‘Westworld’ Episode 2 Released Online With ‘Insecure’ and ‘Divorce’
If you weren’t thoroughly convinced that Westworld was your new best friend, boy is HBO going to make sure you two kids play together until it sticks. Not only has a second episode been released online early, you can also take an early look at Issa Rae’s Insecure and Sarah Jessica Parker’s HBO return, Divorce.
Ahead of this weekend (as well as Sunday’s second presidential debate), HBO decided to drop the second episode of Westworld “Chestnut” on its various outlets, along with Insecure and Divorce. So reads the press released for Westworld’s “Chestnut,” while we’re at it:
A pair of guests, first-timer William (Jimmi Simpson) and repeat visitor Logan (Ben Barnes), arrive at Westworld with different expectations and agendas. Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Quality Assurance head Theresa Cullen (Sidse Babett Knudsen) debate whether a recent host anomaly is contagious. Meanwhile, behavior engineer Elsie Hughes (Shannon Woodward) tweaks the emotions of Maeve (Thandie Newton), a madam in Sweetwater’s brothel, in order to avoid a recall. Cocky programmer Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) pitches his latest narrative to the team, but Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) has other ideas. The Man in Black (Ed Harris) conscripts a condemned man, Lawrence (Clifton Collins, Jr.), to help him uncover Westworld’s deepest secrets.
You can find all three on HBO NOW and HBO GO, in addition to HBO On Demand and affiliate portals. Happy hunting!
