Rank #9: 203 – Virtu e Fortuna
Rank #10: 208 – Kiksuya
This week’s episode of HBO’s Westworld was truly a thing of beauty. Learning about the long and winding journey of Akecheta, exquisitely played by Zahn McClarnon, in his search for truth, meaning, and his long lost love, was as profound a watching experience as I’ve had these past few years. Along the way he unlocks his own consciousness, meets god and the devil, and learns about a path his people may take to be free forever. Will he reach The Door? What, and who, will he find there? And will Maeve make it to be reunited with her daughter currently under Akecheta’s protection? We discuss this, you feedback, and the theories and speculation everyone’s buzzing about on this week’s pod!
