Westworld Episode 2 Review: “Well Enough Alone”

“Westworld” Season 4’s second episode gave us a lot more solid footing, revealing how many hosts have replaced humans in the real world, what Charlores’ ultimate goal seems to be, what the new park looks like and whether William is really dead.

But “Well Enough Alone” also stirred up plenty of mystery, including the life and death of Peter Myers, the science behind the black goo and more questions about The Tower. We’ll get to it all in this Deep Dive edition.

Westworld Episode 2 Summary:
The rogue copy of Dolores in Charlotte’s body is revealed to be replacing U.S. government officials with host copies, with the William host acting as her enforcer and continuing as CEO of Delos. She keeps the human William alive in cryogenic stasis. The Vice President of the United States visits William to warn him against opening a new Delos park on U.S. soil, but William attacks him and replaces him with a host. Maeve and Caleb encounter host copies of California Senator Ken Whitney and his wife Anastasia, and use the former’s memory logs to learn of Charlotte’s involvement. They find the real Anastasia in a horse farm behaving erratically, and Maeve is forced to kill her when she attacks them. Following cryptic directions Anastasia gave them before she died, Maeve and Caleb find themselves on a train headed into Delos’ new park, themed after the Roaring Twenties. Christina finds one of her old narrative files matching what happened to Peter. She visits a mental health hospital in New Jersey to which Peter donated, only to find it abandoned and riddled with drawings of a distinctive tower.
