- Ford's statement that life evolved on this planet... life may have existed on Mars at one time - park geology is primarily 'red' rock and desert - the park looks like it's located in a crater - everything in the park is 'created' - operations are underground - this week's cryptic clue about the constellation Orion and last week's clue "follow the red arrow to the place where the snake lays it's eggs" - sounds like navigation using the stars to find the maze
Is he a 1st gen host, allowed to survive and to believe he's really a guest? So that he can evolve? Or is he really a billionaire guest? I'm not sure if the boy was a clue - a host programmed to believe they're a guest. And I can't help but think there is a connection between the maze and the introduction to religion that Anthony Hopkins seems to excited about.
I haven't watched E3 yet and thus my thoughts may be negated by that, but I'm wondering if the MiB and the creepy boy are 1st gen prototypes...using the background/physical characteristics of their techie makers. Notice how the creepy boy was British - just like Ford, and was wearing the crisp black and white short pants outfit, whereas when Ford was dressing down the arrogant tech dude for his shitty new narrative, Ford was dressed in black and white also, the adult version. I think the boy is Ford as a child (or a twin brother) that has been "recreated".
The MiB is different - I don't think he's a host per se. Haven't sorted my thoughts out on him yet but I think he's a newcomer that somehow has a history with Ford and the creation of the hosts. Like maybe he's trying to figure out the secret to eternal life, ie do a consciousness dump into a host body to live forever.
that he had been coming here for 30 years, and that he was "born" there. I agree that he could be a candidate for Arnold...especially since the milk drinker was shouting for Arnold...wasn't he indicating that his actions were due to Arnold?
Bernard is to blame...at least for some of this, and Dr Ford suspects something, because he reminds Bernard that the hosts don't feel anything unless you tell them to. Bernard has been spending a lot of time with Dolores, because he feels she suffers too much and I think he's trying to give her cognitive skills to become more aware, thus the reading and the book discussions and his questions about her role and whether or not she's choose to be good or bad. Maybe we'll find out that Bernard and Arnold are in communication, that they're doing experiments to see if the hosts can become self-aware.

Yes and then there is the whole scene with the host being covered up by one of the techs, who has to be reminded they don't get cold and they don't feel shame. Seems like Ford is constantly driving that message home.
Also I'm liking the HoBaW-style wall of faces in Ford's office
