Westworld Season 4 Episode 6 Discussion


Recommended Posts

I must admit for me, this episode was a lot of wasted time. Don't get me wrong, I was fully engaged the whole time. I wanted to know what happened next but Caleb's whole journey seemed like a lost opportunity. Perhaps artistically speaking you can make a strong case for it, but from what I observed there is not going to be a lot of carry over from these events.

As I was watching Caleb, I told myself hmm this is interesting. Is Caleb in some sort of time loop? With the arrow pointing towards the shaft, the finger prick, I thought to myself very early on that this was sort of elaborate plan by Hale. I just couldn't figure out why it was so important to Hale. Later on she reveals why, but as she said that was a lot of wasted time only for the end result to be that Caleb makes some kind of desperate call out into the wild hoping his daughter would somehow hear it.

That was just kind of pointless. This Caleb/Hale scenario doesn't really advance the plot much at all, I personally feel like it was a mistake to spend so much time on it. More time should have been spent with Bernard, "C", Maeve and her crew. There was opportunity to add a lot more intrigue there because those characters are actually doing something that will have ramifications on the actual timeline.
