New Westworld episode titles, synopses revealed

As the third season of Westworld continues, more mysteries are being revealed about the sci-fi drama. HBO just released the details for the second half of the third season.

According to a report by Collider, the season finale, which will air on May 3, will last for one hour and fifteen minutes. With all that is going on in the current season, the extra running time may be justified.

The third season of Westworld brings the hosts into the “real” world of humanity, a futuristic landscape that nevertheless hides a more sinister side. Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) is determined to start a revolution in order to overthrow the current world order and to build a new world for her kind to live in. She has recruited the human Caleb (Aaron Paul) into her nefarious scheme. Meanwhile, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) is trying to stop her and Maeve (Thandie Newton), the only host strong enough to challenge Dolores, finds herself reluctantly involved in this conflict.

Here are the writers, directors, titles, and teaser-like synopses for the last four episodes:

“Genre”
Synopsis: Just say no.
Written by Karrie Crouse & Jonathan Nolan; directed by Anna Foerster.

“Decoherence”
Synopsis: Do a lot of people tell you that you need therapy?
Written by Suzanne Wrubel & Lisa Joy; directed by Jennifer Getzinger.

“Passed Pawn”
Synopsis: A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
Written by Gina Atwater; directed by Helen Shaver.

“Crisis Theory”
Synopsis: Time to face the music.
Written by Denise Thé & Jonathan Nolan; directed by Jennifer Getzinger.

“Genre” may refer to a powerful drug that the very rich were taking during the masquerade auction in the latest episode. The rest of the episode titles and synopses are as mysterious as ever but also hint at an escalating tension. Either Caleb or William may be the one who has been advised to seek therapy in “Decoherence.” Who is the “real friend” referred to in “Passed Pawn”? And “Crisis Theory” will surely be another explosive Westworld season finale. With only four weeks left, the story is moving quickly.

Westworld airs every Sunday on HBO.
