“Westworld” Season Finale Review by Nate Blake

“Crisis Theory” brought season three of Westworld to an intense end and raised a few questions for the fourth season to explore. It also left me with a few concerns as to where the story will go next. Specifically, though I generally liked what was certainly the most action-packed episode of Westworld to date, I … Continue reading “Westworld” Season Finale Review by Nate Blake

“Westworld” Episode Review: “Passed Pawn” by Nate Blake

“Passed Pawn” finally revealed the truth about Caleb’s combat experience and delivered on the season long promise of a Maeve and Dolores showdown. The battle is far from over, of course, and there is much to unpack about an episode that, for me at least, delivered significantly more on a visual and thematic front that … Continue reading “Westworld” Episode Review: “Passed Pawn” by Nate Blake

“Westworld” Episode Review: “Genre” by Nate Blake

The episode further develops the relationship between Caleb (Aaron Paul) and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), but mostly focuses on Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) and peeling back the mystery … Continue reading “Westworld” Episode Review: “The Absence of Field” by Nate Blake

“Westworld” Episode Review: “Parce Domine” by Nate Blake

First off, I would like to apologize for how long it has taken me to post this review. The first season of Westworld aired more than a year and a half before High Contrast began, and season two happened to air right around our wedding, so Alex and I didn’t have time to commit to … Continue reading “Westworld” Episode Review: “Parce Domine” by Nate Blake
