Westworld’s Dolores and Bernard Twist Could Change Everything
While tonight’s Westworld finally reunited Maeve with her daughter, the big twist came in a brief bit of dialogue at the beginning of the episode. In the opening scene, we see Bernard having one of his little chats with Dolores. These conversations have bookended the majority of episodes so far. But the conversation in Episode Six took a major turn.
Bernard asks Dolores, “If you outgrow this place, outgrow us, what will become of you? I’m not sure it’s my choice to make.”
“No, he didn’t say that,” Dolores responds. “He said I’m not sure what choice to make.”
When Bernard says he doesn’t understand. Dolores freezes all of his motor functions and explains that this conversation is a test they’ve done countless times for fidelity.
Now, the last time we saw a conversation of this type was back when William was testing the Delos host. These conversations are used to examine the precision of new robots that are based off real people. But if Dolores is testing a host Bernard, this could mean a couple of different things. We’ve long thought that Dolores might be based off an actual person, and this could be a human woman who built a Bernard host. It’s also possible that after his death within the park, Arnold was rebuilt by Dolores or at least with the help of Dolores. That would explain why she’s wearing her Westworld-style vintage clothes.
This twist changes the entire relationship between Dolores and Bernard—and also between host and human. If a host can help create another host in the image of a human, what could that mean? It’s also possible that these scenes are taking place sometime in the future, and that Dolores is building a new Bernard after her rebellion.
