Did You Know?


The piece the "host" is playing at the piano in the scene between Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Wright is called "Reverie" by Claude Debussy. The reveries are also an important part of the plot. See more »


Right before Ashley points out, that the carving on the wooden turtle shell is the Orion constellation, you can see in a closeup, that Elsie is already holding the wooden turtle shell the right way. In the following shot she does not rotate it. Then, after that, the shell is suddenly turned upside down. 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.
