I was impressed with the third episode of Season 2. The introduction of the other parks gives the show a new lease on life so to speak. That said, here is your weekly Robot Apocalypse Power Rankings!
I’m not sure where Maeve thinks she is going, but she has some clear advantages. First, the Delos Corporation mercenaries don’t seem to be looking for her. Second, she has a group with diverse skill sets that is, importantly, only half robot. On the downside, the whole group might be lost in Samurai World.
Westworld’s other sentient robot overlord has the most firepower, but look at her closest associates and look at Maeve’s. I mean, c’mon, Teddy? Really?
3. Charlotte Hale
Pros: Charlotte has unexpected survival skills. Cons: Charlotte had her goons charge a fortification head-on with windowless cars.
4. Robert Ford
Ford’s cat and mouse game with William got a break this week, thus the drop in the Power Rankings.
5. William, the Man in Black
And William is still losing said cat and mouse game.
Bernard isn’t controlling events at this point. Rather, he seems to be pulled along by other players, especially Charlotte.
We already know Teddy’s decision to have mercy on the other robots will not end well for him.
Also receiving votes: Hector, Ashley Stubbs, Lee Sizemore, Arnold, Young William, Clementine, Ser Pounce, brainless military maneuvers, predictive text, and fans of Rudyard Kipling and Rule Britannia.
