Westworld season 1 finale
There are lots of articles on the web by people who have been paying closer attention than me and think they understand what happened, but I’m not sure it really made any sense.
Supposedly Ford agreed with dead Arnold’s believe that the robots hat sentience and therefore should be free and not the playthings of humans. But it seems that everything the robots did in this episode was actually a “narrative” programmed by Ford, so I don’t see the sentience.
The part that most disappointed me was when Maeve got out of the train. I thought I was finally going to find out what was beyond Westworld (which we now know is big enough in area to include an ocean), but that rug was pulled out from under me.
I have a theory I haven’t seen anywhere else, which is that we the people of planet Earth are actually Westworld, or rather what Westworld eventually becomes. We are all robots who think we are human. The real humans live on some other planet.
