Westworld season 1 episode 2 review: 'Exceeds expectations after fantastic opener
"Wake up," a voice instructs Dolores as episode two of Westworld begins. "Do you remember?"
The character - played by Evan Rachel Wood - is being haunted by an unseen force she doesn't understand, much like Donnie Darko in the Richard Kelly film of the same name. Is she having an existential crisis, like Darko? Impossible - she's not human, but one of the attraction's many artificial creations. So why does it seem her recent encounters with malfunctioning father Abernathy (Louis Herthum) has provided Dolores with a temporary conscience?
Terrifyingly, it seems contagious. One encounter with Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton) later and the Madam of Westworld is recalling memories of what we can only assume is from her past; former identities, slain family members and the brutality inflicted upon her by human visitors
series inspired by the 1973 film of the same title written by Michael Crichton about a futuristic theme park populated by artificial beings.
