Warning: Spoilers for the first three episodes of Westworld, and for potentially this upcoming one!
Our girl Dolores certainly had quite the life-changing experience in last week’s episode, “The Stray”—she broke out of her storyline to finally fight back against her rapist. She’s falling “down the rabbit hole,” an Alice In Wonderland motif that the show has used multiple times in terms of Dolores.
But the connection between the two fictional women was made even more overt in last week’s episode, when Bernard has Dolores to read a passage from the actual book:
Dolores had no idea how close those words resemble her own life. But we suspect she’ll have a better understanding, considering how “The Stray” left off.
What will Dolores do now that she’s killed a person? Will she remember her multiple horrible experiences? Will William help her? And what about Maeve? Will the Shakespearian quote “These violent delights will have violent ends” cause her to start to act out violently?
We have so many questions!!!
And what’s the deal with the maze? It seems The Man in Black won’t be the only one looking for it, considering the trailer for this week’s episode, “Dissonance Theory.”
Like all things Westworld, it seems the best we can do is sit back, relax, and see where the show takes us.
