If you've watched USA Network's "Mr. Robot," you know the show can get a little confusing at times. With so many plot twists and storylines, it can be hard to keep up. Even the cast thinks so. 

During a discussion at Vulture Fest in New York City on Saturday, the cast of the Golden Globe-winning show revealed that they, too, don't know what's going on most of the time. 

"Its so crazy -- you're like, 'Oh, yeah, I know what's going to happen,' and then you get your script and you're like, 'What?! I never heard that,'" said Carly Chaikin, who plays Darlene on the hit show. "But [director Sam Esmail] has such an amazing vision of who we are, that when he would talk to me about it, it would just make me so excited."

Portia Doubleday, who plays the main character Elliot's childhood friend Angela, even admitted, "Sometimes I have to Wikipedia our own show to figure out [what's going on]."

"This season, there are a couple things where I'm like, 'Wait, when did that happen?' I actually had to research it and figure it out as opposed to [knowing] what episode was that in," she said.

Chaikin added that she and her cast mates had arguments about scripts with Esmail, but they always eventually realized the director knew what he was doing. 

"It's nice to be in the hands of somebody we absolutely trust," Christian Slater, who plays the eponymous Mr. Robot, said. "He does get it and there is a reason for each and every thing we end up doing and saying. He's thought it all the way through."

In fact, they trust Esmail so much, Chaikin joked, "If [he] started a cult, we probably would just follow. We'd be like, 'Well, if you think it's good, then, you're right.'" 

"Mr. Robot" Season 2 premieres July 13 at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
