Dolores and Ford flashbacks

edited November 2016 in Westworld
It is clear that we have incredible editing and film-making. But there are a few things we might have overlooked.
In Episode 3, The Stray, Dr Ford was explaining Bernard about the Bicameral Mind Theory and we see Dr Ford's flashback as to how the hosts were learning how to dance:

And Episode 8 shows the SAME flashback with the SAME camera angles. But this time, it's from Dolores's perspective.

Why? are two different people, one host and one "human" having the SAME DETAILED FLASHBACK?

  • ill answer your wrong post anyway,  Ford can see through Dolores eyes, just like when he looked through Hectors eyes to watch Teresa and Hales conversation

    One thing is looking at events through a host's eyes for a "special project" like Hector's. Memories however are given to hosts in detailed because, as we were just told by Felix/Sylvestre, memories are just past event relived by hosts. Unlike humans, hosts have a very detailed recollection of what happened in the past. 
    But here we have Ford remembering detailed events from 30 yrs or more.
  • How do we know these are actually memories from Ford's perspective? They could very well just be flashbacks that the show is giving us for context. For example, we see Ford in the past from a third person viewpoint - it couldn't be from his own perspective if he's looking at himself.

    Because we also see flashbacks to young anthony hopkins. So, it's pretty much from Ford's perspective side of the story.
    Same as Bernard's flashbacks. He sees himself hugging his son when he passed away. 
    Same as Meave's flashbacks.
    And so on and on and on. We are pretty much seeing flashbacks from hosts up to this point except Ford.
  • Yes, but what I'm saying is that we see young Ford from a third person view. We know/assume that Ford is human. He can't see himself from that viewpoint in his memories.

    Bernard's "memories" are backstories. They didn't actually happen, which is why we're seeing him in them.

    We also see MiB and Meave from a first and third person view when they're tellling their story or having flashbacks.
    Same way as Bernard has flashbacks to talking to his wife and hugging his son when he passed away. It's from his perspective, first person, AND a third person perspective.

    Bernard fixing up a robot but has a picture of his son.
    It's quite possibly the same reason why Ford has a "host family" who were a gift by Arnold.
    They were created to make them feel more "human".

  • All I'm saying is that it's possible that those flashbacks of the building of the park weren't actually meant to be taken as Ford's literal memories, but of simple, actual flashbacks. Not every visual from the past has to be a physical memory that someone is having.
