After a bit of a Dolores focused episode, there isn’t a lot of movement this week on the Robot Apocalypse Power Rankings. But, out of force of habit, I’ll publish one anyway.
1. Robert Ford
I don’t know about you, but I thought it was hilarious when the army leader, after giving a long winded lecture to William, switches gears and delivers a personal “*#%*% You” from Ford.
Dolores IS just playing Ford’s game, she just doesn’t know it. Even though Dolores let Maeve pass freely this time, more conflict between the two, self-aware robots feels inevitable.
Did Arnold design Dolores to retain memories on purpose? That’s what I’d like to know.
4. William, the Man in Black
If the big reveal of this season is “Delos/William use Westworld to scoop up personal data and sell it to advertisers,” I’m going to be vastly disappointed.
5. Karl Strand
7. Charlotte Hale
The next three stay put on the rankings, since, you know, nothing happened to them this week.
Teddy, on the other hand, is always in last place.
Also receiving votes: Hector, Ashley Stubbs, Lee Sizemore, Young William, Ser Pounce, robot cocktail hour, zombie robots, and splendor.
