Aja:All of this assumes that Westworld is interested in feeding me straightforward narrative developments, which I’m not sure it’s ever been. Am I watching the show the wrong way? Is the show gaslighting me? Help!
Todd: This is one of those things I’ve been asking myself the deeper we get into Westworld season two: If the show isn’t trying to be a conventional TV narrative, should I be dinging it for failing to engage me on the same level as one? And I honestly don’t know.
The Man in Black is a central player, for sure, but I agree that it must be hard to keep track of your storyline among all the other characters on the show.

Feels like everyone got a different name for it, but they're all bound for the same destination. Doesn't matter what you call it, I know what we're going to find there. An old friend was foolish enough to show me long ago. And it's not a place it's a weapon. And I'm going to use it to destroy them.
