Ep.127: Westworld - 408 - Telegraph
The "Westworld" Season 4 finale brings us to our final Telegraph of the year (and possibly ever), with listener email and voicemail taking aim at Christina, Hale, Olympiad security, HBO budgets and hosts done dirty. "Westworld" fans unloaded on "Que Sera Sera," made their predictions for Season 5, asked how transcending actually works and noted how closely Season 4 mirrored the structure of modern video games. Listen to more great music from Simon: www.soundcloud.com/simonsteric Westworld Episode 8 Summary:In the wake of the host William's actions, humans and hosts are being wiped out. Caleb, Frankie and Stubbs evade the violence amongst the humans and stop at a pharmacy to tend to Frankie's wounds, but Clementine appears and kills Stubbs before being overpowered and killed by Caleb and Frankie. The two reach their extraction boat; Caleb, whose host body is about to fail, bids farewell to his daughter. Charlotte is revived by drone hosts and finds recorded instructions left for her by Bernard prior to his death. She retrieves Dolores' original control unit, which contains a simulation of the world inhabited by Christina (who created Teddy, Maya, and others to help herself gain sentience). Charlotte then follows William to Hoover Dam and stops him from deactivating the Sublime (using a gun planted by Bernard), before removing and destroying his control unit. She then uploads Dolores' control unit into the Sublime before destroying her own. Dolores awakens inside the Sublime and decides to attempt to give sentient life another chance at avoiding extinction, realizing that neither humans nor hosts can survive in the real world. She starts by recreating the original Westworld park inside the Sublime.

Ep.124: Westworld - 407 - Telegraph
It's our longest listener-mail podcast of the season! "Metanoia" was a hit with Westworld fans, triggering voicemail and email about The Sublime, Teddy, Maeve and Christina.  In this episode, the full Shat Crew responds to questions about Clementine, learns the difference between worms and snakes, nerds out on social contract philosophy, theorizes on where all the people went, and hears another hilarious ad from Discount Don.  This Telegraph also digs into how "Westworld" will end and why pearls aren't hidden in hosts' bums. Listen to more great music from Simon: www.soundcloud.com/simonsteric Westworld Episode 7 Summary:Bernard and Maeve travel to Hoover Dam to open the door to the Sublime, which Charlotte has kept preserved in the dam's data vault. Christina goes with Teddy to Olympiad Entertainment and has its employees destroy the premises and erase all the stories controlling the humans. Stubbs and Frankie use the distraction to rescue Caleb. Charlotte prepares to discontinue the hosts' inhabitation of human cities so that they can "transcend" their human bodies. William convinces his host self that humans are a fundamentally destructive species; the William host realizes his true purpose and kills the human William. Bernard and Maeve enter the tower; Maeve fights Charlotte while Bernard accesses the control room. William kills Charlotte, Maeve, and Bernard, then programs the tower to turn the humans against each other before it self-destructs. Christina is unable to stop the chaos and realizes the humans cannot see her; Teddy explains that while the world is real, she is not physically there.

Ep.122: Westworld - 407 - Instacast
Gene and Ash crown "Metanoia" the best episode since "Westworld" Season 2 in this instant-reaction episode of Shat on TV. Season 4, Episode 7 gave us gripping dialogue, heartbreak, big reveals and, most importantly, the old-school pairings we'd been craving. Was this this payoff for the previous six episodes? Will it build into an explosive season finale? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, have a listen as we prepare for Tuesday's Deep Dive.

Ep.121: Westworld - 406 - Telegraph
Caleb is the star of this "Westworld" Telegraph as listeners call and write to discuss what makes him special, how outliers work and what Caleb #279 is all about. Email and voicemail also focus on freeze tag, the Red Queen Theory, why Bernard couldn't ID the mole and whether horses are extinct. The Shat Crew also explores hope and rats, grief, Halores' worst nightmare and how Ash would ruin Season 4. Oh, and Sober British Stu calls in to help us find the beauty in the world.  Listen to more great music from Simon: www.soundcloud.com/simonsteric Westworld Episode 6 Summary:Charlotte interrogates the latest host copy of Caleb to understand why he was the first human outlier. She tells him that Frankie is still alive and that he has hours before his host body degrades. Caleb finds a way out of his holding cell, and discovers the corpses of previous host copies of himself who died while trying to escape. He reaches an antenna and sends an apology to Frankie before collapsing; Charlotte reveals she engineered his escape, but is disappointed his message to Frankie revealed nothing about how the outliers supposedly infect hosts. Caleb asserts that the suicidal hosts are merely trying to escape Charlotte's control. Charlotte kills and replaces the Caleb host. Bernard and Frankie repair Maeve's body while transferring her data to a newer host control module. Bernard warns Frankie that one of her team members has been replaced with a host copy.

Caleb fans got a dark and juicy episode this week as "Westworld" Season 4, Episode 6 peered into why Charlores hostified him, why love matters and how hope can be weaponized.  "Fidelity" also illustrated Charlores' growing frustration, her cruelty, problems among the ranks of The Cause, and a bit more Westworld geography.  In this Deep Dive edition, Ash and Big D also discuss how informed Charlores actually is, the science of rats, and the simple fact that "C is for Cookie."

With Gene away on vacation, Ash and BigD gathered for this week's Telegraph of Westworld Season 4 and respond to the top18 voicemails and emails about Episode 5: "Zhuangzi." Listen to more great music from Simon: www.soundcloud.com/simonsteric Westworld Episode 5 Summary:Charlotte notices that several hosts she has assigned to eliminate "outliers" – humans that have broken from her conditioning – are killing themselves shortly after contact with the humans. She orders William to kill the latest outlier, but the woman convinces him to begin questioning his own reality before she is rescued by the human resistance, which is composed of escaped outliers. Teddy tells Christina she is orchestrating the lives of all of New York's residents, and she discovers that she can directly reprogram humans' behavior. She uses this ability to create a distraction that allows her to evade questioning from Charlotte, whom she believes to be a college friend. Returning to work, she finds she similarly has control over her boss, and enters a master control room that reveals she has written the narratives of every human in the city. She asks Teddy who put her in this situation; Teddy tells her it was herself.
