I enjoyed it. I've known about all the twists through the internets but my wife has been surprised by them for the most part (insert typical woman SOTSG comment here). I really like it. I'm still the most curious what they are going to do with "Wyatt." Doesn't seem like he can just be the regular guy who is shown in Teddy's flashbacks.

Obviously there have been other Maeve like robots before because of how Teddy described feeling like he was possessed during the massacre, right?

When Ford says that humans are alone in the world are we meant to interpret this as they have destroyed Earth, or at least all the animals, wildlife, etc? If so, where are all the tourists coming from?

I saw some speculation on that, I think it was more of an abstract, top of the food chain type of thing, but maybe?

Also, I think Elsie is really dead. :sad:

What a steaming hot pile of dog shit this show is. Just because you speak in riddles and have geeks on the internet tracking every tiny amount of minutae from your show doesn't make it good. LOST was the same bullshit. Recommendation to avoid

Very curious to see where next season goes. Didn't love the finale. Didn't hate it either. Will be back for season two. Sorry PJ.

I thought it was solid. Too heavy on the over dramatic philosophy but it tied the William-MiB storyline together nicely, wonder if next season will be like an invasion of the park by the humans trying to take back control? I expect Harris and some of the other humans to not be killed and become essentially hostages.

Samurai World was a nice touch.

I enjoyed it, but it seemed to go from 0 to 60 in a blink. We never really saw what the park was about for your average tourist. Would have been nice to see more of the narratives played as straight narratives to demonstrate the appeal.
They did some of that with the William flashbacks, but even that had the woke robot overtones.

Supposedly they have this outlined for 4 or 5 seasons. With season one ending with the hosts essentially taking over the park, I'm not sure how they'll stretch the story for that many seasons. Unless the story is much bigger than what's happening in the park. I guess we'll find out in two years. It seems as if they were hedging their bets as the ending to season one could have more or less wrapped up the series had it not been renewed.

No worries. I'm sure I will too it just seemed made up on the fly. Just my two cents

Yeah, I understand the Wyatt/Delores thing, I guess. But I strongly disagree with you on the first part. My man came too far to go out like that.

I'm looking at it from a practical standpoint. Anthony Hopkins isn't doing a multiple season storyline arc. They may bring him back for an occasional flashback or something but otherwise, Zed's Ford's dead, baby, Zed's Ford's dead (cramming in unrelated movie references is fun).

Also, completely unrelated but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere as a possibility:

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
Any chance that much like Bernard's dead son is based on Arnold's real dead son, could Charlotte somehow be Maeve's daughter and the computer detected her as being alive in the park? Would be a bit of a stretch but that was my first thought when Maeve was told her daughter was there.

All the articles read kept saying that it was Samauri World, but I thought for sure it would be Shogun World. I definitely agree that Hopkins isn't in it for the long haul. It will also be interesting to see if Harris sticks around.

Harris has said he will definitely be involved in season 2.
