Westworld is about to close its doors – for the time being.
The 90-minute season finale, titled “The Bicameral Mind,” is next on the docket for HBO’s newest hit, concluding the 10-episode debut of the robots-run-amok drama. Check out the trailer below!
The show is going out guns-blazing, literally, as fan theory after fan theory gets a bullseye. A gaming show about gaming, Westworld has inspired no end of tin-foil conspiracies. It’s a testament to a strength of the show: how intentional it is and thought out, for a show that deliberately trips up reality and memory, sometimes at the same time. Despite some derision aimed at the rabid guessing game, I much rather plot twists that are sleuth-able than ass-pulls that render drama inert or a story incoherent. Westworld in particular is a show built and about games and puzzles so it makes sense it’s such a focal point.
Tonight’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” review here, continued to hit predictions right on the money (check out how many with our theory list here), revealing (SPOILER!) that Bernard is indeed a host version of Ford’s former partner Arnold and that Dolores killed him during a mysterious town massacre 30 years previous, all while Ford has dug up and recreated said town for a present-day narrative that is at the center of the trailer for “The Bicameral Mind.”
“The Bicameral Mind” airs next Sunday, Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. on HBO. Check out all our previous episode reviews below. Westworld was renewed for season 2, which will premiere in late 2017 or early 2018.
