If you tuned into the Game of Thrones finale on HBO last night (and if not, what are you doing with your life?), you may have been lucky enough to catch the first trailer for Westworld‘s third season. That’s right, HBO aired it just before the final episode of Thrones, and it looks amazing! In case you missed it, check it out below the cut.
We get a good look at new addition Aaron Paul‘s character, who features prominently in the trailer. As Pink Floyd’s “Brain Damage” plays, we hear Paul’s voice saying, “Sometimes it seems like the world looks all right, like they put a coat of paint on it. But inside it’s rotting to pieces.” The scenes are mostly of Paul’s character moving through a modern city as his voice laments the state of the world, intercut with shots of a familiar blonde woman who at one point can be seen shooting men and dragging a body across the ground.
Paul’s character appears to be a thief, and we get our first look at Lena Waithe as well, as his partner in crime. The trailer closes with Paul encountering the blonde woman, revealed to be Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood). She seems injured, and he asks if she needs help as she emerges from the shadows…a strange and slightly terrifying look on her face.
Judging from this trailer, the bulk of the action will likely take place in the “real” world, but hopefully we will still see the parks (or what’s left of them) and the hosts that were left behind. What do you think? Sound off in the comments!
