Dude Watches – Westworld – S1E04

by Cord Culver on October 26, 2016


This week on Dude Watches the gang recaps and reviews HBO’s Westworld, S1E04, Dissonance Theory.

Episode synopsis:

Dolores joins William and Logan on a bounty hunt in the badlands; the Man in Black finds a critical clue; Dr. Ford and Theresa discuss the future of the park; Maeve is troubled by a recurring vision.

This week’s episode gave us some new insights into who the Man in Black is in real life, and his abilities to break into and out of prisons, and also begs the question, how does he know so much about Arnold? We also get a glimpse at Dr. Ford’s willingness to burn crumble his creation all for the sake of “creative control.” We discover that Bernard is sending Dolores on a journey to discover her freedom, and Maeve learns that she’s not crazy, and she’s not alone. This episode also begs the question, with Dr. Ford throwing so many narratives into disarray, what is happening outside the purview of the narrators, and what is happening on script? This also begs the question, if hosts like Maeve and Dolores are going so far off of their narrative, why isn’t anyone seeing?

With the narrative still driving on, and six more episodes to go, there is still plenty of time to see the resolution of these questions and more… ***Spoilers*** For those of you that watched the post-credits preview, you see that we get a showdown between Dr. Ford and the Man in Black. Oh, Westworld, you cleverly crafted maze of a television show, where will you take us to next.

This week’s music was “A Forest” by the Cure.
