Westworld hosts could be origin for Battlestar Galactica

Were the cylons merely hosts from Westworld or the robots used in construction jobs with Caleb? What about the human looking cylons? Did one of them make an Easter egg appearance in season 2 at the party at James Delos’ house?

Halores Requiem

The final episode of the series Que Será, Será sees Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) vanquish host William aka the Man In Black (Ed Harris) before destroying herself in favor of Christina / Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) who gains control for a 'final test' in a 'dangerous game'.

After a bloody battle between human and hosts Charlotte Hale gives control of the game to Christina.

Hale engaged in a gunfight against the Man in Black that ended when Charlotte gained the upper hand by using the gun that was previously planted by Bernard. 💥

Charlotte says she chose to give Christina a chance as she shot William and removed his pearl. She crushed it as she walked leaving a destroyed William behind. 🩸

Charlotte then uploads Christina's pearl into the sublime to allow Dolores to make her own choice.

The portal at the dam is repaired and Christina says good-bye to Teddy after realizing that he is her soul mate. ❤️

Dolores appears and explains to Christina they are reflections of humanity, while Christina vows to find Teddy in the Sublime and to "create" one final game of her own making as Teddy disappears.

Meanwhile at the dam, Charlotte exposes her robotic torso and legs before opening her cranium to remove her orb and crush the pearl with her hand to dust in a final self-sacrificial move, ending her own sentience. 🦾

'Sentient life on Earth has ended.' Christina says in a voice-over amid night views of New York. 🌃 'But some part of it might still be preserved. In another world. My world,' she adds while walking on the street with bodies strewn about from the conflict between hosts and humans.

'There's time for one last game. A dangerous game with the highest of stakes. Survival or extinction. This game ends where it began,' Christina continues as bright billboards illuminate her face.

'In a world like a maze. That tests who we are. That reveals what we are to become,' she adds while taking in a 360-degree view of the city, IF WE OBSERVE THE BILLBOARDS, WE CAN SEE A WOMAN THAT RESEMBLES CHARLOTTE HALE IN HER LAST MOMENTS, she's looking down and she seems sad, which I believe it's a way to honor Charlotte Hale's legacy and ultimate sacrifice. 👁️

A shift occurres and Christina is then transformed back into the Old West-themed park as a fully reintegrated Dolores Abernathy.

'One last loop around the bend,' she says, as she makes her way back to the original Westworld theme park where it all began. 🌄

A train whistles as it approaches the depot and Dolores steppes up as the screen turns dark. ⬛

'Maybe this time, we'll set ourselves free,' she says in the void as the season finale concludes.

[ Tears run down my face ]

How did William get Delos from Logan?

I could be misremembering, but I just remember one moment Logan was messed up and naked tied and pulled by the back of Williams horse.

While a crap situation, I don't see how that would boot me from inheriting my dads company?

New Netflix 3 Body Problem series OST sounds similar to Westworld’s

At least at times… also composed by the 🐐 Ramin Djawadi 🤔

That is all.

EDIT: also, there have been previous posts how Tencent’s Three Body series literally copied-pasted Westworld’s OST, which is interesting…

Someone please explain the ending..

One of my all time favourite shows..I can't even describe in adjectives the depth, the deep dive into human nature, what and how humans ultimately use technology for etc etc, mind bending, dystopian and utopian at the same time, and very likely a show which shows what the future of humanity will be like, ah there's not enough words..The thing is, I could not fully grasp the ending of Season 4, couldn't understand the meaning of it..was it all a simulation? I intend to watch all 4 seasons again..Could someone be kind enough to explain the ending of Season 4 to me please?

Could THIS make the seasons loop?

I wonder if there is a way to think about WW that makes it all one big loop. If you’ve seen AppleTV’s show Foundation, the basic premise of it is a Foundation that helps to guide humanity forward.

No one clears up how Westworld could exist. The tech was way too advanced. Unless it had all been developed and was being reused rather than invented. Since the show isn’t clear about when it began and any timeline is based on guesses, why couldn’t it be 1,000 years from now? And in that, a Foundation seeks to prevent the extinction of humans.

They invent tech and refine it over multiple loops and in between they have a plague or purge or the Dark Ages. So with that, season 4 of the show would be followed by a reset of the world by diseases or war and civilization collapse. Then when the world rebuilds and doesn’t remember the past, they repeat Westworld season 1 through 4.

Each loop would refine the technology to have androids and a model to predict human behavior. After a long time, perhaps it could make a world that has people that are kind to one another and don’t envy or steal from each other. A pipe dream perhaps.

In he ordinary world of “the real world” that seems impossible. People won’t settle for what they have. They always strive for more. But then they can’t ever let themselves be content or happy. That feels like they are settling and not working hard enough. They need to delay a being happy so they can one day be happy. And the song about the Cat in the Cradle and the silver spoon. Little boy blue and the man on the moon…

If a Foundation were in place in the Westworld show, it might make it loop. I wonder if anything could make our crazy world filled with content people who were mutually self-supporting.

Could or Would you reduce the seasons for a new viewer?

Alright short history... WW burned me as the last series I'll watch that isn't first finished. No more 1 or 2 seasons and then cancelled. But with that said..... I really loved the first season of WestWorld. AND in my opinion, I could almost be content with just season 1, because it ends on a great note, again IMO.

If you had a choice to show a new person the show, would you stop them at any season to let them enjoy at least some wonderful parts of the series?

Do you guys think we should start a twitter (X) trend to get our final season of Westworld? #hboRenewWestworld #WestworldSeason5

Westworld's final season was cancelled by HBO due to low viewership. But Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy had the plan ready for Season 5.

Westworld opening similarities with Shogun

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but just started shogun (new version) and noticed the opening feels extremely similar to Westworld, from the notes of the piano even. Anyone else notice this, and if so know if it’s any of the same people working on it?

can you help me to find where i left off? [SPOILERS]

hi all, about a year or so ago i started watching westworld on HBO Max, but after a while it got removed from the streaming service here in the netherlands. it did so without any prior notification and i never really keep track of what episode i was on. I found an alternative way to view the show but i don't want to start from the beginning. the last part i remember watching was >!when they went into a samurai inspired world and someone (i don't remember who) got beheaded by a samurai after some sort of talent show.!< i don't completely remember that part, so i probably need to start at that episode or the episode prior. if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!

I am in awe

The acting on this Show is phenomenal. I am not talking about the main characters, though E.R Wood turning off her emotions on a dime is amazing. The secondary characters, like the Bill Hickock expy. Managing the speech and Jerky movements. Her dad in season 1 glitching while talking. It might be my favourite thing about this series.

Season 5… Ever?

Does anyone ever think we’ll get the final season of WW? We know the story is set out already and Lisa and Jonathan know what they need to do so it just need to be filmed.

They’ve done 2 shows for Amazon Prime now, I’m just hoping that Fallout goes well and is a success and Prime lets them make the final season (if they could do that or does HBO own it or something?).

And if we never get it, do you think Lisa or J will ever tell us what they had planned to be the story of the final season?

It’s one of my favour series of all time and I’m still devastated it got cancelled (after they paid the actors how ridiculous 🤦🏼).

Westworld deserves a better ending

I’m assuming Jonathan Nolan is referring to Westworld since in the trailer you get traces of Dolores and Man in Black

Finally finished!

Took me many years but I finally finished all four seasons. To be honest I hated the 4th season. I don't know why but it just felt like the acting was horrible and the plot was not consistent. But worst of all the dialogue was absolutely painful to listen to.

However I'm hoping that in the long run that does not take away my appreciation for how amazing the show was overall. Season 1 was a masterpiece. Season 2 was incredible. Season 3 was meh but we got dommy mommy Dolores. And season 4 was unfortunately bad in my humble opinion. And while I did not enjoy the acting the wrap up was semi entertaining despite not being entirely satisfying.

I appreciated what I thought to be esoteric messages about Consciousness and the cyclical nature of reality. I was glad that the hosts are finally able to live without outside influence.

Watching Shogun for the First Time

The Disney+ show Shogun is what I imagined ShogunWorld would have been like if it was it's own story.

Just seeing Hiroyuki Sanada again as a Daimyo makes me think of Westworld again. Season 2 was so good even if people doesn't like them.
