The Ladies of Westworld Start A Revolution in Season 2.
We always suspected that the hosts would have their revenge. Peter Abernathy even promised it. The Westworld season 2 trailer, which debuted this past week during Superbowl 52, was a true gem. From all appearances, it seems Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve (Thandie Newton) are leading a revolution of sorts, one inside the backstage and the other across the countryside.
Most interesting was a glimpse of Peter Abernathy, (Louis Herthum) shown left, who is our long lost deactivated host, strapped and gagged to a table presumably trying to get free. You may recall that Peter was put in cold storage early on in season 1 because he was malfunctioning. Eagle eyed fans discovered some hidden clues in the video suggesting there may be as many as 6 parks running under the Delos corporation. Clues took fans over to Delos Destinations, the fictional corporate site for Westworld. Discoveries included an image of Delos founder James Delos, (seen below) played by scottish actor Peter Mullan who will presumably be part of the season 2 cast.
Interestingly, back in late 2016, director Jonathan Nolan told the Hollywood Reporter “For Lisa and myself, with this show, we never had any intention of staying in one place. We don’t want to shoot on the same sets for 10 years. We want to blow the sets up and move onto another piece of the story. So we said when we started working on the series that we wanted to be ambitious. We wanted each season to increase in that ambition and in the scope of the show. It also follows the story of our hosts. Their lives begin in loops, and then expand and change and grow. It’s an origin of a new species. We want to follow that story all the way to the bitter end.” As always, composer Ramin Djawadi, set the musical tone for the season with a cover of Kanye West’s “Runaway”. Djawadi is credited for providing much of the music to Westworld season 1.
WESTWORLD is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
