"Decoherence" finds the characters in unexpectedly places, positioning Westworld's third season for its final battle.
After sitting through another meaningless cavalcade of guest stars this week, it's hard to get too excited for one more reveal next Sunday.
The unfortunate thing about "Decoherence" is that... it's mired in table-setting. However, this is understandable, given that after this, there are only two more episodes left in the season, and that table needs to be set.
It still managed to work at the start of this season, as it leaned on momentum and our familiarity with certain tropes to carry itself forward. Now that it's reached the point before the point where something actually happens, the momentum falls apart.
Maeve schemes and William undergoes some much-needed therapy as we build towards a thrilling finale.
Decoherence is a welcome return to the Bond-esque pace that the programme has been keeping up ever since its soft-reboot at the start of the year. Tonight, we had shock returns, surprise revelations and the mother of all cliffhangers.
Some superb action redeems an episode otherwise marked by familiar Westworld digressions.
However, I did like this episode more than last week's. Maybe because, as I noted above, it deals less with magic and more with the personal.
Though it's still not as great and exciting as the first four episodes of the season, 'Decoherence', in the end, manages to get the job done while still sustaining the show's philosophical exploration of identity and the nature of free will.
Suzanne Wrubel and Lisa Joy have written an episode of 'Westworld' full of action and, generally speaking, more solid than the previous one. [Full Review in Spanish]
It's still a fantastic season so far, where the main thread is working and really hitting; but it's in these supporting characters where their longer absences are felt when it's time to deliver on their stories.
Westworld season 3 heads into its endgame with "Decoherence," an installment that that reshuffles many of the pieces of the story as we understand them.
"Decoherence" is mostly a transitional episode into the final act of Season Three, leaving us with two clear sides going into the last two episodes.
