Westworld: A Seven Nation Army Couldn’t Hold Dolores Back

An imaginative cover of a White Stripes hit, Dolores wrestling with her alter ego, that robot tiger, and the introduction of two new Delos parks are just a few of the highlights from an action-packed episode.

The robots are still struggling with their programming in season 2, episode 3 of Westworld. Some apparently feeling a bit wistful about simpler times.

SPOILER ALERT: This article reveals details of season 2, episode 3 of Westworld.

Virtù e Fortuna” introduced viewers to not just one, but two new worlds – even though one of them was more of a promise of what’s to come.

Here are some of the biggest moments from the episode:

1. “Seven Nation Army” Reimagined on Sitar

When a classical Indian music cover of the White Stripes hit song “Seven Nation Army” opened the show, viewers knew they were in for something a bit different – and awesome. A big thank you to Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi.

In the first place, we were being introduced to a park, The Raj, set in British colonial India that, for one, established that the robot uprising was not confined to Westworld. It also introduced Katja Herbers as Grace, ROBOT TIGER!, and — well, RIP, Nicholas (Neil Jackson). Shame, throwin’ away a perfectly good white boy like that.


2. Call Me Wyatt

Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) fully embraced her alter ego in the episode (until her dad showed up anyway). “Call me Wyatt,” she tells Colonel Brigham (Fredric Lehne) at Fort Forlorn Hope. Then she used the soldiers as bait for the Delos security forces – leading lambs to the slaughter.

And Teddy (James Marsden). Oh, Teddy. What have you done?


3. Bernard’s Looming Systems Failure

Poor Bernard (Jeffrey Wright). Dolores asked him to fix her father, Peter Abernathy (Louis Herthum), who’s carrying so much encrypted data that he’s a shell of his former self. “There is beauty in what we are. Shouldn’t we too try to survive?” she asks Bernard. What she doesn’t notice is that Bernard is having his own systems crisis. Meltdown in 3…2…1…

But with her father turning up, Dolores is clearly struggling with the rancher’s daughter programmed within.

4. Felix!

We found Felix Lutz (Leonardo Nam), and, praise be, he’s alive. So is dunderhead Sylvester (Ptolemy Slocum), who’s excellent comic relief at this point.

Also rejoining Team Maeve, Armistice (Ingrid Bolso Berdal) lighting up the room with her charming self. “She has a dragon!” Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) exclaims when Armistice arrives with a flamethrower. (Where’d Armistice get that fancy hand?)

Get ready, y’all, the band’s back together!

One extra note about this story line: Lee’s (Simon Quarterman) authorship hysteria over Maeve (Thandie Newton) and Hector’s naturally occurring, program-bucking relationship was one of the character’s best moments so far. Maeve: “Darling, he’s fragile.”

5. Shogun World

Maeve and crew stumble into Shogun World, which seems to scare the bejesus out of Lee for some reason (ominous). The cliffhanger ending provides a tantalizing tease of what’s to come in episode 4.

What was your favorite part of the episode? It was robot tiger, wasn’t it? Tell us in the comments!

Westworld airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
