The episode begins at a playground with children being pushed on swingsets, as a young black girl coming up to an Asian man, telling him things she shouldn’t know.

She asks him to come with her and they walk together, and they come up to a man and woman, telling him that his behavior has become ‘problematic.’

The woman says she doesn’t know how much time he has unless he comes with us, and he does… but as they walk, everyone around them freezes.

The young man Jay asks what’s happening, as the young girl says ‘They’re coming’ and telling him, ‘Don’t move.’

A number of faceless human clones walk through all of the frozen masses, examining everyone for outliers but they don’t pick up on any of them and walk away.

However, a fly lands on the man’s face and he blinks it away, as the clone turns and strangles him while the others get away.

They all get out of a black van as the woman and girl takes Jay to a safe house, as the woman introduces Jay to some others in the house.

The woman gets Jay a sleeping bag, telling him that she knows this is hard and there are things they can’t fix, as much as they want to.

The woman tells the young girl that she’s proud of her and she reminds her so much of him as the girl goes to check on Jay.

She asks if he wants to say hi to her dad, as it’s revealed the girl is Frankie, Caleb’s daughter, as a child.

Jay says there’s no point in leaving these messages, saying her dad is gone, just like his brother is.

Jay leaves as Frankie asks the radio if he’s out there, as the episode cuts to the adult Frankie (Aurora Perrineau), who is driving with Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) before the title sequence begins.

The first episode for Season 4 teased that the season was set seven years after the events of Season 3, though it seems the time jump was even bigger than that.

Last week’s episode – Zhuangzi – revealed that the mysterious C was actually Frankie, the grown daughter of Caleb (Aaron Paul) and Uwade (Nozipho Mclean).

She had been looking for her father for years, even though he was long believed to be dead.

While it seemed they might find his body in the desert, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) instead found Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) buried in the desert, with the episode’s teaser hinting they will be bringing her back to life.

While still unclear, it’s possible that the various stories are actually playing out in different timelines simultaneously, though that remains unclear. 

The season seems to be leading up to an epic battle between Charlotte and her clone army and what’s left of the human resistance.

One of the biggest questions the show has yet to be answered is the fate of Caleb, who fans learned in the fourth episode had been dead for 23 years and Charlotte revealed this current version is the 278th version of him.

Christina (Evan Rachel Wood) also learned in last week’s episode that she can literally make anyone do what they want with her ‘mind’ though it’s unclear how she’ll use these abilities.

There are just two episodes left of Westworld Season 4 – Metanoia on Sunday, August 7 and the season finale, Que Sera, Sera on Sunday, August 14 on HBO.
