Westworld Season 1 Episode 8 Recap | Trace Decay

Listen to the Podcast

Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.

This week, Josh and Jo talk about “Trace Decay,” the eighth episode of the series. Last week, Bernard learned a hard lesson about the nature of his reality. Now what? That’s where the episode begins, and far from where it ends. Beyond the Bernard of it all, “Trace Decay” moves Maeve and the Man in Black’s stories further along the path, in separate and interlocking ways. Josh and Jo talk about all of that, attempt to make sense of the show’s different timelines, address your feedback, and more.
