Westworld Season 4 Characters Performance
Several characters in this chapter, “Well Enough Alone,” actually ought to have accepted their meager bribes and minded their own business. Especially if they didn't want to be added to the expanding list of people whose lives have been taken over by robot flies.
We begin in Mexico, where we discover Clementine (Angela Sarafyen), an old friend from Maeve's (Thandiwe Newton) brothel, hiding there.
The Man in Black William (Ed Harris) has discovered her and asks where Maeve is, but she replies that she doesn't know. Even if she knew where to locate Maeve, she'd see him “in hell” before she told him, she says as he shoots her and cuts her throat.
As it turns out, Maeve is traveling with Caleb (Aaron Paul) to Senator Ken Whitney's (Jack Coleman) opulent California house (Saffron Burrows).
The fact that Mr. and Mrs. Whitney is actually hosting is immediately made clear. Maeve learns that her wi-fi telepathic abilities are less potent on these more recent devices as she and Caleb battle the imposters. She informs Caleb that “it seems William has updated his henchmen.”
When she examines the Host Senator's memories, she learns that William and Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) were responsible for the robotic substitutes.
The real Senator Whitney was assassinated for refusing to cooperate with Delos, but Anastasia was kept alive for an unknown experiment that Charlotte is conducting.
They investigate the property and discover Anastasia in a fugue condition, surrounded by flies, in a stable full of dead horses. She appears to pick up a signal that only she can hear when Caleb calls her by name before informing them that they are invited to “opening night.” An old friend is eager to see you again.
A. Don Giovanni. She is killed by Maeve out of mercy.

The Westworld season 4 trailer served as a welcome reminder of the astounding scope and design of the HBO series.
As it touches on the human race and the development of AI, consciousness, pain, what it means to be human, free will and much more, very few shows raise as many difficult philosophical issues.
And no other television program compares to it in terms of ambition, futuristic sheen, or jaw-dropping amazing effects.
With NOW on Sky Atlantic, it's the ideal super-sized science fiction drama for the summer, thus its return is long overdue.
