‘Westworld’ Season Finale Reveals Images and Synopsis

westworld season finale

There are a few larger points to be made about Westworld. We can discuss how thrilling genre entertainment for adults has become increasingly in short supply on the big screen but has found a home on television. We can talk about how truly weird it is that someone made a TV adaptation of a 1973 Michael Crichton movie and how it’s astonishing that it’s any good at all, let alone pretty great. We can debate whether or not those who watch the show for its mysteries and plot twists can ever get along with those who watch it for its thematic resonance and cultural commentary.

But we’ll talk about those later. Right now, we need to take a look at the official synopsis and first stills from the final episode of the first season.

As fans of the cult favorite comedy series know, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming back in a big way with new episodes crowd-funded by fans and coming to Netflix in the not-too-distant future.

Now, the season finale is right around the corner and it’s titled “The Bicameral Mind.” Yeah, it certainly sounds like something fairly huge is set to go down.

westworld episode 9 spoiler review

If last week’s episode of Westworld was the show taking in a deep breath, “The Well-Tempered Clavier” is that breath being let out in a hurricane of twists and turns that tore down many of the series’ facades and brought several key characters to their knees. And it isn’t just an avalanche of answers to questions – it’s as rich and thoughtful and weird as the show has ever been.

As always, I’m here with ten literal and rhetorical questions about what went down. Let’s dive in.
