‘Westworld’ Episodes 6 Through 9 Get Synopses As Puzzling As The Show


The second-half of Westworld‘s first season just got a little clearer. Kind of.

HBO released the summaries of the next four episodes of the sci-fi drama and, typical of the network who described the “Hardhome” episode of Game of Thrones as “Jon travels”, they are as obtuse as they explanatory. Check them out below.

  • Episode 6, “The Adversary”, directed by Frederick E.O. Toye, airs this Sunday, Nov. 6.

“Maeve (Thandie Newton) charms Lutz (Leonardo Nam); Elsie (Shannon Woodward) uncovers possible sabotage; the Man in Black (Ed Harris) and Teddy (James Marsden) run afoul of a garrison.”

  • Episode 7, “Trompe L’Oeil”, directed by Frederick E.O. Toye, airs Sunday, Nov. 13

“Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson) journey into treacherous terrain; Maeve (Thandie Newton) delivers an ultimatum; Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) considers his next move.”

  • Episode 8, “Trace Decay”, directed by Stephen Williams (Lost), airs Sunday, Nov. 20

“Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) struggles with a mandate; Maeve (Thandie Newton) looks to change her script; Teddy (James Marsden) is jarred by dark memories.”

  • Episode 9, “The Well-Tempered Clavier”, directed by Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad & Game of Thrones, airs Sunday, Nov. 27

“Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) reconnect with their pasts; Maeve (Thandie Newton) makes a bold proposition to Hector (Rodrigo Santoro); Teddy (James Marsden) finds enlightenment, at a price.”

What are your theories on where the first season goes next? The 10th and final episode of the season “The Bicameral Mind” will air in December. Westworld airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
