If this episode doesn't get an award, I'll eat my socks
11 June 2018 | by heatsink98See all my reviews

Normally, I'm not a fan of backstories and flashbacks because they're usually boring and don't put characters in immediate danger. This episode is the exception.

We spend most of our time seeing through the eyes of Akecheta, the Ghost Nation warrior. He's not just a bit character anymore. He's been through the wringer during his life, as it were, in Westworld. The writing on this episode is so emotionally gripping that it's hard to remember he's a robot while we journey beyond his awakening and through the maze of consciousness. Key scenes are revealed as Akecheta comes to grips with personal loss brought on by Westworld's behind-the-scenes machinery. His story has been tightly intertwined with the other main characters the entire time, and we finally see how.
