In Which I Review Westworld (1x7)
--I don't know how to speculate when it comes to this show. I know the internet is rife with theories and ideas about what is going on, but the field on this show is so extensive that it's hard for me to get a proper handle on it. If you've read my reviews for any show, you know I'm far more interested in discussing morality and cosmology.
--However, Westworld was renewed for a second season, so I do need to start looking at the big picture. Hopefully, I can do that in piecemeal over the next few reviews.
--RIP Therese. RIP Clementine. And, to some extent, RIP Bernard! Will he remember that he's a Host after this? Also, what sort of light does this shed on his many behind closed doors interactions with Dolores?
--Maeve has become so self aware that she no longer freezes on command when the men-in-suits come for Clementine.
--The Reveries are responsible for the Hosts retaining some of their more traumatic memories; this falls on Dr. Ford's shoulders but I gotta wonder--who gave him the idea?
--"Surviving is just another loop."
--"The longer I work here the more I think I understand the Hosts. It's the human beings who confuse me."
--Okay, HBO-fanatics; what's sadder: "Hold the door" or "What door?"
