Westworld has managed to take their 3rd season and change the direction of the series. Whether it’s for the better is indeed a matter of perspective. Anyone who started the series expecting some sort of linear storyline likely isn’t pleased but probably wasn’t paying attention during season one. Westworld was never meant to be a simplistic series or run of the mill. Not much in Science Fiction is. What makes this third season genuinely stand out is how they’ve seamlessly tied in the show’s past with this new direction. It does leave fans of the show with tons of questions. For starters, is this even reality or just another simulation? With that in mind, let’s take a look at our 5 takeaways from last night’s episode.
Could these hosts have evolved to a point where emotions will cloud their programing? At first, it seemed farfetched that Charlotte (who is a copy of Delores) would betray Delores, but now I’m not so sure. She knew what the mission was yet still wanted to “her” family out of harm’s way leading to the eventual bombing of her car. Could Delores betray herself? Westworld indeed loves a big twist!
4. Tessa Thompson!
If we are going to accept that Charlize Theron is a badass in Atomic Blonde, then we should also realize that Tessa Thompson is as well. I’d love to see Thompson play the villain in Atomic Blonde 2 for purely selfish reasons.
3. R.I.P. Hector?
It would seem our beloved Hector has met his demise, but is anyone ever really gone in Westworld.
2. The Man in Black meets himself.
