Zahn McLarnon was so incredible in last night’s Westworld S2 ep 8 that all I could think was “It’s too bad it’s so bloody MOM WOULD LOVE THIS”. Plus the entire episode is subtitled — since it’s not in English.
ANYWAY he ran the gamut of human emotions, first with the dreamlike air of a man in wonderment that he could feel anything at all, and then with the purpose and clarity of a man vouchsafed an unshakeable, grounding, unifying vision. Unbelievably good, and everyone in the episode was good too.
The stuff happening in the background in a couple of scenes was incredible.
The last speech before roll credits. God. Rewatching this episode is going to be a highlight when we do the season 3 preparatory rewatch.
Narrative subversion and apotheosis. Unreal.
My heartfelt love as a creative person for almost everything about the episode and I release my joy and gratitude to the universe for something so fine.
