Westworld: Around 2058, Delos Inc. operates one of several parks, including the Old West-themed, Westworld. Each is populated by “hosts,” androids programmed to fulfill the guests’ every desire. The operators create narrative loops for these hosts to repeat, wiping their memories each cycle.
In season one, Dr. Robert Ford implements an update that causes some hosts, including Dolores Abernathy and Maeve Millay, to gain sentience. Bernard Lowe and Board Executive Director, Charlotte Hale, try to debug the problem, while the “Man in Black,” seeks “the maze” he believes Ford left for him. Bernard discovers he is a host, and the season ends as Dr. Ford is killed by Dolores.
Dolores’ revolution continues in the second season. Dolores and Bernard locate the Forge, a databank where Delos kept recordings of guest behavior to provide these guests with a chance for immortality. Maeve seeks out her “daughter” and helps her and other hosts escape to the Sublime, a virtual space human cannot access. Bernard creates a Charlotte-host for Dolores who evacuates from the park with the cores of other hosts.
In season three, Dolores has recreated her host body and others, including Bernard’s. She seeks information on Rehoboam, an AI system created by Incite, Inc. Bernard, who is still believed human, is blamed for the Westworld massacre, and he takes on a new identity while trying to fight Dolores.
