VoK 474: Westworld – “Vanishing Point” & “The Passenger” (S02E09-10 Review)


Join Hostcast as we discuss the season 2 finale of HBO’s Westworld, “The Passenger”.

We’re all in the thing now.

Hosts: Adam (Drownedsnow), Matt (Blu3arm0r), and Bina (Bina007).

From Lisa Joy

“In Lost, they really believed in the mystery box and not looking too much inside the mystery box. It was some kind of idea generator that you didn’t need to dissect and open up. And that’s absolutely fascinating and an engaging way to tell a story”, Joy said. “But for us, you know, I think we are interested in dismantling the mystery box, opening it up, looking at what it is, putting it together like it’s some kind of Lego, seeing how it works and really questioning and exposing that.”

“The questions that we tee up, we do try to address”, she said. “We have an answer for all of them.”
