Westworld lovers and haters are doing battle on this week's Telegraph, writing in about the Season 2 finale, "The Passenger." Critics say the plot holes were unforgivable. Fans say doubters are missing the entire point of the show. And most of us are torn somewhere in between.

This listener mail edition is loaded with scathing reviews, high praise, odd voicemails, and a beautiful Radiohead cover from listener Si Haywood. Check it out, and join us next week for the season recap and a bonus Telegraph.

We couldn't agree on Dolores' Five Pearls, the Man in Black's post-credits scene, or where the hosts went. So we went to the source. Roger scours a Lisa Joy interview explaining "The Passenger" and quizzes Gene and Big D on what the heck we saw during the Season 2 finale.

Also, Gene issues a massive mea culpa for all the things he got wrong this season. Big D apologizes for his flubs. And Roger kinda sorta says he might maybe have gotten something possible wrong. But also maybe not.

Some hosts reached The Valley Beyond. Some hosts reached the outside world. And some viewers reached the end of their wits.

Westworld's Season 2 finale, "The Passenger" brought back some of our favorite characters, but the twists and turns left some fans a little queasy. 

Find some solid ground with us as we lay out what we learned, what questions remain for Season 3, and why Episode 10 might be the best 90 minutes of TV in years.

Episode 8 seemed pretty straightforward ... until listener emails and voicemails arrived. We missed a lot, and "Westworld" fans were there to set the record straight.

Let's take a different look at "Kiksuya" and answer the most complicated questions, including:

  • Is host consciousness the result of intelligent design or simple mistakes?
  • Was the Maze left for Akecheta on purpose?
  • When did Dolores pass "violent delights" to Maeve?
  • Was James Delos actually a fidelity test for William

Apologies for the rough audio on this one. We hope the amazing content makes up for it.

Jun 12, 2018

"Kiksuya" ranks among the easiest Westworld episodes to follow and the most emotionally powerful. But that doesn't mean it wasn't without mysteries to unpack.

How did Maeve communicate with Akecheta from across the park? What did she say? And what was the meaning when you dive a level deeper? 

How much did Ford help Akecheta in his journey, and what are the different paths to consciousness? 

We also examine Logan's role in Akecheta's discovery of The Door and learn how to pronounce Akecheta's name ... which Big D promptly forgets.

"Kiksuya" delighted "Westworld" fans who wanted the story a little slower, a little clearer, and with a little more heart. But it wasn't without big revelations that tie to the greater story.

In Season 2,  Episode 8, we learn how the Maze keeps showing up in the park, see more of the facility William is building, expand Maeve's abilities, and begin to see what The Door could be.

Oh, and Logan is still naked.

Episode 7 heats up the Westworld debate as listeners write in to argue Charlotte could be Charlie; Dolores and Maeve are conflicting views of feminism; Angela really could charm the grenade off a horny QA thug; artificial intelligence is just waiting to spring its trap; someone's going to rescue the Man in Black; and more.

Voicemails start at the 1:02 mark and include the possibility we've only seen a simulated world so far, the idea Emily wasn't searching for the Man in Black in the first place, and another freaky message from Driver Bob.

This week's Instacast was extra short, so we made the Telegraph extra long. Bone apple tea!

Westworld Season 2 Episode 7 pulled the curtain from the Valley Beyond, so let's venture there and explore its implications. We'll tell you where it is, what's being stored there, and how Dolores can use it to battle mankind.

We'll also meet Farnold (or Fernarnold), the star of "Les Ecorches," and celebrate how intelligently Westworld re-introduced Ford's control to the series. 

Don't forget Maeve and Sizemore! Can we call them friends? Big D makes a pretty good case while Gene bids a teary farewell to Peter Abernathy.

And finally, we'll go frame-by-frame through Bernard's rapid flashback at the end of the episode. Trust us, it's worth the painstaking dissection. Big ol' meaty hints.

Big D called "Les Ecorches" the Thanksgiving Dinner of Westworld episodes, and to many of us it felt like a season finale. So many questions were answered, so many characters may have been killed. 

Ford is back in a big way. Bullets are flying. And the Man in Black is getting his come-uppance. But did Season 2 give up too many secrets too quickly? Tell us what you think at hosts@shatontv.com, then join us Tuesday for the Westworld Deep Dive.

First, disenchanted viewers turned their guns on "Westworld." Now, frustrated listeners are setting their sights on us. From who Elsie actually is, to the Man in Black's conversation with Emily, to Emily's real name, you had a lot to say about Season 2 Episode 6: "Phase Space." With more than 100 emails received this week, it's another packed episode of the Westworld Telegraph.

Plus, we get a voicemail from last Telegraph's mysterious Butt Dialer, and one listener argues the Man in Black isn't even a main character!

Westworld's entire reality has changed, and that means all we thought we knew means squat. So we're diving deep without a tether and hoping we find hidden treasures in Episode 6, "Phase Space."

This Deep Dive explores whether Grace or the Man in Black is a host, how many realities exist in Westworld, and how many Bernards are creeping around the park. 

We also explain what exactly The Cradle can do, why it's so powerful, and what exactly happened between Ghost Nation and Maeve.

We're halfway through Season 2, but Westworld isn't showing any signs of fatigue as they blow up some popular early theories, while introducing even more. Gene & Kerri are in Los Angeles celebrating Gene's birthday, so Rog & Big D are left in the studio to break down episode 6, "Phase Space". 

In this SUPER SIZED Instacast, the Original Shat Duo use every bit of their old host memory control units (MCU's) to unravel: 

  • The meaning of Phase Space and how it may relate to the episode plot
  • Which Timeframes, or REALITIES, we just witnessed
  • The MiB & Grace's mistrusting relationship
  • Terminator Teddy & the Kamikaze Train
  • The End of Shogun World(?)
  • Sylvester & Felix's Bogus Journey
  • The CR4DLE
  • Why Maeve didn't use her Jedi Mind Trick on Akecheta 

All these topics, plus the boys play an amazing acoustic cover sent in from a listener, Simon H. 

P.S. - Holy sh*t, could Big D's Wild Bernard A.I. Theory be real?

Louis Herthum plays the original Peter Abernathy in "Westworld," and his role has exploded in Season 2. He'll discuss key "Westworld" scenes to rewatch, dive deeper into the Peter Abernathy character, explain the Southern "fool look," and possibly reveal horrifying secrets about "Murder, She Wrote."

Herthum also talks parenthood, LSU football, golf, and volunteerism. Oh, and Gene gets called out in a big way.

Where did the Man in Black actually start? Where did William end? Can techs adjust "woke" hosts' settings? And is "Westworld" borrowing from Dune?"

One listener wrote in with proof Ghost Nation is a security feature of Westworld, and another explained how the dressing-room-to-train trick worked in Season 1.

Are you ready for a record 17 listener emails plus six voicemail Telegraphs? You sent more than 127 theories, observations, questions, and comments about Westworld Season 2, Episode 4, "Riddle of the Sphinx." They ranged from "Is Delos already using the tech from the James Delos experiment?" to "Who's the actual hero of the show?"

We also were deeply moved by Telegraphs explaining the value of this podcast community and the personal tale of one listener who has experienced the suicide of a significant other.

It's a groundbreaking Telegraph, and we appreciate all your help. Have a listen, then join us Sunday for Episode 5, "Akane No Mai."

Westworld's viewership is slumping, but our hearts are pumping. How can you not love a show that brings you horrifying glimpses of technological immortality? Or a show that examines time as a data point, rather than a linear absolute.

This Deep Dive examines Season 2 Episode 4, "Riddle of the Sphinx," and gets into the marrow of what Westworld is all about.

  • What are the three times we see Bernard visit Lab 12?
  • Who is the control unit for?
  • How are Elsie's clothes still clean?
  • Why is the Man in Black changing so rapidly?
  • Is Ford still running the show?

Get all caught up before we leave the friendly confines of Sweetwater and head toward Shogun World next week.

Westworld Season 2 just keeps getting darker with Episode 4: "Riddle of the Sphinx." Recorded just minutes after the episode aired, this Instacast quickly outlines what we learned and the big new questions everyone is asking.

If you guessed Delos is trying to create eternal life, you're right. But did the project succeed? At least we now know what happened to James Delos.

Elsie's back, and Bernard's killed again. Or has he? Hard to tell with that wacky memory.

And we finally can agree on who Grace from The Raj really is. But how will she fit into the fate of the parks?
