"Dissonance Theory" spends some welcome time with the Man In Black while continuing the methodical expansion of the Westworld universe.
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.
The trick is that Westworld recognizes the implications of its choices and makes sure we don't understand enough to tune out the trauma.
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.
This episode was a worthy follow-up to last week's satisfying storytelling.
Things are starting to feel more certain within the universe of Westworld.
The Man in Black returned to Westworld in a significant way this week, infusing the narrative with even more tantalizing clues about his backstory - and how he's been connected to the park all these years.
This episode leaned heavily into the video game aspect of Westworld in a big, fun way.
