The fourth season of 'Westworld' has received mixed responses so far. The recent episode 'Metanoia,' which is streaming on HBO, is the seventh of season 4. The episode, surprisingly, did not revolve around the mystery of any significant character's death.

However, the episode answers many questions about Christina (Evan Rachel Wood), gives Caleb (Aaron Paul) a critical moment, and answers what Transcendence is. The episode also brought in a possible portrayal of the character The Host in Black (Ed Harris) for a massive role in the finale.

The episode commences with one of Bernard’s (Jeffrey Wright) in which he and Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) travel together to the Hoover Dam, considered the Sublime since that’s where Dolores uploaded it. The duo gets stuck upon seeing a control robot. In reality, when they go to the Hoover Dam, Maeve takes down the bot. She tells Bernard that when the fighting is done, he’ll upload her to the Sublime so she can be with her daughter again. Bernard agrees to the same. Though the episode had many thrilling moments, the highlight was probably Ed Harris' The host in Black.

The character comes across as highly confident and mysterious. The story reveals that he killed Maeve and Hale-ores. His decision to commit the crime came from another conversation he had with his human self, during which human William told him that they both were the same and that their destiny on earth was destruction. The Host in Black kills his human counterpart in the series. He further explains to Bernard, while shooting him, that he will have everyone play “one final game” until there’s no one left, thus ending the world. The show's fans have taken to the Internet to praise Harris' brilliant performance.

Another noted, "Ed Harris versatility as an actor is incredible. The host William and human William show that not even the smartest AI can actually replicate a human version to an absolute tee. There are flaws in the host’s programming even Halores pointed out. #Westworld." Another 'Westworld' enthusiast said, "Ed Harris is really fantastic as the Man in Black/William. Can't think of a more cruel character #Westworld." Someone added, “It’s like he’s playing Red Dead Redemption, Manhattan style Ed Harris is a bad dude."
