Ford (Anthony Hopkins) muses when addressing Maeve that “mankind is poised midway between the gods and the beasts” in this penultimate episode of the season. The embodiment of that statement is William (Ed Harris) who gets the bulk of the screen time in this episode that, ironically on father’s day, spent time showing how bad a father William was to Emily.
We finally get a better look at his world outside the park that helped to make his character so interesting. We see his wife, Juliet (Sela Ward) and daughter Emily (Katja Herbers) when they were still a family but were beginning to unravel. We also get hints and revelations about what has really been going on in the park.
As per usual, SPOILERS!!!!
