  • Fired up Westworld has a bit to go before it can match Daenerys’ dragons

Bernard is not pleased with what Charlotte has been up to.HBOWarning: Huge spoilers for "Westworld" season two. You can hear it in the fabulous way Wood plays with her vocal register in the episode, raising it for her rancher's daughter shtick, lowering it as Wyatt, finding a new tone for her own voice.

Don't forget to watch the premiere of the second season of Westworld tonight on HBO! But it still throws in some action and promises some excellent (if confusing) storylines for season two. After the HBO show spent a season exploring the Western amusement park and pointing out the others that could possibly exist, the premiere of the follow-up season never slowed down.

According to Karl Strand, a new character and the Head of Operations, the parks within Delos Destinations lost communication for about two weeks.

Oh, but there's so much more that we don't know.

In the opening scene, Arnold tells Dolores, "I dreamt I was on an ocean, with you and the others on the distant shore..." This gives us a better idea of where and what exactly this land of expansive parks is.

All the while, Bernard seems to be falling apart while Charlotte tries to locate a host that Delos is waiting for before they send in any help.

Bernard's timeline is a bit scattered in this episode.

Bernard has a series of flashbacks and maybe even glimpses into the future and suddenly wakes up to find himself lying on the beach. Bernard is also trying to hide the fact that he is a host from Charlotte, but is malfunctioning and has to fix himself without her noticing. When investigating the anomaly, Delos' security agents and Bernard find that Teddy is among the dead. Charlotte takes them to another secret station that Bernard didn't even know about.

By the present day, he had become Westworld's main financial investor and returned regularly under the guise of the Man in Black, playing the park in the most violent way possible.

But her campaign might have another victim, revealed in the closing moments of the episode, when a group of hosts are found lifeless and floating in the middle of a newly discovered body of water.




Dolores is on a murder spree.

.

We need to get used to this new, harder-edged Dolores who is no longer just the pretty girl welcoming people to Westworld. "And I have one last role to play". But he also doesn't stop her.

While fans of the series expected a massacre, it appears that the only named victim of Dolores's initial attack against her former oppressors was Robert Ford.

Dolores fought back against The Man in Black but was stabbed and died in Teddy's (James Marsden) arms. "Have you achieved what you wanted?" "Congratulations, William. This game is meant for you".

Maeve is on a mission.

.

Simon Quarterman as Sizemore and Thandie Newton as Maeve in "Westworld".

They find Hector in the pool area.

And while there are hosts there, they're all dead.

It's a joy to watch and be reunited with such well-loved characters particularly Bernard, who is in full existential crisis mode and caught up in between the humans and the hosts.
