Season 1 episodes (15)

1 The Original
In the series premiere, another day of fantasy plays out in Westworld – a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android “hosts.” But top programmer Bernard Lowe (series star JEFFREY WRIGHT) alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford (series star ANTHONY HOPKINS) about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher’s daughter named Dolores (series star EVAN RACHEL WOOD) encounters a gunslinger named Teddy (series star JAMES MARSDEN) in the street – but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black (series star ED HARRIS) and, later, by a supporting host’s unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.
2 Chestnut
A pair of guests, first-timer William (series star JIMMI SIMPSON) and repeat visitor Logan (series star BEN BARNES), arrive at Westworld with different expectations and agendas. Bernard and Quality Assurance head Theresa Cullen (series star SIDSE BABETT KNUDSEN) debate whether a recent host anomaly is contagious. Meanwhile, behavior engineer Elsie Hughes (series star SHANNON WOODWARD) tweaks the emotions of Maeve (series star THANDIE NEWTON), a madam in Sweetwater’s brothel, in order to avoid a recall. Cocky programmer Lee Sizemore (series star SIMON QUARTERMAN) pitches his latest narrative to the team, but Dr. Ford has other ideas. Meanwhile, the Man in Black conscripts a condemned man, Lawrence (series star CLIFTON COLLINS, JR.), to help him uncover Westworld’s deepest secrets.
3 The Stray
Elsie and Head of Security Stubbs (series star LUKE HEMSWORTH) head into the hills in pursuit of a missing host. Teddy gets a new backstory, which sets him off in pursuit of a new villain, leaving Dolores alone in Sweetwater. Bernard investigates the origins of madness and hallucinations within the hosts. William finds an attraction he’d like to pursue and drags Logan along for the ride.

6 The Adversary
Elsie discovers a possible source of sabotage, while Bernard searches for clues to anomalies in a sector thought to be abandoned. Theresa questions Ford’s leadership while Lee encounters a new arrival at Westworld. Meanwhile, Maeve charms Lutz (guest star LEONARDO NAM), and the Man in Black and Teddy run afoul of a Union garrison in their attempt to cross a border.
7 Trompe L'Oeil
With Theresa’s assistance, Charlotte aims to expose dangerous flaws in Ford’s creations. William, Dolores and Lawrence journey into treacherous terrain. Maeve delivers an ultimatum to Lutz and Sylvester. With his back to the wall, Bernard considers his next move.

Maeve approached Sweetwater’s longtime outlaw, Hector, with a bold proposition. William tries to convince Logan to help liberate Dolores. Teddy and the Man in Black come closer to what they’re looking for. Stubbs’s suspicions are aroused. And Ford cautions Bernard against seeking answers to questions best left unasked.

About this show

Escape is not freedom. Chaos is not revolution. Independence is not negotiable. And free will is not free. Welcome back to Westworld, the Emmy®-winning drama series that follows the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. In Season Three, the real gods are coming... and they are very angry. Born into a world of pain, Westworld’s android hosts were never allowed to go or see one place: our world. But now, at the end of the game, they’re here. With the help of Aaron Paul’s very human Caleb, Dolores is ready to start a revolution. And if that doesn’t work, she can do it the old-fashioned way... and kill everyone. Aaron Paul, Vincent Cassell, Lena Waithe and Scott Mescudi join Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores, Jeffrey Wright’s Bernard, Thandie Newton’s Maeve and Ed Harris’s William in the new season, which explores the nature of our reality, free will and what makes us human.

I love the soundtrack/music, it exceeds the storyline and overly overdone complex jumps in chronology for the sake of keeping an audience guessing.... to return 7-days later for more brainracking anachronistic puzzles! I love, however, the music/soundtrack! After too many episodes toward the end of Season 1, things begin to make sense. But an audience with no patience and a teenage or 20-something year old attention-span would NEVER make it to Season 2! Have I said how much the soundtrack/music..

I actually love this show, but its getting 1 star because it's hampered by dumb corporate decisions. Can someone tell me why I can't watch the show with a season pass/purchase through Google? It's rediculous to have to pay for a subscription only on HBO and then later buy it at basically the same price through Google. That's just a hastle. I'm not going to do that. I, like most people are subscriptioned out. This is the same reason people started pirating in the first place, barriers to content. Get rid of the barriers. Basically all they're making me do is wait, which is a pretty crappy way to treat your fans.

The locations selected are very beautiful and western. The overall concept is very interesting. Unfortunately, the go to word for script writers is "F__K." To me, that shows a lack of vocabulary. It is used over and over so many times, hearing it gets old in a hurry. Season 1 was the best. So far follow-on seasons have become less interesting. You would need multiple doctorates in psychology and psychiatry to keep up. If the show is picked up for a fifth season, there has to be better writing.
