I'm betting the park is so expensive that most people only ever go once or twice in their lives. They just wouldn't know about whatever quests they are missing out on. Though it must suck if you get into the middle of something good and then some guy shows up and says "Time's up."

I think they mention ending the big loops with a huge world event, so odds are your narrative would swerve to end in a shootout instead.

The point being that Delores is a star attraction, something that punters (like the guy who owns the park) come back to enjoy. Do they have a queuing system? What happens if MiB is due to ride that attraction and the guy before him got a bit rough and killed her or decided to take her with them across the river? Tell the MiB to experience something else? There is no reason for them not to have multiple Delores models. One going on the big discovery journey, one in the town dropping her can, another finding her dad dead etc.

Uh. Well, you gotta reserve your Fastpass for Dolores in advance to make sure you get to ride.

Yeah, also remember that Dolores isn't like a main attraction or something. She's only special to the viewer but to 99% of the guests in the park she is just one of many.

Yeah. She's special to Ford and Arnold and William and the Man In Black, and since they're important human characters with an attachment to her...

Why did MiB need to exsanguinate Kissy before scalping him? That seemed unnecessarily cruel even for that rear end in a top hat.

Kissy was supposed to have a much larger role after the pilot, but then his actor died

Something that William/MiB understands is how the park actually functions. One thing he seems to observe is the way newcomers are always around hosts. If a newcomer kills all the hosts around him, the closest hosts around will rally towards the player. I think this is to make sure the narrative keeps flowing and for the safety of the guest. A host present will have Good Samaritan programming to stop the guests from harming themselves.

Have you figured out how the guns work yet?

Low velocity wax bullets that'll sting a bit but not do any real damage? The hosts will have either very fragile skin and tissue, or be rigged with squibs so they explode with appropriate gore.

I kind of like that they never explain the guns - adds to the woozy uncertainty about what is/isn't real.

One of the bigger plot points in the early half is that QA forgot to remove a bullet from inside maeve

95000 square kilometers. That's the size of Portugal.

It's not quite Westworld but people are going to pay craploads of money to camp in the middle of a specially designed desert. Sounds close enough to me.

May as well say the Painted Desert is the most Jupiter like place on earth and build a space port on it, if all you're going for is a vague look.

edit:
Everyone should see the Painted Desert anyways though. It's awesome.

SUBJECT: Did everyone at Westworld get fired?
If not, you're about to. I never got a response on the asset retrieval from San Diego and the vendor shipped everything to us in sleep mode. There's one stored in my office right now. I don't know how you guys do this--even if they're not real, they're real creepy.

New York City is coming up. How do you want to handle? Proceed with the roadshow as planned? Nobody has run a diagnostic on these hosts in months and I'm not sure how they'll perform once they get out there. And truthfully, after a few select San Diegan black hats, some of the hosts could use a Body Shop tune up.

If I don't hear from someone in the next 15 minutes, we're moving forward and shipping these out. One Mesa filled with lazy, unresponsive assholes doesn't stop the show.

In the movie wasn't it something to do with detecting the body heat of the host/guest. I always imagined it was something like that. Also, I have a theory the whole thing is on a space station or Mars or something.
