Westworld Roundup: Simon Quarterman Confirms Shannon Woodward’s Return; Ed Harris Opens Up About MIB’s Violent Nature; Westworld Earns Golden Trailer Awards Noms

Elsie Teddy and Dolores on Westworld

After the end of season 1, many of the characters we came to know and love had uncertain futures ahead of them. Would we ever see Young William (Jimmi Simpson) or Logan (Ben Barnes) in another flashback? Would Maeve’s (Thandie Newton) outlaw sidekick Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) ever emerge alive and functional post-gunfight and grace our screens once again?

Luckily, all of the above-mentioned characters have already made it back into the narrative, at least for an episode or two. That being said, there’s still one character missing who, until very recently, was uncertain to return – the one and only Elsie Hughes (Shannon Woodward). Luckily, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Simon Quarterman (Lee Sizemore) confirmed that Elsie is indeed alive, and after doing a bit of digging, we found that she looks to be returning to our screens very soon!

New Photos Released for Westworld Episode 4, “Riddle of the Sphinx”

Lisa Joy Westworld

We are halfway to a new Westworld episode, and that means we have more photos courtesy of HBO! The upcoming episode is titled “The Riddle of the Sphinx” and is written by Gina Atwater and Jonathan Nolan. Lisa Joy makes her directorial debut this week, as you can see commemorated in the above photo. The synopsis reads: “Is this now? If you’re looking forward, you’re looking in the wrong direction,” so I think it’s safe to say we will see more flashbacks. Check out the rest of the photos below the cut!

Westworld Roundup: Thandie Newton on The Tables Turning; Jeffrey Wright Discusses His Mental Preparations for Bernard; Luke Hemsworth Talks About This Season’s Realistic Gore

Maeve Westworld

As we’ve seen so far in Westworld‘s second season, the power dynamic between the hosts and humans is completely changing. No longer are the humans entrapping the androids in a playground built for sinning; now, the hosts are the ones holding the humans hostage and dictating their own new set of rules.

Maeve (Thandie Newton) is one of these hosts blazing her own new trail in pursuit of her daughter, pulling in tow a group of humans and robots determined to help her reach her goal. In a recent interview with Refinery 29, the actress commented on this shift in the power dynamic, and specifically, the meaning behind the scene in the season premiere involving her insistence that Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) strip down naked.

Analysis: Westworld Season 2 Episode 3 Recap, “Virtù e Fortuna”

Dolores Westworld

Westworld at its most ideal seeks to be a story that is rooted in exploring the tragic, cyclical natures of violence and oppression. The two concepts, while standing just fine on their own, are nevertheless undeniably intertwined in their relationship. Oppression, the deliberate and often brutal subjugation of “the other,” is a system that is often created and maintained through the adoption of violence. Violence in its turn often relies upon systems of oppression to be adopted at all – whether the adoption is by the oppressors or the oppressed.

Westworld Season 2 trailer 16

As the week progresses and we inch closer to Westworld‘s third episode of the season this upcoming Sunday, more interviews with the show’s cast have popped up, so let’s take a look!

We start with Angela Sarafyan, who plays Clementine, a character we got to see briefly in the second episode as she assumed the role of piano player during the mainland party flashback. Although we haven’t yet seen much of her, especially in the show’s present timeline, Sarafyan promised to Marie Claire that that will soon change. “You’re going to see her freedom come to fruition. Her strength is definitely going to come out in the next few episodes.”
