The violent delights of Westworld are about to finally have their violent ends.

The first season of HBO’s new sci-fi hit comes to a close Sunday with its tenth episode, the 90-minute Jonathan Nolan-directed “The Bicameral Mind,” and the network has released four photos to tee up the culmination to come.

They show the conflicted Teddy (James Marsden) looking shocked amongst what looks like a massacre at Sweetwater, Maeve (Thandie Newton) and her growing team of rebellious robots along with technician Felix (Leonardo Nam), and Dolores, both in her blue dress and gunslinger outfits, along with the Man in Black, who stands with her in one photo next to a grave bearing her name.

That’s without seeing misanthropic creator Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins), scheming corporate executive Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), secruity officer Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) and the other staff/guests/hosts who populate the park. And did episode 9 really spell the end of Bernard a.k.a. Arnold (Jeffrey Wright)? Don’t worry; the showrunners assured the finale would answer all of the show’s questions – except one: where does it go next?
