You probably know that HBO’s hit new series Westworld is based on an old movie, also named Westworld, written and directed by Michael Crichton. But did you know there already was a Westworld TV show? After Westworld became a hit in theaters (and after a sequel, Futureworld, a few years later), CBS aired a series called Beyond Westworld. The show wasn’t nearly as successful as the new Westworld; only five episodes were produced, and just three aired on television. So with its first season finale days away, the new Westworld is already much more successful than the last one. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?

The 90-minute “Bicameral Mind” will leave one major question for Season 2, but according to producers, will at least answer Season 1's big questions.

Or a little trauma can be deceptive. Tonight’s episode of Westworld, “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” named after a famous composition by Johann Sebastian Bach, showed both. For some characters, trauma opens their eyes to the reality that they’ve deliberately avoided. For others, trauma blocks them from discovering a truth.

There’s no end to the maze of Westworld mysteries, between humans becoming robots, or Jimmi Simpson becoming Ed Harris, so we wouldn’t begrudge the HBO drama planning more classical fake-outs. As such, a major character whose fate seemingly sealed in Sunday’s “Trace Decay” may not actually be dead, and may not be themselves at all. Wait, what?

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.
