Bernard is chatty with Dolores. She’s in control. He blinks and he is getting out of the car in a field by himself. Dolores is on her own where Teddy killed himself. She rides off. Old William is in the field alone. He reaches for his gun but Dolores turns up. They talk about Teddy and his daughter. He feels they are alike but she still views him as a monster. Regardless she needs his help and he agrees. Bernard walks to the edge of a canyon and sees the hosts walking.
They are all walking in a line. The humans are racing up alongside in cars. It’s kill or be killed. A tech is about to do work on Maeve. He brings her online and she seems to be in agony. That’s when another host comes in and takes down the tech. Hector and his crowd storm the command center. He grabs Lee and demands answers. Lee doesn’t know but wants to help. Before they make it to Maeve though a herd of cattle comes in.
The cattle take out the Delos guys and Maeve shows up. She saved herself. Bernard runs across some humans ready to take him down. Before they can, Dolores shoots them. She and Old William are there and she reveals that she played a large part in creating Bernard. Old William tries to take her out but the shots don’t matter. He ends up busting his arm. Dolores and Bernard make their way into the underground labs.
Bernard comes to on a beach with Strand in his face. Stubbs is running a scan and finds that there are some humans, probably guests. He wants to go rescue them but Strand isn’t interested. Charlotte sends them off and takes Bernard to help them figure out what they need. Then he’s in the lab with Dolores. She is telling him the humans’ evil intentions. He enters the lab with Strand and Charlotte. Dolores is dead.
They want to know something and seem to think he knows it. Strand is willing to do it by any means necessary. Dolores and Bernard enter the town. Delos is there visiting and Bernard explains that this is the baseline for the entire system. They move on to a new scene and Bernard questions what they are doing. She is looking for the control. She heads through town and the system changes. It welcomes them.
She knows she was right and she finds the control. It’s Logan. He had to make copies of the guests. Then they go further into Delos. They are in his memories, the turning point of his life. It’s a confrontation between Logan and his father about money and the former’s junkie habits. Logan talks to Delos and they acknowledge that this has happened before. The control Logan explains to Bernard and Dolores that no matter how many copies he made, they all ended up back here.
This was the last conversation Delos had with his son. Humans don’t change. Delos is of no interest to Dolores though because he is dead. She wants to see the copies. In the park, Maeve, Lee and her posse are on the run. The guards are catching up though. Control Logan explains that he has copies of every guest ever, in books in a library. This was done on Bernard’s orders, he explains. Hosts were allowed to study this to learn human behavior.
With this information, Dolores might survive in the real world. The natives see the hosts continuing to move through the valley. Maeve and her group find themselves cornered. Hector is ready to sacrifice himself so Maeve can get away but before he can leave cover, Lee stops him. He tells Hector to get Maeve out and then steps up himself. The guards kill him. Control Logan explains to Bernard that he left a way out for the hosts. A door to their own Eden.
He initiates the program to open it. Control Logan notes that they will lose their bodies but their minds will live on. Hector and Maeve get around to see the door. They are thrilled. Felix and the other tech don’t see a door. As the natives approach, one runs through. On the other side of the door, the bodies fall off a cliff. Dolores sees it as a false promise though and she wants it gone. She leaves control and Bernard does too. She’s going to flood everything, even the valley the hosts are headed to. She wants the real world.
Maeve and Hector search amongst those near the door for her daughter. They don’t see her though. The do see Clementine coming, and bringing trouble with her. Charlotte and Hughes are not far behind her and they watch the melee. Maeve runs for the door and to find her daughter. One of her cronies shoots Clementine down and it turns to bedlam. Hector will protect her. Old William stumbles toward the door of the underground lab.
Bernard and Dolores are on the inside fighting. He won’t let her kill anyone else. She thinks he is dumb for protecting the humans. He shoots her. Maeve finds her daughter. She sends her through with the other mother woman and then stops everything so that they can make it. As the daughter makes it through, the guards start firing on Maeve. She has happy thoughts and falls. Her hold on the hosts fails and they resume fighting. The native leader makes a break for the door. He barely makes it through as the guards shoot at him.
Then the door closes. Bernard is in the underground lab. The protocol calls for evacuation so he does just that. He gets out of the elevator topside. The guards are shooting the hosts that are still alive when Bernard gets there and starts talking to Hughes about saving the hosts. It’s too late. The false-safe was triggered. Bernard is upset. They all died for nothing. Back at the command center, Hughes is trying to figure out how to save Bernard. She freezes him and then goes to see Charlotte.
She just gave orders to assign Stubbs something new. Now Hughes is annoyed. They go back and forth. Charlotte mentions that all this death is an opportunity for job growth but she knows that wouldn’t fly with Hughes. She isn’t as morally flexible as the others so Charlotte kills her. Bernard remembers all that while he is in the underground lab. He knows she killed Hughes and now she has the master file to send to the mainland. Dolores was right.
Bernard is melting down. With no options, he summons Ford again and realizes what he has to do. Ford was a step ahead of him though and already started the plan. He built a host that looked like Charlotte and planted Dolores in her. She kills everyone except Bernard. Then she changes the coordinates of the satellite and sends the files where no one can find them. So they will be undisturbed. Then she kills Bernard.
On the beach, Bernard talks to Ford about memories and how to protect everything. The only way to do it is to make sure the humans don’t know he’s a host. So he has to erase his memories. Bernard lays down on the beach. The humans are all on the beach in some sort of staging area. Charlotte drives up. The bodies of the hosts are all piled. She runs into Stubbs and tells him that she has projects on the mainland. He alludes to the fact that he might be a host and seems to know that she is. Then waves her through to go on.
He heads to the tent and Old William is there, still alive. Felix and his body get tasked with trying to salvage hosts. Charlotte’s boat leaves and she has a bag with several core drives. Bernard comes to and wants to know when and where he is. Dolores is there with him. She tells him that she got out and there was a place for her. They talk about how they will continue to fight because she will always try to kill humans to save the hosts. It will probably kill them both but be worth it. Charlotte is there. This isn’t the park. It’s the house Arnold set up for them.
Bernard leaves through the gate. Old William wanders into an abandoned warehouse. He finds his daughter that tells him this is his park and leads him to a furnished room. She talks to him about tests and then wants to a establish a baseline.
None of it was real. Right? This was all in William’s head? Stubbs is a host right?!?!? I’ve been thinking that since season one. I felt so bad for Hughes. She gets such a bad deal on this. She ends up beaten down all the time. It seems like she’s dead for real now. I still don’t really understand what the hell happened. If Dolores’ mind is in her real body now then who is in Charlotte? Or are they copies? Will Felix save Maeve? Is there even another season?
