Westworld Episode 4 Instant Take: The Mother of Exiles

All you pearl-divers got your answer as “Westworld” Season 3, Episode 4 revealed more of Dolores’ master plan, kicked up the violence, and turned on the sex appeal.

Gene was left wondering, “Why Caleb?” Ashley raised an eyebrow at how Bernard and Stubbs knew so much, and Big D scribbled down a timeline that would make Carrie Matheson proud.

The Shat Crew also discusses perhaps the goofiest “Westworld” moment of 2020 and learns to accept the show on its own terms.

    Westworld, like Lost, is a mystery-box TV production that invites viewers to overanalyze, but ultimately it doesn’t warrant that level of investment.

    More importantly, I realized that there is no longer a dramatic hook that keeps me enticed; my enthusiasm for the characters has faded. I continued to watch the show after it peaked due to sunk cost fallacy. The show hasn’t dropped off the way Game of Thrones did, but I no longer find it compelling.
