Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) prepares for her robot species to evolve in the final episode of Westworld Season 4.
The title of the seventh episode alone – Metanoia – teases out this development, which is defined as a noun, ‘a change in the way of life resulting from repentance or spiritual conversion.’
As Charlotte prepares to evolve, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) teases that he ‘sees a path’ to the salvation of the human race.
Evolved: Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) prepares for her robot species to evolve in the final episode of Westworld Season 4.
Path: As Charlotte prepares to evolve, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) teases that she ‘sees a path’ to the salvation of the human race.
The episode begins back at Hoover Dam, as Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Maeve arrive, Bernard says it’s safe to walk.
He gives her a large weapon and says she needs it as they go in, Maeve says if she knows what’s going to happen, why would she need it?
He says he is the best fighter, and this place is not what it seems.
Maeve learns that Delores ended up at Sublime, and Charlotte keeps a watchful eye on it.
Bernard accesses his tablet and says he’s ‘opening the door’, before asking her to share a drink with him, which Maeve thinks is odd.
He says if it fails they will have other opportunities as Maeve says they are in Sublime and she is there for a while.
‘And if we’re there, that means I’m not myself, is it?’ Maeve says she is a ‘copy’ as Bernard admits and he had to make her ‘in a hurry’.
Bernard tells him that he has been on every path and that it all ends the same way – extinction – for both humans and robots.
Bernard says that there may be a part, that he can upload her and her daughter to the real world.
Maeve desperately wants that but Bernard wonders what she really thinks or her programming.
A large robot crashes into a wall while it is talking to Bernard, a stranger, asking him if he knows how it goes, and he says so.
‘You think you can save them?’ The stranger asks, as Bernard says he has ‘seen the way’ but he ‘can’t do it alone.’
The episode returns to Hoover Dam where we see the same shot as before, with Bernard and Maeve arriving at Hoover Dam…albeit a little different.
They find a large robot but Bernard tells them to save his ammo when they tell him about one of the ways he died.
He opens the door for her and says there are things they need to see to first, but this time Maeve asks for a drink but he says it’s best to focus on what’s at hand.
The robot breaks through the wall as Maeve destroys it, as Bernard says that Hale is still out there pulling the strings and they can save everyone and themselves.
Maeve asks him to promise to reunite with his daughter when they leave the dam and we see a huge break through the dam…and this world…the title sequence begins.
The episode continues as Christina (Evan Rachel Wood) wakes up to Teddy (James Marsters) watching her.
He asks if she had a bad dream and she says that her whole world except for him seems like a bad dream.
She says she doesn’t think she has it in her to do it, Teddy says there are copies and permutations but Charlotte is one of those permutations.
Teddy says he’s here to tell us what he is, as he sits down next to her and says, ‘We are a reflection of the people who made us.’
Cristina asks if they could get hurt or die but Teddy says it’s not that easy for their kind, as he calls her Delores, but doesn’t know who she is before she leaves.
Cristina looks in the mirror and steps into the bathtub, completely submerged, as Teddy walks to the door.
Cristina begins to convulse underwater as Teddy keeps knocking on the door, worried, Cristina becomes unresponsive…before opening her eyes, seemingly at peace, before emerging from the water.
The episode transitions to Caleb, still stuck in his cage, as he is visited by Charlotte and William (Ed Harris), with Charlotte saying she can’t bring him back another time.
She asks William to leave and examines his bloody hand, saying that his body is not as ‘pathetic’ as hers.
‘You should really thank me,’ says Charlotte, adding that she’s shutting down cities and putting people in cold storage tonight.
‘Your daughter and the rebels will arrive in time to join the party. You’re only here as fodder,’ Charlotte told him, ‘it would be nice to have some quiet here.’
William asks, ‘You mean, what did you say to him?’ Charlotte added, ‘In the last three days, we’ve had more hosts take their own lives than in the previous two decades. If I don’t do it today, tomorrow we will be short. You have one day left to preside over your city. Enjoy it.’
Ashley (Luke Hemsworth) and Cee (Aurora Perrineau) wait for Bernard, who arrives just in time as Ashley jokes that he can even predict the future.
Ashley says this is the closest they can get to the Olympiad because they say Bernard and Maeve can take down Charlotte.
Maeve tells C that she wants to meet her father and Bernard tells Ashley that he’s a good friend, which surprises Ashley because he’s never been good.
Bernard explains that Ashley won’t make it as a hug and Ashley says ‘You better win.’
Charlotte says that today is the last day their kind will visit the city, and it’s time for them to evolve into the species they will become when they send the message.
Clone William approaches what is left of human William, who asks, ‘What do you want?’
‘She wants to take me away from my world,’ but the real William says it’s not her world.
Real William says she neutered Clone William after he pulled out a knife and says he should do the same to him.
Real William says, ‘Civilization is just a lie we tell ourselves to prove our true intentions. We are not here to pass. We are here to destroy. If I could, I would pull the plug on this whole world. But I can’t, can I? Unless you want to set me free’
Real William says he has a piece of him inside of him and it’s like, ‘It’s spreading inside you like cancer.’
‘There’s no way I’m going to get out of this f*ing rig, but I don’t need to because you’re me and one of us needs to do what we have to do,’ says the real William.
Clone William stabs his body suit as the real William smiles as the clone walks away.
The trailer for the seventh episode shows Charlotte presumably talking to several of her robotic friends.
In the trailer, she said, ‘This may come as a shock to some of you but I think you will understand.
‘These are the last days of our kind. It’s time for us to evolve into the species we will become,’ says Charlotte.

Charlotte appears to have some sort of confrontation with Bernard, who has spent the past seven years evaluating every possible scenario before finding a ‘way’ to save humanity, while another shot shows two different Charlottes.
Charlotte is experimenting with interesting technology with tiny flies that make any human finally under Charlotte’s control.
While humanity is largely under her control, there are ‘outliers’ that Charlotte is dealing with, who can override her programming.

The first outlier was Caleb (Aaron Paul), who was on the road with Maeve (Thandiwe Newton).
It was revealed at the end of last week’s episode that there are 278 versions of Caleb, with the ending showing the 279th version being created.
