every time he says "This can't be happening."

11. And questions reality.

12. His perfect relationship with a goddamn dog.

13. And his imperfect relationship with people not named "Shayla."

14. WHICH INCLUDES THIS MOMENT.

16. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOMENT.

Sam Esmail, you have played my emotions like a goddamn fiddle maestro and I hate and love you for it.

18. When he didn't know.

19. And when he just wanted to know...

20. When he tries to hide his pain...

21. And definitely when he can't.

So here's one big virtual, collective hug from all of us, Elliot — no touching necessary.
