    Spoiler: show
    I started piecing it together after the first native dude went through "the door," but what is throwing me off is the train scene from a few episodes back.

    Weren't there two groups of people (Elsie/Bernard and Charlotte/Bernard/Delos dudes) that were all present when the train hit the welcome area and the hosts started attacking? I thought both of them reacted to the train exploding and the rumbling in the HQ.
    It's pretty clear from this last episode that Elsie/Bernard happened first which would mean the train only hit when they were there and Bernard was going into the model space for the park where he met Ford. I had thought there were two Bernards from that point,
    rather than the two timelines again because of the train explosion thing.

    just binge watched season 2, show is good and often flirts with greatness but can't stop getting in its own way. the disjointed narrative and twisty twists of twist often seem designed mostly to display the cleverness of the writers and to instill the kind of compelling engagement they don't believe more conventional plot presentation would engender (though given how often the writers rely on deus ex machina when someone has a gun to someone's else's head maybe they really just aren't good enough).

    Spoiler: show

    for example the shot of Teddy dead at the end of episode one, revealing his fate in a contrived manner designed to spur a million shitty reddit threads but substantively was an affectation that served no actual narrative purpose. they seemed afraid that telling the story of Dolores growing increasingly bloodthirsty and Teddy's aversion to it (and then to himself when he is programmed to be the same), resulting in her losing the one individual that truly loved her during her quest for vengeance was not a story that could stand on its own. and they were wrong. the cheap who-dun-it cliffhanger weakened rather than strengthened the defining seasonal arc of one of the show's protagonists.

    conversely the reveal of Akecheta (in addition to simply being excellently portrayed by Fargo bro and beautifully presented by director/cinematographer/scorer) was the kind of layered expansion of the universe that both makes coherent sense and subverts audience assumptions. hitherto we knew nothing about him and the Ghost Nation simply because our protagonists knew nothing about them, our range of knowledge was restricted with a justification that went beyond fuck you that's why.

    and the writers seem entirely unable to tell the difference. they are so obsessed with mystery and the complexity of their construct they fail again and again to see the sophistication of simplicity, and fail to believe in the strengths of their own creation.


    all in all 3/5 Doloreses going full Cylon.
