Westworld Season 2 has been surprisingly slow so far, compared with Season 1. Bernard has been piecing events together, while Dolores is making her way to The Valley Beyond. In Season 2, Episode 4, "The Riddle of the Sphinx," Bernard investigated a secret lab with Elsie (who's alive--yay!) and last week's mystery woman turned out to be William's daughter, Emily. But let's not gloss over the extraordinary revelation: Delos, under William's guidance, has been trying to recreate actual people, memories, tics, and all, as android hosts.Or, more specifically, they've been making a person. Jim Delos died decades earlier than the show's present, but some version of him--an endless succession of twisted, twitching golems--has been alive in a secret lab under Westworld for all the intervening years. William has been working for 30 years to perfect the technology to make a being who's more than a host, but less than a person. And he failed.Undoubtedly this is William's "greatest mistake," as he … [Read more...] about Westworld Season 2, Episode 4 Review: Westworld’s “True Purpose” Revealed?

Is Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) coming back as a Host in Westworld season 2? That was the question on everybody’s lips ahead of the season premiere, and chatter has only intensified after Westworld season 2, episode 4 - The Riddle of the Sphinx. The ‘Ford as a Host’ theory has been given new life after the events of this new episode, which gives an insight into the secret research done on James Delos. See, William (the Man in Black) has been working on a way to infuse human consciousness - or at least a flawless imitation of that consciousness - into a Host body, and his test subject for the work is his former boss, James Delos. We see that it’s essentially possible for a dead human to continue living their life as a Host. Sort of.Does this mean we could see a Host version of Ford? Has Anthony Hopkins secretly filmed a handful of episodes on his former show? Absolutely. We see in episode 4 that Bernard has - at some point - printed off a memory ball, used for … [Read more...] about The big question we have after watching Westworld season 2, episode 4
Despite all the zombie bites, eerie visions, and, yes, that bloody helicopter, The Walking Dead season 8 seems to reach out and grab that extra little bit of quality when it quietens down. Case in point: dearly departed Carl and his letters to both Negan and his dad, Rick. We’ve already seen what Carl wrote to Negan, but what about his father? You can wait until next week or, if you like, find out right now. How about that?At the end of The Walking Dead season 8, episode 14, Rick finally decided to read Carl’s final message, one that he has been putting off for so long. I’m guessing he wishes he hadn’t. It’s a real tear-jerker. The scenes, from the opening minutes of episode 15, is above and soon to be available on the AMC site for US users, with the full, agonising transcript available below. Be warned: it’s super long.I remember my 8th birthday at the KCC with that giant cake and Aunt Evie showing up on leave surprising all of us. I remember Mom. I … [Read more...] about Read Carl’s full (heartbreaking) letter to Rick from The Walking Dead season 8 episode 15
A Rick-less episode of The Walking Dead is, conventionally, an eventless episode of The Walking Dead, and Dead or Alive Or, the 11th chapter to season 8, was no exception. It had its moments, but this episode felt more like a set up for what’s to come than a climax to what’s already happened, much to the disappointment of many viewers. But hey, seeing as the show’s been on a notable high since its mid-season break, I’m less annoyed about this lack of action than usual, and many of the questions I’m left with after watching episode 11 could have satisfying payoffs if AMC manages to pursue them effectively. Read on below if you don’t mind major spoilers for The Walking Dead season 8 so far, and see if you and I are asking the same things about Gabriel, Negan, and the rest of Atlanta’s survivors now that this week’s episode has aired.

This was one of those The Walking Dead season 8 episodes. The kind that, unless you’re really invested in a handful of characters, chances are you’re not going to care all that much. This week’s episode 11 saw Gabriel battle against blindness, Negan concoct a new plan which sorta contradicts the entire series, and yet more people reacting to Carl’s death. Talking of reactions – here’s what the fine folk of the internet thought about it. The eyes have it Poor Gabriel. He’s had a rough run. If it’s not cowardly condemning others to death through inaction, it’s suffering from an unspecified illness and turning blind in the process. Heck, even his faith to God was tested this week. Real talk though, I actually liked all of the Gabriel scenes. It felt like old-school The Walking Dead in the best possible way. The Good Doctor What is it with The Walking Dead and killing off doctors? I’ve barely had time to learn this guy’s … [Read more...] about ‘Can you just end the series already?’ – The internet reacts to The Walking Dead season 8, episode 11
