No moral Westworld viewer would watch the girl's tail-end fury and see rightful vengeance. She's unleashing primal terror and vengeance. We can see that in the Delos crowd. We can see that in Teddy's eyes. At the end of Westworld Season 1, Dolores seizes her own mind. But she isn't human. Not yet.
After the finale ended, J.J. Abrams popped up in talking head form to pose a question: What happens at the dawn of consciousness? It's the perfect Season 2 tease. Dolores has so much to learn -- a short list that includes: real time empathy, true love, and the taste of a prime ground beef burger -- but this is the beginning of something true, unleashed. Like an ape bashing in the skull of his fellow ape as the monolith funnels universal knowledge into its mind, Dolores is awakening to her own sovereignty. "Journey into Night" finds her as a dominant leader of the revolution, and a lawless judge of morality. Her plan is hazy: not only does she want the Westworld park to be run by its robotic inhabitants, but she images herself conquering the human world, too. There's an unspoken question (mostly because anyone who could ask it is dead): will Dolores's bicameral mind rupture into chaos or level out into true consciousness? Based on Teddy's wariness, she'll pass the "human" test if she can make the evolutionary jump without spilling too much blood.
