While the horror elements pack a jolt and the "conversations" between robots remain enthralling, everything else is shooting blanks.

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 continues its puzzle box way of thinking by giving the audience plenty to chew on, as the incremental revelations seem only to push the viewer deeper down the rabbit hole.

Westworld is almost mathematical in its narrative precision. The pace is not fast, and that frustrates some viewers. Yet the story is always moving -- unceasing, purposeful, and incremental.

The Man in Black's quest is arguably the most straightforward storyline on the show right now, even as its ends remain uncertain -- of all the characters, he has the clearest goal, which helps when nearly everyone else is lost in the weeds.
