Looks like things will be picking up speed with the reveal/confirmation that Bernard is a host.

That episode went fast. I haven't been counting, so I'm surprised to see this is already episode 7. Sucks that there are only three left, as if feels like there is so much more I want to know.

Ford is becoming the break-out character of the show. I can't imagine Anthony Hopkins wouldn't be back (barring the obvious happening in the next three episodes, of course).

I guess basically everyone and their mother's predicted that for Bernard from the start.

I considered it as a possibility but holy $#!t I didn't think seeing it would knock me for a loop.

As soon as Bernard said "What door?" I knew something was wrong but jeez.

Then he said, "It doesnt look like anything to me."

Yep, my initial thought that Ford is the "Henry Ford" of the synthetic assembly line still stands. Robert Ford be damned. That was an epic episode.

It's been bugging me where I've seen Clementine before...

Turns out she's the Cingular Wireless chick with the umbrella.

She was also in this ad, which is where I first noticed her. Sooooo fucking hot.





So anyone want to take bets the host that Ford was creating in his secret lab is going to be Theresa?

I first noticed her on the short-lived series "The Good Guys" (with Colin Hanks and Bradley Cooper), where she was brought in mid-run to be "The Tech Girl in the Glasses" that so many series had to have.

There was a shot or two of the machine making the mold or skeleton, and you could see her hair being etched. Ford will use her as his crony when the board starts up anything against him.

Great twist that I didn't see coming at all. Nice job Nolan & Joy.

Great episode this week. Liked the train and chase sequence with William and Dolores. Beautiful country - the crew did a great job staging everything.

I had a feeling he was, but honestly, it's a twist for the sake of a twist. It is wholly inconsistent with what we have seen in the show so far. It's a bit of a cheap thrill, IMHO.

My wife feels exactly the same way; felt the twist was unearned. I can't help but notice that this was, iirc, the first episode after the shut-down for retooling. Wonder if this was added during that time.

Jeffrey Wright says he was told the twist after he shot the pilot.

I guess the big clue was that he was the only non-host character to get flashbacks.

It's weird that the folks running the park aren't picking up on Maeve basically doing whatever the fuck she wants.

Unless, that's what Ford wants.

Yeah, It's clear "Ford Sees ALL" in this place. Ev-er-ree-thing seems monitored, yet, people don't pick up on Maeve or the damn house with old hosts in the middle of nowhere.

It makes me think Ford is even a more powerful "Wizard" in this world then we think.
