More proof that Logan is really the Man in Black?
So has nobody noticed the faint scar on the MiB's left cheek which just happens to be where Dolores slashed Logan in episode 9? Also, Logan was the one who cut Dolores open to reveal her mechanical insides. Even though William says he finally understands how to play the game in the end, he kills and dismembers the soldiers in the camp only after Logan slices Dolores open. I know their coloring off, with Logan having dark hair and brown eyes and MiB having light hair and blue eyes. That's been one of my biggest sticking points, but I just don't quite buy that William is really MiB.
I actually think that MiB was trying to induce trauma to make Dolores come "alive" in those scenes, similar to what happened to Maeve when he killed Maeve's child. He fell in love with her when he was William and is trying to induce that part of her to come alive again.
Connection Between Wyatt (Ford's creation) and MiB's quest (revolving around Arnold)
The Man in Black is looking for the final piece of "the puzzle" (some quest that originated with Arnold) and after talking to the little girl in Las Mudas he winds up at the blood arroya with Armistice (snake lady). He then thinks the reasoning behind her tattoo is the next clue he needs. Armistice later tells him the story behind her tattoo has to do with Wyatt.
My question is this: Didn't Ford just recently create the Wyatt narrative in response to giving Teddy a good backstory and ultimately assisting him in keeping Dolores in her loop? How does the MiB’s quest revolving around Arnold (whose been dead for decades now) get connected to a recent addition to the park by Ford??
I don't think that we are seeing all the events in the correct order. We don't know exactly how Ford's narrative changes with Wyatt fits into MIB's current visit. Ford did tell Teddy that the Wyatt story was based in truth - he also mentioned that Wyatt
Wyatt may be a decommissioned host that Ford is bringing back into the narrative. Teddy mentions that he had 'strange ideas and then disappeared for a few weeks', so could have just come back as a different character, but bearing the same secrets.
Another possibility is that Ford has now realized th...

MIB == Logan
Guys don't you think Logan is MIB? My theory is as follows:
William says to Delores in the train that he had discovered himself and something along the lines of him belonging here in WW to be able to freely express himself than out in the real world.
So what I believed happened is he went along with Delores on the quest to the maze and eventually transcended into system. I believe the maze is where you AI and human consciousness transcend and become one.
Then something happens (maybe the catastrophic incident) which resulted in Delores not being able to join William in the maze.
Logan probably got away from his sticky situation where he got captured and realizes that he had lost William for good and been coming in to the park for 30 odd years to figure out / he decided to buy out the park. He later on figures out about the maze and is on a quest to find out what made William take such a decision.
Non-linear timeline clues: Can of Milk, Wanted Posters...
There are some interesting clues regarding non-linear timelines: in Episode 2 when William picks up the can of milk, its the one on the right but in Episodes 1 and 3, when the MIB/Teddy pick up the can of milk, its the one of the left. Notice how they're slightly different.
This could just be a production error or maybe it's meant to give us some clue that William / MIB are in different or non-linear timelines.
In theory Dolores went all Wyatt just before opening the park, causing so much damage to the hosts (and designer team) that they only could open thanks to a benefactor who bankrolled them. That's supposed to be William/Man in Black.
However, William/MIB would only have had the disposition and resources to bankroll the park after some time. And he only went for the first time at the behest of his soon-to-be brother in law, who had already gone many times himself (he was quite familiar with what quests would be too vanilla/boring for him).
