“Westworld” Episode 7’s Telegraph has more laughs per minute than anything we’ve done this season. Listeners wrote and called in about Maeve’s story arc, the real Dolores Prime, illogical fight scenes, EMPs, passed pawns, and French accents. You guys really can’t let go of the accents. In this mailbag edition of Shat on TV, we also cover “Neuromancer,” exploding arms, minority roles in 2052, and whether Dolores and Maeve are just messing with each other. Also, Caleb takes center stage as Shat Nation points out similarities to Teddy and other clues to his purpose.

Westworld Season, 3, Episode 7, revealed a massive clue to Caleb’s true identity. If you missed it, you aren’t alone. If you want to know what it is, you’ll have to listen. This week’s Deep Dive covers Solomon’s definition of an outlier, robo smelling salts, super-crappy targeting systems, EMP blasts, Ashley’s Mortal Kombat tournament, and a long list of fascinating callbacks to previous episodes and seasons. “Passed Pawn” also led us to question which podcast host has the best Shat voice, why Maeve is getting the short end of the stick, and how to play chess like a Schlafly.
We wanted the scoop on Caleb Nichols’ background, and boy did we get it. Westworld Season 3, Episode 7, delivered detailed history, gave Solomon a voice, revealed the dark secrets behind Serac’s grand plan, and gave us a bloody showdown for good measure. Our instant-reaction episode also includes the Three Stooges Road Trip, security personnel shortages, and one very lonely AI. Listen now and subscribe to catch our Deep Dive on Tuesday.
