Nicholas approaches a mysterious woman sitting at a table outside a mansion in The Raj — a Delos park based on British Colonial India. They discuss a shared passion for hunting. The exchange brings them back to the Woman’s room. Wanting to have sex but sensing Nicholas may be a host, she proposes a method to prove his humanity and loads a revolver: “Simplest way to know for sure.” She fires, Nicholas falls to the ground, but the bullet doesn’t kill him: he’s human. Appeased, they have sex.
Later, at a campsite, the Woman notices something is off: hosts are off their normal loops. She and Nicholas search the camp and find two dead guests. A host holds them at gunpoint: “These violent delights have violent ends.” Nicholas attempts to intervene, but the host kills him with a single shot. The Woman grabs a gun and flees. A Bengal tiger emerges from the jungle and chases her to the park boundary — the edge of a bluff overlooking a large lake. The tiger charges at the Woman as she fumbles to load her revolver. She gets one shot in, just as the animal tackles her off the cliff.
The Woman wakes up on the shore of a river in Westworld, washed up at the spot where the Delos PMCs will find the dead tiger lying beside her eleven days later. Momentarily relieved to be alive, she’s cornered by a group of Ghost Nation warriors and captured.
Later that night, Dolores frees her father, who has been a captive of the Confederados. As Dolores comforts Peter, he snaps back into their old narrative; Dolores is pained by memories of the simpler times. Peter starts to glitch: “I need to get to the train.” Seeking help, Dolores brings in Bernard. He runs a diagnostic, and determines Peter is wildly unstable and jumping between old roles. Bernard discovers the source of the malfunction — a large encryption key in Abernathy’s system, the one that Hale and Lee placed there at the end of Season One. Dolores realizes Delos is using her father to smuggle information out of the park.
