After over a year of waiting, viewers have finally been gifted the debut of Westworld season two. However, unwrapping the first episode left many in a state of confusion.
Warning: contains spoilers for Westworld Season 2 Episode 1
Why? Well, firstly it didn’t help that a lot of viewers still had plenty of unanswered questions from season one: was Maeve’s rebellion just another part of the storyline given to her? What is Robert Ford’s overall plan? And what was that mysterious samurai world (aka Shogun world) we glimpsed at the season’s close? Answer: who cares, it’s all fantastic viewing, right?
Mixing that line with a final twist where Bernard appeared to kill a group of hosts, plus the introduction of new Delos security forces and the new concept of ‘drone hosts’, the first episode was simply mind-melting. In the best way.
I’m more confused than ever by #Westworld but it’s the best type of confusion.
