Westworld Episode 1 Theories: “The Auguries”

Westworld Episode 1 Theories: “The Auguries”

This week’s listener voicemail and letters mostly seemed to focus on two big topics: Who is Christina, and are we in a simulation? And while it’s too soon to tell, the tinfoil is coming in hot.

Season 4, Episode 1 also had listeners thinking about whether “Westworld” can still draw an audience, what the episode titles might mean, and how much hosts may have evolved in the seven years since Rehoboam fell.

Gene loses his mind trying to think through the possibility of time behaving differently in The Sublime, and Ash takes cheap shots at Aaron Paul’s hair.

Westworld Episode 1 Summary:
A host copy of William manipulates the owner of the Hoover Dam, which now houses a large data vault that contains data he wants from eight years ago, to give it to him for free before killing himself. In New York City, Christina works as a writer at Olympiad Entertainment, creating stories for the non-player characters in video games. She is repeatedly called by a man named Peter, who claims she is controlling his life, and proves it by jumping to his death in front of her. Maeve, living in a remote area, is discovered by hosts that she kills and discovers were sent by William. She drives to California to stop another host from killing Caleb and his new family. Caleb goes with Maeve to protect the next target. Back in New York City, Christina wishes to write a story with a happy ending before retiring, unaware she is being watched by someone resembling Teddy from below.
