'''Maeve Millay''' is a main character and a [[host]] in [[Westworld (Location)|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]].
   
==[[Season One|Season 1]]==
+
==Personality==
==="[[The Original]]"===
+
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.
Maeve watches as [[Teddy Flood]] declines the advances of [[Clementine Pennyfeather]]. Maeve is listening and says that he has to pay in one way or another, whatever he does. He's not listening however. Through the window he sees [[Dolores Abernathy]] coming out of a store and he leaves the bar without speaking again to the women, before running across the street to her. The questions and answers continue in voice-over: "Do you ever feel inconsistencies in your world? Or repetitions?"
 
"All lives have routine, mine's no different." she says. Later, Maeve is in the saloon when [[Hector Escaton]] and his gang come to rob the safe.<ref>[[The Original]]</ref>
 
   
==="[[Chestnut]]"===
+
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.
Another day, Maeve is giving her standard introduction speech, about the little voice, to a newly arrived guest. While she speaks we see her remember being attacked by a native American with an axe. She's dressed in farmers' clothing and has a [[Homestead Girl|small girl]], most likely her daughter, with her. The new guest sees she's distressed and gets up, excusing himself. Maeve doesn't seem to notice him leave.
 
[[File:Maeve_and_child.jpg|thumb|Maeve flashes back to a memory of protecting her possible Host [[Homestead Girl|daughter]].]]
 
We see Maeve in [[Analysis Mode]] undergoing a review, she's sitting on a stool while a man talks. He asks her "what did it say?" she answers that "This is the new world etc." The man examines her and can't see the problem, can't see why her success rate has dropped. They decide to double her "aggression" in a last attempt to get her numbers back up.
 
   
We see Maeve being decommissioned, [[Elsie Hughes|Elsie]] is examining her, she doesn't approve of the extra aggression "those morons" have added. She saves Maeve's current config and makes some small, precisely targeted, adjustments. Her assistant asks if they dream,. Elsie says they don't, but that they do have the concept of dreams as a safety precaution. She notes that Maeve has some physical discomfort and schedules a full physical examination at her next rotation. Elsie passes her as fit and puts her back to work. We see Maeve flirting, very successfully, with a guest. Elsie's adjustments have worked and she's back on form.
+
As she becomes more self-aware she develops a ruthless streak, controlling the technicians Sylvester and Felix to get what she wants.
   
Teddy and Maeve talk, about their various sins, they seem friendly.
+
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.
   
Soon a guest shoots Teddy, repeatedly. Maeve shows mild disapproval but remembers a previous violent episode. In a dream she remembers being happy with her daughter on the farm, but it becomes confused with her being attacked. She runs for her daughter and locks the door of the farmhouse, getting the shotgun.

The door opens on the [[Man in Black]], she tries to shoot him but with no effect. Maeve counts backwards to wake herself.

[[File:Maeve2_ep2.jpg|thumb|Maeve awakes on the operation table, disoriented and scared.]]
+
===[[Clementine Pennyfeather]]===
She wakes on the examination table during her physical; and two technicians are cleaning up an MRSA infection in her abdomen. She opens her eyes and looks around her - scared. They see her moving and are taken off guard. They try to control her with no luck, blaming each other. She threatens them with a scalpel, telling them to keep their hands off her. She escapes from the room and runs, holding her abdomen together.
+
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 Abernathy]]===
  +
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.
   
She finds herself in an area where damaged hosts are repaired, she sees Teddy with the gunshot wounds. While she's watching, the two technicians retrieve her. They hide the fact that she awoke and behaved strangely.<ref>[[Chestnut]]</ref>

* 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."<ref>http://uk.ign.com/articles/2016/12/05/westworld-creators-on-the-season-finale-reveals-fords-plan-and-what-to-expect-in-season-2</ref>
As guests are revealed to be coming to the park in 20 minutes, the Westworld employees decides to jam Hector's groups' weapons to end the heist early. Hector tells Maeve that the figure is a "shade" that the Native Americans make figurines of. They believe them to be from hell, sent to oversee our world. Maeve tells Hector that she thought she was crazy, yet she knows she got shot in the stomach and that she saw the protective suit standing over her, even though it later seemed like it never happened due to no resulting wound. Maeve uses a blade to cut into her own stomach, then makes Hector dig out the bullet shrapnel inside, convincing Maeve that she is not crazy at all. Maeve begins to kiss Hector passionately as bullets fire through the door.<ref>[[Dissonance Theory]]</ref>
 
==="[[Contrapasso]]"===
 
Employees [[Felix Lutz]] and [[Sylvester]] are working on Maeve; removing the injury she had inflicted on her stomach to remove the bullet, and a few bullet holes to her body. Felix is curious of her incision, he realizing it was as if they were looking for something within her abdomen. When Felix is left alone, he goes to the cabinets to put away an item, what looks like a dead bird on a tray.
 
[[file:Maeve wakes up again.jpg|thumb|Maeve is discovered awake on her gurney once again.]]
 
Later, Sylvester tells Felix they have another Host to work on, but as it wheels up on the gurney, Felix is stunned to see it is once again Maeve. Sylvester begins removing the bullets again, one they apparently had just done, leaving Felix confused. It's though he has have flashbacks just like some of the Hosts are experiencing.
 
   
Late at night, Felix returns to Livestock Management alone to work on his bird project. After a few moments, the bird actually starts to work properly and begins to fly around the room. He is distracted for a moment by a noise and loses sight of it. Looking for the bird, with a smile on his face, he slowly turns and finds the source of the noise. Maeve is sitting upright on the gurney, the bird perched on her finger. She is very much awake and alert. She says: “Hello Felix. It’s time you and I had a chat.”<ref>[[Contrapasso]]</ref>

Maeve wanders Sweetwater with her new heightened intelligence, testing her ability to improvise. She enters the [[Mariposa Saloon]] and has a conversation with Clementine, trying to see wether it's possible for her to become self-aware as well. A tech crew freezes all the hosts in the saloon and Maeve has to pretend to be affected, grabbing a small knife in case they're looking for her. They take Clementine instead.
 
 
To find out where Clementine is Maeve shoots herself and is taken to [[Livestock Management]] to be repaired. While she is being operated on by Felix and another employee she grabs Felix' arm when the assistant turns away, letting him know she wants to talk. She demands to know where Clementine has been taken and Felix takes her through the [[Behavior Lab and Diagnostics]] area where she witnesses Clementine being decommissioned. She is visbly distressed by this. Sylvester, who is performing the decommissioning, notices her through the glass walls and meets with her and Felix in one of the Behaviour rooms afterwards. He gives a weak explanation of why he was decommissioning Clementine, and Maeve tells them both that she wants to escape the park. Sylvester protests, saying it's a suicide mission, to which Maeve replies that she has died a million times, and is great at it. To get her point across she tells him "Have you ever died before? Because if you don't help me, I'll kill you."

Maeve stands at the bar in Mariposa and watches all the people at the tables, bored, thanks to her self-awareness. She hears Clementine's pick-up line and turns around, only to see Clem's replacement, a blonde Host that recites Clem's script and flirts with a male guest. Maeve watches in disgust as the replacement convinces the guest to come upstairs with her, and comes over to talk to Maeve, saying all the same things Clementine would say before leaving with the guest.
 
 
Maeve finishes her drink and suddenly relives the memory of being with her Host child. The scene cuts to her sitting in one of the behaviour rooms, as she tells Sylvester and Lutz what she sees. She admits that she doesn't know what's real anymore, Sweetwater or her memory. Lutz explains that Host minds are different, and that they experience memories with perfect recall, as opposed to humans. Maeve asks after the girl in her memory, and Lutz offers to check where she is, but Maeve says it doesn't matter since every relationship she had was a lie. She repeats her intention to leave the park. Lutz protests that she doesn't know anything about the outside world, but Sylvester agrees she should leave. Maeve, amused, says she knows that there is a small explosive embedded in all the Hosts' spines that will detonate if they try to leave. The surgeons agree to remove it, but Lutz tells her that she will still need an army to escape the park.
 
 
Maeve agrees with him, and takes his tablet. She says she will need allies, and asks for administrative privileges. She states it is "Time to write my own f*cking story" and begins working on the tablet.
 
 
Later on while Maeve is still working on the tablet, Sylvester walks in and reveals that the higher ups are getting agitated. He tells Maeve to give the tablet back, as they have to return to normal so no one gets suspicious of them. She hands it to Lutz, and says that she is finished anyway, musing about the parts of her code she can't reach. She asks who Arnold is. Sylvester, agitated, ignores her and tells her that those pieces of code can stay dormant, ranting that if she wants things like that changed she should go up to [[Behavior Lab and Diagnostics|Behaviour]] and blackmail a technician to help her, making her someone else's problem.
 
 
Maeve says she doesn't have time for that, and asks them to take her there during shift change. She addresses Lutz directly, saying that the things she wants changed are quite sophisticated, but she will write them down for him. She then looks at Sylvester, and says that after that she will be someone else's problem.
 
 
Sylvester steps outside the room and has a conversation with Lutz, where he reveals his plan to take Maeve up to Behaviour and wipe her clean, then smash her face and say they found her like that. Maeve watches, smiling, through the glass walls. Lutz walks back in and tries to act normal, failing.
 
 
The surgeons take Maeve up to Behaviour, where she lays out what she wants changed. Lutz hesitantly tells her that she must be shut down, and she lies back, allowing him to do it. Before she is shut down she wishes Sylvester good luck, confusing him. Lutz brings up the window to reformat a host, but hesitates to go through with it.

Template:Infobox/Host Charater

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.

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 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

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.

Dolores Abernathy

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.
