Fans got a real treat Sunday night with the third episode of the second season of “Westworld.”
I dont know about all of you guys, but I couldnt get enough of how lit this episode was. Everything from start to finish was incredible.
WARNING: THERE ARE GOING TO BE SPOILERS BELOW. DO NOT KEEP READING IF YOU HAVENT FINISHED WATCHING AND ARENT CAUGHT UP.
We didnt just get introduced to one new park last night. We got to see two. We got to see Raj World in India to start the episode, and then we finally got to see Shogun World at the very end with Maeve and Hector. Thats what I like to call a treat for the fans, and neither disappointed at all.
In fact, Shogun World was only on screen for a couple seconds, but we already got to see some absolute terror. I think its safe to say that the fans should be more than amped.

There were two other key takeaways. The first is that we now know for sure that Teddy is not totally onboard with Dolores slaughter plan. He refused to execute the Confederate soldiers and instead let them flee. Thats not going to sit well with the boss lady. Its almost like theyre setting for a Teddy-Dolores showdown, despite the fact hes programmed to protect her. She got woke and started killing humans. Hes getting woke too. Does that mean hell kill Dolores? Only time will tell, but I have a very strong belief these two will split off at some point.
The second point is obvious: namely, that everybody is Team Maeve if it comes down to a battle between her and Dolores, which at this point seems more than likely. Maeve is an absolute badass. Dolores is out here causing way too much carnage, and Im not sure Im really seeing a justification for all of it. Maeve, on the other hand, is driven by love and the need to find her daughter. Dolores is driven by revenge. Its a fun contrast.

Finally, these Ghost Nation indians look awesome. I have no idea what we should expect out of them, but their role looks terrifyingly important. Did someone order up a big time battle between cowboys and Indians? Because it looks like thats exactly whats coming down the pipe.
“Westworld” continues to be one of the greatest television accomplishments in my lifetime, and Ill be here for every last second of it.
