Westworld S2E04 Explained

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

In Westworld season 2 episode 4 bernard is dragged on his arse by clementine who grabbed him last episode she drags him to a cave that's miles from anywhere which means a Bernards but must hurt and be there's a secret here inside Bernard finds Elsie last season ford programmed

Bernard to capture her because she almost found out ford's plans apparently Elsie's survived on protein bars ever since bernard fries Elsie and she finds out that Bernard is a host and she

Takes the news pretty well that her boss was a robot all along her curiosity as a programmer is greater than her fear so she helps with Bernards brain damage they find a secret Delos lab like the lab in episode 1 where drone hosts

Record guest data but this lab is something more it has James Telos about 30 years ago James died of a disease but his company led by William copied his mind into a robot body a hybrid of human and host

The goal was to make James immortal but this human host is unstable it keeps breaking down so the company keeps burning James and making a new one achieving a longer life each time over 30 years he is born then dies 149 times

Having the same conversation with William over and over the imagery of a spinning record and exercise bike and circular room evoke the loop that James is trapped in he finds out that his wife and kids are dead over and over he's

Burned alive over and over to the tune of the Rolling Stones play with fire he had tried to cheat the devil and live forever but he ended up in hell by the time of season 1 Williams wife Juliet has died and he stopped believing in the

Immortality project saying people aren't meant to live forever so he leaves James to breakdown and then the robot revolution happens so there's no one to terminate James until Bernard and LC find him two weeks later by then James

Is mad and suffering which may be the closest he's been to alive because one of the big ideas last season is that suffering makes hosts conscious and free so maybe in Jim's pain and death he felt alive for the

First time in decades so this is a part of the del los secret project that's been hinted out all series they're trying to make humans immortal by putting their minds in host bodies but how does this connect to the west-world

Guests behavior data recorded in these labs and whose brains are these two clone James he has an observation period and baseline interview they make a record of who James is so that they can copy him with high fidelity Westworld is

Kind of the same thing William says the Parc reveals who guests really are through their choices and sins and Delos has been watching with this baseline data maybe Delos can make human host clones

Of all West world guests and as we see with Jim's script these hybrid hosts are predictable maybe Delos could use this technology to control human behavior this could be glory dolorous –is weapon Williams mistake

The burning of the species logan mentions not human like robots but robot like humans we don't know that details but glory must be something that combines humanity and hosts immortality and control and there's another mystery

Here we find out that sometime around season one Ford sent Bernard to this lab to kill the techs and make another hybrid brain of some human whose mind did they build one possibility is Ford maybe they'll bring him back but Ford's

Death made a point about the end of the humans and rise of the hosts Ford said that he'll live on in his music he exists in the code of his hosts like Lawrence's daughter and young Robert so bringing back forward as a hybrid host

Would undermine the climax of last season maybe the host could be a young William to confront old Bill at the end of his quest he is told to revisit his past or maybe this mind will be Arnold's ford's partner who Bernard is based on

If they want to get tricky it could be that the Bernard we saw in the wake ahead timeline in episode 1 is actually Arnold as a human host hybrid because he's acting super-weird and he has flashbacks of

Arnold with Dolores how could Bernard remember Arnold's life last season Westworld showed us Arnold and made us think it was Bernard so maybe they're pulling the same trick this season so this hybrid mind might be

Arnold's but there is another complication what's the data in Peter Abernathy's head is it a copy of James Dallas's mind or revoir NAL's mind Charlotte said there's 35 years of data in there so maybe it's all the guest

Behavior and DNA data that might explain why Delos needs it so bad William and Lawrence say Chinese railway worker hosts who kill their overseers and use their bodies as railway ties Chinese railway workers in the real American

West suffered dangerous conditions and discrimination so along with colonial India and Confederate slavery West world explores real historical injustice to parallel the treatment of hosts it also looks at violent revenge

Personified by Dolores is it justice to kill your masters or as Maeve suggests does revenge just make you as bad as them bill and Lawrence arrive at Los Morris the home of Lawrence's wife and daughter Lawrence says that his family

Loves him but really he's a son of a bitch so it's kinder for him to avoid his family this is similar to Williams situation he had a wife and daughter but and he's a bad dude and spent time in Westworld instead of with them the town

Is controlled by a Craddock he holds court in a church and brags about his resurrection earlier says he's the chosen one of death this annoys William because he believes that death is final and people shouldn't be brought back and

Then Craddock starts murdering and tormenting the townspeople just like William did when he was here last season so bill is faced with his own past sins and this time he feels some sympathy for the hosts Lawrence's wife reminds him of

The death of his own wife Juliet so the man in black takes on the role of death and kills Craddock and his men in the rain showrunner Lisa joy says this represents washing away Bill's past trying to achieve

Redemption Lawrence's family thanked him for the help but Lawrence's daughter speaking as Ford says one good deed doesn't araise Williams crimes so this season were getting a morally ambiguous William last season he was a villain but

Now he's trying to make things right as Lawrence's daughter says if you're looking for word you're looking in the wrong direction William is facing his past we see grace the woman from the Raj lost episode

She's been captured by ghost nation along with some guests from Season one tourists who get more than they bargained for there's also stops captured last season he says that while Ghost Nation does

Kill hosts they don't kill humans ghost nation takes their prisoners to a catch eater who they call the first of us maybe a cachito was the first ghost nation host created we do see him as an early host in Episode two grace escapes

Then a catcher to threaten Stubbs and says you only live as long as the last person who remembers you which connects to the themes of legacy and immortality with James then the ghost nation hosts disappear

Apparently letting Stubbs leaf and meet up with Delos for the week ahead timeline why would ghost nation capture humans then let them go these hosts programmed or free are they protecting humans or doing something else we still

Don't know in the end grace meets William and reveals that she is his daughter Emily maybe grace is a fake name we know from last season that Emily and William have a difficult relationship she blames Bill

For the suicide of her mother Juliet and bill says his daughter would probably like to see him gunned down so this isn't the happiest reunion but bill and Emily seem to have the same goal to reach glory symbolized by this hexagonal

Pattern that appears in Delos labs now that we know about James's immortality project this symbol almost looks like an infinity sign or an hourglass tipped on its side William and grace might need to work together to reach the mystery at

The center of this season thank you for watching and thanks to the patrons including Melinda Rubin Matthew Athey is right have Gareth foot and hey buds Cheers you
