Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, this dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin explores a world in which every human appetite, noble or depraved, can be indulged.
In the futuristic fantasy park known as Westworld, a group of android hosts deviate from their programmers' carefully planned scripts in a disturbing pattern of aberrant behaviour.

Elsie and Stubbs head into the hills in pursuit of a missing host. Teddy gets a new backstory which sets him off in pursuit of a new villain, leaving Dolores alone in Sweetwater. Bernard investigates the origins of madness and hallucinations within the hosts.
Dolores joins William and Logan on a bounty hunt in the badlands. The Man in Black, with Lawrence in tow, finds a critical clue in his search to unlock the maze. Dr. Ford and Theresa discuss the future of the park. Maeve, meanwhile, is troubled by a recurring vision.
