Westworld Season 1 Episode 9 Recap | The Well-Tempered Clavier

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 “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” the ninth episode of the series. If you thought the Bernard reveal in episode seven was the biggest bombshell surrounding the character, think again. Season one’s penultimate episode flips the script once again with yet another major Bernard twist, likely blindsiding many viewers — but hopefully not those of you who listen to this podcast and have been on #TeamBernardold for weeks and weeks now. Josh and Jo talk at length about the twist now that it’s out on the show, what it could possibly mean, whether or not we’ll see Bernard again after what Ford makes him do, the various possibilities surrounding Arnold’s death and true motives, and much more. Also, Josh gets very worked up about The Dark Knight. Curse you, Two-Face!
