Westworld Season 2回归

其实已经回归了好久,只是节前一直没有时间看,直到昨晚才看了第二季第一集。在我看来,本季剧情,将会围绕三个人展开,同时全面战争在所难免,有很多主要角色也都会死亡。

一、Bernard

第一集的时间线,除了回忆第一季的部分除外,分为了Delos公司在事故发生2周后正式介入调查及以后,以及事故刚发生完以后,即众hosts觉醒叛变后到Delos公司抵达前的两部分。因此,结尾时Bernard说自己杀了所有人,应该也是在这两周时间内发生的,而具体动机及过程,则会在第二季中逐渐展现。

就目前的情况判断,Bernard以上的行为动机,和Dolores密切相关。主要证据是本集开头和结尾预告时,Dolores说的(特别是结尾预告,如果真的是对Bernard说的,在我看来是大概率):

所以在第二季中,Bernard的隐藏记忆成了关键要素之一,故事应该也会围绕着Bernard及其隐藏记忆展开。而和这份隐藏记忆密切相关,同时也是第二季另一位核心人物则是Dolores。

二、Dolores

不得不说,Dolores第一季傻白甜的形象,成功迷惑了所有人,让人觉得她其实是最无害的角色,但和现实中一样,越是看起来无害的人,其危险性可能就越大。

我们先从本集开头,Dolores和Arnold的对话说起。

Arnold说的梦境,应该是曾经发生过的事实,即Arnold在和Dolores说话时想要做的事情——牺牲自己来成全Dolores的觉醒和升级(同样的,本季中Bernard应该也会有一样的行为),换言之,Arnold将自己对于人工智能的所有希望都赌在了Dolores的身上,关于这点,可以参考回顾第一季时的一个镜头:

但是,对于自己的all in,Arnold也有着自己的担忧:

Dolores究竟会选择哪条路,Arnold是不确定的,因为这也是Arnold想要实现的目标,如果Dolores有着非常明确和固定的决策路径,那和目前被操纵着的情况,丝毫没有区别。所以Dolores其实是一把双刃剑,而在梦想和不确定之间,Arnold选择了豪赌,并且愿意为理想献身。

所以,虽然上文说了,本季将会围绕着Bernard的隐藏记忆展开,但本季剧情的导向,将会是Dolores究竟会选择哪条路来实现人工智能的完全觉醒,以及觉醒后的发展方向。

另外要说的是,Dolores的地位,可能不像我们想象的那么低,作为理想主义青年的Arnold,是完全有理由有可能为Dolores弄一个超级管理员权限的,关于这一点,我觉得很多镜头已经很明显了:

Dolores如此自信的说自己将扮演最后一个角色,是因为她已经回想起之前的所有事情,以及自身存在的目的。关于这一点,本集中有着更为明确的说明:

Dolores的这段话,信息量很大,对于现实世界以及局势有着如此清晰的认识,只能说明,35年前的Dolores,不仅成功逃出西部世界,也尝试在现实世界中生存,但最终的结果,则是无法生存,也因此,这一次的Dolores,结合之前的经验,已经想出了一个更加周全的计划来反抗自己既定的命运,但这个计划是否能如Arnold所愿,实现人工智能的理想国,则很难说,毕竟,本集中Dolores说的更多的是these violent delights have violent ends,而且根据海报上的Chaos takes control,所以全面战争应该在所难免。

另外需要提到的一点是,Dolores的小奶狗Terry,其作用可能也会比之前想的要大很多,同时,Terry会不会也是一道保险措施,这点也有待考察。关于保险措施这点,我需要补充说明一下。本集中提及保险措施的地方只有一个,就是在说到Dolores之前的剧情父亲Peter Abernathy:

35年前,Dolores作为漩涡的中心,在Delos公司平息了事态之后,必然会被严加看管起来,手段包括限制其性格的有害因素(傻白甜角色),以及在其身边安插保险措施(Peter Abernathy),所以这个保险措施,Delos才会那么急于收回,目的是为了在即将到来的风暴中占据制高点。

但是,Terry如果真的作为一项保险措施,则不会是Delos公司的安排,只能是Robert老爷子的意思。

三、Robert/William

首先要明确的是,Robert老爷子在第一季中出现时,真的全部是肉身,本集中的特写也能说明其肉身真的是死的透透的:

但是,Robert这么深谋远虑的人,会不给自己留后路吗?仅从我们知道的,老爷子复制出自己的少年形象可以和William就目前状况正常对话来看,Robert给自己做的备份也绝不止少年备份这么简单:

这段对话,其实信息量是本集中最大的一段,就目前而言,我们做以下几点概况或猜想:

1、西部世界,分为了Arnold的迷宫,以及Robert的游戏两部分,William确实已经到达了Arnold的迷宫(即人工智能的觉醒,hosts与人类对等,西部世界可以产生真正的后果);

2、Robert的游戏已经启动了,而启动事件就是Robert肉身的死亡,即hosts觉醒酒会,所以Robert才说,游戏开始于结束的地方(指西部世界中,人类的死亡),而游戏结束于William开始的地方,目前看来应该指的是Dolores,毕竟William真正开始玩这个游戏,就是始于Dolores。所以,相对于Arnold押注Dolores,Robert同样押注William。William在本季,将会以Robert的代言(行)人的角色开展剧情。海报上,代表人类的帽子是William的代表物品之一,被代表Dolores的机器鹰压在脚下,旁边还有着血迹,是否可以理解为William在本季中的命运也将终结(这也符合了Dolores将会成为最后一个人的自述)。

关于Robert的游戏,延伸一下:

Robert的游戏,应该还涉及到现实世界的一部分,大胆假设,西部世界内的数据,其实是由Robert传送出去的,至于传送到哪里,不知道这一季中会不会出现端倪。

而之所以要偷传数据出去,我觉得和Delos公司的目的也有着密切的关系。

如果只是单纯玩游戏,收集顾客体验就好了,但为什么要收集DNA?首先要明确的是,可以来乐园的顾客,都是有着巨额财富的阶层,Delos公司在收集他们DNA以及反应的同时,又能造出惟妙惟肖的机器人,是不是可以说,Delos公司是有能力用含有真人DNA的机器人来代替现实世界中的真人的手段的?

虽然Robert的游戏本质目前还不明朗,但就目前已有信息而言,Robert曾明确反对Arnold沉浸在人工智能觉醒的事情上,也曾明确和Bernard说不要犯同样的错误,所以Robert应该是不会关心人工智能的权益,甚至本身还自带反人工智能的属性。基于之前的假设,Robert其实也是反对公司的。老爷子布的到底是什么样的局?其心中是否也存在一个理想国?如果有,这个理想国会是什么样的呢?

3、William必须要找到的那扇门,目前没法去理解。

但无论是门也好,或是Robert说的一切都是代码也好,总是能让我想起The Matrix的设定,所以到最后,会不会出现整个西部世界其实都是巨大的虚拟现实,而我们的Weo在打开了那扇门以后见到了总工程师的场景,真的不好说,但应该不会出现这么俗套的剧情,最多就是对经典的致敬而已。不过说到The Matrix,西部世界演到现在,对于现实世界的具体情况,也一直没有说明,我们目前一直假设现实世界与我们生活的现状世界是一样的,但如果出现了如The Matrix那样的设定,我觉得也不用太意外。

4、Robert说的,游戏会找上William,这句话怎么听,都觉得游戏不像是一个事物,而是一个人。所以游戏到底指的是Dolores呢?还是Robert埋下的其他线呢?

四、其他

关于剧中人工智能的发展,本集中有两个地方需要关注:

第一,是作为本季第一集的片头以及片尾镜头中,均出现了类似神经元的要素:

第二,是Bernard提到的潜意识网络:

关于Bernard说的潜意识网络,应该是Arnold和Bernard计划中的一环,毕竟,人工智能觉醒计划,利用这一网络实现点的初级觉醒,以及利用网络实现人工智能整体的高级整体觉醒,效果会差很多。这个网络,我觉得在本季剧情中,应该会被Dolores用来升级战争。而前面提到的神经元要素,是否和Robert的游戏相关(特别是西部世界外的部分,比如Robert自己的军队之类),也有待观察。
