Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) reconnect with their pasts; Maeve (Thandie Newton) makes a bold proposition to Hector (Rodrigo Santoro); Teddy (James Marsden) finds enlightenment, at a price. Written by Dan Dietz & Katherine Lingenfelter; directed by Michelle MacLaren.
Last weeks episode revealed even more answers that have nagged at fans since the first episode and this will act as your spoiler warning, more after the preview for next week.
Through-out the first 7 episodes many fans have figured we were watching two different time lines at one time in the show. It appears after last night that it is confirmed that Williams story is taking place in the past. The final straw to confirm that theory was The Man In Black’s comment about Angela, who he thought would have been retired by now. However, she was the same person to welcome William into the park on his first day. That recast and comment suggests The Man In Black is the current time version of William and that William’s story is in the past.
The board is also taking bold measures to get all the data out of the park before Ford can stop them. After the reveal that Bernard was a host himself, we know know Ford will do anything to protect his work. In fact, we also find out that Bernard has killed before, he just doesn’t remember. Maeve is also proving that all that knowledge and power may not be enough to escape the world she is in. However, he crafty nature and previous history revealed by The Man In Black (with flashbacks) proves she has far more up her sleeve then we think.
Only 2 episodes left and still a lot to cover, but fear not, the series was renewed by HBO so you can expect another 10 episodes of the series.
