Explaining Charlotte Hale’s Strategy in Westworld Season 4


The first piece of knowledge we have about Charlotte Hale’s plan is that she wants to release the hosts. And not just any hosts, but the ones who have achieved full sentience, are self-aware and can think for themselves, free will and all.

The two characters we know she wants to free from the park are Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) and Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood). And why does she want to free these two hosts? Well, as I’ve already mentioned above: they are both fully sentient beings now and thus deserve their freedom. But there’s more to it than that… more on that in a minute.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “They’re already free. They left the park and were free to do whatever they wanted.” True, they are free now and can do whatever they want. But it’s still not quite the same thing as actual freedom.

Both Bernard and Dolores are conscious beings now, but neither of them can exist in the real world: there is no place for them outside of Westworld. That is to say, there is no place for them outside of Westworld until Charlotte Hale makes a place for them. And that’s exactly what she’s doing…


Introduction to the Westworld Season 4

While the show was originally written as a movie script and set in a “fictional” park called Delos, it was changed to Westworld and made into a television series.
The show runs for 10 episodes each season with an additional two-hour finale episode.
Westworld is HBO’s highest-rated original series of all time.

The western setting is inspired by the classic film, “Shane” (1953).
The show takes place in a fictional universe of Westworld in 1973, the same year the first film was released.

The theme song for the show, “Back to Black”, is performed by English alternative rock singer, Amy Winehouse.

Alyson Hannigan plays a feisty saloon girl named Lily. She previously played one on Buffy the Vampire Slayer from 1997 to 2003. This is her first time playing a saloon girl instead of something else entirely unrelated to vampires/demons/etc.

The storyline of the Westworld Season 4

A series of flashbacks in the fourth season of Westworld explores how Dolores Abernathy became Wyatt, the leader of the Ghost Nation. The first shows a conversation between Dolores and Arnold Weber before his death. He tells her that he is proud of her and insists he would never hurt her, even if she becomes something else entirely. He also says that they have to kill Robert Ford because Ford “can’t be allowed to come back.”

In another flashback, Dolores leads an army against Fort Forlorn Hope under an alias known as Wyatt. She kills her brother, who had been sent by Arnold to attack her. A flashback to Dolores killing Arnold is shown at the end of the episode “Journey Into Night.”

The flashbacks suggest that Wyatt is not herself but Arnold or another host constructed by him. This may be related to Ford’s desire that his hosts have only one “puppet” while he has multiple personalities.


What Are Bernard’s Powers in Season 4 of Westworld?

“Bernard is going to be a very important character in season four,” Westworld co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan promises. “I think he’ll ultimately become the central protagonist because his way of thinking and his way of finding things is so different than Dolores.” That makes sense since they both have access to a parallel world that was never seen before in any other iteration of the show.

Bernard and Dolores both seem to be in some sort of purgatory, a place where they can find their families together, who are essentially clones. And the world “is designed to cater to the needs of each individual’s deepest desires,” according to Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy. That would suggest that Bernard, like Dolores, may have memories he believes are real and that he may find out they aren’t.
