This is the first time I’ve felt underwhelmed by an episode of Westworld, None of the revelations feel organic or awe inspiring, to say the least. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t connect a lot of the important details right off the bat (which is why I listen to you guys), but I’ve always been able to connect on a subliminal level and enjoy the sense of escapism that is evoked by the underlying themes of the show. Feels like the magic has dried up.
Perhaps the finale will prove me wrong and all will be forgiven. We shall find out.
Hate to say it, but if any Westworld episode could be said to be dull, this was it, which is too bad because there’s only one episode left. Unfortunately a few characters have been neglected this season. After the exciting first time in Naziworld, Maeve’s storyline has been uninspiring and repetitious. It was one thing to cheer for her when she fought to be reunited with her host daughter in Westworld, but that no longer resonates and it’s not enough for us to care if she beats Dolores. So now Maeve is the villain? And the writers have also neglected Bernard and Stubbs to the point that I no longer know or care where they’re going, or what they’re after. Caleb’s big revelation in this episode was something most of us had guessed a while back, and that awakening too felt slow and drawn out. So now, after all that, it’s not Dolores’ fight anymore? Ok then writers’ room.
