    I assumed people would love the episode because people (especially on this site) tend to love gimmicky one off episodes.

    Exactly what I thinked. I not even watch the episode yet, but I tghouht everyone would eat up this episode when I readed comparisons with The Leftovers. And I loved the comment in one review that said Westworld should go full The Leftovers in season 3, with more indivual focused episodes.

    It was well done regardless of whether it was a gimmick or not though.

    I admit that everything felt somewhat boring during the episode, but when everything comes into place at the end of the episode, it gives you a different perception. Gotta rewatch it soon. And as a Dolores non-fan, I was happy with the little twist.

    Westworld Season 1 was a well-paced and emotionally effective masterpiece while Season 2 is a clear example of a sophomore slump. They should have just had The Bicameral Mind be the Series finale and made the show a limited series. Now, the inconsistent and sloppily written quality of the 2nd Season I fear will end up tainting the shows reputation and legacy as a whole.

    I disagree entirely. I think this season is a huge step from Season 1, which was primarily plot based with weak characters. This season more characters, in particular the Man in Black and Lee Sizemore, have been able to come into their own instead of just playing archetypes. There have been major twists and turns but that doesn’t drive the entire narrative like the first season seemed to be. The episodes have managed to work on the own while also building to an explosive conclusion in these last two episodes.

    I thought that it might end up more like the Deja episode of This is Us.

    Season 1 every twist and turn made sense and the emotional core made it all work. Dolores, William, Maeve, Bernard, everyone had their narrative arc perfectly paced and executed. Now, the show is struggling for a reason to exist in regards to narrative and character value and it feels like much ado about nothing as the writers make up convoluted and elaborate shit as they go along in order to give audiences the illusion of emotional and intellectual substance.

    IMo, season 1 was far away to be well-paced or even a masterpiece of any kind. In fact, episode 2-5 were problematic and in some
    moments, boring. It was a great season with awesome episodes, but there was flaws here and there. Season 2 had some problems, but I don’t know, it seems a better show. Season 3 need to be even more about the characthers than the mistery. With the right direction, Westworld have potential to become a sci-fi Leftovers (not with the same quality, but with the intetion, people facing the world chaos).

    I didn’t sense any emotion, more like straightforward smart analysis. Don’t know how that was your reaction to such a thoughtful post.

    Exactly, aside from the premiere and the last three episodes, the rest of the episodes were basically filler. And the Man in Black himself had nothing to do in season 1, as opposed to young William who had the best arc of the season. I believe the writers have more of a plan for how this season fits into the long game of the series, which is clear to me because of the future scenes they keep showing.

    The words masterpiece and Westworld do not belong in the same sentence.

    The music of Westworld is a masterpiece. That I can say with confidence.

    My main problem with this show is that they try so badly to be complicated and mysterious that I get lost in the process. Sure, thise entire mythology they have constructed is brilliant and you have to be very talented to come up with something like that. However, as a viewer I struggle following all these timelines. And I watch a lot of TV with complicated storylines. I wish they would tone that down a bit. Show us what’a outside of the park. How is the world out there? I need more of that and less of these complicated 1000 timelines. I very much appreciate this show and how ambitious it is nevertheless. And visually it’s a masterpiece.

    I think people are misusing the word timeline in regards to this show. This is all the same timeline. There’s no alternate realities with this show.
