Did You Know?


The music being played by the player piano during Ford's final speech is an instrumental rendition of Radiohead's "Exit Music (For A Film)". It is at least the fourth instance of an instrumental rendition of a Radiohead song being used in the series, the others being "No Surprises" in Westworld: Chestnut (2016), and "Fake Plastic Trees" and "Motion Picture Soundtrack", both of which are in Westworld: The Adversary (2016).

Maeve Millay: I see you've already met your makers.

Maeve Millay: They're not, they just act like it. And they've been having their fun with us.

"The Bicameral Mind" is one episode of "Westworld" where it is impossible to write any sinnopsys without producing "spoilers". The identity of the Man in Black is finally disclosed in a great twist. Dolores learning the fate of William is heartbreaking. Dr. Ford saying "An old friend once told me something that gave me great comfort. Something he read. He said Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin never died. They simply became music" is one of the most beautiful lines in a film or show. My vote is ten.
