Westworld gets lost in the darkness: About S2E9
"Emily's death"
That makes sense from a writer’s standpoint, because major characters represent a time investment on the part of the audience, and an important story tool—if you’re going to get rid of someone we’ve been watching for weeks, you need to make sure that the net gain of the sacrifice is worth the loss.
“Vanishing Point” works best when it’s telling a story about a man who keeps breaking his family just by being himself.

Why I Taught My Son to Speak Russian | The New Yorker
As the psycholinguist François Grosjean stresses, language is the product of necessity. If a child discusses, say, hockey only with his Russian-speaking father, he may not learn until later how to say “puck” in English. But he’ll learn when he has to.

I see friends who came over at the same time as I did but didn’t keep up their Russian raising their kids entirely in English. Sometimes I feel sorry for them and all they’re missing; at other times, envious. They have finally liberated themselves from Russia’s yoke, just as their parents wanted them to. They are free to be themselves around their children, to express themselves with ease. They always know the words for scooter and goat and sheep.

Most of us were more comfortable in English than in Russian, and none of us had any wish to repatriate. Why, then, were we doing this? What did we want to pass on to our children, exactly? Certainly nothing about Russia as it is currently constituted. Perhaps it was fitting that we were listening to children’s songs.
