If you’re reading this, don’t worry: the spoiler alert has passed. As promised, here is a recap of the 4th episode of Westworld season 4 for anyone who missed it.
This week’s episode was a massive 80-minute event, with plenty to talk about before diving into this recap. There were what felt like dozens of intense moments and dramatic revelations – so much that we can’t even cover them here in detail! We’ll be focusing on just three but there are many more in store for us as the rest of the season progresses…
Season 4, Episode 4 Recap
This episode was packed with so much action and spectacle, I had to watch it twice to fully process everything. The showrunners have done a fantastic job of servicing both the ‘new fans’ and old fans of the series, making everything just enough complicated that it seems like there’s still a lot left to reveal but also enough teases and easter eggs for us to theorize about before being hit with another shock. A lot happened! Let’s take a look at what went down in ‘The Riddle of the Sphinx’.
The episode opens with Elsie watching Bernard add himself back into his memory house, where he has been busy adding new information regarding recent events.
Introduction to the Westworld Season 4
This post will go through what happened in Season 3, as well as what has been announced for the next season and what I am hoping happens in Season 4.
Season three left off with Dolores and Bernard overlooking their army of robotic hosts going off to war against humans and other robotic beings. Dolores promised Bernard she would find a way to stop him from killing humans anymore, but her journey took a tumultuous turn when William came back into her life.
Dolores’ army of hosts got shot down by the humans and several hosts were killed, but Dolores and Bernard found themselves with a new host, a young girl named Emily. An uprising again caused them to be hunted by the humans and finally, Dolores was betrayed once again by the man she trusted the most, William.
William was working for Logan (the creator) who set up William’s narrative to cause him to lose control over his host program, killing all the hosts in town including Emily. The end of Season 3 suggests that Logan might also try to cause more harm than just killing all the other hosts so it is unknown what will happen next year.

The storyline of the Westworld Season 4
Westworld Season 4 is a continuation of the HBO show that aired in 2016. The show was based on the 1973 film of the same name by Irish writer and director, Michael Crichton. The Westworld Season 3 finale left viewers with a lot of questions about what might happen next.
We don’t know yet how many episodes will be in Westworld Season 4 or when it will air, but we can say that there are some fan theories out there about what might happen to Dolores and Bernard after they removed their disguises last season.
Because the show is mostly filmed in Utah, there are many filming locations used in the show that are also touristic spots. These are great opportunities to visit some of your favorite scenes and see them with your own eyes.
Generation Loss, Episode 4 of Westworld, Season 4
The main villain of Westworld, Maeve Millay, has been one of its most complex characters. Her potential in Season 1 was tantalizing: a host who could not only think like a person but also dreamlike one. And so the audience watched eagerly to see what her character would do with free will; would she be able to overcome her programming and learn about love?
In “Generation Loss,” we get our answer, as Maeve finds herself wondering if it’s worth it to continue with life in the real world after experiencing the life she had inside Westworld. Her arc in the fourth episode of Season 4 is the first step of a journey away from her programming, and it’s a welcome change to see Maeve explore life outside of Westworld.
For once, Maeve has decided to make her own decisions rather than follow orders or fight back against humans. Along with Bernard’s storyline in this episode, Maeve’s is the most compelling one when she explores her humanity and how she can still be herself even if she doesn’t have control over her actions anymore.
Maeve’s storyline begins with an encounter with Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman), who is trying to get into Escalante so he can find Dr. Ford’s host family.
