‘Westworld’ Season 4, Episode 5 Recap: Stories We Tell Ourselves – CNET

A daring extractionMeanwhile, Stubbs, J and more members of the “cause” reach the city by boat. Theyre there to save an outlier– one that Chalores has separately tasked host William with tracking down.J (the leader-type cause member) discusses a bit more about how Chalores operation works: human beings “move in pre-scripted loops following whatever plots been written for them.” The loops keep them hectic, he says, which stops them from questioning their realities. (Stubbs jokes that Chalores learned something from the park.) J describes himself and the others as “the last totally free people” and says she (Chalores) cant track them in the desert.Host William gets to the outlier first– a woman on a roof watching out at the tower. She talks for a minute, and he listens, even letting her rest her head on his shoulder. Host William unexpectedly remembers what hes there for, but J gets here and shoots him prior to he can act. J, the woman outlier, and the others make it back to the boat safely.Later, host William awakens human William from a cryosleep, concerned hes been “infected” by the outlier. Human William asks him if he wants to eliminate himself, and host William states he does not know.Stubbs, played by Luke Hemsworth.

Christina the storytellerAfter her conflict with Emmett, Christina walks through a door and up to what looks like a 3D diagram of the city. He seems to be referring to the Dolores element of Chalores … which would likewise line up with the concept that Christina is in reality a memory-wiped Dolores.Before her memory got wiped, Dolores stuck a copy of her own pearl into Chalores head. Heres how we know: The program covers the Charlotte/Dolores hybrid circumstance in season 3 in a less-than-straightforward method, but it makes sense given that we see Dolores bring a host variation of Hale back online in episode 3 (who does not understand who she is), and find out that Dolores copied herself/her pearl in the following episode.

Chalores plan has actually come to fulfillment, and it includes hosts and humans living together with each other, however not as equals. In the past, Dolores made copies of herself– the “self” that exists in her pearl, or control unit– and put one into a host version of Hale.In episode 5, we learn that host William (and probably all hosts inhabiting the city) have the ability to control people on an impulse. At the start of the episode, host William dines with a couple who believe they are speaking to a pal.

Hosts are going haywireDuring his break from torturing the couple, William visits a criminal offense scene. A trail of bodies results in a host called Hope. It turns out Hope went on a murder spree after tracking down an “outlier”– somebody who snapped out of Chalores sound control and became aware of their reality. Later on, we find out that Hope passed away by suicide following her interaction, and shes not the only one. Chalores says 38 hosts have reached outliers and subsequently taken their own lives.In a flashback, we see that the outlier Hope communicated with is a character weve seen earlier this season– the man raving about a tower on Christinas commute to work.Chalores desires hosts to go beyond We see Chalores as a harsh “god,” commanding humans to dance for her entertainment, play piano until their fingers end up being bloody and arrange their bodies into a chair for her to being in. After all of this, she wallows in the fact that her kind (hosts) continue to indulge themselves with people. “We can remake ourselves in any image that we like and we have not,” she states. “Our kinds invested far more time here than the gods ever did.” Chalores vision of the future involves hosts “transcending,” a conversation between her and host William reveals. She isnt getting lots of takers for the procedure, as hosts “seem as wedded to their bodies as they do to the cities,” William points out. We see what looks like the procedure taking place in the background: A hosts pearl is removed and put into some sort of white structure, which then begins to rotate.Chalores refers to her vision as “the giving up of the flesh.” She says she wont force hosts to join her, since thats what they (people) would have done.Ah, remember their college days?

Christina gets a clueIn Sundays episode, Christina lastly discovers the truth about the world, and comes to another surprising realization– she plays a role in keeping it. He encourages her to try and control 2 humans sitting side by side in chairs, their heads buried in books. Christina gets him to back off by telling his next relocations out loud (he need to be human rather than host), and sends him house to his partner.
