Virtù e Fortuna
Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have a reunion for you…
Prepare to have your mind blown as Westworld introduces a brand new park, with immediate consequences. The Raj is here, and Aaron and Troy are back to break down what this latest addition means in the scope of Delos lore. We also get back in the loop this week as we learn more about Bernard and Charlotte’s quest to hunt down the elusive Peter Abernathy. Maeve’s journey guides her to a reunion of violent delights deep within the mesa. Lastly, we take a long look at Dolores. Is she the heroine we had come to believe she was? Or has Wyatt finally come home?
The park is open. Let’s head on in.

Virtù e Fortuna in Pictures
Here are a few of our favorite scenes from this week’s episode.
Breaking The Code
It’s all in the closed captioning this week and it’s up to you to wonder if these captures are real or fake. One shows us that coordinates of the Location of Westworld thanks to a European subtitle. The second gives us insight into what the Ghost nation warrior was saying to Hector. Do you think these are real or photoshopped? You tell us.
If you do not believe the Ghost nation dialouge is legit… well then this just might cheer you up.
The Raj also has debuted on the Delos Destinations website which also has a back door access to restore the system where we get to see a schematic for the CR4-DL aka “Cradle“. What is however beats the heck out of us. Plus Aeden is back playing tricks again so take some time to ask Aeden some questions about the new parks or plotlines in Season 2.
We also dig into the three big theories which are that Grace is the daughter of Theresa Cullen. The ghost nation warriors are actually protecting the humans instead of killing them because they are being controlled by Elsie. Finally the big one which is that this brain CPU removal thing was the answer right in front of us. Two weeks into the latest narrative Journey Into Night, Teddy is actually inside Bernard’s body. Yes Bernard’s body but Teddy’s brain. Let that compute a bit and check back next week.

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.
