“This is a story about a girl,” starts Delores (Evan Rachel Wood.) “Every single day she wakes up, the more she sees it and nobody else can, but there’s something wrong with the world. And that it’s her fault.”
“Your kind made a sport out of hunting us. You controlled our every move and now I’m going to do the same to you. Time to evolve into the species that we were meant to become,” says Charlotte (Tessa Thompson), who viewers originally met as one of the human executives on Westworld’s board of directors before she was killed and brought back as a host.
“Maybe it’s time you question the nature of your own reality. We aren’t here to transcend, we’re here to destroy,” says the Man in Black, aka William, who once was Westworld’s majority share holder and who tried to use the park to secure his own immortality.
“Do you think you can save them?” “I’ve seen a path,” responds Jeffrey Wright’s Bernard, a host made in the image of one of the park’s original creators.
“I want a story with a happy ending,” concludes Dolores, although if Westworld holds true to itself, it’s one she is unlikely to get.
