How many people are in Bernard's head?
4 June 2018 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

As if Two were not enough.

Forget about anyone following any story now, this is the end game.

BernArnold was in the center of the "Cradle", which we have heard tell that The Cradle is where the Host Backups... Uh, were.

Very interesting place, that. But you can only go into The Cradle in the form of a Control Unit. What and who and why BernArnold finds there is beyond the Pale.

Maeve also did not have things work out exactly as she wanted, but I think she reached an agreement of sorts with Delores: Who once again tried to foist what she wanted onto someone else, this time, Maeve. Maeve and Delores both have the ability to kind of nudge people/hosts into the directions they want. But where Maeve offers a choice, Delores offers coercion. Even when she herself had been given a choice, by Ford.

And William still thinks every host he runs into is Ford. William will probably not be meeting Ford any longer, unless he runs into one specific host. And this causes him some problems, especially with Hosts suddenly remembering what he used to do to them. Especially Lawrence. William is now just a loose end. But the story no longer requires Ford's direct involvement, it's going to play out for William on pure, Brownian Motion.

Hidden in this explosion and gunfight strewn episode, is the explanation of how Arnold was brought back. We saw previously, that any resurrectees eventually go mad.

Why hasn't Bernard gone Mad, if he's really Arnold?

Well, the reason for that is told in the middle of this violent delight. And it completes the explanation of the connection of Arnold to Delores to Barnard- To Ford. Yes, Ford is still part of this story, but how? It's something he told to Theresa: Ford designed every inch of the Park, and he's not going to let Delos or anyone else take any part of it.

But the Football was in Abernathy's head, and that's a fumble. Too bad for Hale, but I really don't want her to get her greasy paws on it anyway. It's like I mentioned previously, you have to choose who you are rooting for. Never liked Hale, but I don't like other people even more. Especially Strand. And there is still a chunk of time missing... But it is catching up rapidly.

Somebody else suggested that "Human lives don't matter in Westworld", but I guess that makes it OK what humans did to hosts in the first season? The only real humanitarian lesson here is that we teach ourselves that "all lives matter", and then truly act on that when it comes down to everybody and I mean everybody. But that's not a story that's being told in Westworld, what's being told in Westworld is Ford's story, "journey into night". And we just got handed be end game, so I intend to sit back and enjoy it.
