After binge watching the show for 5th time, I noticed something strange. The season finale, during the post credit scene where Whiterose is seen talking to the CEO of Evil Corp. in the mansion where a bunch other wealthy people ( or as Elliot would call them - "The top 1% of the top 1%. The guys that play God without permission." ;) ) are seen socialising, one would assume that Whiterose is working with Evil Corp. all along, right?
Well, maybe... Could it possible that Whiterose could be like a triple agent who is actually on Elliot's side? There was this particular line in that post credit scene that got me suspicious.
Whiterose: "Oh, your troubles are weighing heavily on you. I'm not entirely sure why. I was told that you know the person responsible."
Phillip Price: "Yes, yes. Of course we do. And we'll handle that person as we usually do."
There isn't a doubt that they were talking about Elliot. But this is why I think it's strange. Whiterose knows Elliot ( from the meeting in episode 8 ), but instead of saying Elliot's name to Philip Price he says -" I was told that you know the person responsible."
So basically, he saying that he (at least to some degree) didn't know who initiated the hack. Which means that he's lying. So could it be possible that he is actually working with Elliot as his inside man? I agree that it sounds kinda far fetched, but when you really think about it makes sense.
In episode 8, at the end of meeting with Whiterose, Elliot says - "Why are you working with us?" Whiterose doesn't respond, instead she just smiles. Which could indicate that Whiterose is working with the Evil Corp. or she made some kind of deal with Elliot and he could have forgotten about it. It's seems possible as during this time Elliot completely forgets about his past.
Whiterose isn't going to be some kinda of secondary antagonist in show. With less than 20 minutes of screen time throughout the entire season, he/she is still managed to be an interesting character. I think that Whiterose is going to play a pivotal role in the coming season(s).
Anyways, what do you guys think?
