Are you ready for Westworld season 3 episode 5? There is a new episode coming up on HBO next week, and this one may be about something simple … or not. The synopsis wants you to at least believe that there’s something simple here:
Dolores and Bernard explores the world outside the park.
That’s what we have in advance, but you know that it’s going to be so much more complicated than that. This season has been a reinvention of the world beyond, and an understanding of precisely all of the various ins and outs that exist within it. There will be heartbreak, and we expect some of the new characters who we’re just getting to meet are still going to find a way to step up.
Also, we’re at the halfway point in this season … which we saw in a little more of a depressing way than as a cry for victory. (We only have eight episodes this season, down versus the typical eight that HBO releases.) There really isn’t that much more of an opportunity for new episodes now and with that, we have to cherish every single one and uncurl them slowly in our head.
Through what is left, though, we imagine that some of the central themes of the series will still remain — identity, purpose, and also humanity. Ironic that it rings so loud on a show that relies so much on the concept of automation.
