Just watched Episode 7 and it *might* be making some sense now but the time jumps are killing me. Just like another poster, I'm trying to just relax and ride it out.

I have to say, though, man...Teddy...poor Teddy. Is he like The Terminator or what?

Just watched S2E8. The best episode of S2 IMHO. Especially the cinematography.

Yup. I'm still rather confused as to the overall plot, but man last night's episode was gorgeous. And I admit an entire episode where nearly all the dialogue was in Lakota was pretty cool.

Agree. Amazing episode, beautiful story. The actor playing Akecheta... wow, what can I say. Guest star Emmy.

I think we're down to two timelines?

Zahn McClarnon. He was also great in Season 2 of FARGO.

I watched it last night. Sure it didn't push the main story forward, but it was a nice side road journey. Interesting to see that Delores wasn't the only host to wake up. I smiled when he was reunited with the woman he loved, and my heart broke when he found her again and he couldn't bring her back. I'm curious to see what the "door" is supposed to be, and if it's the same thing that Delores is trying to get to.

On another note, I hope Maeve doesn't die. And where the heck is her crew? I figured they'd have come to the rescue guns blazing to save her by the end of the episode.

This has been so interesting even though at times it can be confusing with it's deeper meaning. Nonetheless I have been enjoying it. And this is coming from someone who's never read the book or seen the movie.

There is no book. Just the original movie. Which is a fun popcorn flick, if not at all deep.

You're right Mark. I saw Michael Crichton was involved and I immediately thought it was a book he wrote before the movie was made. My mistake. On the other hand, for the writers to elaborate this much based on the movie alone is nothing short of amazing. Major kudos to them

I'm watching Season 1 from the beginning again, and noticing a lot of things that didn't catch my attention the first time around.

When Dolores' father starts to misfire, one of the people investigating his code worries aloud that the dysfunction could be contagious. Before he goes completely nuts, he whispers to Delores the line about violent delights, and she repeats that line to other hosts, including Maeve. In another early episode, one of the techs complains that the hosts are always talking to each other. Bernard explains that they're trying to self-correct.

Anyway, it's interesting to me because I'm seeing all this evidence of the hosts waking up in subtle ways and passing their newfound self-awareness along to one another. (Some are more receptive than others. Dolores and Maeve are sensitive to it, but Teddy is not. Is that due to age? Dolores, we're told, is the oldest host in the park. The man in black has been coming for 30 years, and I think Dolores had been there already for about 10 years before he showed up? I don't know if that's right or not. Just an impression I get. How long has Maeve been in service. Are the older hosts more susceptible to the "contagion" than the newer hosts?)

Something I also noticed by starting over from the beginning: the character Akecheta is around in S1E2, but it's not the same actor under the makeup. Zahn McClarnon was amazing this past Sunday in S2E8.
