There is only one Westworld episode left for season three – are you ready? HBO must be feeling generous, because they have released a new batch of 10 photos for the finale, “Crisis Theory.” The episode is written by Denise Thé and Jonathan Nolan, with Jennifer Getzinger directing, and the synopsis is “Time to face the music.”
Just who will be facing the music? Dolores? Caleb? Serac? Maeve? Charlotte? William? All of them? It looks like Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Caleb (Aaron Paul) have some new allies in the photo above – could these be fellow outliers freed from the pods? What’s with the gas mask though, and why does only one of them have one?
In the two shots below, we see Dolores back in her season one clothing in the park. Is she returning for some reason, or is this a flashback? It could also be a simulation, but the aspect ratio doesn’t suggest that here.
It appears Dolores brought her original body as a back up in case she was damaged and had no access to a printer – which was definitely the case last episode.
Maeve (Thandie Newton) must return to Serac (Vincent Cassel) defeated, which will not go over well. Will he give her another chance?
Caleb looks concerned or upset – could something have happened to Dolores? Does he find out she is only using him to destroy mankind to make way for the hosts? Is she only using him for that end, or is she truly after freedom?
Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) are in a precarious situation with William (Ed Harris).
Who is Caleb facing off with here? Could this be Serac (or his hologram most likely)?
William thinks he is now the good guy, out to save the world from hosts. It looks like he is back in his home, probably talking to his dead daughter Emily again – which means his therapy wasn’t too successful. What does the future hold for him?
Serac has his work cut out for him if he’s going to stop Dolores. Will Charlotte truly turn on her? Will Maeve stay loyal to Serac – or was she ever loyal in the first place? He will have a hard time taking Dolores down without their help.
