  1. The more I dwell on the finale, the more I think about this quote from episode 7 The name of that episode was "Trompe L'Oeil" means "deceive the eye" and is an art technique to create optical illusions. This scene seems more in character than the Ford we saw last night. So yeah, I agree with those that think Ford faked his death with a host body he built in that private lab under his boyhood home. He's probably down in one of the seemingly endless levels that were built atop each other as the technology advanced. .

    Thank you for mentioning the stinger! I missed it to jump online. She is SO awesome. eta: I also loved when she and Hector realized that they had automatic weapons to shoot. They both practically "squeed!" Yeah, her how storyline is beyond me at this point but it gave us some good stuff. Her "Oh FFS, you aren't one of us!" to Felix when he started wonder made me belly laugh. You know, I lamented that with Bernard being a host and William the MiB that there was a not a single GOOD human on the show. In the end, Felix was a good person.

    So much to digest. William as MiB seems almost the least of it now. I had figured that the Maze was consciousness, especially on re-watches when Lawrence's lil girl told MiB that the Maze "is not for you". But I am floored that Ford was not actually blocking the hosts from consciousness but encouraging it. Bernard murdering Elise and Theresa (and Stubbs?) seems not to save Ford's power but to give Delores time to complete the Maze before the Board took over. How Maeve fit into I'm still not sure...Arnold's code that Ford denied to Bernard at the end? It seems that Ford was one for showing bluster to hide weakness. He did that to Theresa when he said the Board wouldn't overthrow him. There are still a lot of questions.

    With the Redskins loss, the Cowboys just clinched a playoff spot. A win next week vs Giants, Cowboys win division and can clinch homefield advantage with a little help. What a difference a year can make.
  6. HBO's Westworld(v4)- What door? [spoilers]

    I will say that this show really makes you work for it. The timelines, what's narrative and what isn't, what is Ford's doing and what is Arnold's? So much going on that you forget things like what the Hell is going on with the Ghost Nation and why did they kidnap Stubbs? Predictions? Well, I think half of the Host's awakening is Ford's new narrative and the other half is Arnold's Bicameral code. I also think that Ford's narrative is actually a defense of the park vs the Board, to prevent his ouster. I think the Board is actually aware of this but what they think is Ford's narrative is actually Arnold's.

    Well, that was the sloppiest game the Cowboys have played all season. 10 penalties and 2 fumbles were I think season highs yet they found a way to win. I'm rather happy with the win...they were due for a stinker of a game yet found a way to win. You are right that the team that played last night won't beat Seattle of Atlanta (or New York or Washington for that matter) but again I think that they were due a bad game and they still won in a tough place. This team has also won in Washington, Green Bay, and Pittsburgh this year.

    Plus both William and The MiB have blue eyes, Logan has brown eyes. Upon re-watch, I noticed the 5th episode, "Contrapasso" contains some subtle clues. Just before The MiB kills and drains Lawrence to revive Teddy, he says to Lawrence that another "old friend" says there's a path for everyone. The very next scene after MiB revives Teddy is Delores and William and she uses that very script as they are walking around in Pariah. He also tells Lawrence that part of the reason he had kept him around is that no one else in the world dared to take the tone with him that Lawrence did, except perhaps in a past life. In other words, pre-Westworld William. The later conversation between Ford and MiB also takes on new meaning when you consider it's not just a park founder vs top guest but park founder vs powerful board member.

    Yeah, I just went back to episode 1 where Abernathy showed Delores the picture. It is the same one Logan had in this episode. And yeah, I'm sure William opened up a BUNCH of the soldiers in that massacre.
  10. HBO's Westworld(v4)- What door? [spoilers]

    William has the same coloring as MiB. Logan is brown haired and eyed. It fits better that the park turned William into a ruthless person who would leave the park changed. I think it's likely that he leaves the park turns the tables on Logan in the business world. I don't think Logan is as smart as he thinks he is. If it's true, it's kind of sad that the only two decent real people when the show began were Bernard and William. One is a robot and the other got completely corrupted

    The penultimate episode needed to answer questions and boy did it. The Delores with William is an old cybernetic model, pretty much confirming William is The MiB. We've been seeing her in different timelines and the present day Delores has been following the same path that she took with William. Each time took her to the church and then to Arnold/Bernard. That reveal was kind of a gut punch because it compounds just how badly Ford fucked over Arnold. It seems that Ford used Delores to kill Arnold just as he has used Bernard to kill Theresa and Elsie...never getting his own hands dirty. The kicker, though, is that while Ford had his backdoor to defeat Bernard, Arnold's backdoor is deeper. "These violent delights bring violent ends" is the code that Abernathy used to re-awaken Delores who in turn awoken Maive. I can't wait for the finale.

    That's a really good analogy regarding the offenses and it's the "3 point shooting" teams that concern me in the NFC. I might be crazy but actually I'm more afraid of Atlanta, Washington, and the Giants than I am of Seattle. Dallas' offense matches up well against Seattle's defense. They are one of the few teams that can match Seattle's line AND secondary with their own weapons. The Cowboys beat Seattle in Seattle 2 years ago and lost by 1 point to them last year with the GREAT Matt Cassel at QB. One interesting thing is the remaining teams on the NFC East's schedule: The Giants have @Steelers, Cowboys, Lions, @Eagles, @Redskins. Washington has @Cardinals, @Eagles, Panthers, @Bears, Giants. Philly has tonight vs Packers, @Bengals, Redskins, @Ravens, Giants, Cowboys Dallas has @Minnesota, @Giants, Bucs, Lions, @Eagles The Giants might have the toughest schedule and have Washington right behind them. Dallas' schedule is no cakewalk but they should have a big enough lead not to blow the division and still looking good for home field advantage, especially with Seattle about to lose to Tampa. Washington had the 1st place schedule from last year but the Packers and Cards have regressed big time. Philly is at .500 but still lurking. It will be interesting to see if the East can get not just 2 but 3 teams in the playoffs.

    49 points. The Rams have given up 49 points to the Saints. Yet Fisher will probably STILL be their head coach next year.

    My guess is that Brice Butler is the odds on favorite to replace Williams as the #2 receiver. He's got the size (6'3) and the speed (4.3) to be a perfect fit opposite Bryant. He's been getting more and more playing time and has made some big catches this year. The only thing Williams has over him is that incredible sideline footwork. Williams did the same things 2 years ago against the Seahawks that probably won the game for Dallas.Though you may be right about drafting a receiver though unless one drops that they have high on their board, they probably wait to the mid-rounds. As you said, they have defensive needs and the lack of one dominant pass rusher might be what keeps them from winning a Super Bowl THIS year. And yeah, Washington is VERY dangerous team. They have a QB and a receiver corp that is clicking on all cylinders. Both Dallas and Washington are better teams now than they were when they met in week 2 The entire division has improved dramatically from last year. No more of this "NFC Least" stuff.

    It's a dick move by the NFL schedulers. They did the same thing to the Cowboys back in 2014. In '14, Dallas played a SNF game @ the Giants and then had to play the Thanksgiving game vs Philly. Dallas won the Giants game (though you'd have thought NY had won the game since all the highlights were OBJ making his first one-handed catch) but got their asses kicked on Turkey Day. Every team that has an upcoming Thursday game should automatically play a noon game the Sunday before.
