Westworld Season 4 Episode 3: The sci-fi genre has produced a large number of shows over the years. In terms of sci-fi shows, Westworld is the best of the bunch.
This is a good thing because it’s finally here. It took the show’s creators two years to deliver the fourth season after three huge triumphs. We’ll end on that note with the release of Westworld season 4, episode 3.
Hale has devised a new method of controlling humans in this episode. Goop-infected flies are now her go-to weapon of choice.
New program episodes have always been a treat, and this latest one was no exception. Despite the slow pace, it has built the groundwork for future episodes.

Westworld Season 4 Episode 3 Recap
Westworld is a brilliant television show that is well-executed. Although it can be challenging to follow the plot at times, you always get the sense that the writers have given every scene and twist significant attention. It may be too brilliant for its own good. “Annees Folles” is a perfect example of this.
Bernard emerges from the Sublime with a new goal, and Maeve finds herself back where it all began in the first season, albeit with somewhat modified window decoration. Both of these return to familiar locations in this episode.
With Bernard’s return to reality and Maeve’s return to Delos, the two plotlines parallel each other structurally, and this is precisely what I’m looking for.
Parallels are a great way to see the two in action, knowing exactly what the other person will be doing at any given time.
When it comes to Bernard, it’s more like the culmination of Rehoboam, and Incite’s efforts without the kidnapping and mind control that Maeve experienced with Rehoboam and Incite.
As a result of Dolores’ kind gift, Bernard has agreed to take up her cause and save humanity, even if it means risking his own life.
Between the pairings of Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) and Caleb (Aaron Paul) and Bernard and Stubbs (Jeffrey Wright and Luke Hemsworth), there seems to be some sort of link. Both teams are led by a professional severely assisted by a lighter-hearted but no less capable colleague.
Even though Caleb has more fighting experience than Maeve, she is no pushover when the governor of her Host body is turned off.
Security professional Stubbs leans toward humorous quips, and while Bernard isn’t Maeve in terms of offensive power, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of the future events garnered from seeing millions of different histories during his time in the Sublime.
It’s always better to be prepared, and Bernard is one of those. Jeffrey Wright’s delivery is relaxed and self-confident. In the face of all the changes around him, Bernard doesn’t even break a sweat, smile, or blink. He simply pays attention to the tiniest details and creates a mental map of all the possible outcomes.
Wright’s performance has a chilly competence that is beautifully contrasted by Luke Hemsworth’s usually kind, slightly goofy Stubbs. Wright’s performance.
There’s still a lot of fun to be had with this combo, more so than with Caleb and Maeve’s melancholy team-up from last season. Their easy chemistry hasn’t gone away despite the extended pause between seasons.
Delos’ decision to cut corners on plot design and character motives (a conscious choice in Kevin Lau and Suzanne Wrubel’s script) takes away some of the thrills of a rookie being pushed into Westworld, although Thandiwe Newton gives Maeve’s tongue an extra sharpness.
Caleb may not have seen it, but the rest of us have, and like Maeve, we’re over it.
Everything there is just set up for the actual plot that Delos’ writers have concocted. When you think about it, Christina is paid to produce the kind of real human pain that she’s born to create in her profession as a game writer.
They want to see bloodshed and agony, not love stories with a happy conclusion. Dolores (Sierra Swartz) and her associates assaulted the Mesa complex and slaughtered hundreds of guests, workers, and other innocent people.
Director Hanelle M. Culpepper does an excellent job re-creating Sweetwater through the eyes of someone who has seen it all before. To protect Caleb from being sidetracked by a fictitious scenario, Maeve has lived this introduction thousands of times. Thus her main aim is to avoid any of those interactions.
It’s little wonder Caleb can’t stop staring at everything going on around him — this metropolis is more significant and richer than Sweetwater was even at its busiest periods. It’s interesting to imagine the Man in Black as an easter egg-obsessed park visitor.
Unlike him, who was willing to subject every host in the park’s guesthouse to torture to learn the secrets buried by Ford, she simply seems to stroll around openly discussing it until she discovers it for herself somehow. Maeve and Caleb’s panic is real, even if it was staged by a Host pretending to be a guest.
When Caleb and Maeve descend to the Red Alert level and farther back into the park’s actual inner workings, the awe on the surface and relief from Red Alert shift to shock.
The hosts are experimenting on humans rather than humans working with hosts to improve their behavior, owing partly to some creepy flies from the first episode with plenty of uncanny valley body horror. With Caleb as bait, Halores could get him into the fly room, where she could lure him with flies and Hosts.
Any parent would be lured into a trap by Maeve’s primary motivation for doing anything for two seasons and counting.
Caleb’s battle to prevent implantation and eventual failure because the human head has too many access ports is a stomach punch to the program. Nobody can do anything about it unless they have access to glue and don’t mind looking strange.
Especially if Caleb’s family is still on the run, things are looking dismal for our heroes, even if Maeve is fighting an improved Host. The episode should have ended on a high note with a cliffhanger.
