Guest can't die because the hosts are programmed not to kill them. The guns provided to everyone are somehow programmed to know who they are firing at or something like that.

And there is no friendly fire in the park for some reason. We know there are real bullets being used, since Paulo found one in Thandie Newton.

I assume the first death of a guest by a host will be via stabbing, head trauma or throwing someone off a cliff. Eventually the guns will start killing the guests.

Was studying for an exam, so didn't watch it. Caught up this weekend. Wasn't so hooked after the first episode but it got better and more intriguing as the show went on. The last episode was damn intriguing ending. I'm not terribly interested in Mcpoyle's character arc but whatevs.

It's a shame he wasn't in any of the milk scenes.

Anyone else think Bernard Lowe is a host created by Arnold?

I heard a theory that if Arnold's last name is Weber that Bernard Lowe and Arnold Weber are anagrams.

Had a son. He seems to talk to a woman who was his wife.

I'm assuming there are some Deckards in the show.

Just binge-watched all 5 episodes. I'm really liking this show so far. There are already a lot of questions, so I hope they don't keep on introducing new mysteries and puzzles. That may make this show boring. Also completely agree with one of the posts above that hope they don't make it another "Lost" kinda show. Few questions that I have so far:

1) Every time Deloros wakes up, what does that entail? Is that start of a new day? What happens to the guests during that time?

2) Do the creators of the hosts have the authority to call the hosts anytime they want? Or is it sometimes out of their control? Often times we see the hosts in the dark rooms talking to Bernard and other ppl. That can only happen when a host is killed or captured, right?

3) When Lawrence was already killed by the man in black, how come he was alive in the other city? Do they have multiple hosts of him in the park?

Thems some mighty fine questions, pardner.
I have no answers.
I done speculate that thars plenty of time-jumping going on. Ed Harris character will turn out to be also someone else, or something else. Not sure why he has "special privileges" in the park (FastPass?) that the operators just give him. Just that he is a "special guest" of some sort.

The logistics of running such a park are impossible for me to comprehend. I try not to let it overtake me while I watch, though.

1) I take it as a new day for her after she dies or is reset. I think each bot is on a different schedule and some reset after one day or if nobody bites on their storyline or is continually interacting with them. Others may just roam for awhile.

2)They can call at any time. The last episode had Bernard call Dolores in the middle of the night and she then returned back to the camp.

3)I think he just reset to the other city the next day(or reset cycle). I don't think it's an instantaneous thing.
