The first season finale of Westworld definitely answered a whole bunch of questions, even as it created a whole bunch more in the process. The good news is, the show is the most-watched first season in the history of HBO, and so we’ll definitely be getting a second season (and almost certainly more) to answer these new questions. The bad news is, that second season isn’t going to be around until 2018, so these questions are going to stay unanswered for a long time. But that just gives us more time to debate, right? So, here’s some questions to ponder while we impatiently wait for the next season of a show that we consider to be truly excellent.
11. So, What Was The Maze About, Anyway?
Okay, this is probably obvious to a lot of people, but it was vague enough that we’ll try and explain it for those who didn’t understand. The reason that William kept getting told that “The Maze isn’t for you” is because it quite literally wouldn’t mean anything to the already-human Guests. The Maze, originally, was a theory about the mind that Arnold tried to program into the first Hosts, in order to make them more human. He succeeded, but then was forced to have Dolores kill all the original Hosts, including herself, in order to try and prevent the park from opening and exposing them to great harm. In the present day, Ford re-installed Arnold’s “Reverie” programming into the hosts, and The Maze was a storyline created specifically for Dolores to help her attain consciousness and lead the other Hosts against the Guests. And like any good story, it was about the journey, not the destination. The child’s toy she uncovered was the final piece of the puzzle, but it was the suffering along the way that allowed her to regain her memories. As a result, she also unlocked her “Wyatt” personality, which is why she now really, really wants to murder people.https://realsic.com/shop/the-maze-black-gold-enamel-pin/ Source: Realsic.com
