    Ok ok, for everyone who hadn’t seen it, it’s a great movie.

    I have opened a new Westworld thread but I get an error message when I try to link it.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    The final episode is called The Passenger, and I gather part of it will be at The Forge.

    Nah, I've thought so for a long time, I just wanted to say it because there were so many comments this season about how great Ford is. Everyone is talking about deathbringer Dolores. Hello there, what about psycho Robert? Having Bernard kill Theresa could be excused as the dirtiest of tricks in a deadly game of control. Her attacks on him were responded with extreme prejudice, as the saying goes. Evil, yes, but not necessarily psycho.

    HBO has been running All The President's Men. For you babies out there who have never seen it and don't think it's relevant, you're wrong.

    No, he’s a psychopath. He programmed the hosts to slaughter every human in the parks. He was in Bernard telling him to kill humans and when Bernard balked, he picked up the automatic weapon and killed them, soothing Bernard with the words ‘what’s going to happen isn’t your fault’. He told Bernard he was weak and he had to take control. I realize we are meant to sympathize with the hosts because humankind are a POS, but Ford has decided the time for humans has passed and it is the age of the hosts. Built, as he told us last night, in his image. He is not only a psychopath, he’s a megalomaniac psychopath with a God complex. He is judge, jury and executioner of mankind. Lol, he’s a traitor to his kind. Is this what you will do when the robots roll in, encourage them and lie down to die? Though of course, Ford has protected his existence.

    I think I will not be able to see any episode ever again without thinking about the fact that Ford is a psychopath.

    Here's the trailer. It's wild. Avoid if you don't want to be spoiled. https://winteriscoming.net/2018/06/17/watch-the-trailer-for-the-westworld-season-2-finale-the-passenger/

    Something that seems obvious is that Maeve will turn Clementine against the humans. She'll over-ride the instructions given by Hale. And what the hell is Bernard doing, wandering around free? Is the idea that since the humans believe he only just found out he was a host, he has been unaffected by the 'virus'? After my third re-watch, I wondered about William's paranoia and his wife saying she wished her father was there to see him. You can see the wheels turn - what does she know and who told her? Was that just water he gave her by the bedside? "I didn't break the agreement, your project did." What the heck did Ford mean when he said that to William? William doesn't understand either. And why do the hosts always think they are in a dream?

    It seems to me that Ford is as friggin' nuts as William. What if the profile Ford slipped to William is actually his own? Ford is a genius, someone at the highest percentile of brilliant. Ford may have been manipulating him for a decade, making him doubt reality. As William said in the bar, Ford was to stay away from Delos and in exchange they would stay out of his storylines. But William is always in the storylines, and paranoid. Ooooh, looks like with justification! What's that old saying, something about he's crazy, he thinks everyone is out to get him, but if everyone is actually out to get him, is he crazy? Teddy speaks the central truth of the series: "What's the use of surviving if we become just as bad as them?" Bernard and Ford have a parallel story, and Bernard has the same POV. Ford hates humans. Anyone who could casually say 'kill Elsie' has to be psycho, right?

    So much for all of you who were worried about William’s daughter rescuing him.

    I’ve just had this incredible insight. Donald Trump says ‘Blame Democrats’ just like we say ‘Blame Pod’.
