Mr. Robot: Who Is Whiterose?

Is she friend or foe?

Tim Surette

Mr. Robot is chock full of secrets. Heck, at any given point we don't even know what's real and what isn't. But one of the more compelling mysteries introduced late in Season 1 was the character of Whiterose (B.D. Wong), the transgender leader of the Chinese hacker collective known as the Dark Army.

We first met Whiterose when Elliot (Rami Malek) attempted to find out why the Dark Army didn't live up to its end of the Evil Corp hack, and she was not having any of Elliot's guff.

Whiterose's second appearance came in the season finale's final scene, when we saw her dressed as a businessman and palling around with Evil Corp CEO Phillip Price (Michael Cristofer). But that's it... we don't have much to go on in figuring out who this person is.

Is Whiterose a friend or foe to Elliot? What are her motivations? How much power does she actually wield? And what role will she play in Season 2? Watch us take some guesses in the video above.

Season 2 of Mr. Robot premieres Wednesday, July 13 at 10/9c on USA Network.
