Man in Black: Now Wyatt on the other hand, that's something new. Is he just another stooge for the tourists to mount on their wall at home or have you finally made a worthy adversary? Someone to stop me from finding the center of the Maze?
Dr. Robert Ford: And what is it you're hoping to find there?
Man in Black: [to Teddy Flood] You know why you exist, Teddy? The world out there-the one you'll never see-was one of plenty. A fat soft teat people cling to their entire life. Every need taken care of except one. Purpose. Meaning. So they come...

Things are starting to move

The best episode to date, "Contrapasso" offers a little bit for everyone, even the bacchanal we all knew was coming.

We keep with the three basic story-lines: the Man In Black with a hat, now with a sprinkle of Teddy; Dolores and William's team-up; and what happens in the blurry line between the theme park and the outside. "Contrapasso" does a great job in balancing the story-lines and, after four episodes of world building, offers a good chunk of plot development. And it offers quite a lot.

Finally we starting to see a little bit more of what is behind the story of the show: the interests of the 'real' people, the difficulties in finding purpose in life, the secrets they have, etc., etc. "Westworld" is making a great job in making us care for everyone, 'hosts' and 'guests', to then remind us of who is 'human' and who is not, while keeping some things up: who is actually really human?, what is the actual timeline of the events?, how many layers does Westworld really have and what is under what is already under?, how come there is so little security in the place? That's the biggest problem with the show right now: clients being punched really hard and them being 'ok' with it, and the little security the premises seem to have. On the other hand, that is because everyone is shady and has a secret purpose.

"Contrapasso" does a great job in showing its strengths and satiating the viewer's deepest desires. We get emotional: Dolores quest for freedom, Teddy's arc, William and Logan's tensions..., physical: fights, punches, deaths, a big party..., and brainy and philosophical: all the talks with meanings inside the meanings. It is sometimes a little heavy-handed, in-your-face, especially in the 'deep' conversations, but it is interesting and engrossing.
