Sweet, fancy Moses. That was one hell of a season finale. A ton of answers and a ton of questions. After talking about the episode in general (2:10), hosts Craig Carter and Jess Bowers discuss Maeve’s sacrifice (7:11), Dolores’ body switching (13:15), the Man in Black being... somewhere (24:01), and our favorite moments (31:37).
“Phase Space” promptly removed our minds from our skulls and put them in a dreamlike state. Craig and Jess discuss “Previously on Westworld” (2:29), the happenings of Delos (3:42), Dolores and Teddy on the crazy train (13:32), the Man in Black reconnecting with his daughter (27:58), Maeve slicing and dicing her way to freedom (48:09), and Bernard in the cradle (1:07:01).
Samurai and ninja and impalings, oh my! “Akane No Mai” was an incredible introduction to Shogunworld. Craig and Brian discuss the Delos cleanup crew (3:58), Dolores and Teddy’s heartbreaking journey back to Sweetwater (11:42), and Maeve and company’s journey through feudal Japan (35:43).
We’re still recovering from what might be the best episode yet (we feel like we’re saying that a lot these days). After a brief discussion about the episode in general, Craig and Meredith discuss Delos’ disturbing experiment (8:28), the Man in Black on the path to glory (36:29), and Bernard and Elsie’s horrific adventure (1:04:55).
We’ve seen western. We’ve seen sci-fi. This time we saw Westworld go pure horror and it was glorious. Lisa Joy did not come to play for her directorial debut. Craig and Jake discuss ‘The Riddle of the Sphinx’ and its many layers (2:17) before talking about their favorite moments (18:39).
