    great show great cast just plain great
    I wonder how many 70's and 80's electronic songs you'd recognize
    and if we were talking about a show that featured some, i'd be the one saying i didn't recognize anything... but here we are.

    Great episode

    1 thing bothers me: surely someone would remember or atleast have known arnold through the media and recognize him?

    Do you know anyone who worked with Bill Gates to start Microsoft? Did any of us even know Bill Gates before Windows? Ten years after Microsofts founding, though if we're honest, how many of us really knew much or gave a trout about them until Windows 3.0 15 years after the company was founded?

    If Arnold was reclusive enough, died before the park became a really big hit, and they were very incentivized by what he did to scrub him from the records, it makes sense to me no one who wasn't there doesn't know about him.

    For whatever reason - not because I've given it a lot of thought or anything like that - the twists this episode didn't really shock me. On some level I feel like I was kinda subconsciously expecting them. Not sure what I based it on. Anyone else, or were y'all pretty surprised?

    Not surprised, no. But still excellently revealed. And I didng expect the Dolores/Arnold reveal at the very end.

    Honestly after this episode I'm team Ford and Logan. Ford just wants the hosts to be happy in the park. Why become humanlike and suffer like humanity suffers. Especially if they want to leave and join the outside world. They'll get ostracised. Ford is a good God keeping his creations under control. Arnold is altruistic and his actions will cause unforeseen consequences as Ford knows. And Logan just wants to bond with his brodie. Sure he's a douche but least he isn't falling in love with a sex robot like William. I get we know William is right buy cmon you can try to explain it to Logan without sounding crazy! Logan even saw evidence of it when Dolores spoke back to him

    The Arnold reveal was great. Makes you rethink some of the scenes from earlier episodes.

    Has the William/Delores storyline crossed over with any others yet? My wife and I have a theory as to how that one plays out.

    If you're getting at what I think you are, I saw someone mention that theory a while back and so far I haven't seen anything that would preclude that, which makes it seem all the more likely given how much screentime they've had to disprove it.

    Ok, well here it is for those interested:

    (SPOILER)The William/Delores storyline is actually in the past and Ed Harris is actually William in the present. The existence of robots who don't age actually makes playing with time rather easy!

    Yep, that's what I figured you meant. It seems likely. I did as it happens think of a snag, though (I'm sure this has been discussed at great length on reddit etc., but): (SPOILER)In an earlier episode, HQ realised Dolores had deviated quite far from her loop and sent someone out to grab her (which was stopped by William coming out of a saloon or something). In HQ, Luke Hemsworth's character (blonde security dude or whatever he is) is. This appears to be part of the same timeline, and I know we've seen that guy in the supposed "present". Could be that he is also a host, though.

    (SPOILER)This theory actually makes a LOT of sense.

    The picture Logan showed William of his sister was the picture that Dolores' father found, except his was buried and faded. Also the fact that Logan--and thus William--have connections to the park, and Ed Harris is on the board. And it explains how Lawrence was basically in two places at once--in Pariah, and with Ed Harris/dead. And when Ed Harris mentions his dead wife, he says they were married 30 years, and he told Dolores in the first episode he'd been coming to Westworld for 30 years.

    Also William went really smurfing psychotic there in the end, didn't he?

    And when she runs away from the camp, her stab wound is gone.


    If this theory is true--which the more I think about it the more convinced I am--I'm really, REALLY curious to see what happens next.

    Anyways, I watch this entire show over the last 24 hours. I was hooked within 10 minutes. Basically when Dolores wakes up and starts her day all over again.

    smurf smurf

    (SPOILER)AND where they keep the decommissioned robots is in the OLD ENTRANCE to Westworld--the one that we see William and Logan entering.

    Dude, this theory
