I don’t know whose smarter, and more powerfully, Dolores, Maeve, the humans, or this mysterious Arnold. Maeve (Thandie Newton) has managed to scare, threaten, and force two technicians, Felix and Sylvester, into doing her bidding. She got a tour of the facility, had the whole operation explained to her, and made them give her programming a boost. One of those boosts, was turning her intelligence level to the maximum. Not that Maeve really needed it, since she’s gotten this far at just a level 14. If Maeve, a mere host at the beck and call of human control is able to take two humans hostage, then who here is really the most powerfully?

Even though Maeve is working her way up on the power scale, she still has a ways to go before she can take on the big guns. Elsie (Shannon Woodward) is still trying to figure out the mystery behind the stray host, and comes across an abandoned warehouse with computers generating information out of the park. And with further investigation, Elsie informs Bernard that the person feeding into out of the park info is Thersea. Before Elsie can download all the evidence she needs, a mystery person grabs her from behind.

Elsie isn’t the only one digging into her coworkers business. Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) sneaks away, and finds a cottage hidden away in the park, with a family of Hosts that Ford (Anthony Hopkins) has built. And that family has special meaning to Ford, because it is his family, including the family dog. But why has Ford built his own family? But a more important question that Ford should be asking is not, what will Bernard do with this information, but who is this Arnold? Be it the real Arnold, or someone claiming to be him, they have gotten into the head of young Ford, and told him to kill the family dog. Arnold is becoming a bigger threat with each passing epsiode, having now told two Hosts to kill. While both victims have been Hosts themselves, what if the next victim is a human?

Teddy (James Marsden) isn’t the good guy we thought he was. Turns out, on his adventure to find Wyatt with the Man in Black (Ed Harris) it was revealed that Teddy had actually helped Wyatt escape, and had helped kill his fellow soldiers in order to do so.

Lee (Simon Quarterman) isn’t handling the rejection of his new park very well, and is drinking himself out of a job. He could care less when he is cut off at the bar, or threatened to be fired. He shows this by urinating all over the control system, when Theresa (Sidse Babett Knudsen) comes in and introduces the Board Representative, Charrlotte Hale, whom Lee had eariler attempted to flirt with, and states that she is here to observe the park.

Could Charlottle’s arrival be a coincidence, or does she know something about the leak of information?
