When we last left off in Westworld things were a little bit – up in the air?
We had thoroughly gone through several days of many of the “host” characters.
Dolores: the farmer’s daughter.
Teddy: Dolores’ (former?) lover. He gets killed a lot.
Abernathy: Dolores’ father who is pulled from a storyline after it becomes apparent that the upgrade has caused him to have less than normal host-like reactions.
Dolores is violently raped by one of the park’s visitors (played by Ed Helms) who in search of a different, hidden storyline somewhere within the Westworld Park. We’re not entirely sure what his deal is.
At the end of the previous episode, is comes to light that an update to the software has caused the hosts to act strangely. But now, now we come to realize that the many different ‘storylines’ the hosts have lived are now rising to the surface as actual memories and causing them to gain self-awareness.
