A pair of guests, first-timer William and repeat visitor Logan, arrive at Westworld with different expectations and agendas. Bernard and Quality Assurance head Theresa Cullen debate whether a recent host anomaly is contagious. Meanwhile, the Man in Black conscripts a condemned man, Lawrence, to help him uncover Westworld’s deepest secrets.

In addition, the series premieres of Sarah Jessica Parker’s Divorce and Issa Rae’s Insecure, which will air on HBO on Sunday evening, are also available to stream now via the premium cabler’s portals.
