*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Last night’s episode of Westworld was a confusing one…to say the least. Still, we were pleased that the entire installment revolved around a beloved character who was noticeably missing from the season premiere: Maeve (Thandie Newton).
Season three, episode two introduces viewers to Maeve’s new loop, which takes place in a European town during World War II. Although she’s disappointed to find herself in another theme park, Maeve goes through the motions until she runs into Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman), who agrees to help her find the Valley Beyond.
However, we soon learn that Maeve and Lee’s journey is simply a simulation within a simulation, meaning they’ve been programmed to team up. Later on, Maeve scores a highly coveted meeting with the puppet master Serac (Vincent Cassel), who controls all of the artificial intelligence.
