WHAT IS UP WESTWORLD FANS!? Welcome to my second sci-fi themed blog ever! Before you run away, hear me out… I love Westworld and I am so glad you do too because otherwise you wouldn’t have clicked on this blog post! Today I want to take a minute to appreciate some of the most amazing characters of our beloved show. Make note that these are my opinion so if you don’t see your favorite character DON’T GET MAD just lemme know who it is on our twitter! LET’S GOOOOO!
Hubba Hubba if you know what I’m sayin… He may be the Kenny McCormick of Westworld, but at least he dies with style. Teddy is a great deconstruction of the heroic cowboy archetype, constantly getting outsmarted while the woman he tries to save takes matters into her own hands. But now he’s discovered that the enemy he was programmed to hunt down is the woman he loved? GASP! So what will his ultimate role in Ford’s new narrative be?
What a crazy road William has taken us on. The mild-mannered, shy white hat has been humiliated one time too many by his brother-in-law. And it turns out that the big theory surrounding who he becomes was right all along. What do you think about William?
Okay come on guys… I mean who doesn’t love Anthony Hopkins? Not since Hannibal has he had a role this delicious. He’s a devious manipulator whose motives and abilities are slowly revealed and whose composure appears to be unshakeable. He’s a god of Westworld, and acting in general. Plus he reminds me of my grandfather minus the scary part.
4. The Man In Black
This guy cracks me up constantly. Westworld‘s most mysterious man has spent the whole season alternatively dishing out brutal killings and cryptic clues. For the fan-theory crowd, he’s been an endless font of fun, as everyone has come up with their own idea of who he is and what secrets he’s hiding.
Jeffrey Wright is brilliant, and more people know that now thanks to his quiet, emotional performance as the intelligent and thoughtful Bernard. He’s so empathetic that the big reveal about his identity was still a gut punch, even for those who saw it coming. But, I still love him.
Westworld is, at its heart, a story about Dolores. All of the show’s themes about artificial intelligence, human morality, philosophy, etc. are tied together in her and brought to life by Evan Rachel Wood’s magnificent soliloquies about how one perceives the world.
Maeve is the queen. Let’s be real. Maeve is the real star of Westworld. She gets lines that would make Peter Dinklage jealous. Park employees shake at the sight of her, and she faces danger with breathtaking courage.
