Westworld subtly reveals more of its multitudinous plot layers and adds some substantial twists in the vexing fifth installment, "Contrapasso."
It was like, if there was a Westworld for Game of Thrones fans, this would be it. And you're a monster for wanting that to be a real thing (is what Westworld is saying here).
Evan Rachel Wood really blew us away this week, with an episode that demanded incredible range and commitment.
The play-within-a-play conceit of Westworld is meant to implicate us - to reveal not only how the stories we tell as a culture reflect our beliefs, but how they affect the people we tell them about in unexpectedly real ways.
It seems like every character in this week's episode of Westworld -- "Contrapasso" -- is trying to get as far as possible from where they started. But the show's biggest problems remain way closer to home.
There is still plenty of room for weird stuff, particularly when it comes to Dolores, her reveries, her search for meaning, and whether she maintains a connection to the enigmatic Arnold, the park's late co-founder.
The plot became ever thicker, and twistier, in the fifth instalment of HBO's newest big hitting drama.
There's no doubt the show's creators are very smart; smart enough to craft very big pictures. But big pictures need small details too.
Tonight, [Dolores] finally got a lot of agency...
We get to the moment that we've all been waiting for. The MiB has arrived at a bar with Teddy when he is joined by Ford.
Westworld Season 1 Episode 5 was also a lesson in subtleties. Nothing came out and smacked you in the face with its meaning.
Like the Hosts that are slowly waking up to the truth about their existences, Westworld is equally self-aware.
Dolores and William's newfound independence takes root at the same time that some of the series' Big Questions come into slightly clearer focus - a welcome development as we reach the season's halfway point.
