The Stray Analysis
Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have a podcast for you…
Down and down the rabbit hole we go! This episode had all of us saying “Dear dear how queer everything is..” even before we were handed a copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Elsie and Stubbs chase after a stray run away host who for some reason decided to take a walk to gaze at the starts but gets trapped 127 hours style in a crevice. Dolores and Teddy get front billing this week as they explore their relationship and themselves in more detail.
Teddy receives an origin story for his guilt, a gruesome one at that, about his old regiment leader Wyatt. Crazy now after listening to voices in his head, Wyatt leads his group of bandits that wear the bones and skins of the things they kill. Dolores however has a desire for something unexpected, a romantic getaway with Teddy. Unfortunately for her, that trip is not in this part of the narrative. Elsewhere Ford continues tinkering with the hosts to prep his upcoming narrative, while we learn a deeper side to Benard and what his “drives” are motivated by. William and Logan have an unexpected encounter of their own both in town, and out in the fields nearby. We attempt to make sense of all the voices in our heads, or is that just Arnold playing tricks again.
The park is open, so come on in and have a drink on us!

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.
