Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eastwood is watching "the city of Lago volunteers" training,he is drinking a beer. The first time he lifts the glass to drink, it is about half empty. After he says something to the man with the knife, he lifts the glass for another drink and it is nearly full.
Plot hole: There's a huge, fatal flaw with the whole concept of having guns that cannot fire on human guests as it detects the body heat. Unfortunately it's a stone cold,100% certainty that with the amount of gunplay going on in Westworld, virtually every day someone is going to be killed by a ricochet. Ricocheting bullets can and do kill people, and any scientist capable of designing guns like the ones they use in Westworld must know that.
Other mistake: The objective of the band is a cache of gold hidden some years ago in the firebox of a wrecked locomotive in the wilds of Northern Mexico. When they finally dig the firebox door out and open it, the strongbox is sitting inside a completely clean firebox, with nary a cinder, ash, or chunk of burned wood in sight. If the loco and cars had been abandoned after the derailment, there would still have been residue in the firebox.
