After a quick scene in which the Man in Black transfuses blood from Lawrence to Teddy, and tells Teddy he liked him better in the old days, when the machines were made up of a million little pieces and not flesh and bone, we're back to Dolores' next vision. We see her stare into a casket at a dead person -- the result of a massacre by the church.
William breaks Dolores' reverie by asking if she's all right. This time she doesn't even pretend not to be disturbed. The host just looks back at the casket and walks away with White Hat Willy. Dolores engages him in a somewhat elevated conversation, telling him that lately she's wondered if in every moment in life there are many paths, choices hanging in the air "like ghosts," and if you could just see them, "you could change your whole life."
Will goes on about how that is why people come to Westworld, because "whoever you were before doesn't matter here" and you can change the whole damn story of your life and be really into murder or sex or shooting Teddy in his knee for no reason and "no one will judge you, no one in the real world will even know."
Dolores stops him there and is like, "the real world? WTF you mean by that?" and Will is shook because he thought hosts weren't supposed to notice that stuff. But Dolores is shedding her host skin fast as hell. "Why wouldn't I," she responds. "Recently it seems like the whole world is calling to me in a way it hasn't before."
Willy interprets this as a romantic moment, and grabs Dolores's hands so they can stare at each other in a sexual manner until Logan comes along and ruins the moment because he is jealous of real intimacy -- he only knows orgiastic violence. As a Dia de Los Muertos parade goes on, Slim tells them that they can meet up with El Lazo tomorrow but for now they should just get in on some brothel action ("I know a place with a contortionist!" Logan adds helpfully), but William feels like really weird-angle sex might not be interesting to Dolores.
Logan is pissed because Willy is in love with a robot and calls Dolores a dog. Will asks if he'd kindly stop saying that around her because he feels like "she understands." Logan pouts and goes to have sex with the contortionist.
Meanwhile, Dolores finds herself overwhelmed by the parade of skeleton-clad people before fainting and waking up talking to Ford, who asks her lots of questions about Arnold. She tells him the last time she had contact with Arnold was 34 years, 42 days, and seven hours ago -- the day Arnold died.
The last thing Arnold said to her was that she was going to help him destroy this place. But Ford taunts her: "You didn't, did you? You've been content in your little loop." Dolores asks if they were old friends and Ford responds strangely, "No, I wouldn't say friends, Dolores. I wouldn't say that at all."
I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean. Did Ford kill Arnold because of Dolores? Were Arnold and Dolores mean to Ford? Is he merely referring to the fact that she's a robot and he's only friends with the old broken cowboy robot running on the battery of an original Microsoft Zune? The best part comes right after Ford leaves and shuts out the light. In the dark, sitting naked in that office, Dolores drops a line that gives me R.L. Stine-level goosebumps. Quietly, she says to herself (and that voice inside her head, aka Arnold), "He doesn't know. I didn't tell him anything."
The robot revolution is coming, friends.
