‘Westworld’: A Simple Guide to What Is Going On Before Season 4


Have you ever began the new season of HBO’s Westworld and located you haven’t any concept what every character is doing? What are they after? It would not assist that the earlier important character — Dolores (Evan Rachel Wooden) — now seems to be a very completely different particular person. A human, not a number from the notorious Westworld theme park.

A minimum of a few of that may be defined by the ending of season 3. Let’s dive into every thing that occurred and get you again on-line.

Aaron Paul in Westworld

Aaron Paul joined the Westworld forged in season 3.


Caleb (Aaron Paul) joined the forged

The third season launched us to Caleb Nichols (Breaking Dangerous’s Aaron Paul), a battle veteran who’s haunted by a reminiscence of dropping his pal, Francis, in fight. In episode 1, we realized he is a building employee and low-level felony who takes jobs by an app. When he met Dolores, he joined her on her mission.

Finally, we came upon that Caleb is taken into account to be an “outlier” by a machine referred to as Solomon and its successor, Rehoboam. Due to this standing, he underwent reconditioning remedy, a “therapy” that altered his recollections. It was “efficient,” in line with Solomon, and Caleb was allowed to re-enter society. Not everybody was so fortunate (extra on that within the “pods” part).

It is revealed that Caleb and Francis (performed by rapper Child Cudi) each survived the battle, and that Caleb was the one who killed Francis. Solomon provided every of them cash to take out the opposite, and Francis turned on Caleb, forcing Caleb to shoot him. One other twist is that the crime app, Rico, was created in order that outliers like Caleb would spherical up different outliers.

Maeve and Caleb are working collectively

Maeve reluctantly teamed up with a brand new character named Engerraund Serac in season 3 after Serac informed her that the important thing to the Elegant — the place Maeve’s daughter exists — is in Dolores’ thoughts. Serac is a trillionaire who created Rehoboam along with his brother, Jean Mi, and got here to function a mouthpiece for Rehoboam. Serac and Rehoboam needed the trove of visitor information collected by Delos Included, and so they believed the important thing to it was additionally in Dolores’ thoughts.

Within the season 3 finale, Maeve switched sides at a vital second and helped Dolores and Caleb. She mentioned she realized why Dolores “selected” Caleb to assist her — not due to his capability for violence, however due to his capability to decide on. Dolores left it as much as Caleb to resolve the longer term. He informed Rehoboam to “execute the ultimate command” — placing a brand new technique Solomon gave him into play — and introduced concerning the apocalypse. Extra particulars on that huge transfer beneath.

Within the third episode of Westworld, Caleb and Dolores get to know one another higher.


Dolores is not any more-es. Effectively, perhaps

Within the season 3 finale, Rehoboam destroyed Delores’ recollections in an try to seek out the important thing to the aforementioned Delos information. It wasn’t there. It certain looks like Dolores as we all know her could also be gone for good, however with this present, I am not ruling any chance out.

‘Charlotte Hale’ is constructing hosts

It is not the top for this Dolores duplicate. Season 3 confirmed that Dolores made copies of herself (the “self” that exists in her peal, or management unit) and caught them into the our bodies of Charlotte, Musashi, Martin and Lawrence. Pseudo-Charlotte helped Dolores by impersonating Hale, however she was ultimately came upon, and it price her. The final time we noticed new Charlotte, it was within the finale’s post-credit scene, when she was joined by a number model of William and seemed to be constructing extra hosts.

Host William has changed William

Season 3 was a doozy for William. He had hallucinations of the daughter he murdered, was tricked by the brand new model of Charlotte and endured some unconventional futuristic remedy. When he emerged from all of that, William declared that his “unique sin” was constructing hosts, and he was going to wipe out all of them. Nonetheless, within the finale’s post-credit scene, William was fatally wounded by one other model of himself — one who solutions to pretend Charlotte.

A bunch of people are nonetheless in these bizarre pods

Solomon revealed in episode 7 that the therapy given to Caleb solely works on one in 10 folks. So what occurs to everybody else? Apparently, they get put to sleep in pods, the place they “aren’t even allowed to stay or die,” as Caleb put it. In episode 7, we noticed what appears like a whole bunch of the eerie, grey, human-sized containers.

Caleb ushered in… the apocalypse

So again to that entire apocalypse factor. When Caleb made his ultimate transfer within the season 3 finale, he says he is doing it to offer the world a alternative, like Dolores did for him. The present shifts to Bernard, who shed some much-needed gentle on Dolores’ intentions, and the implications of Caleb’s transfer: “She wasn’t making an attempt to exterminate the human race. She was making an attempt to put it aside,” Bernard mentioned. “What’s about to occur was at all times gonna occur. Serac and his brother have been simply holding it off. Humanity by no means reckoned with its personal sins.” He added: “Our world needed to burn down earlier than we might be free.”

So the reckoning is now. Stubbs, who was with Bernard in that scene, referred to as it the apocalypse, and Bernard did not right him. On the finish of the finale (earlier than the post-credits), we see Caleb and Maeve looking at some skyscrapers, that are shaken by explosions.

Bernard is headed into the Elegant

Bernard, not Delores, has the important thing to the Elegant, the place occupied by hosts together with Maeve’s daughter. Within the season 3 finale, Bernard used it, saying that he was on the lookout for a solution to what comes after the top of the world.

We might even see Engerraund Serac’s brother, Jean Mi in season 4

We noticed Jean Mi in season 3 flashbacks, and it is implied he was sitting in one of many pods we noticed within the penultimate episode. Within the season 3 finale, Engerraund principally admitted he podded (pod-ded?) his brother, beneath directions from Rehoboam. Perhaps we’ll see him as soon as extra when the present addresses these chilling capsules once more?
