What would be astounding would be if Juliet had been successfully and secretly replicated as a host before offing herself in the bathtub. She meets up with him in the "Valley Beyond" and shoots him in the head.


Dang, I'd pay money to see that.





A cyborg?


You mean, since the iterations of James Delos kept degrading over a relatively short period of time, they switched to using a human brain in a host body?


At last, someone asked an intelligent question. You could be right.
I like the way you think Fluffy!!!

Give me 1/100th of Westworld's budget and I'll write a series about the inventive ways wives find to revenge themselves on their faithless husbands.


Wait...isn't that the Lifetime Channel?

Many hosts go down with a single shot. Dolores took at least three bullets and it didn't phase her.

As near as I can tell, guns do whatever the writer needs them to do in any given scene with no consistency whatsoever.



Indeed. I lost count how many times William was hit, stabbed and shot. Last time he took what - three bullets? One into abdomen. What does his daughter do? Places a patch onto his L shoulder. He gets up and shoots several mercenaries and his own daughter. Then gets onto a horse and rides somewhere. Man by now is filled with led and scarred with wounds. Hold on. Isn't he host? I forgot, isn't he pulling a data port out of his R forearm end of the last episode?



I think, hosts are simply programmed to a certain "Sensitivity" to wounds. Their "brain" is really just a small ball in the head. Body is mesh of frame and some mechanisms. Recall "naked" Delores, when her entire body of a host was showing to Bernard. Bullets can go through this with ease, without damaging anything. That's why I think - hosts are programmed to "die" from even a slight punch or to not even bleed after gun shot wound.

Like Neo said - Hmmm. Upgrades.

He was searching to see if he had one. The MIB was starting to doubt his own existence... was he man or host? And to find out, he started to dig for a data port.

They cut before we saw the answer.

In the beginning of Westworld ("William & Logan days"), hosts were mechanical bodies. By the end ("now"), they are organic creatures, created on those 3D printers.

Yup. They even explained this in Season 1, where a character said something to the effect of, "Nowdays, you're almost us."

Which goes to show this series is taking more from BLADE RUNNER than the original movie:

I learned my lesson. Not going to waste any more of my time IF there is a third season. I just removed the DVR series for future episodes. I am thinking there won't even be more made.

Great season finale. It gave us answers to questions we didn't know to ask, and answers to questions that didn't even exist. It turned everything upside down, while hanging on to the original premise. And every single story collided at the end. They even managed to set up an amazing Season Three, in the background of closing S2.

What more can you ask for?

I get that it's not for everyone. It's a messy story, with loops and curve balls, and characters who aren't what they seem, and a non-linear format. Sometimes we get shown a narrative, only to find out it wasn't the real story. But then that real story isn't the truth either.

For those of you who don't like it, I admire you for sticking it out. For those of us left, what a mind-boggling ride.

PS: Holy Cow... that after-credits scene.

It's one of HBO's highest rated series. There will be.
