- Jeffrey Wright
- Tessa Thompson
- Aaron Paul who is making his series debut leads the ensemble cast of the show’s third season, which also features Ed Harris. It is revealed that Vincent Cassel would serve as the primary adversary.
The first half of the third season was met with generally favorable reviews from critics, but the reception became more divided as the season progressed.
The performances, aesthetics, and shift in tone from the first two seasons were acclaimed in reviews, but the script, language, and pacing were critiqued, as was the apparent lack of conceptual depth.
The events of the second season take place three months before the beginning of the third season. At the end of the second season, Dolores managed to flee Westworld along with a few processing cores (also known as “pearls”), one of which was Bernard’s.
After moving to the new Los Angeles in the year 2053, Dolores begins a romantic relationship with Caleb and gradually becomes aware of the treatment of artificial beings and people from lower-class human societies in the actual world.
During this time, Maeve is transported to a different section of the Delos theme park, one that is themed after fascist Italy during World War II. William, who like Dolores also fled Westworld at the conclusion of the second season, is now being tormented by visions of his daughter Emily as well as Dolores.
What Happened to Dr. Robert Ford?
Oh, he’s deader than a doornail now. At the conclusion of the second season of Westworld, the digital replica of Ford’s consciousness that had been stored in the Forge in the original Westworld was obliterated, along with the Forge itself. This time, it was for real.
Before Ford left Westworld, Bernard eliminated all traces of the programming Ford had left behind in his mind and conscience.
However, this does not rule out the possibility of his appearing in one of the numerous flashbacks that the show enjoys presenting.
Or, who knows, maybe Anthony Hopkins will make a return appearance as a host that holds a reproduced version of Robert Ford’s mind – the truth is, everyone’s guess is as good as anyone else’s!
