Stubbs, who is in charge of security at the park, goes to investigate the signal of a missing employee. He tells his subordinate to keep in touch with him and to keep track of him. Yet, there is no cause for alarm after his signal is lost and he disappears. It is as if he is forgotten and no longer exists as an employee or security officer. No searches are made for him; there is no reference to his disappearance. See more »

Dr. Robert Ford: Credit where credit is due, Bernard. You built them in all the hosts. Including yourself.
Bernard Lowe: Then you could've stopped me at any time... So, why...?

5 January 2018 | by WubsTheFadgerSee all my reviews

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

This is the best episode in the series so far. This episode drops another twist in front of us that has been hidden throughout the series.

Anthony Hopkins delivers the best performance by far. His character is cynical , evil, and devilishly smart.

The amount of realizations in this episode is astounding. The ease at which this series tells its story is wonderful.

Pros: Great performance by Anthony Hopkins, stunning plot twist, clever realizations, and masterful storytelling

Cons: None

Overall Rating: 9.8/10
