The tides are really shifting in Westworld, and the hosts are now experiencing things that creators are starting to fear.
In the episode 4 synopsis released by CarterMatt, Dolores Abernathy goes on a new adventure with the unlikeliest duo.
The synopsis for “Dissonance Theory” reads: “Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) joins William (Jimmi Simpson) and Logan (Ben Barnes) on a bounty hunt in the badlands. The Man in Black (Ed Harris), with Lawrence (Clifton Collins, Jr.) in tow, finds a critical clue in his search to unlock the maze. Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) and Theresa (Sidse Babett Knudsen) discuss the future of the park. Maeve (Thandie Newton) is troubled by a recurring vision.”
Meanwhile, in the trailer for the upcoming episode, Ben Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) teases Dolores with the thing she desires above all else — her freedom.
“There’s something I’d like you to try. It’s a game - a maze. The goal is to find the center of it. If you can do that, then maybe you can be free,” he told her.
Dolores mechanically replies, “I think I want to be free.”
The scenes change at once and Dr. Robert Ford’s (Anthony Hopkins) voice is now heard. He is threatening someone, most likely a park guest, but for what reason - fans do not know yet.
“We know everything about our guests, as we know everything about our employees. So I will ask you nicely - Don’t get in my way,” he warned.
Show creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are really hoping the series will resonate well with fans. Nolan said the show is all about figuring out how people behave when no one is looking or keeping score. But there’s no such things as complete abandon because “you have to deal in these transgressions.”
“We expect the show to be thought-provoking, because it’s thought-provoking for us,” Joy earlier told Wired.
“Westworld” airs every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.[[nid:2408310]]
