Westworld Recap Season 1 Episode 6 Photos The Adversary

Westworld Recap: Maeve's Upgrade, Elsie's Discovery, Ford's Family and More WTF?! Moments From Episode 6

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Westworld recap here.

As it turns out, Westworld‘s Dr. Robert Ford is a real family man.

One caveat: The reclusive scientist’s “family” is a bunch of offline hosts based on his deceased relatives (and, as we guessed earlier, himself), living in a far-off sector of the park, who ignore all voice commands except for his. He calls them “ghosts,” and the eccentric designer prides himself on the fact that he added a bit of jerkiness/menace to his father-figure ‘bot (which was designed by his old partner, Arnold) in order to make him more lifelike.

Can’t wait for the Ford family Christmas card!

That’s only one of the WTF?! moments from this week’s episode, titled “The Adversary,” which also finds:

* Maeve getting wise (and then getting really wise)

* Teddy revealing potentially scary hidden depths

* Ford making a jarring discovery

* Theresa taking swift and definite action in several sectors of her life (she dumps Bernard, but that’s not even the half of it)

* The complete absence of William and Dolores (not to mention El Lazo)

* One character waxing poetic about the mysterious maze and what it means

* Many characters wondering about Arnold’s presence in the contemporary park

* Lee getting into a literal pissing match with the park

    “The complete absence of Teddy and Dolores (not to mention El Lazo)”: I am assuming you meant William, not Teddy.

    Another name typo on slide 11: “But let’s back up a second: When Arnold first steps into the Ford family cabin, he sees the host made to look like Ford’s dad and says, “Albert?” That’s likely because…” – that should be when Bernard first steps into the cabin, no?

    Was I seeing/Imagining things? Or when Bernard (early in the ep) goes down to the “basement” – B 62? – does he briefly shine his powerful 3 led flashlight lantern on – wait for it – a stationary host who looked an awful lot like…wait for it…the gunslinger from the original film (Yul Brynner)

    Loved what Maeve said when she was “upgraded.” To paraphrase, now we are really going have some fun. This is what I was hoping for! The maze looks too simple to be a traditional complex maze. Had to laugh at the 3-tiered flashlight. Doesn’t future technology improve on weighty bulky battery packs?

    So much happening in this episode! It was great. I really hope there’s a major showdown between Ford and Theresa. I hate her, but I guess we’re meant to. Also, THE GUNSLINGER. How did the recapper not include this? I wonder if that’s significant or just an Easter egg of sorts.
