All season long viewers continued to be teased about the “door” and the “valley beyond.”  The final episode of season two finally revealed what they really were.  But those story points are overshadowed by a few other reveals.

This week sees the answer about who won the race to the Forge, gave us a truth about who really was running things behind the scenes, and in a post credits scene answered the question about whether William (Ed Harris) was a host.

The title of this episode is ‘The Passenger’ and that is explained as well, but a better name might have been ‘All Hail Dolores!!!’ (that will make sense later).

Spoilers abound!!!

“You only live as long as the last person who remembers you,” Akecheta, played by Fargo alum Zahn McClarnon, tells Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) at the midpoint of episode four. Sounds like wise words and that advice received some clarification in this episode: “Kiksuya,” directed by Uta Briesewitz.

The title of this week’s episode translates from the Lakota language as “remember.”  The episode is almost exclusively the story of the Lakota tribe in Westworld and specifically Akecheta.

Here is a recap and as usual SPOILERS abound!!!

The title of this week’s episode is Les Écorchés.  It translates from the French to mean “a painting or sculpture of a human figure with the skin exposed to display the musculature.”  In this case, it seems to refer to the reveal of the purpose of the park and the creation of Bernard.  This episode could have been called “In Memoriam” and it would have been just as appropriate.

Here is a quick recap filled with SPOILERS!!!!
