The last "Mr. Robot" episode shocked its audiences.

Also, it at least shed light on one of the questions that haunt fans. Is everything just a pigment of Elliot's imagination?

In last week's episode titled "eps1.7_wh1ter0se.m4v," Elliot (Rami Malek) realized that one missing huge part of his life has been with him all along.

He tried to kiss Darlene, his friend from FSociety only to realize that she is his sister. Some (so far) characters in the world of Elliot are real, the only problem is that he does not get them right.

So Elliot's sister is true. But what about Mr. Robot? Christian Slater's character is the leader of Fsociety. He recruited Elliot into the group and with the young hacker's fascination in hacking and justice, some think Mr. Robot is not real?

"Mr. Robot" cast Rami Malek said Elliot will come to realize what is real and not soon.

"I think it's easy to question . . . you're talking about a guy who, from the beginning of the series, explains that he's creating an imaginary person in his head and everyone watching is a part of that. I think the more we get to know Elliot the more you'll realize what exactly his reality is and I think he'll also come to realize what his reality is. And as vague as that sounds, I think these questions are going to keep coming up well beyond this first season," Malek said in an interview with Vanity Fair.

The "Mr. Robot" cast also acknowledged that some of the things Elliot told his audience may not be true but he promises that people's reception of the show won't go to waste.

"VF: But there are things like all the characters referring to "E Corp" as "Evil Corp," which is Elliot's invention. So the reality of the entire show is all filtered through your character's perception.

RM: That's true. But I don't want people to think, What if the whole thing is just in his imagination? I know we do take some creative liberties but I promise that this is not all for naught."

There are only two "Mr. Robot" episodes left to air on Aug. 19 and 26. "Mr. Robot" cast also includes Martin Wallström as Tyrell Wellick, Portia Doubleday as Angela Moss, and Michel Gill as Gideon Goddard.
