Critic reviews for Trompe L'Oeil
Bravo to director Frederick E.O. Toye and writers Halley Gross & Jonathan Nolan, who handled a reveal some have been expecting for a while in a way that should prove satisfying to everyone.
Holy hell, that William and Dolores storyline was hitting Princess Bride-levels of oxytocin release. What a romantic adventure!!!
Well that escalated... perhaps not exactly quickly, but escalated it certainly has. And one of the big fan theories about this series has been proven true.
Westworld's attempt to pull the rug out from under the audience doesn't only serve a narrative purpose in reconfiguring where characters stand in the grand scheme of things, it echoes on an emotional level by rescinding the decency of a key character.
Jeffrey Wright seemed the most overqualified member of the cast, based on what he'd been given to date, but Bernard's dilemma is now more tragic in many ways than that of the other hosts we've met.
