‘Westworld’ 1.08 “Trace Decay” Review

Previous1 of 6

decay

With only two episodes left, Westworld is closing with some real momentum. It was on display in full in tonight’s eighth episode “Trace Decay,” which admirably dealt with the twist at the end of last week’s episode “Trompe L’Oeil,” making the big William=MiB fan theory either obvious or the grandest red herring ever, and furthering Maeve’s nascent robot rebellion. We also got more Man in Black backstory, after the self-styled supervillain was absent for an episode.
