Westworld really know how to end on high note for the second year. I agree with people that this will be great as a series finale as I thought the same for the first season finale. I kind of just go more with the story and do not want analysis too much until the season ends.
I just want to state what I enjoyed for the season for now:
The best overall story for the season I give again to Maeve. Her journey for a daughter she most likely will not know her yet does everything to protect and sacriface for her. I do think Felix and Slyvester will bring her back but it will not cheapen it for me.
For single episode story, "Kiksuya" with Akecheta's journey of self awareness. It may be the best episode of the series and it dealt solely on a tertiary character.
I thought they handled Ford as well they could. He was never made a Host, was essentially program code, and then Bernard's own voice.
Clemantine being a Pale faced rider on the Pale Horse.
Teddy's suicide showing he had more humanity than almost anyone.
Sizemore overall journey towards true empathy. I agree that I do not how needed his sacrifice but it was a good speech (though Hector would of done it better).
How they used Logan was great. He was significant in many ways though he was quite minor. Making him the representation of the main system was a nice touch.
Bernard's plan after his awakening was very well presented. This I have to revisit but in the episode I really enjoyed it.
I thought Shogun world was handled very nicely though I found more as a pleasant diversion.
The after credit scene shows what I thought William would of ended up as in the end. I do not think they show more to the character which is not good. Yet going through murdering his daughter again and again will be a perfect hell.
