Critic reviews for Dissonance Theory
Alongside the gunshots, exploding cigars and occasional threats to feed people to horses, there were also some serious plot developments, and tantalising hints about the gradually unfurling deeper narrative.
Westworld is in large part a show about people in search of answers, and "Dissonance Theory" found the show's characters taking a multitude of intriguing approaches to finding them.
We get the first hint that maybe the Man in Black isn't the monster that he seems to be.
Maeve still trying to make sense of her blending realities and s***. Her Dolby Surround Sound messing up and she seeing the past or some s***, some memory when a bunch of them got murked out.
After last week's somewhat sluggish installment, "Dissonance Theory" felt to me like a step in the right direction. I love when the show digs into its subtext about storytelling and spirituality.
