    Recap



    * We begin with Dolores recounting how she was taught to see the beauty in her world— but that she was taught a lie. The world has only a little beauty, and her path, through having played many roles, has led her to… someone that we are not shown. The camera shows us Dolores’s body, wrecked from her fight with Maeve. Her Head Control Unit has been removed. Maeve’s body lay lifeless from the EMP, nearby. 

    * We see Caleb getting away — riding a motorcycle on a mountain triad at high speed.

    * William, the man in black was left holding a shotgun on Bernard and Stubbs. He starts firing, shooting Stubbs in the heart. Bernard uses his remote to change “modes,” turning off his personality and then subduing William in an emotionless, robot-first state. 

    * An SF-PD SWAT van pulls up and William runs away. The driver is Lawrence Gonzales, or El Lazo from the first season. Bernard recognises him as the fourth Dolores copy. Lawrence tells Bernard he has been playing the most important role in Dolores’s plan and hands him the case that Musashi, just before he was killed by Clementine and Hanaryo,  told an errand boy to deliver. Lawrence also gives Bernard an address to contact rendezvous w/ Dolores. 

    * Rehoboam’s divergence infographic is displayed and it’s wildly chaotic with divergences from Vancouver all across the world to New York, St. Petersburg, and Malaysia. But it singles out the LA divergence. 

    * The camera moves to Caleb who gets off of his bike at the instruction of Dolores’s digital assistant and navigates to a local distillery where he  finds a package containing Dolores’s original mechanical body and installs their HCU. When she awakens, she answers his questions.

Pretty Good

I've listened to other podcasts for other shows including GOT and Lost. Based on that I feel this is a pretty good show to get insight into WE. They dudes speak well and have informed conversation. I don't always agree with their opinions , which is fine, but I do think they do an excellent job in exploring the specifics of the show as well as overall themes. Good job. I will continue to watch and listen.

Delightful Podcast!

I love this podcast! Westworld is the kind of deep, complex show that most benefits from this sort of breakdown and analysis, and sometimes the viewers just need a little help understanding what the heck is going on! These guys are fans, and they know their stuff. The show covers everything from plot summary, to unanswered questions, to technical details and the big picture. They even offer recommendations on related content that viewers may also enjoy. Overall, it's an entertaining, insightful, and well put together podcast. Whether you're watching the television episodes for the first time, or going back for a re-watch, this is the perfect companion podcast to help you get the most from your viewing experience!

Great insights, different voices

So glad I found this podcast! The hosts bring a lot of knowledge and humor when discussing the show and offer interesting related information. Just wish that Dwayne wouldn’t interrupt the others as much and let them finish their thoughts. Everyone has something great to add here! Subscribed!
