Revision as of 18:55, April 27, 2018

The cunning and seductive Mariposa madam Maeve Millay is finely attuned to your desires; her intuition and perception will surely impress.

–Aeden, http://www.delosdestinations.com/

Maeve gets off the train, at the end of "The Bicameral Mind" at which point, we shift to handheld camera, which we’d held back on throughout the entire season until one moment with her, and one moment with Dolores, when Teddy comes to rescue her.

–Jonathan Nolan[1]


Maeve Millay is a Main Character and a Host in Westworld who is a brothel madam in the local Mariposa Saloon. She is one of the first Hosts who appears to question her reality, after a series of flashback events - and an apparently chance encounter with Dolores Abernathy in the street, outside the Mariposa Saloon.

Personality

Maeve is charming, perceptive, and manipulative. She runs the brothel in the Mariposa Saloon and is designed to be able to understand the needs of her guests.

After her Season One encounter with Dolores


As she becomes self-aware she develops a ruthless streak, as seen when she threatens to kill Sylvester and later slices his throat open as a demonstration of her new abilities. Since Maeve was programmed to escape, her consciousness was triggered in her encounter with the Man in Black which due to her Reveries activated her motherly instincts, this was fully potentialized with Dolores whispers in her ears. Her consciousness tends to protect those of her own kind, as she is seen shaken by Clementine lobotomization, when she realises that Bernard is a host and she tells him that both of them deserve a better life, and later sparing Hector since he couldn't leave Westworld.

Plot

Relationships

Clementine Pennyfeather

Maeve is shown to have a very motherly bond with Clementine, often scolding her for not treating herself better. Even still, Maeve is quick to send Clementine off to do her dirty work for her. After the original Clementine is replaced, Maeve is overcome with grief and attacks the replacement.

Notes

  • In the episode "The Bicameral Mind", the moment where Maeve gets off the train marks a "new phase", not just for Maeve (she now has free will), but for the other hosts as well. The showrunners wanted to highlight this moment visually, so they changed the method of filming the tracking shot when Maeve exited the train. Up to this point, tracking shots had always been filmed using Steadicam or dolly mounted cameras, but when Maeve leaves the train, "for the first time in the series, we're seeing handheld photography."[2]

Trivia

  • Maeve's Host ID is AC5000487105[3]
  • Queen Mab, pronounced "m /ă/ v" (with the short /ă/ sound, unlike Maeve which is pronounced with the long /ā/ sound), is a character in Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet. In Shakespeare's play, Queen Mab is the fairy (an immortal and magical creature) who is responsible for bringing dreams to sleeping people. This Queen Mab is a malevolent hag who punishes unchaste ladies by blistering their lips and making knots in their hair that cause horrid oozing sores. She is tiny, and no larger than the image engraved on a stone in a ring.
  • Queen Mab is also a fairie from Celtic folklore. Shakespeare did not create her himself.
