"Reunion" moves Westworld forward with a fascinating look back, shedding light on the park's mysterious origins to answer some important questions and raises a few new ones.
Without a doubt, Dolores and Maeve are Westworld's two most interesting and high-quality characters. What is most compelling about them is the different ideologies they represent, as we've touched upon before.
Something that got said a lot during the lead-up to Season 2 was that the women of the show would truly come to own their power. Two episodes in, and it's a promise kept.
Season 1's battle between Ford and Delos over who really controlled the park just pitted one kind of creep versus another. Yet tonight's refreshingly informational episode widened the show's scope, and with it, the reasons to become obsessed.
Where the season premiere suffered from having a lack of clear through-line, providing us with multiple stories but little to tie them together... this second episode starts doubling down on what will presumably be the major arc for the season...
Westworld ain't playin' this year, yo.
If Westworld couldn't get Anthony Hopkins to return, this is one fun way to still involve Ford in the game.
There are so many storylines to service, and now timelines via multiple characters, it's becoming increasingly challenging to actually invest.
As if we weren't already racking our minds about what, exactly, Delos was secretly doing behind the scenes, Westworld threw out a fresh brain-burner to torment us.
For tonight's performance, El Lazo will be played by the incredible Giancarlo Esposito in what seems to be a very short-lived appearance.
That's right. GUS FRING WAS ON WESTWORLD.
It's an engrossing hour of television that is once again designed to mess with our heads and spur a new raft of theories and questions, as the door creaks open just a little wider.
Ford has surprises for him planted like little bombs all over the park and finding them may not be fun for Bill, but it's fun for the rest of us.
