Well, we all called it, especially Tim in episode 2 of our show! This week’s episode was the dumbest, and best yet with its crazy reveal and our first real death!

It really is a fun show to watch with Dolores and William on the love train, Maise on the hunt for revenge, Ford showing his true colors, and poor Bernard learning the horrible truth about his son. We had a lot of fun and thanks for listening!

  1. I have been believing it was a 3 time period plot line for a few weeks, with a possible host rebellion existing in the second timeline. The Man in Black being William, 30 years later.I believe Maive is the 3rd timeline, 30 years after the rebellion and the robot conversion from animotronics to the useg real bodies whose minds have been blanketed.Why? Because of the Man in Black’s discussion with Teddy about the Utopia of the outside world. Maybe he helped create immortality. Hence the gentleman who tried to thank him.This why I think Felix follows Maive’s bidding. She is an actual human giving orders, he qnd Sylvester are hosts.Why have humans doing grunt work? I think we will soon see Fords version of Theresa, that he had in mid bake when Bernard killed her. I know my theory is whacky. Love your show.

  2. No offence but your description says that Tim called it but it was Micheal. I just started listening to the podcast after this episode came out and I was so supprised to hear Micheal say that early on that it got ingrained in me. Mad crazy theory props Micheal. I am sure Tim has some too. You all are really great to listen to and I hope finances will soon allow me to sign up for Geeklycon in St. Louis!
