Westworld Episode 10 Summary:
“The Passenger” Maeve manages to escape the Mesa and reunite with her group, and they, Bernard, Dolores, Akecheta, William, and Delos all begin to converge on the Valley. Dolores and Bernard enter first and find the Forge, a more advanced version of the Cradle. Dolores reads some of the guest data as the Forge opens the “Door” for Akecheta and his people to upload their minds into the Forge. Bernard kills Dolores to prevent her from destroying the Forge and flees with Elsie back to the Mesa. Maeve and her group sacrifice themselves holding off Delos forces to ensure Aketcehta and Maeve’s daughter escape to the Forge. Charlotte murders Elsie to keep her quiet, convincing Bernard to build a host version of Charlotte with Dolores’ mind. Dolores kills and replaces Charlotte while Bernard scrambles his own memories. In the present, Dolores kills Strand and Bernard while transferring the host minds in the Forge to a safer location. She then escapes back to the mainland where she rebuilds Bernard, knowing that he will oppose her plan to destroy humanity and hoping their resulting conflict will ensure the survival of the hosts. In a post-credits scene, William finds himself in a simulation with Emily, who is testing him for “fidelity”.
