But the mastermind personality has taken over, suppressing the real Elliot and creating this utopian world for him to live in inside his own head. That’s the alternate reality we see in part one of the season finale. In his utopian world, his parents didn’t abuse him, Angela is alive (and they’re getting married), and Darlene doesn’t exist.

This is revealed when his therapist (posing as Krista) tells him, “You’re not Elliot, you’re the mastermind and it’s now time for you to give the control over to the host, the real Elliot.”
