Liam is the head of Incite currently taking over from his father, however he doesn’t have the keys to Incite’s kingdom a giant sphere ball of data mapping out a path to perfection for every human in the world. It turns out the man with the passcode to control Rehoboam as it is called lies with a mysterious figure named Serac.

Dolores is on a quest to control “Our World” and clearly needs funds and friends in order to make that happen. She partners up with Liam to get information on Rehoboam until she gets a pit too close. She is saved by Caleb, an ex military vet who lost his friend on a mission, works construction now because he can’t get a better job, and plays real life Grand Theft Auto in the evening via an app called Rico to make some extra scratch. Rehoboam is actually the son of King Solomon. Turns out there was another system named Solomon that came online back in the late 2030s.

Bernard is back and being framed by Fake Charlotte as whichever host is controlling her body attempts to salvage the damage to the Delos corporation in the wake of the events in Westworld 3 months ago. Bernard however escapes his aggressors and charts a boat to take him back to Westworld in order to get help to fight against Dolores.

  About HBO's Westworld

In 1973, celebrated author and filmmaker Michael Crichton released Westworld, his visionary idea of what a theme park could be as human-looking androids fulfilled our every desire. Four decades later, creators Jonathan and Lisa Joy Nolan are taking the concept to the next evolutionary step as Westworld can now be ‘fleshed’ out as a deeper concept that explores the vast array of potential and consequence from such advanced technology. The one-hour drama series is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite can live without limits, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. The cast of the series includes Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Tessa Thompson, and more.

The Mother of Exiles Analysis

Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have many Doloreses? Doloresi? for you…

Our story begins with William aka The Man In Black questioning the nature of his reality as Charlotte (further known as Char-lores) comes to William to warn him of the impending takeover of Delos. He is haunted by the memory of his dead daughter that he killed and it is driving him insane. Char-lores uses this to her advantage to have William committed, his status on the board removed and his voting power transferred to the acting chair which in this case is Char-Lores! Now committed the Man in Black becomes the Man in White and truly has no idea what is real and what is not, including himself.

Why do we say Char-lores? Well see at the end of Season2, Haleores escaped the island with 5 Host Pearls in a bag. Haleores made Char-Lores, who then re-made Dolores, who then made Bernard/Arnold, Musashi, and Martin Liam's security head. But what we learn this week is that Dolores, Char-lores, Martin, and Musashi are not themselves. Wait for it. They are all DOLORES!!! Pearl Blown! Turns out when you want to take over the human race, the only person you can trust is yourself. Sadly Maeve, Stubbs, and Bernard all find out this horrific truth in the most non-opportune time.

Be sure to answer our park satisfaction questionnaire this week down in the comments. What outward character will house the 5th pearl? Will Maeve survive her battle with Musa-lores? Will Bernard and Stubbs escape from Marti-lores? Are you Dolores? Am I Me? Tune in next week for another vacation Beyond Westworld!

The Absence of Field Analysis

Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have a future narrative for you…

Charlotte Hale is front and center this week as we learn what has been happening over a Delos since the incident in the park. Turns out Serac and Incite have been busy buying up shares to take a controlling interest in Delos. Not only is this happening right under the big wigs noses, but Charlotte is also a SPY! Turns out the S1 storyline of smuggling data out of the park was true but it wasn't to oust the man in black. It was to transmit Delos intel to Incite, but for what purpose remains to be seen.

Meanwhile Dolores and Caleb's story picks back up right after the events of episode 1. Looks like either Delos, Incite, or the system is looking for Dolores but Caleb knows better. Caleb and Dolores escape and then she takes him on a Caleb this is your life journey not only looking at his past, but also telling him how Rehoboam has already predicted his future. So he can either let it play out and commit suicide in 10 years, or he can take control and fight back at Dolores' side.

Be sure to answer our park satisfaction questionnaire this week down in the comments. Who the HALE is in Charlotte Hale? Will Caleb ever learn the truth of who Dolores is? Will Charlotte learn the truth about who she is? Will we? Tune in next week for another vacation Beyond Westworld!

The Winter Line Analysis

Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have a simulation for you…

Maeve seems to have retained all of her superpowers but for some reason they are not working quite right in a possible new park, possibly park 3 according to the weirdness at Delos Destinations. She runs into her old lover Hector as well as old friends Felix, Sylvester, and SIZEMORE? Clearly something is afoot as the mid-century europeans would say and it takes almost breaking Sizemore to figure out that we are in a very crafty simulation of WarWorld. Only Maeve is real but her pearl is trapped and she does her best Neo impression to hack the real world from inside the Matrix, only to her escape plan foiled by Dr. Dastardly himself SERAC!

Meanwhile Bernard is still trying to figure out if he is 100% or just a "Damaged Arnold" as he seeks help from his old pal Ashley Stubbs once Bernard returns to the Island where Westworld is. Bernard and Stubbs can't make it all the way back to the Mesa, so they side tour to Park 4 where we see mid-evil stuff all around graciously donated by the Game of Thrones folks and HBO. Can we call Park 4 Mid-evilWorld or WesterosWorld? Only time will tell. Bernard is really their looking for Maeve, unfortunately when he and Stubbs arrive at Cold Storage on Level 73, it turns out Maeve's core has been taken from her head.

Be sure to answer our park satisfaction questionnaire this week down in the comments. Should Maeve Help Serac? How will these stories converge with Dolores and Caleb's back on the mainland? Where are the real Felix and Sylvester? Where the hell is William aka The Man in Black? Tune in next week for another vacation Beyond Westworld!
