Westworld Season 3 Episode 4: The Mother of Exiles
“The truth doesn’t always set you free.”
William is tormented by nightmares of killing his daughter Emily in Westworld, thinking she was a host. Charlotte wakes William up, needing him to be present at a Delos board meeting to protect the company from Serac. William cleans himself up, and wards off another vision of Emily by telling her it was a conscious decision to kill her. As he leaves, Charlotte comments on his visions of Emily, shocking him.
Believing Dolores has swapped Liam with a host, Bernard and Ashley prepare to infiltrate a private charity event in Los Angeles to abduct Liam. Dolores and Caleb make similar plans after transferring all of Liam’s funds out of his account. At the event, Bernard and Ashley grab Liam after he discovers his funds have been lost, but quickly learn Liam is not a host. Bernard runs off with Liam as Caleb chases them down, while Dolores fights with Ashley. Bernard is approached by Martin and Liam’s bodyguards, and Bernard realizes Martin is the host when Martin kills the guards. Liam flees, followed by Caleb.
Serac again urges Maeve to help find Dolores, as not only does she hold the encryption key to the Delos data, but also to the Sublime to reunite Maeve with her daughter. He claims that Delos’ secret project of mapping of the human mind can improve Rehoboam and prevent humanity from destroying itself after his native Paris was destroyed in a nuclear blast. He knows Dolores had brought five host control modules, “pearls”, and coerces an identity broker to reveal a lead to a Singapore organ trade doctor named the Mortician with ties to the Yakuza. The Mortician directs her to the Yakuza’s headquarters, and after quickly dispatching the guards, Maeve meets the Yakuza leader, Sato, recognizing him as the Musashi host from Shogun World.
William, Bernard, and Maeve all recognize that Charlotte, Martin, and Sato are all hosts with copies of Dolores’ pearl. Dolores, via Sato, tells Maeve that she needs to duplicate herself to prevent Serac from stopping her before critically wounding Maeve. William lashes out at Charlotte on his discovery, and Charlotte has him committed to a mental institution, where he has visions of Dolores as he remembered her from the park. Martin takes Bernard to meet up with Caleb who has cornered Liam, and is soon joined by Dolores, whom Liam recognizes as Lara, the girlfriend he had thought dead.
