    The humans seemed different in this episode vs last. Last week it looked like William turned them into frenzied monsters, pretty much 28 days later rage zombies. This week they were cool, calm, terminators. Planning out murders. Like camping with a sniper rifle.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Steven Ogg and his baseball bat, referencing his GTA character.

    We still don’t know when this is set. It could be like BSG and be thousands of years in the past

    My only hope for the final season, Maeve makes a full return. Not the cyber/sublime version, but the real O.G. version.

    *Stubbs would be a nice addition too.

    I honestly thought this was the series finale! It could certainly serve as one if they aren't renewed. Glad to see that they plotted the end back in the beginning though if we do get a 5th & final season. Tessa Thompson continues to impress me as an actor.

    It's just being realistic. There's a small group of survivors who were having to sneak in and steal supplies from the city, now they don't have access to that at all. Assuming that there is still animal life, they can hunt but eventually people get sick or hurt. Best case scenario where the survivors live a long heathy life, there still isn't enough people to maintain a viable population. It's just a matter of time.

    I think he's supposed to be a Millennial based on a few references he's made.

    It's absolutely unreasonable because it's completely unobservant. Please learn something this time so that we'll be spared the indignation the next time it happens.

    Yes, we do.

    The first two seasons take place in 2052; Season 3 takes place in 2053; and Season 4 takes place in both 2061 and 2084.

    Unless the producers are lying about that. Oh Noes!

    Given that everything I posted about the timeline of the series comes directly from what we were shown onscreen, your attempted taunt falls flatter than a mattress.

    I was less than impressed with the final third of the season and really feel that we had a decent conclusion to the series, despite Maeve's final lines. If it does come back for a final season, considering where we left the show could pick up far into the future.

    To reiterate what Locutus pointed out there uptopic, your posting history to this point includes very few examples of accurate predictions or statements concerning television or films. So skepticism regarding any assertion you make about these things is sensible.

    You should stop doing this.

    ^ My personal credibility has no effect whatsoever on the factual nature of what I posted with regards to the Westworld timeline as depicted onscreen.

    Nice try, though.

    Your personal credibility has everything to do with it; as LoB pointed out, your posts are riddled with every kind of error and misinterpretation.

    The "onscreen timeline" you refer to is inconsistent with the show's internal continuity. Therefore it's "authoritative" without being accurate. That's not unusual in TV produced over a period of years; Trek for example is rife with irreconcilable chronologies.

    Nice try, though.

    Ah, yes. A fan-edited wiki. Excellent source.

    The great thing about wikis is that if you feel there is an error, become an editor of the wiki. Wikipedia is the largest, most accurate, and up to date encyclopedia ever created despite the fact that people love to point out its errors.
