That Westworld Nude Scene Proves Just How Quickly the Park's Power Dynamics Changed
🚨Spoilers forWestworldSeason 2 Episode 1, "Journey Into Night," below.🚨
This article features NSFW imagery. Proceed with caution.
Much like its HBO brethrenGame of ThronesandBoardwalk Empire,Westworldnever shied away from stark, graphic nudity. In Season 1, the hosts spent as much time in varying states of undress (often completely naked, seated on a metal chair in a cold laboratory) as they did costumed for their day jobs.
But Season 2 opens with the hosts controlling the park, and nothing illustrates quite how much they're enjoying their newfound power like Maeve forcing slimy Lee Sizemore to strip to nothing.
Sizemore is at Maeve's mercy from the start of the episode, when she saves him from a cannibalistic host; she needs his help in tracking down her daughter inside the park. Since she's the only thing standing between him and certain death, who could blame her for taking the opportunity to have a little fun? "You wrote this game—high time you played a round," she remarks, tossing him a Westworld costume to disguise himself inside the park. "Strip," she commands. "Right now?" he asks, aghast. She's unmoved. "Yes. Now. "Fuck's sake," Sizemore mutters, humiliated.
Maeve's so pleased with herself:
But she's not done. When Sizemore stops at his underwear, she stops him. "No," she says, with a deadly pause. "All of it."
And just like that, the power dynamics shift. After years—nay,decades—of silent humiliation, forced to sit naked in a glass-walled laboratory while strange humans poke and prod her flesh and innards, Maeve gets her revenge. Westworld will never be the same.
