Westworld Season 2 ENDING EXPLAINED (Post-Credit Scene & Bernard Timelines)
hi I'm Erik Bosse and HBO's

Westworld

season

2 has ended leaving those of us who obsessively watch the show slightly less confused than usual which is a big win as far as I'm concerned there are just enough where deals and clues to piece together what's going on that is until a

what is this an Avengers movie not enough depth now that the

season

is over and we are past this risk of our theories expiry in a week later when a new episode blows our minds in a different way let's look back at this

season

as the 10 hour movie it secretly is and explain its lingering mysteries and spoiler warning in case you haven't seen the finale episode ok first and foremost what the hell was going on with

Bernard

this

season

so in

season

2

Bernard

s story was split into two

timelines

one in the immediate aftermath of the

season

1 massacre and another 2 weeks later when a more confused

Bernard

joins the dello security team this finale episode tied the two

timelines

together now I plan to make another video that goes into these

timelines

in detail but the gist is timeline a shows

Bernard

escaping the massacre with Charlotte Hale teaming up with LC and learning the parks true agenda rejoining Dolores and killing her to stop her from wiping out the data in the forge then

Bernard

witnesses Charlotte murdering LC to cover it all up so he spends the remaining 12 hours before the Della's team arrives constructing a hosts version of Charlotte and replacing...

the real Charlotte with her he gave this Charlotte Dolores his coat

bernard

leaves himself on the beach after scrambling his memories so that the delos team that finds him won't be able to pry those thoughts out of him he also says goodbye to the vision of Ford who had been guiding him

Bernard

realizes that since he deleted Ford from his code the voice he had heard was actually himself this suggests that

Bernard

has reached a true bicameral mind of consciousness realizing that the second voice in his head isn't that of a God but his own that brings us to timeline B

Bernard

s journey with Carl strand in the dello steam the Charlotte's that joins them in this timeline is actually Dolores and disguised notice how in all of these

s she now wears body armor this is all part of

Bernard

s plan to sneak Dolores out of the park when Charlotte / Dolores is scanned at the end of the episode she's clear meaning

Bernard

must have omitted the explosive inside of every hosts neck we also learned this episode that

Bernard

actually Dolores is creation this is what we were seeing in this third

bernard

timeline the fidelity test between him and dolores in the past the original human Arnold created Dolores of course but over time she recorded his bio details enough to recreate him as a host but the true AI host Arnold would inevitably ended suicide so Dolores changed him to create the sweet sweet

robot concept by including MC Escher's hands drawing hand sketch and that brings us to Dolores this

season

and the question what are the door the forge and the valley beyond

season

two showed us an awakened Dolores following the blood thirsty Wyatt narrative seeking something called the valley beyond the finale shows

Bernard

and Dolores reaching the forge which is a massive underground database storing all of the backup drives of the park this Forge is the golden egg everyone is after it contains the bio data secretly recorded from the human guests we learned this

season

at West world's secret agenda was to collect data on the humans through recordings from the hosts in the guests hats fellows could do all kinds of evil stuff with this data but the implication is that they plan to use it to build AI clone versions of real people basically to offer immortality to the elite of society we saw them conducts these fidelity experiments with AI clones of James dillos Charlotte could use this human data to create host versions of all the humans who were killed in the massacre basically covering that scandal up when Dolores and

Bernard

tore through the forge its inner computer manifests in the form of Logan he tells in that humanity isn't all that different from robot algorithms that all humans also mindlessly go through the motions according to their inner programming incapable of change they are just passengers thus this episode's title during this tour we can see in...

a background various

s from

season

1 suggesting that all these interactions were being used to structure a paradise the digital Eden that the host a eyes could escape into this is what the valley beyond is the forge creates a door it's a rift in reality that only the host can see the hosts run through this door and transport their minds into this digital Eden while their Empty host bodies tumble down into the ravine in the real world which of course gets flooded resulting in the lake of host bodies that Barnard finds leader but rather than letting these host minds live in peace Dolores has different plans in the forge library she reads books on specific humans this includes a book on Charlotte Hale also a book on Carl strand the pages of these books are written in sheet music for a player piano which echoes ford's final speech votes on Beethoven and Chopin never died they simply became music now Dolores initially plans to erase all the host data but after

Bernard

kills her she instead uses the dello satellites to send them somewhere else and this change in behavior suggests a higher level of consciousness and Dolores as well so what's next for Dolores and

Bernard

well the final

showed

Bernard

Dolores and Charlotte outside

Westworld

in the human world now we had just seen Charlotte slash Dolores escape with five host brain pearls in her purse those could be once for Charlotte

Bernard

maybe also Teddy made Abernathy or others the final chat between...
Dolores and

Bernard

hints at a coming war against the human race Dolores is militant while

Bernard

sees goodness in humanity there actually appear to be some parallels with the civil rights movement with one revolutionary seeking change through compassion and the other seeking change through violent upheaval so I think next

season

we can expect Dolores and

Bernard

to continue this ethical debate as Dolores wages of war on mankind meanwhile remember we still have three sections of the West world Park yet to be revealed so I assume we'll get to those as well there's also more Williams story left to tell so what happened in the

takes place in the distant future that's why the forge is this dusty ruin now William actually did kill his daughter Emily in the previous episode this now is a host version of her and this William is also a host reliving his final visit to West world over and over as these future hosts try to perfect this AI clones...
coding to try to match the real thing future William will go through the same endless that test that he put James dello through meanwhile back in the present timeline Williams survived he was found by Stubbs in the recovery team he'll probably live on to fight another day to me Williams role in

teases that william truly will achieve the immortality he seeks just as a host trapped in a gilded cage forever and ever never dark so that covers Dolores Barnard William and Charlotte but what about the fate of the other characters in this finale episode we saw a few characters make it to the valley beyond digital Eden Teddy Maeve's daughter the ghost nation warrior a cachi and his wife most of the other characters don't make it made Clementine Hector and Armistice and the Geisha honey they all died in the hosts melee at the end of the finale Felix and Sylvester were tasked with determining which hosts to bring back suggesting that Maeve and her cohorts will probably return meanwhile human characters like Lea and Elsie both got shot and died in the finale and one last big reveal was that Stubbs has also been a host all this time...
apparently he revealed to Charlotte slash Dolores that Ford also programmed him with a roll and that's why he allows her to escape know there are probably a lot more questions to ask about this

of

but one question I have for you do you want Dolores to succeed comment down below or tweet me directly at EA of us and keep an eye out for the other
