After Westworld Season 2's wild finish, fans have been debating where the show would go next. Then the first trailer arrived, and the answer turned out to be far more complicated. An entirely new cast was introduced, all of whom lived in the real world. For the first time, the stakes had been upped. This was no longer a game where hosts are endlessly resurrected. Now they're playing for all the marbles. But these details in the Westworld Season 3 trailer suggests that fans should step on the brakes. Nothing is what it seems.
That's been true of Westworld since the very beginning. Timelines that seemed concurrent were decades apart, like William and Dolores versus Dolores and the Man-In-Black. Characters believed to be humans were hosts, from Bernard to Stubbs. Sometimes they weren't just hosts, they had their control units replaced, so they were other hosts in disguise. That last one was quite a turn, as fans discovered the evil Delos board member Charlotte Hale had been dead for several episodes, and the Host Charlotte was Dolores in disguise.
So what does the new trailer tell us? If fans thought Season 2 was complicated, wait until they get a load of Season 3.
