Westworld, where the story begins, is a fictional amusement park. It is full of android hosts and is a technologically advanced Wild-West-themed park. This park caters to high-paying guests who can indulge their fantasies that are the wildest within the same park without any fear of retaliation from the hosts. Moreover, their programming prevents the hosts from harming humans.
In the third season of the series, the setting expands to the real world as well, in the mid-21st century. Now the powerful artificial intelligence named Rehoboam controls and drives the lives of the people. Engerraund Serac is the creator of Rehoboam. Bernard is blamed for the Westworld massacre, and thus he had to take a new identity.
The third season of Westworld is three months after the events of the second season. Dolores escaped Westworld with a few Pearls ( processing cores ), including Bernard’s, and takes residence in neo-Los Angeles in 2053. She develops a relationship with Caleb and learns how lower-class humans and artificial beings are treated in the real world. On the other hand, Maeve is in the other part of Delos Park ( based on Fascist Italy during World War II ). William also leaves Westworld at the end of the season and is now haunted by the vision of his daughters. Also, in the end, Dolores was able to transfer power over Rehoboam to Caleb and sacrifices herself to defeat Serac.
Westworld is appraised by the audiences a lot. All the seasons of the series yet earned so much love and positive responses from the fans. We expect the same from the upcoming i.e. fourth season of the television series as well. Westworld’s first season is the most-watched first season of any HBO original series. It has also received a tremendous number of achievements that include winning the Primetime Emmy Awards 9 times out of 54 nominations.
Although, with mostly positive reviews, certain elements of the story and some characterizations were criticized as well. But overall, if we ignore a few weaknesses, the movie-makers performed very nicely. Whether we talk about the costume design, the storyline, or the filming locations, they outperformed it all.
