Westworld S2E03 Explained

by birtanpublished on September 3, 2020

Westworld season 2 episode 3 begins in a new park called the raj just like West world is based on the American Wild West and Shogun world on feudal Japan the raj is based on the raj period in india when it was ruled by the british empire so we see hookers and rickshaws and peacocks

And elephants and someone plays a sitar but the song is seven nation army because why let historical accuracy get in the way of her banger the guests Grace and Nicholas hook up but grey suspects that Nick might be a host and

She doesn't want to fuck a robot because robots aren't free they just do as they're told but Nick says doing what you're told can be half the fun he likes being controlled so even this random sex scene raises questions about freedom and

Control which is what this shows all about to make sure Nick is human grace shoots him because the high-tech bullets in West world are coded to only hurt hosts at least they were until Dolores's rebellion when Ford reprograms the guns

To kill humans as well which means that these Raj scenes are a flashback happening sometime in season 1 Grace and Nick go on a tiger hunt but grace is hunting for something else she has a map with this hexagonal pattern which also

Appears around Dallas as secret data project so is Grace Adela's employee helping them secure their data or does she have her own plans the hosts in the Raj go rogue and start killing guests so this bit probably happens around the

Same time that the West world hosts rebel Grace escapes then gets chased by a tiger the same animal they were hunting across the parks the humans have become the hunted the tiger knocks grace off a cliff and they wash up in West

World where Tiger dies and becomes the same Tiger we see in episode 1 then grace meets some hosts of ghost nation who have secrets of their own we jump to the two weeks ahead timeline with Bernard strand security and Charlotte

Marling mentions that someone took out of the cradle according to a West World email the cradle is a simulation technology that stores and tests spark storylines online the cradle appears as a ready you shaped room which looks like

This room in trailer the cradle might connect to Dallas's secret project of recording guests behavior because that behavior data might help with simulating behavior in the cradle and maybe if you could

Perfectly simulate people you could make copies of people as robots like in the future world movie this could explain this shot in an alternate trailer which seems to show old William with James Delos James was sick and dying thirty

Years ago so how is he alive in the present maybe this James is actually a robot clone of the original made with data in the cradle but why would someone take out the cradle maybe for the same reason

Someone flooded this valley where the daughter project seems to be William described this place as his greatest mistake maybe he destroys it Bernard flashes back awake to the present timeline where

He and Charlotte search for Peeta Abernathy because Peter has secret day loss daughter in his head they find Peter with the host rebus who's selling people as slaves to the Confederate OHS we don't know if rebus is programmed to

Do this know if he's choosing to do it because he's just immoral but then Bernard reprograms rebuses personality to make him a virtuous good guy which explains why a week later in Episode one rebus tries to protect another host when

The Confederate OHS arrive rebus fights to protect his former slaves is rebus acting freely here he says he's heeding his convictions but Bernard just changed rebuses convictions this could even if we are free were

Bound to follow our personalities and values in the chaos Charlotte escapes but Bernard and Peter are captured Dolores takes over the Confederate o army promising to help them beat the humans and get to glory which is the

Flooded Valley weapon data place Dolores has Clementine is acting like a murder zombie since she got lobotomized last season Clementine was built to be killed without mercy now she kills without mercy Peter

Arrives and has an emotional reunion with Dolores because he was her host father back at the ranch but Peters brain is scrambled ever since Charlotte and Lee filled it with del estado last season

Charlotte tried to smuggle Peter out of the park on a train which is why he keeps saying I need to get to the train his mind keeps bouncing between old personalities so sometimes he speaks like Dolores his father but sometimes he

Speaks like the professor an old role he played who liked to quote Shakespeare so pate recites lines from King Lear Dolores feels conflicted because she wants to reject her old fake life and wage a war against humans she tells the

Confederate OHS to call her Wyatt the bad guy role but Dolores still loves the men she was programmed to love Peter and Teddy so kind of like Peter Dolores is torn between different identities maybe that means she's a malfunctioning

Machine or maybe being truly conscious and human means juggling different identities and roles while Dolores shows love for Peter she's harsh to Bernard tossing him in jail maybe she's mad that he was her jailer in Westworld for all

Those years but at the same time she recognizes Bernard as the replacement of Arnold Dolores is creator who she saw as a sort of a father so she wants Bernard to approve of her plan to dominate the world but Bernard is not so sure about

Her war Bernard looks at the Dada in Peters head and is shocked though we only see this hexagonal symbol from the Delos Dada project and graces notebook Dolores fights a battle against Delos security

Who decide that their best tactical option is to slowly walk across a field two words the deathbots Dolores blows up the humans but she also betrays and kills that Confederate Oz why does Dolores kill other hosts she

Tells them the same thing that she tells a ghost nation hosts in episode one though we don't all deserve to make it to the valley beyond Dolores judges the Confederate owes unworthy and they do seem like pricks but they were

Programmed that way right we just saw how rebus can be switched from a villain to a hero so can you really judge a machine for following its code maybe Dolores blames the hosts for not awakening to full consciousness like she

Did but it took too Laura's decades of wandering the maze to awake so is it really fair to blame these guys Dolores tells Teddy to execute the Confederated survivors but he disobeys and lets them

Go Teddy is finally thinking for himself but how will Dolores react also during the battle Charlotte takes Peter but we know from the week ahead timeline that she later loses him again and Charlotte

Seems to suspect that Bernard is responsible mave Hector and Lea are on their way to find Maeve's daughter when they encounter some hosts of ghost nation may have recognized as one hosts who attacked her in her past life at the

Homestead the hosts demand that Maeve give them Lea Maeve refuses and tries to use her power to control them but they resist her command so maven code run away why are these hosts immune to Maeve's Jedi Mind Tricks

She's commanded Bernard a sheriff Li's cannibal what makes these ghost nation hosts different and why do they want lis but not Maeve or Hector is it because lis is human they did capture Stubbs last season and now

Apparently grace it looks like ghost nation is collecting humans but why some fans theorize that they're trying to protect humans possibly they're working with Elsie one way or another ghost nation will be a big part of this season

Especially with the character a catch eater who also appears in Maeve's flashback Sizemore gets mad about Maeve and Hector's relationship he wrote these characters and he's upset to see them change off his script like an author who

Doesn't like fan fiction Hector says that his old scripted love was fake but his new love with Maeve is real but then Lee shows that Hector uses scripted dialogue to describe his new love so does this mean that Hector's love isn't

Real or is he just using the words he knows to express something true maybe all of us are limited by our language and culture it's our programming Maeve meets up with Armistice Felix and Sylvester Armistice

Has a new arm because she lost her old one last season the party passes through a snowy area which might suggest the delos can control the weather and they encounter a warrior from Shogun world we don't know if this guy came across too

West world from Shogun world or if Lee's directions are so bad that they accidentally wandered into Shogun world or maybe Lee deliberately misled them however it happened this culture clash may complicate Maeve's quest so this

Episode focuses closely on the central questions of West world like what is freedom and how do our desires and personalities and identities affect that can you morally judge a machine what does love mean to a machine and what

Kind of black mirror blade runner' shenanigans can we achieve with big data and robotics West world is trying to ask some really big questions for more West world analysis check out the subreddit and the podcasts decoding West world
