I've become fixated on that photo of Arnold and Charlie that Bernard was looking at, and how it links to the wider theme of parent/child relationships in this season. Arnold created Dolores. Dolores created Bernard.
This made me realise a couple of thimgs:
1)When Bernard was looking at that photo, he saw himself as Charlie as much as he saw himself as Arnold. 2) Dolores loves Bernard. She created him. She is his mother. Yes they killed each other. They also bought each other back.
These two will fight like family.
TIA to whomever shares which scene's and/or episodes in S1 & S2 were filmed using the CinemaScope 2.4 :1 format (or one of it's wide screen relatives if that is the case). I searched for a reddit detailing this element but apparently nobody has posted a definitive one. I knpw of opening sequence s2E1 with dolores and the cradle scenes. Is that it.
Hey! I am at season 2 episode 2, so try to no to spoil me them plot twists please. :)
How does park work? Is it just located on very large physical space, like Island? It's not portal dimension or anything, right? But then territory must be just enormous - like whole US state or something.
How exactly guest protection system worked? Hosts still can punch, kick, cut guests and that deals physical damage - guests get wounded and feel pain. So it's possible that host can just stab guest to death? How come firearms don't hurt guests? It's so sketchy.
How much time in total have passed during season 1 "current events"?
Do park workers physically travel great distances to retrieve "killed" hosts? That sounds so sketchy too given landscape is enormous.
How cycles of life work in the park? Each host can only die once every 24 hours or "killed" hosts quickly get back in action? For example what does it mean when we see train with Teddy getting on the station? Does it mean it's new day? Or he can travel on that train many times a day?
How is that possible that later hosts sometimes can't pour drink into glass properly or perform other basic moves, but earlier in season 2 we are shown such amazing models they are no different than human and show real emotions, interactions and whatnot?
Will we get some asnwers for questions from season 1? ;p
Does season 2 gets any better? Flashbacks are dull, Dolores is reduced to a boring maniac (I didn't liked her to begin with though), Ford was very interesting character and he got killed and it's basically just open local conflict between group of machines and humans now, season 1 was way more interesting, exciting, mysterious and thrilling while season 2 got very boring very soon. :(
I'm really happy Westworld has been nominated so many times. However if it doesn't win can we not just flood this subreddit with posts saying X person was robbed.
It's low effort, and most of all demeans the actor/show that actually won.
For example when The Crown was winning multiple awards everyone posted saying that their favourite show got robbed, mainly from people that didn't even watch The Crown. I just felt it was disrespectful to the people that worked so hard on that show.
And I'm sure the people that work on Westworld, who know how hard it is to make a big budget TV show don't appreciate it either. They don't come on here and go "yeah you tell them, The Crown is crap". They probably find it as disrespectful.
And I'm sure for many of the actors having praise delivered from the fans is the most important thing. And having the conversation be about how they were "robbed" takes away from that in my opinion.
