    Okay, so another mind-blowing episode. I am a little less confused about what is going on now but I still do not understand how this is not a single complete story arc that ends next week for good. I hope that next season will be as intricate as this one.

    The entire multiple time line theory has been confirmed. Bernard as a replicant of Arnold was a great reveal and good plot twist. However, Bernard killing himself makes no sense unless that is the way that Ford uses to reset the hosts, their death equals some sort of hard reset. I would imagine that even if he spins it that Bernard was somehow involved in Theresa’s death and committed suicide, an autopsy or any detailed medical exam will reveal that he is and has always been a host. Also, the Ghost Tribe warriors attacking Stubs was no coincidence. That is Fords way to eliminate him as a potential threat. I would not be surprised if we find out that most of the staff are hosts.
    I do wonder how Ford has the power to control all of the hosts with his mind. That just does not make sense unless he is also a host. He could put in a dozen backdoors but unless he has a wifi chip up in his brain and a microprocessor someplace else he should not have mind control powers over everyone/everything in the park. I understand Maeve, she is a robot, she is controlled via tablet so it makes sense that the host can send and receive signals but Ford? I think he is a host. That is why the man in black threatened to cut him open at the salon with Teddy.
    I find William’s journey into insanity fascinating. He is the picture of OCD or something. II don’t know how he murdered an entire company of hosts, chopped them up into little pieces, and Logan slept through it all.
    I do think that this episode does explain the Man in Black a little better. I don’t think he assaulted Dolores in the barn. I do think that he just showed her what she really. is, causing her to begin reliving her quest from 30 years ago.
    Again, I do not understand how or why the hosts have bodily functions and needs. How does a robot generate urine? Why do they have sexual desires? Why would they all kill each other at the end of their loop? That all needs to be cleaned up and repaired, that has to be expensive. I guess they have the technology to cheaply repair the hosts, without leaving scars, but repairing clothing? Dry cleaning Maeve’s dresses must be a fortune or Hector’s leather jacket. What is there a whole staff of fantastic host seamstresses just weaving all day long?
    My final comment is about the blond, Angela (according to imdb), that introduced William to the park. She knew about the hosts. She knew everything. But she doesn’t know or suspect that she is a host? I guess that is a huge Easter egg saying that every single person in the “real” world can and probably is a host. You guys played a clip from the original movie where a scientist talks about computers making the robots. Now we know in this world robots can and do make robots.

    All I have to say is all Hail our new leader Maeve. She wins this weeks Game of Thrones.

      Also, I love your podcasts. Stars is always replaying Spartacus, I will have to rewatch the series and listen to Jupiter’s Rooster. I tried reviewing this podcast but I do not subscribe to iTunes so I cannot figure out where to write a review.
