A spot of horror, a significant slice of backstory (hey, Arnold!) and a few choice Alice in Wonderland references helped make the third episode of HBO's Westworld the most satisfying yet. We’re three episodes in and the storylines of Westworld are denser than the layers of rock Mesa Hub is built into.

Rog and Big D attempt to unravel the mystery surrounding Dr. Ford's relationship with his old partner, Arnold, while avoiding fallin...
