The end is coming fast for the first season of Westworld, and while some questions have been answered, more continue to mount as we barrel towards a climax. So, before things hopefully start getting revealed in both the penultimate ninth episode (assuming this show operates on the same principle as early seasons of Game of Thrones) and the extra-large finale, here’s another handful of queries we came up with while watching the latest offering from HBO’s newest hit.
9. So, Theresa’s Just Dead, Then?
All those thoughts that Ford might cover up Theresa’s death, and possibly replace her with a host, are apparently for naught. Her death is quickly explained to have been due to an “accident” of some sort, and it seems like absolutely everyone is okay with that. So, do enough people die in this park behind the scenes due to accidents that this sort of thing is just waved away as something that just happens? Shouldn’t someone be investigating the reasons why a high-ranking member of the company funding the park somehow died in a way that absolutely nobody noticed? Perhaps the explanation was that it was related to the sabotage to the hosts, making her completely at fault, but it still seems like something that everyone seems to have accepted very quickly. Ford did say that Delos has tried to test him in the past, is the possibility that you might die mysteriously just seen as an acceptable potential risk when you’re sent to investigate Westworld?
