Upstream podcast: ‘Westworld’ episode 8 features a big awakening

In Westworld episode 8, “Kiksuya,” we follow Akecheta, a member of Ghost Nation, through his process of gaining consciousness, and no we definitely did not cry through the whole episode.

Unfortunately, the Man in Black is still friggin’ alive, and, apparently, so is Logan; Akecheta finds him in the desert naked and afraid, but Logan doesn’t seem to remember meeting him in episode 2. We also learn about the scope of Maeve’s Jedi powers and wonder if a Robert Ford hologram would work in Westworld. This episode is all about finding the right world.
