The genius of Westworld had it so even the most minor characters leave an impression, so much so that the return of Talulah Riley’s battered bot finally unlocked our mystery box. We don’t know what further mysteries Season 2 holds in store, but Riley’s mysterious Host will be back full-time to introduce us to them.

Here’s a question for you: does James Franco continue to make juvenile comedies as a way of subsidizing his serious work, or does he make serious movies to provide himself the latitude to make juvenile comedies? I honestly have no idea. For every The Night Before, there seems to be an As I Lay Dying; for every Why Him?, a Child of God. While many actors and aspiring filmmakers try to find their niche and consolidate their power, Franco seems to be split pretty evenly among his penchant for comedy and his desire for drama. He could win an Oscar or a Razzie at any given moment.

Last night’s episode of Westworld, “Trace Decay,” featured a lengthy speech from the show’s mysterious Man in Black (Ed Harris) supposedly explaining his origins. He’s a “good guy” who spent his life as a philanthropist and family man. After his wife’s death, an apparent suicide, the Man was so distraught he came to Westworld looking to commit a truly horrible act. And thus this new persona was born.

Tonight’s ‘Westworld’ Had a Great Easter Egg From the ‘Westworld’ Movie

HBO’s Westworld is inspired by the 1973 science-fiction film of the same name by Michael Crichton. The two share the same premise — a Wild West-inspired theme park populated by lifelike robots, which eventually gain sentience — but none of the same characters, and only a vaguely similar storyline. At least they didn’t share any characters until the episode that aired earlier tonight, “The Adversary.” (Obviously this is going to SPOIL something about said episode, so if you don’t want to know it, don’t read it, dumb-dumb.)
