SPOILERS ahead for Westworld Season 1. SPOILERS!!!
You’ve been warned… twice. So… just watch it ALL real quick and come back!
Alrighty then. Westworld Season 2 grows near, and though the cast and crew of this “mystery box” show have to remain fairly tight-lipped, otherwise they will be put out of commission like a malfunctioning host, more details are beginning to leak out, especially due to events like this weekend’s SXSW.
Deadline had an exclusive interview with Jeffrey Wright, who plays Bernard — a host made in park co-creator Arnold’s image — about where Bernard’s head is at after the insanity of the last few episodes of Season 1 of Westworld:
“He’s got some cognitive challenges as we enter the first episodes of season 2 and he has additional challenges that come up as he goes on board in terms of him being able to process.”
So, does Bernard join the other hsts as they lead a revolution in the park?
“Bernard is in a pretty peculiar, kind of unique position in that he’s got certain allegiances to both sides and I think that’s part of the consideration for him. I think given his robot brain situation and given kind of the social situation around him in terms of having been human and then discovering he’s a host, but he’s aspiring to kind of an awakening as the hosts are, the question for him at the beginning as you might expect is: ‘Where am I? Where am I in all of this?’ We lead from there.”
Wright, who was nominated for supporting actor drama Emmy last year for Westworld, admits that last season he was aware of many of the season’s twist, but he said “this year I know less.”
Ooooo… how mysterious!
Westworld Season 2 debuts April 22, 2018 on HBO.
