And whereas there are some new mysteries afoot, we’re kinda not feeling that very same sense of surprise we have been feeling again originally of season one.
With out the query of who’s a bunch and who’s not and what is the take care of the Man in Black, and with the data that the hosts are taking up, it is somewhat tougher to care…to date. We’ll need to see how issues go after tonight.
The premiere picked up simply after final season left off, with the board bloodbath. In fact we first needed to get by way of some dream nonsense from Bernard and Dolores, however then we noticed the clear up efforts. Particularly, all of the hosts have been getting executed. Cool.

That is the place Bernard discovered that the park has been creepily gathering DNA from all of the company, which weirdly did not creep us out as a lot because it ought to. Every part on this present is so tousled that DNA assortment simply appears par for the course.

Bernard says he would not bear in mind what occurred on the bloodbath, however once they arrive at a big lake wherein a ton of useless hosts—together with Teddy—are floating, he claims he killed all of them.
In the meantime, post-massacre Dolores has gone full Kissin’ Kate Barlow. She’s able to kill anybody and everybody in her manner, even whereas Teddy feels a bit uneasy about the entire thing. And equally, Maeve’s additionally able to kill, however she’s sporting a slick human costume and never driving a horse to do it. She’s additionally acquired a machine gun, which is cool, and has one of many people as a type of hostage to assist her navigate the parks in quest of her daughter.
After which there’s the Man in Black, who would possibly as properly not matter in any respect. We’d not have missed him if he hadn’t returned, to be sincere, however possibly he’ll discover one thing attention-grabbing to do within the upcoming episodes.
So right here we’re, intrigued by what the heck is occurring and goes to occur to Bernard, and the way that Park Six tiger ended up by the lake, and what lies past this island Westworld apparently inhabits.
Now please faux we’re ending this put up with some appropriate gibberish concerning the nature of actuality. Thanks.
