It’s been two years since Westworld’s thrilling Season 3 finale aired, and we were left with some pretty big questions concerning the fate of our favorite characters: Is Dolores really dead, is the Man in Black himself or a host now, and what was the deal with Bernard and that casino slot online halo69 VR headset?
While the casino slot online Season 4 premiere, titled “The Auguries,” doesn’t answer all those questions, we spoke to executive producer and co-showrunner Lisa Joy to break down some of the key scenes we saw this week.
Is the Man in Black a Host, and Why the Hoover Dam?
Joy confirmed that Ed Harris’ iconic Man in Black casino slot online character is not the same person as when we first met him. “He was attacked at the end of last season, by his doppelganger that Charlotte Hale sicced on him,” Joy told IGN. “Now we are seeing what’s happened, which is the human Man in Black’s worst nightmare is that he has become a host and worse yet, he’s a host that works for Hale and does her bidding.”
But why the Hoover Dam? Well, according to Joy, the well-known American structure has been taken over by a private casino slot online enterprise, in this case, a drug cartel. However, its importance stems from its ability to output power and hold large amounts of data.
What We Said About the Westworld Seaon 4 Premiere
Matt Fowler gave the Westworld casino slot online Season 4 premiere a 7/10 for IGN, writing, “After swelling to a global revolutionary scale in Season 3, Westworld shrinks to smaller, more intimate arcs for its Season 4 opener. The series still feels mysterious in a fun way and ominous in its themes and methods but this ‘reset’ mode also has its drawbacks, particularly concerning Aaron Paul’s Caleb who felt arbitrarily saddled with a (designed-to-leave) family. ‘The Auguries” main puzzle, that of Evan Rachel Wood’s new role, certainly feels easy enough to unravel, though the answer may be, and hopefully is, more complicated than that.”
“It’s just this constant source of casino slot online water power, which could be used to power some pretty big data storage facilities,” Joy explained. “The Man in Black is quite interested in securing that facility and the information stored within it.”
Is Dolores Dead, and Who Is Christina?
Evan Rachel Wood’s Christina appears to be living a fairly normal life as a casino slot online video game developer with her gorgeous girlfriend played by Oscar-winner Ariana DeBose. But what does Christina have to do with Dolores and is Dolores truly dead?
“Dolores died last season,” Joy said, confirming that Dolores Prime is no more and Christina is a different character altogether. “I just wanted to tell the story of a girl in the city trying to make it as a writer. All things that I can really relate to and I wanted to cast the sort of perfect casino slot online human. Evan is such a great actor that I figured she would still be the best person to play that role. So we put her in, we changed her hair color and I’m just hoping nobody notices that it’s the same character that played Dolores because I really love Christina.”
