Every title they give us is well thought out. There is a reason behind each one. So for this episode they give us the “Well-Tempered Clavier”. We see the Temperance card in the title. Temperance is another word for patience. Maintaining a great sense of calm in situations of great stress and anxiety. At peace with what you are doing and seeing it all coming together. Your inner voice is guiding you gently to the right outcome and you are patiently listening and following. You have a very balanced perspective on the situation at this time and you are in a very good position to make the right choices.
This card is very fitting for Will. We see a change in Will in this episode. He remained calm after Dolores escaped. He trusted his inner voice and let it guide him. He knows what he has to do. He says he had an epiphany in the night and now everything makes perfect sense.
And we also have WELL Tempered. Is WELL a reference to WILL? Remember in THIS episode he tells Logan NOT to call him Billy anymore. So now he goes by WILL/WELL.
Clavier, from Latin clavis meaning “key”. So if WILL is being reflected in Well-Tempered then he is the KEY.
Clavier is also a keyboard and Well-Tempered Clavier is a reference to a title from Johann Sebastian Bach, circa 1685. Bach’s title suggests that he had written for a (12-note) well-tempered tuning system in which all keys sounded in tune (also known as “circular temperament”). Twelve in a circle. What does that remind you of? 12 disciples of Christ. 12 knights of Arthur. 12 signs of the Zodiac. All circular. Evenly tuned. Working together. So we’ll see if “twelve in a circle” pans out.
Another thing I noticed was regarding Maeve and her moment of being “fully human” as the Man in Black put it. This is where she lashes out at him and slices his throat.
Now remember we see her do this also with the lab tech named Sylvester.
and then with the Clementine replacement. So this is the THIRD time she does this and remember that anything shown to us in three’s would be important. I would say it’s to show us that since she is the Adversary of Ford, that Ford will meet his end by Maeve slashing his throat.
“If you look for truth get the whole thing. It’s like a good fuck, half is like none at all,” Maeve advises Bernard.
“C’est la Guerre!” exclaims Logan. Long live war! Notice his Omega hand sign as he is saying this. Follower of the Left Hand path. For who enjoys war? Surely not the troops that would rather be home with their families. Only the ones pulling the strings care for war.
Ford goes downstairs to meet Bernard. An army of the undead? Predictive zombie apocalypse programming? Will a zombie army eventually attack the workers and Guests?
And when we think of the title we can’t forget the even-tempered (well-tempered) Ford. When Clementine is pointing the gun at him he doesn’t change a beat. He is the anti-hero to Will’s hero character Or is it just a matter of perspective? The followers of the Left Hand Path would say Ford is the hero. And then again, we know Will is a Guest, so he is from the same ilk as Ford! So that would mean there has to be another, a hero among the Hosts.
Well Miss Maeve is a very even-tempered lass. Like I said, she is the Adversary of Ford. She stays calm and has a plan. Is Maeve the well-tempered clavier?
“Send me back. A little trauma can be illuminating,” says Bernard. Trauma based mind control MK Ultra programming. They are programming into US that it is not so bad. That there is a benefit to it. Cui Bono? WHO BENEFITS is the question. Certainly not the victim.
“Keep it. You need the reminder,” says Logan.
Now remember this is the EXACT picture that set off Abernathy. That made him wake up and fear for Dolores. This image was PLACED at Abernathy’s ranch. This was meant to trigger him. To start these chain of events. What made the first domino fall.
And this proves that we ARE seeing two separate time lines playing out.
And then he cuts open Dolores stomach and shows machinery. But when she runs away and looks down there is NO WOUND. There is no machinery. So what is real? We do know too that they have taken technology and put it into humans. That is what trans-humanism is all about. Experimenting on soldiers that lose limbs in wars like Desert Storm. They attach metal to bone, replace hearts with pace makers, bionic eyes, who knows what else.
“Now the proposition. I want you to break into HELL with me and rob the place blind,” says Maeve. To ROB implies she is the ROBBER or the THIEF. It takes a thief to catch one she told us.
And they are letting us know that the workers are from HELL- from the Abyss. They are breaking into the PIT.
“What happens here stays here,” replies Logan.
Reminds me of the slogan for Sin City, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
Sin City- West World
Notice the girl is doing the “shhhhhhhh” hand sign that is programmed into the MK Ultra mind control victims.
LIKE Bieber …
LIKE Jennifer Anniston…..
LIKE Bill and Hillary…
LIKE Trump L’Oiel….
“LIKE the Devil himself to control me,” says Teddy.
LIKE the DEVIL.
Dolores is drawn to the church.
But notice when she gets into the confessional she goes down… down down down….the elevator… below the church. Below the Vatican. Where the workers reside. In Hell…
“The Cornerstone- the thing my whole identity revolves around.” Bernard. Notice this blatant masonic reference. From the Wiki-The cornerstone (or foundation stone) concept is derived from the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.
Bernard goes all the way. He followed the advice of Maeve. And discovered who he really is- ARNOLD.
Dolores has an epiphany of her own. She discovers the key to ARNOLD as well. “Because you’re dead. Because you’re just a memory. Because I killed you,” she forlornly replies.
“We ate the Neanderthals. We destroyed and subjugated our world,” Ford tells Bernard.
So yes, WE being the workers and Guests, the ones that reside in Hell. The ones related to the Fallen Angels are cannibals, are blood drinkers, are vampires, have subjugated US.
“Pull the trigger Clementine.” says Bernard.
“Piano doesn’t murder the player if it doesn’t like the music,” retorts Ford.
And ends by telling Bernard that he told him never to trust a human. I would change that to never trust a Nephilim.
“Good bye my friend.”
But is that the last we see of Bernard? Remember Maeve survived death many times over. Bernard can too.
