Westworld Episode 7 Instant Take: “Metanoia”

Gene and Ash crown “Metanoia” the best episode since “Westworld” Season 2 in this instant-reaction episode of Shat on TV. Season 4, Episode 7 gave us gripping dialogue, heartbreak, big reveals and, most importantly, the old-school pairings we’d been craving.

Was this payoff for the previous six episodes? Will it build into an explosive season finale? We’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, have a listen as we prepare for Tuesday’s Deep Dive.
