Westworld’s latest episode Trompe L’Oeil moves ahead to the darker side of things and reveals a major plot twist

The show is just seven episodes in and the fans are speculating about different ideas about the each episode and how they are developing into theories. The seventh episode of the show, Trompe O’Leil made some great revelations and also gave us our first look into the darker side of the Westworld.

You thought you had already seen it. The killings, the violence, the different story lines and dehumanization of the hosts might seem like the dark side of Westworld already. Trompe O’Leil revealed that everything is not as it seems like the hosts. There is a much deeper game at play in behind the scenes of the synthetic park.

This episode saw Bernard waking up from his sleep. We somehow knew that this episode was going to be about him. We see him sitting next to his sick son. Waking up, he reads him a story about a man making his own world where nothing is as it should be.

We find out that he is dreaming and wakes up to look at a picture of his son and himself on his bedside table. We then see him analyzing Escobar. He checks whether he is surprised by any of the pictures that depict the modern world. He is then called to an urgent meeting. He inquires after Elsie who we remember was attacked last night and is unable to locate her.

In Westworld, William and Dolores are still tagging along Lawrence where the bandit sheds light on the state of feminism in the old days. Bernard notices Theresa Cullen and remembers Elsie’s warnings about her. Bernard is weary of her, naturally.

She informs him that the Board’s representative was here looking them all up and they had to present a united front. Bernard assures her that he and his team were onboard. It was like watching a game of cat and mouse. Theresa then visits Charlotte Hale, the Board rep who is looking into everything.

She tells Teresa that the Board is after the intellectual property, the Code and the data that Ford had kept to himself. She asks Theresa to back the ‘intellectual property’ before they could ask Ford to retire and Theresa could take his place. Hale makes it clear that they are not concerned about the park.

We see Maeve in a heightened state of consciousness where she sees the world around her as it is for the first time. She even overrides the pause command when the tech guys come to collect Clementine.

Meanwhile, William and Dolores have a heart to heart about their lives and why they are on the journey together. He tells her about his engagement which makes her morose only for William to follow her and they end up making love. We find out that Clementine was taken to demonstrate the cause and effect of reveries that Bernard had supposedly installed.

Clementine first gets beaten up by a security guard and after a reset, she beats him badly, anticipating his every move. Ashley ends up shooting her. Theresa tells Ford and Bernard that her team found out that the hosts were not getting reset properly and they had memory of their experiences prior to the reset.

Hale orders to decommission all hosts having the glitch and also fires Bernard. Bernard looks to Ford to claim that he had installed reveries or defend him but Ford remains unaffected.

Dolores and William are talking about their budding love and look at a drawing that Dolores has drawn a place that she dreamt about. They are then ambushed by Confederates.

They manage to make an escape and finally get to the place that Dolores had drawn earlier. Maeve pulls the being killed act again and has Felix escort her to Clementine’s decommission. Maeve tell Felix and his friend that they have to help her escape the park or she might kill them.

Bernard confronts Theresa about her made up show that he had seen right through. He knew that there was human intervention in the code that had made Clementine act out. He confronts her about Elsie’s finding and she tells him that she suspected Ford of keeping the Code and destroying it if he was threatened.

She assures him that she is concerned about the park and its personnel only. He then takes her to the cabin that Ford had kept hidden. He tells her that the hosts are programmed to not see it so they never make it to the cabin. The cabin is empty and dark and Theresa asks about a door that Bernard could not see, first hint.

They come to the basement where a host construction machine is at work. Theresa notices prototypes for hosts and she sees Dolores’. She then turns pale when she sees the next. She shows it to Bernard who says it does not mean anything to him. The prototype model is of Bernard himself and bam! Bernard is a host indeed.

Ford makes an appearance. He tells Theresa that they cannot see the things that hurt them. Theresa looks shocked and as Bernard starts to realize he is a host, he starts to tense up but Ford tells him to relax. Ford talks to her about a theory about human creativity and emphasizes that the hosts are free, under his control.

Theresa says that Bernard is not under his control because he had brought her here. Ford tells her that he had asked him to bring her there. She tells him that his time is over. He tells her that he just wanted to tell his stories. She warns him about the Board but he laughs it off. He concludes that her death was the thing that was required to keep their plans going ahead.

She asks him if she did this to Arnold and he says that Bernard wasn’t there back then. She tries to call for help but she is offline. Ford asks Bernard to finish her and he does which is surprising because it is against the host’s Code to hurt humans. Ford tells Bernard to go back to work.
