#3: Bernard's Flashes
Much of this episode was following Bernard, in three timelines no less, as he tries to make sense of his own reality. In the timeline that takes place on the beach, Bernard seems to have little memory of the last two weeks. We do see quick flashbacks of what may have happened, including Bernard being present when the control room staff was massacred, and Bernard firing off a Westworld Security issues P90. We know Bernard is capable of murder, but this level of violence is something we haven't seen from him. Also in his flashbacks in a shot of Peter Abernathy. Assuming that these scenes are indeed from the last two weeks, it means that he and Charlotte were successful in locating him.

#2: Bloody Homage to the Film
Midway through the episode, Bernard, Charlotte and a few survivors are fleeing through the desert when they come upon what appears to be Westworld technician leaning against a buggy. It is of course a trap set by a group of hosts. This bloody moment is a direct reference to a similar moment in the 1973 "Westworld" film, when lead character Martin is fleeing for his life, and comes across a similar scene. In the film, the technician is alive and trying to flee, but a few seconds later is killed by the Gunslinger. With the show and the film being so different, it's nice to see these little touches, and we will be sure to point out more as the season goes on.

#1: Bernard Killed Them
At the end of the episode, Bernard and company are looking at a figurative sea of bodies, floating in a literal sea. Nobody seems to know where the water came from, and it's stated that the lake shouldn't be there. Bernard may have the answers however, as he ends the episode saying "I killed them". Earlier in the episode when he and Charlotte are in her secret underground bunker, Bernard accesses what he calls the Host's "Mesh Network"; a web that wirelessly connects all the hosts together. He openly does this to help Charlotte locate Peter Abernathy, but our theory is that Bernard also sent a command to all the hosts he could access, telling them to go to that spot. Not realizing that it was now flooded, they all drowned, thus Bernard unintentionally "Killed all of them."
