Kiksuya Analysis

Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have an origin story for you…

My heart to your heart, my thoughts to your thoughts. We get a little Westworld mind meld mesh network style this week as Akecheta takes us and Maeve on a journey through the birth of consciousness, and a people known as Ghost Nation. Apparently when Akecheta isn’t busy closing business deals with the Argos initiative or scalping people as the head of Ghost Nation, he is also a weary traveler on a quest to find the love of his life and lead her out of this wrong world and into a new one. We come to find that Akecheta not only achieved consciousness on his own, but managed to survive with his new found awakening for over 9 years. What we are treated to in this episode is an epic love story and how love can show up in many forms but at the end of the day it is the love for the future that will ultimately prevail as a new species is coming out of the darkness and into the light.

The park is open. Let’s head on in.

Breaking The Code

TES was on vacation this week so only new items where an updated map over on the westworld website. Also this great nugget where someone was definitely off of his loop this week:

Do you see the camera man on the left following Maeve? Oh I guess it doesn’t look like anything to you. 😉

About HBO's Westworld

In 1973, celebrated author and filmmaker Michael Crichton released Westworld, his visionary idea of what a theme park could be as human-looking androids fulfilled our every desire. Four decades later, creators Jonathan and Lisa Joy Nolan are taking the concept to the next evolutionary step as Westworld can now be ‘fleshed’ out as a deeper concept that explores the vast array of potential and consequence from such advanced technology. The one-hour drama series is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite can live without limits, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

The cast of the 10-episode series includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, and more.
