Who’s winning this fight in ‘Westworld’: Dolores or Maeve?

“Westworld” season three promises us a lot of the same things we've loved about the show: humans questioning the nature of their reality and smug people getting their comeuppance. One new thing we’re most hyped for, though, is what seems to be the ultimate showdown between two of the show’s biggest protagonists: Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), the country-girl-turned-rebel who started this whole thing, and Maeve (Thandie Newton), the madame-turned-show-stealer. Who will win?

Everything started with Dolores, and everything will end with Dolores. The first season of “Westworld” introduced her as the sweet girl-next-door whose sentience unveiled a fiery rebel that literally set a whole world on fire. Now, she’s looking to do the same to our world.

The thing about Dolores is that she’s actually kind of scary. Once her sweet shell melted away, she became a cold, ruthless killer that could really give less of a care as to who she hurts, including her old dedicated (cough, whipped, cough) boyfriend, Teddy (James Marsden). If anyone’s winning the Dolores-Maeve fight, it’s Dolores.

Dolores is just shiny chump change when compared to Maeve’s golden self-worth. Beneath those drawn-out soliloquies and that army of mindless fools behind her, Dolores is kind of…lame. Maeve, on the other hand, was the first to bust out of Westworld of her own volition and nearly escaped by herself. She also willingly died multiple times to find freedom which, when you think about it, is psycho but so, so cool.

Another advantage Maeve has over Dolores is that she lacks any sort of hubris. Sure, she’s confident and a little bit arrogant, but at the end of the day her motives are far less selfish (and dominance-driven). Dolores is getting set up to be the Icarus of “Westworld”; our money’s on Maeve to throw her towards the sun.
