Elliot is a master hacker and even he couldn’t ignore Joanna’s plea to find her husband. He uncovered a lot of clues in Season 2 Episode 10, and we’re going to unpack them in this post. This article will contain spoilers through Episode 10, so only read on after you’ve watched the episode.
Here’s what you need to know.
With Elliot’s master sleuthing skills, he found the coordinates for the phone that’s been calling Joanna. She’s convinced the calls are coming from Tyrell, even though no one ever speaks on the other end of the line. But she’s also getting gifts that seem to confirm her suspicions. Elliot doesn’t believe it though. So where did those coordinates for the phone that’s been calling Joanna lead to?
The address listed on Elliot’s computer was 92 E. 82nd St., New York, NYC, 10028. (The exact coordinates are 40.777609, -73.959366.) If you look that up on Google Maps, it will take you to Smart PC Repair. One theory is that this is Dark Army’s front PC repair store in New York City, where WhiteRose met Elliot. But wouldn’t Elliot have recognized that address?
Mr. Robot told Elliot that “they” shot and killed Tyrell. So Elliot’s convinced it can’t be Tyrell who’s calling Joanna. And Joanna’s bodyguard seemed to confirm it when he told Elliot that there was no way Tyrell would be at the address where the phone’s signal is originating.
So what could that cryptic statement mean? A top fan theory is that the coordinates belong to Scott Knowles, the CTO of E Corp who got the job Tyrell wanted. He’s also the man whose wife Tyrell killed. It’s possible that Scott is getting back at Tyrell by harassing his wife. Or, if Tyrell isn’t dead, he might be holding Tyrell hostage.
But why would Mr. Robot have lied to Elliot about Tyrell’s death? Mr. Robot’s primary motivation isn’t honesty, but protecting Elliot. We saw this when he took the pain of being beat up for Elliot on multiple occasions. So it’s possible that they didn’t really kill Tyrell, but did something much worse when Elliot was unconscious. Something that he’s trying to protect Elliot from figuring out.
