Oh, hell yeah. That was great. This episode broke open the mystery and added some needed layers. Among the best eps of the series.

I welcome the "Lost-ish" vibe of the season so far.

Definitely. The "Guy in a Solitary Bunker Riding and Exercise Bike to Oldies on Vinyl" couldn't have been more obvious. I still loved it.

I haven't read much on reddit, so maybe this is obvious, but I think the contents of Abernathy's head are the engrams needed to clone William. It's telling that Delos Special Forces are in the park and no one is trying to find the owner of the company.

Another good one last night.

I was damn hyped at the Shogun World analogues. I loved all of it. So much that the hops back to Westworld were kind of disappointing.

What's causing the brain-leak damage to the hosts? Is it the lack of regular maintenance or was there an event that broke it?

Pretty good one. Not as good as last week, but that's an insanely high bar.

Shogun World did not disappoint. What did disappoint was that I could tell the Maeve-plotline scene was ending and I knew we'd be checking in on a different subplot, and I thought, 'Oh cool, what's going on with Bernard?' and then it was Delores. Ugh. I'm starting to Really Not Care about Delores and her storyline and that's not good for long-term enjoyment of the show. I feel like they case Evan Rachel Wood because she could really pull off the season 1 "Farmgirl-with-Hidden-Depths" character, but now she's being asked to be Khaleesi and she just can't pull it off.

Could have used much less of that terrible sex scene. It was like a parody. Maybe it was supposed to be evocative of a western-themed Harlequin Romance novel? It was painfully bad.

I really want to comment on this thread but I'm not caught up yet. Really liking this season so far.

Lots of cool sh*t in the finale last night. I had some trouble getting my head around it.

This Vanity Fair article does an okay job of sorting some of it out: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/20 ... -time-jump

I'm going to need to hop into the subreddit to explain some of the more squirrely bits.

I remembered recently that I never went back and finished this series. Jumped back in on the Indian guy storyline, then watched the finale a few days later.

Spoiler:
I loved Season 1, season 2 didn't really live up to the standard though. There's only so many times, in so many languages, I can hear someone bloviate and prattle in circular language about I think therefore I am and free will and whatever else. And I normally love that sh*t, but they could have cut it by 2 or 3 episodes. That being said I really liked the ending, when they finally got to it.

As a show I liked it, as a Terminator prequel, it was great.

Good points. I loved Season 1 and it built a lot of goodwill with me. I also got invested in the world. So while S2 was objectively not as compelling, I still loved it because I'm into it.

There was a ton of cool visual sh*t in Season 2.

I loved the analogues in Shogun World. You could see where that storyline was headed and it was still awesome.

Is season 3 this year?

Not yet announced.

I hope Damon Lindelof's Watchmen is good in the meantime.
