    I HATED the last scene. Saying that the rest was great: A+

    The second season ended with Dolores leaving the park and entering the society, as an audience we were left to wonder what would she do now with her freedom. Apparently, the world was just like the park and she had an agenda of overtaking it. This season also ends with robots gaining freedom and we are continued to wonder what would they do now with their free will. Basically, whatever the audience were left to anticipate after the second season is happening now. I really did not enjoy this season and not excited for the new season at all. Also, some say this show is still “prestigious” but unlike the first season majority of the scenes this season were just fighting scenes as if they were taken from an action movie.

    What’s really frustrating about this show is how smart it thinks its themes and plotting is and then it has dialogue like “hang in there Stubbs, I need to go see Dolores” and “are you the final confrontation?”

    I though the maeve Dolores scene just before Dolores’ death was very touching and really felt like the end of the Evan Rachel wood’ Dolores. I’m curious to see if she comes back and in what state. Hale now seems to have taken over The original Dolores idea of building a robot army to destroy humanity. The season overall felt a bit wasted. Evan Rachel wood was certainly the MVP of the season . I thought the rest was just good even Newton but that’s of course because of the material. What was strange though is that they decided to kill of William, a character we have been with for 3 seasons, in a post credits scene. Why not do that whole scene with the reveal of the robot army as the final scene before the credits and then the Bernard reveal as end credits scene.

    Was more of fan of this season overall and this episode than the forums at large. While flawed, I enjoyed the shift to the cyberpunk thriller genre and the addition of Caleb as a new protagonist. I particularly liked what he brought out in Dolores and in ERW’s performance. The scene between Dolores and Maeve was my favorite of the season.

    Terrible writing and almost non-existing plot full of stupidity and holes. Wood’s Dolores was a wasted character, to end her was a good decision, but her plan with Caleb was the most ridiculous one ever, the writers understood that and they put it in the script as jokes towards her…

    They put Clifton Collins Jr. as Dolores number 5, because they just forgot about it, he had no purpose.

    The mess with William is even worst and now his post-credit scene from season 2 does not make any sense.

    The visuals, the costumes and the fighting scenes were excellent, but if someone still believes that this is a prestigious show, has been brainwashed by Jonathan Nolan trowing mythological Greek references and shallow mysterious responses for no reason in every dialogue.

    Caleb is the worst character in this whole TV season, he became the new Bernard, constantly confused and wondering about himself and his own meaning… But wait, Bernard remains like this as well… Wait… William has the same conflict also… Maeve… oops, not, she is still living for a reunion with her daughter… Please, kill me now.

    The worst thing is that the message of the season and of the show remains the same and is offensively repetitive – do we have choice and real humanity? This has been explored much better in other shows that are not seen as prestigious because unlike this one they do not try to be something that they are not.

    That didn’t really feel like a Westworld finale, which makes sense for a subpar season. I was a fan of both previous seasons, but this one was a fluke.

    Hale and William were favorites of mine and losing both of them sucks. Are there any humans from season one still alive? Or it’s all hosts now? That’s a good metaphor for the state of the show and the direction it’s headed.

    Park five being used by the military is something I would wanna see as a larger arc, but it was just a mention. I do miss the park.

    I’m glad this was the best episode of the season, because this season has been uninspired. The action was fantastic and the set pieces were amazing especially Maeve vs Dolores round 2. The directing was stellar and all the creative aspects like production design to cinematography to the music by Ramin Djawdi is always flawless. Evan Rachel Wood was phenomenal in this finale I hope she gets a nomination and I’m so happy they gave Thandie Newton some worthy material which she chewed up and spit out as if saying I’ve been waiting for this material all season and I would give her another win after watching this episode along with Wood for the win. I also agree that it was beautifully poetic having these two opposing forces of Maeve and Dolores come together in Dolores final scene (but is it really her final scene?). I’m excited for season 4 so let’s hope theres nowhere to go but up after falling down for a while now. The finale showed promise of the new season so let’s hope they keep that up for the next one round.

    Yeah, this season was just constantly oscillating from great to terrible and now that it’s all said and done it was my least favorite but I liked a lot of parts. The first four episodes went well, and I love Dolores’ overall arc and ERW, but the lack of proper characterization and a strong narrative foundation for everyone else just made the back half of the season collapse. I waited week after week for Ed Harris’ “I’m going to save the fucking world” and then he disappeared until like the post credits and just died. Thandie Newton and Aaron Paul were good in the episode though, and Jeffrey Wright got that one scene that was incredibly acted.

    Still can’t help being so curious as to what they’ll come up with next season.

    With all these people saying William died, I said in the previous thread, I’m not so sure that he’s actually dead. Normally someone’s throat getting cut would be sufficient evidence to say that they died, but back in season 1, Maeve cut Sylvester’s throat but used some kind of medical equipment to close the wound before he bled out. I find it very suspicious that we saw William get his throat cut, but cut away before showing him bleed out and definitively die. As sloppy as I’ve found a lot of this season’s writing to be, I don’t think they’d waste time developing William and have him decide to save the world only to have his very next scene be his last and replace him with another Ed Harris. It made sense to replace Charlotte with a host since she was a secondary role with no character development, but we’ve spent three seasons trying to learn about and understand William. I think the idea that they’d just get rid of him is very questionable.

    Anyway, on the topic of William, we’re definitely never getting closure over that post credits scene last season.

    The season finale was okay for me. Even though the third season wasn’t top-tier for me, I was still entertained and I’m still interested to invest on that world. I’m looking forward on Nolan and Joy’s plan for fourth season and I still trust that they know what they’re doing until the end.

    Dolores at the end of S2: *aggressively* “I want their world!!”
    Dolores suddenly at the end of S3: *I’m the Messiah* “I want a peaceful world for both humans and robots to co-exist and the worst character on television this past year to achieve that taking over from me, now I’ll rest.”
    Lmao, this show is done.

    It’s called character development. The only humans she’d met at that point were these awful people who’d abuse her and the others for years. She assumes all humans are the same.

    Yet in season 3, she comes to realise that most humans are just as restricted abd controlled as they were. They don’t have the ability to choose their own destiny. And she finds common ground with them. And it’s the people in control who are the issue, not humans in general.

    I think the season had some issues but I don’t think that was one of them.

    It makes total sense that she would distrust humanity given what she’s been through but it was painfully obvious this season that she was changing after you see her connecting with Caleb and realizing humans are subjugated and under constant control just like the hosts.

    She basically says several times she wants a revolution that will liberate both the hosts and humans. They really dumbed it down for everyone.
