Be honest: Most of us missed the story of the second season of the Westworld for the people who have watched it at all. It is great to look back on what has happened so far as we go into season three— but only the important things. Everything else does not look to us, either.
In a Western theme-park for the rich and powerful, Westworld stars Evan Rachel Wood and Dolores, a robot companion, based on a book by Michael Crichton with the same name. She and her friends are tired of being plays for violent entertainment and for violent ends, so they are executing a revolt— started by the author, Robert Ford. The second season deals primarily with the revolt, with Dolores ‘ war in the real world possibly taking place in the next three seasons.
In its second season West World’s 10 biggest questions and what we know about the Westworld have finished with unanswered mysteries. Here are all the key issues you could have for season two of Westworld, including who’s really living, what were all about Marseille and Door and how many more times we’ve seen so far. Here are all the main questions. Many people might think it is important to note other information, free to add to the comments.
1. Who is Dolores actually?
Dolores Abernathy was the first robot for the Argos Program and is Westworld’s oldest active host. Arnold thought she had become conscious of it and tried it over and over again to help her develop. When Arnold figured out that he had made a mistake in making the hosts, he introduced a dangerous plan, the Dolores known as “Wyatt,” that would cause her to destroy every host in the first park and herself. Upon Ford’s assassination, the Wyatt machine in Dolores was reactivated during the Westworld and other parks as part of his robot revolution.
Dolores is now a mixture of its initial identity and Wyatt’s, with human hate and a desire to put an end to the abuses directed at their people. Within Westworld, her original body has been killed and abandoned, but in a host version she manages to escape the Delos Destinations Board of Managing Directors, Charlotte Hale. It seems that the reign of terror of the Deathbringer just began.
2. what is the total number of parks?
Delos Destinations have six total parks and up until now we have been to three. Of course, the park that all started is Westworld. In second season, the robot animal hunt reserve in India was created by Shōgun World, an influenced, more brutal Westworld clone from Edo-period feudal Japan. In season 3, we are expected to visit a new park in World War II Europe, probably called WarWorld.
3. How long have we been in so far?
If Westworld’s first time in season was a toe dive in several concurrent periods, then the second season was a full belly flop. In reality, one of the main reasons that some people stopped watching in season two was the jumbled schedule.
We have seen the series last nearly four decades from now on, with one key exception. The concept of robot hosts that were designed by Ford and Arnold was first introduced by Logan in 2015. The story goes across 2052, when the robot rebellion took place. In the meantime, we went through the tales of Dolores, William, Ford and Westworld in general every decade. In Season 2 a post-credit sequence was also performed, which was portrayed by the deterioration of the building, at an undisclosed point in the future.
4. What is the Maze?
Most of a time, the man in Black goes to the heart of the maze, an ever-changing mystery portrayed in the Park as a metaphor. The toy of the boy Arnold gave to his dying son was nothing more than the sign. But what it meant was much, much better. It was not for the Man in Black or any human being in the park because it was a device made by robotics to obtain energy.
We were met with Akecheta, the native American host played by Zahn McClarnon, in the two episode “Kiksuya” in the season. He was the first to break his loop and become alive in the park, while Arnold invested all his attention on Dolores, the first fully thinking robot was all the way under his nose. Upon finding Westworld reality (when he lost his love and Khana), Akecheta used the robot sign he created, upon Arnold had been murdered, for decades to distribute the term among the Ghost People. The Tribe members would symbolize themselves and the world around them, determined to keep the reality alive while people died.
5. What is the Door?
Many audiences felt that the door was a symbol of the revolt of the hosts toward civilization, but the reality was much literal. The door was the gateway of a place called the Sublime, or Valley Beyond or Robot Paradise. Robert Ford created the digital world to avoid the evils of the real world and live in harmony. When accessed, their memory cores would be wiped clean, which would preclude hosts from being returned to the Internet.
Dolores was against the hosts who were using it, claimed that the people who had made it were another “false promise,” and wanted to make it happen. Fortunately, at least 1/3 of the hosts in the west–including Akecheta and Kohana–had succeeded in doing so in advance. Dolores consequently sent its contents to a secret location to protect the hosts.
6. Did Maeve find her daughter?
Sure, with another host that would be her mother she stayed. Okay. Two final stages in season were marked by the passage of Maeve’s daughter and mother and her surrogate mother into the Sublime / Valley. Maeve stayed behind to buy time for them, so she lost herself. Like Dolores, Maeve didn’t have any interest in vengeance on mankind. Though it can monitor hosts from a distance and use it for itself, its ideology is to make its own way and give other hosts the right to do the same.
7. What about Bernard? What about Bernard?
Plenty! Much! The host produced by the former partner of Robert Ford, Arnold Weber, was in a mess. For many of seasons 2 the warped point of view of Bernard serves for the untrustworthy narrator as the ultimate example. This is because Delos ‘ security forces have purposely scratched his recollections of the two last decades, simply because they have not been able to obtain evidence on what he has recently done to protect Dolores and the hosts.
To explain the important things: after Dolores had been fired, he remembered that he actually needed her and brought her back in order to prevent her from cutting the connection to the Sublime and puting her control unit into the body of Charlotte Hale. But he also hid from Peter Abernathy the control unit (Dolores ‘ father) which housed the Sublime and the whole structure of the Forge to ensure it couldn’t be noticed by both Dolores and Delos. Dolores (as Hale), finally succeeded in getting Abernathy out of Bernard’s house, but oddly she decided to protect the visitors. She killed him then.
It is also important to note that Bernard kept seeing hallucinations of Ford throughout the season and felt that he was under his influence. It turns out, however, that it was only the inner monolog of Bernard who represented himself in that Ford, his mentor and friend, something Ford suggested was a major step to help hosts gain faith. So Bernard had at last gained free will.
8. What is Westworld’s true goal?
The real objective of James Delos and all Delos Destinations parks for Westworld was to digitize the human consciousness to establish immortality, allowing the rich an opportunity to live indefinitely in robot bodies. Bear in mind: It’s not like altered carbon, which provided a “chain” that saved people’s minds on a computer. The Westworld, then, used their own memories to mimic everyone’s consciousness. Instead of carving, think of copy-paste.
We did so by gathering secretly information about each tourist in the park and putting high-tech brain scans on their cowboy hats–capturing not only the experiences of the visitors, but also what we were feeling about what happened. The theory was, because they were in a place free of judgement and repercussions, that the parks were humans most real. James Delos was the initial focus, but could not maintain “faithfulness,” so that his picture host was abandoned to rot.
During the finals of the season Dolores inundated the Forge, housing all the data of the park’s visitors, to ruin it. Nevertheless, the technologies and knowledge still remain based on the post-credits (described below) scene and what we witnessed in season 3.
9. Is the guy a host for Black?
Not definitely. It’s still still in the rain, but all the signs suggest that William is human — in a way. The after credit scene of second season, taking place in the near future, shows William’s Daughter’s robotic version, Emily, testing his “faithfulness” in the Man in Black. Moreover, several scenes of second season appeared to be somewhat unrelenting, indicating that they could not have originated from the robot revolt but instead took place at another time.
10. How did everybody go for season 2?
Dolores: The two seasons conclude with Dolores leaving Westworld dressed as a Charlotte with five control units which allegedly contain other hosts. Dolores: We see her then, presumably in real life, in her own body training Bernard in her preparation for the next level.
Bernard: Perhaps Dolores assassinated him, but it was only tentative. They need one another, after all. Dolores took him into the modern world and made him a new body image.
