    Westworld | Season 3 Finale Recap: “Crisis Theory”

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) are up against a new world — and in the new world, they can be whoever the bleep they want.

    It’s an official wrap on season three of HBO’s Westworld, with all of the various Doloreses coming to a crashing head in the finale, “Crisis Theory.” In their recap of the episode, Josh and Jo weigh in on some of the divided takes within the fandom on how the finale landed, while also forging ahead into talking about how the various twists and turns will impact the series moving forward.

    Pending enough feedback from listeners, Josh and Jo will be back next week to talk more about the finale — but again, only if they get enough feedback to warrant it!

    Westworld | Season 3, Episode 7 Recap: “Passed Pawn”

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) aim a rocket launcher at season three, episode seven of “Westworld,” called “Passed Pawn.”

    In “Passed Pawn,” Caleb Nichols’ (Aaron Paul) true purpose stands revealed, as he learns a lot more about himself than he bargained for. Meanwhile, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) puts the pieces in play for her endgame plans against humanity, with very little in the way to stop her — very little, of course, save for Maeve (Thandie Newton). Plus, William (Ed Harris) has an epiphany, and it’s bad news for Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth).

    Josh and Jo will be back next week to talk about the season three finale. Check out THR.com/Westworld for all of Josh’s Hollywood Reporter coverage of the series, including interviews with creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, star Thandie Newton, and more.

    Westworld | Season 3, Episode 6 Recap: “Decoherence”

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) aim a rocket launcher at season three, episode six of Westworld, called “Decoherence.”

    In “Decoherence,” the action primarily follows three different characters: Maeve (Thandie Newton) as she returns to War World to recruit some new allies, Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) as she tries to maintain her cover at Delos and save her family from certain doom, and William (Ed Harris) as he goes through a therapeutic battle against himself — many different versions of himself, in fact.

    Josh and Jo will be back next week to talk season three, episode seven, “Passed Pawn.” Check out THR.com/Westworld for all of Josh’s Hollywood Reporter coverage of the series, including interviews with creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, star Thandie Newton, and more.

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) take a trip through season three, episode five of HBO’s “Westworld,” called “Genre.”



    In “Genre,” Aaron Paul’s Caleb experiences life through the lens of the titular drug, meant to make him see the world through different film genres. How does that work? Josh and Jo weigh in. Plus, they talk about the aftermath of Dolores’ plan, what it may mean as season three barrels into its endgame, and whether or not the full series’ endgame may be closer than we know.

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) are awash in a sea of Doloreses in their recap of “Westworld” season three, episode four, “The Mother of Exile



    In “The Mother of Exiles,” the mystery surrounding Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) clarifies, but with the answer comes a slew of new questions — especially as pertains to Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and the other hosts she’s brought into the new world. Josh and Jo spend most of the podcast reeling from the big Dolores revelation, while also taking time to offer some wild new theories about Bernard (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Maeve (Thandie Newton) and others.

    Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) try to uncover the identity of a new host in their discussion of “Westworld” season three, episode three, “Absence of Field.”

    In “Absence of Field,” Tessa Thompson steps into focus as both Charlotte Hale and a new robot posing as the late Delos board member. Who is she? The question is still out there, but Josh and Jo spend most of the podcast chewing on some theoretical possibilities. Plus, Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores and Aaron Paul’s Caleb finally meet each other, with deadly results.

KathrynGoTFan ,

Great recap!

Josh and Jo are such a fun duo, I love their deep dives. Josh is also one of the few pop culture reporters who I really trust to not spoil me or “theorize” while reading spoilers.

Go to Westworld Recap

This show is so complicated and I love to listen to people helping me understanding. Great podcast and one heck of a ride. You need to be listening to this one!

Lauraantone ,

funny & accessible pod

a lovely, casual recap and speculation show, with friendly and charming hosts that make you feel like you’re chatting with the ol’ pals. Jo being unafraid of wild speculation when everyone else seems burdened with only guessing /correctly/ is much appreciated, and Josh brings a lot of warmth to every ep.
