Westworld season 2And now, here are the episode titles and brief descriptions for the first five episodes of Westworld (some of these quotes are familiar because we already heard them in the season 2 trailer):

Episode #11 (season 2, episode 1): “Journey into Night”

The puppet show is over, and we are coming for you and the rest of your kind. Welcome back to Westworld.

Episode #12 (season 2, episode 2): “Reunion”

Why don’t we start at the beginning?

Episode #13 (season 2, episode 3): “Virtù e Fortuna”

There is beauty in who we are. Shouldn’t we, too, try to survive?

Episode #14 (season 2, episode 4): “The Riddle of the Sphinx”

Is this now? If you’re looking forward, you’re looking in the wrong direction.

Episode #15 (season 2, episode 5): “Akane No Mai”

ショーグン・ワールドへようこそ (Welcome to Shogun World)

Now, while all of these titles are intriguing in themselves, I am most excited about the fifth episode, which is most likely going to be the episode completely in Japanese that the showrunners talked about and the one that would expand the show’s universe by giving us another magnificent park, Shogun World.

Westworld season two will premiere on April 22 on HBO.
