Westworld | Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: “Akane No Mai”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) are back together again talking about not only Westworld, but also Shogun World.

This week, the HBO drama pushed all the way in on the newest park in the game, first teased in the first season finale. How did it play out? No shocker here: Josh and Jo loved their journey through Shogun World, and they’ll tell you exactly why — plus, they’ll talk a bit about where they think it’s all going. Oh, and then there’s Dolores and Teddy. Won’t somebody please think of poor Teddy!?

Westworld | Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: “The Riddle of the Sphinx”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) recaps the latest episode of Westworld, “Riddle of the Sphinx,” and his recap comes with an asterisk.

You know what they say: if you aim to cheat the devil, you owe him an offering — and in the case of the latest Welcome to Westworld podcast, the offering is co-host Jo Garfein (@jopinionated), who sadly could not appear this week due to being sick. Get well soon, Jo, and we’ll see you at Shogun World!

While our regular co-host is on the mend, Josh is joined this week by Emily Fox (@emelette), and how appropriate! In “Riddle of the Sphinx,” it’s revealed that Emily, the Man in Black’s daughter, is the same guest who escaped from The Raj in episode three. The Man in Black and Emily have reunited, just as Josh’s very bad Ed Harris impression and Emily have joined forces on the podcast. 

In their conversation about “Riddle of the Sphinx,” Josh and Emily weigh in on what some fans have described as the best episode of Westworld yet, the various sequences involving Peter Mullan as James Delos, the possibilities and implications of the human-host hybrid experiments, the Man in Black’s apparent redemption arc, the return of Elsie Stubbs (!!), the secrets of Ghost Nation, and much more.

Let us know what you think of this week’s podcast in the comments below and send us your questions through our feedback form. Josh and Jo will be back next week to discuss episode five of season two, “Akane No Mai,” where all things Shogun World shall be revealed.

Loki has an army, the Avengers have a Hulk, Armistice has a dragon, and we have a podcast!

Welcome back to “Welcome to Westworld,” from your friendly neighborhood hosts Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated). This week, we’re digging into “Virtù e Fortuna,” the third episode of season two, filled with unexpected park detours and action sequences aplenty. Who is the park’s newest guest? Jo has a theory!

Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.

This week, Josh and Jo talk about “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” the ninth episode of the series. If you thought the Bernard reveal in episode seven was the biggest bombshell surrounding the character, think again. Season one’s penultimate episode flips the script once again with yet another major Bernard twist, likely blindsiding many viewers — but hopefully not those of you who listen to this podcast and have been on #TeamBernardold for weeks and weeks now. Josh and Jo talk at length about the twist now that it’s out on the show, what it could possibly mean, whether or not we’ll see Bernard again after what Ford makes him do, the various possibilities surrounding Arnold’s death and true motives, and much more. Also, Josh gets very worked up about The Dark Knight. Curse you, Two-Face!

Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.

This week, Josh and Jo talk about “Trace Decay,” the eighth episode of the series. Last week, Bernard learned a hard lesson about the nature of his reality. Now what? That’s where the episode begins, and far from where it ends. Beyond the Bernard of it all, “Trace Decay” moves Maeve and the Man in Black’s stories further along the path, in separate and interlocking ways. Josh and Jo talk about all of that, attempt to make sense of the show’s different timelines, address your feedback, and more.

Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.

This week, Josh and Jo talk about “Trompe L’Oeil,” the riveting seventh episode of the series. It’s an episode that sufficiently changes the game, confirming a shocking detail about one character, while simultaneously putting another character on a collision course with a wall. How’s that for vague but just specific enough for those who get it? Seriously, don’t listen to this week’s podcast or read any comments below until you have watched this week’s episode. It was a big one, and Josh and Jo are all over it. Plus, there’s a death draft! Everyone loves the death draft, right?

In addition to the podcast, Josh spoke with several of the folks involved with bringing the episode to life. Check the links below for those interviews published on The Hollywood Reporter:

Jonathan “Jonah” Nolan and Lisa Joy (The Showrunners)
Jeffrey Wright (Bernard)
Sidse Babett Knudsen (Theresa)
