A few days before the release of season 4, back on what you need to know about the previous seasons of Westworld.
In a few days, Westworld will reopen on HBO. After three seasons, with dense and convoluted intrigues, Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan’s series returns for a new burst of episodes. While the appointment is set for June 26, a look back at what you need to know before season 4.
Dolores is dead
Central character of the plot of the first seasons, Dolores disappeared in the finale of season 3. According to the creator Jonathan Nolan, the character that we have followed since the beginning has indeed disappeared. If Evan Rachel Wood will still be there, she should play new characters. In the trailer, we see her several times, in the skin of a certain Christina. This is a writer living in the big city. Note that several copies of Dolores are also scattered everywhere. The original, on the other hand, should not make a new appearance.
Maeve switches sides
She has been through things since her first steps in Westworld. The bereaved mother is only motivated by the prospect of reuniting with her daughter, in the distant valley. After teaming up with Serac (Vincent Cassel), she finally turned around to help Dolores in her quest for freedom. After eliminating him, she seems to take a keen interest in Caleb. Its purpose is currently rather obscure.
Bernard in the distant valley
Bernard was more discreet in season 3 of Westworld, the double robot of the creator of the park has nevertheless obtained the precious sesame to the distant valley. After donning the helmet, he was found in the post-credit scene in the same spot, covered in dust along with the rest of the room. He could thus have spent some time in this digital Eden. We can imagine that the series follows him again, but in the future. It’s far from the first time Westworld have fun with time. A new double narrative could thus be on the program.
Still a lot of mystery around William
Well, we must admit that the career of William alias The Man in Black is still rather obscure. While the series maintains doubts about its nature, host or human, this new season should make things even more complicated. After going to GQ in Delos, the man was left with a gash in his throat after his confrontation with Charlotte Hale and a robotic version of himself. Is he really dead? We already know that Ed Harris will be in the cast for this new season. The question is: which of the robot or the character that we have followed since season 1 will evolve before our eyes. One thing is certain: we should learn more about his past.
Caleb at the controls
Caleb is a human, but is also controlled by the Rehoboam computer. He indeed discovered that he killed his best friend and was brainwashed. Before witnessing Dolores’ disappearance, he had nevertheless obtained control of the Rehoboam program.
Charlotte Hale in the host camp
Charlotte Hale is dead, but the character has returned to our screens thanks to a screenplay sleight of hand. This is a copy of Dolores, who lost her mind when memories of Hale resurfaced. After killing (?) William, the young woman has obviously made it her mission to kill all humans to make the world safer for the hosts.
If you want to rewatch important footage from previous seasons, head over to the video below. Aware that some viewers may have forgotten most of the intrigue of the series, the channel shared a recap in images of the first three seasons.
Otherwise, you can discover the first images of season 4. It will obviously be a question of exploring a new park, populated by gangsters. If there is little chance that we will find the arid desert of Westworldthe prospect of discovering a new universe is rather enticing.
It must be said that season 3 had a hard time finding its guiding line, the turn towards science fiction was not easy for the series, let’s hope things improve with this new burst of episodes . In any case, the series should continue to give us a hard time.
