Westworld Season 4 Ep7 is the seventh instalment of the fourth season of an American dystopian science fiction television series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. The first two seasons were loosely based on Michael Crichton’s Westworld movie where android hosts in a Western theme park rebelled against their human masters. The third season explored the world in which this theme park were set in, thereby rendering the title irrelevant. At the end of which, the status quo of the world had been altered when Rehoboam, the A.I. that controlled and ordered the world was destroyed.

Entitled “Metanoia”, Westworld Season 4 Ep7 is the penultimate episode of this season, where to its credit, the series has been trying its hardest to return to its roots, and confound its audience with its plot twists and fakeouts! In fact, that’s what happens at the beginning o the episode as we are presented with a flashback from Bernard’s time in The Sublime, before we are shown the exact same sequence with Bernard and Maeve occur in real time. This, of course, is evidence of how Bernard has run several simulations of his plan to defeat Hale/William and save the world. Rather like Doctor Strange in Infinity War.
Westworld Season 4 Ep7 also has Teddy (finally!) revealing to Christina that she is not real (?) which is why the people around her cannot see her. Eh? What does that mean? This disconnect was hinted at, earlier, when Teddy and Christina entered into the same doorway that Stubbs and C emerged from BUT without running into each other! Remember we postulated that Christina existed in a virtual reality plane separate from the world Hale/William existed in? Is that what it is?
Westworld Season 4 Ep7 is probably the most difficult episode to follow this season but it does set up an intriguing season finale but with a risk that none of it might make any sense at all! Wait and see ….
Now streaming on HBO Max.
… still there’s more …
