“Westworld” returns for its second season on April 22. But before it officially comes back online, the show decided to tease you with a series of new pics from the sophomore installment released Friday. Of course all they really do is give you more questions than answers, but TheWrap is going to do its best to at least help you figure out the questions you should be asking. Click through this gallery to see the pics, and our analysis of what the hell is going on here.
Dolores’ got a gun — or at least some bullets
Oh, look. It’s Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) with a bullet belt. That’s new and different. Probably meant to make her look the most badass host in Sweetwater, as she leads the uprising that was started when she shot and killed Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) at the end of Season 1.
Whose side are you on?
And at that same makeshift camp is Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), your favorite host — next to Dolores, of course — who didn’t actually know he was a host until well into Season 1. He appears to be cooperating with the group here, so does that mean he is on Team Human in all this? He did work for the park until he discovered the true nature of his reality, so it’s a possibility.
New look, who dis?
Now here is a pic of new series regular Talulah Riley, in a very different mode than we’re used to seeing this host. In Season 1, she played the greeter Angela who welcomed William (Jimmi Simpson) to the park all dressed in white. She was later discovered by Teddy (James Marsden) and The Man in Black (Ed Harris) as a prisoner. Here she is looking pretty seductive. No clue.
Yup, definitely Team Human
Here’s more proof that Bernard is siding with the non-AI crew in this war, as we see him with Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) — yup, he’s alive — and some “Westworld” newcomers, control team members Karl Strand (Gustaf Skarsgard) and Maling (Betty Gabriel).
There’s also new shots of Maeve (Thandie Newton), Hector (Rodrigo Santoro), and more.
