At the end when the man in black is riding out into the sunset through the desert with his crew, the sun is on the horizon, it was shot in what photographers call: "Sweet Light". The horses suddenly begin to stop as they see a female figure on a horse coming toward them. The person on the horse is his daughter Emily with a giant setting sun right behind her , as she approaches in silhouette. The next edit, it is mid afternoon, and the sun is directly overhead, as she says: "Hello Dad". See more »


James Delos: They said there were two fathers; One above, one below. They lied, there was only ever, the devil. And when you look up from the bottom, it was just his reflection... laughing back down at you.

Best of Season 2 by FAR!!
14 May 2018 | by osorio_gabriel17See all my reviews

Every time I watch Westworld I have to retrace my steps just to try and understand the damn thing; however, after watching this brilliant master piece of an episode, I couldn't keep my eyes off of the thrilling, uplifting and climatic events for one second. It's by far the best episode of Season 2 and MAYBE even the best episode of the series (probably behind Season 1 Finale). This specific episode was easier to follow and understand while keeping its unique intellect intact throughout its memorable scenes and acting. THE ENDING IS AMAZING!!! Kept pausing the show just to see how much time was left on the episode, because I did not want it to END!
