The plot of the HBO drama is beyond understanding, but it must be a purposeful choice because every other aspect of the show is so well-made, says Daniel D'Addario. He adds that the fun of Westworld is not the plot, but its mystery. "So much TV seeks to begin by explaining," he says. "Along with FX’s intriguingly post-literal Atlanta, Westworld works its magic by suggesting that some things are beyond us. It’s a show for an era in which the progress—or regression—of humanity is happening at a pace none of us can comprehend, a show for lifetimes into which irreversible change has entered. As its second season winds down, its fascinations are more than just theorizing, or hype; for now, it’s an odd treasure, in the glimmering moment between the competently-executed and sharp drama it was and the statement—in some direction known only to its creators—it’s working towards becoming."
