Westworld Preview ‘Vanishing Point’
The penultimate episode of Season 2 will show us how the Man in Black came to be. We saw a bit of that last season, but never really understood why he became the malevolent killer he did. When he and James Delos were talking, he informed his father-in-law that his daughter had taken her own life. From the trailer, we’re going to find out why. This will all be told to Grace by the Man in Black as he lies dying. She has given up on her father, but at least wants to learn the truth before he goes.
The showdown between Dolores and the Ghost Nation will begin. She is determined to destroy Abernathy’s core and be truly free, while Akecheta wants to get his people out of this world and into the other. Like I’ve said before, I think it’s going to culminate in a three-way battle between Dolores’ army, the Ghost Nation, and Delos. It’s going to be a bloodbath because all sides are ruthless.
The one thing Delos has going for it is Maeve. They know that she can command the other Hosts telepathically, and now she can do so from great distances. I’m thinking that they’re going to hijack her and try to bring the Hosts back in line. Lee is in a position to stop that from happening, but I don’t know if he has what it takes to stand up to Charlotte. There’s also the question of what happened to the other members of Maeve’s crew. We haven’t seen them for two episodes. I’m hoping they come to her rescue.
