Recap of Westworld season 3 episode 5

In Westworld season 3 episode 5, Caleb (Aaron Paul) did not expect that he will go on a cinematic journey.  This was after Liam Jr. (John Gallagher Jr.) drugged him with a substance called “Genre.”

The drug took Caleb to different phases in cinematic history, including scenes from movies like Apocalypse Now and The Shining.

Meanwhile, Dolores, a disoriented Caleb and Liam Jr. continue moving to avoid Serac’s hired men. Ash (Lena Waithe) and Giggles (Marshawn Lynch) eventually arrive, helping them fight off the goons. Dolores successfully convinced Liam Jr. to provide her access to Rehoboam, which was a significant step forward in achieving her plan.

More scenes from episode 5

When Caleb enters the trainspotting phase of his trip, Dolores tells the group that she wants to publicly release everyone’s Incite profiles. Liam Jr. objected to this, telling them that not everyone wants to know about their lives and futures.

According to Entertainment Weekly, viewers were also treated to some more insights on his backstory through Liam Jr. He hinted that Caleb has a dark past that even he does not know about. It looks like the season’s remaining episodes will shed more light on Caleb’s history in the season’s remaining episodes.

Dolores still pushed ahead with her plan to release the data, which resulted in chaos all over the world. Liam Jr. continued to resist their escape so Ash shot him, leaving him on his dying breaths.

Additionally, Westworld season 3 episode 5 provided some details of the backstory of Serac (Vincent Cassel). It showed him in a post-nuclear blast Paris as a refugee with his brother Jean Mi. It was the two brothers who created Rehoboam for the corporation called Incite. Serac eventually became a trillionaire and is essentially the world’s richest man.

Westworld season 3 episode 6 preview

Westworld season 3 episode 6 will see a faceoff between Caleb and Martin Connells (Tommy Flanagan).

Based on the Westworld season 3 episode 6 teaser, Connells will hold Caleb at gunpoint. Also in another scene, Dolores and Caleb seem to have returned to the original Westworld.

Jonathan Nolan on inspiration behind Rehoboam

Jonathan Nolan, who co-created Westworld, recently explained what inspired the show’s writers to include Rehoboam into the season’s storyline. In an Insider interview, Nolan said that Rehoboam is an homage to Stand on Zanzibar, a 1968 novel by John Brunner. According to him, the novel is “a seminal piece” in the science fiction genre.

In the HBO show, Rehoboam is a quantum computer system that powers Incite. The company, in turn, controls the lives of everyone without them realizing it.

Westworld season 3 episode 6 will air on Sunday, April 19, at 9 PM ET.
