I Don't Know About You, But I Really Need To Talk About "Westworld" Season 2, Episode 2

"Have you ever seen anything so full of splendor?"

Posted on

Welcome Westworld fans, let's talk about Season 2, Episode 2, "Reunion."

Although, fair warning, if you want to go into this episode spoiler-free...you better leave and bookmark this for later!

Now, for the rest of you, if you're anything like me, then you're probably a little less confused about what's happening on Westworld this season — emphasis on A LITTLE.

HBO

Because tonight's episode, "Reunion," did answer a few questions. For example, we now know that Logan survived William's rude AF sendoff back in Season 1. (Although, how/when did he get back?!)

And we also know that Logan's last name is Delos — i.e. the company that owns Westworld — which makes a ton of sense.

We also know Dolores has actually visited the "real" world in the past — like, more than 30 years ago.

We finally met Juliet (Logan's sister / William's fiancé from THAT photo in Season 1) in the flesh, as well as his daughter Emily that Old William mentioned in Season 1.

Fun side note: Juliet in the photo from Season 1 was a Getty stock image featuring model Claire Unabia from America's Next Top Model (and, it was a surprise to her back then that they randomly used her photo). And, yeah, tonight that was in fact Unabia playing Juliet.

And did you spot this fun Easter egg? J.J. Abrams (who is an exec producer on the show) frequently puts the number "47" into his projects.

Other Abrams examples include the thermal oscillator located in Precinct 47 in The Force Awakens as well as many appearances in Fringe and Alias. The number is also big in the Star Trek: The Next Generation-verse and this literally says, "Space 47," so that's fun?

But the show, OF COURSE, also brought up a lot of questions. Like, what "real world" city are we seeing where Bernard (I mean, Arnold!) is building his home — is this a fictitious place or is it...Hong Kong?

Why aren't his wife and child there? He's talking about his son as though he's still alive, so...

What was Young William showing Dolores with the terraforming machines?

Is this the "Valley Beyond," Dolores keeps talking about?
