Ok, so let’s talk about this new HBO masterpiece. I want to talk about so many things, but since I just can’t organize my thoughts, I’ll just start talking about the latest episode, Trompe L’Oeil.
Omg, that ending, Dr. Ford is truly a terrifying human (or Host?), to think that he would do such an awful thing to Theresa. The fact that Bernard being in a relationship with her was all part of Ford’s plan, it makes you realize what a sociopath he is and that brings so many questions. Who is a Host and who isn’t? Is he going to replace Theresa with another host similar to her? Are other Hosts just robot clones of people who died? So many I tell ya!
There is this theory out there saying that Bernard is actually a copy of Arnold and that the true Arnold (Bernard) was the one who kept having secret meetings with Dolores in the past and that’s how he got interested in the concept of Hosts having consciousness.
So here’s my theory, I actually think that Ford is the original Host created by Arnold. Why do I think he’s a Host? Well, because of how much power and intelligence he has. Through the series I have noticed that he knows so much about everything that is happening in the park and inside the building and yet, we haven’t seen how he has done it. He just walks around and mysteriously knows everything, I think he has deeply infiltrated the system. Plus, the Man in Black was actually wondering what would happen if he cuts Ford open and then he was talking about finding something “true” (I think he was implying that Ford is fake). But yes, I think Ford’s plan is to prepare his Hosts for the outside world, to replace humans. Maybe that’s why Arnold wanted to destroy Westworld so badly, because he knew of Ford’s plan. But again, that’s my theory and I know there’s some stuff that doesn’t make sense.
I also wanted to talk about something that I noticed on Theresa’s last moments and it was how she put her hands on her hips like Bernard told her to, to show Ford that she is confident and has control and for me, that was just heartbreaking. She tries to maintain control over the situation, but her life was already on Ford’s hands and just seeing her realize that she was going to be killed by her lover was just really tragic, amazing acting indeed.
So, let’s talk about it!!
