Quotes

Man in Black: No one else sees it, this thing in me. Even I didn't see it at first. And then one day, it was there - a stain I never noticed before; a tiny flicker of darkness, invisible to everyone. And I could see nothing else, until finally I understood that the darkness wasn't something marred from something I've done; some incredible decision I've made - I was shedding my skin. The darkness was what was underneath.It was mine all along, and I decided how much of it I let into the world. I tried to do ...

"Don't let Them"
18 June 2018 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

Why didn't Maeve leave on the train when she had the chance?

Instead of being free in the real world she is now strapped down to a table in Westworld while they literally cut chunks out of her in more ways than just physical.

We are now catching up to some of the events that we saw in episode one of this very disturbing second season of what can only be now called "Game of Westworld."

We have seen that the valley beyond had been turned into the ocean beyond, and we didn't know why. Now we just see a little bit more, a little bit farther. Some of the events in this episode make me question the timeline between S2E1 and here. Either there is something goofy with the order of events (that we can figure out, that is), or there are more hosts and people that we don't know are hosts then we have ever imagined. In any event season two has been presented more like the way a host would perceive it's own memories, we saw some of this type of storytelling in season one, but it is much more prevalent here. So we have to ask "when exactly is this happening"?

It all comes back to the machinations of the "man in black", William. Who was one person out in the real world, but he was William in Westworld.

This episode focuses mostly on his personal story, but we also have Bernard and Maeve, and of course Ford.

What about Dolores? But she is also connected to William, and to Maeve, and to Arnold.

And then there is Hale:

Don't let them do it, Maeve.

Look for some excellent character actors in this episode including Sela Ward as Mrs Man in Black. And pay attention to some of the guests at William's party.
