Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

In this episode, we are introduced to two new characters played by Ben Barnes and Jimmi Simpson. They both do a great job at portraying two completely different characters. Thandie Newton also gets a stronger role in this episode. Ed Harris takes the cake for the best performance in this episode. He perfectly portrays a bad guy on a mission.

The story once again is great and engaging. We see more of Westworld and the people behind it.

Pacing and tone are consistent throughout the entire episode.

The science behind the androids and the world itself is still left unanswered.

This episode was slower and not as fast paced at the first episode.

The blend between nudity and violence is once again perfectly mixed.

Pros: Engaging story, good performances by Ed Harris and Thandie Newton, consistent pacing and tone, perfect blend between violence and nudity

Cons: Slower episode and many unanswered questions

Overall Rating: 8.5/10
