We watch Westworld season 3 finale online tonight to see how this war continues. "Crisis Theory" marks the 8th episode of the season, and a chance for HBO's big budget series to send us home either happy that it's over or hungry for season 4.

Except we're already asking if it's even "our" world. We'll hopefully learn more as the season begins, and an AI rebellion pits droid against droid. 

Westworld season 3 release date, start time

At 9 p.m. Eastern tonight, "Crisis Theory," the 8th and final episode of Westworld season 3 airs and streams on HBO. 

Westworld season 3 looks to pit AI against AI, with the rebellious side of this not-so-civil war trying to convince humanity to enlist, as Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) is trying to convince Caleb (Aaron Paul) that he's more like the AI fighting for their independence than his human masters.

To learn the whole story about what precedes this, check out our Westworld timeline to review the full events of the first two seasons of the series.
