Westworld Episode 3 Review: “Virtù e Fortuna”

Episode 3 of Westworld Season 2 wasn’t filler. “Virtu e Fortuna” is a vital link, the connective tissue that binds the bones Episode 1 with the muscle of Episode 2.

This Westworld Deep Dive explores:

  • Who is the woman in The Raj?
  • What is Ghost Nation’s true purpose?
  • Do Dr. Ford and Bernard share a backstory?
  • What did Dolores accomplish at Fort Forlorn Hope?
  • And why did she intentionally slaughter her army?

Plus, Gene fits all of Bernard’s Season 2 scenes into a linear story and finds the massive blind spot in it all.

Westworld Episode 3 Summary:
“Virtù e Fortuna” Charlotte and Bernard track down the decommissioned Peter Abernathy only to be caught by the Confederados and separated, with Charlotte regrouping with a Delos security team. Dolores, who has secured support from the Confederados’ leader Major Craddock, discovers that Peter is malfunctioning and orders Bernard to find the problem. In doing so, he learns that Peter is being tracked by an unknown entity. Dolores and her allies proceed to battle the security team, which Charlotte uses as a distraction to abduct Peter. Dolores wins the battle by sacrificing most of the Confederados. Maeve, Hector, and Lee reunite with Armistice, Felix, and Sylvester after an attack orchestrated by Ghost Nation hosts forces them to return to the underground levels. The party reenters the park only for a samurai host to charge at them. Elsewhere, a guest at a British Raj-themed park flees rogue hosts and escapes into Westworld, where she is surrounded by Ghost Nation hosts.
