Did You Know?


Ford is depicted as a younger version of Anthony Hopkins. For this to be done, effects supervisor Jay Worth collaborated with ILP, a Stockholm-based VFX studio. References were pulled from Hopkins' early acting career, when he was in his 30s and 40s. See more »


When Ashley and Elsie arrive where the campers talking about chopping wood, they are meant to be in a frozen state. When Elsie talks about the woodchopper gone missing, the guy on the left is looking over his shoulder. Then when Elsie is talking about one person who is authorized to handle the axe, that same guy is now facing forward. See more »

The entire truth haven't been told yet
17 October 2016 | by jeetg04See all my reviews

Start of the episode led to the beginning of a new day, tracing back to the staged story line of Dolores(Evan Rachel Wood) in the 1st episode and again reminding audience of how virtual yet real this world seems.

William (Jimmi Simpson) is getting involved in the adventures of Westworld indicating the need of this park in the actual world. On the other hand a new story-line has been added to the world for which Teddy Flood (James Marsden) is going to play a critical role; and it is designed by Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) himself.

The highlight of this episode was for sure the introduction of the idea that consciousness was indeed the part of early design of droids, this element is going to be expanded more in the future and has quite a depth. As we have witnessed in the last two episodes; the anomaly in bots is somehow related to consciousness, and only future will tell how it is related.
