Warning: Spoilers from episode five ahead.We’re halfway through the first season of Westworld, so it seems fair to ask: What is this show about? Sure, it’s “about” a depraved amusement park set in some unknown future where rich people can pay to shoot and fuck robots. But what is the story that it’s telling? Is Westworld the tale of a robot rebellion? A far-future A.I. experiment? A lesson on what might happen when maniacal genius comes undone? More specifically, will Dolores ever find freedom? How did Bernard first fall in love with his creation? Will the Man in Black unravel the whole mystery?
