HBO has just released the titles and descriptions for the first five episodes of the upcoming ‘Westworld’ Season 2. While some are rather snarky and sarcastic, all of them are cryptic. The show creators gave fans two little surprises: one description is written in Japanese, and two episodes are more than 60 minutes long! Here are the official details on the first five episodes of the sci-fi drama:
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.”
Written by Lisa Joy and Roberto Patino; directed by Richard J. Lewis.
Episode 12 (Season 2, Episode 2): ‘Reunion’
“Why don’t we start at the beginning?”
Written by Carly Wray and Jonathan Nolan; directed by Vincenzo Natali.
Episode 13 (Season 2, Episode 3): ‘Virtù e Fortuna’
“There is beauty in who we are. Shouldn’t we, too, try to survive?”
Written by Roberto Patino and Ron Fitzgerald; directed by Richard J. Lewis.
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.”
Written by Gina Atwater and Jonathan Nolan; directed by Lisa Joy.
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)”
Written by Dan Dietz; directed by Craig Zobel.
‘Westworld’ returns to HBO on April 22!

Season 2 also brings newcomers Katja Herbers (as seasoned guest Grace), Jonathan Tucker (commanding military officer Major Craddock), and Neil Jackson (some nice guy named Nicholas).
