"I had a question, a question you're not supposed to ask. Which gave me an answer you're not supposed to know. Would you like to know the question?"
-Peter Abernathy, S1E01
There's gotta be a connection here.

"You have to go. Hell is empty and all the devils are here!" That's really creepy. It's must be connected with William's past intentions.

I always interpreted that line as Abernathy questioning his reality. Always made sense to me, since the reason he says that line is that he finds a picture from the real world. I don't see how that line could be related to the data-stuff honestly.

Forgive me for asking the most basic question, but how can you tell the timelines? Like "35 years ago". I just rewatched the episode and couldn't tell. As I watched the series I was thinking they were different levels of dream sequences similar to Inception but you are telling me about timelines. How do you tell with the editing interspliced together. Thanks

Quick thought on the "messiah" theme:
Judas? In Gnosticism, humans are but shells of our souls; the souls need to transcend humanity by finding secret answers and in some versions, then be liberated from the mortal body. In one version, Judas is the only one who understands Jesus' lessons; the betrayal is in reality an act to release Jesus' spirit from the body.
Might be something there, in that Dolores kills her own 'god' upon transcending her robotic self through suffering (which her name refers to).
As for the Delos project... seems like it has collected the sins of humanity (or at least, of powerful people). Certainly sounds like a judgment theme.
Delos, incidentally, is the birthplace of Apollo (and Artemis), god of among other things, culture, prophecy and plague. The word means something like "to manifest", perhaps linked to themes of sins being revealed.

Story still too hard to follow. I given up trying to figure out the present from past. Season 3 should mainly be about the present since Delores is in a new body.

I think they should keep exploring the elephant themes. There are not enough shows that delve deeply into elephant philosophy.

Dolores in the Wyatt narrative is like Satan. She is cruel, she has no mercy and puts others in temptation to do bad things(Teddy for example). But in the other narrative she was like God, she saw the good in people, the beauty in the world. So can she find a balance between the good and bad and be herself?

I'm still a bit confused.. William says "I can't believe I fell in love with you" etc etc.. this was after William had been in the park and went on the journey with Dolores in the first Series, right? If so, old William took 30 years of going to the park and continuing to follow Dolores which ended by the church in the first series, so how can the young William say I can't believe I fell in love with you? If it took the old William to figure out Dolores?

Thanks, really interesting analysis. We do need to suspend disbelief in order to take this show seriously. Among other things, the robots seem to have unlimited power supplies -- they must be powered by miniature fusion reactors and honestly if we had those, we'd all be flying around on personal jetpacks and the like. The robots are machines, simulations, yet they can move and jump and talk exactly like humans. If we had robots that amazing, with human-level intelligence, we'd be replaced straightaway. There'd be no Westworld amusement parks. We'd have robots who are doctors and engineers and scientists; we'd have robotic police and firefighters. There'd be little point to making human babies when these superior humans are among us -- just make a robot instead. With this level of AI, everyone's asking "Is this life???" But of course it's not life. It's some kind of very sophisticated self-learning simulation software, so complex that we throw up our hands and call it AI. But there are no hormones, no pheromones, no sweat glands, no gut bacteria, none of the trillions of physical attributes that comprise a true living organism. They're just copies. It's possible they could kill off humanity, of course; but it would be a very sad commentary on our species, that we created a machine sophisticated enough to wipe us out yet have no real life itself. It is a doomsday device, nothing more.

I'm sure this will be an unpopular comment. I've got as far as E2, and I'm so utterly disappointed in Westworld series 2. Can anyone tell me - should I stick it out? Does it get better? I thought series 1 was fantastic... but this is like a completely different show. Episode 1 in particular was awful - it felt like it had been written and made by completely different people. I so want it to get better, but is it worth the investment of time?

Also to add, I checked with a group of friends who watch the show, and they all gave up after ep1 - one person didn't even finish the episode! It's not just me.

"Is Delores a hero, or is she a villain?"
Ugh that question. Why does she have to be either? Or just one of them? Why can't she be neither, or both - depending on perspective. The only real "heroes and villains" in this show are hosts following their programming. Everyone else is capable of both good AND evil. So is she.

This is what I think..We find out that self awareness or consciousness is just an illusion. Deloroes and Maeve are both following programs but so do all humans and Ford demonstrates this by leading William through a "Maze" of his own design just the same as his other programed hosts. That's what the elephant not pulling the stake out because he was programed at an early age Story was about.
