*** Is not crude, is a real observation. The girl would do short circuit after oral sex.

* We don't know exactly how Maeve reprogrammed herself. It's conceivable she installed herself with detailed knowledge of every narrative in Westworld. If escape is her goal, then knowing precisely how the Hosts are scheduled would play into that.

[[folder: How does Maeve know how the storylines go?]]
It's unclear exactly how much time has passed since Maeve got her core stuff boosted, but how does she know how every storyline in the park will go (down to Armistice's "you damn fool" line)? Is she somehow connected to the other hosts? Is there a big database of storylines she has access to? Has she actually ''lived through'' all the storylines, like in Film/GroundhogDay, so she knows what will happen because of that?

*** It's doubtful the butchers are hosts however-- they have too many human mistakes. Who would program a butcher host to have sex with the deactivated hosts? Who would program a butcher host to make a profit on that? Who would program a butcher host to try to become a behavioral tech?

* It's not like every single host is superbly attractive. The Confederate general, that malfunctioning sheriff in the first episode, etc. As noted, fat or unattractiveness can be an important narrative trait.

* Fat people did exist in the 1800s, so it's not anachronistic. As for narratives, perhaps they played BigFun or FatBastard characters, like the RailroadBaron.

** They get a chance to repeat quests or take new ones they didn't earlier. I don't see why would bother anyone more than starting a videogame again from the beginning.

Not that I want to indulge in fat shaming, but in the scene where Peter and Walter are put in cold storage, there are at least two hosts that did not just put on a few extra pounds, but that are really very heavy. Obviously they would have have to be made like that. I have trouble imagining a Wild West narrative that would benefit from having hosts so heavy that they would have to have trouble moving and maybe even breathing to be realistic.

** It is not confirmed but it is possible that the butchers are also hosts who don't know they are hosts.

* Some guests visit the park for a few days or a week, and many host's loops seem to reset for their benefit. But other guests appear to stay for an extended vacation. So what happens when a guest watches everyone in Sweetwater get killed during the stage show with Hector, then they go on a week long trip to a distant place like Pariah, only to return to Sweetwater and find everyone alive and well again?
