The teaser for the fourth season of Westworld that dropped last month was tonally evocative and visually gorgeous, nevertheless it advised us little or no about what to anticipate from the narrative. Now we’ve the total trailer, and it has made us desirous to be taught extra, because it appears to be like just like the present is about to go into some very fascinating locations.
(Spoilers for prior seasons under.)
As we have reported previously, Westworld‘s third season was the primary to happen largely exterior the tightly managed surroundings of the unique theme parks. Opening three months after the occasions of the S2 finale, Dolores (Evan Rachel Woods) had re-created her host physique. We discovered she was focusing on an AI system known as Rehoboam, which was developed by an organization known as Incite. To entry the system, Dolores needed to tackle its creator, Engerraund Serac (Vincent Cassel), and numerous different adversaries with their very own motives for stopping her—together with William, aka the Man in Black (Ed Harris), who vowed to destroy any remaining hosts.
Within the S3 finale, Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) and Dolores battled it out, and Dolores ended up within the fingers of Serac. She was linked to Rehoboam however refused to present Serac any knowledge concerning the hosts, so he deleted her recollections. It was really fairly a transferring scene, as in her final moments, Dolores made an emotional attraction to persuade Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) to activate Serac. Rehoboam was deleted, William was seemingly killed by a number duplicate of himself, and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) discovered that the system was merely delaying the collapse of human civilization quite than stopping it. He entered the Elegant, hoping to determine methods to rebuild. The ultimate shot was Bernard re-emerging into his physique, lined in mud—so who is aware of how a lot time had handed?
Because the collection has progressed, it has turn into more durable and more durable to maintain monitor of the convoluted plot, a number of timelines, and characters—who’s a number, who’s human, who was human and is now being managed by a number, which host is through which physique, and so forth. The third season undoubtedly unraveled a bit within the second half, though the finale was fairly highly effective, giving us hope for the fourth season.
This new trailer supplies extra hope concerning the route of the collection. It opens with the host previously often known as Dolores waking up as a brand new persona, Christina, recognized as a author. Her voiceover informs us that that is the story of a lady who can see what no one else can: “That there is one thing improper with the world. And that it is her fault.”
In the meantime, Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) has captured the Man in Black. “Your form made a sport out of looking us,” she tells him as we see a small bug crawl into his eye. “You managed our each transfer, and now I’ll do the identical to you. It is time to evolve into the species that we have been meant to turn into.” Bernard might need discovered a path towards realizing that evolution. However what if, as one other voiceover contends, “We’re not right here to transcend. We’re right here to destroy.”
Plainly Maeve has recreated a Westworld prototype of some kind; a horrified Caleb (Aaron Paul) finds himself in the midst of it simply as all the pieces units into movement. There’s a montage of explosions, combat scenes, and an assault by a creepy, faceless android host, plus a short shot of Teddy Flood (James Marsden) wanting much more violent than his authentic programming supposed. The ultimate shot exhibits Caleb screaming as flies crawl over his face, presumably searching for an orifice by way of which to enter the physique and assume management. Christina would possibly need a story with a contented ending, however there are clearly forces at work intent on making certain she does not get it.
The fourth season of Westworld premieres on HBO Max on June 26, 2022.
