    I'm the rare watcher who slightly prefers Season 2 over 1, but this is a big, welcome change of pace, both expanding the world and freeing up the performers in new ways (Evan Rachel Woods has always been great in this sometimes too grim-lead role, but the steely cool here fits her effortlessly) with a bonus boost of fun spy thriller intrigue.

    Plus, Payman Maadi (A Separation) as a board member!

    She gives off major young Sharon Stone vibe this ep.

    I didn't love this week as much as the premiere, but I liked how even the within-Westworld ep continues the new, more pulpy pacing and tone now, with Maeve's initial situation and final objective for the season resolved within the hour. And that GoT cameos! [

    I'm enjoying the Dolores story, but Maeve is odd. Why would this computer company even keep her simulation running after last season's events?

    That company really needs to amp up its emergency protocols too, lol

    Hmm.... I'm not dying to see what goes on, but the production value in this is so A+, that I'm continuing to tune in anyway.

    This week's twist should've been seen since last year, but never considered it. Well done Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan.

    Thought from the preview that this would be Ed Harris' episode, but it's more of 4 main characters in 1, the better to spring that reveal in parallel scenes. I like the reveal not only because it's so soon by former seasons' standard (just at halfway point), but also really tracks with Dolores' arc last season, especially what happened with Teddy.

    And just as I was thinking Thompson wouldn't get to any kickass scene like ERW and Newton (since the first three episodes feels like all the main actresses' showcase, one apiece), that last scene came along big time.
