Dissonance Theory Analysis
Welcome to Beyond Westworld, and boy do we have a podcast for you…
This week more than just Dolores is questioning the nature of her reality. Maeve is seeing flashes before her eyes, too bad for her that Hector Escatan of all people ended up being her constant. Meanwhile Dolores continues her time with Will and Logan as they continue the search for an elusive bounty hunter. They stop off for a spell in Las Mudas, where Dolores has a few flashes of her own. The Man in Black returns on his quest for the entrance to the maze but instead runs into a bathing Armistice with an interesting tattoo. Elsewhere Ford is destroying the parks blue agave plantation to make way for his new narrative regardless of what Cullen or the board thinks.
This week, Aaron and Troy experience a bit cognitive dissonance of their own as they break down “Dissonance Theory”, the latest mind-bender of an episode from HBO’s latest revelation, Westworld.
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.
