The Most Burning Questions We Have After the ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Premiere
“Journey Into Night” helped set up season two’s overarching mission. Fair Warning: This post contains a thorough de-bugging of tonight’s opening chapter. If you haven’t seen it yet, make like Peter Abernathy and disappear.
What is “Journey Into Night?”
Long Day’s Journey into Night is Eugene O’Neill’s magnum opus, and it’s not a stretch to believe that the showrunners used it as a model for Westworld. The two projects also appear to be thematically and structurally similar.
What was Arnold really afraid of?
Despite his reservations, he provides Dolores with the tools she needs to destroy the early Westworld model, which was destroyed in a long-ago bloodbath.
What the hell happened in the missing two weeks?
Bernard is suffering from critical corruption, and while a quick injection of host fluid appears to temporarily prevent complete shutdown on the night of the attack, we see his hand begin to tremor again in the present, which is also a clever way of upping the stakes in his storyline.
Dolores’ host father had 35 years of data uploaded to him.
Why is Delos/Westworld harvesting guest DNA and experiences?
Nolan cites Google and Facebook as real-world examples that can be linked to the series, which could explain why Delos is so eager to get its hands on Abernathy. The immediate benefits are obvious: corporate espionage, blackmail, and valuable information.
What is The Door?
This season of “Westworld” appears to be built around the Door, a literal door out of Westworld that will lead the hosts into civilization, and The Man in Black’s journey could be his journey back into the man he once was.
Other Westworld Season 2 Premiere Thoughts:
The character wants to go to much bigger quarries than this one, but how does she get there?
How do real people get into Westworld?
The guests take a train there, a real train that they board at Delos headquarters. Let’s start at the beginning: a wealthy guest books a tour of WestWorld (or possibly another Delos park) and travels by train to Delos’ main headquarters.
How much does a trip to Westworld cost?
Guests pay more than $40,000 per day to visit Westworld, and approximately four million people visit the park each year.
What was the point of the maze in Westworld?
The toy maze represents the labyrinthine journey to consciousness, which robots can gain by traveling inward, through memory, improvisation, and eventually self-awareness, as Westworld co-creator Arnold (Jeffrey Wright) explains to Dolores 35 years before the events of Westworld.
What are the 6 worlds in Westworld?
Park 1, Westworld; Park 2, Shogunworld; Park 3, Warworld; and Park 6, The Raj are the parks that we currently know about. The only park that u201cWestworldu201d viewers actually got to see in Season 1 was Westworld, though Shogunworld was teased somewhat in the finale.
Is Bernard really Arnold in Westworld?
Arnold Weber, also known as the Creator, is a fictional character who appears in HBO’s Westworld. After Weber’s death, Ford created Bernard in his likeness.
Is Caleb human in Westworld?
Caleb is human, despite all the hype and theories. He was not replaced with a host after being killed on an army mission, and neither Delos nor Dolores or anyone else built him.
How long can you stay in Westworld?
The minimum stay is two weeks, with one week in the park and one week at the Mesa Resort to unwind. The maximum stay is four weeks.
Can guests hurt each other in Westworld?
So, technically, yes. Not with a gun, because guns don’t work on humans, but with a knife or their bare hands. The qualifier is that the hosts are programmed with a “Good Samaritan” complex, which means they will intervene and do whatever it takes to keep the guests from killing each other.
What year is Westworld set in?
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Westworld fans have deduced that the show’s current events take place in the year 2052.
How did Dolores solve the maze?
When she resurrects the Maze, he becomes enraged and orders her to “unlock” it, but she refuses, explaining that it wasn’t meant for him. Ford later tells Dolores that the Maze was a test of empathy and imagination, which she solved after Arnold updated the Reveries.
What does the man in black want in Westworld?
The Man in Black claims to have been visiting Westworld for over three decades and wishes to explore the park’s deeper levels, which he believes are hidden.
What is the game in Westworld?
The first full-fledged VR game set in the Westworld universe created by showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, Westworld Awakening is a unique product.
Why is Westworld rated MA?
Shootings, stabbings, throat slittings, and torture are common examples of graphic violence; however, because robots bleed and appear to be in pain, as well as look and act like “real” humans, this distinction is largely irrelevant.
What is the size of Westworld?
Okay, so Nolan doesn’t confirm Westworld’s location, but he does reveal one interesting fact: the park is 500 square miles in size, which is massive.
What’s wrong with Jim in Westworld?
James Delos was known to be dying of an unknown fatal illness (cancer was suggested), and he wanted to transfer his consciousness into a host before dying in order to achieve immortality. James Delos is presumed permanently deceased in all forms.
