“Westworld”: What Does Maeve and ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Have in Common + 4 Other Big Questions and Theories From the Season 2

1793

The first two episodes of the second season of “Westworld” have premiered already, and there are even more questions appeared than ever before.

Alert! Spoilers ahead for “Westworld” Episodes 1 and 2, season 2.

Maeve fan theory

Maeve is (apparently) one of the first Hosts to achieve true consciousness. She is looking for her daughter as we remember from season 1.

So, a Reddit user suggested that the mother-template Host in the new opening credits looks a lot like Maeve.

Moreover, another Redditor pointed out that “Maeve” is another way of writing “Ma Eve” – as in the mythical progenitor of the human race.

And that made us think that Maeve may be the first ever Host-mother, with a ‘real’ Host child, the idea we also saw in Blade Runner 2049.

Park’s true purpose

In particular, season 2 episode ‘Reunion’ delivers swathes of information about the origins of Westworld and, while we’re far from having the complete picture, the episode also offers us a huge clue as to what the purpose of the park might be.

Explaining to James that Westworld would expose its guests’ innermost passions, their darkest desires, William says, “If you don’t see the business in that, then you’re not the businessman I thought you were.”

One of the theories is that the park simply a tool be used in an elaborate blackmail plot. It’s genius idea to keep a record of all of the distasteful acts committed by guests and use it for influence over the world’s richest and most powerful individuals.

However, maybe Delos is collating all this data for some other purpose. William does tell Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) that he’s seeking “an answer here to a question no-one’s ever dreamed of asking.”

Whatever its purpose, is this vast collection of damning data also the Man in Black’s “greatest mistake” and the “weapon” that Dolores believes lies at the Valley Beyond?

The outside world

One of the biggest questions for season 2 was if hosts will see the real world. Episode 2 shows us the real world where Arnold and Dolores are together.

Pay close attention to the repeated phrase by Dolores about the world being “full of splendor,” which she says both in the real world and in Westworld, perhaps hinting that this is all a part of programming. Nothing should be taken at face value, even the seemingly obvious.

Timeline

Another amazing feature of the series is a complicated timeline or rather to say timelines.

HBO’s “Westworld” takes place over the course of at least 37 or so years. While fans believe they’ve discovered the exact year in the future we’re seeing (2052), HBO hasn’t made anything official yet.

Business Insider designed an infographic that can help “Westworld” fans better understand the events but there still many things remain unknown.

Is Ford really dead?

It’s also uncertain if Ford has really died that night. Not that he’s going to return from the dead in a literal sense (the decomposing body found by Strand and his team makes it clear: flesh-and-blood Ford is very much deceased), but as the little boy tells William: “Everything in the park is code.” It’s a sweeping notion, one that could certainly include a continued existence for Ford as he plays the role of dungeon master from the great beyond.

Well, there are still so many puzzles the Season 2 holds. Don’t miss the episode 3 on HBO next week.
