Westworld Episode 7 Theories: “Trompe L’Oeil”

This week’s Westworld fan mail is bursting with strong theories: Dolores’ role as a custom narrative for William, Teddy being based on William, Arnold being the man depicted ushering Dolores toward consciousness, Hector improvising poetry in his blacklisted conversation, and more.

Other theories are a little more out there: Logan is Charlotte, Ford is using ghost hosts and Westworld is in space.

But no theory brings together the calculated and the crazy quite like Big D’s Unified Field Theory of Westworld. Like a novice Wheel of Fortune player, Dick thinks he’s got it all figured out with three episodes (and another season) to go. Listen to his rant and let us know if you think Big D is on to something. Or a complete tinfoil asshat.

Westworld Episode 7 Summary:
“Trompe L’Oeil” It is revealed that Theresa and Hale are both secretly stealing Ford’s research for the board so that they can oust him from the park without fear of him destroying his work in retribution. They engineer an event to demonstrate that Ford’s “reveries” make the hosts violent and uncontrollable in their narratives. Bernard is blamed for the update of untested faulty code and fired as a result. Aboard an escape train, William and Dolores develop romance (have sex). Though, their train is soon ambushed by the Confederados, forcing William, Dolores, and Lawrence to flee; they are able to escape when the Ghost Nation, a horde of hostile natives, appears. Dolores and William part ways with Lawrence and set their sights westward. Meanwhile, Maeve finds her friend Clementine retired by the staff. Maeve decides to use Felix and Sylvester to escape the park. Bernard takes Theresa to Sector 17; inside a hidden lab she finds design plans that reveal he is a host. Ford appears, reiterates to her that he has complete control over the park, regardless of what the board thinks, and instructs Bernard to kill her.
