Craig Carter and Meredith Fowler take a moment to review the incredible season two of Westworld. They discuss the Teddy and Stubbs twists (2:22), themes of privacy and choice (5:31), lingering questions (11:28), podcast milestones (15:15), our favorite blooper (20:04), the music (25:38), things we didn’t like (31:52), and our favorite moments (42:07).
Well, that episode wrecked us emotionally. But we’re here for you. We’ll hold you gently until the pain goes away while we dive deep into “Vanishing Point.” Craig Carter and Brian Sutorious discuss some cool things from last week’s episode (2:12) before talking about Ford meddling with Bernard and Maeve (8:38), Dolores and Teddy’s tragic journey (38:37), and the Man in Black winning the father of the year award (53:49).
In a season of emotional episodes, this may very well have been the most emotional. “Vanishing Point” played with our heartstrings like the London Philharmonic. Craig Carter and Jess Bowers discuss the episode (3:20) before talking about their favorite moments (17:38).
Les écorchés literally translated means “the tormented.” That turned out to be very appropriate with all the torment we saw in the latest episode of Westworld. Craig Carter and Ashley Melzer give their general thoughts on “Les Écorchés” (1:24) before discussing the attack on the Mesa part I (24:42), the Man in Black and Maeve (43:08), and the attack on the Mesa part II (54:50).
“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).
Shogun World was everything we’d hoped it would be and more. While we’re all recovering from that incredible episode, Craig and Jess discuss the beautiful and brutal ‘Akane No Mai’ (3:23) before talking about their favorite moments (24:48).
The third episode of Westworld Season 2 was certainly full of virtue and fortune. Craig and Brian dive deep into ‘Virtù e Fortuna’ to discuss adventures in The Raj (3:19), Maeve finding new and old friends (21:12), Dolores on a warpath (42:31), and crazy theories (1:34:43).
