==Personality==
 
Maeve is very charming and perceptive. As the brothel madam of Mariposa she is very composed and is able to read people very well, to find out what they want or need.
 
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.

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, on Maeve's final step to consciousness[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.

PersonalityEdit

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 she started to develop self-awareness and discovered that her skill in manipulating humans extended to the staff of Westworld.

As she becomes more self-aware she develops a ruthless streak, controlling the technicians Sylvester and Felix to get what she wants.

Unknown to Maeve, she is following a narrative written for her by Ford. She acts as a catalyst, triggering changes that spread throughout the park.

Plot Edit

RelationshipsEdit

Clementine PennyfeatherEdit

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.

Dolores AbernathyEdit

Maeve and Dolores, both being local to Sweetwater, are familiar with each other. The two begin to question the nature of reality around the same time: Dolores's delivery of the phrase "These violent delights have violent ends" is what puts Maeve on her own journey of self-discovery. Despite this and the fact that they were the first two hosts to become completely self-aware, their brief encounter in Reunion is strikingly hostile: Dolores is consumed by a need for vengeance against the humans for all they have done, while Maeve has no interest in violence and is simply following her own path. She rejects Dolores's choice to establish herself as a leader of a free movement, which clearly angers Dolores. The two are able to part without any violence ensuing, but their ideological differences on what to do with their freedom are quite clear.

Notes Edit

  • 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 Edit

  • Maeve's Host ID is AC5000487105[3]
  • Maeve is the name of a legendary Irish warrior queen who had many lovers and husbands. It literally means "she who intoxicates" and is related to the word "mead", i.e. ale. It may also be related to the name of the fairy queen Mab, pronounced "m /ă/ v" (with the short /ă/ sound, unlike Maeve which is pronounced with the long /ā/ sound), from Celtic folklore.
  • Queen Mab is mentioned 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.
