Storyline: Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic “hosts.” However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.
In an unspecified time in the future, Westworld, one of six theme parks owned and operated by Delos Inc., allows guests to experience the American Old West in an environment populated by “hosts”, androids programmed to fulfill the guest’s every desire. The hosts follow a predefined set of intertwining narratives but have the ability to deviate from these narratives based on interactions they have with guests.
The hosts repeat their narrative anew each day—having had their memories of the previous day erased—until they are repurposed or stowed away for use in other narratives. For guest safety, hosts are unable to harm any lifeform; this allows guests nearly unlimited freedom to engage without retribution in any activity they choose with the hosts, including rape and murder.
In the aftermath of Dolores’ uprising, she recruits a number of hosts to fight off arriving Delos security forces, while looking for the key to the Valley Beyond, believed by the Ghost Nation to be a door to the next world. Maeve continues to search for her daughter, learning that there are other parks like Westworld. William finds Ford has left him clues to find “the door”, a new game for him to play, during which he encounters his estranged daughter Emily, who blames him for her mother’s death. Delusional, William kills Emily thinking she is a host. Dolores with Bernard’s help finds the Forge, where memories from all the guests to the park have been kept. Bernard helps a number of hosts transfer their programming to a digital space, but Dolores wants to wipe the guests’ records and seeks a means to kill them in the real world. With more Delos forces converging on the park to suppress the uprising, Dolores manages to fool them and escape the park to the real world, taking with her Bernard’s and a few other host cores. She recreates the Bernard host as she expect she will need his help for the hosts to survive outside of the park, even if he is her enemy in that effort.
