"I've always loved the way the sci-fi genre empowers female characters. Maeve kicks so much ass on Westworld that I find myself audibly cheering for her during every episode. In season two, Maeve grows even more complex. A few reasons to love her: she surrenders her mission to save her daughter to help a fellow mother avenge the death of her child, she utilizes her increased intelligence to fight back against oppressors, and she leads fellow hosts to salvation by creating her own utopia within the chaos."
