SPOILER ALERT: Don’t learn if in case you have not but watched the second episode of “Westworld” Season 3.
After a Dolores (Evan Rachel Wooden) and Caleb (Aaron Paul)-centered premiere, Episode 2 of “Westworld” Season Three introduced the present again to the park and to everybody’s favourite brothel madam-turned-ruthless killer, Maeve (Thandie Newton).
Newton was reunited with Rodrigo Santoro in Warworld, a brand new surroundings set in Italy throughout World Struggle II. After some irritating again and forths with Santoro’s clueless character, Maeve met up with Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman), who was someway nonetheless alive after sacrificing himself close to the top of final season, and looked for a manner out of the park.
Nonetheless, after some time it grew to become obvious that this wasn’t the Lee S-S-S-Sizemore she as soon as knew. It turned out that Maeve was not in truth in the true park, however was trapped in a simulation.
In the meantime, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) discovered an previous buddy — Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), within the host scrap room. Final season ended with heavy hints that Stubbs was a number all alongside, and guess what? He’s!
However though the episode delivered solutions, it nonetheless left numerous questions. Right here, Selection breaks down 5 of these most burning ones.
So Bernard and Stubbs at the moment are a buddy cop pairing?
Bernard and Stubbs type of has a hoop to it, doesn’t it? The dynamic, let’s consider frazzled, duo teamed up and set off to seek out Maeve, to make use of her to cease Dolores’ human extermination plans. They discovered that somebody beat them to the punch, however not earlier than some hijinks again within the “Westworld” labs, together with operating into two faces who can be extraordinarily acquainted to followers of one other sure HBO collection…
Will we get any extra “Recreation of Thrones” or different HBO collection Easter Eggs?
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, recognized to everybody because the “Recreation of Thrones” showrunners, had a cameo within the episode as a pair of Medieval World scientists about to slice up Drogon with a buzz noticed and ship him to Costa Rica. Will probably be attention-grabbing to see how HBO followers reply to the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it second, particularly given the less-than-favorable reception to the ultimate season of “Thrones.” May there be extra “Recreation of Thrones” associated cameos later within the season? Will there be extra Medieval World publicity, and if that’s the case how intently will it resemble the kingdoms and retains of Westeros? It’s additionally value noting that Ramin Djawadi composed the theme tune for each exhibits, and proper after Benioff and Weiss’ cameo, a bard was seen strumming the “Westworld” theme whereas Stubbs dispatched a bunch of helpless Delos henchman. All maybe a reference to the notorious Pink Wedding ceremony and people haunting Rains of Castamere? Who is aware of.
Who is that this new Engerraund Serac fellow?
In Episode 2 we met Vincent Cassel’s Serac for the primary time and found that he was the unique architect of Rehoboam, the spherical tremendous laptop which plans out people’ lives for them. Serac appeared to suppose that mapping the precise way forward for each individual is a good suggestion provided that “for essentially the most half, humanity has been a depressing little band of thugs stumbling from one disaster to the subsequent.” However Dolores threw a spanner in his morally questionable works. Serac’s resolution? Conscript an equally badass host in Maeve to trace her down and kill her. Cue the subsequent query…
Who will emerge victorious from the approaching Maeve vs. Dolores showdown?
That is the massive query the episode units up. Whereas Maeve was clearly reluctant to seek out and combat Dolores, Serac was capable of management and pressure her to. Dolores, in the meantime, has been arguably as violent in the direction of hosts as people within the collection up till now, so it’s unlikely that she’s going to hesitate in placing the stunning madam down. However who will win if and when the 2 ultimately meet? Properly, Dolores controls all hosts and different machines round her, whereas Maeve has confirmed herself greater than useful with a Katana. Could possibly be a detailed one!
Is that the final we’ll see of Warworld?
By the top of the episode, Maeve managed to flee Warworld — the twisted simulation through which Serac put her. However does that imply our time in Warworld is over? In that case, it was by far the least-explored a part of the park. Virtually each character has burst by way of into the true world at this level, however absolutely a return to the park and its twisted worlds should be on the playing cards sooner or later? In spite of everything, would it not actually be “Westworld” with out a Westworld?
“Westworld” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
