Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) advances her quest to make the human race her own little puppet in the new episode of Westworld Season 4.
Sunday night’s new episode, titled Fidelity, showed Charlotte resenting the growing opposition to her turning every human on Earth into her own little pets.
There are those who try to stop them, like Bernard, who previously teased that he “saw a way” to save humanity, and Caleb’s now-grown daughter, C (Aurora Perrineau).

C: There are those who try to stop them, like Bernard, who previously teased that he saw a way to save mankind, and Caleb’s now-grown daughter, C (Aurora Perrineau).
The episode begins in a playground with children being pushed on swings when a young black girl approaches an Asian man and tells him things she shouldn’t know.
She asks him to come with her and they go together and they come across a man and a woman who tell him his behavior has become “problematic”.
The woman says she doesn’t know how much time he has unless he comes with her, and he knows it… but as they leave, everyone around them freezes.
The young man asks Jay what’s going on while the young girl says, “They’re coming,” and tells him, “Don’t move.”
A number of faceless human clones walk through all of the frozen masses, checking everyone for runaways, but noticing any of them and walking away.
However, a fly lands on the man’s face and he blinks it away as the clone turns and strangles him while the others escape.
They all get out of a black van as the woman and girl take Jay to a safe house as the woman introduces Jay to some of the others at the house.
The woman gets Jay a sleeping bag and tells him that she knows this is hard and that there are things they can’t fix, as much as they want to.
The woman tells the young girl that she is proud of her and that she reminds her of him so much when the girl checks on Jay.
She asks if he would like to say hello to her father since the girl as a child is revealed to be Frankie, Caleb’s daughter.
Jay says there’s no point in leaving those messages saying her dad is gone just like his brother.
Jay leaves when Frankie asks the radio if he’s out there as the episode switches to adult Frankie (Aurora Perrineau) driving with Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) before the title sequence begins.
The first episode of season 4 teased that the season takes place seven years after the events of season 3, although the time jump was apparently even larger.
Last week’s episode – Zhuangzi – revealed that the mystery C was actually Frankie, the adult daughter of Caleb (Aaron Paul) and Uwade (Nozipho Mclean).
She had searched for her father for years, although he was long thought to be dead.

While it seemed like they might find his body in the desert, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) found Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) buried in the desert instead, with the episode’s teaser implying that they would bring her back to life.
While still unclear, it’s possible that the various stories are actually taking place simultaneously in different timelines, although this remains unclear.
The season seems set to lead to an epic battle between Charlotte and her clone army and the remnants of the human resistance.

One of the biggest questions the show has yet to answer is the fate of Caleb, who fans learned in the fourth episode had been dead for 23 years and Charlotte revealed that this current version is the 278th version of him is.
Christina (Evan Rachel Wood) also learned in last week’s episode that she can get literally anyone to do whatever they want with her “mind,” though it’s unclear how she’ll use those abilities.
There are only two episodes left of Westworld Season 4 – Metanoia on Sunday, August 7 and the season finale, Que Sera, Sera on Sunday, August 14 on HBO.
