Best Westworld Season Two Theories
Westworld is currently halfway through its second season, and fans are buzzing about what’s left to be revealed. A lot can happen in the remaining four episodes, and we’ve compiled the Internet’s best theories on what we have left to see.
The Hosts Are Going to Have Babies
The line between human and host becomes less clear as time goes on in Westworld. We saw hosts Dolores and Teddy getting intimate by their own choice for the first time in episode 5, and it brings up questions about whether the hosts can have babies. Dolores is an older host model, so kids are probably out of the equation for her, but some of the newer-model hosts may have the capability for procreation. The opening credits of this season even showcase a host with a child.
Dolores is Following Ford’s Narrative
William’s father-in-law died when William was a younger man, and this season we have seen his efforts to make a host that could hold his father-in-law’s consciousness (with no success). We also saw Ford die early this season; is it possible that Ford has managed put his consciousness into Dolores and is still controlling things? We’ve seen Ford do this before with Arnold. If Ford is still alive, this would lend to our next theory.
Ford is Controlling the Mesh Network
Bernard first alludes to this mesh network a few episodes ago when trying to find Peter Abernathy. Bernard mentions that hosts can send messages out to the hosts nearest to them subconsciously. These messages rebound from host to host until reaching their destination. This network would explain how Maeve has been able to control individual host’s actions. By gaining sentience, she is accessing the mesh network on a small scale. If Ford is still alive, it is possible that he has accessed the mesh network between hosts on a much larger scale. This would explain the recent turn that hosts are taking against humans.
Maeve and Dolores Will Duke It Out
Maeve and Dolores’ early season run-in caused quite the stir. Although they don’t have history, the two crossed paths and ended up drawing guns on each other. As is the case in Westworld, tensions only seem to grow once a conflict is introduced. If the gals cross paths again, it may escalate into an all-out brawl between the two host camps.
Season Two Will End the Park
With all the chaos that is erupting in this season, we may see a permanent move out of the park. Dolores is preparing for her and Teddy to make an escape out into the real world. Maeve knows that her memories of her daughter are programmed, but she still wants to search for her. Looks like maternal instinct cuts deeper than programming. If Maeve ever manages to find her daughter, she may continue with her original plan of escaping the park. We are only halfway through the season and have a lot left to see, but it seems like the hosts are ready to break out of the world that they have been trapped in.
