Westworld 2×01 Journey into Night preview

Westworld 2×01 Journey into Night preview

And what questions does Season 2 need to answer? Those who escaped were hunted down by Dolores, who was set on turning her "dream" - a concept she learned from Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) in the season's creepy opening scene and first timeline of the episode - into reality. Is it the enslaved and oppressed robots, even though they're killing terrified humans indiscriminately?

We hear Strand arguing with a couple of Asian men in military garb on the beach as Bernard is getting his bearings, with Strand curtly pointing out that he has an "executive statement executed by your country giving Delos authority over this island", confirming theories that the parks are separated from the mainland, and that they definitely don't seem to be based anywhere close to the US.

As Bernard tries to make sense of his surroundings, he is led to an interactive map of the park as nearby hosts are being executed one by one.

The Man in Black gets his hat back.

. When Strand asks Bernard if he's regained any of his memory and if he knows why these hosts are all dead, Bernard responds with "I killed them". Bernard, still obviously struggling after learning he was a host last season, was injured, and after being taken to Charlotte's secret hatch (and meeting the ominous-looking drone hosts), he discovered he only had 72 hours of "life" left - and wasn't going to be extracted until he located Peter Abernathy (Louis Herthum).

Unlike the first season, fans now know that multiples time lines and non-linear narratives are part and parcel of the show - perhaps reflecting the disjointed minds of the hosts, who are re-programmed and put back on their loops.

Westworld Season 2 premieres on HBO tonight at 9:00 PM PST.




It's this particular story thread that feels like too much of a retread of Season 1 and all of the show's worst impulses. That way, you can delay signing up for a free trial for at least another week. She leaves three humans in nooses, and says, "I have one last role to play. myself". She then tells him that she has to show him the "truth", whatever that is.

Basically, Dolores' thirst for vengeance won't end with just the people who were at the park.

The big twist toward the end of Season 1 revealed that William (Jimmi Simpson) is actually a younger version of Man in Black (Ed Harris), so we got to see the beginnings of this character's long evolution into the obsessive man he's become.

William also realizes that the stakes are real in Westworld now. Maeve, who chose not to leave the park on the train last season and instead returned to find her daughter, saves him from becoming host dinner, and he persuades her that he can help on her mission.

There are, of course, some brand new mysteries for Season 2, such as Bill's new game, finding "the Door". Maeve also finds Hector Escaton to join them on their journey. As shown in tonight's episode, titled "Journey Into Night", the rest of the principal cast of Westworld survived Dolores's deadly attack on the gala.

Let the Season 2 games begin. I watch "Westworld" mostly to see all that HBO moola do its thing.
