    Yeah I'm not gonna lie keeping my head up with that episode was a wreck and I think I failed the exam. I mean I have a lot of what happened set in my mind but there is a absolute buttload of what the smurf going on and I'm going to have to read up on what I just watched later so I can get my head around it. This episode, for a schmuck like me, was just being a wee bit too clever.

    EDIT: Oh, and Stubbs is deliberately inconclusive on the current evidence provided, imho, and is written to be exactly that.

    Bubba at the start of the episode: "Eh, I don't think I'll be watching next season."
    Bubba at the end of the episode: “Yeah, I’m definitely not watching next season.”

    Apart from a few cool moments over the season, I’ve just stopped caring about any of the characters... human or host. Maeve was my favourite host but got properly shafted this series. Apart from the pointless trip to Eastworld, she spent most of her time dead on a guerney. I think the only humans I liked were Elsie and Sizemore and... *waves*

    The whole thing was messy, confusing and poorly structured... which is a shame as some of the acting was still excellent.

    That final shot of Bernard walking through that door was a metaphor for my brain walking out of this series. Might still check out some of the show’s piano covers though...

    I still think those scenes can be read as ambiguous, and the scene you mentioned as clever editing.

    However, the director of the episode confirmed that Stubbs is a host.

    So, I concede.

    I ended up reading a timeline they posted on reddit and I think for the most part I've wrapped my head around it all now. Neat.

    As for Stubbs being confirmed a host, I wish they'd stop doing that off-screen. Confirm it in the show or leave us debating. It's so much more fun that way. If you have to explain something off-screen, I start questioning the writing of the show.

    I'm actually with... Loony BoB on this one. This show has some great acting, characters (many of whom are now dead...), and tries things no other show has to my knowledge, but man it's such a mindsmurf. Even without the layered timelines it would be difficult to keep track of who is doing what and why. Even Maeve who had a straightforward goal, got confusing with her new powers and the random sidetrack to Shogunworld. It's so hard to follow that it becomes less interesting.

    “Okay, here’s what quantum computing is. You know Schrodinger’s cat? It’s a cat inside a box and it’s either living or dead. Boom, you got a rudimentary understanding of an incredible complex scientific field.”

    “Now, imagine that instead of a cat, it’s a person. And it doesn’t matter if it’s living or dead, because either way, it doesn’t understand the plot of Westworld because no one understands the plot of Westworld, not even the people who wrote it, because they’re all making it up as they go,” Barbado continued.


    “Now imagine there’s two cats in the box. And both of them are Dolores. But one of them is played by Tessa Thompson. What the smurf is up with that?”

    I'm still not sure I fancy coming back to this show after the mess that was Season 2... but damn this trailer looks great. I approve of the casting of Aaron Paul.

    The season 2 finale was great, though.

    Looks like HBO's sound mixing is still total trout. Can't understand a single word he's saying.
