Westworld has yet to really wow me since its premiere a few weeks back. There's no denying that the quality of the show is still high, but I think we are in need of a big episode relatively soon.

This episode saw the gradual progression of a few seemingly major story lines. Ed Harris as The Man in Black is making his way to the deep secrets of Westworld and 'Wyatt', who we have yet to actually meet on the show. Of course, it's safe to assume that this is the same Wyatt that was implemented into Teddy's backstory just last week. Could Wyatt actually be someone of greater purpose? Maybe even, perhaps Arnold himself? Ford's old partner and friend turned bad?

It's hard to give Westworld a proper review and score when there are constantly more questions raised than answered week to week. What's Bernard's involvement in all of this? Will he indeed help Dolores as she asked? Will Maeve get to the answers before it's too late? Is The Man in Black a host like a lot of fans are predicting, and thus will never be able to get to the bottom of the questions anyway?

I don't know that a full 10 episode arc was needed before we inevitably see hosts revolt, but I can't complain when this show is a consistent mind trip every Sunday night. For now, I'm just at a wait and see approach to this show.

+Who the heck is Wyatt

-So many more questions raised
