Storyline

Logan, William, Dolores and Slim head to Pariah, a dangerous and wild town of outcasts, to meet El Lazo. They team up and El Lazo tells that there is a shipment of nitroglycerin that he wants. They ambush a wagon to steal the explosive for the army, but Slim is killed. William shoots and kills the escort team and they return to Pariah to party in a brothel, where William and Logan have an argument. Dolores sees El Lazo stealing the nitroglycerin and she asks William to flee with her. Meanwhile, the Man in Black is riding with Lawrence and Teddy; out of the blue, he kills Lawrence to use his blood to save Teddy to force him to lead him to Wyatt. Elsie finds that someone is transmitting data out of the park and decides to investigate. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Dr. Robert Ford: A greyhound is a racing dog. Spends its life running in circles, chasing a bit of felt made up like a rabbit. One day, we took it to the park. Our dad had warned us how fast that dog was, but we couldn't resist. So, my brother took off the leash, and in that instant, the dog spotted a cat. I imagine it must have looked just like that piece of felt. He ran. Never saw a thing as beautiful as that old dog running. Until, at last, he finally caught it. And to the horror of everyone, he killed that ...

Embracing the Strangeness
31 October 2016 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

We are 5 episodes in, and I'm already prepared to call this one of the strangest shows I have ever seen. Who knows, the ending could make the show fall flat on its face, but I'm really enjoying every bit of this Nolan & J.J. Abrams project.

If this was indeed the episode in which the showrunners decided to take a big break and re-think the structure of the rest of the season, it showed. Not only was it paced incredibly well, but I honestly feel like this was the most important episode to date for Westworld. Plenty of clues as to who exactly the Man in Black is, as well as developments for Dolores and Maeve in their search for self-discovery. As Ford said, this whole season is really about self-discovery, not just with the hosts. William and The Man in Black (if they aren't actually the same person) are also on journeys of their own.

It's hard to review Westworld week to week because each episode don't give us show changing answers right away; we get little teases here and there as to the endgame, but I doubt we will truly know until last few episodes. With that said, I'm finding the directing, cinematography, writing, and acting all to be compelling enough to keep going. I mean let's face it, watching Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris in that last scene together should be enough for anyone to be hooked.
